Friday 2nd May

Good morning, Year 4. So, after today we have a week off for half term. Well done for all your hard work over the last few weeks. I hope to see some of you today on Zoom.

 

Today's suggestions to keep you busy are:

 

Spelling

Try the homophones wordsearch.

THEN test yourself- have you improved since Monday?

Well. we're looking forward to seeing some of you on Zoom today. Hopefully you have been enjoying the learning activities so far this week.

 

For your Physical Activity today, we thought you might want to try something different for a change, so have a go at the Acrobatic Alphabet! Use the code and spell out words letter-by-letter from the movements given.

Grammar and Punctuation- Direct Speech 2

Use the sheet posted below to help give you more practise with speech punctuation to help with today's writing task.

 

English- writing

Composition goal- Can I write a conversation with correct speech punctuation that gives my reader clues about what my characters are like and how they are feeling? Read Chapter 2 of Charlotte's Web, use the Powerpoint posted below and watch the video to help you.

 

Maths

Use today's activity sheet:

Add and subtract numbers with up to 4 digits using the formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction where appropriate.

 

History – Roman Gods

Have a look through the power point about Roman Gods and see how much you can find out about what they were like.  (Power point attached below)

Now have a go at designing a Roman God of your own.  Think carefully about the powers they would have and how they may be able to help people.  Draw a picture of your God and describe them.

 

Hope to see you later.

 

Have a good day.

Tuesday 5th May

Good morning Year 4.

Well done to all of you who are using the learning opportunities that are here for you, and also a huge well done to all of you who are using MyMaths (especially for your homework tasks), Century, Bug Club and Times Tables Rockstars.

 

Here is your suggested learning for today:

 

English- Writing-

Identify how speech verbs, like other verbs, can be chosen to give us more information; practise adding speech verbs and punctuation. Use the powerpoint presentation posted below and the text from the story- however, you may want to read the text from the screen and not print it off. If you watch the short video, that will also help you to understand what to do.

(Remember, if this looks too tricky, try the SUPPORT writing task instead)

 

Grammar and Punctuation-

Direct Speech- PART 1. See the sheet posted below. This will help you with your writing this week, which is all to do with dialogue.

 

Maths- more addition and subtraction:

Show that addition of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and subtraction of one number from another cannot.

See the daily Maths sheet posted below.

 

Art:
Zentangle hand art
Draw around your hand and fill the shape with repeated patterns. Use the sheet posted below to help explain.

 

And, finally, don't forget to do some physical exercise, such as:

Joe Wicks PE online https://www.youtube.com/thebodycoachtv

Or skip, go for a walk or a bicycle ride.

 

P.S. If you did the Science experiment yesterday, the reason that the water rises up the glass is because the candle uses the oxygen in the air to burn and that leaves a 'space', where the oxygen was, and so the water rushes up to fill that 'space'.

Hope that helps to explain. 

 

Have a good day.

Maths answers- 27th April

Monday 27th April

Good morning Year 4. We hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

This week we will be focusing on Place Value in Maths and we are using a reading text- The Train to Impossible Places- to help inspire our writing.

 

Writing

Use the powerpoint shown, but don't go too far ahead to the answers. It's important to read the text carefully, and use the slides one at a time and follow the instructions. 

(If it looks a bit too tricky, use the pages that are labelled 'support sheets' instead, and follow the instructions on those.)

 

Spelling

We are revising adjectives that end in -ous, so use Spelling frame to test yourself first- start with Rule 11: https://spellingframe.co.uk/spelling-rule/16/11-The-suffix-ous-1-of-2

but if these seem a bit too easy try Rule 12: https://spellingframe.co.uk/spelling-rule/60/12-The-suffix-ous-2-of-2

Then look at the spelling task sheets- the whole week is set out, so just follow the suggestions for Monday.

 

Maths

Use the task sheet. Follow it through step-by-step. If you need to use the lessons on MyMaths as reminder then follow the link. If you do not get through the whole task in 50 minutes then don't worry, and the Challenge is there at the end if you feel you are ready for it.

 

Science

Explore Air resistance

Watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqKFLPntcxs

Then try this experiment at home- see sheet below.

What happens if you use a bigger piece of paper? A heavier weight? Does it fall more quickly or more slowly?

 

Physical activity

Remember to take some time out for some exercise. Go for a walk, or a bike ride, or do some skipping.

Joe Wicks has ideas, as always: https://www.youtube.com /thebodycoachtv  Click on ‘videos’

OR- Try this challenge from Jenny Meadows:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGZ7iDBFJ-0&feature=youtu.be

Friday 24th April

Wow! We are now finishing the first week of the summer term. It was wonderful to see so many of you on Zoom yesterday. You all looked well and ready to worksmiley

 

For today, there is no Maths Activity sheet. Instead we suggest you use the time to explore or catch up with:

Century

MyMaths

Times Tables Rockstars

 

For your physical activity, we wondered if you might like to try setting up a family pentathlon challenge: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0PH0Z88SMs&list=PL6DK6xTdLkmwBkVBUkZZ2L_oTT6VXErNO

 

Your English grammar sheets (on Verbs) and answers are posted below (don't look at the answers too soon!). 

And don't forget to read- perhaps you could write a blurb for the book you are reading at the moment, or for another, favourite, book?

 

And finally, how about a DT exercise: Design and, if possible, prepare a healthy lunchtime meal for yourself and members of your family.  Think carefully about what you could include.

 

Enjoy your day and have a lovely weekend. We'll be in touch again on Monday.

Verbs practice sheets, 24th April

Thursday 23rd April

So, Year 4, your daily activity sheets are show below for today. There are two English exercises- the first is to do with verbs, nouns and adjectives. If you find this quite straightforward, then try the 2nd one as well, which is about proper nouns (names) and common nouns and when to use a capital letter (which quite a lot of you still forget to do, so this could. be good practice).

 

These are your suggested physical activities for today:

 Joe Wicks PE online

Or, from ‘Complete PE           https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxFbsvXOh5M

and        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyODvVXW4_k.

 

For this afternoon, you could try this Art activity:

Use cut up pieces of coloured paper or a magazine to make a mosaic collage picture.

 

Have fun today and remember- don't check the answer sheets too soon!

 

Today’s answers now added- see below (but no cheating😀).
