PaG (15 minutes)

For PaG today, I would like you to work on your tense. We will be focusing on Past and Present tense.

Past tense- something that is already happened.

Present tense- something that is happening.

Please fill in the table and change the words to past or present tense.


LC: To complete a shared write. 

Today you are going to be continuing with your shared write. Today you will be writing a detailed ‘resolution’ paragraph.  
Have a think: What happens in the resolution paragraph of Hansel and Gretel? 
-Gretel feeds Hansel for a few days.
-She lures the witch close to the blazing fire and forces her in, locking the door tight.
-Gretel then frees Hansel and they bolt to the forest.
-Miraculously they run into their father who was woodcutting in the forest.  

Over the week I want you to use your story mountain, which you created on Monday, to help you write a different section each day. Use your points for each section of the story and make sure you expand on it the best you can.  Watch the video below for further explanation:

Within your problem paragraph you must use these sentence types and writing skills: 

  • Upper level verbs
  • Similes
  • Complex sentences
  • Multi-clause sentences
  • Onomatopoeia

Maths (45 minutes)

Today in maths, we will be continuing with our Bar Graphs. Yesterday, we created our own bar graphs using data. Today, you will be answering questions on the bar graph. To do this, you really need to understand the question and know where to look!

Let’s have a look at the first question on Number 1. We need to find out how much Mr Haddon sold on Monday. You need to read the horizontal axis and find Monday as this is the data we need to collect from. We need to find out how many pounds he earned. Where does the yellow line stop? We need to read the bar graph carefully to collect the data we need. Try your best and take your time.


For reading this afternoon I would like you to read a book to an adult.  

Before you start reading your book, can you look at the front cover and predict what you think might happen. Who are the characters? What are their names? What might be a problem in the book? 

Whilst reading, please can your adult select some words from your text and ask you to clarify these words. What do they mean? Why are they used? 

At the end of your reading session, I would like you to summarise what has happened. What did you learn? What did you not expect? 


Today you are going to be looking at your new PSHE topic this half term which is mental health and wellbeing. This is super important during lockdown because you need to stay mentally ok and your wellbeing is important. 

Task 1 – You are going to be given a group of words and I want you to find other words which might relate to that word. Happy, sad, angry, worried. For example – happy = overjoyed, excited…..  

Task 2 – You are going to get another group of words now and I want you to rank these words on a feeling thermometer. I want you to order these on how you are feeling right now during lockdown. Once you have ordered them either send them straight to me or talk to your parents about them. It is important we all feel safe and happy. 

 joy, fear, sadness, anger, happy, excited, frightened, worried, nervous, bored, tired, loved  

Task 3 – I am going to give you a scenario, I would like you to create a comic strip of how you would help this person.  

A nervous boy is going back to school after the third COVID-19 related lockdown, he is feeling worried about it because his mum is a doctor and he doesn’t want her to catch it. You see him at break time alone and wandering around on his own. What might you do? How might you help? How does he react? Does he change his mood in a positive way? What does he feel now? 

Task 2

End of Day

You have just completed your first day of online learning. You should be very proud of yourself.  Please grab a book and find a nice quiet place it sit. Enjoy your story and relax. 

Please make sure to send your work in via the link. Your work will not be published and will be sent directly to your class teacher.

Well done Year 4, we are nearly at the end of the week!
