I will be putting some specific home learning tasks on the website (and Google Classroom), so keep checking back. If you are using Google Classroom, you can even hand in your work virtually for me to mark!
I have added extra links to our 'Age of Empire' and 'Food Glorious Food' pages, to help you learn more about our topics, whilst you're at home.
Don't forget to keep accessing TTRockstars, Numbots, Mathletics and Purple Mash and let me know if you are continuing with your daily times tables mountain challenges, so I can move you up a level, when necessary.
I would love to see some of your Pobble work too. Either type it up or upload a photo and send it to me via Google Classroom.

Our maths lessons, in class, are based upon the scheme of work for Year 4 written by the White Rose Hub. They have made the lessons available online to assist home learning. Each lesson consists of a short video, covering the learning for the lesson, then there is an activity sheet to print off and complete - https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/.
Log on to the 'I See Maths' website daily from Monday 23rd March to watch a maths lesson suitable for Year 3 and 4 and to complete a fun maths task - http://www.iseemaths.com/home-lessons/.
For those of you without access to a printer, or who would prefer not to be continually needing to do online learning, I can recommend the Power Maths textbooks and workbooks, as another way of being able to take up where we left off in class. Textbook/Pupil practice book 4B covers the Spring Term and 4C covers the Summer Term. These books are published by Pearson and are available from most online book sellers. There is now also Power Maths 4 Home Learning Edition, which has been published to tie in with the White Rose / BBC Bitesize maths lessons for year 4 from Monday 4th May. This provides 12 weeks worth of work and can be used alongside the White Rose / BBC Bitesize daily lessons online.
The National Centre for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics (NCETM) have published their own online lessons for lower KS2 at https://www.ncetm.org.uk/resources/54454.
It is so important that children continue to read for at least 15 minutes a day throughout the period that school is closed. For many children, they will have books at home which they can be reading.
For those children on the reading scheme: if you register (for free) on the Oxford Owl website, you can access a range of tablet-friendly ebooks, which are searchable by age and book band - https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/
I know that some of you are big fans of David Walliams. Go to https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/ to hear him read a different audio story every day.
