Year 4 2021 - 2022
Welcome to our Year 4 class page.
We have been looking at G –Suite for Education, which includes Google Classroom to support children’s learning in and out of school.
There are a lot of videos about google classroom out there for parents – the following are quite short and to the point. It’s important that if children will be using iPads/Android at home that they download all of the Google Apps first (listed in attached document)

Year 4 have accessed work on Google Classroom in school and should know how to complete and ‘turn in’ their assignments. I have set this week’s homework on Google Classroom, a fact-file entitled All About Me, this is a trial run to give them a bit of practice with the new platform.
The login for Google Classroom can be found on a sticker at the back of the children’s reading diary.
Remember our rules about online safety.
Message from Mrs Croft SENCO
We appreciate this is a challenging time, I wanted to share this quote that has been circulating between schools. If after one day of home learning, you are wondering how you’ll get through the next few weeks read this, take a break, then start again tomorrow!
‘Arguing with your kids to do work is not what anyone needs right now. Instead, cuddle up together and read, read, read. Take turns reading. Read them your favourite novel (yes, you can read novels to small children). Do a puzzle. Build a fort. Bake. Watch TV together. Paint. Get out the lego and build together. Set up a tent in your living room and camp out. Look at photos of when you were a kid. In other words… Don’t stress about them forgetting. Don’t stress about home schooling them. Just spend time together. Your kids won’t learn much if they’re feeling stressed. Though this is a scary time, it could very well be a time they remember as the best time in their life.’
If you are feeling anxious, or would just like tips on relaxation for yourself and your child, download the smiling mind app. It’s great to do with the whole family. I use it when I can’t sleep. There are programs for different ages. It’s great! I have also put a list of charities and helpline phone numbers on my SENCO page. Stay safe and well.
