Welcome to Year 4!
Update: Week Beginning 13th
There is no Oak Academy work towards the end of the week but Maths is on there for Monday and Tuesday. On all other days there will be work uploaded to Padlet so please check those every day.
Maths can be found on the Oak Academy Year 4 schedule and can be accessed by clicking this link. Each week the children will have a different topics each week with learning that builds on what they have learned in school. This week: Developing strategies to plan and solve problems.
We are now using padlet to post videos and set work for your children. Padlet is extremely safe and very easy to use. The children will just need to follow the web link to the homepage where they can access all other subject page links to. Padlet allows us to see the children responses to work and reply effectively. This should hopefully keep your child engaged with fun tasks and see familiar faces. Found below:
English and Reading work will be set once a week on your child's classes Padlet. The English and Reading page can be accessed from the Padlet homepage above.
Geography & History
Geography and History work will be set once a week on your child's classes Padlet. The Geography and History page can be accessed from the Padlet homepage above.
RE & PSHE
RE and PSHE work will be set once a week on your child's classes Padlet. The RE and PSHE page can be accessed from the Padlet homepage above.
Children should still be completing one Read Theory quiz per day. Their scores are being monitoring by their teachers in order for us to ensure that their reading comprehension is continually developed.
Online safety activities will continue to be set on purplemash. Children must complete these by the end of the set week as they ensure that children can recall how to use the internet safely and recognise correct and incorrect usage.

Read Theory Q&A
Thank you for assisting the school in providing home learning for our children; we appreciate the work you are doing at home to ensure children are continuing to make progress during these uncertain times.
Read Theory is the programme we have set up to give children the access to reading daily in place of Accelerated Reader. There have, however, been some ‘teething problems’ in its infancy. As it is based on an American system, there has been some confusion about the grading as it does not match up perfectly to the English system.
As a result, some children have been scoring incredibly well on their baseline quiz thus their starting point being a bit higher than their ability. If this happens, it may take 3-5 quizzes for the system to recognise each child’s ability before children will access quizzes at the correct level.
If your child is accessing quizzes that seem too difficult, please allow them to complete it to the best of their ability as if they do get some answers incorrect, the system recognises the level of challenge is too much and will adjust automatically. Similarly, please encourage children to use the strategies that we use in our reading lessons to work out unfamiliar words.
If you have any other questions, please contact your class teacher or myself at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your continued support.
