Home Learning 13th July-17th July 2020. The last week of Year 4!!

Oh my goodness Year 4, it’s the last week of term! Can you even believe it? You’re all very nearly in the Upper Juniors, how exciting!

We’re really proud of how hard you have worked at home and at school if you’ve been in so this week is a treat week to make up for all the usual fun things that we’d normally be doing at this time of year but we sadly can’t at the moment.

There are different activities for each day but you don’t have to do them on specific days, you can mix them up. For example, if you have a little brother in a different class, you might want to do your art on the same day as them so that you can paint or draw together 🙂

Don’t forget our Zoom meeting which is at 9:30am on Wednesday! I really hope you can all make it 🙂

You’ve been fabulous Year 4!

Monday 13th July 2020:

Arts/Crafts/Creative day

You can draw or make whatever you like today so if you’ve had a craft kit hanging around since Christmas or a Lego model you’ve been wanting to build, today is the day!

Here are some ideas for things you can do instead though. I’ve gone for a cartoon theme.

Last week, I posted a couple of YouTube drawing tutorials. The pictures you drew whilst following them were amazing so here is the link to the channel they came from. https://www.youtube.com/c/ArtforKidsHub They have loads of tutorials you can follow 🙂

Here are some printable sheets instead if you prefer: T C 7488 How To Draw Mixed Activity Sheets

You could create your own comic, here’s some blank templates to use (or draw your own)

Transition Day

It’s time to start looking forward to Year 5! Here are some activities for you to do so you can reflect on your time in Year 4 and and think about what you are hoping to achieve in Year 5.

End Of Year Memories

Year 4 To Year 5 Transition Booklet

Here’s a maths booklet you could do today

Year 4 to year 5 Maths booklet

 Year 4 to 5 Maths Transition Booklet Answers

Some other ideas of things you could do today:

Write a letter to Miss Rooney telling her about yourself – you could use some of the ideas from the transition booklet but also tell her about your interests and anything else you think she should/would like to know.  If you send it to me on Tapestry, I can make sure she gets it.

Design a poster for children in Year 3 to tell them about the topics they will be learning about in Year 4. If you are a really big fan of one subject (like Science or History) You could just do your poster about the topics in that subject.

 

Wednesday 15th July 2020

Zoom Day! (9:30am) and Sports and Fitness Day

Children of Key workers  in year 4 that are in school today can come to school in a sports kit. if you’re at home, why not wear your sporty clothes too? 🙂

Don’t forget our Zoom meeting is this morning at 09:30. The details have been sent to your parents on Tapestry.

There are lots of ways to stay fit and healthy. You can do any exercise you like but here are some ideas for you 🙂

These are some ideas for hosting a Sports day at your house:

Here’s a sheet so you can design your own football strip

You could also make yourself a healthy sandwich for lunch 🙂 (remember to ask your parents before you start doing things in the kitchen!)

You could also make your own board game. It could be based on your favourite sport if you like or you could choose a different theme if you prefer. Here’s some templates or you could design your own from scratch 🙂

Design Your Own Board Game Template

Game Cards

T T 25218 Blank Board Game And Instructions Template

You could write a sports (or something else) quiz and try it out on your family or friends on a video call later. Remember, even if you think you know the answer to the question, always check it and ask permission from an adult before you use the internet to search for things.

You could make up your own sport. Try to write some instructions so other people can play it too. Remember to think about what equipment you would need and what the playing area would be like.

You could design a healthy menu for a post-exercise meal

 

Thursday 16th July 2020

Nature Day

There are lots of things you can do outdoors!

Here’s a few ideas:

Go for a walk with your family –

Hunt for invertebrates in your garden (you can see if they’re different to what we found at school in the autumn)

Build a den in your garden if the weather is nice and then read a book inside it.

Use natural materials to make a piece of art

(remember, if the weather is truly terrible, you can swap days around if the weather forecast is better for tomorrow)

Make a bird feeder – There are loads of tutorials online for these, you may need help from an adult and don’t leave the stuff in your feeder to rot because you may attract wasps at this time of year. Here’s one set of instructions I found:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/makes/bird-feeder

Then sit by your window and see what birds come to your garden.

