Yesterday, you learnt about the Bayeux Tapestry.

I would like you to re-watch the Bitesize video (https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zmc9wmn) to refresh your minds, and look through the notes oyu made about the tapestry from your own research.

Now you know their definitions, I would like you to practise them in two different ways – this could be with rainbow writing; look, cover, check; pyramid writing; or any other method we use in class.

Lesson 5 - History – approx. 1 hour:

As you have been learning about the Normans, you will have heard the word ‘Bayeux Tapestry’ a few times. Well, now is your chance to find out what it was!

To help you learn, you will need to:

  1. Watch the Bitesize video https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zmc9wmn
  2. Read through the powerpoint slides
  3. Complete your own research into the Bayeux Tapestry – when completing your own research, try to write notes down that you think are important – this will help you tomorrow

Once you are happy with your knowledge of what the tapestry is, what it shows and why it is so important, I would like you to have a go at the matching activity below.

In this activity, you must match up the statements to the correct pictures of the original Bayeux Tapestry! Enjoy, and look at the images closely!

Lesson 5 – Spelling – approx. 15 mins:

Have a look at the words below:

I would like you to find the definition of these words, and write them in your spellings logs alongside the word.

Tomorrow we will practise them, and on Thursday we will use them in sentences.

Lesson 5 - History – approx. 1 hour:

Well, you are correct!

The Norman Conquest occurred in 1066, when William the Conqueror invaded Britain from France. He desperately wanted to become King of England.

But, there was a problem. The Anglo-Saxon King Harold was King of England, and would fight anyone who tried to invade him.

The three main rivals for the throne were:

  • Harold Godwinson
  • Harald Hardrada
  • William of Normandy

You can make your own from scratch, or use this as a scaffold. It is totally up to you. Don’t forget, your information needs to be accurate, and every comic strip needs artwork!!

The three main rivals for the throne were:

  • Harold Godwinson
  • Harald Hardrada
  • William of Normandy

When Edward the Confessor died, Harold Godwinson, Earl of Wessex, was immediately crowned king and became Harold II. The royal council, known as the Witan, supported him. He gathered an army to defend the kingdom.

Harald Hardrada was king of Norway. He invaded Yorkshire with a fleet of ships, but was defeated and killed by Harold's army at the Battle of Stamford Bridge.

While Harold II was in the north of England fighting Hardrada, William, Duke of Normandy invaded Sussex. Harold rushed back south to fight him.

On 14 October 1066, Harold II fought William's army at the Battle of Hastings and lost. Harold was killed.

William was crowned king of England on Christmas Day 1066, in Westminster Abbey.

You might have already spotted that each word has is either a root word, or a root word + suffix.

I wold like you to match up the root words with the correct suffix endings, and see if you can identify what the rule is.

What is the suffix ending we are learning about?

What changes when you add the suffix to the word?

This is your investigation time! Consider yourself a spelling detective, trying to find out what happens when you add this suffix onto the root word.

Lesson 5 – PSHE – approx. 30 mins:

For this lesson, you do not need to make any notes, but you do need an older family member with you so you can talk about a very important topic.

As we know, everyone is different, and that is a great thing. We might look different, have different beliefs or opinions, wear different clothes, or enjoy different things. But difference is diversity, and that is the best thing we could ever wish for.

Have a watch of the attached video, which looks at the topic of racism. I would like you to watch the video twice, and then talk to the member of family about what you have learnt. If you have any questions, I am sure they would be happy to answer and chat about the meaning behind the video.

After this, send an email to your teacher telling us: Why racism is not ok, why it should be stopped and why it is great to live in a diverse society.

Lesson 5 - History – approx. 1 hour:

Chocolate.

Ah, gorgeous chocolate.

A favourite of many.

But, why do we have chocolate? Well, we have the Ancient civilisation of Maya to thank for that!

Although the Maya weren’t scoffing the bars we know and love today.

It all starts with the cacao bean. Yes, we spelled that right - cacao is the Spanish word for chcahuatl, which is what Aztecs called the beans chocolate is made from. It’s thought that English traders misspelled cacao when they brought the beans home, and so cocoa stuck.

Back to the Maya though. They would dry, grind, and mix the beans with water to create a drink. You might think yum, hot chocolate - in fact it was quite bitter and frothy, and was often mixed with chilli. After the Aztecs conquered the Maya, they went berserk for the stuff.

The Mayans and the Aztecs believed (as do Miss Capewell and Mrs Walker) that chocolate was a gift from the gods. The Aztecs in particular revered the drink - they gave it to victorious warriors after battle, would use it during religious rituals, and even used cacao beans as currency. To them, cacao beans were more valuable than gold! Next time someone says money doesn’t grow on trees, you’ll know what to tell them.

The Aztec word for the bitter drink is ‘xocolatl’ which some think the modern word chocolate comes from. It bears a resemblance… sort of.

Others think chocolate comes from the Aztec word ‘choqui’, which means warmth.

Today: I would like you to research chocolate and find out how it got from the Ancient Maya in Mesoamerica, to Huddersfield.

Who brought it over?

Who started eating / drinking it?

Have a look on this BBC article, which gives you all of the information that you will need: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zngsqp3

This is a note taking exercise, but you can present the facts that you discover however you would like! Maybe it could be in art form? Maybe a poster? Maybe a video? It is your choice entirely.

Enjoy! And don’t get TOO hungry.

 

Lesson 5 – Spelling – approx. 15 mins:

Today you will be focusing on homophones.

