Have a go at everything, and email us with any questions.

Well done, and keep working hard J

 

Lesson 1 - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

Begin your Maths home lesson by practising your times tables. Pick one of the tables (either 4, 6, 7, 8 or 9) and listen to Mr Demaio, before practising your tables in your Maths books.

After this, have a look at the attached White Rose Hub resource. We are continuing with decimals this week, so recap on what you have learnt last week and use your fractions knowledge to help you figure out what is being asked.

Don’t forget to what the White Rose Maths Hub videos, they are really really helpful.

Activity 1 acts as Better and Activity 2 acts as Best. It will help you to start on Better, and move onto Best.

Activity 1: Week 2 Lesson 2 Step 8 – Fractions of a set of objects (2) https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/

Activity 2: Week 2 Lesson 2 Step 8 – Hundredths as decimals https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/

It is important to remember that: Decimals are the same as fractions as they are showing parts of a whole.

Lesson 2 - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

Today we are finishing off our newspaper reports! We will work through our fourth and conclusion paragraph together, using our plan and the example modelled write.

Don’t forget, you can magpie, but make sure you write everything in your own words. Remember: You will be writing the report as if the eruption has just happened, as a reporter from a nearby town. You can create characters from nearby towns, or that managed to escape from Pompeii, that you can ‘interview’ to add quotes to your newspaper report!

Lesson 2 - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

Today we will be writing our second and third paragraphs of our newspaper report. You have done brilliantly so far, so keep it up.

You need to get your newspaper report plan and have a look at what you have planned for your paragraphs today. Then, use my model writing to help you with writing! Don’t forget, you can magpie, but make sure you write everything in your own words. Remember: You will be writing the report as if the eruption has just happened, as a reporter from a nearby town. You can create characters from nearby towns, or that managed to escape from Pompeii, that you can ‘interview’ to add quotes to your newspaper report!

Maybe you could interview people in your home and get them to pretend that they managed to escape Pompeii just in time! Get some real life quotes to make your newspaper report more believable!

Lesson 5 - Spellings – approx. 30 mins:

Today, you will begin learning the ‘sc’ spelling rule, which sounds like an s.

Today, use the spellings you have been practising correctly in sentences. This means you need to know what the word actually means, so maybe get on the online dictionary if you need to. Here is a spelling example:

You must be careful when you descend the stairs, if you trip you could have a bad fall!

Lesson 6 – Plastic Pollution – approx. 45 mins:

Today, you will be starting to create your poster or powerpoint presentation on Plastic Pollution and how to help the people of Huddersfield cut their plastic use. You have got today and tomorrow afternoon to complete this, and I really can’t wait to see what you produce. This is a topic very close to mine and Mrs Walker’s hearts. Have a look back at your learning from last week to recap on what you learnt, especially at your mind map. I will reattach the powerpoint and the videos so you can recap.

David Attenborough's Blue Planet 2 is one of the most informative platforms to learn from, you can find full episodes on BBC iPlayer. But, the videos below are very informative:

Lesson 2 - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

Today we will be starting our newspaper report about the eruption of Pompeii. We are going to work through this together paragraph by paragraph, with examples to show you how the writing should look / the type of language that you should be using. You will be writing the report as if the eruption has just happened, as a reporter from a nearby town. You can create characters from nearby towns, or that managed to escape from Pompeii, that you can ‘interview’ to add quotes to your newspaper report!

Maybe you could interview people in your home and get them to pretend that they managed to escape Pompeii just in time! Get some real life quotes to make your newspaper report more believable!

Today, you need to use what you know to create a newspaper plan, before we write up our first introductory paragraph.

The plan should take you this entire English lesson, so the paragraph can be written in the afternoon session.

See the planning sheet below that you need to fill in, and have a look at mine that I have attached so you can have an idea of how your plan should look!

Use this lesson to recap on what you know already, watch the videos that I have attached below and collect more research to help you understand what happened in the eruption of Mt Vesuvius and to Pompeii.

Ps – The videos are really cool!!!

  • Pyramid writing
  • Word association
  • Look, cover, check
  • Rainbow writing

Lesson 6 – English/History/Geography – approx. 45 mins:

The most historically renowned eruption of all time: Mount Vesuvius and its complete destruction of the Roman town of Pompeii.

Now it is time for us to write our introductory paragraph together. Don’t forget to leave space for a title (it is easier to come up with a title once we have completed our writing).

Features that need to be included in your writing:

Used fronted adverbials to show sequence and vary sentence openings.

Used expanded noun phrases to add more details.

Used speech, with speech punctuation used precisely.

