Year 4 Home Learning

Week 12: commencing 13th July 2020

Welcome to Week 12 of your home learning




Welcome to the final week of our home learning journey this term. It has been a strange few weeks but, together, we have made it through. We would just like to say how very proud we are of you all for all your commitment and hard work over the past few weeks.We are sad that we won't be able to say goodbye to you in person but we will still see you in September.

We have been so very impressed with the work that has been sent in and really appreciate your efforts.

For this last week we would really like to to concentrate on basic skills, so that will be times tables for maths (every day. Practise, practise, practise) along with a reading activity and practising the year 3 and 4 word lists. Writing this week will be all about reflection (looking back) and looking forward towards next year. We can't wait to see what you have to say!


Email your pictures to Miss Smith or Mrs Forryan (through your School Jotter emails) or ask an adult to send it to us at either or (or they can even send us a message with it on Facebook or Twitter).


If you have any questions, please email us. We still need your help -  if you find any links that don't work or anything else that doesn't make sense, please let us know.

This week is all about times tables. You will be practising the MULTIPLICATION and DIVISION  facts for all times tables up to 12 X 12

Below are a selection of games you can use to help you practise your times tables. You should practise these DAILY. Ideally you will play a few different games THROUGHOUT THE DAY. this is something you should really try and continue with over the summer. REMEMBER - if you do not practise your times tables you WILL  forget them.

- You could share the text or another book together where you read and discuss (either the whole book for short stories or a chapter a day for longer books).

- Listen to your child read and let them discuss what they have read. Encourage them to read with expression and intonation. 

A selection of free to read eBooks can be found on:  

  • EPIC      This is where you will need to go now for free ebooks

       type in school code hrn6143 

- watch Newsround and discuss what is happening around the world.



You are going to continue to practise the year 3 / 4 statutory words - 

You have now worked your way through all of the words on the statutory word list for year 3 and 4 meaning that  over the previous few weeks you should have practised spelling all of them. 

Use this statutory words list sheet to check which words you have made spelling mistakes with before and then practise them some more until you get them right.  

 Over the week complete all of the following for the words you have chosen:

  • Learn how to spell the words
  • Write a definition of each focus word (what it means)
  • Where it is possible, write synonyms for each focus word (words which mean the same) and antonyms  (words which mean the opposite)
  • Use each focus word in a sentence.
Over the next few weeks do a spelling test once a week on the words that have been identified as the ones your child is struggling with from the list – it takes 10 minutes and keeps your kids on their toes.



As we have come to the end of the term, this week will all be about looking back over the past year and looking forwards to the following year.

We want you to think about what you have most enjoyed over the past year and during lock down and what your best memories are, what you will miss, what you think are your best achievements  etc.

We also want you to think about September. What are you most looking forward to when  you start your new class? What are your hopes and dreams for the following year? What would you like to achieve? 

Think about all you have learned about spelling, grammar and handwriting - make sure you use these skills in your writing. How are you going to set it out? Can you use bullet points or  subheadings etc? Will you include pictures? 

You have three activities to complete. It is up to you what you do on which day. You may decide to redraft your work or add pictures.


We look forward to reading all about you :-) 

Activity 1:  What I have enjoyed most during lock down? What will you miss? What are you proud of? 


Activity 2:  What I have enjoyed most about your time in Lemurs or Tigers? What will you miss? What are you proud of? 


Activity 3:  What are you looking forwards to when you start your new class? What are your hopes and dreams? What do you hope to achieve next year?



  • Create a mind map for each of the following and list everything you can remember about them.


  • The Mayans 
  • The Ancient Egyptians
  • Digestion (including teeth)




 If you have started it, continue with the sportingage PE challenge. If not, why not start now?
