Friday 22nd May

Good morning Year 4,

 

Wonderful to see all the work you have been doing in maths this week yes You are keeping very busy.

 

We are going to continue with Improper Fractions (mixed fractions) to end the week. 

Have a look at the PowerPoint first, remembering to do so in Slideshow mode.

 

Apologies for worksheets being in the pdf format but answers do not need to be written on the page. it is visual only.

There are answers included (no sneaky peeking wink) on the second sheet.

 

Have a fabulous weekend,

Love from 

Mrs Afford

 

Ps. don't forget to send in your music videos. Thank you for your fabulous contribution Alfie heart

Thursday 21st May

Good morning Year 4, I hope you are all well and finding the time to prioritise your mental health during Mental Health Week? You can find details about that (and also the Beatles music video collaboration - don't forget the deadline is tomorrow!) on the main Year 4 Homework page.

 

Today we are going to look at fractions greater than 1, or fractions that are bigger than one whole. This is when we have improper fractions, or mixed numbers

 

This example uses circles to show the wholes, when we did this in class we used bar models.

 

Use the White Rose video and BBC Bitesize page to help you, then see if you can have a go at the White Rose questions below. Remember to draw out the question to help you see it using bar models!

Next week is half term, so you can enjoy a well-earned break! I have put some fun activities on the main homework page just in case you want something to do across the week smiley

 

Have fun with Mrs Afford's lesson tomorrow, and I will see you all back here a week on Monday! Don't forget you can always send me and the rest of Year 4 a 'hello' message on the Purple Mash blog to keep in touch until we see each other again. 

 

Take care,

 

Miss Byrne xx

Wednesday 20th May

Good morning everyone, halfway through the week already!

 

Today we are going to continue practising finding equivalent fractions. Remember you can use the fraction wall to help you to see which fractions line up with each other. If the lines are in the same place on the wall, then those fractions are equivalent.

 

[Pupils in school: the White Rose videos have been unblocked for the rest of this week, so the links will work now!]

The rule for working out equivalent fractions without the wall is whatever you do to the numerator, you do the same to the denominator. If you divide the top by 3, you must divide the bottom by 3. If you multiply the top by 5, you must multiply the bottom by 5 as well.

 

Good luck!

Tuesday 19th May

Good morning everyone! I hope you all solved the clues yesterday to find out who the new pirate captain was?

 

Today we are going to revisit equivalent fractions. We were really good at this a few weeks ago when we did this in school, let's see how much you can remember!

 

The trick is that whatever you do to the top number (numerator), you do the same to the bottom number (denominator).

 

E.g. 2      (x5)     10

       3      (x5)     15

 

I have attached a fraction wall here to help you see where the fraction bars are lining up with each other showing they are equivalent or equal.

Have a go at the White Rose questions once you have reminded yourself of how to find equivalent fractions. Try as many as you can, don't worry if you can't answer them all! The answers can be found below.

 

Good luck!

Monday 18th May

Good morning and Happy Monday Year 4! 

 

Since we have already done a lot of work on the White Rose lesson for today, I have given you something a bit more exciting to do! 

 

You are going to be detectives to find out the mystery of who the new captain should be on board a pirate ship! You will need to use a range of maths skills to uncover the truth!

 

Good luck!

If you are finding this difficult to do or access, you could try some of the quizzes on the website below. Just look for the Year 4 ones and see if you can get all the answers right!

Friday 15th May

 

It's Friday again Y4!

 

This week you have been calculating the  perimeter of rectangles and moved onto to linear shapes.

Here is a PowerPoint that shows you how to calculate this in detail and you can choose whether you want to use the grids or not. 

 

I have also included a simple PowerPoint showing you how to calculate the perimeter of shapes ( and throwing in a sneaky bit of 2-D shape revision wink)

 

Finally, there is a series of worksheets looking at area and perimter for you to have a go at. Afgain answers are included so you can check your work.

