Maths Mission…

Today, is a live lesson from Gareth Metcalfe. Watch the video at 9am or on catchup:

http://www.iseemaths.com/home-lessons/

Underneath the video is a blue link, which will take you to the activity sheet. Let me know if you need help finding it!

 

English Activity…

Follow this link to a book explaining COVID-19 and social distancing for children. https://www.flipsnack.com/CSKidsBooks/what-s-going-on.html

 

  1. Read this short book: https://www.flipsnack.com/CSKidsBooks/what-s-going-on.html
  2. Write a letter to your future self.

You may want to include:

  • how you feel.
  • what you are doing.
  • What the weather is like.
  • What you hope to do.

I have attached an example letter for you and you can also find it inside your Showbie- English folder. If you need a letter opener to help you get started, you are welcome to borrow mine!

 

Creative Afternoon- French

Bonjour!

You have all got very good at your counting and number knowledge in French. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsc3qLMaCu8 Here is a little song to help you remember!

Today your challenge is to make your own Easter countdown. It is only 9 days away on the 12th April! I have done a 10 day countdown to show you how you can cross each day off as it goes until the big day! 

 

I have attached an example of one that I have made, as it is quite tricky to explain! It doesn’t need to be an egg, you might do a bunny or sheep etc, but I have attached a template if you wanted to- you can always draw it yourself if you don’t want to print it or do it on Showbie.

 

Drop Everything and Read!

Remember to keep reading every day! You can use your Read Theory https://readtheory.org/auth/login) or MyOn (https://www.myon.co.uk/login/index.html) if you would like to do some reading online. I’m sure you also have some amazing books, magazines, comics (and more) waiting at home to dive into! Audible and Amazon books are also free at the moment. David Walliams has also started releasing a daily audio book on this link: https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/

 

I am so excited to see more of the fantastic things you create today! Please send me pictures of your creations today- I love seeing them!

 

Have another amazing day and an awesome weekend!

Best wishes

Mrs Morgan

Thursday 2nd April

Good morning Class 4. I hope that you had another fantastic day yesterday, I loved reading the things you are all grateful for! Let's hope this beautiful blue sky is here to stay- get outside and enjoy it if you can. Here are todays exciting home learning activities. Keep sharing all of your fun and news with me, I love hearing all about it!

Maths Mission…

Today we are going to look back at our negative numbers! These are our numbers below zero! You might have seen them on a thermometer (if it is super cold), or in parking areas/shops where you can go below the ground level!

  1. Make a number line that shows 20 to -20. You could draw it, make it or even build it. You could use stones and then paper to label each number, or even do the numbers out of sticks! I am always impressed by your clever ideas so feel free to surprise me.
  2. Complete one of the alien mazes- you need to count down in negative numbers to match the alien to its home planet… I have given you a choice of challenging, more challenging or superstar material, so you can choose which one you think you are ready for. If you want to have a go at more than one, go ahead!

 

English Activity…

 

Persuasive writing- Persuade someone to visit your town!

Our topic before the Romans was Ross-on-Wye vs London, if you don’t live in Ross- feel free to complete this task about your own home town!

 

  • Think about all the amazing things (maybe the things that are unique) that your town has to offer, and use this to persuade the reader to visit your town!
  • You might want to make some notes first to help you plan… you could write it as a letter, make it into a leaflet or write an information poster but the challenge is to be VERY persuasive. Think about over-exaggerating, being biased (but not TOO biased) and using lots of positives.

 

For example, one of my points would be:

The town of Ross-on-Wye is full of the hustle and bustle of friendly locals who are always willing to lend a hand. There are plenty of shops full of trinkets and treasures to feast your eyes upon! You simply cannot miss out on experiencing the wonders of Ross-on-Wye.

 

I have attached some lined paper to Showbie (English) in case you wanted to type or write it straight onto there, but you can write it on paper or use a different app if you would like!

 

Creative Afternoon- Geography

 

Modern Rome

We have done lots of learning and research on life in Ancient Rome, but I would like to know more about modern Rome…and I always enjoy learning from you!

 

Find out some information about modern Rome and create a factfile, presentation or poster.

You may want to include information to answer:

  • Where is Rome? What country?
  • What language do they speak there?
  • What are the main religions?
  • What countries are nearby?
  • Which seas surround Rome?
  • Which continent is Rome in?
  • What is the population of Rome?
  • What are the main features?
  • What is special about Rome?
  • What is the weather normally like in Rome?
  • What kind of things can you do there?

