  • recent

This blog post tells you some fun ways to practise spellings: https://www.lawfordmead.essex.sch.uk/blogs/year4/2020/03/16/spellings/

P.E. – Why not have a go at some of these challenges?

If you prefer, click on the following link and have a go at the Friday Maths Challenge: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/  or have a go at this challenge below:

Also, remember to have a go at practising your times tables! https://www.lawfordmead.essex.sch.uk/blogs/year4/2020/03/16/times-tables-practice/

English – Grammar:

  1. Have a go at the following game online: https://uk.ixl.com/ela/year-4/identify-adverbs
  2. Sometimes we add ‘s’ to end of a noun because it is plural (more than one of it):
Singular (one)Plural (more than one)
bird
chair
cup
teddy
birds
chairs
cups
teddies

Sometimes we add ‘s’ to the end of a noun because it belongs to someone (possession). We would also need to use an apostrophe correctly:

  • Charlie‘s bag
  • The boy‘s pen
  • Mum‘s coat
  • Miss Jennings’ laptop

3. Can you sort these sentences into examples of plural or possession?

You could print them out and sort them or write the into a grid like this:

PluralPossession

4. Check your answers!

5. Have a go at this sheet:

PSHE – Picture News:

This week’s story: A red, white and blue paint job on the Prime Minister’s plane has recently been revealed.

Question: How important are first impressions?

Watch the following video for a virtual assembly all about this week’s news story! You may need to pause the video to give yourself some more time to think about the questions!

Here are some additional ideas for you to have a go at!

Have a relaxing weekend! Don’t forget to Seesaw your work from this week.

  • purpose
  • quarter

This blog post tells you some fun ways to practise spellings: https://www.lawfordmead.essex.sch.uk/blogs/year4/2020/03/16/spellings/

P.E. – Why not have a go at some of these challenges?

Maths – Click on the following link and have a go at Lesson 4 for week 11 – quadrilaterals: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/. Then complete the work below:

ANSWERS!

English – Creative Writing:

resource image

Have a go at one or more of the following activities:

Question time!

What is it that is so strange about the ship?

Who do you think the crew are?

How old do you think the ship is?

What do you think the number 13 on the flag means?

What do you think the bell is used for?

Is there anything else strange that you notice about the picture?

Perfect picture!

Think about what the captain of the ship looks like. Can you draw or describe what you have imagined?

Story starter!

Can you continue the story?

Shrouded in a veil of sea mist, the ghostly galleon swept through the black ocean waves. One minute you saw her, the next you didn’t. She was like no other ship. Blink, and you missed her…

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 ghost ship can be seen through the fog.

It may tell you when something is in relation to another event. g. The ship cannot be seen until after midnight.

Can you write 3 sentences that contain prepositions based on the image?

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Could you add an adjective or an adverb or improve the verbs used?

The ship went through the water. Fog and mist were all around her sails. The crew looked out.

Science – the rate of evaporation and temperature:

Today, we are going to look at how the temperature affects the rate of evaporation.

  1. What is evaporation? Remind yourself what evaporation is: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zkgg87h/articles/zydxmnb
  2. Prediction – When do you think evaporation is faster? When do you think evaporation is slower? Would a puddle evaporate faster when it is sunny or when it is cold? Would washing dry faster when it is sunny or when it is cold? When do you think the rate of evaporation increases – when it is hot or when it cold?

3. Fill in the gaps (you will end up with 2 different sentences):

Evaporation is _____________(slower/faster) when the temperature is _____________(hotter/colder).

Evaporation is _____________(slower/faster) when the temperature is _____________(hotter/colder).

4. Watch this video to find out more: http://www.viewpure.com/yPq3YQ_wxCc?start=0&end=0 (you could do your own version of the experiment at home – make sure you stop the video at 0:28 so you don’t find out what happens!)

5. Were you right? Do you need to edit your sentences?

Evaporation is _____________(slower/faster) when the temperature is _____________(hotter/colder).

Evaporation is _____________(slower/faster) when the temperature is _____________(hotter/colder).