Thursday 14th May

Hello everyone, today we are doing some more perimeter work for our Maths learning. We are moving on from rectangles to rectilinear shapes. (This just means a shape that could be split up into two or more rectangles, for example an L shape.)

 

We are still a day behind, so we will be using Wednesday's video!

I hope you enjoy what Mrs Afford has planned for you tomorrow and have a rest over the weekend, and I will see you here again on Monday!

 

Miss Byrne

Wednesday 13th May

Good morning Year 4! 

 

Today we are going to be revising perimeter of a rectangle! (We did some area before the Easter break, make sure you don't mix them up!)

 

Remember we are a day behind, so it is Tuesday's resources we are using!

Use the White Rose and BBC resources to help you learn how to do the questions, then have a go at the White Rose questions. Good luck!

Tuesday 12th May

Good morning everyone! I hope you all had fun over the bank holiday weekend and are feeling refreshed.

 

I wanted to share a little nugget of advice with you all today before we begin and I'll put this on both the Maths and English pages - we always ask in school for you to try your best. We don't mind if you make a mistake, or if you find something hard as long as you try.

 

But this is the important part: on some days, your best might look different. On some days your best might be tackling all of the questions and feeling super! On some days your best might be just having a go at one or two questions, and that is okay. No one is perfect every day and we shouldn't expect to be. You are all doing brilliantly and I am proud of each and every one of you smiley

 

Your maths learning for today is the Monday lesson from BBC Bitesize and the White Rose Home Learning Videos, so make sure you are on the right page!

Well done for all your hard work Year 4, and remember to just try your best, whatever that might look like today. smiley

 

Miss Byrne

Friday 8th May and Monday 11th May

Please see the main 'Homework' page for Year 4 for some 'VE Day' activities on Friday, and a special 'My Life In Lockdown' competition on Monday! 

 

Daily lessons will resume as normal on Tuesday 12th May.

Enjoy your bank holiday weekend, stay safe and take care!

 

Love Miss Byrne and Mrs Afford

Thursday 7th May

Good morning Year 4, I hope you are looking forward to a long weekend!

 

Today's maths is a step up with division again, but with an extra digit. Use the BBC Bitesize and White Rose videos to help you, then have a go at the White Rose questions. 

 

Good luck! 

Wednesday 6th May

Hello Year 4, can you believe we're halfway through the week again already?

 

So far this week you have recapped your multiplication skills, now we are going to do the opposite or inverse - division. 

 

Use the White Rose video and BBC Bitesize site to remind you how to do it, then have a go at the White Rose questions. Have fun!

Tuesday 5th May

Good morning Year 4, I hope you managed to juggle the new format yesterday using White Rose Maths and BBC Bitesize! 

 

Today we are looking at multiplication again, but this time with an extra digit.

Once you feel confident, have a go at the White Rose questions. Good luck!

Monday 4th May

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all refreshed after the weekend and ready for some more maths today!

 

White Rose Maths (the resources we have been using for the past few weeks) have teamed up with BBC Bitesize to help give you some more input and activities for your learning.

 

I would suggest using the BBC Bitesize site and White Rose video to help you understand the task, then do the White Rose questions to practise what you have learnt. (You can do the BBC Bitesize activities as well if you like, or for a change, or if you are finding the White Rose questions too tricky. You choose which work is right for you! smiley)

 

Today's focus is multiplication

Friday 1st May

Happy Friday to you all!

 

You have been looking at money this week and today you have some consolidation activities based on what you have learned. I am sure you are very good at money; both pounds and pence now smiley

 

 

Thursday 30th April

Good morning Year 4!

 

Today's maths learning is building on what we did yesterday. Today we will be ordering money. (Hint: some of the questions include both pounds and pence, so I would suggest either making all of the amounts pounds, or making all of the amounts pence. That makes it easier to compare them because the decimal points will be in the same place!)

