Introduction to year 4 

Year 4 Curriculum Overview

If you have any questions or queries, please contact me on: t.mcknight@st-lawrence.lancs.sch.uk 

Unfortunately, we're back to home learning. Luckily, it will only be for 2 weeks. 
For today, I will set work on here so please complete what you can. I will do a 9.30am zoom call starting tomorrow explaining what will happen tomorrow and then set the work from that for the day.  

I will be setting extra work on My Maths and Spag.com which are both fantastic resources to use. I have set some for the usual homework for today so please check that. I will keep you informed when other things have been set on there. 
There are also games to use on My Maths which can help with learning too.
Please use the Times tables rockstars as well as much as possible as the scores people are getting at the minute are fantastic and I don't want that to drop.

If you are on IDL or reading plus, please use this to your advantage to complete as many of them as you can. Ideally, 1 a day would be perfect but please do more if you can. 

If I'm uploading a worksheet on here, please don't think you have to print it off. If you can then great but if not, please just write the questions down in a separate piece of paper. 

I've also just signed up to a website called Learning by questions (LBQ) which is also an incredible resource for remote learning.


click the link above and type in the code jii, plus your name and there are tasks that I've set on there too. I'll do this as a trial run today to see if it's easy to access and easy to work.

Work for today:
Thursday 26th November 2020

English - L.O - To recap on expanded noun phrases and fronted adverbials. 

Please read the worksheets and have a go at recapping on what we've looked at a lot over recent weeks.
With the fronted adverbials sheet, once you've matched them up to the correct sections write as many sentences as you can to go with each one.

Maths - L.O - to add and subtract using different methods. 

Over the last few weeks we have gone over column addition and subtraction in different ways. Take a look at the worksheet for today and solve the question on it either mentally or using the column method. Once you finish, write some questions of your own to solve and have a go at writing some word problems too of your own. 

Extra resources to look at. 

1) Please access your first lesson on Reading Plus (see letter sent home for details) This should be a daily activity as there are 5 tasks set each week. I will be keeping track of this to ensure that people are using it daily as it is a fantastic resource to use. 

2) L.O. To summarise events from more than 1 paragraph
Choose a book to read from the Oxford Owl website. You can find an book appropriate to the level of your child by using the 'filter by book band' button.
Summarize the book using a story map. Draw pictures to describe the key events and write a sentence to match.

Spelling and handwriting
 Access the Year 3/4 spellings below and choose 5 words each day to find both the definition of and write the word in a sentence so that should be 10 sentences. 
Children can also practice writing the 5 words in their neatest handwriting using the cursive technique. 


Please sign up to TES which is a free teaching resource it just requires an email address and download the link below. These can be completed daily as there is a number of tasks to be completed. 


1) Learn the times table that you are currently working on. There are plenty of resources available on the following websites to help:

2) L.O. To tell the time to the nearest minute and in 12 and 24 hours.

Access the worksheet below and have a go at completing the questions.

Also try these worksheets that are a little more difficult 


L.O - To convert time between 24hour and 12 hour clocks. 

Here are some word problems that can also be completed after the first task:

Below is also a great board game that could be played for telling the time.

Year 4 Multiplication Check 
From 2020, every Year 4 pupil must take a statutory multiplication tables check. The Department for Education has produced an information leaflet for parents. This has been sent home with pupils and an e-copy is available on the following link: 

This is a fantastic opportunity for your child to practice as many times tables as possible and also complete the multiplication check on https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/
This can also be an opportunity to consolidate learning in as many times tables as possible and children can create their own spreadsheet on Microsoft Excel (if possible) to keep tabs on their daily score.
