Good morning Year 4!
How’s everyone today? Good, I hope!
Well after a bumpy start with our website yesterday, I know many of you may not have managed to finish your work. So today I’m only setting two pieces of work for you – Maths and History – so you have time to complete your work from yesterday. However, I have provided an optional link to a PE session with Joe Wicks, in case you still have energy to burn off when you are finished 🙂 and a list of websites with additional activities where you can do anything from practising your times tables, learn a new language or simply read a selection of books.
Remember to send pictures of the work you have completed today to firstname.lastname@example.org by 8pm this evening. Thanks!
In yesterday’s work we practised rounding to the nearest 10, and today we are going to practise rounding to the nearest 100. Watch and listen to the video below carefully, pausing and completing your worksheet (below) when asked.
Today, we are going to start our new history topic – The Vikings. Hooray I hear you all shout! Perhaps you will find out that your family is related to Vikings… wouldn’t that be great 🙂
Task 1: The first thing I would like you to do today is watch the following videos which introduce you to the Vicious Vikings!
Remember how we learned to make notes? Make sure you have a piece of paper and pencil so you can make notes as you listen. You can pause the video to make sure you get the important information you hear down on paper.
Task 2: Next, open the presentation below and read through it carefully, don’t worry if you don’t remember everything, just take your time. Once you’ve done this, open the timeline document below and see if you can put the dates in chronological order (time order) starting from the earliest date first.
Task 3: Your final task today is to write a short piece imagining that you are a Viking. You’ve set sail in your longboat to raid Britain back in AD787 (over 1,200 years ago!) and you’re looking for gold, jewels and important manuscripts. You’re prepared to kill anyone who gets in your way!
How do you feel? What might the journey have been like? What are you wearing? What do the people of Britain think of you? Be as creative as you like, using the knowledge you learned in the videos. Remember to write neatly and include all of the skills we’ve learned in school. I’ve included a writing template for you to write on if you are able to print it off.
And finally, here’s a link to a PE session with Joe Wicks if you’re still up for it!

Bye for now,
