Year 4 Home Learning – Monday 20th April

Welcome back everyone!

I hope you all had an enjoyable Easter with your families. I certainly did but I must say I am missing seeing everyone. I’m so pleased we are back together (at least via the website) and I have plenty of fun and challenging activities for you to do this week 🙂

First, some subtraction in Maths, including some challenges where you have to find the missing digit. Followed by some spelling practise in English – use a dictionary or Google to help you if you don’t know how to spell a word.

Maths – subtracting 4 digit numbers

English – Spelling practise

ANSWERS – Maths and English

And remember, if you want to keep improving your story writing skills, the author Frank Cottrell Boyce has done some brilliant writing lessons (Writing Wrinkles) on his Instagram account –

Check them out, or if not just write a story about something of your choice. Remember to use all of the skills we have learnt this year:

  • good punctuation (Capital letters, full stops, commas, question marks, capital letters for names of people and places)
  • apostrophes (to show missing letters when using a contraction – it’s, wouldn’t – and when showing singular and plural possession – The dog’s basket or The babies’ prams)
  • fronted adverbials (to show when, where or how something happened – Today, In the eerily quiet forest, Suddenly…)
  • correct use of speech marks when using dialogue (including punctuation before opening and closing the speech marks – “Get off the grass!” shouted the headmaster, “I have told you it’s not allowed.”)

Have fun and speak tomorrow.

Mrs Myers 🙂
