Our learning until further notice will take place on Microsoft Teams. Year 4 have live lessons at 10.00am and 1.00pm for English and Maths so please ensure your child joins in with these meetings. If you are able to stay online from 2.00-2.30pm, Class Novel sessions will also run straight after Maths. Check the calendar on Teams for additional sessions.
Activities for them to do between live sessions are detailed on the daily schedule, which is sent on each day on the Teams General Channel and on Marvellous Me. Sheets they will need to support their learning have been included in the packs which you pick up from school every other week.
For support on how to use Microsoft Teams, check out these handy 'how to' guides:
It's wonderful to see the children online and engaging with their online learning!
Please email your Year 4 teacher with any questions or work completed through:
Take care and stay safe,

The new projects run for the second half of the Spring term. Homework contributions can be made throughout the half term, please make sure your child brings in something that they have worked on at home.
Below are some ideas for each project, try one of these or something else project related.
How many amazing shark facts can you find? Build them into a PowerPoint presentation to show the rest of the class. Remember to include images and perhaps some video clips too.
Write a ‘True or False’ quiz with fascinating facts about creatures and plants under the sea. Create Top Trumps-style fact cards about creatures of the Great Barrier Reef. Create a picture dictionary of plants and creatures of the ocean.
Use the web with an adult to find out about famous undersea explorers, such as Robert Ballard, Sylvia Earle, William Beebe and James Cameron. Record your information to share with the class.
Design an ‘Under the Sea’ board game. What creatures might your counters represent?
Write a story about a diver’s exploration of a coral reef.
Learn The Beatles’ song, ‘Yellow Submarine’, and write a new verse of your own.
Write a poem about the creatures living in the blue abyss. It might be an acrostic, shape, haiku, cinquain or free verse poem.
Research how to scuba dive and write a set of instructions for a new diver.
Make a tourist leaflet for people visiting Australia’s Great Barrier Reef
Use a bible or the internet to find out about Palm Sunday. You could make a story map of the events, write a diary as if you witnessed the events or a newspaper style report about what happened.
At the end of the project homework period your child will receive either a bronze, silver or gold project homework badge.
Bronze = a basic piece of project homework was completed
Silver = a good piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of time to complete
Gold = an excellent piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of thought, time and effort to complete
