Year 4 Work for Home
In the event of a school closure or your child having to self-isolate, please refer to the information and links below for assistance and guidance in providing work for your child.
Twinkl provides resources for all areas of learning. To find age appropriate resources type 'Year 4' or 'KS2' into the search bar before the topic you would like resources for. To access a free months trial on Twinkl use 'UKTWINKLHELPS' (www.twinkl.co.uk/offer).
As well as the ideas below, we would like children to really focus on continuing to learn their times tables. Children should also continue to read three times a week.
Try to complete these challenges this week:
- Exercise for 30 minutes every day
- Help to make a healthy lunch or dinner for everyone in your house
- Create a maths problem for someone in your house to solve
A teacher called Gareth Metcalfe will be doing daily maths lessons. Use the link below to access these!

Children could keep a diary of their time at home.
Children could write their own story based upon a book they have read. This might be the next chapter or sequel to the book. Children could plan using the story mountain (found at the bottom of the page). Try to encourage the children to use fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases, pronouns, similes and metaphors, and interesting vocabulary.
Take a look at these links to help the children with placing varying language features into their work:
- Metaphors and similes - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zfkk7ty/articles/z9tkxfr

Please find further resources for spelling and language features at the bottom of this page.
The children should continue to read three times per week. They can continue to read their reading book from school as well as any other books or other reading material you have available. It might be a good idea for the children to write a review about each book that they read, discussing what they liked and disliked about the book. They could then use this to recommend the book to a member of the household.
