Home learning for 2ndJune 2020


Hello Year 4, I hope that you are enjoying The Song of the Dolphin Boy! I have outlined your tasks for today. Let me know if you have any worries or concerns.



Let’s start off the day with a little bit of activity! Decide if you would like to join in with Joe Wickes, practise some dances on GoNoddle, do a little bit of yoga on Cosmic Kids or practise your times tables simultaneously with Super Movers! You can access the links on the Year 4 home page.


Chapter of the day:

Have a listen to chapter 2. I’m sorry –there are two clips for some reason!



THINK about the following questions:

  • Why is Mr McFee unhappy with Finn swimming?
  • Why do you think Finn hasn’t already learnt to swim?
  • How do you think the Selkie poem might link with the rest of the story?
  • What do you think a selkie might look like?


Today we are looking at compound sentences. Compound sentences are sentences where two simple, short sentences have been joined together with a conjunction. When both sentences would make sense on their own, it is called a co-ordinating conjunction. By creating compound sentences, it adds a bit of variety to a piece of writing and also joins ideas together.  The PowerPoint is really helpful and gives you lots of activities to try.

This is a good way to remember the co-ordinating conjunctions:


Today we are going to compare and order angles. This means we must decide which ones are larger and which ones are smaller. In Year 4, you do not need to use any equipment to help you do this.


The words you need to be aware of today are:

Ascending: going up (the angles go up in size order)

Interior: inside (the angles inside the shape)


In maths questions, they label each angle with a letter, so it is easy to compare them.


Today we are looking at our new topic of Change. We all have to deal with change at certain times and we all have different ways of dealing with change. Today, is your chance to work out what helps you when your teacher changes, when you move up a group in swimming, when the desks move around in the classroom, when your parents cook a new meal etc.