Used professional language and subject specific vocabulary to create a formal tone.

Used headings and sub-heading effectively.

Organised writing into paragraphs.

Written in 3rd person.

Use your planning from this morning, and my example below, to help you write your first paragraph.

Don’t forget capital letters and full stops!

  • Popocatepetl, Mexico

Or challenge yourself to find out about Miss Capewell’s favourite volcano: Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland. Maybe you could even learn to spell and say it (haha)!  

When researching your chosen volcano, find out about: the most recent eruptions; the most destructive eruptions; the location of the volcano; how close by the population lives; what measures have been taken to keep people safe.

Lesson 5 - Geography – approx. 1 hour 15 mins:

Volcanoes.

Dangerous, precarious mounds of rock and lava that tower into the clouds.

They stand still, and we never know when they might just … BLOW!

As this week’s learning is centred on the explosion of Mount Vesuvius and the destruction of the Roman city of Pompeii, we would like you to recap on your knowledge of volcanoes from Year 3 and become expert volcanologists.

We would like you to answer the following questions:

  1. What are volcanoes?
  2. Where are they located?
  3. How are they formed?
  4. Why are they formed?
  5. Why are they so dangerous?
  6. What is the difference between an active volcano, an extinct volcano and a dormant volcano?
  7. Why are there different shapes of volcanoes?
  8. List 5 active volcanoes that exist in the world today.

 

You will be able to answer these questions using the videos below, the powerpoint presentation attached and your own research skills.

I am also challenging you to find some interesting facts that you think Miss Capewell (a complete Geography geek) will enjoy hearing!

You can answer the questions on your lined paper, or you might want to make this into a factual poster with drawn pictures. It is entirely up to you.

Use at least two of the methods listed to help you practise your spellings: rainbow writing; pyramid; word association; look, cover, check; bubble writing; writing in a sentence. Finally practise the ‘-tion’ spellings today.

Lesson 4 – approx. 1 hour:

In this lesson, we would like you to learn about Plastic Pollution.

We have learnt about pollution before. I wonder if you can recall what this is and write a definition for it. After this, you can move onto the learning and see what type of pollution we are beginning to learn about.

This is a topic with a lot to learn, but something that your generation can really make a difference about!

Begin by looking through the PowerPoint below, then have a google search for videos that help you understand what Plastic Pollution is and why we need to do something about it. David Attenborough's Blue Planet 2 is one of the most informative platforms to learn from, you can find full episodes on BBC iPlayer. But, the videos below should get you started and get your incredibly inventive ideas bubbling!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_HBgvmrhGU

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsvWfuM6kkE

Today, all you need to do is create a mind map about what Plastic Pollution is. Over the next week, you will be creating a poster or PowerPoint presentation on how you think we can reduce our Plastic Pollution in Huddersfield, and what you promise you will try to make happen.

If you are stuck on what a mind map is, see the image below to help jog your memory.

Don’t forget that Joe Wicks is posting PE lessons every day this week. Staying fit and healthy is not only good for your body and health, but great for your mind.

Wednesday 25th March 2020 - Day 3 of Home Learning

Good morning Year 4, we hope that your second day of home learning was successful and you are safe, happy and healthy. It has been lovely hearing from all of you.

Today, we would like you to continue spending time adjusting to learning from home, so will be giving you tasks that you will be happy to complete independently. 

 

Lesson 1 - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

Begin your Maths home lesson by practising your times tables. Pick one of the tables (either 4, 6, 7, 8 or 9) and listen to Mr Demaio, before practising your tables in your Maths books. Maybe you could even push yourself and complete a timed one minute challenge using the sheets from your pack!

After this, have a look at the attached White Rose Hub resource. This is continuing with our new block of learning in Maths after fractions (decimals). This is a completely new concept that you are learning, so take your time with the resources and answering the questions. Rewatch the video to watch first to recap what decimals are and how they are similar to fractions.

Making the whole video Option 1: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/

Using tenths as decimals video Option 2: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/

It is important to remember that: Decimals are the same as fractions as they are showing parts of a whole.

I will upload the answers at 2pm so you can mark your work with your highlighters and see how you have done.

Please email us if you are stuck on any of this!

 

Option 1:

Option 2:

Lesson 2 - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

Today you are continuing with your work on Hadrian’s Wall. You will know exactly where you are up to. This might researching Hadrian’s Wall and beginning to plan your presentation in a non-chronological format, or you could be ready to start writing this up!

Don’t rush this work, we really want to see high-quality work, you have a whole week to get this to the standard you would like!