Look at the spellings below, link them up to their homophone and find a definition for each of the words. We will be practising these spellings for the rest of the week, so today you need to find out what they mean so you can use them correctly later in the week.

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

Once you have planned your comic strip, you’re now ready to start on the ‘real-thing’! I would recommend drafting your writing first then edit your work before adding to your final copy.

 

On your final copy, draw grid with 6-8 sections then do your writing first before adding your illustrations and speech bubbles afterwards this will ensure that you have enough space.

 

Don’t forget to use the following criteria:

  • Accurate punctuation.
  • include a question
  • include an exclamation
  • descriptive vocabulary Use Monday’s wordle
  • fronted adverbials demarcated with a comma

 

We have attached word banks to help you carefully select your vocabulary. You could also online dictionaries and thesauruses to help.

 

Take your time and make sure that your writing and illustrations are of the highest quality.

We look forward to receiving photographs of your work.

Annotate with the features such as speech, description, action. Have another look at the link below for further ideas.

https://www.imagineforest.com/blog/how-to-create-a-comic-strip/

This link suggests a comic strip of 3 boxes, but we know that you can do much better than that. 6 - 8 boxes would be ideal. You will need to get out you summaries from Tuesday’s lesson as these will help you with your re-telling of the story. Don't forget that you can also watch Tuesday's animation again to help you extend your story!

 

To plan, draw a grid with 6-8 sections and quickly jot down each section of the story into the 6-8 boxes.

Once you have planned your comic strip, you’re now ready to start on the ‘real-thing’! I would recommend drafting your writing first then edit your work before adding to your final copy.

 

On your final copy, draw grid with 6-8 sections then do your writing first before  adding your illustrations and speech bubbles afterwards this will ensure that you have enough space.

 

Don’t forget to use the following criteria:

  • Accurate punctuation.
  • include a question
  • include an exclamation
  • descriptive vocabulary Use Monday’s wordle
  • fronted adverbials demarcated with a comma

 

We have attached word banks to help you carefully select your vocabulary. You could also online dictionaries and thesauruses to help.

 

Take your time and make sure that your writing and illustrations are of the highest quality.

We look forward to receiving photographs of your work.

ERIC time - silent reading for 30 minutes:

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

Activity 4

  • To construct a simple series electrical circuit, identifying and naming its basic parts, including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers
  • To identify whether or not a lamp will light in a simple series circuit, based on whether or not the lamp is part of a complete loop with a battery
  • To recognise that a switch opens and closes a circuit and associate this with whether or not a lamp lights in a simple series circuit

Pre-task: Talk with your family about how electricity gets from its source to an appliance.

 

Work through the following activities and explore creating electrical circuits:

http://www.learningcircuits.co.uk/learning.html

 

When you get onto circuit basics, you will see that electrical components are shown as universal symbols, you may wish to print off the following resource

 

Matching game - circuit symbols photos and definitions

Cut out or copy the images, definitions and symbols cards, give them a shuffle and then match them up. 

This can be used to learn and then consolidate your understanding of electrical symbols.

 

Extra information and complete/incomplete circuit activity can be found on the powerpoint - Lesson Presentation Electrical Circuits

After you have finished working through all the online activities, complete the final task to show what you have learned. Fill in the thought bubble with your new knowledge.

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

Good morning Year 4! We hope you have enjoyed learning about Ramadan.

Below is your work for the day, we hope you enjoy it!

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

Well done, and keep working hard. We are so proud of you J

 

Lesson 1 - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

Have a go at the starter for today, it should warm up your brains ready for the maths work ahead.

After this, have a look at the White Rose Hub videos. I would suggest that you use the videos for better, then complete better; and the same for best. These are the closest you will get to teacher input, so they will really help with your learning.

Lesson 2 – English - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

To Show my understanding of a text

For your English lesson today you are going to reread the text – The Hero Twins and answer the questions below. Today, you should be more familiar with the text so use your skills of skimming and scanning and zooming in to help you find the part of the text that will help you answer the questions.

For the next two days you will be creating a comic strip retelling of The Hero Twins. You may wish to visit the following link as research that will help you complete your task:

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

Today you are learning about INVISIBLE LINES!

There are invisible lines that mark our globe, these are known as Longitude and Latitude. They help to locate areas around the world.

 

What is latitude and longitude?

To help locate where a place is in the world, people use imaginary lines:

  • To find out how far north or south a place is, lines of latitude are used. These lines run parallel to the Equator.
  • To find out how far east or west a place is, lines of longitude are used. These lines run from the top of the Earth to the bottom.

Watch the video below to help you understand this a little bit better.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvsfr82/articles/zd4rmfr

 

Now, there is one more set of imaginary lines – meridians. These are more commonly known as TIME ZONES! You will probably already know that if you live in Huddersfield, someone that lives in Australia lives in a different time of the day. Often being the total opposite! When in the UK it is morning, and in Australia it is night. This makes it very difficult to have a good old facetime chat with your friends!

 

  • Time zones are divided by imaginary lines called meridians which run from the North Pole to the South Pole.
  • There is an imaginary line running through the UK called the Prime Meridian . It runs through a place in London called Greenwich .

 

These videos will really help you to understand why parts of the earth are in night time and day time at different times: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zkh6n39

To compare texts.

For your English lesson today you are going to watch short animation about the Hero Twins and then compare this with a written text. 

Task 1

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jojLJNn87fU  This will help you with the pronunciation of the tricky names- Hunahpu and Xbalanque

Task 2

Have your dictionary work from yesterday to hand.

