HISTORY

You have been introduced to Loki and you have probably all heard about Thor and his hammer. If you follow the link there is a Viking story about when Thor visited the land of the giants with Loki. The story is told in three parts.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3evMuE5bLjQ&list=PLcvEcrsF_9zIx5V4quS4wAZkS4d0ohguI&index=4

 

Choose one part of the story, for example when Loki and Thor found the enormous ‘mansion’ or when Thor was set the tasks by the giants. Write out the part of the story you have chosen in your own words. You can write it as a story or divide your paper into boxes and present it as a cartoon strip. When you have finished don’t forget to go back and edit it. Check that everything you have written makes sense and that your spellings and punctuation are correct. Illustrate your story to make it even more interesting.

SCIENCE Electricity 1

Resources 5 We are starting a new unit on this week and although some of the activities we won’t be able to cover practically, we can have a look at some of the work we should be able to consider at home or at school in our bubbles.

Watch this BBC clip and consider what makes all the items featured work.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zwqd7ty

Children complete the Electricity Mind Map Activity Sheet to show what they already know about electricity, and think of some questions they would like to find out about. Watch PP presentation and imagine they have been asked to provide commentary for the video clip to explain where electricity comes from. Complete the Electricity Experts Activity Sheet  OR record themselves giving the commentary and finally consider how different our lives would be without electricity (especially in these lockdown conditions)

ART

 

Art activites for the next few weeks will involve making things out of cardboard boxes, so save any boxes you get so that you have some ready. This week the task is to make a guitar. The instructions are attached, (11)Cereal Box Guitar.

 

GEOGRAPHY

 

This week we will be finding out about the Tropics. Look at the Power Point (8) In the Tropics.

 

Select an area of the tropics using the (8)Tropical Weather Areas Activity Cards. Research the climate of that area of the tropics, using the Power Point and the internet. Use the Tropical Weather Report Activity Sheet (8) to record your findings. Use this information to prepare a pretend weather forecast. You can write this in your exercise book rather than performing it.

 

The two following activities are optional and do not have to be completed.

Create a tropical jungle picture – use a black pen to draw overlapping trunks and branches and jungle animals hiding amongst them. Add detailed patterns and vivid colours to the foreground to help camouflage the animals.

 

Plan a visit to a tropical location. What could you do and see there? What preparations would you make (for example, packing, arranging vaccinations and visas)? How would you travel to the tropics and then between locations?

Week commencing 1st June 2020 

Hello everyone and welcome to the final term in Year 4 - not what any of us expected. 
 
We hope you have made the most of the glorious weather and enjoyed half term. 
 
Below sets out the learning for the week ahead for children learning at home or those in school. You will see this week we have included the timetable we 'may possibly' be working to in school, depending on the bubbles the Y4 children who are attending school are in  (I am following it with my bubble). It is intended for information/ interest only and certainly not dictating how you face the challenges of learning at home. Mrs. Hillier will be monitoring work submitted as I am in school (I will help where possible), as well as preparing planning and resources for  future weeks. Please bear with us answering emails. 
 
The work has been uploaded onto Google Classroom and also onto the school website - this week it is in different folders so your child can choose the level they wish to work on (or dip between the folders if they are stronger in one area than another) A (easier) B (Y4 level) C (challenge level) and there is also a separate folder containing the Classroom Secrets Home Learning packs as some of you we know like to follow those as well. We hope this helps you find the appropriate work more easily and stops you being bombarded with emails today containing the work. If any of you have problems accessing it from either of these sources, then please email us and we can send to you separately.  
 
If you asked us what the priority for learning is in preparation for Year 5 - it would always be times tables and addition and subtraction. If your child has not yet achieved Red level multiplication and division then this would be for us a target area and we would appreciate your support in helping as many children as possible get there. 
 
As a reminder the levels to work to achieve by the end of Year 4 are as follows:

Blue multiplication

 

Expected end of Y2 level

Blue Division

Blue multiplication and division

Green multiplication

Expected end of Y3 level

Green Division

Green multiplication and division

Red multiplication

 

Expected end of Y4 level

Red Division

Red multiplication and division

This week there is a powerpoint Wonderful Water (8), and an activity  The Three States of Water (8) which goes along with the PP and finally an activity sheet Changing State (8) (which includes an experiment that MUST be carried out by an adult not a child for safety)

 

ART

I have planned a short unit of art on drawing fruit and vegetables. The first activity is below.

Use a writing pencil to draw any fruit or vegetables you have in your house. Shade with your pencil to show light and dark patches. Don’t use colouring pencils. When you have finished your drawings, cut open your fruit or vegetables and draw what you can see inside, again using your writing pencil. Peppers would be very good for this activity.

 

GEOGRAPHY

We are going to start sending home geography work, based on the unit All Around the World. This week will focus on the northern and southern hemispheres. Look at the Power Point North and South. (9)

Make a time capsule to hide or bury. There is information to give you ideas in the Objects to Put in a Time Capsule Activity.

 

Below is a suggested order to complete tasks. There are also your spellings to learn this week and a grammar activity to do with prepositions. If an activity is underlined that means it is attached and can be printed off.
