Year 4 – Home Learning 02/04/2020

Good morning everyone,

We hope that you are keeping well and looking after yourselves.

You can email pictures of the work children have completed in books at home. Please remember to email these through, as they are amazing to read, and we would love to see them.

Use our Year 4 Blog on Purple Mash to contact your teachers if you have any questions and need support (Sharing, Shared Blogs, Year 4 Blog).

 

Today, we are going to add an additional post with a few projects that children can complete in addition to the home learning set every day. These projects are not mandatory but can be done if children have spare time or who would just like to keep busy. These projects should be carried out over multiple days and children should be encouraged to review and improve their work.

 

See below for the tasks we would like your child to complete today:

 

Home Learning for Thursday 2nd April 2020:

Maths:

Complete LESSON THREE – HUNDREDTHS AS DECIMALS on White Rose (Week 2) – https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/

You will see that there is a short video that you can watch with your child and an activity to download and complete (I will also attach a downloaded version below).

NB: please complete this task instead Hundredths (this is the task for the learning you would have done yesterday).

Please email the completed work to your child’s teacher.

 

Game: if you want to try something a little different, play the game Board to Pieces set on Education City.

 

Continue to practice your times tables using the 2do set on Purple Mash.

 

English:

Task One: complete the inverted comma (speech) tasks set below.

Inverted Comma Tasks

Reading:

Chapter 2 of Animal Boy is still available to read on Purple Mash (reread if you need to).

Complete the SPAG activity attached below related to this chapter.

Chapter 2 – SPAG Activity

 

Remember to continue with your own reading. Maybe you could read to a family member or even a pet!

 

Spelling:

Still using the 5-spelling word you chose at the beginning of this week, play battle ships with a member of your family. Use the link attached as an example of how to set the game up (the ‘battle ships’ will be your words!)

Year 3 and Year 4 Statutory Spellings

Battleships

 

Art:

The Ancient Greeks believed that every part of their life was influenced in some way by the Greek Gods and Goddesses. Use this link to learn about the different Greek Gods and Goddesses – https://www.historyforkids.net/ancient-greek-gods.html

 

Choose your favourite God or Goddess to create a piece of art.

 

You have the freedom to choose how you would like to do this but here is a list of ideas to get you started:

  • Sketch a portrait of your God/Goddess (all you will need is a pencil).
  • Using colours, draw your God/Goddess from head to toe (you could use coloured pencils or pens).
  • Create a piece of mosaic art of your chosen God/Goddess (instead of using coloured pencils you would use small pieces of paper and glue).