Now read the text. As you read, you will notice that the tricky words from yesterday’s task have been highlighted. Think about these words carefully- do they have a different meaning in the context of the text? If so note them down.

Whilst reading, don’t forget your active reading strategies: meaning breakdown- linking tricky words within the text, visualisation and empathising with the characters. 

Task 3

What you need to do now is complete the Venn diagram below ( sketch it out on a piece of paper) adding notes about the text and the animation in the relevant section. The intersection where the circles overlap is where you write what is the same in both the text and animation.

Try to add features such as:

  • Dialogue
  • Challenging vocabulary
  • Clear story sequence
  • Paragraphs
  • Ease of understanding
  • More detail-extended story
  • Which telling of the story did you prefer?

 

 Task 4

Now it’s time to write a summary of the story-The Hero Twins. This needs to be done as brief notes. You will be using these for Thursday and Friday’s writing task.

Listen closely to see how many instruments you believe to be playing.

Enjoy this beautiful music from the Romantic era.

Lesson 6 – RE – approx. 1 hour:

Today, you will be learning about the Islamic festival of Ramadan.

Before you start your learning, I wonder if you could spend 2 minutes with a family member discussing what you think Ramadan is. Once you think you might know, write down a definition at the top of your page.

Now, watch the two videos below:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zpdtsbk/articles/zjc2bdm

https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/23286976

We are learning about Ramadan today as the religious festival is occurring as we speak!

During the month of Ramadan, Muslims won't eat or drink during the hours of daylight. This is called fasting.

 

Ramadan remembers the month the Qur'an (the Muslim holy book) was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. The actual night that the Qur'an was revealed is a night known as Lailut ul-Qadr ('The Night of Power').

 

When is Ramadan?

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. The exact dates of Ramadan change every year. This is because Islam uses a calendar based on the cycles of the Moon.

In 2020 in the UK, Ramadan will begin in the evening of Thursday 23 April and will end on Saturday 23 May  - that is right now!

How is Ramadan celebrated?

Most Muslims fast between dawn and sunset. Fasting allows Muslims to devote themselves to their faith. It is thought to teach self-discipline and reminds them of the suffering of the poor. However, children, pregnant women, elderly people and those who are ill or travelling don't have to fast.

During Ramadan, it is common to have one meal (known as the suhoor ), just before sunrise and another (known as the iftar ), directly after sunset.

 

Eid ul-Fitr

The end of Ramadan is marked by a big celebration called ' Eid ul-Fitr ' (the Festival of the Breaking of the Fast).

Muslims are not only celebrating the end of fasting, but thanking Allah for the strength he gave them throughout the previous month.

Mosques hold special services and a special meal is eaten during daytime (the first daytime meal for a month).

During Eid ul-Fitr Muslims dress in their finest clothes, give gifts to children and spend time with their friends and family. Muslims will also give money to charity at Eid.

 

Your task:

We would like you to learn about Ramadan, and create a set of fact cards that share briefly what Ramadan is, why it is celebrated and how it is celebrated! You can decorate the cards in vibrant colours and make them stand out. Then, you can have a go at teaching a member of your family about Ramadan using your fact cards. Maybe you could even test them and see how much they remember!

Task 1 edit & re-draft-   grab a coloured pen and re-read yesterday's writing with a member of your family. Read slowly and aloud do that you can hear where you need to pop in the missing punctuation and change any verb tenses that do not make sense. Don't forget to look out for those tricky spellings. Use your online dictionaries to help with corrections. Maybe you could make some changes with the description and use a thesaurus to look for better synonyms.

 

Task 2

Now - the exciting bit.  You are going to create your own story book to share with your family and friends. You can do this on paper or create a PowerPoint or word process using Microsoft word or Publisher. This needs to be of the highest quality and have illustrations to go with each stage of your redrafted story.

 

Once you have re-drafted and illustrated your story, you will need to create a front cover with a brilliant drawing and the neatest lettering ever to show who has written and illustrated this book.

 

Next you will need to add a blurb to the back cover. Work through the Powerpoint Presentation- Examples of Blurbs to help you with ideas.  Have a look at your own books too!

How many different types of electricity can you name? 

 

Open up the PowerPoint - Different types of electricity and read through it.

Which types of electricity are good for our environment- renewable?

Which types of electricity are not good for our environment - non-renewable?

After watching the video and taking notes, have a think about the types of renewable electricity sources we should be using as responsible citizens.

 

Think about how you could present this information:

  • You could dress up as a scientist and make a video. Take photos of this for us to upload as video files are too large!
  • You could make fact file cards and maybe make a storage box to keep them safe
  • You may wish to do an audio recording- we may be able to up load these.

Now think carefully about how you want your story to end.

Show ideas below. Which is the most effective?

It was all a dream- this would not be a good end to a story as it makes the reader feel as though the author has got bored of their writing and want the story to quickly end.

The following two ideas would be far more suitable  

  • He learned a valuable lesson- don’t be carried away by your imagination - this has a moral to the story
  • Out of the corner of his eye, he saw a flash of light. Was this really the end of the nightmare? - this suggests that the story

Today we'll be writing our resolution. This is where our dilemma or problem is solved. Our main focus will be punctuation again, but also not forgetting what we have already included in our opening and build up and dilemma.

 

Task 2

Before you start to write, have a look at my plan below, remember that we are only writing the events/resolution  today and I'll need some help with my Modelled write as I have forgotten to add any punctuation, again. So before you write your own, you'll need to edit mine! Coloured pens at the ready to add capital letters, full stops, commas, apostrophes and speech punctuation.

