Good morning everyone. I was so pleased to be able to join the Year 4 children on Zoom last Wednesday. Both the children in class and the Year 4 children agreed that getting all the Maths and English completed in the morning and having a more relaxed afternoon was working best. Don’t forget that you can contact us via the class email. We do welcome feedback and are very happy to help in any way that we can.
Monday Morning Activity: Tessellations
The children in school like to start each week with some mindful colouring. As you can see the two shapes in this design fit together with no gaps. They tessellate. Create a colourful pattern.
Comprehension: We are continuing to explore the book “History VIP:Mary Anning ” by Kay Barnham with Oak National Academy. Lesson 3 explores how the author uses language.
Plurals: Today we will be working on words that end in ‘y’ and making plurals by changing the ‘y’ to ‘ies’.
(Alternative, easier worksheet for Plurals: Revising plurals that add ‘s’)
Warm-up: Multiplying by 10 – Complete the worksheet from snappy maths x10.
(Alternative, easier worksheet, Robot multiply by 10.)
Main Activity: To calculate perimeters of 2D shapes in cm and mm.
We will be using the measuring skills that we went over last week to jump to Lesson 5 of Oak National Academy Length and Perimeter unit.
Silent Reading: Please spend 15/20 minutes reading quietly by yourself or with someone else. Your younger siblings might like you to read a story to them.
Last week we made drawings of the view from one of our windows inspired by the iPad drawings “My Window” by David Hockney.
This week we are going to draw the view from our window and show a rainy day. Use a black, non-permanent felt pen (or any colour that you have) Draw the view from one of your windows. Then quickly get a cup with a little bit of water in it, put your hand into the water and flick some droplets onto your picture. (Don’t do this more than 3 times) Either leave the picture to dray flat or experiment by making the droplets run over the picture. Here is my attempt of the view from my window.
The children at school really enjoyed this Minecraft Yoga Story.
End of Day Activity: Watch “Newsround” to keep up to date with current affairs.
