Hello again Year 4!
This week’s learning has lots of voice overs and lots of videos from Mr Perry and Mrs Lynes to help you with your learning. We will be moving to logging into TEAMS together soon but this week we have made sure that you have lots of explanation from us and you get to see our faces and hear our voices too. Please remember to click the speaker of the black square on the powerpoint to hear the voiceover or to see the video.
If you require learning from Mrs Millican, please visit the appropriate link below.
Today we will learn how to convert between a 12 and a 24 hour clock time. Mrs Lynes has recorded a short video for you to look at alongside the powerpoint below. If you are finding time too hard at this level, there are lots of activities on Purple Mash that we have put in your To Do folder. Work through these today and Wednesday.
Once you think you’ve understood, have a go at the activity. If you complete this and need a challenge, I would like you to complete a timetable of your day (when you usually come to school might be easier) using 12 and 24 hour timings. For example:
7am 07.00 – My alarm goes off.
7.30am 07:30 – I brush my teeth.
3.15pm 15.10 – It’s hometime.
Below is another powerpoint with Mrs Lynes teaching you about word classes. The powerpoint will play on it’s own this time but please listen carefully. You can still skip backwards and forwards if you need to. There are full instructions about your task and which challenge to choose. The challenges are also below.
Lesson 2 of your Timbre learning. Follow the Oak Academy lesson which follows on from Friday.
PE – Please complete an activity of your choice. Joe Wicks, Yoga, walk with parents… It’s up to you but you must be active for at least 30 minutes!
Mr Perry has recorded a video so you can complete your Arithmetic questions and then go through your working out and your answers. We know that lots of you are good at these now but it’s important to keep practising and more important to watch Mr Perry’s working out. Accuracy is vital in arithmetic. When you have done this and marked it, please spend 15 minutes on TT Rockstars.
Poetry today. You are going to look at three different types of poems and then have a go at writing your own. As usual, there is a powerpoint with Mrs Lynes teaching you about each type and then explaining your task.
Mrs Lynes has recorded a voice over to the attached powerpoint to talk you through the lesson. This should take you most of your afternoon but should also be fun. We look forward to seeing your photos.
We are going to revise 12 and 24 hour time again and look at some reasoning problems to show our understanding fully. Time is difficult to understand and if you struggle, go onto Purple Mash in your To do area, you will find some telling the time activities that you can do instead. This will be challenge 1.
Today we are going to look at a descriptive poem by a poet called John Betjeman. Your job is to analyse and anotate the poem using your BOOMTASTICS to help you. Don’t worry, Mrs Lynes will teach you how to do this in the video below.
We are looking at States of Matter and instead of listening more to Mr Perry and Mrs Lynes, we thought an Oak Academy lesson would be interesting. Please engage with this and complete the activities and then look at the powerpoint and extra activities which are also below. This will take you the afternoon.
Units of length today. We are going to recall facts about units of length, convert between them and solve some reasoning problems also. there are 3 challenges. If you find the learning difficult, again there are some length activities on purple mash in the To Do section. If the video on each powerpoint fails to play (I know there have been a couple of issues), I have included a voice over as well. Both teach you the same things.
Today you are going to think about a place out in nature that is special to you. Listen to the powerpoint voice over where Mrs Lynes will tell you what your activity is.
Humanism lesson two.” Where do Humanists find their Truth?” Another rest from Mrs Lynes. An Oak Academy lesson for you.
Please practise the attached spellings. You know which group you are in. Practise the spellings and put them into sentences.
As we have not done any guided reading due to not being in school, I have attached an inference task and three different comprehension activities for you to choose from. They are first news stories. If any of this reading is too difficult please read bug club and answer the comprehension bugs. All of you can do the inference task as it is the same as the ones we do in school.
Revision of the people in your family. Use the powerpoint to help you to draw and label family members. If you are feeling like a challenge, try and remember sentences that you can say that introduce your family members. You were doing this with Mrs Bonsar before Christmas.
Use this time to practise times tables. I would also like you to go back and revisit any areas of maths this week that you have found difficult. We have covered alot and it’s important that you have good understanding before we move on each week. Use purple mash to help you if you need more support.
What is Tonal Shading? Work through the powerpoint and then have a go at the activity sheet. There is a section which suggests working with a partner – do this alone or with a sibling or parent.
