Good morning Year 4,
I hope you’re all keeping safe and well.
Thank you to those of you who managed to send me some work in, it was a sheer delight. Keep them coming in. I would love to see some pictures of you reading your books too- they will look great on the Reading For Pleasure blog.
Don’t forget the BBC Bitesize website has lots of great lessons and videos on all subjects- Geography, science, history etc.
Take a look.
Here is the work for this week.
I have continued with the new form of daily maths questions and you can find those questions here:
White Rose Maths
If you have kept up to date with the White Rose Maths lessons, you should be up to Home Learning – Week 10. They are still posting videos for the lessons but they have stopped providing the question and answer sheets for free. Fortunately, we have a subscription which allows us to post the sheets on our blog (please find sheets below).The videos can be found by following this link:
If you are still working your way through previous lessons, please continue to do so – don’t just skip ahead to this week’s work. Question and answers sheets are still available on the link below for previous weeks’ lessons.

Excitedly, Harry would greet the hand, but it was gone all too soon. No one wanted to stop. No chatting today.
Time to go, it seems Harry was hungry as he offered Jack the hat with a splattering of coins. Jack, too tired to argue, too cold to care, mounted his bike and within a second Harry had jumped onto the back.
They sped through, as fast as they could, puddles splashing up, rain pouring down, and wind blowing across. Every which way, the elements were on them.
Home at last, the coins tinkled into the vast jar. Jack sighed. Was it ever going to fill? Slumping back onto the bed, Harry became his blanket. Another day done. The dream. Mega City Motors…one day.
Another day. Another few coins. Clink, clink. Chink, chink, Clunk. The jar IS filling! The days are getting brighter!
Today, a beautifully bright day and as Jack and Harry venture onto new pastures one thing is for certain. Jack needs to let Harry know how special he is. Only one way to do that.
