Grebes Home Learning 20.7.20

Hi Year 4,

Thank you for your wonderful writing and music from last week – I had a lot of fun reading and listening! Here are some activities for these last two days.

Photo Quiz
Try this photo quiz. Each picture shows one small part of a larger object. Can you guess?

Logic Puzzles
Use your super logical powers to deduce the answers to these increasingly difficult puzzles!

Shape Puzzles
These algebra puzzles will give you a challenge. Each shape or picture represents a number. But which? If you get stuck, try using a “trial and error” approach: give the shape/picture a number and try it out. Didn’t work? Try another number!

It has been brilliant being your teacher over the last two years. Have a wonderful summer holiday. Stay safe and see you soon!

All About Me Poster

To help you transition from Y4 Grebes to Y5 Herons, make a poster about yourself to share with Mrs Edwards. You could use a big sheet of paper and place a picture of themselves in the middle. Then fill up the sheet with pictures, writing, drawings of anything that describes your interests, hobbies, family etc. It can be completed in any format: a diary, a written piece, a Powerpoint. Email it to me ( and Mrs Edwards (

Slow Writing

We have been practising our writing skills using a process called Slow Writing. In Slow Writing, each sentence has a feature or technique that must be included. You have to concentrate on every word you write – that’s why it’s slow!
