Week Beginning 4th May 2020

Maths update

This week Whiterose Maths and BBC Bitesize Daily have joined forces to create daily Maths lessons. I have added the worksheets and answers for week beginning 4th May below.  If you want to use the introduction videos you can visit either https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/z63tt39/year-4-and-p5-lessons/1 

or https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/ as both sites will have the same objectives. 

 

Times tables update

In discussion with other staff, we  have decided that in order to make times tables more simple and easy to follow, we will put up a suggested weekly times table focus for you that we hope you can have a go at using. We are starting at the beginning and working through.  This will help us to track which times tables that you are learning and able to do. On a Friday we would appreciate it if you could use your Maths time to answer some set questions on these times tables so that we can see how you are getting on with these at home.

 

If you like a challenge, then you can set a time limit and see how quickly you can answer them in, this time limit is Optional, as we know that some of you respond better to timed tests than others.

 

Please can you put some evidence of the times table work that you have been doing in the times table folder of SeeSaw, this could be a screen shot or a photo?

SeeSaw

I have really enjoyed seeing your work, so thank you for sharing it with me.

To make marking more manageable/organised I have set up folders. So from Monday, if you upload anything to SeeSaw I'd appreciate it if you could save it into the correct folder. I will comment on one English piece per week. I hope that from next week, when you upload an item it will ask you if you want to add it to a folder or to the journal. If you add it to the relevant folder (English, Maths, Topic/Science/Lifeskills/Times tables) then that would be brilliant.

 

Just to remind you, you only need to share one piece of English, some times table evidence and one other thing that you are proud of. I love seeing photos and videos with you in them, they really make me smile, so keep them coming please.

 

Thanks for your help and support.

Maths

In response to some feedback that I have received regarding Maths this week, I am making a few minor changes to next week's Maths work

 

Firstly, so that it is easier to follow on the Whiterose website, we will be following the current week on the website (Summer week 2 W/C 27.4.20 starting with rounding decimals). 

Secondly, for those of you who are struggling to work independently on the Whiterose page, you can try the bbc bitesize daily lessons. The bitesize will cover topics that we have already done in school, so should be more revision than new learning. 

If you are still finding Maths challenging, please email me and I can send you some other options. 

 

So for the week beginning 27.4.20: 

Option 1 - Revision from bbc bitesize daily  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/z63tt39/year-4-lessons/1 There will be a lesson posted each day to complete, starting with column addition. 

Option 2 - New learning from Whiterose https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/ Summer week 2, starting with rounding decimals. 

Week Beginning 20.4.20

WEEK BEGINNING 30.3.20

I just wanted to take a moment to say a huge thank you to those of you who have sent me your work. I was blown away by the quality of your writing last week and some of you got outstanding scores on your professor assessor test, so well done. Next week our theme is dinosaurs and I can't wait to see more of your work. 

 

English

This week we are learning all about Dinosaurs in our English work and creating a fact page about Dinosaurs at the end of the week. Follow the work on the power point below for each day and remember to look at Year 3 and 4 work for each day. 

 

Maths

We are continuing with our fraction work this week and finding fractions of an amount. At the end of the week I'd like you to start looking at tenths and hundredths. Lesson 4 is an online lesson from Whiterose Maths, please let me know how you find this as I'd be really interested in your feedback. Please see PPT and work below. 

 

Reading

Most of you have managed to login to Epic reading, well done for this. I think it is a great app and gives you access to so many books. I will set you a book to read and at the end of this book will be a quiz. You can take as long as you need to read the book though.

 

Mathletics and times tables

Please try and go on Mathletics regularly and it would be great if you were improving your multiplcation speed  by visiting following sites:

Topic

As our theme this week is dinosaurs, I thought that some of you might be interested to find out more about fossils: 

 https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z9bbkqt/articles/z2ym2p3 

https://www.dkfindout.com/uk/dinosaurs-and-prehistoric-life/fossils/ 

http://www.planet-science.com/categories/under-11s/our-world/2011/10/what-makes-fossils.aspx  

This is entirely optional, but I know that some of you were enthusiastic about fossils when we started to look at it them before school closed. You might like to create a fact file about them on google slides and share it with me? 

Week beginning 23.3.20

Virtual Jurassic Coast trip - I was delighted to see some of you went in a virtual trip to the Jurassic Coast, what a lovely idea. I really enjoyed watching the videos and looking at the pictures, absolutely fantastic 😁. Alice's Mum gave permission to share her photos, so please see below. 

English - A day in the rainforest. This is a whole school English project. Please see the attached PPT and carry out the year 3/4 work. It would be brilliant if you could complete this on google docs or slides and share it with me. 

Some useful links for your work. 

What is an adverb? https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zwwp8mn/articles/zgsgxfr 

What is a clause? https://www.theschoolrun.com/what-is-a-clause

 

Maths - Fractions. I have attached a PPT for the week, Daily worksheets to complete and I have also attached the answers so that you can mark your work once it's completed. Please complete as much as you can, some of you may need support with answering some of the questions. If you are finding the extensions too challenging then please don't worry about completing them. 

 

Professor assessor - On Friday 27th March you need to login to prof123.co.uk between 9:00am and 5:00pm and complete an assessment on equivalent fractions and adding/subtracting fractions. Remember the school code is WEC and then you need your individual user name and password which should be in your reading records. Good luck! 

 

Reading - I have subscribed to a reading program called Epic. This can be used online or you can download a free app. Look at the sheet below which gives you our class code. Please can you try and logon this week and explore some of the texts, then I can set you tasks to complete over the coming weeks. I have also emailed your parents with instructions on how to set up your account.

Maths

We are learning about fractions this week and focusing on fractions bigger than one and ordering fractions. Please find attached two PowerPoints with some of the lesson starters and four worksheets to look at. If possible, please print and complete, if not then please copy the answers out. The first sheet is for everyone to do, although some of you may want to ask for support with some of the answers, the second sheet is an extension if you want an extra challenge. 

 

Writing

We have just started to look at biographies this week and are beginning to plan and write our own biography about Mary Anning. We looked at an example biography about Roald Dahl and highlighted the features:

Opening paragraph - summarising the person's life.

Use of the past tense

Written in the third person

Key incidents in the person's life

Chronological order

Please have a look at Roald Dahl's biography and highlight these features. 

We are also looking at Mary Anning's life using the attached video. Can you take notes on her life and plan and write an introduction for a biography about Mary Anning. 

 

If you want to share any work with me on google docs or slides then that would be amazing as I can give you feedback. 

 

Reading

Please read the Mary Anning comprehension and answer the questions.

 

Science - There are some lovely ideas for experiments using everyday kitchen items. Aim to do one of these experiments a week. There is a suggestion on how to record your experiment as well. 

Some fun simple science that you could do at home with the whole family- check with an adult first before you start making a mess and raiding cupboards!

Here are some links to sites where you can practise all the wonderful French you’ve learnt at school!  Have fun playing the games and improving your recall of vocabulary.  A few minutes a day and you’ll be confident French speakers in no time at all.
