Hello again Year 4

There is no new news to report from me this week I’m afraid, so I’ll keep this brief!  As we are quickly coming to the end of your official time in year 4, I’m still urging you all to be doing a little bit of work each day! Working on times tables, reading or completing some of the online learning tasks I’m setting will all help you be just that little bit more ready for your move to year 5!

I will be in school for the next few weeks so if there is any issues or you would like me to email or print some work booklets to complete on paper, please do give the school a ring and I’ll see what I can do to help!

Stay safe, be good and keep working hard!

Mr Smith


BBC Bitesize

We’re still using BBC bitesize for the range of key worker children who are in school and are encouraging more written work as to not fall out of practice of setting out our work neatly and with pride! There are plenty of activities to have a go at on there all week so see what takes your fancy!

If the year 4 lessons are too easy to too hard it’s OK to have a go at another year’s work, especially if some of the work set this week for the other year groups links to some of our wider topics such as the Ancient Greeks or Egyptians!



I am continuing with our revision work for this week and moving onto written methods for multiplication and division this week. I’ve been saying how important your times tables are all year and it’s work like this where they really make a difference!  Once again I may even put up some year 5 tasks for anyone who wants to have a go!


My Maths/Purple Mash

You will find some multiplication  and division work on MyMaths and Purple Mash this week.


Don’t forget to keep practicing your times tables and have a look for any games that involve using times tables

Morning Maths Challenge

For any children missing my Morning Maths number 11 challenge, here is an online version of it for you to have a go at



I have set enough tasks for you to do one a day, SPaG tests ranging from year 2 SPaG to year 4 SPaG. Remember, these tests can be very difficult and will mark your answers wrong if just one word is misspelled or just one piece of punctuation is missing. Take your time and try your best!

Spelling Shed

I have set all groups a new set of spellings this week. Your challenge is to get the rank of ‘Queen Bee’. To practice your writing, you could try to use this weeks spellings in a sentence and write those sentences in your home learning books. Any words you don’t know the meaning of look them up in a dictionary or on the internet!

Pobble365 or Literacy Shed

I am continuing to promote these two great websites and can’t wait to see the stories you’ve written when we get back to school. Simply choose and picture or video and let it be the inspiration for a fantastic story.

This week, I recommend this picture As well as completing the tasks below the picture, you could draw your own comic book with speech bubbles of one of Batman’s crime fighting missions or you could write an exciting fight scene using some onomatopoeia for description.

Or, why not try this video?

Purple Mash-Reading

Choose a Serial Mash book to read through and have a go at the quizzes and other tasks that it offers. Just do a chapter at a time!

You could also choose a book at home you enjoy reading and make up your own quiz about the parts you have read to challenge other people who read the book!

David Walliams

David Walliams is still doing free audio stories of some of his own books which you will find on his website. Theyre a great listen while your’re working on something else!


Don’t forget you can keep trying the world geography games online, can you correctly name all the countries in Europe on a map yet?

This week’s task for Geography, I’m going to ask you to research European biomes! What is a biome? What biomes do you find in Europe? What is the difference between different biomes? You could present this information however you want! There is lots to learn on this topic so enjoy!

Stay safe and keep working hard!
