Science Homework

As part of our ‘Living Things and Habitats’ science topic, we would like you to find out more about the life and work of a well-known naturalist / animal behaviourist, for example, David Attenborough and Jane Goodall. 

Here is a list of suggested activities you may wish to complete about your chosen person:

  • Create a PowerPoint
  • Make a short video about them
  • Compile a fact file
  • Design an eye-catching poster

If you have any of your own ideas, feel free to explore them. We would love you to share what you have been doing with the class. As this is a slightly more in-depth piece of homework, we are going to give you two weeks in which to complete it. Therefore, we would like you to bring in whatever you have done by Friday 30th. Enjoy!

Times Tables Rock Stars

This week, we are taking on some particularly formidable opponents in the form of Year Four! 


In Key Stage 2, we explore nine key aspects of reading in order for children to enable children to fully engage with a text.


The domains we cover: enjoy, decode, define, predict, retrieve, summarise and sequence, infer, compare and explore.

Please read the attached document to find out more about how to support your children in each area.

Please note: some of these texts are meant for the more mature reader. We would advise you to read an online synopsis of each book before purchasing or borrowing to ensure that you are happy for your child to child to read it. If your child would like to discuss any of the themes within these books, they are very welcome to speak to a member of the Upper Key Stage Two team.

Learning Resources


Here are a few suggested learning resources that the children can access at home:



An online version of the numbers game from Countdown. There is no timer so the children can practise using their number knowledge in a fun way. 


A great resource which can help to improve the speed of calculations and knowledge of their times tables.  


This is a great resource for recapping your mathematical knowledge. Our favourite page is the puzzle page.


This website is particularly good for checking mathematical processes as it contains a large number of video explanations and examples.


A fantastic resource for practising techniques used in the SATs arithmetic paper.


We have a new subscription to Times Tables Rock Stars which will help to improve tables skills. We hope you like it as much as we do! 





A great resource for practising some of the more tricky aspects of UKS2 S.P.A.G.


On Education City, children can access a range of activities linked to the English Curriculum.



If you are ever stuck for what to read, or want to get into a new author, then this is a great website which allows you to read extracts from a range of authors.                                                                                                                                                                      




Education city is a fantastic resource where the children can access a range of challenges and lessons from the whole breadth of the Curriculum.    


The BBC Primary website also has a great range of topic material, including video clips and various fun activities.
