Welcome to the Year 4 'Home Learning' page where you will find daily learning activities to access during the school closure. It is important that, if you are well enough, you continue with your learning while self-isolating in order to build on the super progress which has been made at school so far this year.
If you would like to get in touch with me (Miss McCullion) to show me some of your wonderful work, or to ask questions about the learning tasks that I have set, then you can email me using the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to help out and hear how you are getting on.
I'm missing you already!
Thank you to the parents for your continued support.
This week, we are continuing our English work on myths, firstly by completing our retellings of Romulus and Remus and then by creating and writing our very own myths.
Please read the guidance which explains what you need to do each day. Use you home learning book or paper to write your stories. Send them to me when they're complete - I'd love to read them!
Maths learning this week focuses on the properties of shapes, especially triangles and quadrilaterals. We will also learn about three different types of angles, what they are called and how to put them in order.
Each day there is one or more tasks to choose from to practise the necessary skills. Some days, there is a PowerPoint presentation or a poster to help you to understand the task that you will need to complete. You can choose to do one or more of the tasks for each day.
Some of the tasks have three activities to practise the one learning objective. It might be a *, ** or *** sheet. You can choose the one which you think will suit you best, or use the tasks like a chilli challenge. Some of the sheets have the answers at the bottom so you can mark your own work!
For Computing this week, please look at the sequences in the document above and check the algorithms as they need debugging. Can you correct them? Think about the way we used the LightBot app to check and change algorithms. This may help you.
You could also download the LightBot app to continue challenging yourself or perhaps make a Stop Motion video like we tried at school last week.
Above, there are two tasks for each day as we continue to focus on learning the times tables fluently. Children can choose to complete one or both of the tasks.
Please continue to use the online games resources for practising times tables, including TwinklGo. The instructions for accessing these are on our class page as usual.
MyMaths activities will also be set weekly as usual.
