Happy Fri-yay Year 4!

We have made it to the end of another week. Thank you for working so hard.

Today as usual, after your Maths and English, I’m giving you time to work on your North East England project. I hope you enjoy yourselves.


Today we are moving on to look at equivalent fractions. Listen carefully and try as many questions as you possibly can. Remember, if you can’t get the answer straight away, keep thinking and trying!

English – Reading

Today in English, we are going to read and answer questions all about Carnivals around the world. Read the information carefully and remember to answer the questions using full sentences and your neatest handwriting.

Carnival Reading Comprehension with Questions

As an extra activity, I would like you to design your own carnival costume. Think back to the pictures we saw yesterday in our video. You can be as creative as you like 🙂

Project – North East England

Whether you’ve been in school or at home, I know you all have lots of ideas about what you want to write, draw and create for your projects. I’ve reattached the original information sheet which has on it lots of ideas if you want to check back. I hope you enjoy your afternoon, getting creative!

Friday project

Looking after our Mental Health

This week is Children’s National Mental Health Week and as we’ve talked about in class, it’s very important that everyone looks after their mental health. If you had a sore arm or leg you’d tell someone about it. So if you’re feeling a little sad or down, then it’s important you share that with someone too. The video below has lots of ways we can make ourselves feel better and get help.

The theme of this year’s Mental Health Week is Express Yourself. Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. It is about finding a way to show who you are and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself.  From this Friday there will be a section of the Focus dedicated to ‘Expressing Yourself’ and if you want to, you can contribute! And teachers will be contributing too and sharing with you what we do when we’re feeling low. The link below has lots of ideas about how you can express yourself, perhaps you could find time to look through it with someone you live with?

Skipping Challenge:

And finally, fancy something energetic? I have this week’s skipping challenge for you to do – it’s the ‘Hop and Swap’. Remember if you don’t have skipping ropes, don’t worry, perhaps you can watch and then you’ll be ready for when we come back to school and practise.

Enjoy the weekend everyone.
