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.
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 decimals and money There are videos to support each lesson, activities to complete and the answers to check when you have completed them.
We are currently on Summer term week 2 and I will do a video to help support one of these sessions with some extra questions.
Session 1: Rounding decimals.
Session 2: Halves and quarters
Session 3: Pounds and pence.
Session 4: Ordering money.
Session 5: Maths challenge.
Please learn to tell the time! Children in Year 4 need to be able to:
- read an analogue clock to the nearest minute
- write this time in words and on a digital clock
- they need know am and pm
- write time using the 24 hour clock.
Any help that you can have with teaching your children this life skill would be amazing!
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.
5467 = ____ – 3245 6102 – ____ = 876 9229 = 4462 + ____ 45.3 x 100 678 ÷100
45.78 x 10 20.4 x 10 546 ÷3 6 x 7 x 4 346 x 7
5467 + _______ = 9043 479 = 8954 – ____ 678 + _____ = 4005 405.2 x 10
589.3 ÷ 10 4507 ÷100 479 x 5 803÷6 7 x 7 x 6
546÷8 307÷5 984÷4 617÷3 772 ÷ 4 567÷1 4 x0 x 7
5/6 of 360 7/9 of 360 5783 – 948 7654 – 4992
Session 4: Roman numerals
XIII x III = VII x V x IV = LXXVII + XLVIII = XXXIV + XCIX =
XC + L + XL = LIV + XXVI = XCV + LXIX = XLI + LXI + LXXXVIII =
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
This week we are focussing on the story ‘The man who bought a mountain.’

In writing, the children need to be able to write for a range of purposes. When doing this, they should use a range of grammar and punctuation accurately and for effect. So far, we have learned how to:
- Use and punctuate direct speech (BBC Bitesize Music Video)
- Use subordinate conjunctions to write complex sentences (Music Video BBC Bitesize Twinkl )
Children also need to ensure that their writing is interesting and detailed. To support this, children have so far learned to:
- Use a range of interesting fronted adverbials followed by a comma (Twinkl)
- Use personification (Music Video)
- Use metaphors and similes (BBC Bitesize)
- Use adjectives and expanded noun phrases.
- Use paragraphs (Bitesize)
You may want to extend this by adding in speech between the characters or turning this into your own story.
In school, we do writing each day from 9:20-10:20. Don’t worry if they have forgotten how to use a skill as the links suggested will explain what to do. When you send your work to me, don’t forget to tell us which skills you have tried to include so I can check they are in there.
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.
Science and topic:
Use google maps to research rainforests in the world. Where are they located? What information can you find out about the rainforests? Create a poster/leaflet about different rainforests in the world.
PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Emotional) learning:
This week we are focussing on Creativity J
Choose some of these activities to complete.
