This website has over 100 learning activities and opportunities for KS2 children to complete at home, ranging from creating poetry to exploring science. These are great to allow the children to complete independently or with your support. https://www.scouts.org.uk/the-great-indoors/
Year 4 are very familiar with Accelerated Reader and have been using it a lot throughout the year. They can still access it at home via the site/app, to keep track of their reading progress and increase their reading range.
Year 4 can use any of these sites with their Accelerated Reader login details, which can found on the first page of their Y4 reading records. Their reading ranges are in there too, and if you would like to check a book's range to see if it is suitable for your child, have a look on this site - https://www.arbookfind.co.uk/
Sumdog is a great Maths website/app that the children are familiar with using in school. While the schools are closed, we are able to also use the spelling and reading activities too. The school code is: hillsidebradwell https://www.sumdog.com/user/sign_in

Scratch, the computer coding programme that we use in school, is starting a beginner online course with a new challenge for each day of a 30 day challenge. Each day will have a step by step tutorial and then a short piece of programming that will build the basics of a game. At the end of the challenge, the children will have made 6 games! https://www.createcodeload.com/scratch-teachers-challenge
Real PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity. This programme is also great for family play and fun. It also includes a programme for children in Key Stage 2, with daily and weekly guidance provided for both programmes (starting from next week) in addition to an option to choose your own themes and activities. There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical wellbeing but also to our emotional and mental health, especially in such testing times for all of us. We hope that the ideas help support you and your family to stay fit and healthy in the coming months.
