I hope you all had a nice Easter break, despite everything that is going on. Welcome back to another 2 days of home learning! These activities are for Thursday 16th April-Friday 17h April. The spellings will carry on into next week though!

Please spend some time practising your weekly spellings. There is an attached PowerPoint Presentation that goes through the spelling rule and gives you a chance to practise. The weekly spellings for this week (and for the week Monday 20th-Friday 24th April) are:

Maths

You should all now have a ‘Power Maths Practice book’. Each week I am going to set some pages for you to complete over the week. Please stick to these pages each week and don’t rush ahead! I have provided answers should you need them (the answers for Task 1 will be with you next week!). Because this week is only two days, I am only going to set you one maths task.

Task 1: Complete Numbers to 1,000 in the workbook (pages 6-8)

We have covered this in class already (although right at the start of Year 4) so it should be more revision for the children and therefore they should be able to access it fairly independently. I have provided a Maths Support PowerPoint which can be used for extra support/practise if you feel your child needs it. If there are any problems please email me.

 

Literacy
Task 1: Spellings

Practise your weekly spellings and use the PowerPoint to help you. Can you write a definition for each of your spelling words? How can you find out what a word means if you’re not sure? Some of them are a bit tricky! If you find it too tricky to write a definition, have a go at putting the words into sentences as this will help you understand what they mean. I have also given you a word search that you could use to help you. Don’t forget you will have the same spellings next week too so take your time learning them!

Task 2: Reading Comprehension

Complete the reading comprehension activity on Treasure House. There will be another reading comprehension to complete next week so please make sure you complete this one before Friday 17th April.

 

Other tasks

 

Purple Mash

There will be some activities for you to complete on Purple Mash. Log in and go to ‘2Dos’ and complete the tasks that have been set. I will be able to see how you got on once you’ve finished. These activities will still be available for you to carry on with next week. I have added a reading comprehension activity. Read the first chapter of Alien Hotel. Then there is a chapter 1 quiz to test your knowledge of the chapter, a describing aliens activity and a fun activity where you can put yourself into the role of Sally!

 

Physical Activity
Each morning at 9am, Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) is doing a live 30 minute P.E. Lesson on his YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1. Can you try and do this each morning? What a great way to start the day! I wonder if you can get the rest of your family involved too?

Make sure you try and get outside for a little bit each day. Go on a morning walk or do some exercises in your garden. Fresh air is really important!

 

Don’t forget to spend some time every day reading and practising your times tables. In case you haven’t seen, on our Owl Class page in the home learning section there is a tab that says ‘multiplication’. If you click on this tab it takes you to a page where children can practise their times tables. You can complete the Daily 10 everyday too https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10.

 

If you’d like to continue keeping up to date with the news, watch the daily and weekly news on Espresso (weekly news updated every Thursday). Newsround is also another good one to look at https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround

 

 

 

Miss Steyn’s Brainteaser of the week:

I have a little house in which I live all alone. My house has no doors or windows, and if I want to go out I must break through the wall. What am I?


If you think you know, email me the answer!

 

I am in the process of writing reports (a bit earlier than usual!). There is a section of the report that asks for comments from the children. Therefore, I have attached a word document which has three questions for your child. Could you ask your child to answer these questions and then send the document back to me (via email) so I can add their comments to their report. If this could be done ASAP, I’d really appreciate it.

Thank you!

 

I’d also like to say a BIG thank you for all the lovely emails and messages I’ve received from you. It really is making me smile J I’d loved seeing your work and I am so pleased you are all enjoying Purple Mash so much. Keep it up!
