Morning Year 4 :-) 


Miss Chapman has uploaded some suggestions on the Additional Resources-Physical Education page on what you can do to keep active! Why not take a look and plan out one of these for you to do today? 


Word of the day:  mission  


- Find out what it means and write the definition in your own words!  
- What is its word class?  

- Make a list of synonyms and antonyms  

- Can you use it in an interesting sentence? 

Are you able to use it, appropriately, when you are speaking or in any of your writing opportunities?  


0900 - 0930 - Reading 

Look in your home learning pack at the 7 different comprehension questions you have.  Answer the questions below in sentences into your book.  If you haven't finished the book yet, just write about what you have read so far!

1. What is the title and author of the book?

2. In one sentence, what is the story about? 

3. Describe the setting of the story.

4. Who are the characters in the story? Describe them!

5. Who is telling the story? 

6. In five sentences, retell the main parts of the story.

7. Did you/Are you enjoying the book? Give reasons for your answer. 


0930 - 1030 - Maths  -  

Let's keep those amazing brains of yours moving with some quick fire questions. Use this website

You can chose the level and the area that you want to be quizzed on.


We are also going to practise a times table every day. We will start with 3x table.


Today we are going to be practising our column subtraction. Key points to remember here are that when we are writing the question out in our books we have to make sure that the hundreds are in the same column, the tens and the ones as well. Al say to yourself top number subtract lower one and not the other way around. If you chose the spicy or hot challenges, you will need to exchange sometimes. This video will help you if you need a quick reminder. There will also be some word problems.


1030 - 1100 - Break  


1100 - 1115 - Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar 

It is preposition time!  


1115 - 1200 - English 

The Frog Prince finally got his happily ever after … or did he?  

In the document below, you will find a picture of him. He is sat where he has always wanted to be, in his beloved pond on one of his precious lily pads!  

The question is, what do you think he is daydreaming about?  


1200 - 1300 - Lunch 


1300 - Enquiry

Use the Hold a Domesday Survey document to carry out a household survey. What type of home do you live in? How many rooms does it have? Who lives there and how old are they? What job do they do? Get a parent's permission to contact friends and carry out the survey with them. Are there any other questions you would like to ask? Collect your data using the tables provided.


Look at the Illuminated Manuscripts powerpoint. What are they? Which ancient language does the word 'illuminated' derive from? Look at the example letters for inspiration when you create your very own Domesday Book.


Visit for instructions on how to make your pages look very old.


Use the Make Your Own Illuminated Manuscript instructions document to help you create your very own Domesday Book. Use the data you have collected. It may take a couple of afternoons to do this well.

See documents below for full task.


More exciting things to come tomorrow,  

Mr Woodsell, Miss Chapman and Mrs Lee :-)
