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!

The driver glared at the sight in front of him. He simply couldn’t believe his eyes!

The blizzard continued to swirl all around them, making it even more difficult to steer. He knew he had to act quickly, or else it would be too late.

The distracting whirling and clanking of machinery all around him didn’t help to settle his nerves, but he knew he had to wrestle control of his emotions: his next move was to be a defining one…

 

Sentence challenge!

‘Show, don’t tell’ is technique that writers use to describe a character’s emotion. Rather than telling the reader how a character feels, you can show them what happens to their body.

E.g. Instead of saying ‘he felt sad’ you could write ‘a tear rolled down his cheek’, or instead of saying ‘he was scared’ you could write ‘he began to tremble’.

Can you use ‘Show, don’t tell’ to describe the driver’s feelings?

 

Sick sentences!

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

He looked out of the window. It was snowy. He was scared. He could see something.

 

Question time!

What vehicle is the driver operating?

What might he have seen in front of him?

What is the weather like outside?

Is there anyone else depending on the driver to salvage the situation?

What happens to your body when you start to panic?

Have you ever panicked? How did you overcome the feeling?

 

Perfect picture!

Can you draw what the driver has seen out of the window?

You could also draw the vehicle the man is driving.

Saying your birthday in Spanish

In this lesson, we will recap our numbers and alphabet, as well as saying our name and age in Spanish. We will then expand our number knowledge to learn the numbers up to 31 and the months of the year in Spanish, so that we can say the date of our birthday in Spanish! For this lesson you will need some paper and a pen or pencil.
