Year 4 Easter Holidays Homework

Good Morning Everyone!


As it is you Easter Holidays, I won’t be posting daily tasks for you to complete.

However, I do have a challenge for you to complete over the next couple of weeks!


A time capsule is something which captures memories for us to look back on in the future. Since this is such a different time which we will think about for a long time, I thought it would be a great time to create a time capsule.

Find a box or envelope to store your memories in. You could use your plastic folder which you were given with your Home Learning books.

Add memories into the box with your family. I have included some ideas below.


  • A photo, drawing or painting of your family.
  • A newspaper article
  • A poster all about you – what is your favourite colour, band, tv programme etc?
  • A short diary entry explaining how you feel, what you are enjoying about being at home and what you are missing about school.
  • What you are doing to keep busy
  • Handprints
  • An Interview with your grownups
  • A letter from your parents
  • An Easter craft, painting, card or photo
  • What kind of things you are doing to stay connected – rainbows in windows, video calling family, writing letters, clapping for Key workers etc.


Decide as a family when you will look at the Time Capsule again (e.g. 1 year, 5 years or even longer!) Ask a grown up to hide it somewhere safe in the house.

Have fun! This should be an exciting task for all of the family! Add anything into the box that you want to. This is your Family Time Capsule.

Don’t forget to spend time together, play games, watch tv, play outside and enjoy your Easter Eggs!

Happy Easter!