(If you have a cat that goes outdoors, a bird feeder might not be a good idea for you because cats like to hunt birds)

Here are two checklists – one is some birds you might see in the UK, the other is a more general scavenger hunt

Main Birds

Here are some ideas for art you could make with natural materials:

Friday 17th July 2020

Film Day

Pick your favourite film to watch today 🙂

In the morning, prepare yourself some snacks to eat while you watch and then settle down to watch your film 🙂

The children in school are having their lunch as a picnic outside today so if the weather is nice, you could have yours outdoors too.

It’s the last day of term so normally we’d be having a play afternoon 🙂

Why not play your favourite board game (if someone is available to play it with)? Or spend the afternoon playing with your favourite toys or playing outside.

 

I hope you had a great week Year 4 🙂

You’ve been a fabulous class and we’ve really missed you! Thank you for all your hard work (and your parents’ hard work too!) and for sharing all your lovely work on Tapestry, it’s been lovely to look at it and to keep in touch with you all.

Have a lovely holiday, stay safe and make sure you come back in September well rested and ready to impress Miss Rooney!

On Thursday and Friday of this week, you are going to be planning a film trailer so make sure you have a film in mind that you’d like to choose (appropriate for your age please – You can use a PG or 12A film if your parent gives you permission because you are learning from home but no higher ratings than that please!) If you can, it’s probably a good idea to watch your chosen film before Thursday 🙂

For the next two weeks, we’re just going to work on practising drawing some fun things in art.

You will need a piece of A4 paper for each drawing, a pencil and a colouring in medium of your choice.

Here are a couple of ‘How to Draw’ videos that I found.

Last week you watched  some film trailers to see how film studios persuade people to watch a film. Here they are again so you can remind yourself:

Toy Story 3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcpWXaA2qeg

The Lion King (1994) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hY7xBISLBIA

Madagascar https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fq5zU9T_Hl4

This week, you’re going to plan a film trailer using a storyboard to show the different clips of the film that you want to show in your trailer. We’re going to spend today and tomorrow doing it so you can produce a high-quality storyboard.

The first thing you need to do is decide on the film you’re going to plan a trailer for. Please make sure it is a film which is appropriate for your age and that you have seen recently (If your parent says it’s OK, you can choose a PG or a 12A film but you must ask their permission first)

Here is my example of a storyboard for a trailer for Toy Story 3

Storyboard Example Toy Story 3

Things To Think About Including When Making A Trailer

Now have a go at planning your own trailer. Here is a blank storyboard to use. If eight spaces is not enough, print another sheet. If you don’t have a printer then you’ll have to draw your own storyboard template based on mine 🙂

Storyboard Template

Mine was done by taking screen shots which you can do if you are able to but you can also draw it instead.

So that you can do a good job of your final storyboard, it’s a good idea to do a rough draft with stick men and no colour first.

Science:

English:

Continue to work on your film trailer storyboard from yesterday

 

I know a few of you finished the film trailer storyboard yesterday. If that’s you then you have a couple of options.

Option 1 – You can make your trailer:

You could make stick puppets and film them acting out the different parts of your trailer,

if you have enough people around, you could film them acting out your trailer

In class we would use screen shots of Toy Story 3 to make a trailer using iMovie on the iPads so you can do that if it’s available to you.

If you have an idea that you prefer, then by all means do that 🙂

Remember – Your parents are busy people so if you’re not able to make your trailer without a lot of  help, you should have a go at option 2 instead.

