As we are now in the throes of School Closures we want to assure you that Year 4 staff will continue to be available (through email) for you during normal school working hours, to assist with any home learning issues you may have. Please remember that you can contact any of us using the Teacher Contact Facility shown on the year 4 screen just below.
In the first two weeks we sent home learning packs to get you and your child started, but it is not feasible to continue this and therefore we will uploading activities that your children can complete alongside the tasks on the emails we send. In addition to this we will upload a weekly topic web with additional ideas that your child may choose to do. These activities are optional but anything your child is able to do will be beneficial. We appreciate that children will be taking part in additional activities at home too which are not directly related to the curriculum but will have educational value. Every home set-up will be different with some of you working from home which will make home learning a challenge.
As an addition to these activities please make use of all our online learning platforms (Sumdog, TT Rockstars, Numbots, Spelling Shed and Abacus maths). If you have misplaced your child’s login for any of these sites or have difficulty accessing them, again please contact us using the Teacher Contact Facility.
This is new territory for all of us, but we shall try to support you and your child as much as we can so the disruption to their education is minimised. We cannot stress the importance of staying in touch with each other (friends) through any means possible, as this is so important to your children’s well being.
We look forward to seeing your child again in year 4, once this worrying time is over.

An anonymously submitted story:
Due to the new National Curriculum's increased focus on grammar, we have introduced daily 'Active English' lessons to the class timetable. These lessons are proving very successful at boosting the children's understanding of sentence structure and word choices in order to accelerate their progression in Literacy. Active English lessons last roughly 20 minutes and give the children chance to critique text written by their teacher and respond with their own suggestions. This term we will recap the children's prior knowledge of grammar, particularly word types, and explore more detailed sentence structure.
