Hello Year 4, here are this week’s activities to keep you busy.


Learning Objective: I can measure and calculate the perimeter of a rectilinear figure in centimetres and metres.

This week Year 4 will learn how to measure the perimeter of a shape as well as reviewing and revising what you have learnt over the past few weeks.

Perimeter is the distance around a shape. Measure each side and add them together to find the perimeter of a shape.

Look at the help sheet below for examples.

You can draw your own shape, measure the length of each side and add them together to find the perimeter. Make sure you use a ruler and write the unit you have measured in, cm or mm.

If you have access to a computer or tablet click on the following link to create your own shapes and work out the perimeter. 


Have a go at worksheets 11 and 12, review 10 and revision 3 on pages 85 – 102 in your Maths No Problem 4B.

Ask an adult to help if you are unsure what the question is asking you to do.

If you finish all the questions and want an extra challenge, have a go at the problem solving and reasoning questions below.

Science – Living Things and Their Habitats

LO- I can recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways and use classification keys to help group

This week Year 4 will be sorting living things using a classification key. A classification key is a diagram that scientists use to group living things. There are about nine million different types of living things on Earth – and they are all named!

Sorting this large number into groups based on similarities helps scientist to know which living thing is being talked about. Two, very large, groups of living things are animals and plants. We are part of the animal kingdom. These groups are still too big, so they must be sorted further. Animals are split into vertebrates and invertebrates. Vertebrates are animals with backbones and invertebrates are animals without backbones. There are more invertebrates than vertebrates.

All living things can be put into groups based on features they have in common. Within these large groups are many smaller groups that help scientists to identify new species using classification keys.

​​​Below is an example of a classification key that can help to identify different types of mini-beast. It is a series of questions that are answered with either ‘yes’ or ‘no’. You follow the chain for your answers to the next question until you can identify your creature.

Your activity is to complete the classification key below and then create a new one of your own? Remember the answers to the question must have a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ answer. You can use the animal sheets to help when creating your own.
