11th January 2021
Dear Parents, Carers and Children,
Here is the remote learning lessons for week commencing 11th January.
We have written a few pointers to help you understand the format. If you have any questions etc, please email them to us or discuss them when we contact you.
We will enclose a LSCWC sheet for your child to complete their daily spelling practice and a handwriting sheet to enable you to develop their handwriting. You can use the handwriting sheet to support your child’s spelling of trickier words or words that contain letters which your child is struggling to join.
The timetable will tell you which lessons are pre-recorded – and can be found on the website under: Children’s Area àVideo Resources àYear 4. These are lessons in a yellow box.
The lessons in blue are planned live lessons and you will be advised how to login to these. Next week we plan to keep these to just story time to allow you to gain confidence and get used to this type of lesson. We will be able to log your child out of these sessions if behaviour choices are not appropriate and we will send an email to you advising of this.
The sessions that are asterisked on the weekly timetable are those which we are going to be looking at to give feedback on and/or speak to you about in the telephone conversation. You may email your work to us (via the year four email address). You may also wish us to look at other work you and your child are proud of.
There are separate Maths lessons for Miss Acres and Mrs Harris’s classes. The sessions for both Maths classes include work sheets ranging from easier to challenge. When you are talking through the learning with your child, you can make a decision which sheet would meet their needs. There are answers provided so you and your child can talk through errors and misconceptions.
The writing focus for the next few weeks is to create a travel brochure about different places to visit in France. This week your child will be writing an introduction and persuading the reader to visit Paris. Please ask your child to edit their work as they do in class. Your child can write as much as s/he would like to.
Reading is divided into comprehension and reading for a sustained period of time with an adult and/or independently. There are tasks to complete on the weekly timetable. In future weeks, there may be a separate weekly timetable for these sessions.
The afternoon sessions are varied and include practical tasks as well as paper activities. You may wish to send us photos of your child doing these activities or the work they have done.
Maths, English and Reading are a sequence of lessons and so need to be completed in day order.
Instructions for most lessons are on the flipcharts/slides. There is a summary of instructions for afternoon sessions.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of you the hard work you are doing with your child and fully appreciate that this is not an easy time.
The Year 4 Team