Lesson 5 - Geography – approx. 1 hour:

Today, we are continuing to find out more about the Ancient Civilisation of Maya.

The Maya civilisation began long ago in a place called ' Mesoamerica '. This huge area is made up of Mexico and part of Central America.

The Mayas built amazing cities like Tikal (which they called 'Yax Mutal') and Palenque. Even though they lived in different cities, ruled by different kings and queens, the Mayas shared a lot of common beliefs and traditions.

They were experts at reading the stars and even built their cities as a map of the sky! They were also inspired by the creatures of the forest and shared many legends about animals, plants and nature spirits.

Your task is: Create a fact file about Ancient Maya using the resources we have given you below.

Today, you are creating a beautiful fact file about the Mayans.

  1. Where was the Maya Civilisation?
  2. What was the names of their cities
  3. How long ago did it exist?
  4. What did they believe in?
  5. Why did they build temples?

Monday 4th May 2020 – Day 21 of Home Learning

Good morning Year 4! We hope you’ve had a lovely weekend, and that the weather was nice enough for you to get outside.

Below is your work for the day, we hope you enjoy it!

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

Well done, and keep working hard. We are so proud of you :)

 

Lesson 1 - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

Have a go at the starter for today and sequence the numbers. Remember, you need to look at what has happened to the numbers to then figure out what is next in the sequence.

Eg: 3, 5, 7, __, 11, ___, ___

I can see that there is an increase of 2 between 3 and 5, so the sequence must be increasing by +2. That means that:

3, 5, 7,  9 , 11, 13, 15

After this, have a look at the White Rose Hub video on multiplication.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/

We are focusing on multiplication today and tomorrow. So, choose your starting point, use the videos and the examples on your worksheets, and multiply away!

This should be an activity you can complete happily, as it is just consolidating what we have already learnt this year.

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

Lesson 2 – English - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

Task 1 edit & re-draft 

Grab a coloured pen and re-read yesterday's writing with a member of your family. Read slowly and aloud do that you can hear where you need to pop in the missing punctuation and change any verb tenses that do not make sense. Don't forget to look out for those tricky spellings. Use your online dictionaries to help with corrections. Maybe you could make some changes with the description and use a thesaurus to look for better synonyms.

To write a dilemma to my story

Today we'll be writing our dilemma this is where our story gets exciting. Our main focus will be punctuation but not forgetting what we have already included in our opening and build up.

 Work through the Punctuation recap PowerPoint and then as you write try to use some of the accurately especially  . , ? !

 

Task 2

Before you start to write, have a look at my plan below, remember that we are only writing the dilemma today.

I'll need some help with my Modelled write as I have forgotten to add any punctuation. So before you write your own, you'll need to edit mine! Coloured pens at the ready to add: capital letters, full stops and commas

 

on the night of the storm edward nervously trembled his heart a bass drum  beat a hurried rhythm within his chest  Looming in the darkest corner of his room was a mysteriously alarming shadow as Edward rubbed his eyes there staring right back at him was a menacing and evil form he knew he was now face to face with his worst nightmare because there lurking in the corner was the blood-sucking vampire

 

Below, is my corrected modelled write. How accurate were you with your editing?

On the night of the storm, Edward nervously trembled. His heart, a bass drum beat a hurried rhythm within his chest.  Looming in the darkest corner of his room was a mysteriously alarming shadow. As Edward rubbed his eyes, there staring right back at him was a menacing and evil form. He knew he was now face to face with his worst nightmare because there lurking in the corner was the blood-sucking vampire.

 

Task 3

Now, it's your turn to write your dilemma. Don't forget to add powerful description to keep the interest of your reader; fronted adverbials to open sentences, and of course accurate punctuation.

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

Today, we are finding out more about the Ancient Civilisation of Maya. Now we know the region that they came from – Mesoamerica – we now need to learn about who they were, how they lived and what they believed in.

Today, you will be finding out about The Mayans by researching them.

The Maya civilisation began long ago in a place called ' Mesoamerica '. This huge area is made up of Mexico and part of Central America.

The Mayas built amazing cities like Tikal (which they called 'Yax Mutal') and Palenque. Even though they lived in different cities, ruled by different kings and queens, the Mayas shared a lot of common beliefs and traditions.

They were experts at reading the stars and even built their cities as a map of the sky! They were also inspired by the creatures of the forest and shared many legends about animals, plants and nature spirits.

Your task is: Create a fact file about Ancient Maya using the resources we have given you below.

Today, you just need to make comprehensive notes, so that tomorrow you can create a beautiful poster style fact file all about Ancient Maya.

You may want to make notes about the following areas:

  1. Where was the Maya Civilisation?
  2. What was the names of their cities
  3. How long ago did it exist?
  4. What did they believe in?
  5. Why did they build temples?

Task 2

To write a build-up to my story

Today we will be writing the build up to our Nightmare man story.  The expectation here is to use FRONTED ADVERBIALS to link sentences and paragraphs. We have added a fronted adverbial vocabulary word bank to help with ideas.

Before writing, have a good look at the modelled write below.  If you have downloaded this as a word document you could click on the text highlight icon and highlight the FRONTED ADVERBIALS (notice how they have a comma to separate them). This will help to focus on adding these features to your own writing.

Do you notice how we have used the planning notes from the red section of our plans and have added detail?

Also, before starting your writing, compare the modelled write below to the planning from the previous activity. REMEMBER- WE ARE ONLY WRITING THE BUILD-UP. Please don't move onto the dilemma as there will be another teacher modelled write for you to look at and help you along the way.

This is only a very short piece of writing so make sure that you have included at least a couple of FRONTED ADVERBIALS

This writing can be hand written or word processed. Please save all of your work because at the end of these sequenced activities you may wish to create your own illustrated book that you can share with friends once we're back to school.

Teacher model of build up

Slowly and quietly, Edward took his time as he made his way to bed.  He knew that the petrifying images would gradually enter his mind once again.  Regrettably, it was a sad fact that his dad never believed a word that Edward said.

Lesson 2 – English - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

To write an opening to my story

Welcome to the next part of our story writing project where we will be writing the opening to our story.  This is not a long piece of writing but the expectation is that you will challenge yourself to 'grab' your reader's attention.

Before writing, have a good look at the modelled write below.  If you have downloaded this as a word document you could click on the text highlight icon and highlight the words and phrases that describe your character.   You could then highlight in another colour, the different sentence starters and also the speech punctuation.   This will help to focus on adding these features to your own writing.

A word bank has been included- please use to help you with powerful description.

Do you notice how we have used the planning notes from the red section of our plans and have added detail?

Also, before starting your writing, compare the modelled write below to the planning from the previous activity. REMEMBER - WE ARE ONLY WRITING THE OPENING. Please don't move onto the build-up as there will be another teacher modelled write for you to look at and help you along the way.

This writing can be hand written or word processed. Please save all your work because at the end of these sequenced activities you may wish to create your own illustrated book that you can share with friends once we're back to school.

Opening – Teacher’s model

Once, there was a young boy who was called Edward. Now, Edward (who was a skinny little mouse) was absolutely scared of everything. If anyone was to pull a face or jump out at him, he would shake like a leaf. In fact, Edward was a trembling jelly which caused his friends at scouts to call him a wimp. Unfortunately, his fears often infuriated his parents.

 “Go on Now Edward. Don’t be such a softy!” exclaimed his Dad late one evening.

Lesson 5 - Geography – approx. 30 mins:

Yesterday you continued writing your speech after researching about the endangered animals of the grasslands.

You found out:

  1. What does endangered mean?
  2. Which animals are endangered?
  3. Why are the grasslands so important?
  4. Why are so many species becoming endangered?
  5. Can you find out about one or two species in detail that are endangered?
  6. What can we do to help?
  7. What is conservation?
  8. What does sustainable mean?

After answering these questions, you should be feeling incredibly passionate about protecting our wildlife in the Grasslands.

Today, I would like you to finish writing your powerful speech. It does not need to be long; it just needs to carry a powerful message: Save our animals.

 

A speech is a formal talk given to an audience. The language of a speech should target and interest the listeners. So, if you are targeting other KS2 pupils, use language that you would want to hear that would interest you. But make sure the vocabulary is powerful too.

 

Today, I would like you to draft the ending of your speech. It should include facts, powerful statements and persuasive language. Don’t forget to use powerful vocabulary, and modal verbs (must, should, shall, need) to make it clear that the audience have to do something to make a difference.

The purpose of your speech is to inform the audience of the two endangered species you have chosen, why they are endangered, and what must be done to help these species.

This draft should be finished today so you can present it however you choose tomorrow! It could be: a neat write up, a typed up copy, a powerpoint slide or even a video of you reading the speech!

 

Lesson 6 – Art – approx. 45 mins:

Since we have been learning so much about endangered animals, I wanted to have a go at sketching an endangered animal. One of the most at risk animals in the world is the beautiful tiger. An animal of such beautiful that I thought it would be fun to have a go at sketching one.

But I didn’t know where to start! So, I found a ‘how to draw a tiger’ video on Youtube, and it is excellent.

I would love for you to have a go at sketching this incredible animal. Follow the step by step instructions of the video and have a look at my pictures I have taken throughout the sketching process to help you draw this terrifying but magnificent animal.

Lesson 2 – English - approx 1 hour 15 mins:

Welcome to the 3rd stage of your story writing project.

 

  1. Recap the Nightmare Man from activity story by re-reading the story.

 

  1. What we did next was summarise the story and add it to a grid step by step.

 

Our grid shows an opening, build-up, dilemma- events and ending.

Have a look at the model below:

Can you see how we have organised the story?

 

As this is the first time you have seen this, you can use our summary to help you plan your own story which has an opening, build-up, dilemma- events and ending. 

All we have to do is to change the name of the character, the 'thing' that the character finds scary.

Have a look at my model on the next page:

Talk about the changes we have made to the story in my plans.  This is such a simple way of planning your own story.

  1. Use our summary on the planning sheet we have included to help you plan your own story. You don't even have to print it off - just down load it and word process your own planning. We've not added detailed description as we'll do that as we write each section. Of course, you may wish to jot down challenging vocabulary as this may pop into your mind as you plan. It would be a shame to forget your ideas!  

There you go! Your plans are ready for your own story which we will do section by section each day.

E.g Tomorrow you will be writing the opening. But, don't worry, there will be a teacher's modelled write just like we always have school.

After answering these questions, you should be feeling incredibly passionate about protecting our wildlife in the Grasslands.

Today, I would like you to continue writing your powerful speech. It does not need to be long; it just needs to carry a powerful message: Save our animals.

 

A speech is a formal talk given to an audience. The language of a speech should target and interest the listeners. So, if you are targeting other KS2 pupils, use language that you would want to hear that would interest you. But make sure the vocabulary is powerful too.

