Working together, learning together


Year 4 Home Learning Thursday 21st May

Good Morning everyone!


I hope you all enjoyed the sunshine yesterday.


Here is your work for today:


English – Today we will continue to work on our sentence structure.


I’d like you to look out of your window, sit in your garden or go for a walk. Think about all of the things you can see, feel, smell and hear – write down as many ideas you can think of – e.g. birds tweeting, sun beaming down, clear blue skies.


Now use these ideas to write 5 sentences. Try to include at least on of the skills below in each sentence.


  1. Fronted Adverbial – Beneath my feet, the tall, green grass swayed in the breeze.
  2. Adverb – The birds were singing sweetly in the tall, oak tree.
  3. Simile – The daisies danced like ballerinas in the field.
  4. Expanded noun phrase – High above the treetops, small birds with colourful feathers swooped around.
  5. Prepositional phrase – As the sun beamed in the sky, the children laughed and played.
  6. Conjunction – While the children played in the sunshine, the grown ups enjoyed their peace and quiet.


Maths – Today, I’d like you to practise your multiplication and division skills. I have added some videos for you to watch if you need some help.





  1. 42 x 3 =
  2. 34 x 5 =
  3. 8 x 60 =
  4. 453 ÷ 4 =
  5. 637 ÷ 3 =




Topic – This video will tell you a bit about Ancient Egyptian civilization and what Ancient Egyptian’s believed in.


Use the video and the website below to find out about Ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses.


Design your own Ancient Egyptian God or Goddess – what would they be the God of? What animal would represent this?


You can ask a grown up to post a picture on our school Facebook page or you can email me a photo on Purplemash!

PSHE – Choose an activity from the list below:


  • Write a letter to a friend or relative to tell them what you have been up to in the last few weeks
  • Make a list of 10 things you want to do when lockdown is over
  • Make a list of 10 things you are grateful for
  • Ask a grown up if there is anything you can do to help in the house


Have a great day!
