Friday 27th March
It was wonderful to be able to speak to so many of you yesterday and to hear how you are getting on. I have seen lots of lovely work on the homework email already. Keep it coming! It has also been great to see how busy many of you have been on Times Tables Rockstars. Please do encourage your child to log in to this regularly so that they can strengthen their times tables knowledge during their time away from school.
If you missed my call yesterday and would like a phone call, please contact the school email address on: email@example.com or forward any school work related queries to our new email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also let us know if there is an alternative phone number that you would prefer us to use to reach you. I will be phoning families again next week before the start of the Easter break and look forward to speaking with you then.
I hope you and your families are able to enjoy some sunny walks in the coming days.
24th March Year 4 Learning Update!
Activities on fractions have now been set in MyMaths for your child to explore. Please encourage your child to use the feedback option when completing this work so that we can review how they have got on with each task. In addition, we have set up a new email address as follows: Homework@caldecott.oxon.sch.uk. Please use this address to send photographs or attachments of any work that your child would like us to see. Whilst it is not possible for us to formally mark work during this difficult period, we would be delighted to see what the children have been doing and to share in their successes and discoveries. It may also be possible to provide a small level of feedback should you have a specific query that cannot wait for your weekly phone call review.
We will continue to operate a small team within school in order to address all other queries. Should you need support with anything other than homework, please continue to use our school office email address: email@example.com. Also, if your child is entitled to free school meals, we are still able to provide a hot lunch or a brunch bag regardless of whether or not they are in school. If you require a meal for your child, please let the school office know. Meals are ready to collect from the school office at 12.00pm each day. If your child is entitled to a meal but you are concerned about social distancing, we have put measures in place so that you can receive your child's meal safely.
In other news, David Walliams is releasing a new audio story at 11.00 am each day, read by him. Do tune in and enjoy! The link to the first story is below.
Please continue to check the class page regularly - we will continue to update it over the course of the coming weeks.
The Year 4 Team
*Kestrels class learning from home update*
I will miss seeing the children over the coming weeks and hope they are able to continue successfully with their learning at home. Listed below are some useful website links and documents to help your child with their learning while they are off school. The children will also have a learning pack to take home (or this will be delivered to you if they are absent). The pack includes a timetable to help them structure the day and links to websites too.
I will be phoning once a week to check how your child is doing and to answer any queries that you might have. The number will either show up as the school's number or it will be unknown.
Please do let me know if there is anything the school can do to help you.
I wish everyone well at this challenging time.
YEAR 4 ONLINE HOME LEARNING RESOURCES
Please see below for a list of online resources that can help you to support your child further at home. A sample timetable has been included as well as a separate document with a list of lesson ideas that you can explore with your child.
Details about the curriculum we follow can be found on the following website page...
Youlbury Day 2!
Another action packed day today. First, we went into the woods and my group went to the zip line. It was quite scary but you got used to it. Some people had a few trips down the wire and I thought it was quite exhilarating. After that, we walked back into the woods and played some games. My favourite was hide and seek because there was lots of space to explore. Then we went for a tasty lunch and the cooks were great. In the afternoon, we did some archery. You had to be steady and focused. It was great today!!!
