Welcome back to home schooling! I hope you managed to have an enjoyable Easter.

 

I have attached some resources to support your child's English and maths learning this week.

 

Please continue with the next set of weekly spellings, science lesson and topic lesson (twinkl) Of course, you can refer to other child friendly websites too.

 

It is important that your child uses Matheletics and completes the tasks set and reads for a minimum of 20 minutes daily.

MATHS

This week, we will be continuing with DECIMAL NUMBERS and you should focus on the following with your child:

  • Formal written addition & subtraction (using decimals)

 

I have put questions on Mathletics to support this objective but please refer to the other websites (including Twinkl and Primary Resources) to find activities for your child to practice.

 

ENGLISH

Your child should have researched an animal of their choice in note form. It’s now time to start organising this information into paragraphs and write detailed sentences. Your child should try to use the following skills within their writing:

  • Expanded noun phrases
  • Fronted adverbials
  • Apostrophes for possession

Spellings – Week 2 (attached)

Reading – Every day for 20 minutes

 

SCIENCE

Continue with Electricity. Use Twinkl – Electricity Year 4 – Lesson 2

 

HISTORY/ART/D&T

Continue with the Ancient Egyptians. In your child’s own words, they should explain the mummification process. They could draw diagrams too. Perhaps, your child might like to make their own mummy!

WB 23.3.2020

Year 4

 

Maths

In maths this week, we will be introducing DECIMAL NUMBERS and you should focus on the following with your child:

  • Place value with decimal numbers (understanding the worth of each number)
  • Ordering decimals numbers up to 2 decimal places  (EG order the numbers from greatest to smallest: 7.36 8.36 8.46 7.37 8.45)
  • Estimating decimal numbers on number lines
  • Rounding decimals to the nearest whole number (2.86 = 3)

 

I have put questions on Matheletics to support these objectives but please refer to the other websites (including Twinkl and Primary Resources) to find activities for your child to practise.

 

 

English

In English, we will be beginning to look at non-chronological reports. I have attached a PowerPoint to help you. Your child should use this week to research an animal of their choice, putting the information you find into 4 sections (EG Appearance, Habitat, Diet & Characteristics). These only need to be written in note form, we are NOT writing the report this week.

Grammar for this week – apostrophes for possession

Ancient Egyptian Day

 

Year 4 had a wonderful day learning about the Ancient Egyptians. We had the opportunity to find out about their daily life, religion, culture and language. Without a doubt, the most exciting part of the day was carrying out the mummification process on a Pharaoh. Gruesome!

Welcome To Year 4

We hope you enjoy seeing our fantastic learning in year 4!
