Congratulations on making it to the end of another half term! And especially well done for completing a whole half term of home learning. We keep saying it but you really do impress us with your resilience and hard work.
It has been lovely to hear some of your suggestions for the Kindness Cup. There is still time for you to send in your nominations today.
Here is today's wellbing activity.
Check back here later for an update on Artburst. We have been having some exciting discussions about how we can try and finish our performance even though we aren't at school.
English - Writing
How was the editing?
It is a difficult skill to develop but one you have all worked hard to develop over your time in Year 4.
Today’s task is to publish your writing.
We want you to send in your completed writing either on Purple Mash or via email. As it is half term next week, you can have this as a half term project but please make sure it is sent in to us by the 31st May at the latest.
If you would like to, you can add illustrations (pictures) to your story.

Today we reach the end of the first chapter of Ivan the Terrible. Let's see what happens.
He beamed and gave another of his smart bows. There was a pause. Then Mrs Blaizely glanced at me enquiringly. “Boris?”
I took a deep breath. “I am delighted to be here,” I pretended to translate for Ivan. “I think this school looks very nice. And everyone looks very kind and friendly. I really hope I’ll settle in soon and make a whole load of new friends.”
“That’s lovely,” said Mrs Blaizely. She turned to Ivan. “And I’m sure everyone in this hall wants to join me in wishing you well and hoping you feel at home as soon as possible.”
Ivan turned to me. “What did she say?”
I wasn’t going to risk him coming out with another barrage of insults. So I looked Ivan in the eye and told him, “She said, “Watch your fat tongue, New Boy, or I’ll break off your arm and bash you with the soggy end.””
I really hoped he’d look at Mrs Blaizely with a new respect. But he just grinned and walked down the steps from the stage.
Feeling a bit of a wally, I followed him.
End of Assembly.
And thank heaven for that.
Today, we're going to continue applying our maths knowledge to a wider range of problems.
You might need to use different operations to help with these questions.
Try to give them all a go, you will find that they get more challenging as they go on.
The artist Banksy recently created this new piece of art.
What do you think of it?
What message do you think it is trying to tell people?
Stay safe, carry on being kind to yourself and other people and find time to relax.
