Home Learning Year 4

Year 4 Home Learning – Friday 8th January

Good morning Year 4!

Friday already I hear you say? Or are you excited for the weekend? Either way, I have a great day of work for you to get stuck into today. When you’re working I want you to imagine that you are at school… are you focused? Are you listening to the learning? And most importantly, when you are writing are you trying your best and being creative? Try to write more than one paragraph when I set you a task, just like we would in school 🙂 I am enjoying reading some of the excellent stories!

Today you have Maths, English, RE and Art. Remember to send your completed work to me at smstyear4@gmail.com by 8pm 🙂

Mathematics

Today, we are rounding to 1000. It’s our last rounding lesson and I’ve been impressed at your rounding to 10 and 100, so keep up the good work. Follow the lesson, pausing when asked to complete the worksheet.

 

Maths Worksheet – Round to the nearest 1000

English

Today, we are going to use sentences taken from the Borrowers to practise our English skills. We are going to look at how nouns, verbs, adverbs and adjectives are used in sentences. Follow the lesson, pausing when you are asked and writing the tasks in your book.

RE

In RE we are starting our new topic all about the Church community, Each one of us belongs to several different communities, for example: our family community, the school community, the area where we live etc. Today we are going to think about these communities and complete the following tasks:

Task 1: Read the story in the ‘Community Story and Tasks document’ below. Your first task is to answer the questions on slide 2 in your book.

Task 2: Read slide 3 in the document below. Then open the ‘Community template worksheet’  and complete it. I can’t wait to see all the community roles that you think of.

Art

To reflect what we are learning in History – I would like you to sketch a picture of a Viking warrior. You must first sketch the picture with a pencil but once you are happy with it you can use coloured pencils, pens, paints (or whatever you have in the house) to colour it in. You may even want to just leave it as a sketch. Whatever you do, take your time and try to make it life like. I have included some pictures and a ‘How to’ video to give you inspiration, but you might want to do your own research.

Have fun everyone and enjoy the weekend when it gets to 3pm 🙂

See you Monday.

Year 4 Home Learning – Thursday 7th January

Good morning Year 4!

How’s everyone today? Good, I hope!

Well after a bumpy start with our website yesterday, I know many of you may not have managed to finish your work. So today I’m only setting two pieces of work for you – Maths and History – so you have time to complete your work from yesterday. However, I have provided an optional link to a PE session with Joe Wicks, in case you still have energy to burn off when you are finished 🙂 and a list of websites with  additional activities where you can do anything from practising your times tables, learn a new language or simply read a selection of books.

Remember to send pictures of the work you have completed today to smstyear4@gmail.com by 8pm this evening. Thanks!

Mathematics

In yesterday’s work we practised rounding to the nearest 10, and today we are going to practise rounding to the nearest 100. Watch and listen to the video below carefully, pausing and completing your worksheet (below) when asked.

Maths Worksheet – Rounding to the nearest 100

History

Today, we are going to start our new history topic – The Vikings. Hooray I hear you all shout! Perhaps you will find out that your family is related to Vikings… wouldn’t that be great 🙂

Task 1: The first thing I would like you to do today is watch the following videos which introduce you to the Vicious Vikings!

Remember how we learned to make notes? Make sure you have a piece of paper and pencil so you can make notes as you listen. You can pause the video to make sure you get the important information you hear down on paper.

 

 

Task 2: Next, open the presentation below and read through it carefully, don’t worry if you don’t remember everything, just take your time. Once you’ve done this, open the timeline document below and see if you can put the dates in chronological order (time order) starting from the earliest date first.

Task 3: Your final task today is to write a short piece imagining that you are a Viking. You’ve set sail in your longboat to raid Britain back in AD787 (over 1,200 years ago!) and you’re looking for gold, jewels and important manuscripts. You’re prepared to kill anyone who gets in your way!

How do you feel? What might the journey have been like? What are you wearing? What do the people of Britain think of you? Be as creative as you like, using the knowledge you learned in the videos. Remember to write neatly and include all of the skills we’ve learned in school. I’ve included a writing template for you to write on if you are able to print it off.

And finally, here’s a link to a PE session with Joe Wicks if you’re still up for it!

Year 4 Home Learning – Wednesday 6th January

Good morning Year 4!

Well, I didn’t expect to be talking to you via our website and I already miss all of your happy, smiling faces! However, even though we can’t be together over the next few weeks, we are still a team and I hope it makes you feel happy to know that even though many of you are working at home, we’re still all doing the same work and hopefully, having some fun!

Everyday over the next few weeks I’ll be setting you work including Maths and English and all of the other subjects we do in school, such as History, Science, RE, French, PE and Music. And I’ll be encouraging you all to keep up with your reading, spending time with a book of your choice for at least 20 minutes every day!

So, here goes… today you have Maths, English, RE and a Music lesson. Have fun!

Please send all your completed Maths, English and RE tasks to smstyear4@gmail.com by 8pm tonight so I can see all of the work you have done. I will reply by the end of the day tomorrow. Thank you everyone.

Maths

To start we’re going to recap some of the skills we’ve already covered, starting with rounding to the nearest 10, before moving on to practise our addition and subtraction next week. Watch the video below before attempting the worksheet below it.

Maths – Rounding to the nearest 10 worksheet

English

Over the next few lessons we are going to do some work about a book called the Borrowers. Don’t worry you don’t have to have a copy of the book, all you need is a pencil or pen, some paper and of course your brain! Remember, English isn’t about just writing the first thing that comes into your head, but thinking hard about all the skills we have learned, for example, using good punctuation, interesting conjunctions, powerful adjectives and adverbs. So when the teacher in the video gives you a task to write about, show me just how much you can remember!! Click on the link below and follow the lesson. Pause when it asks you to write and write your answers on paper in your very best handwriting 🙂

RE

Today, 6th January is the Epiphany, a special date in the Christmas story as it’s when people celebrate how a star led the Magi – also known as the Three kings or the Wise Men – to visit the baby Jesus after he had been born. Find out more by watching this video here https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/42565054

Then, open the presentation below and read through it. Your task today is to write about three of your talents and how you use them to help others – you can read more in the presentation. I have also included a template for you to write on.

Music

And today’s final lesson is Music. Play the video below and remember to listen to the teacher very carefully. Have fun… maybe you can imagine that you can hear the rest of Year 4 singing along to the chants too!

See you all tomorrow Year 4!
