Good morning year 4! Unfortunately, the snow has prevented you from coming into school today but don’t fear, your teachers are here to save the day! Below are a range of activities you can complete as a part of your remote learning. You don’t have to complete all of them but try to at least complete some! Have fun and don’t forget to allow yourself some time to play in the snow!☃️

(For some of the links, you will need to copy and paste them into the search bar)


English -

  • Write down the features you would find in a non-fiction text (E.g brackets, subordinate clauses, key vocabulary/tier 2 vocabulary) and why you might use them.
  • Draw a picture to represent our tier 2 vocabulary and write their definitions (pitch, volume, dynamics, high, low, loud, quiet, vibration, length, era, compose, yowling)
  • Do some extra research about the violin and make some notes (remember notes are short, snappy and include KEY information). Using these notes create a poster, Try to include any of the features found in a non fiction text!


Maths - 

Test your knowledge of tenths as fractions and decimals:


Round decimals to the nearest whole number. Remember, 5 and above round up:

Converting time  between 12 and 24 hour clock:


Spend some time on TTRockstars!





Science - 

  1. Recap what sound is using these links:


Create a fact file all about sound and how it is produced.


2. Draw/create a sound superhero. What special powers will they have? Can they change the pitch of any sound? Can they make things super loud? Can they create sound vibrations that can be heard from lands far and wide? Try to include some of the key things we have spoken about in science! 


3. If you have the equipment and resources, use this link to help you create a string telephone in line with our topic all about sound:



Reading - 

Children must spend at least 20-30 minutes on reading planet and need to complete at least 1 quiz.

Year 4 Remote learning Jan 5th- 7th


Hi Year 4,


Here is your remote learning for this week if you are isolating - remember, you don't have to complete any work at home if you feel poorly! Make sure your grown ups let the school office know if you are isolating. Mrs Large will check in with them via e-mail over the next few days to check you are all ok.



Year 4 are having a science'ey' week this week, with a focus on circuits 

In class, they are making circuits using practical resources and are identifying whether or not a lamp will light up in a circuit.  


1) Please watch these videos to help with your understanding:


2) Attached is a little activity (Activity 1 -images of circuits) where you look at the circuits and see if the lamp will light up or not (if not, can you draw a new circuit to make the lamp turn on) 


3) Your class will also be looking at electrical safety. Attached is an activity called ‘Electrical Dangers’ where you identify the dangers in a picture. You could complete that and explain why you highlighted the dangers. 


 4) You could then have a go at making an information poster on how to stay safe using electricity – use the picture below as an example to guide you. 



Please read for 20-30 minutes daily. Books at home or Reading Planet is great – whichever you prefer. 



Please spend some time on TT Rockstars!
