YEAR 4 HOME LEARNING
Information about 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.

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!
