Year 4

Week beginning: Monday 30th March


Welcome to Year 4 



Welcome to Year 4's class page, Happy new year, welcome to the 20's. We look forward to a gross and disgusting term. 

Home learning


Hi Year 4. 


Below is your work for the upcoming week, I have also uploaded two new exciting websites, one is Harry potter based in which you have to complete Maths and creative challenging to solve the mystery and the other is from the creative designers behind Disney involving imagineering, the process of creative thinking and engineering. 


This week in English we will be creative poems about our current daily life, but remember this is not only home schooling but home learning so if you are doing other activities at home like learning the time, or learning about life cycles and care for plants, writing a story or helping to make dinner this is all home learning, perhaps you want to share some of these on your blogs on PurpleMash so we can see and celebrate them. 


Just a note if writing on PurpleMash a few parents have said that the website crashes and the children lose their work so might be an idea to write it on Word and copy across when done. 


Please send any of your amazing work and any questions to 


Stay safe, we miss you all lots 


Love Mrs Teagle and Miss Sawdon

The sun is shining

For March it’s pretty hot.

Mum said ‘Have you got sunscreen on?”

“whoops I forgot”


The birds are out, flying high.

It’s the first time,

I’ve seen dad without his tie.

For we’re all at home.


It’s not Christmas or new year.

But the shops are closed.

And my friends are nowhere near.


One walk a day,

That’s what the man in a black suit said.

2 metres apart, don’t get in his way.

It might seem scary that we don’t know what’s ahead.


Take a breath, step outside

Spot the small works of art,

That guide our walk

I spy a  rainbow,

There’s even one made of chalk.


Just Stay home, stay safe, just stay.

The heroes are hard at work.

Working for a bright new day.  


When this is over,

School will be back

Children will be together

And that’s the end of that.

Today we are going to be thinking about the rhyme scheme of our poem.


Giving yourself two minutes per word, how many rhyming words can you think of for these words.

- sun 

- day

The pattern may go  A, B, A, B. or if may be an A,A,B,B.

Have a go at the link of BBC Bitesize.


Can you fill in the gaps for this poem with a pattern of A, B,A,B


The sun is shining, oh so bright.

The sky is clear, oh so ____.

There won’t be a single cloud in the sky _____


What about this pattern of A,A,B,B

Can you make up the B,B part?


The sun is shining, oh so bright.

There won’t be a cloud in the sky ____


Look at your notes from yesterday, try to sequence them into an order. Every line in your poem doesn’t have to rhyme, however I would like for you to challenge yourself for at least half of your poem to include rhyming couplets.


Once you’ve created the skeleton sequence for your poem, it’s time to start thinking about the rhyming parts.


Choosing either A,B,A,B or A,A,B,B create the first verse of your poem about your day at home, to do this you will need to look at your ending words, and see if you can find a synonyms for them which rhymes with either the end of your next sequence or the one after.


If you’re really struggling you can start by using a sequence or A,B,A.


As the clock struck,

It was time to get up,

Late for school, that was just my luck
