Today you will be re-capping the information that you have gained about spiders - from the reading comprehensions at the beginning of this unit and from reading the story. Read Chapters 8 and 9, then you will write a poem ( a Kenning) about a spider.

 Whilst we were in school, we wrote a type of poem called a Kenning - remember?

You take pairs of words - one pair per line - which describe the subject of the poem. You can use metaphorical language as well as straightforward descriptions.

Remember to describe how they behave as well as what your subject looks like. Present your Kenning with a drawing/ diagram of the subject.

  •  Watch - spider spinning a web in slow motion to add to your ideas:

  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5iN0ZaoW7M

 

  •  add phrases that describe the actions of building a web e.g: 'wonderful-weaver'
  •  add phrases that describe what a spider does e.g: 'insect-trapper'

Here are some examples of Kennings - try doing yours without 'a' at the start of each line - as we did in class.

Today you will be reading chapter 10 of Charlotte's Web - 'An Explosion'. As the chapter title suggests, it gets quite dramatic!

Write a diary entry by Charlotte for the evening after the incident in the chapter. What happened (from her point of view)? What did she think? How did she feel?

 Aim for at least 3 paragraphs of good writing:

  • neat, joined writing,
  • Capital letters and full stops & commas, exclamation marks, question marks...
  • different sentence starters
  • varied sentence lengths
  • ambitious vocabulary
  • rule of 3 (adjectives)
  • similes/metaphors...

English - Wednesday 8th July

Today you will be reading chapter 11 of Charlotte's Web 

Write a news report about what happens when Charlotte puts her plan to save Wilbur into action and about what happens after that.

In the chapter they talk about a 'miracle' having happened and about Wilbur being special. Think about who Fern's mum thought was special.

Include what you think will happen to Wibur as a result.

Remember - you will need:

  • An attention grabbing headline!
  • A paragraph to introduce the story - a basic summary - what? where? when? who?
  • Story reported on in chronological order - 2 or more paragraphs incuding:
  • Eye-witness quotes
  • A statement from someone involved

English - Thursday 9th July

First - Can you think of any other short messages that Charlotte could weave into her web about Wilbur?

Today you will be reading chapter 12 (pg 86 - 91)- where the animals are trying to think of a new message to keep everyone thinking of Wilbur as special.

Answer the questions set for this chapter. Download below or copy into your exercise book and answer in there.

Please answer in full sentence answers - clearly explaining and using evidence from the text.

Today you will be writing (at least) 2 more Kennings! See Monday's work to remind yourself of the explanation of a Kenning and to see the examples.

You take pairs of words - one pair per line - which describe the subject of the poem. You can use metaphorical language as well as straightforward descriptions.

Remember to describe how they behave as well as what your subject looks like. Present your Kenning with a drawing/ diagram of the subject.

On Monday you created a Kenning for a spider. 

Today - create a Kenning for Wilbur the pig and for Fern.

Extra - create Kennings for other characters if you like, or about people you know or a character in a film or another book that you like

Maths - WB 6/7/20  - Geometry - Properties of Shape

Maths - Monday 6th July - Identify angles

Today's tasks revise all that you know about angles and mathematical language to identify and describe angles. You will use this information for reasoning about the angles.

Today you will be going over the story so far - charting the events which have taken place as well as the character's emotions. Those characters are Fern and Wilbur.

Re-read chapters 1 - 3. This should remind you of all of the details of the story so far.

Download the document listed below. You will see that it's a table for you to fill in. As usual you could print it and record your ideas onto the sheet or you could copy the headings into your exercise book and record the information in there.

Read chapter 4 (e book is above), thinking about Wilbur's feelings and the reasons for those feelings.

Write an explanation of what is happening to Wilbur and what he is thinking and how he is feeling - almost like a diary entry - if pigs could write diary entries!

Charlotte's Web (2006 film) - Wikipedia

English - Wednesday 1st July

Think about the introduction of the new character at the end of Chapter 4 and how that signifies a change on Wilbur’s feelings.

Read chapter 5 up to: ‘Watch me wrap up this fly.’

Think: Who does the voice belongs to and how Wilbur might be feeling as he falls asleep that evening? How would you feel if you were Wilbur? 

Think about how Wilbur might feel meeting Charlotte for the first time. How does it feel to meet someone new? What do you want to find out first? How do you become friends? What questions do you want to ask and what information about yourself do you want to share? 

