18.1.21 Monday Housman Home Learning

Good morning everyone. I was so pleased to be able to join the Year 4 children on Zoom last Wednesday. Both the children in class and the Year 4 children agreed that getting all the Maths and English completed in the morning and having a more relaxed afternoon was working best. Don’t forget that you can contact us via the class email. We do welcome feedback and are very happy to help in any way that we can.

Monday Morning Activity: Tessellations

The children in school like to start each week with some mindful colouring. As you can see the two shapes in this design fit together with no gaps. They tessellate. Create a colourful pattern.

Comprehension: We are continuing to explore the book  “History VIP:Mary Anning ” by Kay Barnham with Oak National Academy. Lesson 3 explores how the author uses language.

Main Activity: To calculate perimeters of 2D shapes in cm and mm.

We will be using the measuring skills that we went over last week to jump to Lesson 5 of Oak National Academy Length and Perimeter unit.

click here for lesson 5 video – to calculate perimeters of 2d shape using cm and mm.

Silent Reading: Please spend 15/20 minutes reading quietly by yourself or with someone else. Your younger siblings might like you to read a story to them.

Art: Landscapes

Last week we made drawings of the view from one of our windows inspired by the iPad drawings “My Window” by David Hockney.

.David Hockney | Prints | Bigger Book | ArtmarketDavid Hockney. My Window - image 7

This week we are going to draw the view from our window and show a rainy day. Use a black, non-permanent felt pen (or any colour that you have) Draw the view from one of your windows. Then quickly get a cup with a little bit of water in it, put your hand into the water and flick some droplets onto your picture. (Don’t do this more than 3 times) Either leave the picture to dray flat or experiment by making the droplets run over the picture. Here is my attempt of the view from my window.

PE: Yoga

The children at school really enjoyed this Minecraft Yoga Story.

End of Day Activity: Watch “Newsround” to keep up to date with current affairs.




Thank you for all the work you have completed this week. If you have any feedback or require further guidance or support, please e-mail

A zoom session has been scheduled for this morning. Your child will need a pencil and piece of paper.

Year 4-   11.00am – 11.30am

Answers for task set yesterday- treasure, measure and pleasure


There are 2 activities to complete for this subject.

In this part of the lesson, children will think about the way the crayons felt in the book and why. They will write the feelings and opinions of the crayons, explaining these using the joining conjunctions ‘because’ and ‘so’. Children will then answer some questions about the character they devised in lesson 6 and think about some opinions their characters might have. For their task, children will write sentences expressing their characters’ opinions and feelings and giving reasons for them.

Click here for part 1 of the lesson

In the second part of the lesson, children will explore commands and then rhetorical questions. They will look at some examples of commands and rhetorical questions from ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ and see a modelled write. They will practise writing commands and rhetorical questions from the perspective of one of the crayons. For their task, children will write one command and one rhetorical question from the perspective of their devised character.

SCIENCE with Dr Roberts

How particles behave in different states of matter

This term, we are looking at ‘States of Matter’ as our topic in Science.  In our first lesson, we learned that materials can be in one of three states of matter – solid, liquid or gas.

We can explain the differences between solids, liquids and gases by knowing what they are made of. Scientists have found out that all materials are made of very tiny particles (so small that we can’t see them with our eyes or even with a microscope!). The position and behaviour of the particles is different in solids, liquids and gases, giving them different properties. We can use diagrams to represent the arrangement of the particles.

Use the link below to take you to an Oak National Academy lesson about how particles behave inside solids, liquids and gases.

By the end of the video, check that you have the following pieces of work in your book:

– a picture and written descriptions of how particles are arranged in a solid, a liquid and a gas (updated and added to during the video);

– pictures showing how the particles are arranged in butter, juice and helium (used to fill balloons).

                                                                SCIENCE with Dr Roberts

Understanding different states of matter

This term, we are looking at ‘States of Matter’ as our topic in Science.

A material can be in one of three states of matter – a solid, a liquid or a gas. To help you understand more about the states of matter, click on the link to BBC Bitesize below, then complete the sections listed:

What are the states of matter?

  • Watch the video carefully;
  • Complete the ‘Choose the correct state’ sorting activity;
  • Have a go at the ‘Quiz’.

Draw a table in your book (3 columns) with the headings solid, liquid and gas, as shown below. Leave space to write a list in each column.

Solid Liquid Gas







Look at the list of materials below and decide which state of matter each belongs to – write the material in the correct column of your table:

glass                                        wool                                         clay

coffee                                                tea                                          steam

cardboard                              rain                                         rock

metal                                      paper                                      plastic

clouds                                     magnet                                   milk

cream                                     water                                      soup

pebble                                     fabric                                     wool

hot air                                                juice                                        oxygen


Try to add some other materials that you can think of to each state of matter.

Look back at the properties of solids, liquids and gases (on the BBC Bitesize page), then copy and complete the table below by putting a tick or a cross in each box.
