Welcome to the University of Birmingham!

 

Hi, my name is Miss Wall, welcome to our class page. Please take a look below at all the fantastic learning that has been taking place in Year 4 (more information can be found in the Parents' Booklet).

 

Also, why not visit our social media pages to see what's going on across school.

Friday 17th July

So as the school year comes to the end, I would like to say a massive thank you to the children for making this year fabulous. As they joined Year 4 in September, I was excited to see what the year would bring, little did we know it would be anything like this. I can’t thank them enough for the laughs we have had, the learning they have completed in school as well as the lessons on Zoom and the times we have to look forward to together but none of this would have been possible without your support, the parents/carers. I can’t thank each and every one of you enough; the time, effort, tears and tantrums along the way have been tough I can imagine but it’s all been worth it. The Class Dojo photos and messages have certainly kept me going through the lockdown period that’s for sure and I’m sure it’ll be the other way round from September with me sending all the lovely pieces of class work that they have completed together.

 

We have got to the end of a strange year but we have lots to look forward to together. Moving into Year 5 with your support is something that I really look forward to. Seeing them all back together will be such a fabulous sight so please take care over the summer and have a wonderful time.

 

Thank you again for your support throughout this year – you’ve been wonderful.

 

Miss Wall.

 

Please remember I am in school today until 12 so I will respond to Class Dojo messages once the children have left.

 

Challenge

Today’s challenge is called Go and Enjoy. As you complete the last activity set today and send me those wonderful photos on Class Dojo it’s time to reflect on the successes we’ve all had this year. The biggest thing we all need to do over the holidays is go and enjoy the time you have together, make the most of every moment and be thankful for what we have. So do it –Go and Enjoy!

 

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your last daily puzzle of the school year. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Maths

Today, you will be working on Pages 46 and 47 in your NEW Maths book. Both of these pages focus on area, remember this is the measurement inside of the shape. When you see shaded shapes on a square grid you just need to count the shaded squares, remember if only half the square is shaded it will make it easier if you pair it up with another half to count it as one whole. Hint: Mark the squares as you count them so you don’t count the same ones.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 57 in your new Maths book. You will need your graph reading skills for this.

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Page 34. This page focuses on planning and writing an informal letter to a friend so in this style of writing you can use contractions and little bit of slang as you are writing to someone your age although this doesn’t excuse text speak. Read through the information and think about what might have happened if you had been camping with some members of Year 4 - Where did you go? Who did you share your tent with? What did you do? What did you like/dislike about the trip?

 

BBC Bitesize

Today, you will be focusing on creating a short film, you do not have to film it now but you can at least plan what you would like to create and the story that it would show.  

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zd2m8hv

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 26 in your new English book, this is about recapping on your sounds

 

Year 4 Review

Instead of creative writing or PSHE today, I would like you to reflect back on the year (all of it). Write down what your favourite part of Year 4 was, it can be from when we were in school from September to March or it could be something school related that has happened since you have been at home. Also, I’d like you to think about any words of advice you would give the children that are moving up to Year 4 in September – What do they need to know about? What do they need to do to be as successful as you have been in Year 4?

 

Don’t Forget…

Thursday 16th July

Good morning Year 4, today will be our last Zoom session of the school year, this will be a fun session so if you haven’t joined us yet you might want to join us for this one, it will be at 10am. As I said yesterday we will be doing a spot of baking and there will be other activities to take part in too. 

 

I have included the ingredients/equipment needed below:

  • Self-Raising Flour
  • Caster Sugar
  • Cocoa Powder
  • 1 egg
  • Milk
  • Vegetable/Sunflower Oil
  • Microwave

 

Don’t forget to send over your photos on Class Dojo for lots of dojo points.

 

Challenge

Today’s challenge is called Thank you signs, think about what you experienced in class this year and who you want to thank from your peers. Write them a note to tell them what you are thanking them for, take a photo and pop it on to Class Dojo, I will then pass them on to the relevant person. Things like this make people feel happy and it brightens their day, one small act of kindness goes a long way.

 

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Maths

Today, you will be working on Pages 44 and 45 in your NEW Maths book. Both of these pages focus on perimeter, remember this is the measurement around the outside of the shape. Just because it only shows you two measurements on the shapes doesn’t just mean that you need to add those two – remember all the sides have a measurement and if it a square and you only get told one side length remember you will need to add 4 lots of that length to make your square. Also, if something is regular all the sides will be the same length.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 56 in your new Maths book. You will need your graph reading skills for this.

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Pages 3 & 26. Page 3 focuses on determiners and articles – articles are the a, an or the in the sentences and a determiner is the word that goes before the noun in the sentence that shows whether it is general or specific.

 

On Page 26, you need to look at rewriting the text but using the correct paragraphs – remember a new paragraph should be used when it is a new idea, speaker or change in time, paragraphs can only be one sentence for effect if needed.

 

BBC Bitesize

Today, you will be focusing on creating a comic strip based on the first moon landing. You will learn about Neil Armstrong and his journey to the moon along with how to plan your comic strip and create it.  

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z3vfxbk

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 25 in your new English book, this is about recapping on your sounds.

 

Art

For today’s final art lesson of Year 4 you are going to take part in the Circle Challenge with Mrs Cara, you will need to find a variety of circular objects for this lesson but make sure they’re not too big that they won’t fit on your page. You might use a coin, small plant pot, glue stick, bottom of a glass or mug etc. Take your time to watch what Mrs Cara does and create your own wonderful piece of art just from the circles on your page. I can’t wait to see what you decide to turn your circles into.

Today, you will be working on Pages 50 and 51 in your NEW Maths book. Both of these pages focus on time. Page 50 is based around reading the clocks and converting between 12 and 24 hour clocks. Whereas, Page 51 centres around different time periods of minutes, seconds, days, months, weeks. Make sure you read carefully what the question is asking you to do.

#

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 55 in your new Maths book. You will need your graph reading skills for this.

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Pages 50 & 52. Page 50 focuses on confusing words – make sure the sentences make sense when you read them through for this page. On Page 52, there is a focus on spelling rules – see if you can spot the mistakes and correct them.

 

BBC Bitesize

Today, you will be focusing on creative writing. The activities take you through expanded noun phrases, onomatopoeia and alliteration. Take a look at the videos to remind yourselves of those skills and then complete the activities below.

Tuesday 14th July

Good morning all, just a reminder our Zoom lesson will be at 9:30am today instead of the usual 10am. This will be our last lesson based Zoom and we will do a fun Zoom on Thursday – parents I will be in touch about this one as I’d like to do something practical if possible.

 

Have a great day today and I’m looking forward to seeing your work on Class Dojo later.

 

Challenge

Today’s challenge is called Food-doku, the puzzles attached below are just like the Sudoku ones we have done in class before. There are three levels to try, choose one you feel most comfortable with but if you fancy a challenge go straight to level three.

 

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too

 

Maths

Today, you will be working on Pages 48 and 49 in your NEW Maths book. Both of these pages focus on money. You will need to remember when adding and converting that there are 100p in £1. You will also need your decimal place value knowledge when adding and subtracting from given amounts, line the numbers up in the correct places to help you find your answer.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 54 in your new Maths book. You will need your graph reading skills for this.

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Pages 48 & 49. Both of these pages focus on confusing words – this could be when you have the same word but has a different spelling and depending on the context of the sentence you need to select the correct spelling. These are called homophones.

 

You will also need to be aware of the difference between have and of – a lot of adults still confuse this in their writing.

 

When you use have it would be used for something like - should have, whereas some people would use should of. Think about the contractions we have looked at previously – should’ve is a contraction of should have, therefore you would use have instead of of.

