School Closure Work, Important Information (Updated June 2020)
Hi everyone and welcome to Year 4's school closure page,
I hope you are all still keeping safe and well at home?
Just to let you know work and tasks will be added here on a weekly basis on a Sunday evening. There will be an overview for the week of tasks and activities. There will also be a list of resources to use each day underneath.
If you need to send work or need help with anything you can still use the email:- firstname.lastname@example.org
Please do not worry if you cannot complete all tasks everyday, just do what you can. Try to enjoy yourselves as well :)
In the meantime please stay safe and look after yourselves and each other. I look forward to seeing you all again when we are clear to come back to school. I have written you a poem below to cheer you all up!
Miss you lots, Mrs H x

Easter Activities To Try From The Diocese
The Children's Changing Places group, which is linked to the Diocese, has asked every school to share this resource with their families. There are some nice Easter activities included. However, a number of the suggestions require specific resources that families might not have access to, so please do not feel any pressure to use it or to complete all the activities! It might just give you some nice ideas of things to do as a family during what would have been the official Easter break
Choir- Miss Roe and Mrs Thornley have sent a song list (links to you tube videos of songs) for choir children to look at and practise singing along to.
Mental Health and Wellbeing
During this very difficult time it is important we look after not only our own wellbeing, but our children's. Here are some things to try out at home:-
- The Mindfulness Teacher (a teacher I went to university with) is beginning mindfulness sessions via her you tube page tomorrow 04.05.20. She is posting the link on her facebook page if you add 'The Mindfulness Teacher'.
- Mrs Kemp has also provided some resources for those children who may have an additional need and are finding these times particularly difficult. There is also a document on how to talk to children who are feeling anxious or scared.

I hope you have had a fabulous half term! I am still missing you all lots, please send me some lovely pictures of what you have been up to! Well done to Isabelle, Noah, Caleb, Leon and Mollie for taking part in the Sumdog work I set in the first week of the holidays, awesome effort guys!!
From this week I will be posting your activities weekly and not daily. I have attached an overview, timetable and all the resources below. Please email me with any queries and have a lovely week. Mrs H xxx
UPDATE WITH REGARDS TO SENDING WORK VIA EMAIL- You may send work via email but it would be preferable if you sent it all in one email, not separate emails for each piece of work that is completed. You do not need to send all the work from the week, you may send the work your child is most proud of or work you would like me to check, if you are unsure about any part of it. You may keep all the work you do not send in a folder or book at home. You may also feel you would like to email about the week at the end of each week, this is entirely up to you. Please do what you feel is most convenient. Please also feel free to email any queries when they arise. I hope this provides a little more clarity. Mrs H xx
