Home Learning in Year 4
During this year, we know that many Year 4 children may have to isolate for two weeks and spend time away from their class so we are continuing to provide online learning for those that need it, when they need it. We learned a lot about online learning in the summer term and about what works well for our parents and the children.
We will continue to use Google Classroom, but we are also posting lots of learning on our website to make it more accessible. The school will provide you with a Home Learning Book, so that your child can keep their work safe and be proud of what they achieve. We will encourage you to share photographs of this work with your teacher through Google Classroom. Some work will be best completed online.
Our aim is to make this as accessible to parents and families as possible.
While you are at home, you will also get regular calls from a member of your class team so that we can work together to support you child while they are at home.

Every child should read every day, whether at home or at school and it’s important to plan this in. Many children enjoy reading in their beds before they fall asleep or perhaps they get up early and enjoy reading then. While they are unable to attend school, it’s important that they continue to read every day and find time to do a bit extra. Perhaps straight after breakfast, or before they eat their lunch.
Use Google Classroom to find our what pages you should be reading at home.
Keep an eye on Google Classroom, as sometimes teachers might read some of the class book aloud on there.
Use the Spelling Shed for independent spelling practice on a device. If you need help logging in, please speak to a member of your class team.
Some children also have a Lexia Reading account. If you’re not sure if your child has a Lexia account, please ask a member of the class team.

To use on an iPad, download the free Lexia Core5 Reading UK app from the App Store
At Lansbury Lawrence, we use White Rose Maths to support our learning in class and at home. There are videos that you can watch to help you support your child here:
Because the school buys the worksheets, we cannot publish these on our website, but we have published them in your Google Classroom pages. If you need help accessing these, please speak to a member of your class team.
If you want to practise your timetable skills after your lesson, we’ve got accounts for all of Year 4 on Times Table Rockstars:
