Good morning Year 4!


We are so disappointed not to be on our trip to Maidstone Museum this morning, but we hope you are all safe at home. Our trip has been rescheduled so we will still get to explore the amazing Egyptian artefacts later in the term.


For today, we have set you an English and Maths task to complete at home. You don't need to print anything out and will just need a pencil and paper. 


If you wanted some additional tasks, you could go on to TTRS to practise your times tables and Spelling Shed for this week's spelling assignment. 


We look forward to seeing you back in school again tomorrow smiley




The focus for today's learning will be writing grammatically accurate statements and questions.


Look at the examples below. What is a statement? How is a statement punctuated?



Look at the examples below. What is a question? How is a question punctuated?



Today, we would like you to find out a bit more about our topic 'Pharaohs'.

You have been set a book to read on Epic! Books (If this book is above your ZPD level, you can press the play button and the book will be read to you).




Follow the instructions below to access the book:

Class code for Banksy Class: nbu9385

Class code for Steinlen Class: vqm9345


When you have read the book, write 5 interesting facts that you have learnt about the ancient Egyptians. Make sure that you punctuate each statement with a capital letter and a full stop. Also check the spelling of topic words. 


Now write at least two questions that you would like to find answers to. Remember to punctuate your questions with a capital letter and a question mark. You may use sentences starters from the question hand: Who? What? When? Where? Why? How?



In maths today, we would like you to practise adding 3-digit numbers. To help you remember the steps needed for column method, click on the link below and watch the video. Then follow example 1 and example 2.

Then complete the activities below:



Can you have a go at using column method to solve the calculation on a piece of paper?


Or we can use near doubles as a mental method. Let's have a look at how we could do this:



I know Double 350 = 700


Now I will need to add on the ones. 8 + 5 = 13 and 700 + 13 = 713


So 358 + 355 = 713
