Maths for week commencing 23rd March 2020
Hello Year 4. Over the next two weeks of this term, we would have been introducing you to decimals. These are linked to fractions as another way of showing parts of a whole. You will have already used decimals in Year 3 when dealing with money problems.
Please click here to find decimal activities for this week.
Obviously, you can continue to use the other activities and websites previously provided but it will be useful for you to introduce yourselves properly to decimals as this is a key part of the curriculum in Year 4.
Good luck. Please use Google Classroom for any comments.
4K Guided Reading Activities - Monday 23rd March 2020.
In the possible case of the school closing, we have provided each child with a home learning pack and a set of reading books. We kindly ask that if your child is at home during term time, they complete the work set and read the books provided.
We have also set up email accounts for each child (login details have been sent out) and Google Classroom pages (email logins are needed and use this code: 4gn4uiv to access the 4J classroom and code: 24rmqud to access the 4K classroom).
We will be contacting children daily via these accounts to make sure that they are happy, healthy and safe.
