Home learning documents for Year 4 BH/NB

Hi everyone,

This page will help you to keep up to date with our learning, especially if you are learning from home.

We have attached the newsletter to help you remember your key spellings.Don't forget you have a MyMaths lesson set for each week and you have your spellings to learn on Spelling Shed. We have also added on the 100 most common words [High frequency] for you to make sure that you can spell.

We have also attached some multiplication grids that you can use. Keep learning your times tables up to 12 x 12 as this will support you in your maths learning. Remember you have the Dovecote discs that were given out last half term. This contains the multiplication songs that can help you learn them.

The most important things are that you stay safe, wash your hands and try to find ways to enjoy this unusual time. Talk to people in your house, ask questions, do things, make things and keep yourself busy. 

Take care, Miss Birch and Mr Harding. 

Weekly Homeworking sheets

Miss Birch's first week of working from home!

During this week I have been outside in the garden every day! I wrote myself a list (as I do on our board in class every day) and I have been doing lots of bits and bobs.

As our theme for this term is reduce, reuse and recycle, I thought it would be good to take a look around and think about what I could up cycle. So, I have been painting fences, potting plants, re-potting some seedlings, fixing bird houses and painting and up cycling a lot of old and tatty bits in the garden. I have even paited some toad stools I got from my gran. I have also been spending a lot of time laughing at my dog and cat as they follow me around all day being hilarious :).

Take a look at some images!

We would love to see/read what you have been doing this week and every week if possible so feel free to e-mail us in Year 4 at year4@dovecote.school and tell us what you have been up to. The learning side is great but what fun, different or interesting things have you got up to in your garden or house that we will see? Also, if there is anything you would like putting on this page then let us know and we can do it.

Thanks again. Miss Birch.
