Welcome to Year 4!
Well done for another successful week of home learning! We have been very impressed with your online Maths and Spelling scores, so keep up the super work. We hope you are all as excited as we are about the news of which class you are going to next year. All of the school adults will be talking to each other lots over the coming weeks, and we will make sure to let them know what amazing learners you are! There are only two weeks left of term, so every little bit of work you can keep doing at home will just make everything easier when you return in September.
If you have any queries that need immediate attention, please email the school office and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
Our class email addresses are as follows:

Below are the quick links, where you will find the online activities for this week's home learning.

Physical Education at Home
Below are some helpful internet links to help guide and educate your children with physical education activities at home.
PE has proven to be as important as ever within children with huge physical and mental health benefits.
A high percentage of children around the country have been taking part in the Joe Wicks fitness workouts during the lockdown period, which has been an excellent learning tool to staying active!
The links below have more of a focus on developing the children’s physical literacy and fundamental skills. This covers the children’s ABC’s. Agility, Balance and Co-ordination.
Physical literacy is a gateway for your children to learn and develop a wide range of movement skills like running, jumping, throwing and catching. These skills aim to develop the confidence and motivation to engage in and enjoy physical activity.
Fundamental movement skills are the building blocks required to form more generalised, specific sports skills. They are the physical equivalent of spelling in English, or multiplication in Maths.
In very simple terms, different combinations of these skills (running, jumping, kicking, striking etc…) can be combined to form more sports specific skills.
The links below can be done independently by the child or with a sibling/parent in the garden or somewhere safe in the house. You can use a variety of equipment from footballs, tennis balls, bats, and rackets or bunched up socks? Use your imagination to change and adapt these activities to what equipment you have at home.
**Please send the school any videos of your children taking part in different PE activities at home**

You can add, change and adapt any of these activities to your child’s needs. Just use your imagination!
