I have set up a class login for Oxford Owl where you can access lots of eBooks online. These are the books they would be reading in school so it is very useful! You can also do quizzes on these books, don't forget!
Login Username: year34birch
I have attached the link for your child to complete quizzes on the books that they are reading at home! Quizzes are allowed to be completed between 8:45am and 3:15pm. Children know they must only complete a quiz if they have finished the book and have read to an adult. It doesn’t just have to be their school reading book, it could be any book they are reading at home (providing there’s a quiz on it).
Please use the link below as typing in accelerated reader on google never seems to work! They should know their login. If they’re not sure just email me!
White Rose Maths
We are currently following the White Rose Maths Scheme for our Maths lessons and they have created a lesson each day for a whole week! Please use the links below to explore the online lessons and resources (with answers)! Y4 have just finished fractions and decimals.
Please make sure you click on the correct link depending on which year group your child is in. There are other Year groups on there too if you need to access them for siblings!
Timestable Rockstars is a fantastic app that your children have played at school. It tests speed and recall of timestables in a fun, engaging way. There is a letter and a login in their packs I sent home, but you can email me if you need to request it again. I am able to set different tables for each child, so email me if you need me to alter their tables for them!

I've set up some groups on Purple Mash and I have set some '2Dos' for children to access. I have grouped them according to table names but don't worry if your child seems to be in a different group to what they're normally in, I've had a little change around!
Please find your Purple Mash login in your Home Learning pack. If you can't find it, email me please!

Every morning at 9am, Joe Wicks is providing a 30 minute workout for the whole family. Don't worry if you don't make it there for 9am, you can watch it at a later time. This would make a fantastic start to your day, whenever you're ready, to help you get up and go!
