Welcome to Year 4 Birch Class Page

Could you be caught in the web?

Project Overview

Throughout this REAL Project, we will explore what it means to get caught up in activities, focusing on the internet and the time we spend on it. We will be looking at E-safety and what this means to us and how we can keep ourselves safe when we use the internet. In addition, we will be taking part in interviewing an internet expert, Paul Bradshaw, who will help us to stay safe online. Throughout the whole project, we will constantly reflect on our time spent online and thinking about other activities that we really enjoy.

Mini Outcomes

  1. Plan questions and interview an Internet expert Paul Bradshaw

2. Prepare internet safety event for Internet Safety Day.

  1. To make a dreamcatcher to show what other things we could spend our time doing if we stay off line

Final outcome

To make an e-book to share safety messages with other children.

Reading records (blue book) and home readers must be in school every day.

Please make it a priority to read with your child and sign their reading records at least three times a week.

Homework is given out on a Friday. Children will be given 2 pieces of homework per week – Maths and English on SEESAW.

Spellings will also be set on Spelling Shed for pupils to learn – please let us know if there is a problem getting online.

Pupils are also expected and will be monitored online by class teachers that they complete the following activities:

Reading Plus – complete 2 comprehensions per week.

Maths Shed – 30 minutes per week. 

Times Table Rockstars – regular practise.

If your child does some additional home learning, or if they build or make something inspired by our project, please post pictures on Seesaw, or email us at school.
