Happy Tuesday Year 4,
I hope you all had a super Monday. I was busy helping to get all the displays in the hall and corridors ready for September. School is looking amazing now. I can't wait for you all to see it.
Only one week left after this one before the summer break and then after that we will all be back together. It will be great to see each classroom filled with children again.
Have a great day and I will speak to you tomorrow.
Good Morning 4A,
After today, we have 8 more schools days (yes, I have a little countdown ) so let's work hard for these next few days then we will have a long break before September. I have been in the green room today with the key worker children, then in the afternoon I did some doorstep visits. After school, I had a zoom conference call with my family in glasgow and London. It is unlikely that my family will be going abroad in the summer holidays this year but we are planning to stay in London for a week to see my family. We may also drive up to glasgow to see my other side of the family. Do you have any plans for your summer break?
Speak to you soon,

We have been asked to practise place value before we return to school in September. Some of you are really good at Place Value but it is always good to practise your skills. Unfortunately, there are no videos available that link with place value. But I have added a reminder below to get you going.
The first part I want you to practice is rounding to the nearest ten.
What digit do we look at when rounding to the nearest ten? We look at the ones column. If the digit in the ones column is 5 or more, we round up to the nearest 10. If the digit in the ones column is less than 5, we round down to the nearest 10.
What do we mean by rounding to the nearest 10? You need to round the number to the nearest multiple of 10 e.g. 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100 and so on.
67 to the nearest ten is 70 as the digit in the ones column is 7 so therefore, we round up to the nearest multiple of 10.
You need to be able to round 4 digit numbers to the nearest 10 in Year 4.
4,563 to the nearest 10 would be 4,560.
Here is a reading comprehension based on the layers of the ocean.
Writing Task Day 2
As a part of his magical adventures, Norman Messenger has explored lots of different parts of the island Spooky Dark Mountains is one of the areas he has discovered. You can read about the other mountains he has discovered by reading the Mountains of Neverbelieve Sheet.
Task – As Norman Messenger’s new apprentice, you are going to explore the Island yourself and will come across a magical mountain of your choice. We are going to plan the mountain today, then we will write about it tomorrow. Have a look at the Ideas for a new mountain sheet to get some ideas to help you.
Once you have thought about your ideas, fill out the Discovering a new mountain planning sheet. I have included an example plan to help you.
