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!

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.
