Year 4 - look on the Y4 pages
We have now read lots of books by Julia Donaldson. Think about your favourite character from one of her books and
draw a character profile of that character. Write some notes around the outside of your picture about what the
character looks like; what they might eat; what the character does in the story and what the character says in
the book. Also keep working on your habitat models at home today.
Today, we would like you to go onto the Mathletics website www.mathletics.co.uk
and have a go at activities related to halving and doubling.
You can practise real and non sense words, using your cards
to create words which you can write down and bring into
We would also like you to choose a traditional/fairy tale
character am consider what kind of character they are
(good/bad). What makes them different from others? Can you
think of some suitable words to describe the character? You
could bring in any work you complete tomorrow and share it
with the class.
You can also read your school reading book and practise your
spellings ready for Wednesday.
We have just started learning about different places. We will be comparing them to where we live. So, whilst you are at home today we would like you to have a go at writing some sentences about where you live. This can be your house, your town or even the whole of the UK. Talk to grown ups and look at pictures or websites to help you find out more.
When you are writing your sentences don't forget to sound out the words one at a time and to leave finger spaces
between the words. If you need a grown up to help you that is OK, just make sure you have your best go at saying the
sounds in the words.
At the moment our maths targets are all about shapes. Have a look around your house and see what shapes you can spot.
Can you find these: circle, square, rectangle, triangle, pentagon and hexagon? If you are in Mrs Lopes's maths
group, can you find and name some 3D shapes? Record what you find out by taking photos, drawing pictures or keeping a
list of the shapes you find. Don't forget to bring these in to show us so that we can give you a star on your target if
you have achieved it.
Owls Find out about evacuation :
Robins Write a poem or acrostic about snow and practice your times tables.
Kingfishers Log into the Mathletics website www.mathletics.co.uk and follow the programme set. Write an explanation about how to use a computer. Don't forget to use time related words, headings and the present tense. Diagrams or pictures are good too.
Kestrels Practice comparing and measuring the capacity of containers.
Remember, you can use cups, bowls or pots: anything as long as it holds water (make sure you ask first though). Don't
forget to clear up any mess you might make!
Identify one African animal for each letter of the alphabet.
Write your information in a list, using bullet points for each letter. This website might help
Woodpeckers Investigate the 5 senses with your child. See if they can find their ears, eyes, nose,
hands and tongue and talk about the senses with them. Today is a good day to go outside and explore the cold with the
sense of touch, maybe feel some snow and listen to the wind.
Indoors you can go on a listening walk around the house or you could play a game. You hide and make a sound and they
have to find you. You could use an instrument for this. To explore the sense of taste you could taste different things
and talk about what they like or do not like.
