Year 4 Remote Learning
Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope that you are all well, have had a good Christmas break and we wish you a Happy New Year. We are saddened that we will not be physically welcoming the children back to school however we are enthusiastic to start our remote teaching and learning.
You should have received a letter detailing a plan about remote learning and outlining what is expected of you and your child/ren while we teach remotely. We will try our absolute utmost to teach via Google Meets and stick to the timetable. As is outlined in the remote learning plan we will have live lessons between 10am-11am, 12am-1pm and 2pm - 3pm every Monday to Friday. At these times, there will always be a teacher present however it may not always be them broadcasting.
Please be patient with us, as this is our first experience of it so we anticipate some technical issues or you may have technical issues for the first few attempts at online lessons. Do not worry this will be expected. If you have any problems do not hesitate to contact Miss Augustine during school hours (9am-3:30pm) to solve any issues. this is the best contact email address or you can contact class teachers via Class Dojo.
We will plan to teach a Numeracy, Literacy and a foundation subject per day. The designated hour slot will include live teaching via Google Meets or a prerecorded lesson and independent activities for the children to complete.
In addition to our daily lessons, we will provide daily physical activities that the children should complete and weekly reading comprehension activities. We also encourage children to access timestables.co.uk to continue to develop their times tables knowledge and will provide other resources to help develop their times tables knowledge and stamina.
Regarding reading books please finish reading them and keep them at home until we return to school. We will endeavour to provide reading opportunities and materials for children throughout this time.
We hope this information can provide clarity for you. If you have any queries do not hesitate to contact us via Class Dojo or Miss Augustine’s email address as above.
