Leighton Primary School

Week Ten: Beginning Mon 22.6.20


Please find attached a grammar activity sheet (Yr4 Aut Mat 3)  and non-fiction reading comprehension (Ellie Simmonds fact file).

Both have three different ability levels. These are shown by the * stars on the sheets. 1 star being the easiest.

Maths –  Money!  There are 4 daily lessons!

We will be using resources from the White Rose scheme that is used as the basis for the maths teaching at Leighton.

Access the site using this link:

Click on Week 9. Then click on the Red tab (Video links) – this gives access to view a short video that introduces each day’s lesson.

After watching the video, complete the worksheet for that day, or use your Home Learning book or just plain paper to record your answers. The worksheets, and a set of answers, are included as an attachment on this page if you want to use them as a visual resources or print.

PSHE-  Diversity and Communities

To start this new unit of work, you will be focusing on the following objectives. 

• To be able to describe aspects of your identity, and to recognise similarities and differences between yourself and others.

• To recognise difference and respect diversity, including the importance of recognising and challenging stereotypes.

• To know about groups and communities that exist locally, and the roles some people play in the community.

responsibilities of humans towards them.

Please see the attached document with your third and final week of activities. Most of these will be discussion based with an element of drawing and writing at times. If you haven’t done the first week or second week please go to the tab for wb 8.6.20. and 15.6.20 to complete these first.



Part 1: Exploring Freezing experiment!

Last week you were asked to observe the effects of melting. This week you will be observing what happens to a range of different liquids when they are frozen.

For this experiment you will need…

An ice cube tray

A selection of different liquids -honey, golden syrup, olive oil, hand soap, washing up liquid, water

A freezer

Place these liquids into the tray. How do you know they are liquids? Start to think about whether or not they will all freeze? Make some predictions.

Leave for about 4/5 hours and then take out the cube tray.

What do you notice? Feel all the cubes of liquid to observe changes and make comparisons. Can you push your fingers into any of the liquids? All or some? Why?

Take some photos and write a paragraph to explain your findings. Email this to us, we would love to hear what you found out!


Part 2: Evaporation and condensation

Some Solids dissolve in a liquid to form a solution. Sugar dissolves in water too, sweet drinks can contain lots of sugar, but you cannot see it. Dissolving is a reversible change (think back to the experiments you have been set over the last two weeks, are they reversible or irreversible changes?)

For example, evaporating a salt solution by gently heating it will leave behind the solid (salt) as the water turns to water vapour. If the water from the solution is also needed, it must be cooled as it evaporates. The condensation can then be collected.

Think about your socks when they come out of the washing machine. They are wet. How do they dry? What is this process called? Evaporation is the process of a liquid becoming a gas and the particles becoming further apart.
