Welcome to Year 4!
Home Learning Activities During School Closure
We hope you are all well and looking after yourselves. Below we have added a weekly planner with some home learning activities. These link to the learning that we would have completed if we had been in school. It is really important to continue learning at home during the time away from school.
We have been so proud of the progress that you have all made so far this year, please keep up the hard work. We are keen to find out what you have been doing and celebrate your learning with you so please do get in touch with us via the school e-mail address.
We look forward to seeing you as soon as we can.
Wow! We have been so impressed with learning that has been sent to us and have really enjoyed reading your messages. Thank you to you all for your hard work and super learning during this time away from school. We hope you enjoy the activities that have been set this week.
In addition to the activities set we have added below the Year 3 and 4 common exception words and a handwriting sheet. You may want to use this sheet to support you with your spellings or use some of the spelling strategies that we have completed in class. For those of you that have been trying to improve your handwriting in class, perhaps you may like to do some daily handwriting. Remember to keep your letters a consistent size and take care with your joins.
We hope you have enjoyed the times table videos and have continued to learn these at home. How may of you have completed the multiplication times table check online? Remember we can also use 'Hit the Button' or TTRS to support us with out times tables.
Remember to read each day too. Although we can't meet in the library to share our recommended read it would be good to upload some of your own book reviews on our class page.
A big thank you to all of our families, we look forward to discussing your child's progress with you this week and thank you for your continued support.
Keep sending the messages and work, we can't wait to find out what you have been doing. Let us know if you are happy for us to upload your work or photographs when you e-mail us. It would be great to share your learning with the rest of Year 4 if you are happy to do that.
Have fun with your learning this week

In class we have been reading the story 'The Green Ship' written by Quentin Blake. We were hoping to use the playpod to explore our creativity but due to the wet weather we used the junk modelling which Classes 1 and 2 kindly let us borrow for the morning! We used this to create our own vessels, replacing the green ship.
Each group were very adventurous with their designs. They also created story mountains for their own versions of the story and acted these out to the class.
We had a visit from author of Willow Wildthing and the Swamp Monster, Gill Lewis. We all enjoyed an assembly where Gill read extracts from the book, spoke about her inspirations and gave top tips for becoming an author. She also answered many of our questions and led a great activity on woodland animals. After the assembly, some of the children purchased a book and had it signed by Gill.
