Year 4 Hub


As you know, due to the current situation children have been completing work at home. The platform we at Blessed Dominic are using is Google Classroom. I have been so impressed with the quality of all the work submitted by 4D. Well done boys and girls- you are a credit to yourselves and your families. Across all curriculum subjects work is being submitted to a high standard. Our science topic this term is “Electricity”. The children have worked hard to make an electrical circuit at home. I hope you appreciate their fantastic work as much as I do. Click on the word document below.

Good Evening 4DΒ  & Parents,

I have discussed children’s homework with them, but so you also know these are the instructions πŸ™‚

Maths: Login to Google Classroom- Children had an opportunity to use their logins today in school, they all worked, apart from two children.

Maths homework can be completed directly on the google document and turned in. YOU DO NOT NEED TO COMPLETE ON PAPER AND THE ONLINE DOC.

Science:

Google classroom- follow the instructions on the assignment. This homework does not need to be done by tomorrow. Monday is the date.

Have a lovely evening. πŸ™‚


Children have their Rediwriter logins. This site helps your child learn their spellings through a range of activities.

Welcome back to Autumn 2 at Blessed Dominic πŸ™‚ I hope you have had a happy and restful half – term. We are looking forward to a productive term of learning.


Important information

School Tracksuits: If you have not done so already, you can order the new school tracksuit from our website

Follow the tab : Parents- Uniform – Shop

When the tracksuits arrive children can come to school wearing their tracksuit. They will wear their tracksuit all day (No changing back into uniform)


Google Classroom:

We are now up and running with Google Classroom. I have spoken to the children about how it works. Children will have their login in their diary.

You can follow the link below to login in

https://classroom.google.com/

We will be doing some of our in class work on here. Also, some homework will be up on this platform for children to use. (I will let your child know in advance when there is homework to complete).

IF OUR BUBBLE NEEDS TO CLOSE (WHICH WE ARE HOPEFUL WILL NOT HAPPEN) Google Classroom is where children will access their online learning. That way, I can mark work and give feed back to children.

As always,

Thank you for your continued support.


A BIG THANK YOU for the kind donations for this year’s Harvest. The charity will be absolutely delighted πŸ™‚

The children enjoyed making Harvest Cards. We discussed all that we are grateful for.
