On this Home Pack 1 page, you will find a range of activities your child can complete at home should you/your child currently be in isolation, or in the event that school is required to close. Children who are feeling poorly are not expected to complete work at home.
Most activities are online, but any that involve recording could be done in a note pad, or on paper. Please only request paper copies only if there is no access to seeing online.
If you have any questions or queries regarding the activities or tasks on this page, then please contact me via email:
firstname.lastname@example.org within the requested hours 9am – 5pm.
Stay safe, make healthy choices and explore woods – if you are able.

GENERAL - CHILDREN'S CHOICE FUN ACTIVITIES ;-]
www.jamesdysonfoundation.com Suggested indoor activities here do not need a lot of ‘special’ equipment: New Penny Science card 09; Scared pepper – Science 17; Marble Run – 02 engineering
https://thekidshouldseethis.com/?s=rivers As we are studying rivers, I thought I'd include some interesting, learning videos about them.
https://world-geography-games.com/ What a great time to broaden your knowledge of the World around us when we have different countries in the news?
https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Search.aspx?q=rivers Another site that will deepen your understanding of rivers.
Have a look for inspiration – Andy Goldsworthy used materials in nature – you have your own Nature Supermarket around you – no empty shelves in sight!
http://www.bbc.co.uk/northernireland/schools/4_11/music/mm/index.shtml Music Mysteries – requires flash.
Out door activity?
We live near so many rivers so IF government advice allows go and walk, investigate with family and even study streams in the woods, see how fast sticks travel, build bridges for tiny teddies to pretend to walk across, streams behave like rivers – how do they change – visit each day on walk. Does the stream stay, or go? How does that link to the water cycle? Take photos to create a collage, keep a 'Walk in the Woods' diary to share once we are all back. Draw, collect sticks. Build a raft for a small teddy – does it float, sink? How could you improve it?
MUST HAVE ADVICE: safe play, adult permission and presence.
General maths practice
https://uk.ixl.com/math/year-4 You could use many areas from this site; areas not yet taught during Year 4 so would NOT recommend at this stage are: Probability and statistics Decimals Add and subtract fractions Equivalent fractions Equations and variables Understand fractions Compare and order fractions
B.2 Identify nouns
D.1 Use action verbs
THESE ARE SOME ACTIVITIES THAT LINK CLOSELY TO LEARNING IN SCHOOL THAT HAS HAPPENED, OR NEEDS DEVELOPING FURTHER.
Please timetable time quieter times each day for: maths, tables and grammar as well as plenty of reading. Make it fun and add some outdoor activities (if allowed) and incorporate some of the children's interest activities offered in the general learning section of the Home Pack.
Take care all and stay safe
