Year 4

Dear Parents and Carers

During your child’s time away from school, please take the opportunity to continue to help develop their learning.

The children will be set tasks through Purple Mash and Mathletics by me. These tasks are linked to what the children would currently be learning in Year 4. It is important for children to complete these activities. When children hand their work in through Purple Mash, they can send me a message to let me know how they are finding the tasks. It would be lovely for the children to keep in touch with me and let me know how they are getting on with their learning and tasks at home! Children can also use this if they have any questions they would like to ask about their work. I will mark the Purple Mash activities handed in and reply to children's comments. This will be a great way to keep in touch.

Please message if you need anything, keep safe and I look forward to seeing you all soon!

I have signed up for Year 4 to join a brand new site Classroom Secrets Kids - which is full of fantastic games and activities the children can access independently. To receive your child's login information, please contact the school office or email Katie at Thank you! Keep up the good work Year 4! 
Some of the Year 4 children use ReadWise on the iPad with Miss Shield's support to help improve their spellings. Children can now access ReadWise at home. Please read the letter below for information on how to access ReadWise. If you are unsure if your child is part of the ReadWise programme, or your child does not know their username and password, then please contact the School Office for this information.

It's the last week of what's been a difficult school year! I'd like to say a big well done to all my Year 4s who have worked so hard throughout this period. I've enjoyed marking all your purple mash and seeing all the good work you've been doing at home or in school. For the last Classroom Secrets pack, it's all about learning French and Bastille Day. I hope you enjoy your well-deserved Summer and I will see you all in September! Stay safe. Mrs Shaw laugh

Year 4 Revision Booklets

For any parents that are interested in extra learning over the summer holidays. I've uploaded some revision packs for the children. 
Below is a pack of lots of fun activities your child can complete over Summer to promote positive well-being. 

Year 4 Home Learning Pack 

I've uploaded below documents that are included in your child's home learning pack. The documents below include answers. Please make sure you pick up your child's home learning pack from the school office. The home learning pack includes all your child's login information.

Maths Arithmetic Tests

Grammar Tests

Reading Tests

Extra worksheets

Below I've uploaded extra worksheets if your child completes the home pack given, along with answers to the worksheets. I've also added some practical ideas, for practical Maths activities that can be completed at home.

Practical ideas

Here are a variety of supplementary activities that could be done to support learning your child's learning at home:

  • Writing a diary/journal about the current events - it will be a part of world history one day! In Year 4, we have spoken about Anne Frank's diary. The children could create a journal of their own.
  • Baking and cooking - there is lots of Maths involved in baking!
  • Teach your child to tell the time. In Year 4, the children focus on converting analogue to digital and digital to analogue.
  • Learning about money! Lots of application of Maths skills can be taught through money. Set up a miniature tuck shop at home! The children could practise paying for snacks.
  • Drawing and painting
  • Visiting the Spelling Shed website to practise the year 3/4 word list
  • Junk modelling out of recycled cartons, boxes etc. In Year 4, the children were given homework to create a gas mask and WW2 gas mask bag. You could create these using junk materials at home.
  • Understanding the importance of regular exercise - Joe Wicks' live PE stream daily. Year 4 have taken part in lots of mindfulness and yoga this year.
