2. The following website / app has lots of free books to read (caution - as it is american, some books may be easier than the age it suggests). They are currently offering a free month's trial. www.getepic.com

3. On spotify, there are a range of audiobooks available - I am aware that the Lego audiobooks are particularly enjoyable.

Writing:

1. Spellings practice - please practise spellings regularly (daily - where possible). I will be updating the spellings via this page. There are many different ways to practise spellings. Please see the following website. When children are practising it is important that they are spelling the word accurately otherwise the word can be learnt incorrectly.

2. Pobble365 is a fantastic way to support your child in developing speaking and listening skills. The Pobble365 website is updated daily with a new picture. This picture then has a range of learning that can be linked to it. Today's picture (Wednesday 18th March 2020) is titled Crash! it is accompanied by 'Question time!', 'Perfect picture!', 'Story starter!', 'Sentence challenge!' and 'Sick sentences!'

Maths:

1. Please ensure times tables are being practiced daily (children know which table they should be working on). Children can/should use a combination of written tests and online tests. See below for Twinkl Go Codes for multiplication tests, 99 club tests and a website to generate multiplication tests.

2. Practicing skills that we have already learnt (especially the 4 operations).

Health and Wellbeing:

1. Joe Wicks has lots of fantastic workouts available on YouTube for free. He has some that have been specifically made for children and give a 5-10 minute HIIT workout. This is not only great for burning off energy but also for keeping fit and healthy.

2. Cosmic Yoga. There are a lot of Cosmic Yoga videos available on YouTube. These videos are fantastic and follow a story. These help with concentration, balance and coordination.

3. Mindfulness. During these uncertain times it's important to be aware of mindfulness and the benefits it has. Listening to calming music, dot-to-dots and detailed colouring are great ways to focus the mind.

Non-Screen Activities:

Below is a link to some fantastic non-screen activities.

____________________________________________________________________________________

Welcome to the class page for Astrid.

 

Below you will find some useful information.

 

Reading

In year 4 we expect the children to read at least 5 times a week. Reading records will be checked each Friday.

 

PE kits

PE kits should be in school everyday. Please ensure your child's PE kit is named/labelled.

 

Spellings

Each week (usually a Monday) new spellings will be given to the children. We will practice these in school throughout the week but it will help the children if they also practice at home. On a Monday the children will be tested on their spellings, the score can be found in the box in the bottom right corner of that week's spellings practice.

 

Pencil cases

In year 4, children do not need to bring pencil cases into school but can if they wish. They can use them during wet break/lunch and golden time.

 

Please support your child by ensuring that they are not bringing items into school such as toys etc. These can be a distraction and can cause upset if lost or damaged.

 

Many thanks,

 

Miss McAvoy

Multiplication Practice

 

At the end of Year 4, all children will be assessed on their multiplication facts (up to 12 x 12).

 

While we will be practicing and learning these in school below is a way to access a similar type of assessment to practice both in school and at home.

 

The multiplications have been grouped in the order that they are learnt by the children.

 

To access these the children will need to:

Google 'Twinkl Go Login'. The top search result should be https://www.twinkl.co.uk/go/sign-in . This link takes you to a page that will give you access to the assessments.

 

To access the assessments you will need to enter a 6-digit code (this is made of two letters, followed by 4 numbers). This code will only let you access the specific multiplication facts you have chosen (e.g. the 3 times table).

 

When your child wants to practice a different set of facts, they will need to scroll down to 'Back to Twinkl Go' and click the link. On the next page click the outline of a person (top right corner) and click 'Log Out'. They will then be able to follow the above steps using a different code to access a different assessment.

 

The codes can be found below:
