Week 2 - 30.03.20
Hello Year 4, Mrs Prior here.
I hope that you and all your families are keeping well and that you managed to get out in the lovely sunshine last week. As I took my daily exercise, I enjoyed spotting rainbows in people's windows around the village and even saw one that said, "Hello Year 4," which made me think of all of you and put a smile on my face.
I wonder if you are using the time to learn a new skill or improve one you had already started. I hope you're practicing your times tables and reading every day and that you managed to do some of the activities set by Mr Hilson last week. I have spoken to him and he is fine. He sends his best wishes. Both of us are sure that you will be behaving fantastically for your parents during this tricky time; remember to be as helpful as possible!!
This week's work follows a similar pattern to last week's:
Spelling - all tricky words this week accidental(ly), early, knowledge, purpose, actual(ly), earth, learn, quarter
Day 1 - LCWC
Day 2 - definitions
Day 3 - put in a sentence
Reading comprehension - a text about Spring and 3 levels of questions (answers provided)
SPAG - fronted adverbials - 4 sheets for everyone, each with a different activity
Creative - some art following on from Monet, with some poetry to read and write
Maths - daily calculations
daily activity based on time
Make sure you do some fitness activities too. I've been joining in with Joe Wicks's daily workout and also doing some Let's Dance - I hope to come back to school much fitter!
For the next two weeks, each teacher will be uploading work for the week on a Monday morning (this may continue like this after Easter but, as you know, at the moment we do not know). We also understand that each child has different resources at home and that a lot of parents are still busy working themselves.
Here is an outline of work and activities that we are recommending:
- Daily Calculations (for the five days)
- Practical maths activities
- Worksheets (Please do not pick the HOT sheets if your children may struggle, these are challenge questions and are not intended for all children)
- Times table rock stars
- Daily reading
- Spelling practise - do the activities below over 3 days using the spellings for the week
1) Look, cover, write, check
2) Find each word in a dictionary and write the definition
3) Write each word in a sentence
- Reading comprehension activity
- Writing task for the week
- Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation (SPAG)
- This will be a foundation subject activity each week, such as, DT, art, science, history or geography.
- Joe Wicks (the body coach) live PE lessons every day at 9am on his YouTube channel
- Cosmic Kids Yoga (YouTube)
- GoNoodle Dances (GoNoodle website or some are available on YouTube)
- Exercise size challenge: how many star jumps, burpees, push ups and jumping lunges can you do in 1 minute? (1 minute for each)
- Purple mash will also be available to children. Our recent focuses have been learning to touch type and spreadsheets but there are plenty of English activities (e.g. animate a book for the water cycle) and the children should check their ‘To Dos’.
Museums and Zoos are also offering virtual tours and theatre groups are uploading plays online, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