 

Take a look at the video link below, this will make some of the homophone meanings easier to understand.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks2-english-homophones-with-johnny-inel/z6fjbdm

 

BBC Bitesize

Today, you will be focusing on writing a set of instructions. You need to follow the videos and activities on the page to create your own set of instructions for a marvellous medicine. Use the adverbs and conjunctions you have learnt about recently.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zyk4ydm

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 23 in your new English book, this is about recapping on your sounds

 

Science

Our last Science lesson of the year, you are still going to be focusing on States of Matter but you will be having a go at making your own ice-cream! Changing a liquid to a solid. Along with the instructions below I have also attached a video that you can follow.

 

You will need:

Ice

Salt

Milk

A tablespoon of sugar

Ziploc Bags

Tea towel

 

How to make ice-cream in a bag.

  • Pour a cup of milk into a ziploc bag. Add the sugar. Make sure the bag is properly sealed.
  • Half fill another ziploc bag with ice and add a good amount of salt.
  • Put the milk bag into the ice bag and give it a good shake.
  • Keep the milk in contact with the ice as much as possible.
  • Keep rolling the ice over the milk, the ice in the bag will get VERY cold, so put a towel around the bag to protect your hands.
  • Check the milk after 5 minutes, it should be a similar consistency to ice cream, if not keep going for a bit longer.

Monday 13th July

Good morning Year 4, it was lovely seeing those of you who came in to school on Friday – well done for your frog efforts! I hope you all had a lovely weekend and are ready for the last week of home schooling before the summer holidays. Don’t forget to send over all your wonderful photos on Class Dojo – I love seeing all the things you have been doing.

 

Challenge

Today’s challenge is based around something that a lot of you love – computer games! Now is your opportunity to design your very own character that would feature in a computer game of your choice. Think creatively and make it as wacky and wonderful as you let your imagination be.

 

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Maths

Today, you will be working on Pages 56 and 57 in your NEW Maths book. Both of these pages focus on shapes again, this time you will be looking at symmetry. Remember symmetry is when you can cut a shape/picture and both sides would be exactly the same, this could be done diagonally as well as horizontally and vertically. Look very carefully and think about if it would be exactly the same.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 51 in your new Maths book. You will need your shape knowledge for this one.

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Pages 57 & 58. On Page 57 you will be looking at word families, all the words link together with the same meaning. Think about what each word means and you will be able to identify the family it belongs to.

 

On Page 58, you need to take your time to practise the spellings and get your parents/carers/siblings to test you on each word set. Remember some of the games we played in class that helped you practise each week – noughts and crosses, hangman, rainbow writing etc.

 

BBC Bitesize

Today, you will be focusing on adverbials and fronted adverbials, this is something we have touched on before but it’s always good to keep that memory fresh. Take a look at the videos about adverbs and how they link to fronted adverbials then have a go at the activities below.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zvrbp4j

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 22 in your new English book, this is about recapping on your sounds.

 

History

This is our last History lesson of the year, today I would like you to take a look at the Hands on History video below. This shows you what it was like for a boy in the roman period. Think about the information you are shown and what it would be like for you if you were a roman child during that period.

Good morning Year 4, for those of you coming into school this morning for the Keeping in Touch session please hold fire on completing the maths, English and challenge activities as we will be doing these together in school. For those of you at home, please complete the activities below and don’t forget to send photos over on Class Dojo – I will reply this afternoon once I have finished in school.

 

Have a good day everyone!

 

Challenge

Today’s challenge is called Leap Frog. For those of you that are coming to school we will be doing this as part of our session. Watch the video below, grab a piece of paper and cut it so that it is a square measuring 15 x 15cm. Fold your paper as below to make a frog, make a couple so you can have races with family members.

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Maths

Today, you will be working on Pages 54 and 55 in your NEW Maths book. Both of these pages focus on angles. You will need to recall the names of angles which we have covered already and think about the how many degrees could be in each of these angles. I’ve put a little picture below to refresh your memories.

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 50 in your new Maths book. You will need your shape knowledge for this one.

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Pages 6 & 7. On Page 6 you need to focus on the progressive version of tenses. For the present progressive sentences this is telling you something that is happening at this very moment in time, past progressive sentences are telling you about an activity that is ongoing in the past, eg: I was riding my bike to the park.

 

On Page 7, you need to focus on past and present perfect form. Past perfect form is talking about something that happened before something else, you will see the word had in a lot of these types of sentence. Whereas, present perfect is where you will see has or have used to show that something that started to happen in the past.

 

BBC Bitesize

Today, you will be focusing on your comprehension skills. Read and listen to extracts from Sir Chris Hoy’s book ‘An Inspiring Guide to Being Your Own Champion’. Take your time to read the extracts and find the key information needed to answer the questions. The speech part is very similar to your PSHE lesson so you can use the same speech for both – I suggest you watch both lessons so you get a feel for what you need to include.

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 21 in your new English book, this is about recapping on your sounds

 

PSHE

Today’s lesson is going to focus on the question: Do you want to be a hero? Put yourselves in the shoes of the Deputy Prime Minister and work on your persuasive skills to convince children to use school to develop their skills so that they can work for the NHS when they are older. Join Mr Jamil on the video to learn about the key workers that have been working tirelessly over the lockdown period, discuss what skills children will need to work for the NHS and create a persuasive speech to inspire people.

Wednesday 8th July

Good morning Year 4, it was great to see some of you on Zoom yesterday and lovely to have such great photos sent over on Class Dojo – keep up the god work. Don’t forget to send photos of any work you complete over to me on Class Dojo to keep earning all those dojo points.

 

Challenge

Today’s challenge is called Spin the Rainbow. I have attached a spinner template for you to either print or draw and colour in – you must colour both sides of this for it to work. Follow the instructions below to help you put your spinner together and let me know what you see once you have spun it around.

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Maths

Today, you will be working on Pages 32 and 33 in your NEW Maths book. Both of these pages focus on finding fractions of amounts. Remember to do this you need to divide by the bottom (denominator) and times in by the top (numerator).

 

Eg: 2/5 of 25 so 25÷5 = 5 then x 2 = 10.       So, 2/5 of 25 = 10.

 

When you are asked to shade in a shape using a fraction, look at how many it wants you to select(the bottom number) and then how many out of those it wants shaded in (the top number)

Where you have your empty boxes on Q8, think about taking the amount and dividing it by your denominator still, once you have that number think about how many times you would multiply it to make the answer that you have on the page.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 20 in your new Maths book. You will need your adding skills for this page.

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Pages 14 and 17. Page 14 focuses on apostrophes with the use of it’s or its. When you see it’s with an apostrophe is has been contracted from either it is or it has, when it is used without an apostrophe it shows that something belongs to someone.

 

Eg: It’s rather cold outside today (It is rather cold outside today)

The dog chased its tail. (The tail belongs to the dog)

 

Page 17 has a focus on speech marks – this is something that you have already looked at during your home learning but it always helps to revisit it and keep it fresh in your mind. Remember that you need to place the speech marks (inverted commas) around the parts that the person is saying, any punctuation that is need for the speech, for example a question mark, would be put inside the speech marks. Direct speech is when the exact words that come from a person’s mouth are written down as they said it. Whereas reported speech is when you are told what someone has said.

 

BBC Bitesize

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be focusing on headlines in a newspaper report along with the use of alliteration. Make your headlines as bold and eye-catching as possible to draw the reader in and want to read your report.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zcytjsg

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 19 in your new English book, this is about recapping on your sounds

 

Geography

This week’s topic is a very important one at the moment, it focuses on water pollution. This is a key area of focus at the moment as the environment is being polluted not only in the water with the plastics and micro plastics but the air is not getting cleaner and people are looking at different ways we can improve the environment and air quality.

