Good morning Year 4 – This is our last week of home learning …hopefully!
Thank-you for your hard work last week . This week things are back to normal and zoom calls will be with Year 4 only. Below is the timetable for this week. Please continue to send in your work for the pieces indicated in the timetable with the camera symbol feel free to contact me if you have any problems or questions.
Answers for last Friday below:
Questions for today below, please watch this clip first:
This week are going to focus on the suffix ‘ous’. Today we are going to use the Graphic Guardian from our Word Power strategies. Please: look, say, cover, write and then check – correct any errors and then highlight, or underline, the part of the word which makes it hard to spell.
This week your task for Monday and Tuesday is to create a fractions board game. Below is details of the success criteria for this board game and below that is a template you could use (or feel free to create your own – maybe you could get inspiration from a Snakes and Ladders Board or a Monopoly Board). You need to include the ‘variety’ of fractions questions I have given you. I expect you to use these types of questions several times to fill your board.
Today start to create your design and on a separate piece of paper write out some possible questions – we will discuss the success criteria together during our live lesson.
Possible template for game:
Live Lesson (Maths and English 30 minutes on each) 11-12
- English we will be completing our Explanation texts – have all you work on your explanation text with you.
- Maths – talking through the success criteria for our fraction board games
Please go on your Reading Plus account for 30 minutes
Our Big Idea this term is Cracking Contraptions. Next week we will work with a different type of ‘tool activity everyday’ to perfect your construction skills. The following week you will use these new skills to build a robot. Your robot will use an electrical circuit to either light up their eyes or create a noise. You may also choose to use pulleys (to enable you robot to move its arms or legs).
Your task this week (by Friday) is to design your robot.
- An accurate neat design clearly labelled
- Includes all measurements
- Types of materials required
- How you intended to join the materials together
- Details what you robot will do (eyes light up – make a noise etc)
- Details of moving parts (how you hope to make this work)
