Hello 4JB and Parents,

Whilst the school is closed, I will be keeping in touch with you through this website. You will find lots of activities to try at home to keep your minds and bodies working.


As I mentioned in the pack I sent home on Friday, I would like you to do three things for me everyday:

  • Daily Reading- whether it's a book from Bug Club or one from your favourite author. (Don't forget to make a note of the days you read.)
  • Spellings- choose the next 6 from the grid in your pack. If this grid becomes exhausted, the full High Frequency Words lists can be found on 4H's class page.
  • Times tables- keep practising the next times table you need to do. Again the times table sheets can be found on 4H's class page, so download and get practising!




Don't forget to use your log in details for Bug Club, Espresso and Education City. There are lots of video clips for you to watch, games to play and sheets for you to complete. Have fun!


Joe Wicks, the keep fit expert, will be streaming PE sessions on You Tube every morning at 9am for you to take part in.  Tell me if you have enjoyed them-If they're good fun, I'll join in myself:).

Twinkl, BBC BiteSize and GoNoodle websites are also worth a look!
Learning, as you know, doesn't just mean reading, writing and arithmetic; it comes in all shapes and sizes. I've added some other activities that I hope you will enjoy participating in. I've added a months worth of Lego activities for you to try and 50 activities set out by the National Trust to get you out and about in the garden.

Please feel free to send any work you have done for me to look at. Don't forget to take photos of your creations and send them to me via email. I look forward to seeing them :) .

Hello 4JB and Parents,

As from today,like you, I will be on my Easter holidays, . I will not, therefore, be putting any work on the website for you to do. However I've thought of a few life skills that you could be trying whilst you enjoy your Easter break.

I know that some of these are already being done by yourselves so this is a list for those who would like to start.

  • Cooking- have fun making something and of course eating it too.
  • Money skills- set up a shop and practise your adding money and finding change skills.
  • Telling the time- always good so you know when breaks are or your favourite TV programme are on.
  • Touch typing- for all those emails to your friends.
  • Make a cup of tea- your mum and dad might like this one.
  • Wash up- good way of pleasing everyone in the house. (Did you know there is a special order to wash plates etc.? Find out what it is.)
  • Try your own shoe laces- very good one to do before getting to Year 5.
  • Sew on a button or darn a hole in your sock- You could even make a sock puppet and have a puppet show.
  • Fold clothes- good way of helping your mum and dad again.
  • Put a new duvet cover on your bed-without ending up inside the duvet cover.


Don't forget to do your spellings, reading and tables (if you have time too.)

Have a rest, stay safe and have lots of fun.


Enjoy your holidays.

I look forward to hearing about your holidays after Monday 20th April 2020

Term 5

Hello everybody! Welcome back!

I hope you had a great Easter and spent lots of time eating eggs, having fun and trying lots of new things.


This term, I hope you will continue with your spellings, reading and times tables  as you did last term. Don't forget to use Bug Club as it has many interesting and humorous stories and fact books.


Every day I will be posting an English and Maths activity for you to do. As a change I will be setting a Link learning project for you to do over a fortnight. The first project will be on the Vicious Vikings.


The book we will be looking at in the first week is the Iron Man by Ted Hughes.

If you do not have a copy, you can hear it on You Tube.

There are only 5 chapters so you can listen to one every day.

Below is a copy of the Iron Man text and the You Tube addresses so you can listen to each chapter.

Hello children,

Mr Edwards has asked me to pass this on to you.


It's a set of fun activities that you and your family can do at home. Enjoy.




To add to your fun, I've put together some science questions, investigations and things for you to make about light.

Here's some activities to get you in the Vicious Viking mood!
It would be lovely to hear from all of you every week. So whether you have work to show or you just want to say hello, just drop me an email! I look forward to hearing from you.

Week 2 sees a new book and a new maths topic. This week I would like you to read 'Beowulf and the Beast'. It is a bug club book which has been downloaded into your account. I'd like you to read the first chapter and have a go at the questions I've set.


