Each day I will put daily activities on this page. I will mainly ask for activities to be completed in your green books and shared via Class Dojo or completed via Purple Mash. If you are unsure of any activities please message on Class Dojo and I will do all I can to help!
Monday 6th July 2020
Today's activities consist of:
Maths: There are two Maths activities on Purple Mash today based on converting between different measurements. Don't forget to also practise your times tables by using Rockstars or completing ratio tables in your green book. You could also listen to the songs that we learn in class to help us remember our times tables. I would like you to focus on the 11's this week!
Literacy: I would like you to practise the spellings found below. You can practise them in your green book. You then have until the 10th July to complete the spelling quiz on Purple Mash so only attempt the quiz when you are confident with the spellings so you get the highest score you can! I would also like you to read the reading comprehension text found below based on 'The story of the banana'.The document contains three sets of questions with varying difficulty (*** is most challenging) and three different difficulties of text. The answers for each set of questions are also on the document. I would spend today becoming familiar with the text before answering the questions on Wednesday.
Topic: For this week's Topic work, I would like you to complete the activitiy based on Oceans. There is a lesson available on bbc bitesize which can be found if click on the link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6scf82
Tuesday 7th July 2020
Today's activities are:
Maths: Have a look at the arithmetic paper I have attached below today's activity list. See if you can beat your score from last time! You can either download the paper and complete it on the computer or complete it in your green book. At the end of the paper, you will find the answers so you can mark your own papers. Discussing with someone in your house what you might need to work on and what went well would be really beneficial and is a great way to learn.
Literacy: I would like you to create a piece of writing in you green book based on the image found here https://www.pobble365.com/shipwreck/ The website also has sentence starters and story ideas if you scroll further down the page which you can use to give you some ideas. Be as creative and imaginative as you can!
Science: This week's Science looks at rocks, soils and fossils and can be found here https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6r6wnb . There are tasks and activities to complete on the webpage.
Wednesday 8th July
Today's activities are:
Maths: I would like you to take a look at the daily lesson on BBC Bitesize based on line graphs. You can find the lesson here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zqv8bqt and there are are videos and activities to go with the daily lesson. Also, practise times tables (11's in particular) as there will be a times table test Friday! You can practise times tables using the ratio tables we do in class or log into Times Tables Rock Stars.
Literacy: I would like you to complete a comprehension activity based on 'The story of the banana' that I uploaded on Monday. You have a choice of three sets of questions which are varying in difficulty indicated by the stars (*** is the most challenging!) It is entirely up to you which difficulty level you choose or you may want to attempt a less challenging one first to see how you get on and then push yourself further?
P.E and Outdoor Learning: Try to keep as active as possible and keep yourselves busy. If it is dry, why not time yourself doing an amount of star jumps/squats/plank and see if someone else can beat your time? You could have a go at completing some P.E sessions indoors with Joe Wicks which are on Youtube and can be found by clicking this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGqjVI6J5Ew .There are also games and dances on GoNoodle to keep you entertained and active which you can find here: https://www.gonoodle.com/
Thursday 9th July 2020
Today's activities are:
Maths: For today's Maths work, I would like you to have a look at the 'Mystery of the Pirate Captain' which gives you a series of code breaking, puzzles and sums to work out to solve a mystery.
Literacy: Two Literacy tasks for today. One will be on Purple Mash and will be focused on grammar. I really enjoyed reading your reports from last week, well done! For this week, I would like you to produce a leaflet of 'things that you enjoyed in Year 4' or 'top tips for having Miss Stringer as your teacher'. I will then send these leaflets onto the current Year 3's so they know what to expect in September. These can be handed in via Dojo.
Computing is normally on a Thursday afternoon alongside swimming. I have set a coding task on Purple Mash. Also, make sure you spend time being active, reading, and doing the things you enjoy.
Friday 10th July 2020
Today's activities are:
Maths: Complete the times table quizzes on Purple Mash to test yourselves on the 8 times tables we have focused on this week. Good luck!
Other lessons on a Friday in class normally include Music, Art and Golden Time.
For your Art work this week, I would like you to draw yourself doing your favourite activities.
For golden time, I have put a list of activities below that you might want to have a go at throughout the day. The list is similar to last week so you can either do an activity you didn’t do last week or pick the same activity and do it differently or try to improve it. Don't forget to send me the pictures of you doing these activities on Class Dojo! Hope you all have a lovely weekend and well done for all your hard work this week .
