Core tasks for Year 4...

Good evening Year 4,

I hope you have all had a peaceful weekend and are ready to get back to work.

I have included this week's work in the same format as last week, please do remember to email me if you need any help This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


I have shared this week's spellings below for you. Please do not feel that you need to print the handwriting sheet but do use it to remind you of how to join your letters correctly. Remember there are many ways to practise your spellings; a spelling pyramid, finding the meanings of the words, using the words in a sentence and spelling the word out loud.


For reading, I thought I would share one of the reading comprehension sheets we would usually complete in class. Think about how we work in school: read the text carefully, read the question, underline the answer and then write a full sentence for your answer. This week's text is a fiction text called "The Journey", what genre do you think this text is? Can you link this to another text you might know? Don't forget to keep reading books for pleasure too. They will help you to be better writers.


Pobble 365 continues to be my favoured resource at this time. I hope you are enjoying using the images to inspire your writing. I have chosen a wonderful picture for you to focus on this week and it is called 'around the world'. Don't forget there are lots of activities on this page so you could pick one a day if you want to spread out your learning.


White Rose Home Learning are doing a brilliant job of providing Maths learning for you. Here are the worksheets for the week (I will blog the answers on Wednesday). This week they have suggested we begin looking at decimals, this is not something we have covered in school yet so please do not hesitate to email me with any questions . Don't forget to use the methods you have learnt, including part-whole models, to help you.

Note to parents

You should be able to read and access the tasks on this blog page to teach your child. No task should take any longer than 30 minutes. All tasks can be answered without printing materials; you just need some paper and pencil to write your answers.

For the maths task, children may need to use objects or draw diagrams to help them e.g. bar models, place value grids or extra lines and labels on diagrams.

At present we do not ask that parents/carers must share their child's work with their class teacher. However, if you do send us your child's work or photographs of other activities they have been completing, I would love to celebrate it and may share it on the weekly blog on Fridays. Please send examples of your child's learning to my email address, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 12 noon on Thursdays. Please remember that if you share your child's work you will not get individual feedback.

If you have any questions, please get in touch and I will be making more phone calls this week so I can also answer any questions then.

Stay safe

Mrs Hind
