Year 4 Home Learning - Week 4 (27th April - 1st May)

Click the links for the English and Maths tasks each day. Watch the videos, make notes if you would like to and complete the activities underneath the videos. You can print out the activity sheets or write down your answers on paper or in your home learning journal.


Don't forget, children can still use Mathletics, Reading Eggspress and Times Table Rockstars freely.





Day 1

Complete a Reading Eggspress activity or read a chapter of a book.




If you are unable to access the lesson, recap types of pronouns and how they are used. Write sentences with a balance of nouns and pronouns.

Tenths and hundredths

Week 1 Lesson 1



If you are unable to access the lessons, create your own decimals with tenths and hundredths. Can you represent them as fractions and decimals?

0.66 Is the same as 66/100

or 6 tenths and 6 hundredths.

Can you show them as part whole models?

Day 2

Read a book of your choice for 20 minutes. Can you summarise it to someone?

Verb Families



If you are unable to access the lesson, write down as many verbs as you can think of. Can you change the tense of the verbs from past to present tense?

Tenths as decimals

Week 1 Lesson 2



If you are unable to access the lesson, create a number line to represent tenths in a whole. Can you then write the numbers as fractions and decimals?



Can you think of any other way to represent tenths?

Day 3

Ask an adult to use the questions in your personal organiser to ask you about what you have just read.

Fronted Adverbials




Once you have finished, have a go at writing sentences with fronted adverbials – remember the comma! E.g. 'As the moon hung in the night sky, the small town was silent.'

Tenths on a place value grid

Lesson 3 homelearning/year-4/


Using ten counters (you can draw these on paper), how many different decimals can you make using the grid below? Then create stem sentences to show your decimals.

The decimal is 2.1

There are 2 ones

There is 1 tenth



Day 4

When you are reading, try to find the meaning of any unknown words by finding the root word, reading on or using a dictionary.

Expanded Noun Phrases



If you are unable to access the lesson, have a go at writing your own expanded noun phrases. E.g. The small, delicate feather, on the luscious grass danced in the gentle breeze.

Tenths on a number line

Lesson 4 homelearning/year-4/


Draw some number lines and label them with tenths. Here are some examples.

Create a blank number line and estimate the position of these decimals.

0.4     0.6     0.9     0.2

1.4     1.7     1.5     1.1

Now create your own.

Day 5

Try to read something new! This could be the type of text e.g. newspaper or the genre e.g. mystery.

Friday Challenge!


Using the picture in the link, write an engaging story opening or description using everything you have learned this week; fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases, verbs and pronouns!


Game time!

Place Value Battle

 (For 2 or more players)


Each player should draw a set of four squares next to each other on a piece of paper, as if you were going to write a four-digit number.


Take it in turns to roll a die and write it on their chosen place value square. The aim of the game is to be the player with the greatest four-digit number at the end of the game. Good luck!

Throughout the week, once you have completed the Reading, English and Maths tasks, choose activities from the second grid below.​


Before you do any research, make a mind map (like in school) of everything you already know about how sound works and how it is made. How can we make sound quieter and louder? How does a sound change as you move closer to it or further away? How do we change the pitch of a sound? How can we use air to make music?

Sound – Lesson 2 Let’s begin to find out how sound works.



How can I be a historian?



Let’s spend some time on our mapping skills.



Hello Year 4!

This term in RE we are going to be looking at Places of Worship.

To start us off I would like you to think about a place that you love to go, somewhere that makes you feel happy. Maybe it’s somewhere at home or school, or a place you visited for a special occasion. Draw a picture of your special place and use your senses to describe what it is like - what could you hear/ touch/ smell/ taste/ see there? How does this place make you feel?

Have fun! Mrs Westall


Grab a piece of paper and some colouring pens/pencils. Play your favourite song. How does this song make you feel? Start to sketch a scene or picture that matches the mood of the music. Then, choose colours to colour in your sketch. How has your favourite song influenced your art?


In this lesson, we are going to learn about where Spanish is spoken in the world, the Spanish alphabet and recap numbers 1-10.

The importance of developing teamwork:


Hi Year 4! This week we are looking at digimaps again.

I would like you to find out how our local area has changed over time.

To do this, first log in to digimaps for school, using the username ha40lr  (remember the 0 is a zero) and password: smides7219
Then once you are in, pick a location. You could pick your house, school or a local landmark, like the Sainsburys or Asda in South Ruislip. Once you have found your landmark, zoom in and use the map selector tool to switch between now, the 1950s and the 1890s.

Can you find 3 differences between how it was and how it is now? Tell someone in your house how the local area has changed. Do you think it has changed for the worse or for the better? Why?

Why do you think it has changed so much?
If you can't get the map selector tool to work, it is because it only works on certain levels of zoom. Try zooming in more to a specific point on the map.

Have fun! Mrs Fraser.


Create a poster to show all the musical terminology you have learnt so far this year! Make it as colourful and artistic as you can and try to find somewhere to display it in your home. Fit in as many words as you can but don't worry if you don't have space for all of them. The music powerpoint (see below) for this week will give you some clues to help you remember what all of the words mean.
