Grammar Activity


There are two short grammar activities to complete – one for Wednesday and one for Thursday. These can be printed out, answered in books or simply discussed.


Today, I would like you to listen to a new text. 

(I have given you two links so that you can have experience of two different readers.)

Can you work out the link to our Science?

What is your initial reaction to this text? If you had to describe it in just three words, what would you say?

How do the pictures compliment the text? Would the words have the same effect without them?

Who might enjoy this kind of text? 

In your opinion, which of the readers made the text most enjoyable? Give a reason for your opinion.

Reading Journal Activity

Each day this week, you will be given a short text and comprehension on how to care for a range of animals. Choose an appropriate level of challenge. (Remember that one star is the most straightforward and three stars means the text and questions are more challenging.)

You may either print out the appropriate answer sheet or simply write the answers in your home-learning book.


This week’s Maths is all about area. The power point will take you through each step and then there is a worksheet to complete. If you would like any extra work or information on this, then check out Oak Academy (Year 4 Maths – Area).


I have also included a quick starter and a true or false reasoning activity.


All of the information you need is included below. Consider how our parish community supports each other in difficult times.
