Year 4

Rolling maths activities:

Times Table Rockstars , try Soundcheck

regularly.

● Alternatively, pick a times table to practise and

roll a dice (or two!) to decide what to multiply it

by.

● Hit the Button - focus on number bonds,

halves, doubles and times tables.

● Practise telling the

time. Can you convert

analogue to digital

time?

New activities:

● Get a piece of paper and show everything you

know about Division. This could be pictures,

diagrams, explanations, methods etc. You can

be as creative as you want to be.

● Grab a handful of small objects (lego, beads,

buttons, smarties). Is your original number

divisible by 4, 6 or 8? Are there any

remainders? Can you illustrate this visually?

● Can you add up the items of the weekly

shopping list? How much change would you

get from £100? £250?

Practise spelling the words using any of our spelling

games; pyramid write, rainbow write, boxing around

letters, missing vowels, opposite hand etc.

Practise writing your spellings in sentences (writing

practise neat, cursive handwriting

Choose at least 3 of the words. Create a Frayer

Model to explore the word. Remember to create a

definition that you will understand for words you

find tricky to explain. Non-examples can be the

opposite or something unrelated! Look up words

you are unsure of https://www.vocabulary.com/

Frayer Model

Write an email to a family member telling

● Design an information leaflet about an

could create a leaflet about a real or

fictitious zoo.

● Write a description of a fictional animal

that has just been discovered. Think about

what it looks like, where it lives and what it

eats. Draw a picture to show what this new

creature is like.

● Write a set of instructions for how to look

after a pet. Remember to include what you

need and what you do. This could be for a

real pet or a pet of your own imagination.

Science

We have signed up to ‘Developing experts’. You will have access to a lesson and activities per day for 6 days from 27.4.20. If we had been at school we would have covered similar objectives. You should have received an email with your child’s individual login for the site. The lesson headings are as follows:

If you are finding it difficult to access these lessons here are some other ideas for things to do at home as well or instead. DIGESTION Watch or carry out the digestive system experiment below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7av19YhNkhE This is another brilliant clip about How the Digestive system works – one of our favourites!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwrsL-lCZYo Can you draw an outline of the human body (you could even draw round a grown up) and draw the organs involved in the digestive system? Can you write down their functions? TEETH A teeth song:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DstSL3I--9I Explore the function of the teeth using this clip. Can you use a mirror to spot the types of teeth in your mouth?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/guides/zsp76yc#z99vrwx Tooth Decay Experiment

Have a go at organising your own experiment about tooth decay. Use eggshells to represent teeth and place them in cups with different drinks. What do you predict will happen to the eggshells after a week? Can you carry out a fair test?

Themed Learning – Animals If you have any other time you may like to try some of these, please remember we are not

expecting you to do everything – we’d rather give lots of choice of what may appeal to your

child

animals they are interested in. Learning may focus on exploring the physical aspects of an

animal, their habitat, categorising animals etc.

● Let’s Wonder:

and label them with information you find out. Where does the predator live? Why does it

live there? What does it eat? How does it capture its prey? What special qualities do these

predators have? Make a food chain to demonstrate why a predator is at the top of the chain.

You could make a set of top trump cards using the information you found out.

● Let’s Create: Explore the artist Franz Marc. Find out who he was and what type of artist

he was. What did he like to create pictures? Look at some of his paintings

online. Then choose an animal to draw and add colour to, in a similar style

to his. What do you think of his paintings? Do you like your finished piece of artwork?

Why?/Why not?

● Be Active: Get out into the garden and make a bug hotel. Go on a mini beast hunt and record

what you find. If you find any minibeasts you haven’t seen before you could

always look them up online. What can you find out about these amazing

creatures?

Recommendation at least 2 hours of exercise a week.

● Time to Talk:

Find out which animals are your family members' favourites and why.

Have a family debate about whether zoos should exist? Discuss whether you

agree/disagree and why? Do your family members have a different opinion

to you? Why not debate whether animals should be kept as pets?

● Understanding Others and Appreciating Differences: Which are considered to be Sacred Animals around the world

and why? Who admires cows? Lions? Wolves? Which animals

were important to the Egyptians and why?

Two online maths lessons which are excellent retrieval sessions:

For worksheets, we recommend Classroom Secrets Learning Packs

These packs are split into different year groups and include activities linked to reading, writing, maths and practical ideas you can do around the home. Twinkl
