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 process took a great deal of time and effort, but doesn’t anything that’s important to us?

Will gently moved the back of his hand across the parchment. He loved the feeling of it against his skin; it was smooth and silky like the fresh water of a spring cascading over his fingers.

Feeling relaxed, Will was a master of his trade. Words came as easily to him as song to a nightingale. The whole experience of writing filled his heart with pure joy, but at the same time Will knew he had to concentrate; he had an important job to do…

 

Sentence challenge!

Can you use adverbs in your writing to describe how something is done?

Can you use adverbs before nouns?

Can you use adverbs after nouns?

e.g. Carefully, Will brushed his hand across the parchment to check that the ink was dry.

Will carefully brushed his hand across the parchment to check that the ink was dry.

 

Sick sentences!

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

Will wrote on the paper. The letters were big. The paper was big as well. He loved writing.

 

Question time!

Who is Will? Why do you think he enjoys writing so much?

Is he extremely small, or is the book he is writing very large?

What does ‘he had an important job to do’ mean? Why is he writing? Is he writing for somebody?

What type of writing do you think it is?

What is inside the box?

Imagine you could see the rest of the room Will is in. Can you describe what it might contain?

 

Perfect picture!

Imagine the picture has zoomed out. Can you draw the scene you have imagined?

Visit https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/ and watch the video for Summer Term Week 1 – Lesson 3- Compare decimals. The video will really help with the activities, which can be found below (with the answers too):

Curriculum - Geography 'Why should the rainforest be important to us all?'

Today we are going to think about answering the question 'What is the climate like in a rainforest?'

  • Use the internet or books to research what the climate is like in a rainforest. Is it wet or dry? Is it hot or cool?
  • Think about how the climate of a rainforest is similar / different to the climate in the trees around our school grounds.
  • Complete the Venn Diagram below to show the similarities and differences in the climates of both locations - remember the space where the circles overlap is where you draw or write the things that are similar in both the rainforest and the local woods.

 

 

Curriculum - PE