 

Today, I would like you to draft the main section of your speech. It should include facts, powerful statements and persuasive language. Don’t forget to use powerful vocabulary, and modal verbs (must, should, shall, need) to make it clear that the audience have to do something to make a difference.

The purpose of your speech is the inform the audience of the two endangered species you have chosen, why they are endangered, and what must be done to help these species.

You have plenty of time this week to draft your speech. I suggest you get your draft copies completed by Thursday so you can present it however you choose for the Friday. You will eventually present these speeches however you choose. It could be: a neat write up, a typed up copy, a powerpoint slide or even a video of you reading the speech!

Watch this video to help you get your speech ready: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zv7fqp3/articles/z4w96v4

You will be excellent at this, because you are all so passionate about the world we live in and the people and animals that live in it, and making sure we keep everyone safe, happy and healthy. No animals should be endangered, and we must do what we can to protect them.

Lesson 6 - Spelling - approx. 25 mins:

In the pink section of your spelling logs, I would like you to practise six of the statutory spellings.

Practise these twice, using pyramid writing, rainbow writing or look, cover and check. Then, write them out in a sentence in your best handwriting (this means it must be joined!)

The spellings for this week are:

 

accessible                                                 actually

believe                                                      experiment

How did you feel as you read the Nightmare man. How did Pie Corbett create these feelings?  What vocabulary choices did he make? How do we know that these were successful?

 

Task 1 - Highlight effective words and phrases that created suspense within the story.

When we are thinking about writing stories, we need to think about the words that we can use for effect and impact.  To make this an exciting story, to ‘grip’ your reader, we will need to use lots of powerful verbs and description.

We can practise choosing effective vocabulary by writing a poem that paints a picture with words.

 

Have a look at the model below:

Now, it’s your turn to have a go!

Use the scaffold below to help you organise your thoughts.

Remember to choose challenging vocabulary - adjectives, nouns, verbs. You can use online dictionaries and thesauruses to help up-level your words choices.

At school, we really enjoy completing our lovely music journals. Every half term, we listen to a different period of music as a school and appraise the music.

The half term we are studying the Romantic period of music, an incredibly beautiful era of music that is very different to what we have listened to before. I can’t wait to hear what you think of it!

We will be studying the following composers:

Pierre Rode

Hector Berlioz

Franz Schubert

Today, we are listening to Pierre Rode’s Caprice no. 6. Your task is to listen to the music and visualise the picture the music paints in your mind. https://youtu.be/TyyLQk3YvTY

Hello Year 4 Authors,

We are inviting you to take part in our story writing project.   Each day you will be set a task that will lead you through exploring a text, planning, editing, redrafting and publishing your own scary story.

Try to remember all the techniques that we have used in our writing at school. Why not become a real author and research and find the 'tools' that you will need, e.g. word banks, dictionaries and thesauruses.

Today, you will be exploring the text The Nightmare Man and completing some comprehension questions on the text. You need to read the text, and then work through the questions below. Don’t forget the comprehension skills that you have learnt throughout the year, such as: skimming and scanning, meaning breakdown, visualisation and empathising with characters.

Please email your year 4 teachers to let us know how you are getting along.  If you are allowed to have your photograph on our school website, ask your parent/s to take a picture and email it back to us. 

We look forward to seeing and hearing about how you are getting along.

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 30 minutes:

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!

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

After watching Lion King twice this weekend, I have been inspired by the incredible animals of the grasslands. These animals are at risk of extinction, thus are therefore endangered species.

Today, I would like you to discover what ‘endangered’ means, and what animals of the grasslands are worryingly endangered, and why they are at risk.

Attached is a document to read from the WWF – the World Wide Fund for Nature – a powerpoint slide and a video to watch to inspire your work.

Today is the research phase, so you must take your time with this. With your research you can create a spider diagram, a bullet-point list or word documents. Whatever and however you record the research, make sure you keep it in a safe place, and even send a picture to me (Miss Capewell). Tomorrow you will be using this research to help you argue for better protection of animals and their natural habitats.

You need to research:

  1. What does endangered mean?
  2. Which animals are endangered?
  3. Why are the grasslands so important?
  4. Why are so many species becoming endangered?
  5. Can you find out about one or two species in detail that are endangered?
  6. What can we do to help?
  7. What is conservation?
  8. What does sustainable mean?

You will be excellent at this, because you are all so passionate about the world we live in and the people and animals that live in it, and making sure we keep everyone safe, happy and healthy. No animals should be endangered, and we must do what we can to protect them.

Friday 24th April 2020 – Day 15 of Home Learning

Good morning Year 4! We hope your lessons yesterday were successfully and interesting. It has been great hearing from you and seeing all of your excellent work. It is your last day of home learning for the week, so work hard and think about the sunny weekend that lays ahead!

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

Well done, and keep working hard :)

 

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. Today is Friday Maths Challenge day!

Work through the more difficult questions with your family. Remember: Teamwork makes the dream work!

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

Lesson 2 – English - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

To write a poem

Today we are going to write a poem based upon our time spent safely at home and carrying out our online learning activities.

We will use the poem below as a model to help us. Read it carefully and talk about it with your family.  It really does show how very much all our NHS workers do for us.

This poem was written by Michael Rosen for the 60th anniversary of the NHS. It has even more meaning at the moment.

 

These are the hands
That touch us first
Feel your head
Find the pulse
And make your bed.

These are the hands
That tap your back
Test the skin
Hold your arm
Wheel the bin
Change the bulb
Fix the drip
Pour the jug
Replace your hip.

