Yr 4 Week Commencing 11th May

Welcome to Week 4!


How's everything going?! We're so pleased to be hearing from more of you, and getting to see what you've been up to! Thank you and keep it coming!

We are looking forward to catching up with some of you on Tuesday in our Zoom meetings. It will be a chance to catch up with your teacher, teaching assistant and class friends. We just ask that you treat it as you would a classroom, with respect and kindness! laugh


Top Tip: Try to complete your Maths and English daily tasks in the morning. This way the rest of the day can be used to complete Sumdog challenges, chip away at your topic project or to get stuck into your reading.


Thank you so much for sharing your work with us - we're loving the work you're doing! Remember, if you need any help or have any questions, please email us at or you can simply place a comment on the activity in Google Classroom. 


We hope to hear from you soon! laugh yes

This Week's Topic


This week’s topic is named ‘United Kingdom’. There are many activities for you to look at, from kings and queens to flags, mountains to monuments and from festivals to the Olympics.

Talking of the Olympics, I know a lot of you were either not around then or were watching if from your prams and push chairs, but you could always watch a video I have put on the resource centre. It’s called ‘A Golden Games’. I’ll challenge any parent to watch that without getting a bit teary eyed in places.

It really is a great watch if you love sport and PE so have a look! 

It has also been requested that I set a challenge for this week so here it is:


One of the topic tasks set has been to design a flag. If I am sent 20 excellent examples of this by Friday (obviously from 20 different people) to:  I will endure a three ice bucket misery. Fortunately, I will be judging if they are excellent or not! As usual, I will not be partaking in any water based punishments if the challenge is not met!

Good Luck!
