Mrs Bothma and Mrs Pridmore are now in school every day working with the children of Key Workers. Mrs Bothma will continue to make fortnightly phone calls home and emails with home learning will be responded to by Mrs Bothma or Mrs Pridmore during school hours.
The children all have logins for the websites below which they have written in their Learning Logs.

Focus Text genres- Newspaper reports, narrative and explanation
In Geography we will be creating our own maps using accurate symbols. In Science our learning will be States of Matter before half term and Rocks after half term. In Art we will be finding out more about Pop Art and taking influence from Andy Warhol. In PE we will be learning tag rugby skills and will start to apply these skills in a game as well as gymnastics.
Times Table Rockstars
By the end of Year 4 the children are expected to know the times tables up to 12x12 automatically, without having to count up in the multiples. The government have introduced a times tables check to monitor this at the end of Year 4 which will be starting at the end of this school year. Times Table Rockstars is a fantastic way for children to practise their multiplication facts at speed which we will be using in school several times a week. Further practice at home will help to support this – please see the previous letter for more information.