 

Take a look at the presentation below and read all the information. Pick 2 of the activities to complete, there are 2 poster designs you could create and there’s an information finding activity. For the last activity you will need some articles from Newsround, I have attached a couple of links that you might find useful.

Tuesday 7th July

Morning all, well done for yesterday – there were some fab flags from the challenge and you are all producing some fabulous maths and English work. We will be on Zoom at 10am today, if you have not had the details through please contact me on Class Dojo or School’s Facebook page and I will get them to you. This lesson will be our maths lesson.

 

Challenge

Today’s challenge is called What Floats your Boat? The aim of the challenge is to create a boat from recycled materials that floats on the water when tested. Take your time to think about what materials will work best and construct a small boat that can be floated either in a sink or bath. Send me photos of your boat on the water through Class Dojo. Enjoy

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Maths

Today, you will be working on Pages 30 and 31 in your NEW Maths book. This will be our Zoom lesson today and is based on adding and subtracting fractions. When you are adding/subtracting and the denominator is the same all you need to do is add or subtract the numerator. It’s really as simple as that.

 

e.g. 3/15 + 5/15 = 8/15

 

Remember when you are converting to a mixed number you need to look at how many wholes you have and what is left over, e.g. 17/15 = 1 and 2/15 because there is one whole of 15/15 and 2/15 left over.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 19 in your new Maths book. You will need your adding skills for this page. Use the number lines to help you.

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Pages 20 and 21. Page 20 focuses on the correct use of verbs and active and passive sentences. When looking at active and passive sentences you need to look at the subject, verb and object within the sentence. If the subject is doing something to an object then your sentence in active. If your object is having something done to it by the subject then this is passive.

 

Eg. Joseph kicked the ball – Joseph (subject) is kicking (verb) the ball (object) = Active

 

The ball was kicked by Joesph – The ball (object) was kicked (verb) by Joesph (subject) = Passive

 

Page 21 has a focus on comparing words. Take your time to look at the examples and add the most relevant suffix onto words where needed.

 

BBC Bitesize

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be focusing on the features of a newspaper report and looking at the 5 w’s that are used to help structure a newspaper report.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zym8bqt

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 18 in your new English book, this is about recapping on your sounds

 

Science

As we moved on to States of Matter last week, it is time to focus on one particular matter – Gas. Take a look at the PowerPoint below and read through this completing any of the questions and activities as you go. Once you have done this, we are going to focus on one of the biggest fizzy drink manufacturers in the world – Coca Cola. Produce a timeline of events that made Coca-Cola one of the biggest companies worldwide. Who created the famous drink? Where was it first invented? How did it become globally recognised?

Don’t Forget…

Monday 6th July

Good morning Year 4, it was lovely to see some of you in school Friday you all did so well. I hope everyone had a lovely weekend and is ready to go for this week’s home learning. You are all doing such a fab job. This week's Zoom lessons will be on Tuesday and Thursday at 10am, and look out below for a new chapter of Harry Potter that has been added.

 

Challenge

Today’s challenge is based around flags, each country around the world has their own flag, each Cub pack in the UK has their own flag. Now it’s time for our class to have their very own flag. Take your time to design your own flag that represents everyone in our class. Make it as bright and colourful as you want.

 

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Maths

Today, you will be working on Pages 38 and 39 in your NEW Maths book. On Page 38 you need to think about those rounding skills you used last week only this time the number after the decimal (tenth) is going to tell you whether to round up or stay the same.

 

On Page 39 you need to order the decimals, descending means from largest to smallest and ascending means smallest to largest. Remember to pay particular attention to each digit because if you have the same tenth then you need to look at the hundredth column to compare. When it comes to the stopwatches remember the fastest time will be the smallest number.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 18 in your new Maths book. You will need your adding skills for this page. Read the question carefully and use your column addition.

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Pages 31 and 32. Page 31 focuses on descriptive language, similes use as or like to describe something eg The waves rose like mountains.

 

Whereas, a metaphor states what something is eg: The classroom was a whirlwind of activity last Friday. And finally, onomatopoeia is when words sound like the noise they describe, eg. crack, bang, splash.

 

On Page 32 this focuses on you vocabulary choices and gives you a variety of words that mean the same thing.  

 

BBC Bitesize

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be focusing on different types of conjunctions again to make sure you are 100% on coordinating and subordinating conjunctions.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zrn796f

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 15 in your new English book, this is about using commas in a list.

 

History

Today you are going to cover a couple of important aspects of Roman life, one being the houses and the second being amphitheatres (where they went for entertainment). Read the articles below and take some time to think about the questions posed next to them. Let me know what your favourite fact is once you have read both texts.

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Maths

Today, you will be working on Pages 36 and 37 in your NEW Maths book. Both of these pages are based on dividing by 10 and 100. Remember when we have done this in class we have talked about the numbers are the things that move – not the decimal point. When we divide by 10 we have to move the numbers 1 place to the right as there is 1 zero in 10.  When we divide by 100 we have to move the numbers 2 places to the right as there are 2 zeroes in 100.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 15 in your new Maths book. You will need your number bonds knowledge for this.

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Pages 18 and 19. Page 18 focuses on colons and bullet points, those of you that did BBC Bitesize yesterday have had a heads up on bullet points. Remember we use bullet points to create a list and colons tend to start the list.

On Page 19 this focuses on semi-colons and single dashes. Both these pieces of punctuation can be used to replace a conjunction or to make a comparison between two things. When you are putting in the single dashes think about where you would pause in the sentence and make sure the clause makes sense then put your dash in.

 

When using semi-colons (;) they either punctuate where a conjunction would be, to make a comparison or they go between items in a detailed list

 

eg: The youngster walked past many people on his way to the park: an old lady pushing her trolley; a young mum with her toddler in a pushchair; and a teacher who he recognised from school.

 

BBC Bitesize

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be focusing on comprehension skills based around the book, ‘Agents of the Wild’. Take your time to listen to the videos and read the extracts carefully before completing the activities.

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 14 in your new English book, this is about using commas in a list.

 

Creative Writing

Today’s creative writing is all about the picture above. Can you see the tiny door on the right-hand side? What/Who do you think uses it? Where is it?

Take a look at the attachment below, choose one of the activities to complete. You can choose from continuing the story, answering questions about the door, fixing sentences or drawing the creature you think will emerge from the door.

Thursday 2nd July

Good morning Year 4, we will be on Zoom for our lesson at 10am, if you haven’t joined us yet today may be the day that you do – I have an extra special surprise for you in today’s lesson. Make sure your questions for Romans are ready as you will need these when you are in the lesson.

 

Challenge

Today’s challenge is called Put it on the Map, for this activity create your own map of where school is and mark key landmarks around the local area so that people know where to find our school.  You could use symbols to represent different things such as a pencil or book for the school building so everyone knows where they go to learn. Make sure if you do use symbols that you create a key too so your map readers know what each symbol stands for.

 

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Maths

Today, you will be working on Pages 28 and 34 in your NEW Maths book. Page 28 is based on counting in hundredths, remember that hundredths are out of 100 so your fraction would have 100 as the denominator (bottom number) and that when you are converting tenths to hundredths you need to multiply the numerator and denominator by 10. On Page 34, you will be focusing on decimals, you will need to think about the value of the digits it is showing you. Think about your place value knowledge and what each digit represents.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 14 in your new Maths book. You will need your number bonds knowledge for this.

