YEAR 4 HOME LEARNING
New work will be added here each Monday during the school closure to keep you busy at home. I will try and keep the activities as interesting and as varied as I can. Regardless of what I add here, please make sure you keep up with your reading, spelling, handwriting and times tables practice. Please also keep an eye on the main Year 4 class page as links to new websites that you might like to use will be added on a regular basis (I will mark newly added ones in red). It's going to be strange not seeing you for a while, I will miss you! Stay safe, stay busy, stay in touch with one another and stay curious.
Maths - I would like everyone in Year 4 to continue practising their times tables using TTRock Stars. The link for this is on our main Year 4 web page. For other maths work please see your maths group below.
Mrs Price - See Year 5 page
Mrs Andrew - See Year 3 page
Creative - If you have the resources at home to do so, make a card for an elderly neighbour who may need cheering up in these times of change. Remember, keep the information about yourself to a minimum (no one should be able to identify you from your card). SEEK YOUR PARENTS PERMISSION BEFORE COMPLETING THIS ACTIVITY.
School Values - Never have our values been so important, Perseverance, Thankfulness and Hope, to name a few, will stand us in good stead as we navigate these tricky times. Our value this half term is Compassion. Click on the link to explore how you can share this value at home.
Literacy / Topic Work - some gentle activities to get us into the swing of things for Week One of our remote learning journey.
While you're home you may like to have a little structure to your day. Things you may like to consider -
Quiet Time - Make time for this throughout the day. You can use this time for reading, practising handwriting and undertaking some 'Mindfulness' activities e.g. tracing etc.
Mental Maths (15-20 mins a day) - Quick fire times tables, Fact Families (2 x 3 = 6 / 3 x 2 = 6 / 6 ÷ 3 = 2 / 6 ÷ 2 = 3) etc can be practised during this time.
Written Maths - Take about 30 -40 mins each day to revise already know calculations methods and/or learn a new concept.
Writing - Take about 30-40 mins each day to undertake some writing. Writing comes in many forms.. .diary entry, instructions, story, newspaper report, Fact-file etc. Try and have a balance of handwritten writing and typed.
Fresh Air & Fitness - Ensure you get plenty of exercise every day. In school you are out playing for at least 90 mins during a day. Try and match this whilst you're at home.
Problem Solving - There are many ways to practice your problem solving skills - you could learn a new skill, solve a puzzle, play a strategy game like chess, complete some maths problems or create an obstacle course in the garden and challenge yourself to complete it in a given time.
Sit down and enjoy a family meal - This is a great time to check in with each other and to share ideas of what you can do the following day.
Research - You might like to start a project on a given subject and take some time each day to find out information on your topic. If you don't fancy doing a project, work to find out '5 Fun Facts' a day.
Free Time - Take some time each day to do something that you like doing, don't forget to ask Mum and Dad's permission first!
