Home learning for 3rd June 2020


Hello Year 4, 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 3.


The 5 children are all in one class even though they are different ages. There are only 5 children in KS2!!

  • Finn is an outcast, he has no friends and hasn’t had a brilliant childhood.
  • Charlie is a little bit aggressive and controlling. He is quite bully like as he has a temper.
  • Kyla and Dougie are brother and sister- their mum is very over-protective. Kyla always thinks the worst in situations and is very dramatic. Dougie is quite young and immature.
  • Amir is quite intelligent. His mum is the teacher.
  • Jas is thoughtful and tries to include Finn when she can.


THINK about the following questions:

  • Why is Charlie jealous/angry with/of Finn?
  • How will the children feel about Finn’s disappearance?
  • Who was to blame?
  • Can you think of any other stories where there is a rivalry/jealousy between characters?


Today we are looking at complex sentences. They sound like compound, but they are different. It means that a sentence (which makes sense on its own) has a little bit of information added to it with a subordinating conjunction. We have learnt a lot about subordinating clauses. The subordinating clause is the extra information, which doesn’t make sense on its own. The PowerPoint is really informative.

Today we are looking at triangles. We know that triangles are 3 sided shapes (with straight lines), but there are actually different names for different triangles!


Polygon: another word for shape with at least 3 straight sides and angles. It does not have any curved lines and all lines must be joined.

Equilateral trainable: all sides and angles are the same

Isosceles triangle: two sides and angles are the same

Scalene: no sides or angles are the same


(Use the PowerPoint to help you learn this new terminology) 


For the last question on the sheet, you can work out the length of one of the sides of the square and then use that for all the sides of the triangle, as it is an equilateral and therefore has equal sides!

I have found another cool educational song!



Today we are looking at solid liquid and gases. We have briefly spoken about this already this year, but flick through the PowerPoint to remind yourself. The PowerPoint will tell you when to complete the separate work sheets,


Solid: firm and stable in shape

Liquid: substance than flows freely, but always remains the same amount.

Gas: no fixed shape and no fixed volume
