Parents, we realise that many of you are experiencing an increased demand on your time and in response to some feedback we have tried to make the learning pack a little more intuitive and user friendly. Hopefully the links to all the documents should open in a new webpage. If not just drop us an email and we will endeavour to fix the problem. If you would prefer to download and print a paper version of this letter please click here: Letter to parents Summer 2 Week 4b . Although this should make the pack easier to use, we would emphasise that most of our Year 4 children will still need an adult’s help in accessing and understanding the tasks and learning involved.
At least the sun has been shining a little bit more this week even though the showers have been quite dramatic too. Fingers crossed that next week will be even better. It has been so nice to hear from all our families during the last couple of weeks. Great to know that the children are getting on with their work, helping out at home and developing new skills. Top tip children: if you haven’t done the above it’s never too late to start!
We know some of you will have already watched our Year 4 PHSE Challenge video. It turned out to be more of a technical challenge than we imagined. We know some of you have been very disappointed as your video wasn’t on the original or even second attempt. We sent out a second request earlier in the week to all the families for whom we have no video. When it’s ready we’ll let you know. We’re going to have a relaunch – TAKE TWO – and would encourage all of you to have another look. It’s a great chance to see even more of your friends.
Remember to keep getting in touch. Pictures of you and your families, out and about or doing work, always put a smile on our faces. We’d also like to see some of your completed projects so don’t worry about sending them in.
Don’t forget to keep as active as you can. At least one hour of daily activity is recommended for children. How many times can you throw a ball in the air and then catch it? How many claps can you do whilst the ball is in the air? Can you juggle two or more balls? Set up a competition with the other people in your household? Send us a photo.

Maths teaching and learning:
This week we will be revising place-value knowledge and addition. As we have already covered the lessons on the White Rose webpage, the path you need to follow to the lessons looks a little different. Follow the links below to the teaching videos and the worksheets.
This week we’re going to keep it simple and focus on our reading and comprehension activities. Did you know that World Water Day happens every year on the 22nd March and every year there is a different theme. Find out what’s been happening by reading the information in the comprehensions from 2018 and 2019 and the information sheets for 2020:
