Hello Year 4 and welcome to Jolly June .

I thought this half term we would start our new science topic so todays lesson is an introduction to ‘light’.

What is light?

Today’s objective is to understand the difference between light and dark.

Before you start todays task make a list of all of the things you already know about light and dark. What would you like to know?

Light sources: A source of light makes light. The Sun and other stars, fires, torches and lamps all make their own light and so
are examples of sources of light. Some animals, such as fireflies and glow-worms, are light sources. They make their own
light to attract mates.

.    .  


Explore the bbc bitesize website to find out about light what it is and
light sources. There is a presentation, a ‘fill in the gaps’ activity and a


When you have completed your research visit purple mash and complete the activity ‘Sources of Light’.


What is dark?

Can you write a sentence to answer this question?
(Hint: the answer to this question you will find on the Seymour science video clip)


Have fun !

Good morning Year 4 and welcome to Thursday!

How did you do with yesterdays art activity? I am sure very well so today we are going to try another bit of ‘animal art’ !

Animal Silhouette and Patterns:

A silhouette is the black shape of an object. We can also say, shadow. Today you are going to use animal silhouettes and patterns to make an animal themed piece of artwork.

Firstly, I would like you to think about your favourite animal. Think about its skin or fur in terms of pattern and texture. What does it look like? What does it feel like? Can you think of any words to describe it i.e. furry, spiky, slimy, fuzzy, sharp etc.? What colour is the skin or fur of your animal? Look at the animals below and see if you can describe their skin, fur or feathers.


When you have chosen your creature, using black paper and a pencil, trace, draw the outline of your chosen animal, carefully including part of its body that helps identify it.

Next, carefully cut the outline of your animal out of the black paper and put it to one side. If you can’t find any black paper you could always use white and then colour your animal shape in black with a black pencil or pen.



Next, using white paper, lightly draw the pattern of your animal’s skin or fur all across the page. Using your coloured pencils or oil pastels, fill in the colours inside your pattern. As you do this consider what texture might feel like and how you can convey that in your line quality. If your texture is fuzzy, use short soft strokes. If your texture is spiky, use long specific strokes. If your skin is bumpy like an octopus’ example, we left white areas around the suckers to show the suckers above the skin. When you have finished your skin/fur background you will then need to stick your black animal silhouette into the centre of your page……. hey presto you’ve created a piece of Animal Art!


These are some my year 6 students created a few years ago …… can you do better?

Have fun!

Good morning Year 4 and welcome to another week!

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and in light of the current situation, it is even more important than usual to raise awareness.

Kindness has been chosen as this year’s theme because “Kindness strengthens relationships, develops community and deepens solidarity. It is a cornerstone of our individual and collective mental health. Wisdom from every culture across history recognises that kindness is something that all human beings need to experience and practise to be fully alive.”

We have decided to try and take part in an act of kindness each day this week and want you to join in. It may be an act of kindness towards a friend, family member, a stranger or even yourself!

Why not do something kind and make someone laugh today? It has been proven that having a laugh is super for your mental health and wellbeing! It reduces stress and released ‘feel-good’ chemicals.

So, we want to you think of your best jokes to make people laugh. Any great ones you can think of, send us a video of you telling them or write them down and we will share them on the Facebook page.

Before you start… here’s something to make you laugh!

Have fun!

Good morning Year 4 and welcome to Thursday. Today we have some recipe ideas for your V.E.Day party!

Carrot Cake

During WWII, sugar was rationed to 8 oz (ounces) a week – that’s 225g (grams), the equivalent of just 15 tablespoons!

  3. Rub in the margarine.
  4. Add the sugar, carrot, sultanas and egg.
  5. Mix together.

  7. Bake for around 15 minutes until the edges are golden.

Fresh Lemonade

Hello Year 4  it’s Wonderful Wednesday and halfway through another week of home learning.

Today we are going to be detectives and solve a Morse Code Challenge!

On Tuesday 8th May, 1945, millions of people rejoiced in the news that Germany had surrendered. In towns and cities across the world, people marked the victory with street parties, dancing and singing. Winston Churchill, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom at that time, gave a rousing speech to the nation.

Your challenge is to use the morse code chart below to decipher part of Churchill’s famous speech!

(TIP: look carefully for the spaces that indicate the end of one letter and the start of another.)

A .- B -… C -.-. D -.. E . F ..-.

G –. H …. I .. J .— K -.- L .-..

M — N -. O — P .–. Q –.- R .-.

S … T – U ..- V …- W .– X -..-

Y -.– Z –.. . .-.-.- , –..– ! ..–.

