Welcome to Year 4 Home Learning

**********UPDATED 3RD APRIL 3:30PM***********

Whilst school is closed to most children, we will be using this page to share activities and suggestions to help parents support their child's learning at home. 

We do not expect children to spend a lot of time working through the various activities; these are merely a suggestion and children can choose the tasks they complete and would ideally work in short bursts. We understand that this will be an extremely challenging time for everyone, many people will be juggling their time between work and caring for others, so the priority is to stay safe, healthy and active.

Please see this help sheet on keeping children safe online: Click here.

If your child does not have access to the a computer, please let us know ASAP. If we know, we will prepare print outs and you will be able to collect them from the school office on a Monday morning. If your child needs a new exercise book or even pencils, let us know and we can leave some in reception for you to collect.

Easter Activities

We will not be producing specific daily English or maths work during the two week Easter period but instead have created a grid of creative activities for you to share as a family. See the link below for the menu.

Easter Activity Menu

We also have the launch of our Copmanthorpe Primary School Art Challenge. See the link below for details.

Art Challenge - Easter

If you would like to continue some ‘core’ subject learning we advise you to use check out Corbett Maths 5 A Day and continue your daily reading enjoying any book you have at home or on the Oxford Owl online library and resources (see link below). Or try listening to audio book. Mrs Nicholson and her family are currently enjoying The Boy at the Back of the Class on Audible. They have a 30 day free trial at the moment.

Please check back here the week commencing April 20th for updates to our maths, English and new topic home learning, which will take into account the results from our recent parent survey.

Thank you all for your hard work and support and also for all the lovely emails we have received from parents and children.

Topic - Spring 2 - Stone Age to Iron Age

We have already glued a topic menu into your child’s home learning book, which they brought home with them on Friday. (If your child was absent last week, collect from the office). Children can select activities from there to complete over the final 2 weeks of this Spring term and the Easter holidays. We will send out another one for the start of Summer term. The topic menu mostly covers non-core subjects such as history, geography, art, PSHE, DT, etc. It also includes some science and fun seasonal activities. Please also see the links, at the bottom of the page, which may be helpful to support or supplement the topic activities.
