Year 4 Home Learning Wednesday 3rd June

Good Morning Everyone!


I hope you are all doing well. I am really missing being in the classroom with you all.


Here is your work for today:


English – Yesterday you watched the launch of the Crew Dragon Capsule and wrote a diary entry about how you might feel if you were an astronaut arriving on the International Space Station. Today, I’d like you think about writing a letter home to someone special from the International Space Station. Astronauts can spend up to 6 months on the ISS which is a very long time! How you think you would feel? First decide who to write to and then make some quick notes to answer the questions below. You might want to do some research to find out what life is like on the ISS – what do they eat? How do they go to the toilet? How do they stay clean? How do they go to bed? What kind of jobs do they do? Use your notes as a plan as you will be writing your full letter tomorrow.


1, Who are you going to write to?

2. What is life like being on the ISS?

3. How do you feel being so far away from home?

4. What is good about being on the ISS?

5. What is bad about being on the ISS?

Maths – Yesterday you watched a video all about angles and then searched for angles in your home. Today, I’ like you to have a go at this game. Use the picture below to remind you of the different types of angle:

Science – Today I have another challenge for you! We have been learning all about how sound travels. First, recap how sound travels. You might want to watch this video again to remind you.

What is Sound?

If you enjoyed this video, you will also love the science videos from our friends at They make science videos and lesson...

Now, can you explain why sound can not travel in a vacuum? A vacuum is a space which contains no matter – not even air molecules. Email me your answers on PurpleMash!


Have a great day!
