Year 4 Home Learning


Y4  Home Learning Plan

Class teachers:  Miss French and Miss Pugh


This Home Learning Plan supports the education of children needing to isolate at home but who would otherwise be well enough to attend school.  


The Home Learning Plan combines set daily tasks for a child to complete for English, links to daily White Rose Maths, links to Oak National Academy daily lessons (this includes teaching and learning of other subjects in the curriculum). 


Daily reading:  


It is so important you continue your daily reading.  Please read at least 30 minutes a day – great if you can read longer (you may wish to break it up into two 15 minute sessions).   Choose from the following types of text:

- your school reading book

- your assigned book on Active Learn – Bug Club:

(log in details on page 21 of Home School Diary)

- one of your own fiction or non-fiction books

- an article on the Children’s Newsround website

- a magazine or comic


Once a week, choose three reading questions from your home reading diary on pages 32-35 and answer these.

Daily ‘White Rose Maths’ Lesson


‘White Rose Maths’ is the maths scheme we follow at St Mark’s. Each week they provide a set of online Home Learning lessons in the form of a video.  Please encourage your child to complete one lesson every day (note: sometimes there may be only 4 videos for a week).   


The video can be accessed and played on any PC, laptop, mobile device, phone etc.  Your child should pause the video and try answering questions when instructed to do so. All jottings and calculations can be made in your child’s Homework Book.
