Hi All,

Hope you are still keeping safe and well. From Monday (18th May), there will be new home learning packs available to collect from school. I know Mrs. Cartledge has been keeping you all up to date with the latest advice from the government, but in the meantime, and until anything changes, I will keep providing you with lots to be getting on with at home. There is a lot to cover in the packs, so don’t be worried if some of the tasks run over into another day.

It was lovely to speak to so many of you on the phone and I will be ringing again in a few weeks to have a chat and see how everyone is doing. Remember when I call, it will be from a withheld or private number but I promise I won’t try to sell you PPI or ask if you have had an accident that wasn’t your fault during the last five years!!

Again, if you would rather have the packs emailed to you, send me an email on year4@corrie.tameside.sch.uk and I will send one over to you. The new battle on TTRockstars is underway and as I mentioned, some of you may well have been aware that all year 4 children in the country were supposed to take the national times tables check test in June. Obviously, under the current circumstances, all such official tests have now been postponed. However, the people at TTRockstars have sent teachers questionnaires to ask whether we think it would be useful for them to put together some form of test that the children could complete at home around the same time to give us an idea of whether the children are where they should be up to and also to allow the children to take a version of the test that they have been practising for all year. These results will not be sent anywhere and will not have any impact on the children moving forward, but it would be nice to recognise all the work they have been doing. Although the details for how this will work have not yet been put together, I will let you know as soon as I know anything and in the meantime, it would be great if you could have another push on getting the children to really work on their tables at home. If you are unsure of the login details for TTRockstars, let me know and I will send them over to you.

All of the websites below are still providing excellent materials to supplement the work we are providing and, as always, above all, just make sure that your amazing children are staying happy and safe during these incredibly challenging times.

If you need any help or support whatsoever, just send me an email on the above address at any time and I will get back to you as soon as I possibly can.

Stay safe,

Mr. G.