Have fun doing this and the work Mrs Afford leaves you tomorrow! I hope you have a lovely weekend and I will see you back here on Monday! - Miss Byrne

Wednesday 29th April

Hello Year 4, we're halfway through the week already!

 

Today we are going to use all of your practice with decimals to tackle some problems about money. Imagine that the pounds are the whole numbers (ones) and that the pence are the tenths and hundredths after the decimal point. 

 

Use the video and powerpoint to help you, then have a go at answering the questions below.

 

Good luck!

Tuesday 28th April

Happy Tuesday Year 4! 

 

Today we are looking at halves and quarters and what the decimal equivalents are to them. 

 

Use the White Rose video to explain our learning and have a look at the powerpoint before tackling today's questions.

 

Have fun!

Monday 27th April

Welcome back to a new week Year 4, I hope you are rested after the weekend and ready to get going again! 

 

Today we are going to be rounding decimals to the nearest whole number. This is just like rounding whole numbers except there is a decimal point in the middle! Like last week, use the video and the powerpoint to learn and practise, then have a go at as many questions as you can. 

 

Good luck!

Picture 1

Friday 24th April

Good morning Year 4!

 

You have been working hard on your decimals this week and learning to order them and use the signs <, > and = to show less than, greater than and equal to.

 

Today, you have a PowerPoint that consolidates this week's learning. I have also included an activity sheet and answers so you can check your work.

 

Keep working, it's almost the weekend smiley

Thursday 23rd April

Hello Year 4, I hope you are all keeping well!

 

We are going to be building on what we did yesterday in comparing decimals today to focus on ordering decimals. Just like yesterday, remember your place value - which digit is worth more than the others?

Well done for your hard work this week, I'll be back on Monday. Enjoy tomorrow's work from Mrs Afford and have a lovely weekend! - Miss Byrne

Wednesday 22nd April

Good morning Year 4, we will be continuing with decimals today! Today we will be comparing decimals, in other words which ones are bigger or smaller than others.

 

You will need to use your understanding of place value here. Do you remember how we order numbers with Th H T O ? You start looking at the biggest digit, then the next, then the next. The same rules apply with decimals!

As in our previous lessons, this powerpoint has some extra practice questions and you can look back at the knowledge organiser too.

Tuesday 21st April

Good morning!

 

Today's task is about writing decimals correctly - be careful to remember the difference between tenths and hundredths!

 

Like yesterday, you can watch Tuesday's video on this website for a starter quiz and an explanation of today's learning.

If you would like some extra practise, this powerpoint and knowledge organiser are there to help.

Then have a go at as many questions as you can below!

 

Enjoy!

Monday 20th April

Welcome back to your Maths home learning page! Your brains have had a chance to recharge over the Easter break after all of your hard work over the past few weeks. I hope you're ready to get cracking with your new tasks!

 

Today's learning is about finding the whole using decimals. 

 

You can find a video to go with this lesson (plus a quick 'flashback' starter with 4 questions!) at this website:

If you need a little more help, this powerpoint will help guide you through some practice questions. You can also use the knowledge organiser to remind you of key facts to do with decimals.

Then you can find your questions with the answers below. Have a go at as many questions as you can!

 

Good luck!

 

 

 

Happy Easter!

Picture 1

Good morning Y4!

You have been finding the area of shapes and using squares to recognise area of shape and perimetre. This is delving into mastery of the topic. Looka t the PowerPoint on slideshow as it is interactive and then have a go at the worksheets to consolidate your fantastic learning.

I have included the answers for you to check your work.

 

Have a happy weekend

Mrs Afford

Thursday 2nd April

Today we are continuing with finding the area of shapes. Remember, perimeter is the length of the outside of the shape as if you were walking on the line, and area is the space inside the shape

 

Today's task follows the same format as the previous two days. Have a look at the powerpoint, then choose which page of questions you feel confident tackling. Page 1 if you are unsure, page 2 if you are confident, page 3 for an extra challenge! Answers are on the final page.

