Wilstead Primary School Learning for Life


Year 4 (Hornets)

Hello Year 4!


This week is the final week of the term!  While it will be a little different to normal, I have tried to include some of the fun activities that we would have been doing at school into your home learning.  I hope that you enjoy them!


This has been a strange couple of months, and you have done a great job of persevering with your learning at home, but we really hope that we can see you in school again soon.  We're crossing our fingers that everything remains on the right track so that everyone can come back in September.  Don't forget to contact me one last time so that I can mark you off on our contact register, and remember that I am here to help if you need me.  Just email me at


Keep smiling, and stay safe.  We are so proud of you all for working so hard.


Mrs Webb (and Mr Fish)

Ran out of reading books?

You can find a HUGE range of reading books for children aged 3-11 on this website - many the same as we use at school. These are staged to make it easier to choose the correct level, and all are free. All you have to do is set up a parent log in and browse away! 


Bedford libraries are also giving access to a range of online books and audios books through their website.  If you have a library card you are able to use this to access them or you can make an account online.  See -

Quizzing from home guidance for parents

We don’t usually encourage quizzing at home as it can affect test validity, which can result in inconsistent or unrepresentative reading ages. However, due to these exceptional circumstances, you may wish to consider allowing students to quiz at home for a limited period.


This link will take you to our AR portal (which is the same as we use at school):


Ensure that the books you read are:

  • AR quizzed – you can use the Accelerated Reader Bookfinder website to search for a book and see if a quiz is available.
  • Appropriate for the student’s level of ability – more information can be found here.

Wilstead woods


We had a wonderful time den building in the Wilstead woods for our 'Pom pom jar' reward last half term!  It was such a pleasure to be out and about in the natural world.

Robot Workshop

P-Bone Performance


Over the course of this term, Hornets have been working hard with Mr Bottone to learn the trombone!  We had a wonderful time on Thursday 28th November performing for our family and friends, and are so proud of how much we have learned.


If your child is interested in continuing their learning of the trombone, or another instrument, please talk to Mrs Webb about arranging private or group lessons.
