Hemlington Hall Academy

Year 4 – Friday 29th January 2021

Today we will be reading the third chapter of ‘A Long Walk to Water’. Our focus today is sequencing key events. Read through the chapter carefully.

Can you sequence these key events?


We will be focusing on how to edit and improve our work. Watch the video here to see how to do that. When we edit our work it’s best to read it out loud. This will help you notice any grammar errors. Your next step is to check if you have used all of our key narrative features.

  • Setting description
  • Fronted adverbials
  • Prepositions
  • Speech
  • Chronological orders.
  • Connecting openers (First… Next… After that… Sometime later…)
  • Sensory description – try to use all five senses.

Finally, on your final check, can you improve any of the vocabulary that you have used?

In maths today, your task it to apply all of your new learning! Can you answer the questions below? For an extra challenge can you make a poster explaining how to find the area of a shape and what area is?


In art we are going to continue to learn about traditional African art: today we are going to look at Ndebele people of South Africa, and how they use bright, bold colours for their clothes, jewellery and even their houses!

Here is your task to try your own Ndebele inspired artwork:
