Due in on Tuesday 5th June
Mrs Jones’ Set – Title – Can I multiply using the column method?
This week we have been learning how to multiply using the column method. Please complete as many sums as you can from the sheet, writing as neatly as you can in your books. Do your best!
Miss Weston’s Set
This week we have looked at multiplication. I would like you to practise using the methods we have learnt to multiply the numbers given to you. Use a ruler for your lines and add a neat date and title.
Make sure you are also learning your times tables every day. We will be doing Cracking Times Tables on Monday! It is vital that you keep practising and improving on your scores.
Title – Can I write an informal letter?
This week we have been learning about informal letters. You have planned and written your own! For homework, we would like you to write an informal letter addressed to us! You must talk about your weekend, ask us some questions and write in a chatty/informal way. You must include your address, and write who the letter is to or from. You may also want to include emotions! You must spend 20 minutes on this piece of homework – the amount you write will confirm how long you have spent on this because we know what you are capable of achieving in class.
Please use your best handwriting and remember to include the long date and title. Please underline both.
As usual, we expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading each week in your Home School Book. We will be collecting Home School Books in on Tuesday after half term! Please make sure you get an adult to sign your book. Remember you could be reader of the week!
Have a lovely half term!

After half term, we will be beginning our topic of ‘water’ in Geography. One of the aspects we will be looking at is flooding.
Over half term, we would like you to research one of the most famous UK flooding incidents below and create a fact file on paper. This can be done by hand, or on the computer.
Floods to choose from:
Boscastle, Cornwall – August 2004
Bournemouth, Dorset – August 2011
Clovelly, Devon – October 2012
We would like you to find out the answers to the following questions:
- Where did the flood happen?
- What caused the flood?
- What were the physical effects of the flooding? (E.g. did it cause disruption to power lines, the coast line?)
- How were humans affected? (E.g. were people’s homes flooded? Were people stranded? Did anyone get injured or even die?)
- Did people try and stop the flood? How?
- Has the area done anything special to now try and prevent the flooding from happening again?
Think carefully about how you could present your work in an exciting way – could it be a poster? A leaflet? Could it have flaps and pop out bits? Could you add photos or illustrations?
You will be presenting your work in front of the class this term so it is important you understand what you have written – any research that you find must be written in your OWN words. You may need to include a glossary for those trickier words!
As usual, we expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading in your Home School Book. We will be checking this! We will be awarding 3 blue cards to 3 children in each class, who have tried a new book and challenged themselves. We are also looking for exciting comments!
Have a lovely half term! Be happy, have fun and stay safe! Not long left of Year 4!

We have been working on angles. For homework you will be practising measuring angles and so will need a protractor. Some of you have the wonky house sheet where you need to find and measure different angles and some of you have a sheet where you need to estimate and measure angles. Complete answers on the sheet and stick into your homework book.
Miss White’s set
You have angles to measure and draw. Remember to place the bulls-eye on the point and the 0 line on one side of the angle. Read the right scale! Use a sharp pencil.
In PHSE we have looked at the environmental impact of single use plastic. For your homework we want you to get creative! We want you to collect the plastic you would normally recycle and then turn it in to something amazing. Ask an adult to help you make sure the plastic is washed and clean.
These websites show some imaginative things which can be done with used plastic.
Could you make a pencil holder, a collage piece of art work, a plastic bouquet of flowers, a bird feeder or a plant pot? We want you to create something small but of quality. You can also use paper, paint, buttons, fabrics, decoupage etc. Good luck with your green design project! Bring the result in after half term.
As you worked so hard over the Easter holiday, we would like to give you this half term off from any big homework tasks.
There are two things however which will still need to be worked on during your week off.
- Please make sure you are reading and filling in your HSB with comments, page numbers and an adult signature.
- Learning lines/song words for our production (most/if not all of you will know your parts by Friday)
If you find yourself bored, you can always practise your creative writing and sentence construction. We will be focusing on this and handwriting a lot next half term.
