Year 4 - working from home

Hello Year 4 smiley


You told us that while you are at home, you want to do similar things to what you do at school and on the same days. So - we have prepared a timetable of activities for you and we hope you have fun doing them.


You will need to use the internet for some of them so you will need to use the passwords in your reading record. There is also a list of creative activities for you to do which do not rely on using the internet.  Please practise reading and spelling and continue learning your times tables for a few minutes each day, too.


We hope that you continue to enjoy learning at home, just as you do in school. We look forward to the time when we can welcome you back into school and we cannot wait to hear about what you've learned. Have fun!


Mrs.Knowles, Mr.Donaldson and Mrs.Babicki

Easter Break

Hello Year 4 laugh 

We hope that you and your families are all well and that you have managed to do some learning while you are at home. We have been busy too as we have been writing your school reports. It's lovely for us to remember how well you have done since you joined us in Year 4 last September! Keep learning your times tables and common exception word spellings and read as often as you can, then you will get off to a flying start in Year 5 laugh.


We will put another timetable of weekly activities on here on Sunday April 19th, ready to begin the week on Monday 20th April. We will be starting a new topic all about the local area. In the meantime, you can do some of our non screen challenges or make the most of the lovely weather we are expecting. Whatever you do, have fun and don't eat too many Easter eggs!

Non Screen Challenges

Mr.Donaldson has put together a list of activities which don't need access to the internet. Why not give them a go?

Week 1 Activities

Here is a timetable of activities which you can do at home this week. (You might want to do all the tasks in a big notebook to keep them all together.) Click on the web links to find the web pages that you will need to complete the tasks. You may need to use the passwords that you wrote in your reading record. Have fun learning at home smiley


My Maths - when you have completed the lessons, you can use your personal login to do the homework task. If you do this, your teachers can see how you are getting on! 


Spellings - the list of spellings for this week is on the Year 4 Term 2B document.



Week 2  Activities

Hello smiley  We hope that you are enjoying doing some of the activities on the timetable at home. We also hope that you have managed to find time to play outside in the sunshine. It would have been a lovely time to go Lea Green, wouldn't it?!  Are you joining in with Joe Wicks's PE lesson each morning at 9.00 am on You Tube? It's really good fun! It's fascinating hearing Joe's shout outs and finding out about children all over the world who are joining in too! 

Anyway, here is the timetable for Week 2. (Message for parents - Please don't worry if you can't get on to the suggested websites. Sometimes, you can't do an activity in Google Chrome if it uses Flash Player. It usually works if you open the page in Internet Explorer /Microsoft Edge. If this still doesn't work, feel free to search the internet for other websites to support learning for that lesson.)  Have fun!

Spellings -Year 1 and 2 Common Exception Words

It's really important that you continue to practise reading each day while you're at home. You can follow the link to the Oxford Owls page and use your login details to read books from our reading scheme or read your own books. Whatever you choose to read, write it in your reading record as you usually would.
