Hello again Year 4

Exciting news this week! In school, this week would have been our transition week where you would have found out which teachers you would be having in September, of course this isn’t able to happen but if you haven’t yet seen, go check out year 5’s class page to find out who your year 5 teachers will be! Though I will be sad to see you all go, I know you’ll be in good hands for our eventual return to school! Get ready to work hard and have a great time!

I’m still 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

BBC bitesize is still providing some great activities to have a go at and I’d still love to see some of the work you are producing! Let me know, have you learned anything new and interesting you want to share?

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 area and perimeter. Those times tables we’ve been practicing will come in useful again competing tasks on area! 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 This would be a fantastic picture for a really vibrant descriptive paragraph, describing the colours, the emotions and the actions of everyone involved!

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?


After last time where we researched the different types of plants, this week I’m going to challenge you to perform a simple experiment. What does a plant need to live? Now that the summer holidays are fast approaching now might be a great time to do a little gardening! (if you don’t have a garden, don’t worry) Your challenge for this week is to grow some plants. Many supermarkets sell small plant pots and packets of seeds. Can you get any of them growing? Research what your plants need to grow, how much of each thing and where in your home would be the best place to put your plant. I’d love to see some pictures of some well growing, healthy plants you’ve managed to grow yourselves!

Stay safe and keep working hard!
