The Ickabog is the latest story written by J.K Rowling. It will be published for free on the website below, in instalments, over the next seven weeks, a chapter (or two, or three), at a time. What’s even better is that you are invited to help illustrate the book - I thought about entering myself but I’m not aged between 7 and 12 - so it’s down to you. 📖 ✏️ 

HAPPY HALF TERM smiley
 

This week is half term so check our activity of the day folder for some fun activities for you to try at home. We are still in work this week so some of you will be getting phone calls from us, which we look forward to very much. Enjoy the sunshine but make sure you read the sun safety guide. Keep staying safe and have fun!

Happy Good Friday 🐣

 

Hope you all have a lovely Easter, enjoy the sunshine ☀️ stay safe and don’t eat too much chocolate cheeky

 

It was lovely speaking to some of you today and hearing about all the wonderful things you have been up to (baking muffins and biscuits, playing football, shaving your hair 🤭 splashing in the paddling pool, reading, times tables, learning Greek).
I know some of you may be struggling a little, missing school a little and missing your friends but you are all doing the best you can and you are safe and that is the main thing. So keep going and hopefully we’ll all be back together soon enough. 

 

Love the Year 4 team xxx

Hi Year 4, 

Well done to all of the children who have completed work online so far. I know you might be experiencing difficulties logging on to some of our websites to help with your learning, but remember not all learning needs to be done online. 
 

Below, are some activities you can do at home, where you can learn and have fun smiley
 

Stay safe and have fun!
