Y4- Frog Class

Hello everyone!


Happy New Year to one and all. Well, what a strange time it is at the moment! It was lovely being back and seeing a lot of you the first few days back, however what a shame it is, as we head into another lockdown. 


As you may know, all our Home Learning will take place on Google Drive. You can log into the Frog's Drive by typing 'Google Drive: Sign-in' and clicking on the first link. The email and password are on the letter sent out on Tuesday, however, if you need them, feel free to email me. Within the Drive, you will find all your learning for the week alongside videos to support some of the learning. SPAG, English and Maths are broken down into daily lessons, while you have a choice of afternoon (curriculum) lessons. 


Zoom Meetings will be held on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays at 10am. Look out for the login details on the Google Drive. 


As always, we are here if you need anything. If you have any questions, feel free to email me, I will be available between 9:00am to 3:15pm daily to answer any questions and concerns. 


We all miss you, please stay safe and look after yourselves and others in your family. We look forward to seeing you all again, once this is all over.

Best wishes,


Mr Risby

Term Three and Four: Who were the Anglo-Saxons and how did they shape Britain? 


English- our purpose for writing this term is to entertain! We have a cracking book based on one of the most famous stories ever told- Beowulf. Fearsome monsters. Fierce warriors. This book promises to capture everyone's imagination!

Maths- this term's focus continues to be on times tables and multiplication and division. 

Science- our topic this term is States of Matter. Within this topic; we will be describing solids, liquids and gases; group or sort materials into solids, liquids and gases; observe changes that happen in materials when heated or cooled; and understand the terms: evaporation and condensation. 

Topic- for Term 3 and 4, we will be studying the Anglo-Saxons and the impact that they had on Britain. 


PE- this term our PE is on a Friday afternoon and it will be alternating it with Forest School. Our sport this term is Gymnastics. We would like to remind parents to send their children in PE or Forest School kit, depending on the week.