Option 2 – If you’re not able to make your trailer, you can design a film poster to go with the film you have made your trailer storyboard for. Here are the posters from last week so you can have a look to remind yourself

Listen to the four sections and while you listen, try to imagine what each piece makes you think of

If you have any instruments available, compose a short piece to accompany one of the seasons. If you don’t, then compose your piece using body percussion instead, as shown in this example which we used when we did a different piece of music earlier in the year. You only need to compose one or 2 pieces not 5 like there are in the example. Unless you want to 🙂

This PowerPoint revises a grammar concept that you have covered in a previous year group. It is about simple past and present tense

Simple present tense is just something like ‘I play football’ Simple past tense would be ‘I played football’

Art: 

In RE this half term, we are learning about Hinduism. So this week, your art lesson is about Hindu temples. Have a close look at the photos of Hindu temples in India. Choose one of the temples and, very carefully try to  draw it. You can use a little colour on your picture if you would like or you can try to shade it by using pencil to shade in where there are shadows. Make sure you look back at the picture to make sure you’re drawing, colouring and shading as accurately as possible.

I’m afraid there was no way for me to get the sound files on the website so that you can hear the phrases being spoken but if you type ‘how to pronounce [insert word or phrase here]’ into Google it will bring up a short video usually. I would recommend copying and pasting the words rather than trying to type them out.

Using what you learnt yesterday about advertising posters and how they try to persuade you to buy products, create your own poster to advertise a favourite thing of yours.For example, it could be your favourite toy, favourite restaurant, favourite book or favourite shop. Don’t make a poster advertising a film though – we’ll be looking more closely at those next week.

You can do your poster on the computer if you like or on paper. You could use photos of the product or a combination of photos and your own drawing (like the Mario Happy meal poster from yesterday’s PowerPoint).

Don’t rush, there will be time this afternoon to finish it off 🙂

RE:

Our RE topic is about things that help Hindus to be good.

This week, we’re going to learn about karma. Karma is all about how the things you do in life affect your karma (you’ve probably heard lots of non-Hindu people talk about karma) Hindus believe that if you have good karma, then at the end of your life, you will achieve Moksha which means your soul will join Brahman (it’s like how Christians believe that if you have a good life then you get to go to heaven).  If you have bad karma then Hindus believe you won’t achieve Moksha and your soul will still be stuck on Earth (until you live a life with good karma).

 

What sort of things do you think Hindus might do to achieve good karma? Write the word karma in the middle of your page and around it, write  down and draw as many things as you can that you think Hindus might do that would get them good karma and help them achieve Moksha.

 

Once you’ve done, carry on with your poster from this morning.

Before or after lunch, read a book for half an hour

History:

Last week, we learnt about early Anglo Saxon religion. When they first arrived in Britain, the Anglo Saxons were pagan (which means basically they didn’t follow one of the major religions like Christianity). Their religion was linked very closely with nature. As time went on though, more and more Saxons began to convert to Christianity until eventually, Christianity was really the only religion in England.

Here is a PowerPoint with some information about the Saxon Conversion to Christianity:

Question Marks Revision

Before or after lunch, read a book for half an hour

History:

Yesterday, you learnt about how the Saxons converted to Christianity from paganism. Today we’re going to have a look at a place that was a really important part of that change, Iona in Scotland. Iona is a tiny island but it is known for being the ‘birthplace of Christianity’ in Scotland.

Your task this afternoon is to research a little about the history of Iona and the abbey that was built there during the Saxon times.

Here is a website and a video to get you started:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VF4CpbFZPHc a tour of Iona Abbey

http://www.welcometoiona.com/places-of-interest/iona-abbey/

There’s this website too but you may need an adult to explain some of the language if you don’t understand

https://www.historicenvironment.scot/visit-a-place/places/iona-abbey-and-nunnery/history/

And here is a PowerPoint about Saint Columba

Saint Columba

You will want to find out who founded the abbey and perhaps a little about that person and when they built it.  A little about the island itself and about what the abbey was like then and what it is like now. If you find out any other interesting facts, write those down too. Tomorrow you will be presenting your research.

Cafe Coordinates Worksheet 17th June

If you found that you didn’t need to spend long on that, here’s a bit extra for you 🙂

Extension 17th June

When you are reading and writing coordinates, it is important to remember that you need to read the x axis first before the y axis. One way to remember this is to think ‘Along the corridor, then up the stairs’. Another way (and the one I prefer) is ‘Walk before you fly’. I prefer it because the next part of the mnemonic is ‘swim before you dive’ which will be helpful when you do coordinates in the upper juniors.

English:

Here is a powerpoint about spelling adjectives with the suffix ous.

Adding Ous

Once you’ve had a good look at the powerpoint, have a go at this sheet:

Today you’re going to be writing up your research from yesterday. Find your notes first and have a look through. If you’d like to remind yourself about Iona, re-read the PowerPoints, websites and videos from yesterday. You’re going to write the research up as a report in your book in paragraphs with some pictures (which you can draw or stick in). Make sure you write the research in your own words.

Here is an example about a different Monastery, Lindisfarne Priory, which was also an important place for Christianity during the Saxon times.

Have you ever seen a lighthouse? In the past when ships didn’t have radios or special navigation equipment, they were really important for guiding ships away from rocks that could cause them to sink.

There are still lighthouses around today but now they are automatic.

RE:

What can we learn from the Catholic Sacrament of Confession?

Confession is a ritual that many Catholics take part in a few times a year. It is where they go to Church and tell the priest in private all the things they would like to ask God for forgiveness for. Catholics believe that being able to say sorry is a really important part of being forgiven for doing something wrong.

Catholic children take part in confession before they can take part in another important ritual called Holy Communion.

At confession, the priest will give the person a penance to do which is basically a way to make up for the wrong they have done.

Even if you are not religious, you know that if you feel really bad about doing something, you should say sorry to the person that you upset and then they are more likely to forgive you. For example, perhaps you were playing a game with a friend and you wouldn’t let one of your other friends join in so they were upset. Or maybe you took the last chip from your little brother’s plate without asking him first.

You also might want to put it right by doing something to show that you have learned from your mistake. So to put the examples right, you would probably ask your other friend to join in with your game next time and in future, you would ask your little brother whether he has finished eating before you eat his chips.

Have a look at the situations on this sheet. How would you put them right?

RE And PSHE Putting It Right

After you’ve had a go at that, if it didn’t take you long, think of a time when you did something that you really feel sorry about. how did you put it right? Write it down in your book and illustrate it if you like.

Topic:

Research:

As you know, early Anglo-Saxon England was split into 7 kingdoms. Each of these kingdoms was ruled by different kings. Some of these kings were more powerful than others though. The most powerful kings would have had very special funerals when they died in order to show how important they were. If they were a king who spent a lot of time at sea, they may have been buried on one of their ships. This would have taken a lot of work to achieve as there were no mechanical diggers in Saxon times so people would have had to dig the enormous hole necessary to bury an entire ship by hand. There were also no lorries so the ship would have to be brought as close to the burial site as possible by river and then carried overland to the burial site. Then, that person’s most treasured possessions would have been placed alongside them and buried with the person. This is similar to how the Egyptian Pharoahs were buried as you may remember from Year 3.

 

The most famous Saxon ship burial ever discovered was at Sutton Hoo in East Anglia.

Watch this video to find out about it:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0113xxh

 

Your task: Spend this afternoon researching Sutton Hoo and collecting information about it.

Try to find out: Who discovered it and when

What was found there

What type of person was buried there

And any other information you think is interesting.

Tomorrow, you’re going to put your information either on to a poster or into a leaflet. Do spend both afternoons working on this though rather than trying to rush it 🙂

 

Here’s some more information:

There is a little more information on the National Trust website too. (Where it says ‘More about this place’ click ‘History’)

https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/sutton-hoo

Most of what was actually found is now in the British Museum. Here’s their website

https://www.britishmuseum.org/collection/galleries/sutton-hoo-and-europe#introduction-to-sutton-hoo

The video about the sword is perfectly fine for you to watch if you’re interested, it shows how you can find out about a person just from an artefact.

Here is a collection of photos of some of the artefacts from Sutton Hoo that are now in the British Museum. Remember these things are more than 1500 years old!

English:

Limericks:

Limerick – read the examples of limericks provided. These are a bit trickier to write than the other types of poems that we’ve already looked at.They have a very specific rhythm which makes them sound a bit like a song and they have to rhyme!