Imagine you are Wilbur again - What questions might you have for Charlotte? As Charlotte is the first spider you have come across, your questions are bound to be many and varied! Make a list of all of your questions.

imagine that you are Charlotte. How is she able to decide that she likes Wilbur so quickly? Are you really able to make a judgment about someone else just by observing them? Make a note of the observations that they think Charlotte would make about Wilbur.

Read the rest of chapter 5

English - Thursday 2nd July

Maths - WB 29/6/20 

Well done! Year 4 are top doodlers again! Good job everyone - what a team effort!

Monday 29th June

Number 1 priority today is to complete the multiplication check on TT Rock-Stars (if you have not already done so). You need to do the 2 sound checks.

Download the database below and have a look. Data is another word for information - so a database is a big table with lots of information on it. The one you will download is called 'All about us statistics'. It is a list of people's names with information about them such as their eye colour, jumper colour, which pets they have etc.... You will be organising some of this information onto a Venn diagram - download from below.

You will be putting the names of the children onto the Venn diagram.

There is a circle for those children (on the database) who have pets and a circle for those children (on the database) who have a brother.

Those circles overlap so that the names of those children with both a pet and a brother can go into the parts which overlap.

Any children who have a pet but no brother must be in the pets circle but not in any part of the brothers circle.

Any children who have a brother but no pet must be in the brothers circle but not in any part of the pets circle.

Any children who have no pets and no brothers - their names go outside of both of the circles - around the edges.

We will continue our 'Home & Away' topic with a focus on a whole continent - Asia!

Do you remember where Asia is on a world map? Remember our world knowledge quizzes before lock-down? We used our world map a lot and you were all really good at identifying the continents. (What are the names of the other continents?)

Starter: List as many Asian countries as you can before looking at a map! I remember some of you being excellent at this!

Read through the power-points below - try the landmarks quiz on one of them - and create a poster or a leaflet all about Asia.

Think about sub-headings eg 'Where is Asia?'; 'What is it like in Asia?'; 'Famous Asia landmarks' ; 'How many different countries are in Asia?'; The weather in Asia'  etc...

Over the next few weeks we will be reading: Charlotte’s Web by E.B White. Some of you may have read it before?

Charlotte's Web eBook: White, E. B., Williams, Garth: Amazon.co.uk: Kindle  Store
It is a classic novel for children, which was first published in 1952. It is the story of Fern, a little girl who saves a pig on the family farm from being killed, and the pig’s friendship with a spider who lives alongside him in a barn with the other farm animals. 

When you start to read the book, remember that Fern DOES save the pig by page 3, so don't be alarmed!

Monday 22nd June:

We will begin the week with a reading comprehension about...spiders! I know that some of you know quite a lot about spiders already.

Choose the 1 star, 2 star or 3 star comprehension:

3 stars - most challenging

1 star - least challenging.

Choose the one that you think will really challenge you.

You could print the comprehension or you could copy the title into and answer the questions using full sentences in your exercise book.

Here is a clip of a spider spinning it's web in slow motion!:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5iN0ZaoW7M

 

Tuesday 23rd June:

Read pages 1, 2 and 3 of Charlotte's Web.

On these pages the main character - Fern - has some very strong feelings. How can we tell?

Inside the 'person outline' to download below (or you could draw your own person outline - in pencil - in your exercise book):

 - make notes of words/phrases in the story which describe her feelings;

 - list words/phrases which gave you a clue about her feelings eg verbs used

Think about the shades of meaning of these words (e.g. sad, unhappy, heartbroken, devastated, etc.) so that you begin to select words more carefully and accurately.

Answer this question:  How did the author showed Fern’s strong feelings?

Remember writers have different ways to show feelings:

  • through using verbs to show feelings eg stomped or shuffled or glided.....
  • through character's speech - including other words for said eg mumbled or laughed or screamed...
  • words emphasised with italics
  • through character's actions
  • with illustrations

 

Think about Mr Arable’s actions and feelings in the same way – Why is he so matter of fact in the beginning? How does he respond to Fern’s reaction to the situation? How does the author show us that Mr Arable had a change of heart? Why does he have a change of heart? What are Mr Arable’s reasons for ‘… doing away with it’? How might he express his reasons in words?

In your exercise book, write a persuasive note from Fern's point of view, highlighting how she feels about the pig and what could have happened to it and her reasons for these feelings. 

