Good Morning Years 3 and 4 

Here is your home learning for today:

As always, don't forget to share your learning on Kids Zone - we love to see you all and find out what you have been doing.

The work that we would like you to email to us this week is ( - 

Mondays maths - Y3 Compare capacity   Y4 Lines of symmetry

Fridays English - Y3 Poem     Y4 Diary


Remember to use the video lesson to teach you the day's concept. You will need to pause when it asks you to so that you can answer a question, work something out or talk to someone about your understanding. 

When the video lesson ends, you can download the activity sheet and complete your independent work. 

Finally, use the answer sheet to check and mark your work.

For English lessons, we use Oak National Academy. When you visit the website, you will be able to view the full week's English lesson but please only complete one per day. See below for the direct link to today's English lesson.

Year 4 - Reading comprehension: Fact retrieval

Wider Curriculum - Science experiment

Lets get experimenting!

Ice Fishing

ice fish


  • Small paper cups, bowl or an ice cube tray
  • Glass of water
  • String (yarn or kite sting works great)
  • Small stick
  • Salt


  1. Fill the cup or tray up with water and place it in the freezer.  You can also use ice cubes from your freezer and skip this step.
  2. When the water is frozen, remove the ice from the cup or tray.
  3. Put the ice in the glass or bowl of water. The cube will bob up and down in the water and then float on the top.
  4. Place one end of the string from the fishing pole on top of the ice cube and sprinkle salt on the ice where the string is touching. Watch as the water melts slightly and refreezes.
  5. After about 10 seconds, carefully lift the ice cube out of the water with the fishing pole. You caught a fish (ice)!

How it Works:

Ordinary water freezes at (32° F). When you add salt to water, it lowers the water’s freezing temperature-it has to get colder than 32° F to freeze.

How much colder depends on how much salt is mixed in with the water. The salt you sprinkle on the ice cube lowers its freezing temperature and, since the ice cube can’t get any colder than it already is, it starts to melt. A little pool of water forms on top of the ice cube and the string sinks into it. As the ice cube melts, it dilutes the salt/water mixture in the little pool; the freezing point starts to go back up again. The ice refreezes, trapping the string. As soon as the ice cube hardens, you can raise it by lifting the string. All this happens very quickly, of course.

If you liked this experiment why not have a go at the same experiment but make some changes:

Try sugar, pepper, sand, flour, you name it. See what works, and what doesn’t, and try to figure out why!

In Addition...


Read books, leaflets, comics, whatever you can find!

Read to yourself, read to your parents/carers, read to older or younger sisters or brothers, read to extended family or friends over video call - Just read!
