Year 4 home learning- 06.07.20

Hello Year 4,

Continuing with our theme of ‘mythological creatures,’ I would like you to read chapters 3 and 4 of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and complete the activities around that. This is our last week of mythological creatures and I hope you’ve found it as interesting as I do!

Hello Year 4,

Continuing with our theme of ‘mythological creatures,’ I would like you to read chapter 2 of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. This week’s mythological creature is the Basilisk. Some of you may know of the Basilisk already if you have read/watched the second Harry Potter novel/movie. I hope you are all well and staying safe. It is lovely to hear from some of you via email/letters. Keep up the great work!

The Walk of Life – St James  

“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

As the quote suggests, we all have to live with disappointments and setbacks in life, and the last few months have certainly been testing for everybody connected with St James.

However, nothing can stop us looking to the future with hope and optimism; some day soon, this will all be a thing of the past that we can move on from and hope for better things ahead.

As the video shows, the beauty of nature and the world around us, hasn’t changed during lock-down. We are blessed with so many amazing places to visit in the North East, and this time away from school has given us more opportunities to visit them more often.

Enjoy and stay safe.

Hello Year 4,

Continuing with our theme of ‘mythological creatures,’ I have decided to introduce you to (if you haven’t read it already!) the first Harry Potter novel- ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone.’ The Harry Potter series are some of my favourite books due to the exciting narrative and range of mythological creatures you are introduced to throughout the stories. This week’s mythological creature is the phoenix. Each week we will continue with a new chapter of the book and look at a different mythological creature. By the end of the summer term, you will all be experts! Any work you would like me to see, email to

Hello Year 4,

Over the next few weeks we will be focusing on the theme ‘mythological creatures,’ starting with dragons. I thought it would be nice to incorporate a bit of media into our work this week, which is why our English is centred around a short movie called ‘Dragonslayer.’ I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did and, if possible, it may also be nice to watch some other dragon-related movies such as ‘How to train your dragon.’

Hope you are well and missing you all so very much!

Year 4 home learning- 08.06.20

Hello Year 4,

As you probably all know, I am missing you very much and would do anything to have us back in the classroom together for lots of laughter and learning! At the moment, Year 4 is not a year group that can return to school but I hope you are all still working hard and having lots of fun at home. Remember, if you find yourself stuck on a piece of work, are feeling a little bit low or simply want to have a chat, I am always at the other end of an email address! Thank you to anyone who has emailed over the past few weeks or written a letter. I can honestly say that nothing has made me smile more! I love hearing what you’ve been up to and it really brightens up my day.

This week I thought we could look at Black History Month. Some of you may have heard of Black History Month in previous learning or on the news. It is really important to remember that in the past, and even now, not everyone is treated the way they are supposed to be, and Black History Month is a way for us to start exploring that. Remember any photos of your learning can be sent through the homework tab on the school website or via

Missing you all!!

Year 4 home learning- 1st June

Hello Year 4,

I hope you had a lovely half term break in this beautiful weather with your families. I definitely made the most of it with my family and we did lots of countryside walking and exploring. This inspired me for this week’s learning topic… Nature Explorers. With another week of wonderful weather forecast, I would love for you to spend time outdoors (following government guidelines) and look at everything our wonderful world has to offer. Go on bug hunts, nature trails, build a den or simply gaze at the night sky and see what you can spot. I have added work related to ‘nature’ but if you find the great outdoors inspires you in any other way then I would love to see your photos!

Amulets, bridges and creative writing!

Lewis in, Year 4, has been working hard these last few weeks and produced some incredible pieces of work! It is lovely to see how in-depth he has gotten with his Viking project and even made a amulet and figurehead out of clay. But check out his Lego bridge design and creative writing! We can’t work out whether we have a budding historian, engineer or author!

Hi year 4,

I hope you are all well and keeping up the great work at home! Last week was the end of our Anglo-saxon/Viking topic and I saw some wonderful work from you all. The projects and art work you have been creating is fantastic and I am incredibly impressed!

This week I thought we could focus on healthy eating. It is so easy when we are stuck at home to be tempted eat lots of chocolate and crisps (I am very guilty of this!) however, it is still important that we try and have balanced meals and include lots of fruit and vegetables in our diets. And don’t forget about exercise! Eating well and keeping fit is not only great for our bodies, but it is also great for our minds!

I am missing you all greatly but I have loved reading and receiving your emails and work. Keep on making me proud year 4, you are all stars!