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Pages 54 and 55. Both of these pages focus on prefixes and suffixes. Those of you that have been completing the BBC Bitesize activities have covered some of this already. Remember a prefix comes at the start of a word, pre meaning before and a suffix comes at the end of a word. They are both added to what is known as a root word.

 

For example, unbelievable – un is the prefix, believe is the root word, able is the suffix.

 

Examples:

Prefix = un, super, dis, anti, im, ir, il

Suffix = ing, ed, ful, al, able, ible, ness

 

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be learning about when and how to use bullet points.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zcvdg7h

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 13 in your new English book, this is about using question marks and exclamation marks.

 

Art

Following on from your successful texture treasure hunts last week, Mrs Cara is going to talk you through and show you how to add texture to your drawings. Watch the video below and take some time to look at the different textures she picks up from the images that are shown. Don’t forget to send over your art work on Class Dojo.

Maths - This will be our Zoom lesson

Today, you will be working on Pages 12 and 13 in your NEW Maths book. Both of these pages are about Rounding. When rounding you need to remember the rules, if it is 5 or more you round up however if it is 4 or less it stays the same ten/hundred/thousand that you had to begin with.

 

Rounding to the nearest 10(look at the ones column)

46 would round up due to the 6, this would be 50

32 would round down due to the 2, this would be 30.

 

Rounding to the nearest 100(look at the tens column)

371 would round up due to the 7, this would be 400

328 would round down due to the 2, this would be 300

 

Rounding to the nearest 1000(look at the hundreds column)

4903 would round up due to the 9, this would be 5000

3495 would round down due to the 4, this would be 3000

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 11 in your new Maths book. You will need your times tables knowledge for this one.

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Pages 12 and 13, these pages are focused on apostrophes. Remember that apostrophes have more than one use. They can be used to show when something belongs to someone,

 

e.g: Ally’s bike, they can show plural nouns too, e.g: The boys’ football boots, or they can be used for contractions, e.g: Don’t.

 

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be learning about the difference between fiction and non-fiction writing.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z7n4ydm

Monday 29th June

Morning Year 4, I hope you had a great weekend and are ready to go for some more home learning this week. We will be Zooming on Tuesday and Thursday this week so keep your eyes peeled for the codes when they come out. Have a great day, don’t forget to keep your flat teachers working hard too.

 

Challenge

Today’s challenge is called A Cut Above the Rest and involves a piece of paper, a pair of scissors and a pencil/pen. Create a border around your page that is going to keep the paper in one piece, draw your design in the middle making sure at some point it is touching the border so it doesn’t come away. Cut out the parts you don’t need and hey presto you should have something that looks like the images below. Your drawing can be of anything you want it to be.

 

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Maths

Today, you will be working on Pages 18 and 19 in your NEW Maths book. On Page 18 you will need to remember to lay out your calculations – do this in your book to demonstrate your working out.

 

On Page 19, this is again focusing on your correct use of the calculation method (column subtraction), take your time and remember you can’t subtract anything from 0.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 10 in your new Maths book. You will need your times tables knowledge for this one.

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Pages 24 and 25, these pages are focused on conjunctions. They can be split into two types – co-ordinating conjunctions and subordinating conjunctions. Co-ordinating conjunctions join two independent clauses that make sense on their own together and Subordinating conjunctions joins clauses that have a relationship and the clause being joined wouldn’t be a standalone sentence.

 

Use the images below to help you when you come to identifying the co-ordinating and subordinating conjunctions.

 

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be learning about suffixes, their use and the rules when it comes to using them in spellings.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zvqn2v4

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 10 in your new English book, this is about using conjunctions. Remember these join clauses together, in this case you need to use and, but, or.  

 

History

Today’s lesson has a focus on Pompeii, this was an ancient city located in Italy. It was once thriving during the Roman period but became buried under metres of ash and pumice due to the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

 

Take a look at the video below that details a timeline of events throughout the day of the eruption of Vesuvius. Imagine you are a civilian of Pompeii, write a short diary entry for each time stamp on the video – you will need to use your observation skills for each part and remember there has to be a time when you stop writing as it isn’t safe anymore.

Friday 26th June

Morning Year 4, well done on our Zoom lesson yesterday you are doing a fab job and it’s lovely to see you on there. Parents thank you for taking the time to support them in these sessions. 

 

This week is National School Sports Weeks (At Home), each day I will add an activity for you to have a go, send over any videos to the school Facebook page and any photos of you having a go over on Class Dojo. This will replace the challenge for this week.

 

Sports Week Activity 5

Choose one of the activities below, set a challenge for yourself or family and capture it – don’t forget to send photos over on class Dojo.

 

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Maths

Today, you will be working on Pages 22 and 25 in your NEW Maths book. On Page 22 you will need to recall your times tables facts – I suggest doing this page first before Page 25 to get your brain warmed up ready.  

 

On Page 25, this is going back to using short multiplication, remember to line the numbers up correctly and add any digits that you carry over.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 7 in your new Maths book. Remember that the crocodile always eats the bigger number.  

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Pages 36 and 37, this is a focus on the use of Standard English. This is the correct form in which we write, all books, newspapers, magazines articles etc use Standard English.

 

Eg: My sister hasn’t got no shoes on = Non-Standard English

My sister hasn’t got any shoes on = Standard English

 

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be revisiting a book we have already studied a lot about, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. There are some videos and extracts to read from different books than we read – it’ll be interesting to see if you can still remember the story and what happens in it.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z43gp4j

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 2 in your new English book, this is about nouns. Remember nouns are the name of a person, place, object or thing.  

 

Creative Writing

Have a watch of the video below – Pigeon Impossible. It takes Agent Walter on a mission but unbeknown to him a pigeon is about to ruin his plans. Once you have watched the video, think about a new mission for Agent Walter and how the pigeon is going to ruin this mission too. You can make it as imaginative and bold as you want – just remember that the pigeon is always going to cause problems.

Thursday 25th June

Good morning all, it sure is good to have the sunshine back. It looks like you are all having a lot of fun with your flat teachers at home, the activities you have had us doing are great. Our Zoom lesson this morning will be on the English activities so make sure you have your pages at the ready.

 

This week is National School Sports Weeks (At Home), each day I will add an activity for you to have a go, send over any videos to the school Facebook page and any photos of you having a go over on Class Dojo. This will replace the challenge for this week.

 

Sports Week Activity 4

Choose one of the activities below, set a challenge for yourself or family and capture it – don’t forget to send photos over on class Dojo.

 

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Maths

Today, you will be working on Pages 60 and 61 in your NEW Maths book. On Page 60 you will need to recall your knowledge about coordinates again, the questions on this page ask you to complete shapes and find missing coordinates. When you get to Q2 there are no numbers on the axis, use what you know about how you read coordinates (along the corridor and up the stairs) to help you with this one – the coordinates are hidden in the other points.

 

On Page 61, this is going back to the charts and graphs you have looked at recently and just making sure you remember what you are doing when reading them carefully. Not a lot to do here just make sure you complete the bar charts accurately.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 6 in your new Maths book. Remember to take care when you look at the missing numbers and be careful where you are placing them on the number line.

 

English – This will be our Zoom lesson

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Pages 15 and 16, this is a focus on commas, brackets and dashes. Page 15 has more of a focus on commas, remember these can be used for lists as well as parenthesis and they also are used after fronted adverbials too.

 

Page 16 remember these pieces of punctuation can all be used for parenthesis. Parenthesis is where the extra information has been added.

 

Eg. Zoe, who is Heather’s friend, likes to bake cakes

The extra information has commas either side of it, it could have dashes or brackets instead as they all do the same job here.

