Hello Year 4s!
It’s the end of the first week and it has flown by for me! It’s just a shame that the sunshine seems to have disappeared. Thanks very much for letting me know how the children are getting on. I hope you have a great weekend and I’ll be with you again on Monday!
The reading lesson is our normal Love of Reading session. Relax with a book, talk about books, plan your next read.
The maths lesson comes from the BBC Daily Lessons. If you’re after a few more challenges, feel free to have a go at the Year 5 and 6 ones. The idea of these is that you work collaboratively as a family to solve them. Click here for the link.
Our final Friday lesson is a new art project about British artist, Andy Goldsworthy. Click here for a video which introduces the project.

Here’s today’s learning:
It’s Wednesday which is times tables practice day! This week, I want you to practice your twelve times table. First, I’d like you to use Times Table Rockstars or Hit the Button (https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button) to practise your tables. After that, I want you to complete the sheet. Repeat this task a few times in the week to make sure that you’re improving!
Wednesday is also grammar day. Each Wednesday, there’ll be a short writing task. This week it’s all about prepositions. Y3,4 – Wednesday – prepositions

Hello Year 4s!
I hope you had a good half-term and managed to enjoy yourselves and make the most of the warm weather. Things are changing a little this half-term as school as opening to more children. This means that most teachers will be back working at school full-time. The good news is I’m going to still be doing your home learning. However, I’m also now doing the home learning for Y1, Y2 and Y3. Hopefully, you won’t notice much of a difference but there may possibly be fewer video lessons with me.
Anyway, on to today’s learning…

Half-term Home Learning
Because this week is half-term, we’re taking a break from the usual daily home learning tasks (just like we did at Easter). Instead, we’ve prepared a menu of home learning activities that you might want to dip into this week – these are optional only, but you might want to encourage your child to have a go at being a quiz master, doing some up-cycling, presenting a cookery masterclass or any of the other activities.
Whatever you decide to do, we hope you have a happy and healthy half-term.

It’s the Love of Reading session today so grab a book, get comfortable and enjoy reading. For a change you might want to do some different. If so, you could draw a character from the book you’re reading, write a review of the book, change the ending to a favourite story.
The maths lesson are the daily challenge from the BBC lessons. If you’re finding these too difficult have a go at the ones on the Y3 page. Alternatively, if you’re finding them too easy, have a go at the Y5 challenges. Click here for the link.
In today’s music lesson, we are going to use our musical talents. I know some of you play instruments and lots of you love singing and dancing to rhythms.This is a fantastic lesson on pulse and rhythm. Follow this link from Oak Academy to practice your beats and rhyme. You may need a pencil and paper to make some notes.
