 Welcome to Year 4

We want to take this opportunity to express how much we are missing our children and parent/carers.

Please take care and keep safe, we hope to see you all really soon. 

 

Year 4 staff: Mrs Williams, Mrs Price, Mrs Colclough, Mrs Smith and Mrs Kirkham. 

  

During Summer Term 1, we will be adding weekly Home Learning PowerPoints onto our website, for you to try.

 

The PowerPoints are based on Maths and English but there will be other activities posted to allow you to work on other areas of the curriculum. You also have your summer term overview, which provides a range of activities for our summer topic of Ancient Greece.

To allow everyone to access the PowerPoints, we have created separate work for our EHCP and SEN children, which you are able to access in the same place, if the children are struggling with the generic PowerPoints.

 

If you are proud of your work, please share it with us, we would love to see what you are achieving at home! 

Take a photograph of you completing the activity and send it to keystage2@stgca.org.uk 

Remember, add your name and class to the email, so that it gets to the right teacher.

Explore at Home Competition 2020

We want you to help tackle the problem and use Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) to propose solutions to this challenge. You might start by finding out about a particular species that you can find in your garden or local area. You could research its habitat, if it may be endangered as a species perhaps because of changes to habitat, new predators or competitors. You could use this information to propose ways to help save this species by creating a habitat for it. You could create an entire habitat or devise other ways to help sustain this species. You can choose any species for example hedgehogs, newts, bats, birds, bugs etc.
