Hello Year 4s! Wow - only 2 weeks left of the school year; you'll be Year 5s before we know it! I hope you are enjoying seeing your classmates on zoom or in real life. Mr Jackson is so excited about teaching you next year and I am so happy to be working with you again in September! I hope you enjoy the activities I have set for the week and the new video message I have uploaded. Have a good week - stay safe.
A new video message from Mrs Crowther
I am lucky to have a piano at home. I have been enjoying play a lot during lockdown - Let it Go is the piece I have been practising today!. I have written another song; this one's on the piano. Enjoy!
Can you believe that it is the last week of this half term? What a strange half term it has been! That means that this is our last week of learning about the Ancient Egyptians. I have been so impressed with all of your work and I really hope you have enjoyed it - this is certainly one of my favourite topics. I believe the postman may have delivered something to you last week..... I hope you enjoyed recieving some post and I am enjoying reading your replies.
Remember to keep smiling and having fun at home and think how much you will appreciate being around all of your friends, once it is safe.
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. Did you do anything to celebrate VE day on Friday? Did you hang bunting or decorate any flags? I am very proud of all of your hard work and it is lovely to recieve your emails to see photographs and to hear how you have been keeping busy. Are you enjoying the Ancient Egypt topic? Like you are probably used to by now, there is now another page of suggested activities for you to have a go at. As always, if you have any questions or if you need any help with anything, please let me know.
Have a great Monday.
Guides to the method we use in class to answer arithmetic questions.
I hope you are all having a great week so far. For those of you who are continuing to practice arithmetic, I have attached some helper sheets above to remind you of the methods we learnt in class. If there are any methods you want me to add, please be in touch and let me know. I have attached multiplying 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers and the bus stop method guides first of all.

Hello Year 4,
It is Monday again which means there are more suggestions of activities for you to have a go at. Thank you all for all of your hard work and for continuing to send me photographs of what you have been doing to keep busy and keep smiling! If there is anything at all that you are finding tricky or you have forgotten how to do, please email me on Purple Mash or ask your grown up to send me a message to ask for help. I know that we are not in school together but I am still here to help you.
Here is a link to a book you may like to read. It is all about how to deal with our worries when things seem different to normal.
I hope you’re all okay, keeping safe and have enjoyed the Easter break.
I have missed being in school and seeing you each day – it certainly does feel like a long time since I last saw you but please don’t forget, I’m here in you need me. Each week, I will continue to upload a selection of suggested activities to complete at home in addition to daily reading and times tables practice. These activities are sorted into the following categories: English, maths, topic and creative. These are attached to the document above for your reference.
We are mindful that all of our families are in very different situations and therefore would like to emphasise that the activities suggested, are just that – suggestions. The activities are designed to be fun and easy for you to support. They are not designed or intended to add any stresses or strain to your home and family life.
Friday 3rd April
Good morning Year 4.
Today is the last day of term - it certainly doesn't feel the same as it normally does but I'm sure you are all ready for the Easter break. This is now a time for you to relax, spend time with your family and have fun!
I am going to set lots of 2dos on Purple Mash and give a few ideas of activities you might want to do over the next two weeks, but this is not essential - just some suggestions incase you feel like would like to keep busy.
Write a diary about anything you have been doing and how you are feeling each day.
Research an endangered animal in the rainforest and produce a factfile about it.
Write a story about a picture on Pobble https://www.pobble365.com/ - there is a different picture each day! Can you try and include speech?
Write a book review.
I hope you all have a fantastic Easter filled with family time and of course chocolate.
Bye for now,
