Revision - Classification
Monday 29th June
This classification activity is similar to grouping but it’s also based on characteristics (what it looks like). Click on the link below to remind yourself of what classification is. Watch the video and try out the activities at the end.
Using a classification key
Thursday 2nd July
A key is a set of questions about the characteristics of living things.
You can use a key to identify a living thing or decide which group it belongs to by answering the questions. Click on the link below to find out more.

Revision - Classification
Monday 22nd June
This week we are going to revisit classification using different categories.
Today we are using two groups which are living and non living things. Click on the link to access the activity.
Thursday 25th June
Today we will be grouping minibeasts, using more categories. There are eight fact cards with information on each minibeast. Use the information to help place the minibeast in the correct group.

Monday 15th June
This week we are going to revise the work we have done on food chains.
Watch the following video clip to refresh your memory.
Try the food chain challenge. See how many food chains you can make.
Thursday 18th June
Watch this powerpoint presentation to give you a bit more information about food chains. There are also a few questions for you to answer at the end. Good luck!
How Changes in the Environment can
be Dangerous to Living Things
Monday 8th June
People can have a positive and negative effect on wildlife by changing their habitats. Below are examples of negative effects on habitats and the environment.
Litter can be very harmful to wildlife. Take a look at the spider diagram below to find out how.
Click on the link below to watch the you tube video about the effects of littering.
Positive Effects that Humans
Have on the Environment
Thursday 11th June
People can have a positive and negative effect on wildlife by changing their habitats. Below are examples of positive effects on habitats and the environment.
Farmers and gardeners grow plants and flowers, which help create habitats for butterflies and bees, birds and small animals such as hedgehogs. Other measures such as bird boxes, log piles and compost heaps can all help to provide habitats and protect species.
Garden and school ponds provide water for many living things, as well as a safe habitat and breeding place for animals such as frogs, toads, newts, pond snails and dragonflies.
Draw and design your garden so that it creates a positive effect on habitats and the environment. For example, you might include trees, flowers, pond and compost heap. Think about our school garden. Don’t forget to label your design!
Monday 1st June
Hi Year 4. Today we are going to recap the work we have done on habitats. First of all I would like you to watch the you tube video below to remind you of what a habitat is. After you have finished watching the video, test your knowledge by answering the questions in the quiz. Don’t forget to check your answers when you have finished.
After watching the you tube video, answer these questions. You can watch the video as many times as you like if you need to.
1. What is a habitat?
2. Humans are a living organism. Give two more examples of living things.
3. Name four things that living organisms need to survive.
4. Deserts, forests, oceans and rainforest are all types of what?
Changes to habitats
Thursday 4th June
Have you ever thought about how changes to an environment can sometimes cause danger to living things? Watch the video by clicking on the link to find out more.
A change in the habitat of a plant or animal can happen naturally (for example flood, bushfire etc, or through manmade changes (for example building houses, cutting down trees etc).
Name a natural change or a manmade change and explain how this might affect living organism and their habitat.

Evaporation and Condensation
This week we are going to learn about evaporation and condensation. There are two videos for you to watch, which will demonstrate how evaporation and condensation are formed. The first video is from BBC bitesize which has a ‘labelling’ activity for you to try at the end. The second video demonstrates the process of evaporation and condensation.
After you have watched the videos, can you explain evaporation and condensation to an adult?
Thursday 21st May
Evaporation and Condensation in the water cycle
Today we are going to find out how the water cycle works.
Water never leaves the Earth, it simply moves around the ‘water cycle’. The water cycle follows the journey of water from oceans to clouds to rain to streams to rivers and back into the ocean. The water cycle involves the scientific processes of evaporation and condensation.
Watch the video below by clicking on the link to learn more. There is an activity to try at the end.
Would you like to refresh your memory by testing yourself? Open the powerpoint presentation below. Remember to click slide show to begin answering the questions.
Monday 11th May
Freezing and Melting
This week we are going to learn about changing the state of a substance.
There are two short videos for you to watch. The first video is from
BBC bitesize which has a ‘labelling’ activity for you to try at the end.
The second video demonstrates how you can carry out your own freezing and melting experiment (ask an adult for help).
Thursday 14th May
Finding Melting Point
Today we will find out if different substances melt at the same temperature. The video shows an investigation carried out using linseed oil, water and chocolate. Click on the link below.
Now it is time to test what you have learnt so far. Answer the questions in the quiz. You can check your answers after you have finished.
States of Matter
Monday 4th May
Our science topic is States of Matter.
First of all, we need to understand what ‘states of matter’ are. There are two short videos for you to watch. The first video is from BBC bitesize which has a ‘sorting’ activity for you to try at the end. The second video demonstrates how ‘particles’ behave during each state of matter.
Thursday 7th May
Today you will be sorting different ‘states of matter’ into groups.
You will need a sheet of paper, folded into 3 sections. Name one column solid, one column liquid and the other gas (demonstrated below).
Using the pictures on the worksheet, draw or write the name of 3 solids, liquids and gases. Then find 3 items in your home to add to the list. Can you explain your completed work to an adult?
Thursday 30th April
Today we are going to learn about how sound gets fainter as your distance increases.
There is some information for you to read plus two task to complete.
You can see the ripples getting smaller as they spread out across the pond, until they eventually disappear. This is like the way the vibrations of sound get smaller as they spread out over distance, getting quieter and quieter.
Ask someone in your house to speak to you in their normal speaking voice. Now stand in a different room and repeat the task. Did the person’s voice sound fainter, the same or louder?
Click on the link below to watch the video about how the distance from a sound source can affect how loud it will seem.
Your challenge today is to create a string telephone that will transmit the sound of your voice over a distance. Ask an adult to help you.
If you are unable to read the instructions, you can open the word document below.
Monday 26th April
Hi there Year 4. Hope you are all ready to learn more about sound.
Clap your hands together to make a loud sound. Now clap your hands to make a quieter sound. Have you ever thought about what makes a sound louder or quieter?
You can find out by clicking on the link below.
In your own words, explain what happens when you are clapping louder and quieter.
Try to include words like energy, sound waves, high pitch and low pitch.
