Welcome to Year 4!
Year 4 - Home learning survival kit!
Welcome to our new and updated Year 4 web page. I am hoping this will be your go-to for most of your home learning needs! This will provide you with a number of resources, activities and places to search to continue the learning at home.
Now more than ever our Year 4 students will need to continue that growth mindset. This means being determined to carry on our learning even though we are not in the classroom everyday. We must remember that the brain is a muscle and to exercise it, we must learn, learn, learn!

Theme Park Project!!!
This weeks project is based around designing and creating a Theme Park. This involves lots of skills including testing your maths skills, literacy skills and your creativity. Each lesson has it's own presentation to show you what you need to do and give you some context (start with lesson 1!). I'm hope you all enjoy it and feel free to take photos and send pictures of your project into Seesaw. The numbers in this project include millions so it will prepare you for some Year 5 maths. Please feel free to use a calculator though.

Music - Mr Miller
Hello, I hope you are all well.
How did you get on with Over the Rainbow last week? I wonder if any of you managed to play along with the backing video on your doorstep as people clapped for the NHS on Thursday?
Last week I sent a song called Sport for All and I put a little video together showing you how it went. Fantastic if you’ve managed to have a little look over that and learn the song. This week what I’d like us to do is to see if we can sing the pitch of the notes using the Doh and Soh hand signs. Take a look at the video and I’ll be on there, helping you.
As an additional activity, I’ve attached the music, backing track and little videos to help with Tap Dance. This was the last piece we played well before we had to stop going into School.
Here is the music…
Here’s the backing track
a little video to help violin and viola players
and another video for cello players
See you how get on. We learned this piece just after our week 15 concert, so mums and dads haven’t seen this one yet. If you get really good as you practice, maybe you could do them a little performance?
Also, I sent a little video from me and Mr Wallis for you all. We’re playing We’ll meet again.
Have a good week and I’ll be in touch soon with some new things to do.
I hope that you have all had a good week.
Last week I sent you Tap Dance to look at, I wonder if any of you managed to do a little performance for your family? This week I would like you to concentrate on making sure you are standing and sitting properly as you play your instrument and check your bow hold. If you have rosin, it might be a good idea to put some on at the moment.
Please find below a couple of little videos designed to help you remember how to hold your instrument and bow properly
If you could play Chocolate Treats, Strictly or Tap Dance with an amazing bow hold, and your instrument is being held well I would be very impressed!
Also this week, it’s time to try and play Sport for All on our instruments. Please see below the little video to help you. It would be really good if you could go over the previous two videos first, just so that the song is fresh in your mind.
Have a really good week everybody!
I hope that everyone managed to have a practice of Sport For All over half term. This week it’s time to put the piece together with the backing track. I’ve attached a link showing how to play with the music, and I’ve resent the backing track, plus the words for you to refresh your memory. Don’t forget to start in rest position and to sing along with me on the video.
Here is the link to the help video
Here’s the words
and here is the music for you to play along with yourself
Take care everyone!!
Flash card rhythms and echo clapping
Distinguishing between different rhythms, keeping a steady beat
Reading rhythms. Resources
1. See if you can copy the rhythms that I clap in the Echo Clapping video. I clap first, and then you copy my rhythm in the gap afterwards. If you get really good, see if you can come up with your own patterns for your family to copy at home.
2. The next stage on from listening and copying rhythms, is to be able to read them and clap them. Don’t forget that ta looks like this , and te-te looks like this . Please open the rhythm sheet above, see if you can say the rhythms and clap them.
3. The flash card video shows some of the same rhythms you came across in the echo claping video. This time you need to read the rhythm to clap it rather than listen to it.
Last week would have been our week 30 concert, and I really missed seeing you all. Our week 15 concert was absolutely amazing and you should be so proud of what you managed then. This week I thought we’d have a go at one of the songs you sang so well in that concert; Puddles. I’ve sent a link to the words and a little video of me singing for you to follow along with.
Here is the music – https://1drv.ms/b/s!Aofbn0YtqGi0qAdC_2detzgSiw_C?e=K8Z0nV
And here’s a little video to help you out - https://youtu.be/UuUdBaz82-Q
Have a good week everyone!