Name
 person outline.docxDownload

Wednesday 24th June:

Read to the end of chapter 1 - page 7.

Think about the change in Fern’s feelings when she begins to look after the baby pig, compared to how she was feeling in the previous section, and the reasons for the change in her feelings. 

Today you will write your own diary entry as Fern, expressing:

  • the strong emotions she has experienced during the morning,
  • her argument with her father and its resolution, and
  • her feelings now she has a pig to look after.

Remember that diary writing includes:

  • what the character was thinking as things happened
  • how the character was feeling as things happened
  • what happened in the character's own words

 

Thursday 25th June:

Read chapter 2 pages 8 - 12

In your exercise book, list the different types of sentence starters that the author has used in this chapter with examples under each heading:

  • noun/pronoun
  • fronted adverbial (starting with how or why or when)
  • direct speech etc...

Look at the list of extracts to download below & either print out or copy the sentences into your exercise book.

In class during the autumn and spring terms we often discussed main and subordinate clauses. This will refresh your memory! Have a look at the 'remember' section below for help. Underline the main clause in one colour and the subordinate clauses in another colour. Create a key at the side to identify the colour meanings.

Remember:

  • main and subordinate clauses are separated by commas (challenge - what else can they be separated by?).
  • The subordinate clause does not make sense on it's own - it's extra information.
  • The main clause does make sense on it's own - it's the main point of the sentence.

Friday 26th June:

Read chapter 3 - from page 13 and take notes about how the author describes what the farm looks like (so that you can draw it) and about the sounds and smells (so that you can annotate your drawing with notes about the setting). 

You will be drawing your vision of what the Arable’s farm might look like with notes on the drawing - like labels. These can be phrases or whole sentences as well as single words from the text.

See below for a power-point of farm images to help you

Estimating amounts

For your activitiy today, you will be using your rounding skills that we have worked on since September last year.  You might need to convert your amounts of money first to make it easier to round up or down.  Remember to use a number line to help you and the rhyme we made up as a class.  

if the number is 1 2 3 4 round down to the number before

if it is 5 6 7 8 9 go up to the next number on the number line. 

Think about if you are round up to the next  pound it is rounding to the nearest 100, the next 10 pound is the next 1000. and the next 10p is the next 10 - these are all skills that we have practised this year, you are now using these skills in a real life context.

Science - Week Beginning 8th June 2020

This week we will be learning about how plants reproduce. Think about plants - what do new plants grow from?

That's right - from seeds!

Plants grow from seeds. They also create more seeds, so that more plants can grow from each new plant.

Life Cycle Bean Plant | LoveToKnowPlants need to make sure that their seeds will be able to grow, so they need their seeds to be dispersed - spread out - away from the parent plant.

Look through the power-point below to learn all about seed dispersal - the different ways that different plants spread out (disperse) their seeds.

Look at the images of different plants and ask yourself the questions listed to decide how that plant disperses it's seeds.

Fill in the table - record the different seeds and how you think they're dispersed.

Homework:

The expectation in Year 4 is that the children...

  • Practise their weekly spelling list and the Year 3/4 Statutory spelling list regularly.
  • Practise their times tables regularly.
  • Read every day and record this in their Reading Records.
  • Complete one piece of homework a week, spending a minimum of 20 minutes concentrated time. 

One piece of homework will be given to the children on a Friday and expected to be handed in the following Thursday.  If it is not handed in on Thursday, then they will have one day's grace and it will be due the following day.  If it is not submitted that day, children will be required to complete the missing homework during their break or lunch time.

Homework rotates between  topic-related pieces of writing / research, a times tables activity, a spelling activities, and maths activities.  The children will have weekly spellings which they would benefit from working on at home.  Some longer pieces of homework may also be given, which is good practice for the children to manage their time and ensure good quality work is handed in.  House points are given!

Homework Tasks aim to:

  • · enable pupils to make maximum progress in their academic development;
  • · help pupils develop as independent learners;
  • · promote a dialogue between home and school in supporting each child‛s learning;
  • · enable the curriculum to be covered in sufficient depth and breadth;
  • · provide educational experiences in addition to those available in school;
  • · practice skills, consolidate and reinforce learning taught in school;
  • · help children develop good work habits for the future.

 

 

Values:

 

January - Respect - respect for self, environment and others

February - Resilience - determination

March - Empathy - compassion

April - Reflection - engagement in activities