 

ERIC time - silent reading for 30 minutes:

Grab a book, get comfy and enjoy your time getting lost in a fascinating new world.

Lesson 3 - approx 30 minutes:

After your time spent as spelling investigators yesterday, it is now time for you to practise your spellings in the Pink section of your spellings logs. Use at least two of the methods listed to help you practise your spellings: rainbow writing; pyramid; word association; look, cover, check; bubble writing; writing in a sentence. Only practise the ‘-ssion’ spellings today.

Lesson 4 – approx. 1 hour:

Listen to the song Clair De Lune by Debussy (one of Miss Capewell’s favourites). We would like you to spend time appraising this song. Listen to it once with your eyes closed (it is very relaxing so try to not snooze!), and then for a second time thinking about the questions listed below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvFH_6DNRCY

  1. Draw a picture of what you visualise, and explain why this is what you imagine to be happening in a sentence.
  2. Where do you imagine this music would be played?
  3. When do you think this music was written?
  4. How does this music make you feel?
  5. What instruments can you hear?
  6. How many voices can you hear?
  7. What is the tempo of the music? (fast, slow)
  8. Can you find the beat? Clap the rhythm?
  9. Do you enjoy this piece of music?
  10. If you had to describe this piece of music in 3 words, what would they be?

 

Don’t forget that Joe Wicks is posting PE lessons every day this week. Staying fit and healthy is not only good for your body and health, but great for your mind.

Lesson 2 - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

Have a look at the activity labelled 'The Great Wall of England' in your packs. This is a beautiful poem. Continue with the work from where you left off yesterday. This might be practising and performing your poem (I would love to see videos of this), or moving onto researching Hadrian’s Wall and beginning to plan your presentation in a non-chronological format.

Don’t rush this work, we really want to see high-quality work, you have a whole week to get this to the standard you would like!

Time for you to mark your work with your highlighters :) 

If you have made mistakes, have a look back to see if you can find where you went wrong and practise those calculations again.

Monday 23rd March 2020 - Day 1 of Home Learning

Good morning Year 4, we are really missing seeing your smiling faces bounding into our classrooms this morning. Hopefully you can feel our excitement for learning through our daily updates! We have loved already logging onto Purple Mash, Reading Egg, our emails and TT Rockstars and seeing how hard at work you have been. We are immensely proud of you.

Today, we would like you to spend time adjusting to learning from home, so will be giving you tasks that you will be happy to complete independently. 

 

Lesson 1 - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

In your first lesson of Daily Maths, we have an extended Calculation Blast for you to complete to consolidate everything you have learnt so far in Maths. I will upload the answers at 2pm so you can mark your answers with your highlighters!

 

Lesson 2 - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

Have a look at the activity labelled 'The Great Wall of England' in your packs. This is a beautiful poem. Give it a read and start to identify the words you do not understand, and use your meaning breakdown to identify the meanings of the vocabulary. After this, find the activities set below the poem and start work on these. They cannot be completed in one day! Be kind to yourself and give yourself enough time over the week to complete these. 

ERIC time - silent reading for 30 minutes:

Grab a book, get comfy and enjoy your time getting lost in a fascinating new world.

Lesson 4 - approx 45 minutes - 1 hour:

 Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) has his live PE lesson on Youtube starting at 9am that you can catch up with all day. Make sure you try to squeeze this in at some point today, I know I will be!

See if you can convince your family to get involved, it will be a lot of fun I am sure!

The link to his Youtube page is: https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1

Lesson 5 - approx 30 minutes:

Practise the spellings below in the Pink section of your spellings logs for around 30 minutes. These spellings look at the 'sion' ending and how this is different for different root words. Can you find the root word of the spellings ending in '-cian' and '-sion' and investigate what the rule for the suffix ending is?  What do you notice about the words ending in '-ssion' and '-tion'? See if you can find the rules for the spelling, before practising the spellings tomorrow.

Enjoy your learning, we can't wait to see what you produce!

Hello everyone!

Whilst you are learning from home, don't forget to keep practising your times tables. Make sure you do this in a fun way and get yourself moving (and grooving), which will easily be done by watching our favourite Youtuber Mr Demaio! Below are all the links you will need to access all of his great songs.

Don't forget about the weekly yoga lessons we have been enjoying, and keeping your body and mind healthy.

 

4Capewell - the King Dancer challenge is still active, and we will be testing your balance as soon as we are back in class! Have a look at the picture above to help you perfect the move.

I have found a few cool yoga classes that you can join in with on Youtube, all you need is enough space to try out the moves and a screen to watch it on. Try to get the whole family involved!
