Hello Year Four, I hope you are all ok. Your learning challenges for today are below. Please use the class email address if you have any questions about your learning or if you want to share anything you have learned at home. Keep shining!

 

English

Please look at the picture below, then choose some of the activities to do in your exercise book from school. You could share your learning with your teachers by asking a parent to help you send a picture of your learning to your class email address.

 

 

Story starter!

Snip..Snip…Snip…The scissors began to tear the countryside apart. Towns, fields, rivers and oceans. Forests, valleys, mountains and lakes. The world began to unravel piece by piece, strand by strand.

This was to be a new beginning. What would this new world look like?

 

Sentence challenge!

Can you use adverbs in your writing to describe how something is done?

Can you use adverbs before nouns?

Can you use adverbs after nouns?

e.g. Viciously, the scissors snipped their way through the endless fields.

The scissors methodically snipped their way through the abandoned countryside.

 

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help? Could you add an adverb?

The scissors cut. The ground started to move. A man was cycling on the road. He was scared.

 

Question time!

Who is controlling the scissors?

Why do you think the World is being re-shaped?

If you could change the World what would you change?

What would you keep the same?

 

Perfect picture!

Can you draw what the world will look like once the outer layer has been cut away by the scissors?

Curriculum - PSHE

Have a discussion with someone at home about trust. You could play a trust game e.g. leading a blindfolded partner around an obstacle course; putting your hand in a feely bag; falling backwards into the arms of someone who is ready to catch you!   Use these experiences to reflect on what trust is and what it is not. What does it mean to trust someone? 

Whom do you trust?  Why? Can trust between two people be one way?

 

 

What is the connection between trust and responsibility? 

What qualities make a person trustworthy? Is it possible to trust someone you do not know? Why? 

Write a job description of a trustworthy person.  

Discuss the relationship between trust and loyalty.

Is trust important? When? Why?
