Hi all, I hope everyone one of you are well.

I understand that there had been an issue with not being able to access a lot of the content on Education City. I was only made aware of this this morning as I am in school. Therefore, I have attached my email so that you can contact me with any queries that you have regarding your child’s home learning. weaver.d@shawburystmarys.co.uk

This week’s home learning plan is as follows;

Maths:

On Education City I have uploaded a number of tablet friendly activities. Throughout the first week your child should focus solely on division.

Use the method of short division that you have been practising. Do the calculations from the table below. You can choose your own level of challenge, start in a column that you feel comfortable with, and then try challenging yourself with calculations from the next column.

Mild Hot Spicy
95 ÷ 5 =

91 ÷ 7 =

84 ÷ 7 =

56 ÷ 4 =

72 ÷ 4 =

 

78 ÷ 6 =

68 ÷ 4 =

81 ÷ 3 =

48 ÷ 3 =

57 ÷ 3 =

 348 ÷ 4 =

252 ÷ 3 =

356 ÷ 4 =

192 ÷ 3 =

385 ÷ 5 =

 

816 ÷ 3 =

868 ÷ 4 =

285 ÷ 5 =

927 ÷ 3 =

252 ÷ 4 =

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

536 ÷ 8 =

756 ÷ 9 =

544 ÷ 8 =

504 ÷ 7 =

576 ÷ 9 =

 

804 ÷ 6 =

819 ÷ 7 =

959 ÷ 7 =

402 ÷ 6 =

581 ÷ 7 =

 

Also, your child should choose a times table focus for the week, either 6x, 7x, 8x, 9x tables and recall/rehearse these daily. Useful websites for times tables are:

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

https://www.timestables.com/speed-test/

Literacy:

To write a newspaper report about an interest. For example: A fairy tale – The 3 Little Pigs or Little Red Riding Hood, a lost pet, a football game – you could watch highlights of a game on YouTube). Children should focus on the features of a newspaper report; heading, quotes, 5 W’s, eye witness report, pictures and captions.

On Education City, there is a grammar folder. Your child is expected to complete two grammar activities throughout the week.

Spellings: 

This week’s spelling focus are words ending in the suffix ‘ness’.

Sadness, kindness, silliness, happiness, drowsiness, darkness, softness, hardness.

Reading:

Please read daily. This is a great opportunity for children to be reading aloud using expression and intonation.

Topic:

To carry out research then create an information booklet or powerpoint about Charles Darwin. Include; heading, sub-headings and pictures.

PE:

For a fantastic workout, check out Joe Wicks’ YouTube channel; The Body Coach TV. In school today the children really enjoyed #PEwithJOE. You can join in live at 9am or catch up on his YouTube channel.

Keep up the good work and look out for Wednesday’s post

It was lovely to meet most of you at parents evening this week.

Homework throughout the year

Hi all,

I’m just posting to make you all aware of the expectations of homework throughout the year in Class 4 🙂

In Class 4 we encourage children to read a minimum of three times a week.To motivate the children to read we have a raffle prize. A child will receive a raffle ticket once they have reached the minimum expectation of reading three times in one week. After that, children will then receive a raffle ticket for each time they read.

Every Friday homework will be sent home and should be returned the following Tuesday unless stated otherwise.

Each week your child will bring home their marked arithmetic assessment. Class 4 children are aware that they need to focus and practise the incorrect questions. Also, every two weeks a reading comprehension will be sent home.

Year 4 children are expected to be fluent in ALL of their times table from 1 to 12 so please, please, please practise them as often as possible!

If anyone has any queries then please ask me at parent evening. I look forward to meeting lots of you for the first time.

Many thanks

Mr Weaver
