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.

 

 

Sentence challenge!

Make a list of all the different colours you can see in the picture. Can you write a paragraph to describe the scene in the picture, using lots of these colours?

Can you then replace all of the colours you have used with alternative words for those colours? E.g. sapphire instead of blue, emerald instead of green, charcoal instead of black.

What effect does this have on your writing?

 

Sick sentences!

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

The tiger drank from the pool. It was big and orange. It had stripes. It held its body close to the ground as it drank.

 

Question time!

What time of day is it in the picture?

Why is only one tiger drinking from the pool?

Do the tigers know each other?

Why are they ‘on the prowl’ together?

What does the word ‘prowl’ mean? What does it suggest the tigers are doing?

Where will they go once they have finished drinking?

Where in the world would you find tigers? What is their natural habitat?

How do you feel about the fact that some tigers live in captivity?

 

Perfect picture!

Imagine you can read a tiger’s thoughts. Can you draw what might be in each of the tigers’ heads? What are they thinking about?
