Y4 Sharing Assembly

It’s that time of the week where we get to see all the wonderful work you’ve sent in! ✨👏

Remember to email your working in to 4Ahomelearning@holbeach.lewisham.sch.uk to see it on the blog next week.

I love Kai H’s artwork! And his colourful rainbow.
Alan’s started writing a story. I can’t wait to read the rest of it!
And Georgia’s also made this great animation.

Y4 Reading comprehension answers – The Green Ship

  1. The imaginary world is the places the children pretend to travel to, and the ship is part of that.
  2. The children imagine the urn in the garden is Italy, the palm tree is Egypt, and that on the chilly day, they were in the Arctic.
  3. The things that belong in the imaginary world are: the Bosun (he’s really the gardener), ‘stowaways’, ‘clap them in irons’, ‘swabbin the decks’, ‘ashore, ‘come aboard’, also Mrs Tredegar refers to being near the Equator and the ceremony of Crossing the Line.
  4. The author reminds us that the ship is made of trees and bushes because the Bosun looks like the gardener, swabbing the decks was actually sweeping away the leaves. The places they ‘sail’ to are parts of the garden, for example ‘bushed became icebergs’.
  5. The children were probably not invited into the garden as they were ‘taken by surprise’ by Mrs Tredegar’s voice.
  6. Mrs Tredegar enjoys the children’s visits to her garden as she makes them tea, ‘trains’ them as ‘crew’, gets an atlas for them to explore and suggests the Crossing the Line ceremony.
  7. The Captain was probably a real captain – Mrs Tredegar says it’s what he ‘would have wished’ indicating that he is used to be a sailor and may have been her husband.

Y4 Maths – Friday 03/07

Good morning Year 4, and Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a good week.

Today, we are looking at using ‘am’ and ‘pm’.

‘am’ is short for ‘ante meridiem’, which means ‘before midday’

‘pm’ is short for ‘post meridiem’, which means ‘after midday’

If you have any questions, let me know in the comments section.

Have a go at today’s challenge. Negative numbers are numbers less than 0. Have a look underneath the challenge for some further explanations.

Times Tables Rock Stars

Hello everyone!

I noticed that only a few people have been using using Times Tables Rock Stars. Remember, it’s a really good way to practise your mental maths, and being able to recall number facts quickly is the easiest way to get better at calculating.

I’ve set up a tournament with Year 6, to give us all a bit of an incentive to use it.

Come on 4B, let’s see how you do!


Y4 Maths – Thursday 02/07

Good morning Year 4! How did you get on with yesterday’s challenge? Don’t forget to let me know in the comments section if you need any help. 🙂

It might be useful to have another look at yesterday’s video.

When you’ve finished today’s challenge, why not having a go at making your own? Perhaps you can make each line add up to 25, or 22, or… whatever you choose!
