Year 4 – Home Learning 25/1/21

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.

In addition, we will be having another Zoom this week at 2pm for the children. This will be on Wednesday 27th January. 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:

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!)

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).

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 – Using the resource sheets provided, choose ONE of the Ancient Olympic sports to learn more about. You will need to read the information carefully (you could also do your own research if you wanted to).

  2. Write 4-5 sentences about your chosen sport explaining what it is, how it was played and any other interesting facts you learn.

A blank Purple Mash document has been set in your 2dos if you would like to complete this task online. In the document, you can add your own text boxes and picture boxes.
