It is important that we all try and keep to a routine whilst we are away from school. Zoe and Kul have put together a suggested daily timetable for the Year 4 pupils.

You can view the activities over here.
We are going to look at how we can recognise tenths and hundredths in this learning activity. First you can watch some of the short videos over here.

Our first activity involves using a number grid to help with our learning. You can view the worksheet over here.

The exercise over here will help you to convert tenths into decimals.

Our work will now look at tenths on a place value grid. You can read the worksheet and answer the questions over here.

Another way of helping to understand tenths is to look at their value on a number line. The worksheet is available over here.

Finally we are going to try dividing one digit by ten. Sounds like a challenge? Find out over here.

Good luck!
Some of the Year 4 students have started to show an interest in journalism. Now is a great time to continue with this learning at home!

Try writing a daily news bulletin from home. You can report on some of the news stories and events that we are all following right now.

Think of a name for your newspaper. You will then need a short, powerful headline that describes your story.

The main news story needs to tell the reader all the facts. The first two sentences should explain:

Who is involved in the news story?

What has happened?

Where is the story happening?

Why is it happening?

When is it happening?

An example might be:

"Zoe's Year 4 Class at Michael Faraday School are working hard from home on their learning. This is because the school is currently closed because of the Coronavirus situation."

You could then add some quotes to your news story. Stay indoors and interview family members. You could include some pictures and picture captions.

We will be happy to publish any of your news reports on the Michael Faraday website once the school is open once again.
