Home Learning

Afternoon all, hope everyone is well.  Next week sees the 75th anniversary of VE Day, and you can find activities to help commemorate this at https://www.mrtdoeshistory.com/ve-day-key-stage-2

At the bottom of the Home Learning page, there is a Files to Downlaod tab - in this you will find a whole unit of work that will support you rchild's English skills.

This week's spellings are as follows: solve, solution, insoluble, dissolve, solvent, sign, signature, assign, design and signal.  

The BBC bitesize daily lessons (https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/z63tt39/year-4-and-p5-lessons/1) are now linked to the White Rose maths lessons I have previously posted.  You can watch the videos and then print out work sheets if you are able to.  https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/ is where you can find the activities.  


Our focus in our Vikings topic this week is to look at family life, the roles within the family unit.

Stay safe everyone - rest assured that we are all looking forward to working with your children again.  


Hello again everyone - once again, I hope you are all keeping well.  There have been a few questions about 'how much should I do with my child at home' education wise - my thoughts are that you should just keep things ticking over.  Try and complete the activities I put on the website, try and read every day with your child, try and practise your times table skills. But please be assured that we will do our very best to catch up with the learning the children have missed out on - I promise you this! 


Anyway, our spellings this week are as follows:  phone, telephone, phonics, microphone, homophone, real, reality, realstic, unreal, realisation.

A task has been set on Mathletics for you.

Week beginning Monday 30th March.   Good morning everyone.  I hope everyone is well and looking after each other.  Believe it or not, I actually miss your little munchkins!  Here are somne links for activities to do this week.  The tts booklet will keep you going for a couple of weeks - there is a range of activities including comprehension, spelling, number and place value, science and even PE.  Apologies for not being as handsome as Joe Wicks but hey ho!!  I have also set an activity on Mathletics. Keep using sites like topmarks and https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check to support maths skills.  

Our research topic is to look at Viking houses.  You could become a Viking Estate Agent and create a poster telling me all about the design and location of a tgypical Viking house. There is lots of information in the following weblinks:

This is a really good series of lessons to keep your child up to date with Maths.  Each lesson is accompanied by a tutorial video.  


School Closure: Until we are able to return to school we will provide 'homework' to be done each week. This will usually involve accessing some online materials which can be accessed using the information below. Check each day to see if your teacher has given you new tasks.

These last few weeks have been really difficult for us all in many different ways.  I am, though, so proud to say I work at Chapel End - our school community is simply amazing.  

I have set a task on Mathletics - don't foregt to use live Mathletics as well!

topmarks.co.uk is a brilliant website for lots of resources - Hit the Button is one the children particularly like. 

Remember to access https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check it will help your child's times table knowledge.  Challenge you to beat your child! 

Our research project this week is to look at how and why Vikings settled where they did.
