Home learning for Year 4 - Magpies
Below is Work for weeks one & two (Week Beginning 23rd & 30th March)
We would like the children to complete the activities set out as this would have been taught over the next couple of weeks. Some helpful resources, including Powerpoints for English, can be found on the Year 4 part of the school website.
Our usual expectations are:· Trying our best at each activity and challenging ourselves· Neatest handwriting· Great presentation skills· Wonderful colouring· Where possible, writing should be in a black handwriting pen or pencil. Editing and improving should be in blue.· Continue to use a dictionary (and other strategies) to help with their spellings and improve vocabulary.
In addition, please ensure your child completes a times tables test every day and reads every day to an adult.

We have included a copy of this home learning sheet in case your child has mislaid the original. Ideally, this work will be completed in the usual home learning book. However, if your child can’t find his/hers, please complete in the back of this book.
Please can you support and help your children by providing a place for them to work, along with making sure that they are eating and drinking regularly as part of their daily routines. Where possible and safe to do so, we would also encourage getting some form of exercise, preferably outside in the fresh air.
With our very best wishes
Mrs Masham, Mrs Rawlins and Mrs Willets

There are other sheets specific for the times tables that the child is currently working on. Again, the children know which tables these are. When they are able to get them all right in 5 minutes, the can move onto the next table.
We have been building up to writing a newspaper report. Can the children please use what they have learnt so far to write a report about what happened when Virgo and Elliot went into the river Avon?
Here is a link to other files your teachers wanted to share with you. To make it easier for me they are in the same folder as the times tables.
