Distance (home) learning activities 
Below, you will find activities for your child to do at home. We would like you to complete the home learning activity linked to our next topic, practise statutory spellings for year 3 and 4 and complete the maths times table challenges. The children know how to complete the maths times table challenges - children are allowed 2 minutes for each column.

Welcome to the Y4KH/LD webpage where we will keep you updated about all of the exciting things we have learnt each term as well as additional information about what we will be learning in the upcoming term.


In English this half term we will be reading and writing historical fiction linked to our history topic ‘The Romans’. We will also be exploring diaries and reading ‘diary of Wimpy Kid’ series by Jeff Kinney. We will continue using a Talk for Writing approach to help us with our writing, and will learn texts off by heart to help us understand and remember the structure. We have had a lot of fun doing this and have created some great actions which really help us remember the text.


For maths we will be learning a broad range of units but will be specifically focusing on developing mental strategies of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000, partitioning numbers and practising multiplication and division facts. Times tables play a crucial role in all maths that the children do and is therefore imperative that children know their times tables confidently to 12 x 12. 

Our topic this half term is 'The Romans'. In this unit of work, the children will learn about the Roman Empire, its impact on Britain and the legacy it left behind. Children will acquire and practise skills in a range of curriculum areas including; Art by making mosaics, in Design Technology by designing and making Aqueducts, in Literacy by creating a dramatic depiction of a Roman battle and debating relevant topics and Geography through understanding the location and extent of the empire. During this topic, we will also learn about the history of Rome and how the Romans came to extend their power and create such a large and influential empire.



We are really looking forward to more challenges and fun learning ahead and hope that you are too!


Thank you for your continued support.
