Year 4 Giraffes

Welcome Letter 2020_21

Welcome Letter 2020_21 1

Welcome to Year 4!


We are Giraffe Class and we are a class of Year 4 children. Our Teacher is Mr Watson and our LSA is Mr Thackuri (Mr T).


With school being closed and the children unable to attend, work will be set on the class pages for children to complete at home. The work is set is so that the children can continue their learning, even while the school is closed. As a school we want to make sure all children have access to learning. I will be updating the class page weekly with work to be completed at home. 


Any work set on the class page is not expected to be printed out. Please use your Home Learning books to complete the tasks set and answer any questions you have been given. We will then take these in once the children return to school.


Best wishes and stay safe,


Mr Watson



Home Learning


For your home learning, I would like you to complete three online lessons each week day.


You will find new lessons uploaded each day on the Oak National Academy website and the BBC Bitesize website. The lessons include Maths and English, as well as regular lessons in Science, History, Geography and more. Please click on the links below to view each of the websites. You do not need to complete the lessons on both websites, just choose the website you are most comfortable with.


Oak National Academy


BBC Bitesize


Below you'll find a new suggested time table which you may want to follow to support you with your home learning daily routine. 


Please make sure you're practising your handwriting and spelling when you get the opportunity and you're reading every day. Try to read to an adult at least three times a week. Click on the 'oxford owl' link or 'free kids books' link to access ebooks online . 


Click on the other links provided and explore the sites, read the information and play the games to further your learning at home. 


Make sure you continue to log on to TT Rock Stars to practice your times tables and improve your rock status.




A HUGE well done to those of you who are still completing the online lessons on BBC Bitesize or Oak National Academy. It's been amazing to hear that a number of you are still going on one of the web sites and working so well online. Please make sure that you're reading regularly at home. 




I'm really pleased to see so many of you continuing to use TT Rock Stars and improving your times tables. Keep it up!




You'll all receive your certificates when we return to school.