Watch this video on Limericks and how they’re constructed.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfmTrw3X8-w&t=257s

This video has a couple more examples so you can hear how limericks are supposed to sound.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVHQLcEJ7Ig

Practise reading these limericks out loud following the rhythm pattern as demonstrated by the ladies in the videos.

Limerick Examples

 

Try to learn one or more of the limericks off by heart and perform it to someone at home or film it so they can watch it later.

Decide on a theme for your own limerick which you will write tomorrow. See if you can decide on what the ends of some of your lines might be.

For example, if you’re writing about your dog you might start with ‘There was a young puppy from Shaw’ Or ‘There was a cute doggy from Rochdale’ So start to list some words that rhyme with those like claw, flaw, draw, paw or pail, sail, pale, whale, mail etc. You don’t have to write them in your book, just somewhere safe so you can refer back to them tomorrow

 

Topic:

Yesterday you researched the ship burial at Sutton Hoo. Today you’re going to present your research as a leaflet or a poster. (Or you can write it up as a report in your book if you prefer – just include some pictures) You can do it on the computer if you want to.

Make sure you present your research in your own words, it is clearly presented and you include some pictures. You can print the pictures out or you can draw them.

I look forward to seeing your creations.

Once you’ve finished, have a go at making your own triangles on this geoboard https://apps.mathlearningcenter.org/geoboard/ The larger board is best for this.

Can you make 2 each of equilateral, scalene, isoceles and right-angled triangles?

English:

Continuing with Limericks

Rewatch one or both of the videos from yesterday to remind yourself what limericks are supposed to sound like and then find your ideas sheet from yesterday too. Read some of the limerick examples from yesterday too.

Have a look at this PowerPoint which has the limericks rules written down for you to refer back to whilst you are writing.

Limericks Powerpoint

At the end of the presentation is a template which you can use to help you write your own limerick. You will probably need to do a lot of trial and error before you get it right and that’s absolutely fine. Don’t forget to read your poem out loud so you can hear whether you have the correct rhythm.

 

***UPDATE***

A few people sent me completed limericks yesterday so if you have already written some, here’s a different type of poem to have a go at:

List Poems

If you want to spend part of the lesson on limericks and then spend the rest on list poems then you can.

Alternatively, if you’ve already written a limerick but you haven’t quite finished your research project on Sutton Hoo, you can do that instead 🙂

RE:

Every year at a certain time, more than 1 million Muslim people travel to the city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia for a special journey called the Hajj. Every Muslim is supposed to make this journey at least once during their life. Whilst they are there, the people perform certain rituals and one of these is ‘stoning the devil’

According to the Quran, a prophet called Abraham was tempted by the devil and Abraham, instead of giving in, threw stones at the devil, eventually driving him away. Nowadays, Muslims throw stones at 3 huge pillars o represent the 3 times that the devil tried to tempt Abraham and his family. Here is a picture:

If you could, what things would you like to get rid of in our area? You could think about Shaw, Oldham or the UK as a whole. Draw a picture of the things you would like to get rid of and then explain why underneath.

If we had been in school over the last few weeks, I’m pretty certain that you would have earned enough class awards to have a play afternoon since you’ve all been working so hard 🙂 Now, obviously you are mostly at home so it’s not quite the same as a play afternoon at school would be.

So… here are some colouring sheets if you’d like to do those. Or you could make something out of modelling clay, Hama beads, salt dough or Lego if you’d prefer. Or you could paint or draw a picture of your choice. Or another craft activity of your choice. Have fun and I’d love to see your creations 🙂

Here is a collection of sheets with your year 3 and 4 statutory spellings. However, the spelling words have been written incorrectly so you need to correct them. There are 12 sheets here so you obviously don’t need to do them all. Choose one and if it doesn’t take you very long, do another. If you still have time left, then write 6 sentences using the spelling words from the sheets you chose.

Art:

Our art topic this half term is printing. Today you are going to design a stamp based on whatever materials you will be able to get hold of the most easily at home next week.

Have a look at these images. They are Anglo-Saxon Art. You’re going to design a stamp based on one of these pictures (or design one of your own with an Anglo-Saxon style) You will need to keep your design pretty simple because making stamps is fiddly.

Imagine that Jack made the ‘wrong’ choice where everybody ends up miserable. Imagine that after school, he went home and had a conversation with his mum or dad about the choice he made. What do you think they would say? How would they react? (act it out with puppets or with your brother/sister/parent if you like)

Write the conversation between Jack and his parent using accurate speech punctuation and think about adding extra detail in between the dialogue (like somebody wipes their eyes or goes to open the fridge) this helps to break up the speech. Try to use different verbs for said too.

RE:

Our new RE topic is What can we learn from religions about temptation and right and wrong. Temptation is when you really want to do something even though you know you shouldn’t. For example, if you saw a chocolate bar at home, you might want to eat it but you know you ask whoever it belongs to first.

Watch this video of children taking part in the ‘marshmallow test.’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QX_oy9614HQ

They are being tempted by that sweet, delicious marshmallow but if they wait, then they will get an even better reward. Two marshmallows!

How do you think the children are feeling during this video? Can you see any of them really struggling to resit the marshmallow? Which children gave up the fastest? Why do you think that is?

What thing would you find really difficult to resist, even if there was a bigger reward promised to you if you manage not to eat it or use it?

Draw a picture of the thing that would tempt you the most. It could be food or it might be a game or toy you really enjoy. Underneath the picture, write down why it would tempt you and whether you think you would be able to resist it.

Science

 

Last Monday you did a mini experiment where you tried to figure out how sounds are made. Do you remember what you found out?

You may have noticed that when a sound is being made, the thing that is making the sound shakes very fast. This is called vibration. Put your hand on your throat and say ‘Aaah!’ You will notice that your throat feels like it’s buzzing.

Sounds are made by vibrations. Today, we’re going to learn a bit more about how they get from the object to your ear. You will have picked up some of this information from the English work you did this morning.

Have a look at this PowerPoint:

Hearing Sounds Lesson Presentation

Now, using the information, imagine you have been asked to present a short radio segment called The Science of Sound about how sounds are made and how they get to your ear (We will be learning more about the ear next week).

The Science Of Sound Planning Sheet

Use this sheet to help you quickly plan your show, then perform it either to an audience (of your parents or siblings), by yourself or by recording it on your device to listen back to later. (Please do NOT post it online!) Don’t forget to use the scientific vocabulary provided.

Spellings:

Take a look at your new spellings above. Practice them for 15 minutes by looking at a word, covering it up, writing it out and then checking it. If there are any words you don’t understand, look them up in a dictionary.

 

Maths

Complete these questions using the column subtraction method.

Subtraction Questions 1st April2

If you need a bit of a reminder about column subtraction, here’s a help sheet. There is information for all the different scenarios you might come across when doing column subtraction.

English

Complete this worksheet, remembering the special rule about adding suffixes (Change the y to an i and add…)

A short vowel sound is like the o in frog. A long vowel sound would be like the a in whale 🙂

Adding ‘er’ And ‘est’ Sheet With Spelling Rules

Once you’re done, write 6 spelling sentences. Remember to use conjunctions and to check that your sentences make sense.

 

 

After lunch, Read a book for half an hour and record it in your reading journal.

 

Design Technology

Last week, we had a go at designing a meal using items from the store cupboard. Have a look at these websites to remind yourself

https://realfood.tesco.com/curatedlist/nine-store-cupboard-ingredients-and-how-to-use-them.html

https://www.asdagoodliving.co.uk/food/amazing-meals-made-from-store-cupboard-staples

 

This afternoon, your task is to design a meal to make yourself. Ask your parents whether there are any ingredients you could use to make a meal. Design your meal using this sheet:

My Store Cupboard Meal Designs

Ask your parent whether you would be able to make this meal for your tea or lunch (with their help of course!) on a day that is convenient for them. If they suggest that you change something about your meal design, you should listen because they have much more cooking experience than you do. If they say no, then that’s fine too because your parents are very busy!

