Year 4 Home Learning – Monday 18th May

Happy Monday Year 4!

I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend.

This week in English we are going to be reading a story called Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters, which is an African tale. Today’s activities include comprehension and looking at character descriptions. As always, remember to read the instructions carefully before starting each task.

English – Comprehension and Character Descriptions

ANSWERS – English

In Maths, we continue our work on decimals by looking at tenths on a number line. Please watch this short video first (scroll down to week 1 – not summer term week 1 – and go to Lesson 4), before attempting the work. And remember, if you get stuck (and you really have tried your very best), have a look at the answers and challenge yourself to work out to get to that answer.

Maths – tenths on a number line



This week we are looking at words ending with ‘tion’. At some point during the week I would like you to write each of these words into a sentence, so if you need to, look up the meaning in the dictionary. Get someone to test you on Friday, or test yourself by simply looking at a word then turning over the page and writing it down from memory.

Extra activity

How do you fancy becoming a secret spy or a code breaker? Morse Code is a detailed system of dots, dashes and spaces used to represent numbers, punctuation and letters of the alphabet. It was particularly used in the Second World War as a way to communicate without the ability or need to use actual characters. The activity sheet below introduces you to the Morse Code alphabet and then has decoding activities for you… perhaps you could send me a coded message, when you’re finished 🙂

Have a fun day everyone!

Take care,

Mrs Myers
