Below are two files for this week. One contains picture based activities while the other file is a short text to read with some questions to answer - please note the answers are on the second page of this file! Please ensure you continuing to read and talk about the books you are reading. Here are links to some websites where you can read books online, the Oxford Owl website has books that are on reading levels.
You could also listen to audiobooks, audible is free at the moment for children’s books:
For those of you missing our Sentence Stacking, Jane Considine, who invented the writing scheme we use in school, will be delivering daily English activities for pupils to complete at home.
Don't forget you can continue to improve your spelling abilities using Spelling Shed
I have created two files that you could also choose to work through. One is to work on improving a sentence, the other is the chocolate themed work that I mentioned last week. I had a lot of fun imagining my own chocolate bar; I hope you do too! Please continue to share your work by emailing it to school or tweeting it, I'm loving seeing what you have been working on
The children use WhiteRose Maths as the basis for their mathematical learning. The link to the website below will take you to their Year 4 webpage. The focus for this week is decimals, halves and quarters, and money. There is no expectation to carry out all of the tasks for the week, so feel free to dip into the resource how you feel fit. I have also attached a file with some reasoning questions that are based on multiplication.
Please remember that if you are struggling with anything then you can access activities from a previous class page. For example, we would rather you completed Year 3 or 2 numeracy tasks than struggle with Year 4 numeracy tasks. Home learning is new to us all and it's about keeping busy, not struggling with anything!
Doing a little regularly on the following websites will help improve your arithmetic skills:
For the Daily 10 you can select the appropriate year group and the skill that you wish to focus on. In class we would usually use it to practice our time tables, but you can use it for all sorts of areas of numeracy.
I have again sent each Brilliant Badger a challenge on TT Rockstars - it would be great if you could accept my challenge and see if you can beat me! Feel free to send me challenges as well, I will accept them throughout the week
Following on from your bridge research last week, this week you get to create your own bridge! Use whatever you have in the house - lego, rolled up newspaper, recycling, dry spaghetti and marshmallows etc. Maybe you could experiment and discover which is the best building material. Build your bridge over a gap, say between the seats of two chairs.
Can you get your bridge to hold the weight of a small toy? Perhaps you have a small toy car you could use!
Take photos and share your bridge with your friends, family and school too!
This term we would have been learning about Living Things and Their Habitats. Here is a link to a BBC teach video explaining about different groupings of plants and animals:
After watching this video, see if you can come up with a few living things for each of the following categories: flowering plants, non-flowering plants, vertebrates and invertebrates.Can you come up with a living thing for each letter of the alphabet? You might need to do some research if you want to accept this challenge! Set out your categories however you wish, you could draw a table with 4 columns or perhaps have a piece of paper for each category.
Odd One Out
This week, you can have a go at drawing famous Disney characters! Here is a link to a page that has video tutorials for drawing Mickey Mouse, done by a Disney cast member who has been drawing Mickey for years:
