Friday 3rd July

Happy Friday Class Four!

I hope you're having a good week so far, we are almost at the weekend! The sun is shining in school so hopefully it will be a good day.

I had a lovely evening yesterday, I met up with a very special person and their dog.... Mrs Munday and Ruby! I stopped at Mrs Munday's on my way home and we had a really lovely walk with Ruby around the park where she lives. Ruby was a good girl, still very hyper but listening to Mrs Munday's commands. We had a really nice catch up as I haven't seen her for a little while. She is still missing school and sends her love to you all.

As it's Friday, I'm hoping that lots of you will email me today so I can see some of your lovely home learning and hear what you've been getting up to. Please can you send me 2 pieces of work of your choice (or of course more if you'd like smiley). If you had a go at the SPAG challenge, please send it and I will forward it to Mrs Kimble, and if you have made a 'Guess the Homophone' game which we could use next week then please send that across as well.

Have a great day and a fantastic weekend, love Miss Olver x

Here is a message from Mrs Soley:

Welcome to another Friday morning everyone,

I hope you are all well and have enjoyed your home learning this week. 

I have had a very exciting week as my grandson, Jacob, took his first steps a few days ago.  He had been walking with his mummy where she was holding him by two hands then one.  She let go and he kept walking for five steps.  We couldn’t help shouting, as it was completely unexpected.  He had a big smile on his face so hopefully he knew how great it was.  When he was at my house yesterday, we took him for a walk around the garden and out to the garage, he kept going all the way and stopped to point at various cars in the road.  He likes cars and vans; we wait to see if he likes buses and trains.  Up to the point where he took his first steps, he had just stood still and then let himself down to crawl around.

My other photo shows a certain cheeky little person who had helped himself to a packet of cheesy biscuits, which were in the cupboard at his house.  He had waited until his mummy had gone to wash her hands in the bathroom and then got to work.  I think, perhaps, mummy needs to either put those opened packets on a higher shelf or put them in a box.  You should know, he had already had his breakfast but the boy is an eating machine.  I suppose it will only get worse as he moves around more and burns up more energy. 

This weekend is my daughter’s birthday and she has invited us to lunch in her garden.  We’re hoping for good weather so that we can enjoy sitting outside. 

I hope you all have a good weekend with your families. 

Best wishes.

Mrs Soley xx


It is Friday today which means worded problems day. The children who are in school at the moment have helped to find some of the facts in the questions, so I hope you find them interesting. Think carefully about which operation and method is needed and remember: worded problems need a worded answer! I've attached my workings and answers so you can have a look if you get stuck and check your work.


Today I would like you to work on your reading comprehension skills. Today's text comes from a Horrible Science book called Ugly Bugs. I know you like these books so hopefully you will find it really interesting. Read through the text and then answer the questions carefully. I've attached the answers so you can check your work.


Sports Dave has put up a new skills video and some more weekly challenges on his page – work through these today. To get to his page, go to the News section of the website and then choose the Sport and Keeping Active Home Learning page.


Spellings and Reading

Today is Friday, which means it is spelling test day! As always you have two choices:

  1. Watch the video of me reading the spelling sentences for your test. Remember that you can pause it and replay it as many times as you like.
  2. Ask an adult to read the sentences aloud for you as you write them down.

If an adult is free, then you could ask them if they would very kindly mark your sentences for you. If not, then use the document below to mark them yourself. Good luck!

Also remember to do some independent reading of a book of your choice.
