Year 4 Home Learning
Each day your child will be set a number of short tasks which can be accessed via the links below. Each sheet will come with simple instructions. Please try to support your child through this work on the day it has been set.
Many of the English and maths home learning tasks have been differentiated to allow children to access the tasks at a level suitable for their own stage of learning. There is a letter in the bottom left corner of each page to denote the level of the tasks. They are differentiated as follows:
D = For children who are unsure about a concept and need a little extra support.
E = A suitable level for children who are feeling more confident about a concept.
GD = A more difficult set of questions for those who want to challenge themselves further.
Children can copy and complete the questions into their Home Learning book . Children can choose one level to complete and maybe challenge themselves with questions from the next level; there is no expectation for the children to complete all three pages. The questions could also be printed if preferred, though this is not essential. Please encourage your children to complete both the A and B questions.
If you have any questions, please let us know via the home learning email address (email@example.com).
In addition, children should aim to complete one task from the home learning bingo sheet at the bottom of this page (this has now been updated to a .pdf version).
We are pleased to inform you that the children can access Accelerated Reader from home, in order to quiz on their reading book.
The option to quiz is now available between 9am and 5pm each day. Children should log in using their username and password by clicking here:
'Schools are closed but reading doesn't have to stop!'
Renaissance Place (the providers of Accelerated Reader) have announced free access to pupils for over 6,000 eBooks through 'myON'. The best news of all for the children in Upper Phase is that they will all have quizzes! Click on the picture below to find a book to read.
READING CHALLENGE - By the end of the week (Friday 3rd April), try and finish a book and complete a quiz using Accelerated Reader. When completing quizzes, please make sure you are quizzing on a book you have finished within the past couple of days. Try to avoid quizzing on books you read a while ago, as it can affect the accuracy of your ZPD score. Most importantly, have fun reading! Maybe you could compile a top ten list of books you have read whilst school is closed?

In addition to the daily English and maths tasks, the children should choose and complete one task from the bingo sheet below.

There are also some extra activity ideas and a spelling booklet to help you practise the Year 4 spellings.
Message from Mrs Waldock: "Just to let you know, I have set a new assignment for the Year 4 pupils with their ukuleles. The pupils will need to click on the 'moon' and then find the 'assignment' logo. This new assignment introduces a new chord and new piece. They should aim to sing it through first and then see if they can clap any of the rhythms on the page. Then they can try just playing the C major chord in the correct place before introducing D minor. Left handers will need to remember that their ukuleles have been strung backwards so that when they are holding their ukulele the top string is G, then C, E and the string closest to the floor is A. There is also a fun piece for them to listen to!" Please use the link below to access the music assignment using your Yumu login details:
