Year 4 – Home Learning 1/2/21

Good morning everyone,

I hope you have had a wonderful and restful weekend ready for another full week of home learning!

I would like to just remind you to continue sending through all your amazing learning you are doing; I love seeing how hard you are all working. Many of the activities that the children need to complete throughout the day can be found on Purple Mash, so if you can, it would be amazing to see more children accessing this learning online.

This ween we will begin to have some activities set on Google Classroom. Logins have all be sent to your email addresses. Please let us know if you have any problems and we will be happy to help.

In addition, we will be having another Zoom this week at 2pm for the children. This will be on Wednesday 3rd February. We will send out a reminder text closer to the day. This is to check in with the children and then to play a fun game together.


Also, remember to keep yourself active throughout the day and take some well-deserved brain breaks!


See below for the tasks I would like your child to complete today:


Home Learning for Monday 1st February 2021:


Joe Wicks is back this lockdown with his morning workouts!

These will be happening on his YouTube channel on a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning at 9am! It is a great way to start your day so have a go and get energised!

Follow this link to our lesson on Parallel and Perpendicular Lines –

In this lesson, we will be revisiting pairs of parallel and perpendicular lines. We will look at how they differ and what they have in common, as well as where they occur in 2D shapes.

Throughout the lesson you will be asked to pause the video and complete different tasks. These tasks can be found in the document below. As it is a word document, it can be edited, and you can complete it directly on the word document without having to print anything out.


Alternately, the Maths task is available to be completed on Google Classroom. You can follow this link to log in to your account:

Sign in – Google accounts


Extra: practice your times-tables speed with the 2do set on Purple Mash.



This will be our eleventh lesson on The Jabberwocky by Lewis Carrol.

For this lesson, you will need to follow the link below to get to the video.

You will need to watch the lesson very carefully. Throughout the lesson, you will be asked to pause the lesson and complete some tasks. These tasks can be completed on Purple Mash as they have been set as 2dos. A copy of the tasks has also been attached below (these can be completed in the word document and then emailed to me). – open in Google Chrome.




Read the chapter that has been set on Purple Mash (The Knockers – Chapter 5 OR Magic in the Moonlight – Chapter 4).

Task One – complete multi-choice quiz that is set on Purple Mash.


Remember to read your own book everyday (reading helps us develop fantastic language for our own writing!)



Here are the two spelling lists for this week (make sure you continue to learn the spellings of ONE list):

List One:









List Two:










NB: on Friday, your child will be tested on their spelling through a test set up on Purple Mash.


Task One – practice spelling your list by using the look, say, cover, write, check method (this could be done on paper at home).

Task Two – use the blank wordsearch sheet below to create your own work search using your spelling list (you could also draw up your own grid at home).

Wordsearch Template



We are beginning a new unit for Art: Mythological Paintings. This will be our first lesson and is linked to our History topic that we have just finished.

Go through the PDF that is attached below (this is the SMART that we would have gone through in class):

Art Lesson 1

Theseus and the Minotaur – Full Story

I have also made a video that you could watch. I go through the lesson and ask you pause at different points to complete tasks. This has been set on Google Classroom if you would like to watch it.

Any questions that you come across you could write down some answers or discuss them with someone at home. The Knowledge Organiser is attached below; make sure that you read it every lesson as this is all the things you are going to learn about.


Task One: Look at the document attached below and answer the following questions for each painting.

  • What part of the story is the painting showing?
  • Which characters do the paintings show?
  • What is the setting?

Which painting do you think is the oldest and which is the most recent?

Task 1

Task Two: Identify a part of the story that you like (it doesn’t need to be a part that you have already looked at as a painting) and draw/sketch what is happening in the scene.

You should include as much detail as you can. Use the following questions to help you:

  • What characters will you include?
  • What are they doing?
  • What is the setting?



I hope you have a wonderful day and are keeping safe.
