Year 4 Home Learning – Due in 12th February

Year 4 Home Learning – Friday 31st January

(All learning to be handed in Wednesday 12thFebruary)


Please encourage your child to read for at least 15 minutes at least five times per week. Please record what you have read in your reading record.


Like reading, Spelling is very important for your writing. Spellodrome will have targeted spelling lists each week linking to the lessons in class. Challenge yourself and see how many points you can earn!

Home Learning Menu

Over the next 2 weeks you must complete an activity/series of activities that total at least 15 points. How you choose to do so is up to you! For example, you may choose to do the fifteen-point activity or you could do a ten point and a five point activity; you could also choose to do three five-point activities – it is completely your choice! Have a look at the activity menu below:

15 Points

Letter Writing

Write a letter to your parents as if you were a Roman Soldier away with the Army. What were you doing at that time? What were you eating? Where were you?

Roman Towns

Using Google Earth, find as many Roman towns as you can in Britain. Can you then find the distances between them?

Write a reflection about what you found, as the Romans would have had to walk in between each town around the country.

10 Points

Gladiator School

Design a timetable for a gladiator school. What activities would you get the gladiators to do? How would they train?

Roman Numerals

Create an exciting poster about Roman Numerals and how different numbers are made. Make sure you include the numbers 1 -10, 50, 100, 500, 1000.

Battle Formations

Look at the battle formations the Roman Army used. Draw and label them with how well they worked and when they were used.

The formations we want you to investigate are a line, a phalanx, a tortoise and a wedge.

5 Points

TT Rockstars or Numbots

1 hour (split into at least three chunks) of TT Rockstars or Numbots.


Choose 5 words from the year 3/4 spelling list and practice in the style of personalised spellings (rainbow write, pyramid write or bubble write).

Brave or Foolish

Write a paragraph on whether you think the gladiators in Roman times were brave or foolish.
