Good morning Year 4

Welcome to day 4 learning from home, I would love to know how you found the sound clips/audio clips to help you with your learning. Has it been helpful? (Please let me know!) 


We have another jam packed day! 

Maths - Maths challenge 

English - Editing and improving / final draft 

Topic - 10 questions... 

RE - Hindu festival - Holi 

Story time - World’s Worse Children 2  ‘Grubby Gertrude’ by David Walliams (


I hope that you enjoy the learning, please remember to start your day with the Joe Wicks PE lesson and end it with a diary entry about home learning. 

For example, mine today (Wednesday) would say 

'Dear diary, 

Day 3 indoors, I have spent the ENTIRE DAY indoors, with my family... So many people, so much noise, so much work to do! Creating sound files with my family around is impossible! It has been lovely to hear from all my lovely munchkins and I am so proud of how they have adapted to learning from home. I hope things get better soon...' 


As you've shown me your learning spaces, I thought it would be nice to show you my classroom / office 


PE with Joe Wicks
