Today’s Activities


Today begins with English activities, followed by Maths and finally Topic, which today is History.



We are now really getting the hang of using apostrophes. Today we will be watching two videos about using apostrophes for contraction and possession, then applying what we have learnt to complete the tasks. Please look at Tuesday GPS Activity to find the tasks and the link to the videos on BBC Bitesize.  There is no need to print out the questions (unless you would like to of course!), you can write your answers down on paper.



Your parents will have found a letter on the school website introducing our new spelling format, Letter Join, which will contain your login details. Once you've logged in using that letter, follow the instructions on the attached Yr 4 LETTER JOIN guide to access the task we would like you to complete.


For the first of our two handwriting sessions this week, on Tuesday and Thursday, we'd like you to follow these instructions and practise the letters b, p, k.  You can use a tablet or a computer, and you are very welcome to explore this website a bit more to see what else you can do!

Writing Activity    

Today you will be looking at Arthur’s dangerous sea voyage to the Norse World.

Today’s lesson is all about working out area by counting squares. Watch https://vimeo.com/500381471 which explains how to do this a bit more and then have a go at the maths activity sheet below.  Complete as many questions as you can, but please don’t worry if there are ones you are not sure of.

 Topic (History)

In today's lesson, we are going to be exploring the cause, consequence and impact of the Anglo-Saxon invasion of Britain. Why did the Anglo-Saxons come to Britain? How was Britain split into kingdoms? What was everyday life like for the Anglo-Saxon settlers? Read through the information about how the Anglo-Saxons came to settle in Britain  Anglo-Saxon Information Pdf ​and then complete the task. You will be creating an information sheet about Anglo-Saxon life, which may include facts about homes, beliefs, clothing, jewellery and lots more. Your information sheet can include images, drawings and text to share what you have found. You will find some very useful links to websites on the pdf. We look forward to seeing what you find out!                                                                              


Have a great home learning Tuesday.
