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

Please complete the home learning sessions on the White Rose website focussing on Multiplication an Division. 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 3 and I will do a video to help support one of these sessions with some extra questions.

Session 1: Multiplying a 2 digit by a 1 digit number.

Session 2: Multiplying a 3 digit number by a 1 digit number.

Session 3: Dividing a 2 digit number by a 1 digit number.

Session 4: Dividing a 3 digit number by a 1 digit number.

Session 5: Maths challenge.

 

Extra 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!

 

 

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:

5467 ÷100      6102 ÷ 10         9229 ÷ 100      £45.65 + 37p       3 x 3 x 8    9 x 8 x 6

563÷5      774÷4       6510 = _____ - 342          7991 = 4435 + ______

Session 2:

9305 + 856 =             4488 + 7721 =         1456+ 200 + ____ = 1856

375 + 225 + ____ = 1000     450 = 350 + ____      36 = 22 + ____

67 = 43 + _____        26 x 4 =        704 x 5

 

Session 3:

27x5      443 x 8         4/7 of 56       956 =  _____ - 322         6547 = _____ - 294

5433 = _____ + 905       ____ = 6677 + 3346      4 x 5 x 3           6 x 6 x 3

 

Session 4: 

50 x 3 =        600 x 4 =        810÷9 =        4356 + 6567 =        7272 -6565 =

346 x 3 =       76 ÷ 8 =        2 x 6 x 7 =       4/6 of 180 =

 

Session 5:

140÷7 =        320÷8 =          450÷5=      60 x 3 =      400 x 2 =

59 ÷ 3 =      87 ÷ 4 =       557÷3=        296 ÷ 7 =        3/8 of 48 =

 

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

 

This week we are focussing on the story ‘Jazz Harper: Space Explorer.”

SPaG: Pronouns

Write some sentences using these pronouns and nouns.

 

Writing

This is the character in your story for this week:

 

  • Write a character description of this character: think of it’s name, voice, movement, personality, family.
  • Include this character in your own story. (You may create other characters in your story too).
  • Write a diary for a day in the life if this character.

 

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

Year 3 and 4 statutory spelling list

 

Curriculum:

This week we would like to learn a life skill. Some people who you may meet in your life may communicate using sign language.

Using this to help you, practise signing your name and come common phrases.

Send us pictures of you doing this J
