Welcome to the Year 4 Class Page! 2020-21
Hello and welcome to a new half term (Summer 1). Our new themed approach for the Summer Term is ‘Road to Gold’. We will be thinking about the Olympics, with some research on Japan and other countries, completing our Egyptian topic and in Science we will be looking at sounds, teeth and digestion and living things and habitats . In RE we will be looking at churches and prayer.
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.
I hope you have had a restful and rewarding Easter break. Just a reminder that swimming starts this week on Thursday, and we will be leaving at 8.45 prompt- so I will be out on playground early to register. Children need a swimming cap and swimming shorts/costume ( no 2 piece costumes please) – goggles are optional.
Our other PE session will be on Wednesdays until the summer holidays so please ensure trainers worn then. Music will also continue on Wednesdays.
Any 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.

LOCKDOWN HOME READING CHALLENGE
Please see the attached ‘Rainbow Reading Challenge’ below. Children can read books with different coloured front covers/themes and once they have completed the challenge, they can be awarded a certificate. Please try to read everyday, write this in your reading diary and upload the picture to Seesaw on Friday. You can do this using Oxford Owl Library or read any books you have at home!

Extra tasks are always available under Purple Mash- set under ‘2dos’.
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.
PE- keep yourself active!
