Year 4 Home Learning Menu

Take a look at the learning ideas menu below. Pick one at a time that you and your child would like to work on. Take your time to explore this idea and develop it into a mini project with your child. If you can, upload any work onto your hwb accounts.

 

Oracy

 

Read a story to a family member. Either to a younger brother or sister, a grown-up who needs cheering up, or why not facetime an elderly relative and read to them?

Reading

 

Read 10 books from https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/our-recommendations/100-best-books/

Maths

 

Learn your tables. (Year 4 children should know all your tables from 2s to 12s).

 

Keep practising addition, subtraction, multiplication and division (show your parents how we do it).

 

Learn to tell the time.

Creative

 

Create a sculpture of a building, an animal or object. (You can even use Minecraft for this)

 

Create a song/rap about something.

 

Draw or paint the view from your window or a portrait of a family member in the style of Picasso.

The world

 

When we can travel again, where would you like to visit in the world? Create a fact file about that country.

Can you include maps or charts (like we did with our extreme weather report)?

Ethical

 

Write a letter or email to an elderly relative or neighbour who might need cheering up at the moment.

Keeping Fit

 

Create a fitness routine for you and your family to do in the house or the garden to keep yourselves healthy. Do it daily! Perhaps you could share this with your friends on-line?

Wales

 

Aliens have landed! Create a brochure about Wales and Welsh traditions to show off our country. Can you include some welsh words?

 

Writing

 

Create a story (or even a book!)

Choose from

  • The Runaway Bus
  • A scary story (like Frankenstein)

Or make up your own!

Science/Cooking

 

Create your own science experiment from around the home, for example

something about our bodies?

How long does a food item last?

 

Upload your findings onto hwb.

Digital

 

Make a news report about your situation – life at home for you and your family at the moment.

 

Watch a film and upload a film review onto your hwb account.

Health/Wellbeing

 

Create a poster or leaflet informing others how to keep healthy and fit in the home.

Enterprising

 

Continue with your project that you were given for homework a couple of weeks ago, (a 5-minute presentation on your choice of topic). You can share with us when we are back in school.

Invention

 

Create a new board game and teach your family the rules.

 

 

 

Relationships

 

At this time being kind to others is so important. Can you look for ways to be kind to your family members? Fill in a chart to show what you have done.

Life skill

 

Learn to master a skill that you have struggled with:

Eg, tying a shoelace, learn to cook, learn a new instrument, perhaps even organise your bedroom so that it is neat and tidy every day.
