Year 4 - Miss Shacklady & Mrs Kerins 2019 - 2020

Recipe of the week!

I thought I’d update your recipe board 4S! 
As you’ve all been making rainbows to show support for the NHS, I thought this recipe would be a great one to try this week, and now most of you are at home you’ll have time to get your aprons on!

What can you do to support your child's learning at home?


School closures have unfortunately happened, for any parents worrying, this list was put together by the home ed community.

FREE online education resources.

A non-exhaustive list that might help those affected by school closures due to coronavirus, compiled by home educators so you can support your child's learning at home 

Khan Academy
Especially good for maths and computing for all ages but other subjects at Secondary level. Note this uses the U.S. grade system but it's mostly common material.

BBC Learning
This site is old and no longer updated and yet there's so much still available, from language learning to BBC Bitesize for revision. No TV licence required except for content on BBC iPlayer.

Free to access 100s of courses, only pay to upgrade if you need a certificate in your name (own account from age 14+ but younger learners can use a parent account).

For those revising at GCSE or A level. Tons of free revision content. Paid access to higher level material.

Free taster courses aimed at those considering Open University but everyone can access it. Adult level, but some e.g. nature and environment courses could well be of interest to young people.

As part of Granby home/school agreement in your child's organiser, they are required to be supported in reading at least 3 times a week to an adult at home. As you can see by our class data, some children are reading above and beyond that level each week! Well done to all of those children who reach green or purple EVERY week! Your writing and reading levels are boosted because of this hard work so keep up the fantastic effort!

Year 4 are selling Bath bombs as part of their Enterprise project for their Potions Topic. A flyer will be handed out with each one to ensure you know all ingredients and how to use it.

Children are required to read 3 times to an adult each week - so far this is the data for 4S. Please ensure you're listening to, and reading with, your child 3 times a week. Reading improves their writing and comprehension skills dramatically!
