What age can my child start social networking?


As a parent it’s important you know that all social networking platforms (or social networking apps, if on a smartphone) have age limits. Some social networks use technologies that might not be right for some ages, or engage with communities that are made up of people much older than your child.

This Live Lesson will help your child to think and work like a scientist, with a focus on taste, nutrition, and the energy that food provides.

I want you to think back to me jumping around the classroom yelling left larger, right reduce. Hopefully this will jog your memory. Finally in history you will be writing and drawing a timeline for the Ancient Egyptians. Enjoy!

Today in your learning you are continuing on with sentences for English, multiplying by 100 for Maths and continuing on sound for Science. Make sure you look at some of the other stars on the home learning page. I am loving the master chef star and have been cooking some recipes off it.

Week five 4th May - 8th May


May the fourth be with you! Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and kept safe. Have you seen the toilet paper challenge on the home learning page? We had so much fun making it!! This week is a short week, as we have a bank holiday for the 75th anniversary of VE day. I hope you enjoy your learning today as we are doing a bit of drama in English. I wish so much that I could see your fantastic drama skills, but I sure you will do a great job. Don't forget where your audience is.



Hi year 4! Hope you are all well and I am sure you are all working so hard on your learning challenges. Today, you will be completing a SPaG on contractions and writing a diary entry looking at contractions, past tense and time connectives - all our learning from the past three weeks. In the afternoon, you can complete an art task. I would love to see your pictures so please send them through to

It has been so fantastic to see some of the drawing that people have sent through.



Happy Wednesday year 4! Have you seen the VE quiz above, as well as the bunting? I've tried the quiz and some of the questions are a little tricky. I suggest you complete the guiding reading before, as it is on VE day so it might help you. I hope you still have your acting skills ready to go, because today in English you will be Howard Carter in the Hot Seat! In maths we are continuing on with angles and ordering them. Finally in science there are some great videos for you to watch explaining sound. Have fun!



It's the end of our short week. Tomorrow is a bank holiday which means it is an extra day off for everyone. Today, your work will mostly be about VE day, the reason we are having a day off. I want you to really think about the importance of this day and how our past history has shaped us as a nation today. There are some fun activities in the afternoon that you get choose to do. I hope you enjoy them.

Also, we want you to to visit and practise timetables test everyday. Record your results and see how much you can improve!!

Hello 4C and welcome to week two!


All of the Year 4 adults are very much missing seeing your faces every morning, smiling and laughing. We hope you are enjoying your tasks and are working very hard on them. 


This week we are doing our learning a bit differently. In English we will be looking at one video and you will be completing a variety of tasks on it over the next five days. In Maths we are focusing on skills we have already learnt, which means when we are back at school you will be experts on them. 


Keep practising your timetables, your spellings and read everyday.


Hoping to see you soon,


Miss Cook and Miss Ogneva
