Well done everyone!

Love from Mrs da Rocha

Homework 05.11.21

This term we will be learning about journalistic writing. Your task is to gather a range of headlines and an article or two. We would suggest that you gather these examples from newspapers at home or you could visit BBC Newsround alternatively you could visit the First News website or you could try the Twinkl newsroom


This week we are looking at the prefixes; in, im, ir ,il

  • A prefix is a letter or letters added to the start of a word to change its meaning.
  • The prefixes ‘in’,‘im’, 'ir' and 'il' have Latin roots and mean ‘not’ or ‘the opposite of’.
  • Most prefixes are added to the beginning of root words without any change in spelling.





















Homework 21.10.21

We just wanted to take this opportunity to let all the children know how proud we are of them. They have all worked so hard and all deserve a well-deserved break during half term.

In our history topic, the Romans, we have begun to learn about what the Romans brought to Britain. We have already found the following:

  • Brick, cement and stone buildings (some with heating)
  • Sewage systems
  • Long straight roads using concrete to link cities
  • Animals (rabbits, chickens, squirrels)
  • Religion – Temples for the gods and later Christianity
  • Written language – Latin
  • Measures – miles, yards, feet and inches
  • Clocks, coins, numerals
  • Markets, commerce and lots more.

Your task is to choose one or more of the things on the list and research further about them. You can simply record what you find in your home learning book or present it in a different way.


This half term we would like the children to focus on the Year 3/4 statutory spellings and we will choose a selection of them to be tested on the first week back. Friday 5th November. These spellings are on the Year 4 website page and a copy is in the Home Learning books.

Homework 24.09.21

Another very productive week in Year 4, we have been so impressed with all the children as they have been working so hard.

In Science, our topic is ‘Animals and their Habitats’ we would like to set you the challenge to research a topic that answers this question;

What impact do humans have on the habitats/environments of wildlife around the world?

This could be a research project on the crisis caused by plastics in our oceans, the Amazon rainforest, low levels of orangutans in Borneo or something completely different. This could be presented as a PowerPoint, poster, and booklet, piece of art work, a written report or a presentation. We are really excited about this mini project that we are setting for homework and look forward to seeing what you produce.

We would like the completed work by Friday 15th October.