Coaster Land Theme Park Addition And Subtraction Questions2

Coaster Land Theme Park Addition And Subtraction Answers

English

We’ve finished our unit about Ride of Passage so this week you can write a story of your own choice. As you know, it’s always a good idea to plan a story before you write it otherwise it can get very confusing! So today you’re going to plan your story.

You need to think of

A setting

The characters

What the problem in the middle of the story is going to be

How the characters are going to solve the problem

I think some really good ideas for a story setting would be: a castle, a museum, a theme park or a period in history that you have learned about (Egyptians, Romans, Victorians, the Stone Age) but those are just my suggestions.

Here’s a sheet to help you set out your plan

Story Planning Frame

 

Before or after lunch, read a book for about half an hour

Spellings: 
Choose a fun way to learn your spellings

Here’s a template and instructions for a spelling fortune teller. (If you can’t print, ask an adult or older sibling whether they will help you to make a square out of an A4 piece of paper and then follow the instructions, adding the text yourself)

Spelling Fortune Teller

This website has some really fun ideas too if you’d prefer

https://www.doodleenglish.com/2019/09/20/fun-ways-to-practise-spelling-words/

 

English:

I’ve swapped English and Maths around today and your Maths activity will be quite short. This is so that you can spend more time writing your story.

Have a look back through your story plan that you wrote yesterday.  Before you start writing, have a go at writing some exciting sentences to use in your story as a warm up.

Write one sentence to describe the setting, one sentence to describe your main character and one sentence to show how your character feels at the most exciting part of the story. For Example; Sweat poured down his face as he tip-toed along the corridor, trying not to make the floorboards creak.  See if you can write all of the sentences in five minutes or less!

Now write your story. I would recommend starting with a fronted adverbial such as ‘After a long day at work, Joe trudged home through the rain-soaked streets of the town.’  Or ‘With the blazing hot July sunshine beating down on his face, Joe stood in his usual place as an operator of the Super Mega Awesome Coaster at CoasterLand.’

Here’s a checklist to help you remember some of the key things you need to remember:

Success Criteria Checklist General

Have fun writing your stories!

Maths:

Complete one of these challenges. Choose the Ultimate Division Challenge if you are already very confident with Times Tables.

T2 M 1557 KS2 Ultimate Times Table Challenge

T2 M 1635 KS2 Ultimate Division Challenge

Time yourself to see how quickly you can do it but stop if you go past 10 minutes

Play this game about multiples for 20 minutes

Go to this website https://www.twinkl.co.uk/go/sign-in and enter this code: WJ4679

Choose a times table that you would like to work on and try to pop bubbles that contain numbers that are in that times table.

 

Read a book quietly for half an hour either before or after lunch.

 

RE/PSHE: 

Our RE topic is all about the deeper meaning of religious festivals this half term. One important festival is the Buddhist celebration, Wesak. This celebrates the birthday of the Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. He started life as a very wealthy member of the royal family in Nepal. After a while, he realised that there is more to life than money, wealth and suffering and he began to believe that people did not need lots of things in order to be happy.

The Buddha created the 8-fold path which is the main principles that all Buddhists follow. One of the steps on the path is called ‘Right Action’ which is all about behaving in a kind, thoughtful way and looking after each other and the planet.

Have a think about something you could do at home this afternoon that would help someone you live with or someone else.

For example, perhaps you could help your mum or dad out by tidying your bedroom or offering to clean out/help care for your family pet.

Or maybe you could spend some time helping your younger sibling with their home learning activity.

Maybe you could draw a picture for a grandparent or auntie that you can’t visit right now and send them a photo of it.

Maybe you could create a nice poster with a cheerful message that you could stick in the window so other people can see it as they walk past when they’re doing their exercise or delivering things.

Or, if you can think of something else that would help others but doesn’t involve leaving your house then that would be fine too 🙂

Ui2 Sc 112 Seeing Sound With Rice Science Experiment English

If you don’t have a musical instrument, it might work if you put a speaker or a TV near the glass. If you don’t have rice/a cup and cling film you could use a cereal box and dried beans or a drum and try tapping it to see what happens. Write down your findings: how do you think the sound is made? Why do you think the rice moves even when you’re not touching it?