 

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be learning how to create characters and what you need to think about when it comes to writing about a new character.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zp76wnb

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 5 in your new English book, this is about verbs. Remember a verb is a doing and being word.

 

Art

For today’s Art lesson follow the link below, this will take you to the Oak National Academy website where you will find Mrs Cara who is ready to do some art with you and send you on a texture treasure hunt around your house.

Wednesday 24th June

Morning all, it was great to see you on Zoom again yesterday and thank you for sharing all the wonderful work you are doing at home, it’s a pleasure to see it each day. Our next Zoom will be tomorrow and the codes will be sent out later today, it would be great to see you there.

 

This week is National School Sports Weeks (At Home), each day I will add an activity for you to have a go, send over any videos to the school Facebook page and any photos of you having a go over on Class Dojo. This will replace the challenge for this week.

 

Sports Week Activity 3

Choose one of the activities below, set a challenge for yourself or family and capture it – don’t forget to send photos over on class Dojo.

 

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Maths

Today, you will be working on Pages 58 and 59 in your NEW Maths book. On Page 58 you will need to recall your knowledge about coordinates that we covered in yesterday’s lesson. Remember, when reading and plotting coordinates you will need to go along the bottom first to find the first digit and then up to the second digit – plot your dot or cross on the corner of the square where those two points meet.  Remember, the x coordinate comes first because x comes before y in the alphabet.

 

On Page 59, again we looked at this a little bit yesterday but you will need to be careful when counting how much the shapes have been translated. Always refer to the same vertex (point) on the shape to help you. Remember to count the corners –not the squares.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 5 in your new Maths book. Remember to take care when you look at the missing numbers, use what you have around those numbers.

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Page 56, this is a focus on synonyms and antonyms. Synonyms are words that have the same meaning as another word and antonyms are words that have the opposite meaning of another word.

 

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be taking part in the National Writing Day, watch the videos and have a go at the challenges that have been set. I’m sure you will come up with some wonderful similes, metaphors and poems.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zssbp4j

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 4 in your new English book, this is about verbs. Remember a verb is a doing and being word.

 

Geography

 

Last week in Geography you learnt about the water cycle and the terms used in the process, this lesson follows on from that and looks at how rain and clouds are formed. There are a couple of experiments included if you have the materials to carry them out you can, if not don’t worry I’m sure you can see from the images what would happen. The cloud measuring activity will be great fun to do, take a photo of you using it although I’m not too sure how many clouds you will see outside today with the weather (remember don’t look directly at the sun, make sure you put your paper in a different direction).

Tuesday 23rd June

Good Morning all, well done for your work yesterday. It looks like you are keeping your flat teachers busy and having great fun too. Thank you to those of you that sent photos over yesterday, they are always a delight to see. Zoom will be at 10am this morning and we will be covering the maths activity that has been set below so please have your book and a pen/pencil ready.

 

This week is National School Sports Weeks (At Home), each day I will add an activity for you to have a go, send over any videos to the school Facebook page and any photos of you having a go over on Class Dojo. This will replace the challenge for this week.

 

Sports Week Activity 2

Choose one of the activities below, set a challenge for yourself or family and capture it – don’t forget to send photos over on class Dojo.

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Maths – This will be our Zoom lesson

Today, you will be working on Pages 34 and 35 in your old workbook. On Page 34 you will need to recall your knowledge about coordinates and some angle knowledge too. Remember, when reading and plotting coordinates you will need to go along the bottom first to find the first digit and then up to the second digit – plot your dot or cross on the corner of the square where those two points meet.  Don’t get confused by vertex/vertices, these are the corners of the shapes you are making.

 

On Page 35, again you will need to go along and then up to find the coordinates of the items, remember to put the coordinates in brackets with a comma between each digit. When translating it relates to moving items on a coordinate grid. You will always talk about the left/right movement first then the up/down. Remember to count the corners of the movement.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 2 in your new Maths book. Remember the place value of the digits and read the information carefully to help you find the numbers being described.

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Page 4, this is a focus on adjectives. We have looked at adjectives before but just to refresh your memories – an adjective is used to describe the noun, it gives more detail about a person, place, object or thing.

Eg. The young boy kicked the blue and orange football.

Young is an adjective as it describes the boy and blue and orange describe the football.

 

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be learning about what authors do and reviewing a book that you have read recently.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z2ycf82

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 6 in your new English book, this is about adjectives too. Remember an adjective describes a noun.

 

Science

This week in Science you are going to look at the environmental changes that are happening all over the world and the impact they have on animals and their habitats. Take a look at the presentation and complete the activities are stated in there. You will need your best researching skills to find out information about a chosen endangered animal and think about what can be done to help and protect your chosen endangered species.

Monday 22nd June

Good Morning Year 4, I hope you all had a great weekend. It was lovely to see you on Friday and I hope you are ready for this week’s home learning. I am really impressed with how hard you are all working. Our next Zoom session will be tomorrow at 10am, I will send out the codes later on today, any problems just let me know.

 

This week is National School Sports Weeks (At Home), each day I will add an activity for you to have a go, send over any videos to the school Facebook page and any photos of you having a go over on Class Dojo. This will replace the challenge for this week.

 

Sports Week Activity 1

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Maths

Today, you will be working on Pages 39 and 40 in your old workbook. On Page 39 you will need to look carefully at the information in the table when creating the bar chart on the right. Just like you have done for the last couple of maths sessions you need to pay attention to exactly what the question is asking you. On Page 40 take a close look at what each football is showing you – if the whole football is 4 then ¼ of 1 is going to be 1.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at the link below. You will be looking at sorting 3D and 2D shapes.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zdjtjsg

 

English

In your English books I would like you to have a go at Page 2, this is a focus on pronouns. We have looked at pronouns before but just to refresh your memories – a pronoun is a word you could use to replace a noun to stop your writing becoming too repetitive. Read the top box on your page and this will give you a reminder of what they are.

 

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be reading and understanding texts, this is very useful when we do our comprehension sessions.

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 2 in your English Workbook but also access the BBC Bitesize activities below and have a look at the Set 3 sounds on the YouTube link.

History

Take a look at the Rotten Romans video below – this has lots of new information about the Rotten Romans. Today’s lesson will be our last on the Romans and I am giving you the option of how you want to present what you have learnt about this period in time. You might want to create a newspaper report about how they changed Britain, a fact file about the Emperors, a leaflet about the weapons they used and how they fought their battles it is entirely up to you. Time to show off what you have learnt during this topic.

Good Morning Year 4, as I mentioned in our Zoom lesson yesterday Miss Bradshaw and I will be delivering new maths books to you today as well as your flat teachers. We’re looking forward to seeing you and it’d be great to see you if we didn’t manage to last time. Have a good day and see you later.

Challenge

Today’s challenge is to find all 27 pieces of food in this food based wordsearch. I know you all love a good wordsearch – who doesn’t. See if you can find all 27 – send me a picture when you have.

Maths

Today, you will be working on Page 38 in your workbook. Again this has a focus on interpreting data and reading information from a bar chart. Remember to look at all the information in the chart carefully and read the question twice so you understand what it is asking you to do. Be careful with your subtraction and work it out on paper.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at the link below. You will be looking at properties of 3D shapes.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zp2tjsg

 

English

In your new English books I would like you to have a go at Page 51, this focuses on your handwriting. I know it’s been a while since we’ve done beautiful handwriting in our English books but now is your chance to take your time and show off your amazing handwriting. Take time to copy out the paragraph in your neatest handwriting possible.

