Online Safety During Lockdown

Online Safety During Lockdown

During our home learning we are all using the Internet a great deal more. We are all enjoying the benefits it offers by keeping in touch with loved ones, accessing learning at home, sharing experiences and discovering new opportunities. With this in mind, I would like to remind all of our community members (pupils, parents, carers)  how we can keep ourselves safe while working and playing online.

For pupils: I would like to remind you of our school E-Safety rules and how these can keep you safe.

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 🙂 Watch this video first https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/  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.

Enjoy your work today Year 4 and keep up the good work everyone. I’m so proud of how resilient you are all being. The current situation isn’t easy but I know you are all trying your very best.

Take care everyone and speak on Monday 1st June.

Year 4 Home Learning – Wednesday 20th May

Hi Year 4!

Thank you for working so hard so far this week 🙂

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 🙂 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 🙂

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

Extra activity

Today’s extra activity is Science and helps you to understand what light is and where it comes from. Click on the link and follow the online lesson https://www.thenational.academy/year-4/foundation/what-is-light-and-where-does-it-come-from-year-4-wk1-3

I hope you enjoy your day!
