Good morning year 4 - Welcome to Wellbeing Wednesday!


For the next two days we will be continuing and then finishing our writing focus based on our class book, 'The Ice Palace' by R. Swindells.


Writing task - Today I would like to write the beginning of the story told from the point of view of Starjik. You will write three paragraphs today and then finish the story tomorrow. You have your story plan from last Friday and there is also a PowerPoint below to help you. Don't forget to use your neatest, cursive handwriting. I cannot wait to read the finished versions on Thursday!

Re-read 'The Ice Palace' by R. Swindells from pages 55 - 84 . Then answer the questions.  You do not need to print the sheets, you can write the answers on a piece of paper or download and type onto the page.  Don't forget to email your work to us.

You should also be reading an age appropriate text for 15 minutes every day. If you do not have a book at home that you can use, then log on to Oxford Reading Buddy and choose a book from there to read.

Reading Journal Task Wednesday - How is the main character feeling?  How do you know this?


Practise handwriting your spellings each day.  Then use a dictionary or to look up the meaning of only 2 words each day.  Write out the meanings.


Today's Maths lesson is Multiply and divide by 9

Go through the powerpoint. This will help you to understand some of the questions.

Now you can complete the worksheet and challenge yourself with the true and false quiz. 

You do not need to print the worksheet you can do your working out on a piece of paper

Now you can practise your times tables on either Times Tables Rockstars or you can practise your times tables speed at


Do you remember the important archaeological finding that I introduced you to last week? I will reveal what the finding was on Friday so stay tuned!


This week I would like us to take a closer look and learn more about archaeology because it is through archaeology historians have learnt so much about the Stone Age.


Read the PowerPoint below and carry out the first activity, you could do this through discussion with an adult if you like. Then complete the worksheet. You do not need to print this out. Draw your own suitcase onto a piece of paper.


This half-term's Art and Design is linked to our topic, 'Stone Age Rocks'. Look through the virtual tour below and think about the cave paintings at Lascaux, France. It would be even better if you could discuss them with an adult.

Review what you have found out about the Cave Paintings of the Prehistoric Man.

  • What scenes were shown?
  • What did they use to create their art?
  • Where do people do art now and what do they use?
  • Where can we look to replicate this as closely as possible?
  • How can you use that tool to create art?


Task - Go outside to collect ‘tools’ to use for your painting – sticks, moss, leaves, feathers, etc.

Find fruits, berries and mud or simple watered down paint to replicate the berry juices.

Test out and note the ‘tools’ and ‘paint’ you have collected and used.
