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.

 

 

Perfect picture!

Can you draw a picture of what a scene looks like in the supermarket in Animal Town?

 

Story starter!

Most visitors are a little shocked (to put it mildly) when they arrive at Animal Town. Despite the fact that the name of the town gives a slight indication to passers-by that the inhabitants of the town are ‘not normal’, it’s as if people don’t believe things until the see them with their own eyes!

Once you get used to being in Animal Town – or so they say – seeing an orangutan behind a desk in a sheriff’s office and upholding the law to an impeccably high standard becomes relatively ‘normal’…

Imagine you are a visitor in Animal Town. Try to describe your experience.

Alternatively, you could be one of the residents…

 

Sentence challenge!

‘Can you use verbs and adverbs to describe what each of the animals in the picture are doing?

E.g. The zebra meanders lethargically across the road.

Nonchalantly, the orangutan lounges on the bench.

You could experiment by using adverbs in different places in your sentences.

 

Question time!

Which animal would be suited to working in the health clinic?

Can you give suggestions as to the occupations of the other animals in the picture?

If you could have any job, what would it be and why?

If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?

What problems might they encounter in Animal Town that humans don’t encounter in human towns?

Are there any similar problems that both animals and humans experience?

Would animals be better off without humans? Would humans be better off without animals?

 

Sick sentences!

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

A lion sat on the van. A giraffe put his head out through the window. The zebra walked across the road.
