Year 4 20.4.20

Year 4 w/c 20.4.20

Welcome back! It is now our summer term and we hope you all had a restful Easter with your families. We are also launching our new topic for the term:  Blast off – a journey into space!

For this term years 4, 5 and 6 are going to be working collaboratively on our topic activities. We appreciate how difficult it is trying to home school and work from home, sharing technology etc. Therefore, we thought if the topic activities were the same it would help families where there are siblings and parents working from home as the same activity could be done at the same time together, when it is most suitable for you.  Also, by doing them in any order throughout the week, it gives you greater flexibility as a family.


This week is all about rounding. As has become normal for us, on google classroom you will find the bronze, silver and gold activity with any links and/or PowerPoints that you will need to complete the activity.

Remember to try and spend at least 15 minutes a day on TTblast improving you times tables – they really are vital to everything we do.


Today's task is all about recapping some spelling rules that we worked on in the Autumn Term. The rest of the week we will then be creating an advertising leaflet based on an imaginary planet called "Pandora". Try asking your family if they can find any leaflets around the house that might be able to help (they often come inside magazines).

Please also remember the importance of reading daily, both independently and to someone else in your house (when they have time to sit quietly with you).


We have put five topic activities for the week on google classroom. Normally we would say complete them in any order but just for this week you will need to start your moon diary and exercise diary today so that you can fit it all in. After that they can be completed in any order.


These will be set on a Monday – learn them throughout the week and then get somebody at home to test you on a Friday.

Welsh for the week

We are continuing our work on pets this week. Think about how you would describe yourself e.g. Mae llygaid glas 'da fi. Mae gwallt brown 'da fi. Now transfer that to describing a friend Mae llygaid glas 'da fe / Mae llygaid glas 'da hi. We can now use the describing a friend to help describe our pet (if you don't have one you can imagine having a pet of your choice).  Write a paragraph describing your pet and then draw it.  The following vocabulary will help you.

Stay safe, look after your families and enjoy your learning!
