Hello Woodpeckers!


I hope you have all enjoyed a lovely weekend and celebrated Mother's day with your family. I have uploaded some spellings for this week onto purple mash, and also made a separate blog on purple mash for you all to share any work you have been doing. So far, all of your work that has been shared and handed in looks brilliant! Remember to leave me a comment when you hand it in to let me know how you found it or ask me any questions. 


Another activity you may like to try is creating a rainbow using different pencil and drawing techniques, like the photo below. 


Don't forget to write something in your diary to let me know what you have been up to for when we come back.

Please try to make sure you are reading for at least 15 minutes a day!

Explore different places you can read, make a reading den, or try reading to a sibling or pet!


Oxford Owls - This is a fantastic website that has released many FREE online eBooks. Why not see if they have a book on there you have been waiting for ages to read?


David Walliams audible books - One of our favourite authors is releasing a new audio book each day, have a listen or try and read along too if you have the book!


Comprehension activities

Reading question cards - Try answering some of the questions on these reading response cards during and after you have read to check you have understood the story. 


You could also try the following:

  • Predicting what is going to happen next.
  • Creating a story board to show how the characters feelings have changed throughout the book/chapter.
  • Picking out sentences and using them to explain how or why a character might be feeling a certain way.

  • Explore your house by finding the perimeter of different objects. Try to use a variety of different methods such as: Measuring the whole of the outside of a shape, measuring 2 lengths of rectangular shapes, measuring 1 length of a square shape, and use these measurements to calculate the perimeter. 
  • Try measuring a variety of objects and converting the unit from cm to mm, m or even km.
  • Year 4 Children: Try to find the area of square and rectangular shapes by multiplying 2 lengths together, or drawing shapes on squared paper and counting the number of cm squares. 
  • Use baking to measure, weight and convert units. 
  • Have a go at finding the perimeter of rectangles using the data below:


Have a go at answering some problem solving questions about measurment :)



States of Matter


Investigate how long it takes for different materials change state depending on their temperature. 


Choose a material to investigate (maybe chocolate or ice?) and find different locations around your house and garden to leave them. Observe each location over time and see if they change state and if so, how long it takes.

Record your findings on a graph and write a conclusion to explain what happened and why you think this happened.


Key vocabulary: Solid, liquid, gas, particles, temperature, flow, melt, freeze, condense and evapourate.
