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.  

 

Year 4 learning project

 

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 

Please complete the home learning sessions on the White Rose website focussing on Fractions There are videos to support each lesson, activities to complete and the answers to check when you have completed them.

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: 

4304 + ___ = 7698       111= 8003 - _____    5572 + 4887 =           6 x 6 x 5      704÷3 

4/6 of 3000     563 x 8    706 x 6       567 ÷ 100    34.6 x 10  

Session 2: 

5454 – 3996 =         906 - ____ = 257     3562 = _____ - 765      4390 = 6720 -_______ 

£67.21 - £35.90 =            9/12 of 108      7 x ____ = 42     7 x ____ = 420     4900 ÷ ____ = 7 

Session 3: 

Find the difference between these numbers: 

  1.  579 and 297 
  1. 5002 and 412 
  1. 5228 and 4773 
  1. 8625 and 3044 
  1. 7.43 and 1.89 
  1. £42.40 and £69.50  

Session 4:   

46 x 7      83 x 5     39 x 8     235 x 6    704 x 4    834x9   8x9x6   3x4x3    9x0x7  

 

Session 5: 

Round these numbers to the nearest 10: 

35       41        97      587       331    3298 

Round these numbers to the nearest 100: 

112    413    593   557   482    5592  1178  

Round these numbers to the nearest 1000: 

1122  2233  3344  4455  5566  6677  7788  8899 

 

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

Write a character description of the main character in the story from our reading this week. 

Write a diary entry for a day in the life of the main character from our reading this week. 

 

 

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. 

First 100 high frequency words
