Friday 24th April 2020

Hello Year Four, I hope you are all ok. Your learning challenges for today are below. Please use the class email address (year4@stmartinscofe.com) 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!

Snap…Snap…Click…The sound of a hundred cameras filled the air.

Craning their necks to the skies to see the enormous specimen, the crowd all let out gasps and moans in unison as the figure took its first steps.

Standing over 50 metres tall, the metal beast cast a foreboding shadow over the gathering, transfixed spectators. No-one knew why it was here. No-one knew where it had come from. No-one knew whose side it was on. However, its intentions were about to be made clear…

 

Sentence challenge!

A preposition is a word that shows the relationship between one thing and another.

It may tell you where a thing is in relation to something else. E.g. The silver, shining giant stood on the car.

It may tell you when something is in relation to another event. E.g. The crowd watched until the giant departed.

Can you find any prepositions in your writing? Can you write 3 sentences that contain prepositions?

Is it possible to begin a sentence with a preposition? Can you end a sentence with a preposition? What about trying to start and end a sentence with a preposition?

 

Sick sentences!

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

The robot stood in front of the people. His hands and feet were big, and his body was really big.

 

Question time!

Who do you think is controlling the robot? Does it have a mind of its own?

Where has the robot come from?

Are the people in danger?

Can you think of a good name for the robot?

Is there a chance that robots will become part of our society in the future?

 

Perfect picture!

Imagine your job is to design a robot. Draw or describe what your robot would look like, and what it could do.

  • What does the song make you think of?
  • How old is this piece of music?

 

  • Did the tempo stay the same througout the song?
  • In music, dynamics means how quiet or loud the music is. What are the dynamics of this song?
  • Can you identify the instruments/voices that you heard?
