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!

In many ways they were so different. When they stood next to each other, the stark contrast between their appearances was plain for all to see.

Appearances, however, can be deceiving. They were the best of friends….

 

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 passengers watched from inside the plane.

It may tell you when something is in relation to another event. g. The excitement would not end until the plane landed.

Can you find any prepositions in the sentences below? Can you write 3 sentences that contain prepositions?

The donkey plodded through the field. It was only a few minutes until feeding time. Rain started to fall from above them. They ran into the barn.

 

Sick sentences!

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

The donkey stood next to the dog. They were friends. The dog was happy. The donkey was happy.

 

Question time!

What animals can you see in the picture?

In what ways are these two animals different?

In what ways might they be similar?

How do you think the two animals discovered each other?

How have they become friends?

What do you think makes a good friend?

How can you show other people that you are a friendly person?

What kind of people do you like being friends with?

What kind of people would you not want to be friends with?

 

Perfect picture!

Can you draw a picture of two other creatures that would make unlikely friends?