 

Good luck!

Wednesday 1st April

Today we are moving on to counting squares for finding the area of shapes.

 

Like yesterday, work through the powerpoint then have a go at the questions. In the question documents, page 1 is for beginners, page 2 for when you are confident, page 3 for a challenge! The final page has the answers for you to check your work against.

 

Have fun!

Tuesday 31st March

For the next few days, we are going to do some revision on how to find the area of shapes. We have not done this in a few weeks - let's see what you can remember!

 

Look through the powerpoint and then have a go at some of the questions. If you are a bit unsure or want some practice first, start on page 1. If you are feeling confident, start on page 2. If it's too easy on these pages, challenge yourself of page 3! 

 

The answers are on the final page of each document. 

 

Good luck!

Monday 30th March

Welcome to a new week of maths learning Year 4! Well done for all of your hard work so far. 

 

Today's lesson is about answering word problems and figuring out what the question is asking you to do. Sometimes it helps to draw a diagram to 'see' what the question is asking (the video will show you how!)

 

Some of these questions are to do with DIFFERENCE, or what is the difference between two numbers. This doesn't mean look to see whether one is a multiple of 2 or not, it means how many numbers are in between them. In other words, how much have we had to change one number to get to the other one? What is different about it? We usually use subtraction, or take away, to find the answers to these questions. Not every question is like this though, so be careful!

 

The video explains different methods you may want to try to answer these questions. The questions in red on the task sheet are worked through in the video and the answers are on the final page.

 

Have fun!

'Different Stories' Y4 - Here we look at a range of different word questions that involve calculating the sum and the difference between two numbers.

Revision of last unit

If any of you would like to go over the tasks and concepts from last week (tenths, hundredths, dividing by 10 and 100), the link below will take you to the White Rose Home Learning page. This includes the answers and short video clips. 

 

(Please note, this does not line up exactly with what we have been doing, but it is close with a lot of overlap and a very useful resource!)

Friday 27th March

Today in maths, you are going to be consolidating all that wonderful work you have been doing on Fractions; of shapes and quantities.

I have had to divide the PowerPoint into two halves (fractions smiley) as I did with the Art as the file was too big. Remember that it is interactive so you need to select 'slideshow' on the top toolbar.

There are some worksheets included covering the same learning objectives as in the PowerPoint so have a go! Do as many as you feel comfortable doing. The answers are included.

Have fun!

Mrs Afford

Thursday 26th March

Today's task is some consolidation (or extra practise to make sure you really know it!) questions on decimals.

 

There is a tricky challenge question at the end for those of you who are confident!

Use the resources from across the week and this knowledge organiser to help you if you get stuck!

Wednesday 25th March

Dividing by 100 - varied fluency and problem solving.

 

Resources including a game and videos to explain how to divide by 100 can be found below under Monday's links.

 

If you are feeling confident and want to challenge yourself, try to go further than the questions I have set you!

Triangles and Rectangles - Q 1-5.

Squares - Q 1-8.

Pentagons and Circles - Q 1-10.

Tuesday 24th March

Have another look at the resources from yesterday to remind you of how to divide by 10. 

Today's task is some varied fluency and problem solving tasks to do with dividing by 10!

If you are feeling confident and want to challenge yourself, try to go further than the questions I have set you.

 

Good luck!

Triangles - Q 1-5.

Rectangles - Q 1-7.

Squares - Q 1-5.

Pentagons - Q 1-6.

Circles - Q 1-6.

Monday 23rd March

 

Multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100.

Choose whether you want to do page 1 if you are a bit unsure, page 2 if you feel confident or page 3 for a challenge!

Watch this video for some help - remember to move the digits and the decimal point does not move!
Use this game to practise.
Use a place value grid to write on your digits and move them - we have used sticky notes to move digits in class.
