Year 4

Hello Year 4 
Welcome to your online learning page. Each day there will be a Literacy activity and a Maths activity to complete. 
We will also be setting a project on France.  More details can be found here. We have put some suggestions on different things you could do but it is your project and should follow your interests. For example if you love animals research the animals that live in France, their diet and habitats. If football is more your thing create a guide to the football clubs of France. 
Try to get into a routine of completing your work at the same time each day in a calm/quiet space eg. At the kitchen table. 
Remember learning isn't just about reading, writing and Maths, why not learn how to tie your shoe laces, how to tell the time or how to cook your favourite dinner. 
If you or your parents/carers have any queries about your work, need help or want to share some fantastic work please email teachers@underwoodwest.cheshire.sch.uk using your child's name and class as the subject. We aim to respond within 24 hours.

Tuesday 30th of June

Hola Year 4,

We hope you are all okay and taking good care of yourself and your family. 


Did you solve the Wimbledon mystery? I hope you did. 

Today we are going to carry on with data handling and some graphs that I am sure you know very well - Bar Charts. I have two graphs for you to look at one is to do with life spans and one to do with lunch boxes. You need to make sure with bar charts that you look at the scale they are using. On the life span graph it goes up in tens.

Today you will be carrying on with your fables. We hope you enjoyed reading them yesterday. We have given you another one to read called the fox and the crow. 




We have given you some work on colours this week just to refresh your memory.

Thursday 25th of June 

Good Morning Year 4. It is going to be a hot one so be careful if your going outside plenty of sun cream and a cap on too!


Today we are going to look at pictograms which as the name suggests are pictures drawn to represent a graph. To give you a recap there is a PowerPoint to look at and then two sheets to complete. Look at how they cut the mini-beasts in on page 21 so that half a mini-beast represents one. We will put the answers on, on Friday so you can check.

Hello Year 4 and a terrific Tuesday to you all!


We hope you enjoyed the maths mystery yesterday but did you solve it? Today numeracy is all about Carroll Diagrams. We know that some of you will know all about Carroll Diagrams but some of you may also feel unsure so just in case there is a PowerPoint just to refresh your memory and then two sheets for you to complete and the answers will be given to you on Wednesday.

Today you have plenty to look at with pronouns and adjectives to work on. Scroll down to find Tuesday's work but remember don't go onto Wednesday's work.



I have put your topic plan on again.

We though you might like a reading comprehension about Stonehenge which has been in the news over the weekend because it is a place where the summer solstice is celebrated this is when daylight is at it longest and the daylight then starts to gets shorter and you will see the nights slowly getting darker earlier.  


For you writing today we are going to look at The True Story of The Three Little Pigs which I think you will enjoy. Please click on the clink below and look at the work you are going to do today. Work your way down the page until you get to Tuesday. Don't go past it  - that is tomorrow's work.
