Week 5 (beginning 4.5.20)

Hello Year 4!

I hope you have all had a great weekend!

With learning being extremely different to how we are used to it school, some things are bound to be challenging but I'm sure that you are all trying hard and doing your best!


I've been so impressed with the fantastic work you are completing and really like to see it. It’s also great to see how many of you are still trying hard with your handwriting and the messages to say how much effort you are putting into it is really encouraging. Keep it up! I will now start to give out pen license points so you can still keep collecting them! Don’t forget to keep adding to our class ‘Gratitude’ blog - it's a great way for us all to keep in touch and talk to each other so feel free to comment on each other’s posts as well as mine!


Don't forget, Friday is a Bank Holiday - so no work!

make sure you have fun and relax!




We all agree that it’s really important that you are as well-prepared as possible for your next school year. To help make this happen, White Rose Maths and the BBC have joined forces!  They’ve created a learning plan which means that you will have the opportunity to:

  • understand the main concepts you need for your work next year
  • cover any new learning that you haven’t yet done in school


Not only will you have White Rose slides to help you learn the content of the lesson, but the BBC maths lessons for the day will match!  This means you can use the White Rose slides and the information on the BBC Bitesize website.

Every day, there will be a learning video on the White Rose web page to watch and a link to that day’s BBC Bitesize page for more information and even more lesson content.

As usual, everyday please can you:

- Read for at least 10 to 15 minutes.

- Practise your weekly spellings:

(Science, scene, fascinate, discipline, scissors)

- Practise your times tables for 10 to 15 minutes on Times Tables Rock Stars or Purple Mash.

- Do 30-60 minutes of exercise (there are some ideas below for Football)

- Complete the Maths and Literacy tasks.

- Complete about 60 minutes of your topic work.