There is a lot of information on this page, if you need some help to find anything!  https://kids.kiddle.co/Rome

Maths Mission…

Today we are going to revisit our counting in 25’s! First of all you may want to visit this little song/activity https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XBJAh5SrtY with Jack Hartmann to get your brain in gear!

  1. Complete (or draw your own) caterpillar, in each section of its body fill in the missing number by counting in 25’s. You can decorate it afterwards if you like!
  2. Now, have a try at completing this worksheet using your knowledge of counting in 25’s. Just do your best, if you do need some help I will do my best to explain it!

TOP TIP: Look for patterns in the numbers!

 

English Activity…

Despite everything that is going on in the World today, there is always something to be grateful for. Sometimes it is important to sit back and think about these things! If you are grateful for something or somebody, tell them... it might just make them smile. I am very grateful to know and teach all of you!

 

Write 8 (or more) things that you are grateful for in life at the moment... when you think about it, there are so many things to be thankful for, even with all the things happening in the world right now! You could just do a list, but I have seen these cool paper chains where you write your things onto a strip of paper and then make them into chains! Below are some ideas.

 

Mrs Morgan’s list:

I am grateful for the NHS, and all the key workers that are helping us so much.

I am grateful that I am safe at home.

I am grateful to be part of the Walford family.

I am grateful for my wonderful Class 4 children who make me smile every day.

I am grateful that I have plenty of food and supplies.

I am grateful that I can stay in touch with people.

I am grateful that we are one day closer to being reunited!

I am grateful for the fresh air outside when I go for my daily walk.

 

Creative Afternoon

Today, the wonderful Mrs West has planned our music lesson!

  • Singing Activity

Using SingUp on YouTube, choose a song you would like to sing, for example, Be The Change.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gK-edW7TSOk

 

Sing along! You can adjust the speed of playback in the settings on YouTube to learn the lyrics at a slower speed.

 

  • Composition Activity

Create some musical rhythms of your own. You can draw them on paper and ask your family to clap what they see!

For example: Pick a topic such as food and drink. What do you like? Some examples could be:

Coca-Cola

Lemonade

Ice cream

Sweets

Draw these items onto a piece of paper each. Colouring if you wish. Clap the word you have drawn by clapping for each syllable in the word! Try clapping them in a row/mix up the order/with more than one person, say four, take a word each and clap it! Your very own piece of music.

___________________________________________________________

Last week, some children put up rainbows in their windows so that when people were on their daily walk, they could see spot as many as they could!

This week’s theme is sunshine. Using materials around your home, can you colour, paint or even make a collage of a picture with the theme sunshine?

Take a photo of your creation in the window and send it to me to make us all smile!

Maths Mission…

Today will continue to help you practise your Roman numerals!

  1. Complete the colour by numerals activity, you can colour it on Showbie by clicking the pen icon (and changing it to the correct colour). It doesn’t need to be perfect colouring, just do your best! 
  2. Now for some fun… play this game (it is compatible with tablets and computers). https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/550/Roman-Numerals-Guard-the-Garden

You need to read the roman numeral at the top, and then shoot the correct number with the cannon!

 

English Activity…

Setting Description

Here is a picture, of a deep, desolate forest. Imagine… you are walking alone in the woodland you can see. How do you feel? What do you hear? What do you see? Smell? Taste? What are you walking on? Can you hear the branches snap as you step on them? Is it soft walking on the mossy ground?

 

Write a setting description, remember to use similes, adverbs, adjectives and strong sentence openers. Maybe you could even use a fronted adverbial... but don’t forget your comma!

 

You can type it up on pages or notes and then attach it to Showbie using the plus symbol (or email it to me), or of course- write it and take a photo- Have fun!

 

Creative Afternoon

 

Todays activity is Science! Last week, you did an electricity hunt around your home to see what electrical appliances you used- and if they were battery or mains operated. Today, we are going to refresh our electrical safety! Watch this short video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIYVTUCpVP4 to recap some electrical safety rules. You may know more!

 

Your task… create your own electrical safety advice presentation to tell someone else how they can keep safe around electrical items. You could make it any way you choose, for example, a poster, a leaflet or even your own movie/video! Remember to share your presentations with me via Showbie or my email.

