Year 4 – Home Learning 2/2/21

Good morning everyone,

It was so lovely to see all the fantastic work you have been doing at home! Please continue sending it in as I love to see it. Remember, many of the tasks have been set as 2dos on Purple Mash and we are beginning to use Google Classroom.

Please continue to keep in touch with me via my email below. Send through any work that your child has completed as well as any questions or support you may need. I will have access to my emails throughout the typical school day.


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 Tuesday 2nd February 2021:


Yesterday’s lesson was about parallel lines and perpendicular lines. If you need a bit of a recap, you could watch the video again from yesterday to refresh your memory. – open in Google Chrome.

For today’s task, I would like you to design your own flag to set criteria.

Write the numbers 1 to 10 individually on small bits of paper and scrunch them up.

Select two pieces of paper.

The first number indicates the number of parallel lines and the second number indicates the number of pairs of perpendicular lines the flag must have.

Your flags can be drawn digitally or on paper that you have at home.

You can also use colour to decorate your flag. Make sure that when you send your finished flags to me you tell me how many parallel and perpendicular lines your flag should have.

You could use this link below as a starting point:

Alternatively, this task has been set on Google Classroom. You can follow the link attached below to log in to your Google Classroom:

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



This will be our twelfth 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. A copy of the tasks has also been attached below (these can be completed in the word document and emailed to me). – open in Google Chrome.




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

The Knockers – complete the chapter sequencing task attached below.

Chapter Sequencing (The Knockers)

Magic in the Moonlight – complete the joining word task attached below.

Joining Words (MITM)


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 doing pyramid words (this could be done on paper at home).

Task Two – can you list more words that have a similar spelling pattern to some of the words on your list?

E.g. Straight – eight

Pull – full, dull



This week for PE it is all about aiming!

Open the PDF below and read through the tasks that I would like you to complete today:

PE Home Learning Climb the Ladder

  1. Place three targets on the floor in a line, one step away from each other.
  2. Using a small object can you throw the object and hit the first target.
  3. When you have hit the first target, only then can you move onto the next target.
  4. How many throws does it take to hit all three targets?
  5. If you are playing against a partner, the first player to hit all three targets is the winner.



This is the second lesson of our Art Unit: Mythological Paintings.

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

Art Lesson 2


I have also made a video that you could watch. I go through the SMART carefully and give you any instructions you need to complete the lesson. This is linked below:

Any questions that you come across you could write down some answers or discuss them with someone at home. Make sure that you continue to read over the Knowledge Organiser every lesson.

Task One: You will make a picture over the next few weeks representing part of the Minotaur story.

Today you will make your background which will be the maze.

The minotaur is often referred to as living in a labyrinth but that we will draw a maze as it is easier to construct. (A maze is has many paths but a labyrinth has only a single, non-branching path, which leads to the centre.)

We are going to go to work through the following link which will show and help us draw a maze:

You will need A4 paper, a pencil, a ruler (you will need to rule straight lines and create different branches off your maze) and (if you can) a black felt tip pen (to go over your pencil lines at the end).



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

Miss Daglish
