Year 4

Sefton Local Education Authority  have a “Pupil Views of the Return to School” survey running in order to help schools plan for pupils' transition back to school.  Please follow the link below to complete the survey with your child.


Click on the link to access the ASE Science Remote Learning resources hub. Members of the ASE Primary Science community have been working together to write lessons for primary-aged pupils which are designed to be directly accessible to children and parents at home. These curriculum-led resources have been specifically designed to help deliver a structured series of topic-based primary science lessons in a home environment.

Home Learning Support 


Each Monday a timetable will be given for the week with suggested year group specific activities to complete each day. The activities are designed to consolidate the aspects of the Year 4 curriculum we have already covered, which means the children should be able to access independently.  Click on the PDF document(s) above to access all of the information you need.  There are also helpful links below that will take you to different sites or pages of the website. 


Please do not feel under any pressure to complete all activities set for each day, you need to find a routine that suits the needs of your family.  We cannot stress enough the importance of daily reading.  At the moment, there are lots of online Education platforms (especially on Youtube) that are offering lessons the children can complete independently.   

Links will still be on the main home learning page of the website to allow you access to a wide range of other home learning opportunities including art, music, science, history, geography, creative writing, handwriting and languages.   There are also some great reading/author links on this page. 


If you have any urgent concerns please email us: The inbox will be checked each school day and we will aim to respond within 24 hours 

BBC Bitesize

From 20 April, you’ll be able to access daily lessons in English and Maths, as well as other core subjects, in an expanded version of the BBC website and also on special programmes broadcast on BBC iPlayer and BBC Red Button.


New Maths and English lessons will be available every day for all ages.  The content of these lessons will be backed up by videos, practice tests, educational games and articles. Regular lessons on other subjects, including science, will also be available. Families can get advice on home-schooling and the Bitesize website will also have guides for pupils with SEN (special educational needs).


Lessons On Screen

BBC iPlayer and the Red Button service will host Bitesize Daily. These are six different 20 minute shows, each designed to target a specific age group, from ages five to 14, and for pupils throughout the UK. Experts and teachers will be involved, covering what should be learned that day for the different year groups and key stages. Maths, Science and English will be covered in dedicated programmes, and other subjects such as History, Geography, Music and Art will also be covered.