In Maths, we are going to be looking at co-ordinates. They are great fun so enjoy yourself. Remember with co-ordinates you write the number on the x-axis first, then the number on the y-axis.

Hello everyone! I'd like to start the week off with a celebration-

Star Wars Day.

May the FOURTH be with you!


Today I have put together a range of activities you can do to celebrate Star Wars Day in style. If you have never watched any Star Wars films before, I have found a stop motion film that tells you a rough outline of the first three films.


May the 4th Be With You - LEGO STAR WARS

The Fastest and Funniest LEGO® Star Wars™ story ever told. The original Star Wars saga as told by a kid with one amazing LEGO STAR WARS collection. A retelli...

I hope you had fun on Star Wars day and made something interesting. For the next couple of days we will be reading the book called Global Challenge: Buried Treasure. You will find it on your Bug Club page.
As you know, Friday is VE Day. I hope you will be celebrating along with everyone on the 75th Anniversary of the end of World War II. I will not be setting any work tomorrow so you can have lots of fun.

4) Fly a kite.

5) Make some story stones and tell a story. (Look on the internet for what they are.)

6) Do some mindful colouring.

8) Have a go at leaf rubbing.

9) Take part in a nature walk scavenger hunt.

10) Do a children's yoga sessions from the internet.

Term 6

Hello 4JB! Can you believe it is Term 6 already? I hope you had a great May Holiday with your family and are ready for the term ahead.


For the first two weeks we will be looking at the book called 'The Last Viking'. I hope you enjoy it. It was written by Terry Deary, who is the famous author of all the Horrible History books.



I've also had fun making some Fishy Maths work for this week.

I thought it would be fun to have a French Fortnight.

Over the next two weeks, I would like you to practise your French vocabulary by making some games, dances and lots more.

I have put some ideas that you could do and a list of You Tube clips you could have a look at to help you remember the words we have covered. I have also added French clothes which is a new set of words for you to have a look at.


In addition to this, I would like you to create a project about France. It can be on anything you find interesting. I have put together a list of subjects you might want to investigate.

What can you see?

As we have been reading the Cloud Rider, I thought I'd set you some tasks about clouds. Have fun!

Hello 4JB,

I hope you had a super weekend and are ready for a week of fun. Did you know it is


I have found a brilliant website that has hundreds of activities that you can learn and try over the next three weeks. Here's the address:

The organization is called ENGAGE. They work with artists and galleries to bring art to people in the United Kingdom.


Art Week 2020

Children's Art Week is a UK-wide programme that gives children and young people the opportunity to get involved in a wide range of art activities online, at home and in schools across three weeks in June and July. Each week will focus on a special theme.

Our 2020 themes are…

Week 1 (from 29 June): The Natural World
Week 2 (from 6 July): Connecting across generations
Week 3 (from 13 July): Literacy and creative writing


So what are you waiting for? Go online and see what you can try and learn?


I've also found a few activities you may want to have a go at too.

Over the next two weeks, I have found you a great book on Bug Club called 'Dinkin Dings and the Frightening Things' for you to do work on. In Maths, I'd like you to have a go at using BODMAS.(You'll understand what I mean when you try the work).

Don't forget... BIG DAY.....Wednesday 1st July 2020!

That's the day we will be seeing each other at school. If you haven't told me you are coming, please drop me an email to say.


Hope you had a great time yesterday. Here's today's tasks.

Salut 4JB! If we were in school this week we would be celebrating French Week. I know we have already done some French revision this term but here's something new. The theme for Year 4 this year is 'Rooms in a house'. So for this week we will be learning about the names of different rooms in French and furniture too.


From Monday to Wednesday, we will be finishing off Dinkin Dings and then for a change, we will be completing some listening comprehensions based on the daring reporter Tintin. You will find the stories to watch and listen on You Tube. In Maths, we will be working on finding missing numbers in number sentences.

Can you name these famous landmarks in France? Do you know why they were built?

Here are your English, Maths and French tasks for today. I've also added some recipes you may wish to try.
