The answer to why the chewing gum crossed the road is that it was stuck to the chicken's leg!  I hope you are all groaning at how bad that joke is!


Fun fact: A rainbow is in fact a full circle of light. However, due to most people viewing a rainbow on the ground we only see a semi-circle or arc of the rainbow.

Have a fantastic day,

Year 4 team

Today's lessons are on the document below, but we would also like you to think of others this week. What kind thing could you do for someone today? It could be something as simple as a hug or more complex like unexpectedly helping make dinner.

Good Morning, Year 4!


Once again, you have done well! We have seen so many wonderful photos of fact files. Today is the final version of those so sharpen those pencils and flex your fingers in preparation for your neatest work!


The other task today is to choose from your boredom buster jar. Having looked at the weather forecast, let's hope it is something you can do inside. Technically, there should be no putting back and choosing another piece of paper but if it is raining, I think we could get away with putting that task back if it is an outdoor one! Otherwise, the first activity you pick is the one you do. No cheating! Have fun!


Answer to the riddle is a green house is made from glass!


Fun fact: your mouth produces about one litre of saliva a day!



Remember to dream big and you will go far in life!

Answer to the riddle is a sponge - it is full of holes yet still holds water.