These are the hands
That fill the bath
Mop the floor
Flick the switch
Soothe the sore
Burn the swabs
Give us a jab
Throw out sharps
Design the lab.

And these are the hands
That stop the leaks
Empty the pan
Wipe the pipes
Carry the can
Clamp the veins
Make the cast
Log the dose
And touch us last.

Now have a look at how the poem has changed it to show what a teacher's life is like as Mrs Walker & Miss Capewell work from home.

Look carefully at how each line starts and use this to start each stanza/verse of your poem.  It doesn't have to be a long poem but try to get a bit of emotion - how you're feeling into the final stanza.

Once you have written it, edit it looking out for those spelling errors and then redraft it into neat. Some of you may wish to add illustrations.  Again this work needs to be of the highest quality. It would be lovely to 'publish' your poems into a class anthology when we get back to school.

Lesson 2 – English - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

Today you have a reading activity to complete, using the text that we looked at on Monday. Try to use as many of your reading strategies as possible to help you understand the text.

 

  • Zoom Out - look at the features and layout of the text to help you understand what type of text you are reading.
  • Zoom In - look at the punctuation - How many different types of punctuation have been used? What is their purpose?
  • Is there any tricky vocabulary? How can you work out the meaning in context without getting out a dictionary?
  • Talk to your family about the reading strategies we use in school.

Lesson 5 - Geography – approx. 45 minutes:

As we have spent a lot of time learning about countries in an entirely new continent, today we are going to spend some time recapping on our continents, oceans, sea, equator and tropics. Read the information below:

Visit the BBC Bitesize page attached below and watch the video which will help you understand mapping the world on a greater scale:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvsfr82/articles/znm7vk7

Now, complete the online test to see how much you have remembered!

After this, have a look at the picture below and challenge yourself to label all of the continents, oceans, the equator and the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn (see my checklist below to make sure you get them all in).

Lesson 6 – Art – approx. 45 mins:

Grab a pencil and some paper and head outside to see what is happening around you… SPRING TIME! It is a beautiful time of year, where all of the flowers, trees and plants are starting to bloom. Head outside and have a go at sketching the beautiful Spring time foliage that you can see. Choose daffodils, a blossom tree or tulips and relax with your pencil and start to draw.

Don’t forget to take your time and not press down so hard, it is harder to rub out any mistakes.

I can’t wait to see your beautiful art work!

Have a look at the pictures I have taken of my work from my back garden, and see how I have used what is in the back of my garden to help me sketch nature.

If you do not have access to flowers, have a look at the picture below and use that!

Enjoy your day!

Lesson 2 – English - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

Today you will re-read your letters that you drafted yesterday. I recommend that you read them slowly and aloud so that you can hear if your writing makes sense. It's a good idea to read them with another person so that they can help you spot any errors.

Use a different coloured pen to correct spellings or change ideas and also add missing punctuation. Have another look at my modelled write from yesterday where I started to do this.

Once you have done this, it's time to write your letter for your final neat copy.  Take your time with this and think carefully about your letter formation.

When you are happy with your letter, fold it neatly and 'pop' it inside your birthday card.  Follow my model below to help you address your envelope. 

  • Can you find out what C/O  means?
  • Why do you think that your letters and cards are being sent to the Post office and not Captain Tom's home?

Good morning Year 4! We hope your lessons yesterday were successfully and interesting. It has been great hearing from you and seeing all of your excellent work.

I have seen a lot of excellent research on the Mesoamerican countries, such as Mexico and Guatemala. How interesting are these countries? They seem very far away, but they’re very warm, so I guess our weather might be a little similar at the moment.

Lesson 2 – English - approx 1 hour 15 minutes:

To write a letter

Today you will be drafting your letter to Captain Tom. Have a look at your wordle and also the photos of other wordles that were produced yesterday from reading the text and watching the news reports. These are on our year group web page.

Try your absolute best to include vocabulary that shows the strength of Captain Tom's character and also the feelings of the nation towards his accomplishment.

Before writing:

Have a good look at my modelled write.

'Zoom Out' and notice how it has been set out.

Now 'Zoom In'

Do you notice that there is a new paragraph for each of my new ideas?

My very first paragraph is just a simple greeting to open my letter.

My final paragraph gives thanks and recognition for Captain Tom's achievement and I have also finished by wishing him a happy birthday.

Look closely to see how many words I have taken from the text and also the start of my wordle. Maybe you would like to 'magpie' some of my words to include in your draft letter.

Remember to think each sentence and say each sentence before you write to make sure your writing makes sense.

Don't forget that you can use online thesauruses to also help 'up-level' you word choices and dictionaries to help with spellings.

Why don't you take some extra time over the next few days to make Captain Tom a birthday card for his big 100th birthday at the end of the month? Beautiful, well-drawn, high-quality pictures on a card would b wonderful for him to receive!

I have heard from a lot of you and have found that you think these countries are extremely interesting! I have to agree. I think it is fascinating learning about somewhere so different to where we live and what we are used to.

Your task is: Create a physical geography fact file based on two Mesoamerican countries.

Physical geography is the features that are natural and not man-made, such as: rivers, mountain ranges, climate, volcanoes and oceans.

Have a look at my own fact file I have created to help you create yours on the country of Guatemala. You will see it lists key facts about the location of the country, the country's climate, mountains, volcanoes and rivers. Plus, you can make your fact files as groovy and colourful as you like! I've even drawn the Guatemalan flag!

