Grade 3 & 4

Grade 4 Remote Learning - July 2021


Dear Parents,

We look forward to working with your children again for this remote learning period. Planned curriculum units of work will continue to be taught. Remote learning will involve face to face teaching of classes as it did last time. 


A 9am Start

From Monday 19th July, Grade 4 students will be required to be online via Webex through their class teacher’s link as listed below at 9am each day. These will also be posted in the Google Classroom.

Note: As Dan Whiting is on extended leave for the week our regular staff member, Ashley Penny will be teaching 4DW.

4LB (with Libby Buck) 

4CL (with Carolyn Lockie)


If your child is working on a new device, please ensure the Cisco Webex Meetings application is downloaded and updated. 


What the day will look like:

Lessons with the class teacher will focus on English and Maths.


9am - Morning check in and attendance marking

9.15-10 Lesson One

Break /finishing off.

10.30-11.15 Lesson Two

Break / finishing off.

11.45-12.30 Lesson Three


The afternoons may be used for students to complete unfinished tasks or meeting their teachers for small group conferencing or assessment as requested by the teacher. Teachers will spend this time preparing and correcting work.


When my teacher is rostered on at school for students of essential workers:

The teacher will let students know when they will be engaged in face to face teaching with students at school. Lessons will be sent for students to work on independently via Google Classroom. These will centre around practise of skills / strategies that have already been taught as this is a key feature of our regular classroom day.

We look forward to continuing our commitment to ensuring your child succeeds throughout times of remote learning. We appreciate your assistance with punctuality for each session.


Yours sincerely,

The Grade 4 Teaching Team
