Year 4 Home-School Learning

Welcome to the Year 4 BRW Home-School Learning Page


This term, although a little different from normal, will still be jam-packed with learning! This term we will be learning about the Ancient Egyptians as we discover….


We will be learning more about life in the times of the Ancient Egyptians, their belief and the story behind the awe-inspiring pyramids.

In English we will be reading The Firework Maker’s Daughter by Philip Pullman and Cloudbusting by Malorie Blackman. Our learning each week will link to these books so make sure you have a read (or listen if you are using Audible!).

For our Maths sessions we will be logging onto the White Rose Maths Home Learning Resources. There are videos, tasks and even the answers to help guide you through the learning. I’ll post additional maths challenges on the blog too just for fun! Keep up your work on Mathletics, TTRS and MathZone. In Science we will be learning about Habitats and Plants.

In RE and Art, Miss Ferrara will be preparing your lessons. Your RE studies will focus on the topics of New Life, Building Bridges and God’s Holy People.  Your Art sessions this term will also be linked to the Egyptians as you find out more about Egyptian prints. You will also study the infamous Pablo Picasso as you learn more about printing techniques.

In Geography, we will be learning more about hot and cold climates, comparing different climate zones around the world. In D&T Mrs Piper has challenged you to use a computer programme called Mecabricks to construct your own pyramids – watch this space for more details! In PE we are going to be developing our athletics skills and hopefully have some time to perfect our throwing and catching for cricket in the summer term. In French, keep working on your numbers to 30, simple greeting and…..see if you can remember the names of the animals you learnt last term!
