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 Perimeter and Area. 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 4 and I will do a video to help support one of these sessions with some extra questions.

Session 5:  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:

76.8÷10         5467÷100        32.7 x 10          987÷100       54.6 x 10     38.04 x 100

569÷3       7x8x2         806×7           774÷8          3200÷8 =

 

Session 2:

5673+ 3906         ____ = 9087-3342         6547= 9978- _____       9x0x4     631÷4

730×6       69×7

 

Session 3:

Find the difference between these numbers:

  1. 456 and 703
  2. 1346 and 356
  3. 3776 and 4989
  4. 7039 and 1855
  5. £23.43 and £ 12.87

 

Session 4: 

3/7 of 21     4/7 of 210      5/8 of 40    2/8 of 4000     7/12 of 56     9/12 of 560

5 x 600    7 x 700   420÷6    7200÷____ = 9

 

Session 5:

Round these numbers to the nearest 10:

456            704        25    6678    9034

Round these numbers to the nearest 100:

784     339  193    56     7750    8103

Round these numbers to the nearest 1000:

7093    1554   6369   4005   5833

 

 

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:  Inverted commas

You need to rewrite this paragraph adding in all of the missing punctuation.

 

Writing

Use the image to base your story on.

Think about describing the scene using adjectives, noun phrases and similes. Add the FANTASTICS in – feelings, thoughts, actions, the 5 senses.

 

Use your imagination – this picture could just be the start of a creative adventure for the 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:

  • At the moment, everyone is worrying about lots of different things. We would like you to create a poster about everything that makes you happy! J
  • Look at this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3TikcVkFow of how to draw a face. We would like you to create a self-portrait or a portrait of someone who you live with, using the skills from this video.

 

  • Everybody is different and everybody enjoys learning about different things! Please research a topic that you are interested in…and create a poster to send to your teacher J