 

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be reading and listening to extracts of the book ‘Slime’ by David Walliams. You then have some activities to complete based on the extracts and finding evidence in the text.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zqpx8hv

Creative Writing

Take a look at the video below – watch Geoff’s story and produce a written piece about Geoff and his inventions – you might choose to write a newspaper article about what he creates, several diary entries about how he comes up with his ideas and what he has to do to invent the new products, you could even do a recount about what happens to Geoff over the course of the clip. It is completely up to you today what type of writing you do.

 

'From day dot, young Geoff had a curious and unshakeable love for beans.'

Thursday 18th June

Good Morning Year 4, you are still doing an exceptional job when it comes to home learning, well done. We will be back on Zoom again this morning, this time it will be an English lesson so you will need your new English books ready (see pages below). I hope to see you there. If you have not received the codes please let me know.

 

Just a couple of other things to mention – Don’t forget it’s Father’s Day this Sunday (21st) why not spend some time during your Art today creating a Father’s Day card ready for the big day.

 

Assembly

The Duchess of Cambridge (Kate) is leading an assembly on kindness today at 11:00am, I think this would be great if you tuned in to watch her deliver it.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/assemblies/kindness/

 

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Challenge

Today’s challenge is linked to the Phonetic Alphabet, this alphabet helps us tell letters apart when we are communicating. Take a look at the words related to each letter of the alphabet in the document below. Your challenge today is to write a code using the words rather than letters and ask someone to solve your code – you can even send them my way and I’ll have a go.

Maths

Today, you will be working on Page 37 in your workbook. We are moving on to interpreting data, this has a focus on reading information from a line graph and completing a table. Remember to look at all the information in both the graph and table carefully and read the question twice so you understand what it is asking you to do. Be careful with your addition and work it out on paper.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at the link below. You will be looking at properties of 2D shapes.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zq6p7yc

 

English (This is our Zoom Lesson focus)

In your new English books I would like you to have a go at Page 10 and 11, this focuses on punctuation in sentences. Remember your full stops and capital letters, pop the sentences in the correct order(again, don’t forget to use full stops and capital letters) and then in the final section on Page 10 you need to change questions from informal (like talking to a friend) to a more formal tone (like talking to the Queen). When you move on to Page 11 remember that the subject of the sentence is who/what it is about and the object is the thing that is having something done to it.

 

 Eg. The boy kicked the ball – Boy is the subject as this is who the sentence is about, ball is the object as this is having something done to it.

 

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be learning about rhyming in poetry and the patterns that are used. Take a look at the link below along with the activities.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z3tx8hv

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 10 and 11 in your new book but also access the BBC Bitesize activities below and have a look at the Set 3 sounds on the YouTube link.

Art

Last week you spent some time looking at Henry Rousseau and created your Simba drawings from the tutorial. This week I would like you to spend time looking at the style of Andy Warhol, he was another famous artist that had a very distinctive style. Take a look at the Andy Warhol section of the Bitesize information and watch the video about him.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zxr3trd

 

Once you’ve watched that, click on the link below for ideas on how to create your very own Andy Warhol style piece of art. Remember, it’s the same image that is used it’s just the colours that change.

Wednesday 17th June

Good Morning superstars. Well done to Jacob for winning bingo in our Zoom session yesterday – your prize will be delivered later this week. Our next session will be tomorrow, I will send out the codes later today for that. Have a fantastic day and I can’t wait to see all your wonderful work on Class Dojo.

 

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Remember a multiple is a number that is in that times table, a square number is when a number multiplies by itself – the answer is the square number and a prime number only divides by itself and 1.

 

Challenge

Today’s challenge is called Pixel Art. Pixels are tiny squares that create images – use the grids below or create your own grid to create a pixelated picture like the one below.

 

Maths

Today, you will be working on Page 30 in your workbook. For this you will need to use your knowledge of time again, think about the difference between am (morning) and pm (afternoon) and the use of your 24-hour clock you used yesterday. Remember the hands and what they each tell us about the time – the little hand points to the hour and the long hand points to how many minutes have passed, don’t forget to use your 5 times tables for the minutes. For the last question you will need to use your knowledge of how many minutes are in an hour and convert the minutes to hours. Don’t forget to read the questions really carefully to see what exactly you need to work out.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at the link below. You will be looking at position and direction in football

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zsvgn9q

 

English

In your new English books I would like you to have a go at Page 53, this is a focus on the use of plurals. Plurals are when you have more than one thing

 

eg: teddy (singular – only one) teddies (plural – more than one).

 

Be careful with some of the words though because even though they become plural they don’t always change from the singular

 

eg: The deer ran across the field (one), The deer moved in their herd (more than one).

 

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be learning a poem off by heart – there are some great tips on how to do this. Perhaps once you have learnt the poem and polished your performance it can be filmed and sent over to the school facebook page – it would be great to see.

Geography

Last week you started our new topic of Water in Geography, this week we are going to focus on the Water Cycle. Firstly, take a look at the video below – this song will be stuck in your head all day after a couple of listens.

 

Water Cycle Song.mp4

Once you’ve listened to the song have a look at the presentation and complete the diagram of the water cycle, labelling each part on the image or even spend some time drawing your own water cycle diagram.

Good Morning all, you sent over some fab work yesterday and I can’t wait to see what today brings. Our next Zoom session is today at 10am, in this session we will be doing our maths activity so hold fire on the page if you are joining us. If you haven’t received the codes please send me a message and I’ll send them over before 10am.

 

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

 Challenge

Today’s challenge requires you to be creative, the PDF attached has a template of a football shirt, at the moment they are blank and it is up to you to create a new design for a football team of your choice or you might want to create your own team. Don’t forget to send them over for more dojo points. 

 

Maths

Today, you will be working on Page 31 in your workbook. For this you will need to use your knowledge of time, we looked at this before we finished school so you’ll need to jog those memories. Remember that when converting to 24 hour you use the time in the am form and add on 12 more hours as it is 12 hours later in the pm. For Q2 you will need to recall how many hours there are in a day and use your multiplication knowledge. Q3 needs you to use am or pm, remember am is the morning and pm is the afternoon/evening and for the last question you will need to remember how many days there are in a week.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at the link below. You will be looking at finding a quarter of a shape and an amount

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zfx6dp3

 

English

In your new English books I would like you to have a go at Page 42-43, this is a focus on your comprehension skills with poetry. Some of you who completed the BBC Bitesize activity have already done some poetry this week so I thought it would tie in nicely.  Take your time to read the text on Page 42 a few times so that you know what is happening and look up any words you are unsure of then have a go at the questions on Page 43 – you can underline any key information you need for your answers too.

 

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be learning about onomatopoeia and having a go at creating your own sound poem. Use the link and activities below, I look forward to reading your poems later.

Science

Last week you looked at classification keys and what features different species had and the habitats that they lived in. This time you are going to take a look at your local habitat – this could be your garden, a space outside the front of your house, a local park that you visit, somewhere you go on a walk/bike ride it’s up to you. Read through the presentation first so you know what you are looking for and then think about any environmental changes that could be seen as a threat, record anything you come across on your record sheet and think about what you could do to make it better and then create an idea about what you can do to help.

Good Morning Year 4, I hope you had a fabulous weekend. It is Loneliness Awareness Week this week, perhaps if you pick up the phone and have a chat with a nan, granddad, auntie, uncle, a relative you haven’t spoken to for a while it would make their day just to let them know you’re thinking of them.

Friday 12th June

Morning all, don’t forget we will be having our last Zoom of the week today at 10am – this will be your creative writing lesson so bring along a pencil/pen and some paper for your writing. You have all done a fantastic job this week with your home learning, you continue to impress be on a daily basis so thank you and well done.

