Year 4

Year 4 Working From Home Resources

I hope you are all well and keeping safe. Below I have compiled helpful links, ideas and information on each of the different subject areas. To help you keep track of what has been added, the newer files appear at the bottom. I have deliberately given you more resources than you could possibly use so that you can pick and choose. Remember to please email me if you need any help or support. Please remind the children that they can email me too! I will try to respond to my emails as quickly as possible. I would love to see what the children are getting up to, so please feel free to email me photos or work they have completed. evaughan@scholargreen.cheshire.sch.uk

English (Spelling) – I would ask that children continue to learn how to read and spell words from the Year 3/4 spelling list (found below). Children also need to learn spelling patterns and spelling rules. There are some useful websites below and I have uploaded a spelling activity menu that has a range of activities.

The children are used to navigating this website as they use it in their computing lessons.
