Home Learning Overview

 

 

Science

 

This half we are learning about Animals and their habitats. Here are some links to introduce this fascinating topic. 

Classifying animals

How animals are adapted

Learning about food chains

What is evolution?

Now it's time to get out and about! What animals share your local area? Think about where they live, and what they eat. How do their physical characteristics help them to live successfully in their habitat?

 

  Humanities

 

 Our new topic this half is France: our closest neighbour? What can you find out about this European country? What things do we have in common - and what differences do you notice?

English

Spelling, punctuation and grammar

The children should complete one of the grammar tasks below each week. Please read the instructions for each question carefully as we have given some clues to go with some of the questions.

 

Reading

We would like you to keep working on the list 'Reading Journal' activities we sent before Easter. Please try to complete one of these tasks each day. The children can use a school graded reader, or a book from home. These tasks should be competed in your child's exercise book.

 

Continue to read a range of fiction and non-fiction books with your child. Suggested questions to help deepen your child's understanding of their books can be found on pages 100-101 of their 'Home School Reading Record'.

 

Get Epic

We have set the children a number of books to read related to our topics on Get Epic. This digital library is free to use during school hours and the children should read 1-2 books each week. Most books come with a quiz that should be completed after the books have been read carefully.

 

Get Epic can be accessed via this link or through the Get Epic app.

Writing & Spelling

 

A new focussed writing task is attached below. The file called Y4 Unit features a series of activities based around a story called "Mission Possible". The booklet guides you through the process of planning and writing a story. Please work through the tasks at your own speed. 

 

Weekly spelling lists are provided for each week. Please practise these words daily ensuring the children are aware of any spelling patterns and are able to explain meanings of the words and can use them in a sentence.