You have got today and tomorrow to complete this, so don’t rush it. Remember, quality over quantity :)

Monday 20th April 2020 – Day 11 of Home Learning

Good morning Year 4 and welcome back to school! I hope you have had an enjoyable, fun and exciting Easter Break with your families. I have eaten far too much chocolate, but that is what Easter is about, isn’t it?

We are really missing you, but cannot wait to start hearing from you again and hearing about your Easter holidays.

This half term we are learning all about the Mayans, an intriguing Ancient Civilisation that pre-dated the Romans. You will be learning all sorts about them and how they lived, where they lived and what they believed in.

As it is your first day back after Easter, we are easing you back in with not too much work to complete.

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

Well done, and keep working hard.

To write a letter

This week in our English activities, we will be celebrating the 100th birthday of Captain Tom and also recognise the tremendous achievement of raising over £20, 000, 000 for our NHS.

We hope that you will give your best effort to your tasks as some of you may wish to make Captain Tom a birthday card in which to enclose your letter.  

Task 1

You are to read the text and watch the news report to create a wordle that will help you collect descriptive vocabulary to describe Captain Tom's character and also how others have felt about his accomplishment.  I've started one to give you an idea. Feel free to add to mine as you read and after that watch the report.

Lesson 5 - Geography – approx. 45 mins:

This half term, we are learning all about the Maya Civilisation. This was an incredibly unique civilisation that existed thousands of years before you were born. But, before we begin to learn about who the Mayans were, we are going to find out about where they came from.

The Mayans prospered and reigned in Mesoamerica. This area is in the continent of North America, and is often referred to as Central America. Some of the countries in this region you will have already heard of, such as Mexico, but some others you may not have heard of – Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

I would like you to complete some research on this region of North America by choosing two countries in Mesoamerica and finding out all about their physical geography. We haven't done much study on the North America continent, so you might want to spend some time on google maps / a map / a globe finding this region!

Physical geography is the features that are natural and not man-made, such as: rivers, mountain ranges, climate, volcanoes and oceans.

Can you create a fact file for each country that you have chosen and their physical geography?

You have got a few days to do this, so don’t rush. Use today as your initial research phase!

Ready, set, GO you lovely little geographers.

 

Lesson 6 – Spellings – approx. 30 mins:

Practise your new topic based spellings in the blue section of your spellings logs using your different methods, such as: rainbow writing, pyramid writing, look, cover & check, and word association.

Mayan                                                  Mesoamerica                                    North America

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!

Watch the videos below to recap what you know if you need:

Lesson 4 - approx 30 minutes:

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 - 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: 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLx4fVsYdTI

Try to get some beautiful drawings on there of ‘under the sea’. I have also attached a very powerful gallery of images of plastic pollution and posters that have been created by professionals. I am sure you can make something just as powerful.

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

Good morning Year 4, we hope that you are enjoying VOLCANO WEEK. I know we certainly are! Below you will find all of your learning for today.

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

Well done, and keep working hard!

 

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 1 – Fractions on a numberline https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/

Activity 2: Week 2 Lesson 1 – Divide 2 digits by 10 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 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.

 

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

Good morning Year 4, we hope that you have had a fun and relaxing weekend spent with your families. You have done incredibly well with your first week of home learning, so I can’t wait to see what you get up to this week. Even though it is very strange not being able to come to school, you will now have started to adapt to this ‘new normal’ that we are all learning to live in. Remember that everyone in your home is also adapting to this new way of living, so we must always remember to be kind and considerate. We really miss you today, but seeing the work that you produce and pictures of your lovely smiling faces really improves our day!

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.

Thursday 26th March 2020 - Day 4 of Home Learning

Good morning Year 4, we hope that your home learning is going well and that you are safe, happy and healthy. It has been lovely hearing from all of you.

See below for what we would like you to do today J

Note: Miss Capewell is in work today, so will not be able to respond to emails straight away. Mrs Walker is at home, so will be available on email all day.

 

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 extended calculation blast and complete the questions in your Maths books. Your four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) are really important skills to take forward into Year 5 and your future life. So, take your time on working through these questions.

I will upload the answers at 4pm 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!

  • What the Romans used it for
  • How long it is
  • Key places the wall passes through
  • How high it used to be
  • Key features of the wall (turrets, forts and milecastles)

Today and tomorrow you will have time to write this up, and maybe even write it up in neat, or draw artwork of the wall.

We can’t wait to read and to see what you create!

 

ERIC time - silent reading for 30 minutes:

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

Remember to write in your reading records!

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. 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=xLx4fVsYdTI

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IW3jEIYBFzg

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.

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. This is 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. There is a video to watch first which will help you understand what you need to be doing.

Decimals video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9vqm2eM5mk

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

 

Have a look at the options for the Maths. This works like Better and Best in lessons, you can complete both! If you would like to do that, start at Option 1 and move onto Option 2.

 

I will upload the answers at 3pm 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 Maths:

Option 2 Maths:

 

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!

 

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 30 minutes:

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 20 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 ‘-cian’ and ‘-sion’ spellings today.

 

Lesson 6 – approx. 30 mins:

Using your knowledge of Roman mosaics and how / why these were created, research different mosaic styles so you can start to think about designs for your own mosaic. Over the next week we will try to create our own mosaics, whether that is with colouring pencils or cutting up pieces of magazine or newspaper to create different designs.

 

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

Monday 23rd March 2020 - Day 1 Answers

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!

From,

Miss Capewell and Mrs Walker x

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!