Monday 30th March

Good morning, Class 4! I hope you have all had a relaxing weekend, ready for another week of home learning- keep sending me pictures of your work, and some of you just having fun and learning new skills, it really makes me smile!

 

Wake Up, Shake Up

  • PE with Joe

Visit Joe Wicks’ YouTube channel for a daily PE lesson to get you moving, and feeling energised.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

Maths Mission…

In your maths folder on Showbie, or attached as a document, find a code breaker using your Roman Numerals knowledge… At the top are some hints, if you need a little refresher!

Once you have cracked the code, send me your answers! The second sheet is for you to then make your own code breaker message! 

 

English Activity…

Homonyms are words that sound the same or are spelled the same as another word but have a different meaning. For example, ‘no’ and ‘know’ are homonyms…

We often mis-spell these words and confuse the two, so todays mission is to practice! I have attached the first activity to your Showbie- English folder, and also as an attachment.

  1. Complete the quick activity, filling in the correct homonym to the missing word in each sentence.
  2. Make a little way to remember two homonyms you often get confused with. These will be different for all of you! For example, I used to find it tricky to remember the difference between their, they’re and there! I have attached some examples for you, it is okay to research ideas- borrowing an idea is okay if it also works for you!

 

 

Creative Afternoon

The Roman army were always dressed to impress! After your research last week, I’m sure you will have seen their amazing armour and shields.

Your task this afternoon is to design your own Roman shield. Although it is a Roman shield, you are not limited to Roman norms! Make it whatever colour, pattern and design you would have liked if you were in charge. If you have any spare cardboard/materials (cereal box, cardboard box), you could even make it!

Friday 27th March 2020

 

Good morning, Class 4!

I hope that you are all well and looking forward to completing some exciting home learning tasks on Fabulous Friday!

 

Wake Up, Shake Up

Follow this link to the BBC Supermovers website where you can practise your mental addition and subtraction whilst keeping fit: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks2-maths-mental-addition-&-subtraction/zj9pwty

PE with Joe

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

 

Your Maths task:

 

  • Create your own game of Times Table Snap- I have attached the cards that you could use, but I think it would be much more exciting to make your own!

-I would (but you can use anything that you have spare) cut and use pieces of paper to make the cards!

-Remember to make both question and answer cards, or the game will not work!

 

I would love to see some pictures of you having a game- have fun!

 

Your Literacy task today is to complete the attached reading comprehension called “Ahoy me hearties!” when finished you can send your answers to me via email or Showbie (photo or scan) and I can give you some feedback. You do not need to print/write out the questions, if you would like to write it you can just put number 1 and your answer and so on.

 

Creative Afternoon

We use electricity every day, sometimes even without realising!

  • Go on an electricity hunt!

Go around your home on an electricity hunt and write down as you go, a list of all the different things that use electricity. For example, the kettle or toaster. I bet there are more than you would expect! Do they all run on mains electricity (plugged into the wall), or do they use batteries?

 

Now it is Fabulous Friday, the day for our music lesson! Here are some activities Mrs West has planned for you to have a go at.

 

Listening – Listen to this piece of music by Sam Kelly and the Lost Boys. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2l64IFQKzQ

Can you identify the instruments you can hear? Can you spot any times when one or more instrument stops playing?

 

Activity - Now have a look at this version of the song to see if you were right. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFMS3RgBz9Q

 

Singing - Have a go at this warm up. Make sure you are pulling all the funny faces… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5ibRYDBFTw&fbclid=IwAR3Vjoh4UyyNuwfhcnDnnZ2FjC81_NFkHTb05N4wepJ_euHFtUfmP3IjS2Y

Here is a song called Just Like a Roman. Have a listen then have a go at singing the echo in the chorus,

 

Gonna tell you how to (Part 1) Eat like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Eat like a Roman,

(Part 1) Drink like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Drink like a Roman,

(Part 1) Dress like a Roman, (Part 2, echo)

Dress like a Roman, (Part 1) Think like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Think like a Roman,

(Part 1) Pray like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Pray like a Roman,

(Part 1) Build like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Build like a Roman,

(Part 1) Slay like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Slay like a Roman,

Party like a Roman.

 

Now have a go at the verses – the words are on the screen for you. You could challenge yourself by trying the sign language – start with the chorus then maybe try a few signs from the verses.

 

Please remember to upload/send your work to Showbie or alternatively, you can respond to this email. I would love to not only see the work you produce, but maybe also some pictures of you on your Electricity Hunt or completing the music activities! 