 

Don’t forget to send over photos on Class Dojo of work you do, I’m looking forward to seeing it all.

 

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

 

Challenge

Today’s challenge is called Changing your Coat and no it’s not about the kind of coat you wear when it’s cold and raining outside. This is about creating a Coat of Arms that is specific to you. On the attachment below are shields that link to the month you were born, an image that links to you and the colour you would choose too. Have a go at creating your own Coat of Arms and send over the finished product on Class Dojo.

 

Maths

Today, you will be working on Page 28 in your workbook. For this you will need to remember that there are 100 pence in £1. When asked to find ¾ of an amount when you already know ¼ remember that there are 3 of the ¼ amounts and lastly, use your decimals when subtracting with money especially when you are taking amounts away from £5.00. Remember you cannot take from 0.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at the link below. You will be looking at comparing amounts of money

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zjxmxyc

 

English

Now you all have your new English books I would like you to have a go at Page 8, this is a focus on adverbs. Remember, at adverbs describe how, where or when the verb is taking place.

 

Eg. The snails raced steadily towards the finish line. Steadily is the adverb as it is describing how they are racing.

 

Last Friday, I went to the cinema. Last Friday is the adverbial phrase as it is describing when something happened.

 

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be giving your opinion and looking at how you can summarise one of the best book ever written, a personal favourite of mine, Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo.

Creative Writing

This will be the lesson we focus on for our Zoom session so if you are joining us you can look at the image and story starter beforehand but it will also be shown in the session too.

Story Starter

Carefully picking up the giant bubble-maker and dipping it into the enormous pot of bubble-making liquid was a satisfying feeling. She loved the way it felt when she dipped and scooped and dipped and scooped until she had a perfect, crystal clear circle of liquid inside the circular head of the bubble-maker. Looking into the red and blue rusted pot, she could see the transparent liquid gently sloshing around inside. There was a soapy film that sat on the top of the liquid, and in that soapy film she could see a reflection of the clouds as they manoeuvred their way across the navy-blue sky.

   She had discovered the magical powers of these bubbles when she was a girl. As there was only a limited amount of the precious bubble-making liquid, she had used it wisely and sparingly (only when she really needed it).

   These bubbles were different from any other bubbles, because they had the power to …

 

Can you continue the story of the girl and the bubbles? Begin by finishing the sentence above, describing what power the magic bubbles have.

 

If you are not able to join us on Zoom then I would like you to continue this piece of writing with your own ideas of what the magic bubbles do and what journey the girl would go on in/with the bubble.

Thursday 11th June

Good morning Year 4, it was great to see some of you on Zoom yesterday and I really enjoyed the game we played at the end – the photos that have been put on school’s Facebook page are brilliant.

 

I will be holding another Zoom lesson tomorrow so I will get the codes over to you later today. Can I please remind you that you need to be in a central location in the house (not a bedroom) and there must be an adult present too.

 

Don’t forget to send over photos on Class Dojo of work you do, I’m looking forward to seeing it all.

 

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

Challenge

Today’s challenge is called One Person’s Rubbish Is Another Person’s Landmark. Your challenge is to use items from your recycling (if they haven’t already been collected) to create a landmark from around the world. If you haven’t got any recycling materials then you could use paper or draw a landmark.

 

Don’t forget to send photos over on Class Dojo for extra points.

 

Maths

Today, you will be working on Page 27 in your workbook. For this you will need to remember that area is the measurement inside the shape – for these questions you will probably be best counting the shaded squares (hint: mark each one once you have counted it so you don’t get confused). On Q2 when it asks you to write your answers in mixed numbers that means add up the whole numbers and then add up the fractions and write them down together, eg: 1 ¼  + 4 2/4 = 5 3/4 .Then on Q3 you will need to use your converting knowledge again, this time for grams and kilograms. Hint: 0.56kg is the same as 560g. Any problems don’t hesitate to contact me through Class Dojo.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at the link below. You will be looking at bonds to 100 today.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/znmpf4j

 

English

Now you all have your new English books I would like you to have a go at Page 5, this is a focus on verbs. Remember, they are doing words so you will need to think about the action that is being done in each sentence. I’ve included an image below that will give you help on the model verb section should you need any help.

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be exploring the use of synonyms and antonyms. Remember synonyms are the same and antonyms are the opposite.

Art

Today’s art lesson is taken from BBC Bitesize - learn about Henri Rousseau a famous French painter, take a look at the video about his paintings and then you can choose either a paint, collage or printmaking activity to do afterwards it’s up to you.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zjgj7nb

 

I’ve also included another Disney drawing below for you to have a go at, sticking with The Lion King theme from last week – this time it’s Simba. Under the video you will also find the template that is used to get you started. If you don’t have access to a printer don’t worry I’m sure you can draw these lines out on your page to help you.

Give it a name and let me know the ideas you come up with, I’m sure your creative minds will come up with some fab ideas.

 

Maths

Today, you will be working on Page 26 in your workbook. For this you will need to remember that perimeter is the measurement around the outside of the shape, there are 100cm in a metre and 60 minutes in an hour. We will be covering all this in our Zoom lesson at 10am.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at the link below. You will be looking at repeated addition and multiplication.

English

Now you all have your new English books I would like you to have a go at Page 1, this is a focus on nouns. Remember they are names of places, people, things and objects. Don’t forget to send your work over, it would be lovely to see in your new book and if you get stuck don't forget to ask.

 

You can also have a go at accessing the BBC Bitesize content. Today, you will be revising how to use a thesaurus – again I know we’ve used ours quite a bit in class but it’s always good to refresh your mind. Remember the thesaurus is about finding words that have the same meaning.

Tuesday 9th June

Good morning all, it was lovely to see you on Zoom yesterday afternoon. Keep your eyes peeled today for more Zoom details coming your way for tomorrow’s session. Keep up the fabulous work you are all doing, it really does make a difference and parents/carers I am so thankful for the time you are spending helping with home learning, it’s much appreciated.

 

As I said in my message yesterday, Miss Bradshaw and I will be out and about today delivering your new English workbooks. See you later.

 

Don’t forget to send over photos on Class Dojo of work you do, I’m looking forward to seeing it all.

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

For today’s puzzle you will need to remember the difference between area and perimeter.

Area is the inside of the shape (Length x width)

Perimeter is around the outside of the shape (Add up all lengths)

I’ve left some clues on there to help you.

Challenge

Today’s challenge is all about how you see the world. You will need someone else to do this with you, whether it’s a brother/sister or mum/dad. You will need a pen/pencil and paper and you should sit back to back. Person A, picks an object they can see from where they are sitting you will then describe the object for Person B to draw. Remember you can’t tell them the name of the object – think about how they would draw it on the page.

 

Once you have finished describing take a look at what Person B has drawn – does it look anything like what you were describing? Perhaps you could swap over too and Person A could have a go at drawing.

 

Send me your photos of the drawings you do and I’ll see if I can identify them. Have fun!

 

Maths

Today, you will be working on Page 25 in your workbook. For this you will need to remember the following conversions:

1000g = 1kg

1000mm = 1 metre

100cm = 1 metre

1000m = 1km

 

Johnny – Please have a go at the link below. You will be looking at adding and subtracting to keep it fresh in your memory.

Take a look at the presentation attached below and use the resources to help you create your very own classification key.

Have a watch of the video and continue the piece with your own writing.

 

What happens next?

What does the boy learn the next time he helps out?

What happens to all the stars?

 

Make sure you are very descriptive in your writing, think about the sparkle of the stars and the noise they make, think about how you feel when you are there and include the different aspects of English you have learnt about this week (Brackets, apostrophes for contractions and possession, spellings with suffixes).

