Year 4 Home Learning – Friday 22nd May

Happy Friday Year 4!

How’s everyone doing? Good, I hope. Today’s subjects are Maths and History…

In Maths, we are going to use all of the learning around hundredths as decimals we have done so far and look at how to make a whole. And if you can remember your number bonds to 10 and 100 that should really help you with today’s work πŸ™‚ Watch this video firstΒ https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/ Β scroll down to Summer Term Week 1 – Lesson 1 but please don’t pause it when it asks you to because we are going to do a different worksheet just so we can get in some extra practise. So, once you’ve watched the video, open the worksheet below and complete that.

Maths – Making a whole worksheet

ANSWERS – Maths

In History, we are going to explore what happened at the very end of the Anglo Saxon period in England and learn about the events that took place in the lead up to The Battle of Hastings, when the Norman period began.

Complete task 1 first – you will need to read up to the end of page 4 on the History – The Norman Conquest information sheet to complete this.

History – The Norman Conquest

When you get to task 2 you are going to complete the ‘Reasons for and against’ worksheet below and I have also filmed a video to help you do this work – scroll to the bottom of this post for the video link. If you can also have a printed copy of the ‘History – The Norman Conquest’ information in front of you as you view the video that would be great, but don’t worry if not.

Reasons for and against – Witan worksheet

In task 3 you are going to design a poster about the man you have chosen to be the next King. The poster template is below.

Year 4 Home Learning – Wednesday 20th May

Hi Year 4!

Thank you for working so hard so far this week πŸ™‚

Today, I have a really fun activity for you in English. You’re going to pretend you’re 30 years old!! That’s SO old, I hear you all say πŸ™‚ What I want you to do is practise your letter writing skills by pretending you are all grown up and write a letter back to your 9 year old self! What advice do you think you might give yourself? If I was to write a letter to my nine year old self, I’d definitely tell myself to work hard at school and that if I did, I could be whatever I wanted to be when I grew up!! Oh and to always be kind of course…

There are a couple of activities to do before you write your letter, so as always read the worksheet carefully and most important, enjoy your writing πŸ™‚

English – Letter Writing

In Maths, we are working on writing hundredths as decimals and I’ve recapped our learning on the first two pages of the worksheet, so read this first before tackling the work.

Maths – Hundredths as decimals

ANSWERS – English Guidance and Maths

Happy Monday Year 4!

English – Comprehension and Character Descriptions

In Maths, we continue our work on decimals by looking at tenths on a number line. Please watch this short video first https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/ (scroll down to week 1 – not summer term week 1 – and go to Lesson 4), before attempting the work. And remember, if you get stuck (and you really have tried your very best), have a look at the answers and challenge yourself to work out to get to that answer.

Spellings

This week we are looking at words ending with ‘tion’. At some point during the week I would like you to write each of these words into a sentence, so if you need to, look up the meaning in the dictionary. Get someone to test you on Friday, or test yourself by simply looking at a word then turning over the page and writing it down from memory.

Spellings 18th May

Extra activity

How do you fancy becoming a secret spy or a code breaker?Β Morse CodeΒ is a detailed system of dots, dashes and spaces used to represent numbers, punctuation and letters of the alphabet. It was particularly used in the Second World War asΒ a way to communicate without the ability or need to use actual characters. The activity sheet below introduces you to the Morse Code alphabet and then has decoding activities for you… perhaps you could send me a coded message, when you’re finished πŸ™‚
