Year 4 Home Learning - Week 2

Hello and welcome back to week 2 of summer 2 home learning.  I have seen some fantastic work from last week.  Oliver produced a wonderful rap.  I tried to get him and mum to perform the rap and send it in, but for some reason they wouldn't!  I didn't use my persuasive language well enough I guess!  This week we are moving onto decimals in maths and character descriptions in English.  There is a great little extra in the form of a new story from JK Rowling too.

English.  Character descriptions.

Spellings.  This week we are moving onto adding the suffix 'ous', marvellous! The list of words to learn are below.  Learn them over the week and ask your parents to test you later in the week.  I have also included a link to lots of activities to support your learning of 'ous'.

tremendous, enormous, jealous, serious, hideous, fabulous, curious, anxious, obvious, gorgeous


Maths.  We are jumping along the number line to work on decimals.  Remember to watch the video for each lesson before completing the worksheet.  Get your mum or dad to go through the answers with you after too.

Answers for lesson 4


RE. What Jesus did to save people? Last week we watched the story of Zacchaeus and you made a gift box. This week I would like you to think about the Bible story, The lost sheep. I have included a PowerPoint of the story, can you also find it in the Bible? What do you think the story tells us? How is the Bible trying to help us? Have you ever been lost? How did it feel? Who is always there for you to help and protect you?

The Lost Sheep

The moral of the parable of the Lost Sheep is that each person is precious to God. Draw a poster about being lost. Show me who is there to protect and help you, God, your parents, your teachers and friends. Send in your work.

Science. Separating materials and mixtures. I would like you to have a go at the Education City unit called Chemistry Cocktail. It is all about separating mixtures in different ways. There is a video and some games then activity sheets to complete.

Topic: Please continue to work on your DT project Mrs Dodd gave you (designing and making a house flag). Please send me photos of your designs. I'd love to see them. If you would also like some fun, creative work follow the link below. It is full of music, texture treasure hunts, drawing, shadows and beat boxing!


Extra, extra, read all about it!

JK Rowling, do you remember her? Has written another book for children. She wrote it a long time ago for her children, but she hid it in her loft until now. She has begun to publish it for you during lockdown. It is a story called, 'The Ickabog'. It is great, I have been reading it with my children. She is releasing a few chapters at a time on the website. There is also a drawing competition, where you can get your art work in the actual book when the hard copy is published later this year. I'd like to you to read it on your own (or share with your parents) and complete some of the drawing challenges. You can send them off to the publishers and you may get your drawings in her book. AMAZING! All the details and story are on the website,
