Year 4 Home Learning

What can you do while school is closed?

Here is your homework

Each week, we will add a list of activities for you to do at home. Click on it to open it up. All the instructions and links that you need will be there.

Your teachers would love to hear from you. Down below, you can find a link where you can send work in each week for them to look at. You can send up to three pieces of work at a time - a piece of English, a piece of Maths, and one other.

Wonderful Work

Each week, we'll be showcasing some of the wonderful work that children send in. We can't display it all, but we'd like to celebrate the effort that everyone is putting in while they are working at home.


Children should spend some time reading for enjoyment every day. They might be reading comics, or poetry, or encyclopedias or novels. They might be reading on screens or on paper. It doesn't really matter, as long as they try to understand and think about what they are reading.

Reading out loud is really important, not so much to test if they can read the words, but to help them understand what they are reading and to share their thoughts about it with someone else. They should aim to read to someone at home at least three times a week.

Reading to children is also really important and enjoyable, even when they are fluent readers themselves.


Spelling Logs

Children are used to making a note in their log book of words they need to learn. While they are at home, they can still do this, even though they may not have their logbook. If they have to look up a spelling when they are doing some writing, or if they come across an interesting word when they are reading, they can make a note, and choose a few words each week to practice.

Children should also try and learn all of the words on the list of "common exception words". These are words which don't necessarily follow a common spelling pattern, but they are common words which everyone should know how to spell.



Children are encouraged to learn all of their times tables by the end of Year 4. We have a tables test every week.

You can practice at home by working through the Tables Whizz sheets. See if you can beat your previous best time, and get all the right answers.
