Home Learning Year 4

This section of the website is to connect school and home learning. The children will now use Google Classroom, to complete their homework; the links to Google Classroom are just below. In the event of another lockdown or a group of children are required to self-isolate, the children will be able to continue with their learning by using Google Classroom. Work will be posted there and they will be able to have video calls with their teacher. We are all passionate about making sure our children do not miss any more of their learning time. If you require any help with this, please contact the school. 

The Department for Education has also produced guidance for parents and carers whilst schools are closed.  Click here for a list of suggested home learning activities and initiatives that are free to use.  Click here for guidelines on how to structure home learning.

'P4C' or philosophy for children is an area of the curriculum all children at BJS will be used to. Thinking philosophically may not be the most important thing to do at the moment but it is diverting, it induces thoughtfulness and it may have some value for life in the present and future.

The Talk for Writing approach enables children to read and write independently for a variety of audiences and purposes within different subjects. A key feature is that children internalise the language structures needed to write through ‘talking the text’, as well as close reading.