–  = Dash

.  = Dot

Space = Letter separator

/ = Word separator

Did you successfully use morse code to decipher this part of Churchill’s VE day speech?

 This is the actual speech:

God bless you all.

This is your victory!

It is the victory of the cause of freedom in every land.

In all our long history we have never seen a greater day than this.

Everyone, man or woman, has done their best. Everyone has tried.

Neither the long years, nor the dangers, nor the fierce attacks of the enemy, have in any way weakened the independent resolve of the British nation.

God bless you all.

Good Luck

Good Morning Year 4 and welcome to Tuesday !

As Friday 8th of May is the  75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe Day,  Mrs Watson, Miss Tait and I decided we would include some fun activities to your home learning this week. Today we would like you to design a V.E. Day Medal !

This medal celebrated the end of the First World War and was given to soldiers who fought in the war. It was a symbol of great pride but its design was also highly symbolic. 

Your task 

We would like you to design your own medal to mark the end of the Second World War that is just as symbolic and creative.  Your medal can be any shape or size but after you have designed your medal, annotate it to explain why you have chosen your design. If you decide to make a real medal, you could write a few notes on a separate piece of paper.

Possible things to research before you start:

  • The years of the Second World War
  • Who were England’s allies? What colours would represent them?
  • Which different army forces helped out in the war? How could you reflect them all in your medal?
  • Are there any symbols which signify the end of the war that you could include?
  • Are there any symbols which signify the soldiers’ sacrifice and then the victory?

We really look forward to seeing your designs. Please send them over to the Hedworthfield Facebook page so we can share them on the page.

Happy Friday from Mrs Calder too ! How about a creative Friday?

5 – Digestive System 2

 Now that you know the parts of the body included in the digestive system, we want you to focus on the function of those body parts. We want you to explain to us how they work. Do some further research with your adult at home and see if you can do a mini project to explain to us how the digestive system works.

You could:

  • Draw the pictures of the body parts and label them to explain what their job is.
  • You could make up a story about the digestive system.
  • You could pick 5 of the body parts and write a sentence for each one explaining the job.
  • You could ask your adult to lie down and label their body parts to explain the jobs they have.
  • You could ask you adult to quiz you on the function of each part.
  • You could make a video of you being the teacher and explaining a few of the basics about the digestive system to someone else in your house.
  • You could create a poster or a leaflet to tell us some of the main information.

Here are some ideas:


Remember to share any of your learning with us on the Facebook page!

Have a happy weekend everyone !

Now that we have learned all about healthy eating and the different food groups, we will now look at what happens to the food once it is in our body. This is called the digestive system.

Look at the following links with your adults at home to help you to learn about what the digestive system is and how it works.





Purple Mash – now that you have learned a bit about the digestive system, see if you can label the body parts on the activity ‘digestive system’. We will check to see how you get on!

Good morning Year 4 . Your science task for today is below, but first, why not try a little activity this morning. It’s “World Wish Day” today- so here is something you can do.

Wish Jar

As tricky as it is at the moment, it is important to remember that it is only temporary (won’t last forever). Why not make a ‘wish jar’ and plan in all the lovely things you wish to do once this is all over. You could find a jar and add notes in, write on a piece of paper or even write a letter with all the things you hope to do once it is safe to return to normality.

Some things on my list are:

  • To go and visit my sons and give them big hugs and kisses! (which they will hate)
  • Visit my 90-year-old Mam and give her a big hug too!
  • Go to the Metro Centre and buy lots of things I don’t need but want!
  • Go away for the weekend in my caravan.
  • Get a McDonalds bacon double cheeseburger. (whoops!)
  • Have some friends and family round for a BBQ in the sun!
  • Get my hair cut!
  • Go for a coffee and catch up with my closest friends.

And most importantly…

  • See all of the lovely children and families from Hedworthfield!






What would be on your list?

Once you have made your list or jar, take a picture and send to the HF Facebook page. Enjoy! We look forward to hearing from you all.

Your science task today is to:

3 – Plan a healthy meal

Use your knowledge of healthy eating and the different food groups to design a healthy meal. This could be breakfast, lunch or tea. There are lots of ways you could show us your healthy meal. You could:

  • Make it yourself! Take a picture of your healthy food before you eat it.
  • Draw a picture of your healthy meal on some paper.
  • Cut out some pictures from magazines or online and create your plate.
  • Film a cooking show style video of you or your adult preparing your healthy meal!

If you can, label the different foods and which food group they come from.

Remember to send us pictures of your healthy meals!

Have fun!
