Week Beginning Monday 30th March

Good morning Year 4,

We hope you are all well and are keeping safe at home. Even though you cannot go out to the park or friend’s houses, we hope you have been able to enjoy the fresh air in your gardens. Perhaps some of you have been joining in with the ‘Gardening@Home’ club?

Please use the timetable below for your learning this week. Remember, there is no expectation to complete all of the tasks we have set – but there is plenty there to keep you busy!



Crossnumbers using addition and/or subtraction.

Times Table Rockstars and Hit the Button.

Remember to use your normal  (either expanded or compact) method for addition and subtraction. Show all workings and a bar model for each question. Mark your answers as you are working through each calculation using a calculator.

Each session of maths, complete 5-7 questions.

Remember to keep practising those times tables. You have RockStars, Hit the Button and I’m sure apps you use yourself.

In addition to the above, here are a few suggestions for some other things you might like to do this week.


We’re going on a Bear Hunt!

Kim’s game

Art from Mrs Milne

Put a teddy in your window

When you go out for your daily exercise, how many bears can you spot in windows?


There are lots of residents in Bishop’s Waltham taking part in this so you should be able to spot lots of bears!


Gather a selection of about 20 items from around the house and/or garden on a tray.

You have 30 seconds to memorise as many items as you can. Cover them with a cloth and then name as many items as possible. Who can remember the most?


Year 3 have been challenged to create an Iron Man model out of junk.  Mrs Milne thought it would be fun to extend this challenge to the whole school, and would love to see your junk model creations, be that robots, animals, or anything else that gets your creative juices going.  Keep a look out for Mrs Milne’s weekly art challenges which will be published every Monday morning on the school blog while we are all staying at home.  More tips and techniques for your junk modelling will be uploaded there tomorrow morning.

Please send us pictures of activities you have enjoyed – we will upload a class blog every Monday, Wednesday and Friday so it would be lovely to include some photographs of your home learning to share with our school community!

If you have any questions, please email us using your bwjsapps account.
