Due to the schools temporary closure we shall encourage all children to read at home using Myon, please encourage your child to learn their weekly spellings as normal and weekly tasks will be set on Purple Mash, Seesaw and MyMaths. Please look out for the links to be sent via text, this will give you access to 2 daily zoom lessons from Year 4 teachers.
It is important for each child in year four to be fluent with all their times tables, please support your child with this in song, repetition or games.
As of now we will be setting homework, please support your child to complete the weekly activities as follows:
Maths Homework - MyMaths will be set weekly.
English Homework - Purple Mash weekly activity.

Check Seesaw for extra tasks during school closures.

In year 4 we spend lots of time learning all our times table in preparation for the National test all our children will take in the summer. TT Rocks is a great way to challenge yourself and compete against each other. Remember you can access this from home too!
