Dear parents

Thank you for all your hard work over the last few months.  This will be the last piece of home learning.  Have a lovely holiday.  We are looking forward to welcoming all the children back to school in September.

Stay safe

Year 4 teachers

 

For anyone wanting some extra ideas for keeping busy whilst you are at home, I have tried to put together a variety of different links to cover lots of subjects.  Many of them have individual activities to complete whilst some offer ongoing learning to work through at your own pace.  I hope that you find something here to interest and excite you. 

Don’t forget to let us know how you are getting on and share anything that you get up to.

From Mrs Price😊

 

Mixed Subjects

Topmarks has lots of interactive games for you to play.  You can search by subject or topic.  One of our favourites is ‘Hit the Button’ for maths but there are lots more interesting games to have a go at.

Languages

Many of you will have already started using Duolingo.  There are lots of different languages to have a go at.  Don’t stop at just the one – why not become a German or Spanish speaker?

The BBC languages site also allows you to choose the language you would like to learn.

Science

The experts from the Association for Science Educators have created these curriculum-led resources that have been specifically designed to help deliver a structured series of topic-based primary science lessons in a home environment. There are two topics for each year group but you can choose whatever interests you – there is an advantage to being at home learning!

Explorify at home is a weekly supply of activities for parents and carers to do with their learners at home. It's based on the primary science curriculum, but easy to do at home.

Kids Invent Stuff asks children to send in ideas for inventions.  They select some of the best ideas to make the invention.  Some of the inventions created so far have been the trampoline drum kit, a wearable oven, a tea train and (my favourite) the catapult alarm. Lots to watch and inspire some amazing inventing.
