Good morning Year 4 and happy Easter! We hope you are all well. Thank you for sharing all of the lovely work you have been getting up to over the last two weeks, we have loved staying in touch with you. Below is a link to some nice Easter activities if you want to have a go (but you don’t have to, we just thought they looked like fun).
Enjoy your chocolate and stay safe.

HOME LEARNING INFORMATION AND RESOURCES

As you will already be aware, Shade School will be closed from the 20th March until further notice. Children who were in school on 20th March will have received a Home Learning Pack. Below I have added some ideas and useful links to keep Year 4 busy! I will keep this updated and send texts out when I have done so.

Any work that you or the children are proud of, please post to our Year 4 Twitter page as I would love to see them and reply to you!

We will be texting and keeping in touch via Twitter on a regular basis so that you can all show off what you have been up to! We want to hear about the home school learning you have done, TTRS achievements, Learning Log work - but also about anything else you have been up to - walks in the fresh air, gardening, art projects. Anything and everything - just keep in touch!

Important Information

  • Year 4 swim ONCE A FORTNIGHT ON A MONDAY. Children are either in group A or B. Children will need a swimming kit brought into school on this day.
  • Our P.E. day is now FRIDAY and children will need their P.E. kits in school for this.
  • Children may bring in a snack to enjoy during morning playtime. This must be a piece of fresh fruit or veg.
  • Our library day is FRIDAY. This is when children may take out or return books from our fabulous and well stocked school library!
  • Children have the opportunity to change their home reading books throughout the week.  Please make sure that your child is reading at home and write a comment in their reading records. It is wonderful to read parent comments.
  • Children are welcome to bring in age-appropriate reading books from home if they wish to read during quiet reading.  
  • Spelling homework goes home every Friday and is due in the following Friday for the weekly spelling quiz.
  • Once a half term / term, children will be given a Learning Log target.  This is a great way for children to demonstrate their individual skills and interpretations on the work we have been doing in class.  Children will then share their Learning Logs with each other. These will be sent home w/b 7th May and are due in w/b 15th July. (A letter will be given out at the beginning of term with more details.) We are really looking forward to seeing them at the end of term!

Safer Internet Day

We spent some time on Tuesday 11th February learning about Safer Internet Day. Our focus in Year 4 was social media: what it is, age restrictions that apply and how we can keep ourselves safe on the internet. Pupils really enjoyed discussing rules for keeping safe and producing work to display their rules.

 

Leeds Royal Armouries trip

We had a fantastic day here and learnt a lot about King Henry VIII and war !
