Welcome to the Year 4 Class Page! 2020-21
Hello and welcome to a new half term (Spring 1). Our new themed approach for the Spring Term is ‘Footprints’. We will be thinking about historical footprints (Egyptians), digital footprints, geographical footprints (rivers) and scientific footprints. Please see this page for regular updates and homework/spellings, which I will add here and on our class Seesaw page. Homework will be set on Wednesdays to be in for the following Tuesday. Please send via email or via Seesaw. The new term will have PE revert to Wednesdays and Thursdays rather than Mondays as we will not be having Michael from PNE Community, so please ensure your child is wearing trainers on those days. Remote learning will be listed below. If you miss any for previous weeks click on the week commencing (W/C) links below- also check Seesaw.
The link below is a glossary of all the grammar terminology the children will come across throughout school.

Attached is a link to Blackburn Diocesan Daily Worship. The diocese have created ‘Daily worship during lockdown’. Using the themes from the Worship Together Across the Diocese videos, they produced a weekly sheet which can be used by children at home by themselves or with parents and it can also be used by teachers either in school or via Zoom or similar. Every day children are given something to watch or look at with a pause for thought or a prayer activity.
