Welcome to Year 4 and our class page! Hopefully you will find our class page useful. On our class page we have details of our topics for this half term as well as other useful information about Year 4 and websites that we use to help our learning. We love to share what we learn in school every day via Twitter, so please follow us @BishopCEPrimary to see what we get up to. Here's to a great first half term!

Mrs McEvoy :)

Arrival and collection

Remember, we need to arrive into school between 8.45 and 9am each morning and our collection time is 3.10pm. 

What to bring to school

The children should bring in a water bottle which they will take home each day as well as their packed lunch (if they do not receive a school lunch). They can also bring in their own hand gel if they wish. They do not need any other equipment such as pencil cases, stationary etc as they will have everything they need at their own desk

PE days

Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday On these days, the children should come into school wearing their PE kit. They do not need to bring in their normal school uniform to get changed into, they will just stay in their PE kit all day. As the vast majority of our PE needs to take place outdoors, they should wear their normal PE t-shirt and a tracksuit/appropriate sports clothing that is suitable for all weather.

Homework

We will do Homework over a fortnightly period.

So, one week we will have a Maths and an English task to complete in our Homework books. These will go home on a Monday, to be returned the following Monday. 

For the alternate week, the children will be asked to work on some Topic-based tasks which will be in a grid format on a sheet for them to take home. These suggested tasks can be done at home in those alternate weeks when they don’t have their Homework books. We will then be able to give verbal feedback and share the work as a class.

Autumn 1 Topic Grid

Spellings

Spellings will go home every Monday and there will be a Spelling Test every Friday on these words. You can find these in the links  below and I will also put them on Dojo each week.

Year 4 Autumn 1 Spellings

Reading

The children will take their Accelerated Reader book home (with their Reading Record book) every day. These should then come back into school every day also.

May Half Term

Last week we had an amazing response to our Twitter challenge...The Great BIR Bake Off. Thank you so much for your photos - we have some very talented bakers! There were some incredible entries - from cakes and cookies to doughnuts and sausage rolls! We hope you had fun baking at home last week and that you enjoyed seeing the photos on Twitter as much as we did.

This week, as it is half term, we are taking a break from our usual Home Learning. Instead, we would love you to have a go at our '7 days of kindness' challenge. See below for a grid of 'kindness' activities we have put together for you to try at home during half term this week. We have also included below some ideas for the mindfulness activity which is suggested on Wednesday.

As always, we would love to see the children's efforts at completing the activities throughout the week, so please tweet @BishopCEPrimary with any photos. By including our twitter handle @BishopCEPrimary in your tweet, we will be able to retweet your photos onto our Twitter page. We hope to see your efforts!

We have also included below a link to a new story called 'While We Can't Hug' by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar. We are all finding it difficult to be away from loved ones at the moment, so hopefully this will be a nice story for you to all share at home this week.

Our regular Home Learning will recommence from Monday 1st June.

Thank you for your continued support. Stay safe, take care of one another and have a lovely half term.

Archived Work - Summer 2 Week 5

Weekly Twitter Challenge!

One of the highlights of our school year is our Sports Day. Unfortunately, this year, we are of course unable to run our usual Sports Day. However, we had some exciting news recently when County Durham School Games announced that they are running a Virtual School Games this week! The Virtual Games consist of five challenges which are all easy to practise and complete at home, with very little equipment needed. The idea is to practise these challenges at home this week. Then, on Friday 3rd July, have a go and then enter your best score using the Virtual Games website. Can you beat you own personal best by Friday? You can also earn points for our school by taking part in each challenge. Maybe BIR can get the gold!

More information, including details of all of the challenges and how to submit results and photographs, can be found on the Virtual School Games website: https://durhamcls-ssp.co.uk/vsg20/

We would also love to see you practising and taking part in these challenges this week, so please tweet @BishopCEPrimary with your photographs, using the hashtag #CDVSG20. If including children's names in tweets, we ask that you use initials rather than full names for online safety. We would love to see you get involved with this! Good luck and most importantly...have fun!

 

Week beginning Monday 29th June
