Year 4

Hello Year 4. I will update this regularly to direct you to your work for the day. 

1st April:



Purple Mash - Work - Groups - Year 4 Red. 


Guided Reading: 

Purple Mash - Work - Groups - Year 4 Red. 



Purple Mash - 2Do. 


I am available online to help you between 9am and 4pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. 

Outside of these hours I will aim to check my emails in case you need me, but please allow a longer response time. 

If you desperately need help on a Wednesday, I cannot guarantee I'll see your email. Please phone the school and they will get in touch with me. 

Year 4 Saint: St Don Bosco.



Pray with Pope Francis: At this time it is important that we still find time to pray both by ourselves but also with our brothers and sisters throughout the world. Today at 11:00 on the Solemnity of the Annunciation, Pope Francis has asked that we pray our family prayer, the Our Father, together with him. Details about this can be found here

How do I learn from home?


  • Keep to a routine.
  • See the instructions on how to use Purple Mash below.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the class page to see a video walkthrough on Purple Mash.


I have provided an extended project (see below - 'Chocolate Project') as well as a Maths grid which will provide regular work (for if I have not given, or cannot give, work in class).  


However, I will be posting regular tasks on Purple Mash. Your child's log in is taped to the inside of their Reading Diary. You will also find my email address here, which can be used to send me any photos of work. If your child loses their log in, please email me and I will endeavour to send this information to you. 


To find your work on Purple Mash, please see the instructions below:

  • Go to
  • Your work will appear in two places: '2Dos' and 'work'. Look at the top of the screen to find these buttons. 


  • These are games or tasks you can complete online. 
  • Click the red '2Dos' button at the top of the screen, then click on the task I have given to you. 


  • This is other work that I have sent to you. It might be instruction from me, a worksheet, or a picture. 
  • You can do this on a computer and email your work to me, or you can work on paper and email me a picture of your work.
  • Your work will be either in 'Class -> Year 4' or 'Groups -> Year 4 red/blue'. 
  • In your groups folder, I have created a second folder where I will put modelled work for you to use. These are 'what a good one looks like'. 


  • If I set you a 2Do, you will see a little red dot at the top of the screen. 
  • If I send you a comment, you will also see a red dot at the top of the screen. 
  • Click the bell button to see your alerts. 
  • It's important to remember to check your yellow 'work' button every day, because you won't get an alert when I put work in here. 

Helpful homework hints:



  • Maths

Times tables need to be practised consistently throughout the year. Below are some websites to support you with this.

This website has a nice friendly breakdown of what the new times tables check means. You can also sign up for a free resource pack which includes some great paper based activities. 

Here's a link to the government website and their full framework on the checks in June. 


Below are some resources to support you at home. 



PE days for this year will be Tuesday (swimming until Easter) and Wednesday.

Welcome to Year 4! 


I've set an extended project for you to work on from home. Please see 'Chocolate Project', below. This is also on Purple Mash. Please choose one subject task to work on a week. Work your way through the subjects for the time we are off school.


Please check back regularly for updates.
