Children should aim to complete at least four sessions of work per day; ideally, each session should be from a different subject area. Please send pictures or screenshots of any complete work to your teacher via Dojo so we can continue to support your learning.

 

Maths

The children need to be secure in their knowledge of all four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division); they should be able to answer arithmetic style questions both rapidly and accurately and then apply this knowledge to solve reasoning problems. In school, we normally do maths from 11:10 – 12:15, then arithmetic from 12:15-12:45

Session 1:  identifying angles and compare and order angles.

Session 5:  Challenge day!  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z9pq4xs

Starter:

 

 

Arithmetic:

Children need to be able to solve these calculations accurately and quickly. In class I would set a 6 minute timer for the children to complete this in their book, we would then go through them together.

Session 1:

5667÷10    435÷100   43.5÷10  6789÷100   45×10  6.7×100  5.67 x 10    378÷4   904÷5

Session 2:

546×7     857 x 6     7 x 400      9 x 600    3600÷60 =       7200÷ ___ = 9       5/7 of 350

4.67 + 13.2       708.9 + 57.36

Session 3:

Prove if these are always, sometimes or never true. Give at least 6 examples to back up your answer

  1. Odd number x odd number = even number
  2. Odd number ÷ even number = odd number
  3. Even number – odd number – odd number = odd number

Session 4:

 

 

Session 5:

 

 

 

Reading:

In order to be successful Year Four readers, children must be able to read texts accurately and fluently, making sense of what they have read and using all of this to answer comprehension questions. The main way this can be achieved at home is through regular reading. Try and choose books that interest your child and encourage them to think about the meaning of what they have read. We have also put together a comprehension for each day which is linked below. Allow your children approximately 5 minutes to read the text and the 15 minutes to answer the questions. When they have finished, discuss their answers with them. In school, we do reading from 10:20-10:50

Day 1: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z43gp4j

Day 2: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z2ycf82

Day 3: Research your favourite author and create a poster or information leaflet on them.

Day 4: Enjoy reading a book. Choose somewhere unusual to read it.

Day 5:  Chose a book that you have read and write a book review.

 

 

Handwriting

Please complete a handwriting activity every day for 20 minutes. In school we would do handwriting after lunch from 1:40-2:00.

Please check that the letters are all sat on the line and are all the correct size. If your child joins their handwriting, please make sure that the joins are correct and the word can easily be read. Please don’t let them move on to the next word until they can do the one they are on.

Choose 10 words from either of these sheets every day and write them out 10 times each.

You may want to choose words that you find hard to spell and use this as a spelling activity.