Today, we are going to be working again in your maths workbooks. We will be covering this in our Zoom lesson at 10am so if you hold fire on this page if you are joining us we can do it together.

If you are not joining us today then please work through Page 23 of your maths book. We have worked on fractions previously in class, if you have any problems let me know on Class Dojo.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 24 in your Maths book. Today, it’s looking at fractions. When it asks you to shade in the boxes, remember if it is ¼ that means you count 4 boxes and shade one of those in.

 

English

Today I would like you to focus on accessing the BBC Bitesize content for English as I know we have completed the comprehension books. I am in the process of ordering some new English books to keep you busy. Today’s focus is on using brackets. Take a look at the videos and complete the activities below.

Johnny – Please complete the BBC Bitesize activity above the same as everyone else today.

 

Science

During the last Science lesson you learnt about vertebrates and how to classify them, today you are going to learn about invertebrates the opposite to a vertebrate. It’s time to go on a bug hunt but before you dash off outside looking for bugs you will need to read through the presentation and use the sheets attached for reference. Make note of all the bugs you come across by making a quick sketch of them, then choose your favourite a produce a fact sheet about it. Just make sure after you’ve found them you put them back in their natural habitat.

Roman Sculptures

Sticking with our topic of the Romans, I thought you could have a go at sculptures today as this was something the Romans liked to collect. They very often had sculptures in their homes of people’s heads these were called busts, these sculptures were of famous people during the Roman period. I’d like you to get creative today and create or draw a sculpture of a famous person from our modern day lives.  I’ve attached an image of some bust examples, yours don’t have to be as detailed as these. Can’t wait to see them.

This video, is linked to our VE Day work and gives you a perspective from soldiers and children who are finding out information about what happened. The letters that are seen floating from the soldiers were those written to loved ones back home. I want you to think about what you would write in a letter to those at home if you were one of those soldiers. What would you tell them about the war? What would you tell them that made their families think happy thoughts? What would you say that would let them know that you are still safe and not to worry? Think about all these things and put them in to a letter from a soldier writing home.

So this week I will add a different decoration idea you could make to help celebrate.

 

Take a look at the news article and video below that explains what VE Day is and why we celebrate.

Also, I have attached a newspaper article and an image related to this.

So this week I will add a different decoration idea you could make to help celebrate.

 

Please send photos over of you making the decorations, where you put them but most importantly of all we would love to see photos of you celebrating on Friday.

 

Makaton Movers

Take the chance to learn something new and tune in to Mrs Whitehouse’s lesson each day on our school Facebook page, you will learn a new Makaton sign or two.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s your daily puzzle. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

 

VE Decoration Making

Today’s decoration ideas come in the form of bunting and colouring pages that you could put in your window.

I have attached the template for you to make some Union Jack themed bunting – print or draw as many as you want to put in your windows. Also attached are some colouring sheets that you could also use in your window display.

PSHE

Please watch the video below about Michael Jordan and how he overcame difficult points in his early playing life to become one of the world’s most successful sports stars. Jordan set his own goals and expectations of himself and never gave up, he practised regularly and got to where he dreamed of being in his playing career. Once you have watched the story, I want you to set yourself some goals, remember to make them achievable, it could be something like learning how to do a particular football skill that you find tricky, completing a series of books that you’ve never got round to, being able to draw something or complete a sports challenge of running so many laps of the garden or bouncing so many times on a trampoline. They are your goals and you must work on them to achieve them.

Now we know about the spread of the Roman Empire across Europe it’s time to have a look at what the Romans changed for us. Have a read of the PowerPoint about what made them build roads in Britain and about where the roads are still at this moment in time.

Once you’ve read the information use an atlas or Google maps to find the Roman roads and mark them on a map of the UK.

 

Once you’ve mapped out the Roman roads that still exist in Britain, take a look at the mini project of showing a cross-section of a Roman Road. The most inventive way of showing this will earn you extra dojo’s.

Don’t forget that there are many dojo points on offer. I have also received some wonderful Roman project work too, the photos of the work you have put in over Easter is fab, looking forward to seeing some more this week.

 

Parents, if you have not joined us on Class Dojo yet contact me through the school Facebook page and I can get you sorted with a login so you can start sharing pictures of your children’s work.

 

Daily Puzzle

Here’s today’s daily puzzle, there weren’t many correct answers yesterday. For those of you wanting to know, the answer was 4 hours and 5 minutes as Boris only had to double the mixture one more time when he started from one tube instead of two. Remember, all correct answers earn dojo points too.

 

Signing with Mrs Whitehouse

I am aware that some parents will have seen Mrs Whitehouse's makaton sign a day video that was put on school's facebook page yesterday. Follow the link below to access yesterday's sign again and check back later to see what today's sign will be. There will be a new sign added each day.

Spread of the Roman Empire

Once you have had a look at this and found out more about the spread of the empire, take a look at the mosaic information – can you find 5 more facts about Roman mosaics and have a go at making your own mosaic. You can either draw a design or have a go at using a collage to create your design.

Friday 3rd April

Good morning all. Firstly, thank you to all the parents/carers that have supported the children over these past two weeks of home learning, it is really appreciated. As we reach the Easter holidays, please remember to stay safe and take care of yourselves – let’s make this last day before the holidays awesome. I can’t wait to see your activities on Dojo today.

Remember for every task that is completed and photos sent to me there are dojo points available.

 

Daily Puzzle

Some jokes for you today. Those that respond on Dojo with the correct answer get extra dojo points:

  1. What did the Dalmatian say after lunch?
  2. What do you call a duck that gets everything right?
  3. What kind of tree fits in your hand?

 

Easter Project


As the Easter holidays have arrived, it’s time for a new learning project for you to complete with your child over the course of the coming weeks. The children’s new topic after Easter is based on The Romans. Please see the attached information for their project, this also contains the date it needs to be submitted by. Please feel free to share through Class Dojo.

 

Calling all WOLVES Supporters – I know we have a few

For those of you with a printer at home, Wolves have released some colouring pages for the children to complete. Louise Cobbolt, the lady who designs the programme covers, has designed images of Adame Traore, Raul Jimenez and more. Please see the attached link. I would love to see some of the completed ones.

Wolves Colouring Pages

I’ve also attached some colouring pages for the other football fans out there.

Maths

Children please complete Page 8 of your booklet, this will finish off your adding pages in your book. Remember to show your working out if you need to and read the question carefully.

 

Johnny – Please have a go at Page 2 in your Maths book. Use your knowledge of numbers and the names of the digits you see.

 

NUMBOTS

There is also a new Maths game for you to try from the makers of TT Rockstars – type in Numbots into your search engine and load the page, the login for this is the same as your Rockstars login. Give it a go and see how you get on.

Something New To Try

Today, instead or as well as Joe, you could try a different form of exercise – Yoga. This is good for your flexibility, balance and concentration. It also helps you to relax.

Take a look at the Harry Potter based yoga on the link below:

Geography

Last week in Geography, you learnt about the northern and southern hemisphere along with the equator, the information you found about countries on the equator was fabulous. This week we are going to turn our hands to reading coordinates on maps

When reading the coordinates on the map you need to read the lines of LATITUDE first followed by LONGITUDE. See if you can read the coordinates on the sheet and find out the places that are there. Read the PowerPoint to help you identify latitude and longitude before having a go at the attached map and coordinates.

Household Task

As we are on Day 10 of home learning and you did such a great job last week, it’s time we helped your parents/carers around the house again. Send me photos of how you are helping people out at home – these tasks are worth additional dojo points.
