Changes to Year 4 Home Learning

 

As you may be aware, currently class teachers are teaching different year groups in school at the moment. This has meant that there are some changes to how your home learning is being done. 

I(Mrs King year 6 teacher) have taken over the learning for your year group so it will look a little different to what you have been doing but I have made sure it at the right level and hopefully fun!

 

If you have any questions regarding the work, would like to send me your amazing work to look at or even post on the Website, then please send them to v.king@portsdown.portsmouth.sch.uk.

All children were sent home with a log in card but if they can't find it please contact your class teacher by email to receive their code again.

Message for school closure

Below this message is the weekly home learning pack for Year 4. If you are unable to print the resources, please let your teacher know by the end of the Monday in each week so a pack can be printed ready for collection on the Tuesday. Try to do what you can with regards to the learning but don't feel under pressure to complete it all. We have created a Year 4 writing skills sheet to help remind you of the skills and also a Year 4 calculation methods sheet to help with the maths.

 

If you need to get in contact with your child’s teacher regarding the home learning, whether that be to ask a question or for clarity, please contact us via our work emails: 

 

4JP - j.pridgeon@portsdown.portsmouth.sch.uk
