BBC Bitesize now has dedicated home learning activities and lessons. There are also TV programmes available on the red button!

You'll find daily lessons for homeschooling in Maths and English for every year group, as well as regular lessons in Science, History, Geography and more. The home schooling lessons have been created with teachers and other educational experts and feature a mix of videos, animations, practice activities, quizzes and games.

Here is a book that has been made to help explain the Corona Virus to children, we hope this helps in offering an explanation to your children. Please download the file if you wish to- it is much easier to view than on the page. 

We have sent home a pack of work for the children to complete whilst school is closed. Please do not do everything all in one go, pace yourselves. Remember to log on to the websites that we provide regularly, as there will be work allocated to these. Usernames and passwords have been provided in your packs, however if you have not being given one then do contact through the email below.

PURPLE MASH - https://www.purplemash.com/sch/asquith

TIMES TABLES ROCKSTAR- https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school 

As the packs state, work will be assigned through these websites so please check daily. We will add more work to our class page for you to download and allocate work through the above websites, should the period of absence extend beyond the Easter holidays.


Both Mr Holt and Miss Dowd can be contacted through the following email; year4teachers@asquithprimary.org When you do email can you type your child's name and their class (4A/4B) as the subject and their class teacher will respond.


We hope you and all our children keep well, and we hope to see soon.

Hello Year 4- Happy Friday! 

With it now coming to the end of the week you should be finishing your hero theme work. We would love to see what you have completed so please send us an email to year4teachers@asquithprimary.org of all your work. 

Today's activities are: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/z63tt39/year-4-and-p5-lessons

English- Using inference to be a reading detective! We have done lots of work on inference over the year and you should be able to have a good go at this. Inference is like being a detective, you have to search for the hidden clues in the text to work out something.  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zf7qmfr

Maths- Friday is challenge day on BBC Bitesize so it is time to do your Maths Challenge! There are 5 challenges to complete, give them all a go. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z966dp3

Topic- If you haven't yet completed all your work around the theme 'heroes', then today is your chance to complete it all. Will you be creating your poster or booklet on Captain Tom Moore? Designing your superhero costume? Creating a comic strip of your heroes adventures? We can't wait to see what you complete! 

Have a wonderful day, despite the rain! Hopefully it will clear up for a little so you can enjoy some time outside.

Good Morning Year 4, 

It looks like it's going to be wet weather all day today, I hope the sun isn't away for long! Have you managed to log onto BBC Bitesize yet to have a look at the daily lessons? Here are the BBC lessons for today: 

Maths- You'll be looking at fractions of amounts. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zjtg47h

English- Revising apostrophes for contraction. An example would be changing can not into can't. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z7hxhbk

Science-  Looking into food chains. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zhnny9q

Have you started looking at the rest of the home learning pack? If so you'll see that this week's theme is heroes. Who would your hero be? This could be someone in your family or friends that is a key worker, for me (Miss D) I would choose my Dad as he's a key worker and has been working so hard during lock-down. It could be someone who has something that is heroic and has become an inspiration to you, such as Greta Thunberg for her work as an environmental activist or Malala Yousafzai for becoming the youngest Nobel Prize laureate for her humanitarian efforts. We would love to hear who inspires you! 

Let us know by emailing to year4teachers@asquithprimary.org

Good morning Year 4! We hope you had a wonderful break over half term and enjoyed all the sunshine- we certainly did! What did you all do last week? We would love to see some photos. 

This week and next week there will be no packs to pick up from school. Instead, we are giving you a home learning plan so you can pick and choose activities yourselves. This can be found on the blog underneath this paragraph, or on the website above this blog. Each week will have a theme. This week's theme is heroes! There are also Maths and English activities we want you to complete- follow the plan.

Click the above link for the plan. 

We would still love to see photos of your work so please send any to year4teachers@asquithprimary.org

Have a great week.

Mental Health Awareness Week

Richard HOLT (holtr) on: Year 4 Blog

It's Mental Health Awareness Week this week guys!

This years theme is 'kindness', which as a year group we have focused on massively, so we know lots about it! It is always important to be kind to one another. Kindness costs you nothing to give away and it makes someone feel incredibly happy, it is the best gift you can give! But it is equally important to be kind to yourself, to praise the things that you do well, to look after yourself and do fun things for you :) 
We would like you all to go out of your way this week to do something kind for someone or even multiple people every day!! It could be a family member, your neighbour, your friend, whoever you like! We would love to know what you have done and maybe you could even take a picture if you made or drawn something- send it to year4teacher@asquithprimary.org 
We would also like you to make sure you are most importantly kind to yourself, not just this week but every single day! How can you be kind to yourself this week? 
We're also going to set ourselves the challenge to do something kind every single day! It should be very easy to do. Today Miss Dowd has been kind to others by making masks for people to wear with the current Corona Virus, she has put her sewing skills to good use and it will help others! Miss D has been kind to herself by treating herself to some new trainers, very exciting. Mr Holt has been kind to others by making tea for his wife and his kids tonight, his wife is a teacher just like us and she's been working hard all day long! I bet she will enjoy coming home to a freshly cooked tea. Mr H has looked after himself by going for a run today, he is making sure he is healthy and active, plus it is something he loves to do. 
We will keep you updated every day what kind acts we do and we can't wait to hear what kind acts you do :) 
Miss D and Mr H

Medium Term Plan


Alder class (Mr Holt) will have PE  every Tuesday and Wednesday.

Beech class (Miss Dowd) will have PE in school every Tuesday and go swimming Wednesday afternoon.  

Our PE kit consists of a white top and blue shorts. Children may want to bring a track suit or joggers for when PE is outdoors. It would also be useful for children to have a water bottle.

PE in the hall is performed in bare feet. Children can wear indoor pumps for those lessons if they prefer.



Homework is set on Fridays and is due in the following Wednesday. There will be spellings set as part of homework and those tests will take place on the following Friday.



Children should have their planners every day in school. They are a great way of communicating. We will collect planners in on Fridays and sign them (adding any comments if needed), then planners should be signed by parents over the weekend.
