Year 4 Home Learning for a whole class/year group bubble closure

If you need any help or support you can reach the Year 4 team on the email address below. We will check it daily. 


If the Year 4 bubble closes, work will be posted here.


During the closure of a bubble, staff will prepare work for the children to complete at home tailored to the learning they would have been doing in class. On the first day of closure, please work from the Home Learning grid set up for this term for pupils individually self-isolating.  Staff will be preparing the tailored learning for the website to start from Day 2 of the bubble closure.

You can expect a daily maths, English and phonics task.  Some tasks will be pre-loaded for the week but you can expect daily tasks to be uploaded by 8:30am on the day they are needed (unless there are technical difficulties!).

There will also be a range of tasks from other subject areas.  Children can choose what order they do these other tasks in.  We recommend doing two of these additional tasks each day.

You can expect a phone call from a member of staff during each week that the bubble is closed.  If the member of staff is calling from their own phone it will be a withheld number.

Staff will check and respond the year group email and you can expect a member of staff to be available to respond directly between 1 and 2pm, Monday-Thursday.

Please email a photo of a piece of work your child has done each day to the year group email: year4@dovecote.school

We have really enjoyed seeing your completed work so far this week. Please do keep sending it in. Here are a few examples of what you have been up to over the past few days:
