Welcome back to school everyone! We are delighted to have so many of you back, but also know that from time to time there will be some of you who will have to stay at home to keep everyone safe. For this reason, home learning will now be added for you on a weekly basis, so that if you have to be off you can still keep up with your classmates.
Lesson ideas and learning links will be all be uploaded for the week at the same time, then it is up to you how and when to work through them. There should be enough for you to do some reading and maths everyday, plus some writing and topic work to complete throughout the week.
If you have any questions or there is anything you are struggling to access, please email the Year 4 team at Y4@mostonlane.manchester.sch.uk .
Keep up all the hard work and have fun!
Please keep emailing us your fantastic work. We'd love to see what you are doing at home.

Well done to everyone who entered the competition this week. Year 4 has also done some amazing artwork. Have a look at these amazing portraits!
Can you believe this is the last week of our school year? And what a strange one it has been! You have all done such a great job and we are so proud of you all.
This week, the home learning will be slightly different as we won’t be posting work for you every day. Instead, we have set some work for you to complete throughout the week.
First, let’s start the week with some happy news.
Choose a book from Audible and listen to it for about 20-30 minutes each day. Summarise the story to your adult after reading and tell them what you like and don’t like about the story. Finally, on Friday you can complete this book review.
This week, your maths work will be on Mymaths.com. You need to log in with the school login and then click on ‘my portal login’ and enter your personal login details. You will find a series of tasks to complete and you can work on these each day.
This is the last week of our school art competition. This week, the theme is ‘creative writing’. You will learn about a type of art called ‘Surrealism’ and how dreams can often inspire us. Your task will be to write a narrative about the best dream you’ve ever had and create your own dream jar. Click here to download the PowerPoint and complete the activities.
There are still some amazing prizes to win! To enter the competition, you will need to send your writing work as well as your artwork. Each participant will receive a certificate. Good luck!
We are going to use this week to reflect on the year. We wish we could have spent longer together but we can’t wait to see you after the summer holidays. The activities are all listed below, feel free to choose which day you want to complete each one. You can still email these in to us if you’d like to share your work. We would still love to see them!
- My favourite memories from this year - reflect on your friends, memories and activities from your time in Year 4.
- Looking forward to next year - think about what you might like to improve or try in Year 5.
- Lockdown memories 2020 - fill the jar by writing a list of all your favourite memories from your time spent at home during lockdown. Colour it in when you’re done!
- My inner and outer self - follow the instructions to draw and colour your inner and outer self. Half of you will look as normal and half will be filled with things you love. Click here and here for inspiration.
- End the week with the Seven Days of Kindness calendar - can you think of all the kind things you have done for yourself or somebody else this week?

Have a wonderful summer everyone! We are sad that we can’t hug you goodbye, but this year will definitely be one to remember. Well done for going over and above during these strange times and doing the best you could. You are true Moston Lane superstars and we are super proud of you.
Lots of love,
