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 (year4@stmartinscofe.com).

 

 

Story starter!

Every night, when the city sleeps, they come out of hiding. Their home is far below the city, and during the day when the city is alive with activity like a hive of busy bees they spend their time planning and plotting their next job.

You see, during the night, when they think nobody will see them (they are exceptionally small) they sneak around above ground. They take things. Valuable things.

Have you ever had something go missing and wondered where it has gone? You may have just found the reason why!

Tonight is no different: they are on their way to make a small fortune…

 

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. Dangerously, the tiny vehicle sped through the traffic lights.

The tiny vehicle dangerously sped through the traffic lights.

 

Sick sentences!

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

The vehicle went across the road. There was a car waiting to cross.

 

Question time!

Where do you think they are going tonight?

Who do you think they are?

How do you think they manage to take things without being seen?

Do you think stealing things is wrong? Why is it wrong?

If someone doesn’t have enough food, is it ok for them to steal more?

How would you deal with someone taking something from you?

 

Perfect picture!

Where do you think the characters in the vehicle live? Draw or describe what you think their home might look like.
