Year 4 – Home Learning 20/04/2020

Good morning everyone,

Welcome to the summer term!

I know that this is not how we would like to begin the new term, but we hope that you have managed to have a restful and relaxing Easter break.

Our home learning will continue in the same way as it did before the break. We will upload a variety of learning tasks every morning to the class page. Any work that children complete should be emailed to your child’s teacher.

If you have any questions, please email us as we will be accessing our emails throughout the school day:

Bethany.daglish@parkside.herts.sch.uk

Cora.banton@parkside.herts.sch.uk

 

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

For your first writing task, we want you to write an email to your class teacher (Bethany.daglish@parkside.herts.sch.uk or Cora.banton@parkside.herts.sch.uk) and tell us what you have been doing over the Easter Break.

We want to hear all the things you have been doing to keep yourselves busy and safe.

 

NB: remember to start your email off with ‘Dear Miss/Mrs Daglish/Banton’, end your email with your own name and include paragraphs tell us all about your Easter break.

Also, don’t forget to really send your email to your teacher!

 

Reading:

Read Chapter 3 of Animal Boy (the story has been set on Purple Mash for the week).

Complete the Multichoice Quiz that is set on Purple Mash.

 

Remember to read your own book everyday (reading helps us develop fantastic language for our own writing!)

 

Spelling:

These are going to be your spelling words to learn this week:

Interact, interfere, intercity, international, intermediate, internet, intergalactic, interrupt, intervene, interlude.

NB: on Friday, test your child on how they have done with learning to spell these words.

 

Task One – begin by practicing spelling these words with the look, say, cover, write, check task (this can be done on paper at home.

Task Two – complete the word search attached below.

Science:

We’re going to be looking at Animals and their Habitats.

 

Task One – organise the animals (attached below) into two groups using a venn-diagram – lays eggs and can fly. Any animals that come under both headings will go in the middle and any animals that don’t fit either heading will go on the outside.

Animals

 

Something a little different!

  • Use the attachment to complete a variety of fun science activities at home with your child. They are activities that are easy to resource and complete – STEM projects
  • This zoo (https://nationalzoo.si.edu/webcams) has a variety of animals that they are streaming live via webcams. Choose your favourite animal and see what they are doing during lockdown! Look at their habitat – what have they got in their enclosures?