 

Drop Everything and READ!!

Use your Read Theory (https://readtheory.org/auth/login) or MyOn (https://www.myon.co.uk/login/index.html) login’s to continue reading every day!

Audible and Amazon are now offering free audio books to download too!

Thursday 26th March

 

Good morning, Class 4- I can’t believe it is Thursday already!

I hope that you are all well and looking forward to completing some exciting home learning tasks today.

 

Wake Up, Shake Up

Follow this link to the BBC Supermovers website where you can practise using inverted commas  whilst keeping fit: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks2-english-inverted-commas-with-mr-smith/z62rhbk

Visit Joe Wicks’ YouTube channel at 9am (or on catchup) for a daily PE lesson to get you moving, and feeling energised.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

 

Maths:

For Maths today, follow this link to a live lesson with Gareth Metcalfe… Please select the Year 3/4 video.

http://www.iseemaths.com/home-lessons/

You can find the lesson resources to download from the hyperlink underneath the video. 

 

English:

Your English task is a little different today! Please don’t feel you need to write/type your diary (you can if you would like to), you could record it as a Vlog (video recording) or do a photo diary- where you put photos with a small caption to explain… You could even do it from someone else’s perspective- I have done mine in character as my dog, hope it makes you giggle, I had fun writing it and have attached some photos to make you smile!

  • Your task is to write/make a diary entry, about yesterday (or a day recently).

I have attached my example, and put it in your English folder of Showbie.

 

Creative Afternoon

One of the most popular places to attend for Roman entertainment, was the colosseum. A beautiful example of Roman’s best architecture!

 

Below is a link to a website where you can go on a virtual tour of a colosseum- if you click the walking man, you can view the inside and click the helicopter to view from above.  https://www.airpano.com/360photo/Italy-Rome-Colosseum/ Explore the colosseum, I found it very interesting!

 

 Now… your mission today is to produce some artwork related to the colosseum. You could draw/sketch a detailed picture of a Roman colosseum, try and make it out of natural resources in your gardens, or if you are feeling very artistic, you could even try and create a model.

If you choose to do this outside, please make sure you are safe and following the social distancing rules.

 

Another little idea that I have seen, and love is to draw/paint/decorate a rainbow and put it in a window of your home. This means that when you are on your daily exercise, you can hunt for all the different rainbows and hopefully it makes you smile... I know people around me have been out 'rainbow spotting' with their children, and had great fun. 

 

I look forward to seeing the fantastic work you have for me today! Have a wonderful day.

Best wishes

Mrs Morgan

Creative Afternoon

Rich and poor Romans had very different ways of dressing!

Research what a rich and poor Roman person wore and then design your own outfits- 1 for a poor Roman, and 1 for a rich Roman (in-keeping with their style).

It is your choice as to how you present your designs- you could draw them, make a model, do it on the computer/a tablet!

 

Please remember to upload/send your work to Showbie or alternatively, you can respond to this email. Remember to keep reading too. Your My-On password will give you access to online books and Audible and Amazon books are also free at the moment.

Maths Task

Complete the attached task (rounding numbers to the nearest 100). Remember to look at the tens column to help you decide whether you need to round up or down.

Think about:

  • If the number is 5 or more, do you round up or down?
  • What about if the number is 4 or less?

I have also added the task to Showbie in your Maths folder.

 

English Task

Your English activity today will be helped by the Blue Planet live lesson you watched on Monday (but you will still be able to complete without watching it!)

Write an acrostic poem about our sea-creatures. Make sure that each word you use to start each line is the correct letter, and all of them relate to sea-life or looking after our sea. I have attached an example I have made to help you! 

I have attached a template on Showbie in your English folder, but you can complete this on paper and photograph, use a different app or simply email it to me.

 

Creative Afternoon

One of the most famous armies in the world was the Roman army.

Research the Roman army and why they were so important. Create a poster, short film, information leaflet or fact file to share what you find.

Some questions you may like to consider:

  • What did they wear and use to fight?
  • How many people were in the army?
  • How was the army organised?
  • What did the Roman army achieve?

Please remember to upload/send your work to Showbie or alternatively, you can respond to this email.

 

I look forward to seeing the amazing things you produce! Remember to keep reading too. You can access My-On using your account. Audible and Amazon books are also free at the moment!
