Every Monday to Thursday you can watch and listen to your maths lesson and then answer the questions from the worksheets. You can click on the worksheets to view them and print them out, or you can write your answers on a piece of paper. Fridays are a bit different. Our maths scheme, the White Rose Maths Hub, has combined with the BBC to create a Friday maths challenge. Challenges 1 - 5 are recommended for Year 4. 


Have a healthy lunch and try to get some fresh air. Now is a great time to try another one of Mr Derbyshire's Active Breaks!

Kindness calendar

Earlham is a kindness school. As a Kindness School, we place kindness and empathy among students at the centre of our school. We believe a society in which its members show mutual respect and tolerance is one that grows ever stronger. We also believe that teaching values of kindness and empathy is a vital part of childhood education, especially at this very difficult time.

The Kindness School Foundation, of which we are a member, has developed a 'kindness calendar' with activities we can all do to help others as well as support our own wellbeing. Click the picture to see the full calendar
