Was Alfred so Great?


welcome back to school year 4! I was so impressed with all of the homelearning that the children got up to over the Easter break. The Saxon houses made out of wood and straw were amazing. Such detail went into them even down to little fires and pots inside them.

I can see that some children have already started to research our new topic about King Alfred – Was Alfred so Great? We will be investigating why King Alfred was labelled great and if we agree with it. We have attached our new home learning pyramid to give the children some ideas of what they could learn and how below:

Bloom’s HL – Was Alfred so Great

In maths this week we have been focusing on learning how to tell the time, which is a very important skill. The children’s home learning this week focuses on time telling and the more they practise the easier it will be for them.

On abacus and Mymaths this week we have designated time activities to help the children practise this skill.


In music this term we are now learning how to play the guitar and will again be having a concert at the end of the summer term. The children are very excited!

We look forward to posting some more pictures of the children’s learning at school soon.

Thank you,

The year 4 team
