The week Ahead

Here is this week's timetable.

Forest School and PE days are still Tuesday and Thursday .

Snow day 10.3.23

Year 4 (Year 4) on: Year 4 Class Blog

Good morning team.

As you already know by now school id closed due to the snow.

I'm posting some lessons and ideas that can help filll your day today. I do not want you to attempt this week's Independent writing formally (Feel free to have a practise run, but we'll doing the real thing on Monday.) So here are my recommendations:


1) Write a description or short poem about a snow covered garden or landscape. You could write it as a haiku like we did in Come and See (remember the syllables over the 3 lines should be 5,7,5). You could prep you garden as the scene by going into the snow and making snowmen or whatever else you'd like to describe.

2) Using a stick practise you cursive hand writing/ spelling in the snow.


1) Mrs Hadfield/ Mr Gouldin's group, you have a partition worksheet in the folder at the bottom of the page. The answers are there too. Here's your video: https://vimeo.com/732215903

1b) You guys who usually work in class with me, you have a multiplication sheet along with the answers. Here's your video: https://vimeo.com/771674540

2) Create an array for the 2 times table using snowballs (This will need a lot of snow)

3) Using 4 snowballs to represent the whole, create mixed numbers like we've been working on in class.

4) TTRockstars, especially if you aren't at Rockstar or faster yet.


Get yourself a warm drink (ask an adult to help you) bundle up under a blanket or some other cosy clothing (preferably somewhere you can still see outside) and read your book. Trust me this is an amazing combination.

2) If you know your login, do some Bedrock or play some Spelling Shed.


1) You could make some salt dough sculptures. Either snowflakes taking inspiration from today's weather or maybe something to do with nature (trees or leaves). Here's a website with an easy recipe: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/how-make-salt-dough-recipe

2) Make something in the snow whether it be a snowman, a smaller version of Rodine's 'The Thinker' or even something from another topic (a train or farm animal). Maybe you could make something from Jesus in the desert (the apple he's tempted by, the serpent or one of the angels).

3) Tick off your PE lesson by playing in the snow: sledging, snow angels, snowball fights (make sure everyone involved knows about the snowballs though and stay safe)

Whichever activities you choose to do, you can email me your videos/ pictures/ work to y4@olsj.org.uk

Stay safe and warm everyone, enjoy your day and weekend and we'll see you Monday.
