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!
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.
Suddenly, the wind gusted and Sammy was lifted higher and higher until his owner Beth could hang on no more… “Owwoooooooo!” yelled Sammy, as the world below him drifted further and further away. Up…Up…Up…He went, until Beth was just a tiny dot; an ant far beneath him!
Can you continue this story about the dog that floated away? Can you describe what the dog sees as he is floating away? Where does he finally land? Does he manage to get back home?
Good writers always try to start sentences in different and interesting ways. Can you write a sentence that begins with a noun?
E.g. Sammy, who was afraid of heights, was petrified as he lifted off the ground.
Dogs, who feel comforted by their owner’s presence, become uneasy when they are separated.
The noun is always followed by a comma and the sentence contains a relative clause in the middle.
If dogs ruled the world, how would the world be different? How would the relationship between humans and dogs change?
If there were blind dogs, would there be humans to guide them around?
If dogs could talk, what would they say?
These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help? Could you add an adverb?
The dog started to float. The dog felt scared. Beth didn’t know what was happening to the dog.
Can you draw what happens to Sammy the dog?
Where does Sammy eventually land?

Have you made a rainbow for your window yet?
Lots of families are making rainbows to display in their windows as a symbol of hope to others. The rainbow is a cheery reminder to stay at home and stay safe, and that this will all be over soon.
Perhaps you could spot some rainbows in people's windows as you take your daily exercise. Does anyone recognise where these two rainbows are?
How creative can you be? Perhaps you could use everyday household items to make your rainbow...
