Welcome Year 4!
Hello Year 4!
Over the Easter holiday period (WC 6th April and 13th April) we would like you to take a break from your school work. Miss Haywood and Mrs Melton are impressed with how hard you are all working at home. There will be no work posted on this page over the holiday period. Please take some time to relax. Go out on your garden or get creative! Stay safe 🙂
This homework page has been set up so you can updates on activities that need to be completed at home, as well as your ‘work at home’ packs.
White Rose Maths have created new lessons for this week. If you didn’t complete some of the activities last week, they are still on the website for you to see. Look on this website https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/ for lessons for Week 2. Today’s lesson is dividing two digits by 10. This can be done in addition to the maths packs and tasks set on Purple Mash.

White Rose Maths is the scheme that we use for our daily maths lessons. They are offering FREE home learning packs which includes a teaching video, questions and answers. Using this will help you continue your learning in line with what we have learnt in school.
There is also a support group on Facebook. If you or your parents have a Facebook account please join the following group: Year 4- White Rose Maths Home Learning.
Here is a FREE times table pack Ultimate-Times-Tables-Tests-Year-4. Also, there is a guide for you which breaks down how to use the pack and the level your child should be working at Times Tables Pack Parent Guide. There are 5 tests and assessments along with the answers at the end on the document. These papers can be spread out across several days. Also these questions do not need to be completed in ‘test conditions’ but as an extra times table worksheet.
Don’t forget to complete challenges set on Times Table Rock stars! Earn those coins or even challenge Miss Haywood and Mrs Melton!!
Each day there will be a new Fluent in 5 and Problem of the Day. Do these in your purple work book. They will appear at the bottom of this class page.
To continue with our learning project, this week for English you’re going to be an Abbey Hill news reporter! Research information about Edmund Hilary and Sherpa Tenzing, the first men to reach the top of Mount Everest. Then write your own newspaper article about their journey. Log into Purple Mash and click on the ‘First Men to Climb Everest’ 2do to complete this activity. Use the ‘Think about’ box to help you to write your article. Remember: Use the internet to research information.
This task may take a couple of days to complete so save your work progress everyday. This doesn’t have to be completed on Purple Mash. It can be written in your purple workbook. We look forward to reading your newspaper articles.
Look in your home learning pack for more activities to do!
Remember to read at least three times a week at home. Use the guided reading grid for activities to complete for any book that you are reading.
