What would you like to achieve?
What are you looking forward to?
Is there anything that you would like to improve?

I have really enjoyed reading Rat Island with you all. It was an extremely exciting story. Now today I would like you to imagine that you are Jimmy Tarbottom living on Rat Island. Imagine how Jimmy must have felt when he saw Tam. 

Draw a picture of the meeting of Jimmy and Tam. Add what they say and what they are thinking to your picture.

Today is our final day of Year 4! Hasn't it been a glorious year?!

We want you to come up with your own recipe for 'An Amazing Year'.

Think about the different components that make each year at Grove so special and how much of it you need. Reflect on what has made your other years so brilliant to help you. 

Send us your recipes on J2E5 or through the class email.

Good morning Year 4! 

Remember that today, each of the Year 4 classes will be having a celebration assembly with their class. This will be on Teams. These are the times:

4 Yellow & 4 Red: 1:30 - 2:00pm

Complete a times table assessment and then pratice the times tables that you are not as confident with.

Main Lesson:

You will have your online lesson at 11:30am today. After that, complete the activity on MyMaths about negative numbers. You have already completed this lesson before but we would like you to have another go today after the learning.



To continue with our use of expanded noun phrases and description this week, we want you to go on a hunt around your house for different items.

Once you have collected up some different items, we want you to write your own riddles to describe them so that we can try to guess what you have found.

Remember, when you write a riddle, you need to give descriptive clues, but don’t give away the answer!



Read Rat Island Chapter 8 Tarbottom's Souvenir independently.

Clarify the following words, you can look in an online dictionary

: cannonball, faint headed, tinder box, flint,


Why did Tam want to rest on the beach? Why did the Captain think that this was not a good idea? 2d

How does the Captain say they must protect themselves from the rats? Why? 2b
How do you think Tam felt when he couldn’t light the fire? 2d

Daily Challenge:

Today, you are all going to become directors of your own autobiographical film of the year. 

Which key events from your time in Year 4 would you use for your film? Why have you chosen them? 

Are there any special items from throughout the year that you would use as props? For example, items from trips/things that you have used in the classroom.

Which key characters are going to be included in your film? 


Create a video of you imagining that you are holding a press conference about the film. In the video, we want you to share some of the key details and explain why you have chosen them. If you can't make a video, you could write a script of what you would say or draw some of the different things that you would include.

In the main lesson, we will be looking at Roman Numerals again. After you have completed your 5-a-day, have a go as this game to practice them before the lesson.




Yesterday you learnt about using expanded noun phrases so today, we’re going to put that learning into practice.

How have you grown this year? I have grown in confidence. I have grown stronger. I have grown in bravery.
Can you give your own examples of this? 

Draw a picture of yourself at the start of the year and another picture of yourself at the end of the year.

Be creative: what are your super powers? Do you have magic maths or fabulous fractions?

What has changed over the year?

You can create this as a poster on paper or create it in J2e5. Can you add pictures of things that reflect what you have done this year?

Can you complete the 5 exercises? Why not ask the people that live with you to try them too! Ask them to give you some feedback on whether they think your exercise regime will be fit for your super hero! Take pictures and save them on J2E, we love seeing your work!
