Year 4 Superstar Readers!

(Week ending 12th February)

Hello year 4!

Hello Kestrels and Parrots!

We are missing you! But we know that we all need to do our bit to keep each other safe. Hopefully it won't be too long until we can see all of your smiling faces again!

This is where you can find your online lessons each week.

We expect everyone to log in to Purple Mash each week to access their spelling lists. There will be a quiz set each week for you to show us how well you have learnt your spellings.

Keep skills sharp! Each week...

  • spend some time practising your times tables. You can do this through some of the links below, or in any other way that you choose! A little bit of practise, often, is usually the easiest way to tackle these tricky maths facts!

  • try to use Oxford Owls, MyOn Digital Library or your own books at home to keep practising the skill of reading. Talk about what you are reading with your parents! Ask questions if you don't understand something, and as you read, make up the pictures in your head like your very own movie! Perhaps you could share a story with younger siblings in the home? We all enjoy a good story!

Please don't forget to email all of your completed work to us! Click on "Tap to Contact" for the email address that you need.

Thank you!

Mrs McMillan and Miss Molyneux.




Each week, choose one book to read and review. You can use your "MyOn" digital library or Oxford Owls (login details below!) to choose a book to read. When you have completed a book of your choice, please complete a book review. (Use the book review template from the file share below, or the book review task on Purple Mash to write about the story.)

We would like all of our children to log in to MyOn everyday! Reading is so important and it needs daily practise! Aim for at least 15 minutes of reading a day. Teachers will be able to see when you have logged in and how much reading you have done. Who will be the Year 4 Star Readers? Find out on a Friday! There will also be some projects set for you to complete based on books that your teacher would like you to read. Please have a go at these too!
