LO: To multiply 2-digit numbers with renaming

In maths today, we are going to be multiplying 2-digit numbers with renaming. This is building on last weeks lessons, so please have a look at those beforehand if you didn't do them!

Have a look at the in-focus question. How do you think you could work it out? As you would usually do this in your pairs, see if you can talk to an adult or an older sibling about your thoughts. Use the empty box to explain your thoughts.

Next, have a look at the guided practice. Can you work out how those answers were gained? Have a go at working them out yourselves to see if your method is correct.

Finally, have a go at the worksheet provided - it is 2 sheets, the minimum expectation is one sheet, but just like in class, try and have a go at the second one too!


This week, we are going to be reading the book ‘The curious case of Dr Salamander’.

Today, you are going to read chapter 1 and then complete the online quiz. I will be able to see if you have done this activity!

You each have your own log in which I will be sending to your adults to give to you. I will send it via marvellous me – if it doesn’t come through please email me at year4@leigh.covmat.org and I will send it to you there!

You can choose to do the quiz online or print off the quiz and do it on paper. If you have the choice of both, I would rather then quiz be done online.

LO: To describe a character

Have another listen to the narrative verse, the Bogeymen and the Trolls next door. Some very powerful words were used in this. Can you write each of these words into your own sentences?

Fateful (Very important, often in a disastrous way) Example: It was a fateful day when the princess pricked her finger, and would now sleep for 100 years!

Indignant (annoyed, outraged) Example: I felt very indignant at being blamed for the broken vase!

Desolate (bleak and depressing) Example: The land was a desolate place, with not a tree in sight.

Destination (Place of arrival, journey’s end) Example: You have reached your destination.


Below is an outline of Dave the Troll. How would others describe him? Think of some good adjectives that Fred the Bogeyman would use to describe him and place those words outside of his body.

How would Dave describe himself? Think of some good adjectives that he would use and place those inside of his body.

When done, send this to me for me to have a look at your wonderful work.

History (send in)

In History this half term, we are looking at Britain's ‘first’ empire. In todays lesson, we are going to be looking at how it was established in the Americas and in Africa. Please look through the slides attached below. Some of the words may be confusing and you may have to ask someone around you for some help understanding them. After this, complete the worksheet with what you think the people onboard the ships did.


In music we will be looking at percussion this half term. What is percussion you ask? Time to find out! Don’t worry, you don’t need any musical instruments to do this, just a couple of things from around your house!
