Maths – Writing decimals via BBC Bitesize Daily Learning (https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zfgm6v4)

RE – Special Roles and Responsibilities:

Task One – After Jesus’ ascension to Heaven, the apostles had the job to spread the Good News. Jesus was born and lived around the Middle East and because there wasn’t any TV, Radio and Internet 2000 years ago, news didn’t travel very fast. By the time of his death, most people still didn’t know about Jesus and his teachings so this job fell upon his disciples. It was their job to tell the world.

They did this by preaching to people, meeting with important people, telling stories and writing letters.

Read this letter from St Paul to the Corinthian’s and highlight all the key messages that he is trying to teach them.

Task Two: Nowadays we wouldn’t spread the Good News via a letter, we would use the internet as it’s much quicker and can be accessed by a lot of people. Imagine it is your job to tell people the Good News (all about Jesus and his teachings) – what would you say? You can use any modern format you like: a blog post, a vlog, a meme or a short ‘TikTok’ style video.

English- Writing a Short Story. The setting. Today I would like you to begin to describe the setting for your sports story. First, think of your location. Close your eyes and imagine you are there – what can you hear? See? Smell? Taste? Feel?

Fill the page with your ideas (pictures and words). The more the better!

Maths – Tenths and hundredths via BBC Bitesize Daily Learning. (https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zb98wty)

RE – Sharing in the life of Christ:

Task 1: Jesus often spoke about forming a community and sharing a common life with those who followed him. As part of this, Jesus used 7 ‘I am’ statements. Use the Bible References and look up the passages to see the different things that described himself as. Draw a symbol for each one.

Task 2:  What does the Bible teach us about racism?

Accepting people who are different to you, is a key message throughout the Bible. At the very beginning of the Bible, it says 'So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. - Genesis 1:27

All of humankind are created in God's image and should have the same respect because of this. We are all equal in God's eyes. Jesus taught tolerance and acceptance through his teachings - 

Read the story of the Good Samaritan - how do you think this is relevant to a stance against racism? 

Listen to the hymn 'When I needed a neighbour' - https://www.worshipworkshop.org.uk/projector?id=1633&tracktype=full - What does this teach us?

Why do you think the locations differ?

Why would London not be a good location for the Winter Olympic Games?

Why are some countries able to host both the Winter and Summer Olympic Games?

PE: Yoga – Yoga isn’t just about stretches and poses. It’s about understanding your body. Athletes from all different sports (e.g. footballer Ryan Giggs, basketballer LeBron James, tennis player Maria Sharapova, runner Paula Radcliffe and even the New Zealand All Blacks Rugby Team) practise yoga as it helps them to get the most from their bodies.

Today the focus is going to be all about breathing and mindfulness. Watch the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYQy8-7Ut1E and learn how to settle your mind in preparation for stressful sporting events like the start of a race, a penalty shoot out or when you’re teeing off.

Class Story: https://stories.audible.com/pdp/1789461480?ref=adbl_ent_anon_sc_pdp_pc_0  Listen to Chapter 10 of Kane: Ultimate Football Heroes

Guided reading:

1* - Read page 3 of 'A tale of two feathers' and answer the comprehension questions (under Phonics tab). 

2* and 3* - Children in Japan need to be prepared for when an earthquake strikes. Here is a website which gives some information for children about how to look after yourself during an earthquake (https://www.weatherwizkids.com/weather-safety-earthquake.htm) - it's not very interesting though! Can you make a more colourful, bright and interesting resource for British children visiting Japan. Remember, you don't want to scare them so keep it light-hearted and friendly.

English- Writing a Short Story. Read the following extract to identify what makes it boring. The then up-level it by making changes to the passage (There are 3 different versions depending on your level). 

Maths – Friday Challenge!

Chocolate Crispy Cakes – I have a recipe for 10 crispy cakes but there are 30 children in our class. If I wanted to make you all a cake, how much of each ingredient would I need? What if I wanted to only make 5 for my family?

If you are able to, you could then carefully measure out the ingredients to create either this or another recipe of your choosing. Don’t forget to send me photographs of what you have made.

Tokyo Olympics: Time is different depending on where you are in the world. If it is daytime in the UK, then it is night-time in Australia. How do you think this impacts on the Olympics? Think about both the athletes and the people watching at home. Learn all about how time zones work by reading the slides then use the information to calculate the difference between the time in the host cities and the time in the UK (London).

PSHE – What is 'Black Lives Matter'?

In the media and across the internet recently, you may have seen the phrase 'Black Lives Matter' but what is it all about? Read the article on the Newsround website and watch the videos to find out more. (https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/52813673)

Unfortunately, racism is still a problem in both the USA and the UK. Treating someone differently because of the colour of their skin is not OK. There are different ways to voice your opinion about injustice - some people write letters, some people protest peacefully, some participated in 'Black Out Tuesday', some write music or share their stories and some for a few people the protesting is not peaceful and the protests turn to rioting. 

I want you to think about a form of communication which will be positive and peaceful but will have an impact - what do you think would help to promote an anti-racism message to people of your generation?

Choose one format and create something which will help explain this message to others - try and include messages and teachings from the Bible to support your own message. 

 

Ideas could include: a story, a song, a video, posters, an open letter (meaning a letter addressed to all children rather than one person), sharing your own experiences of racism, something else?

Crime and Punishment: Dick Turpin committed a crime and his punishment was death by hanging. This is a form of capital punishment. Capital Punishment means taking someone’s life as a punishment for their crime.

On August 2 2018, Pope Francis made a change to the Catechism (the message) of the Catholic Church to state that, ‘The death penalty is always inadmissible (not allowed).’ The Catholic Church promotes hope for rehabilitation (becoming a good person again) and forgiveness. In the eyes of God, every life is sacred. 

Capital Punishment was abolished in Britain in 1969 but it is still common practice in other countries. Attached is map of countries which have recently carried out Capital Punishment.

Write an argument for what you believe about the use of Capital Punishment and explain why.

Computing: You have learned quite a few different skills in Scratch now so today I would like you to make a short animation. https://scratch.mit.edu/

In this animation, I would like you to have one change of background, two sprites, movement of the sprites and them making a sound/speaking to each other using speech bubbles.

Music: Today we’re thinking about using our voices as an instrument. Draw a wiggly line on a piece of paper.

Follow the line with your voice – make it go higher when the line goes up and lower as the line goes down.

French: Revision of the numbers to twenty. Watch and join in with the song to recap the numbers to 20 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhj9SqrIZqI (You will need the pronunciations for next week) and then complete the activity sheets to match the number to the correct French word.

"We're gonna make him wanna forget her ever heard about the 57 dogs that ran away from his mommy's puppy mill!"

What do you think they will do? Make sure you've listened to today's chapters carefully to help you with this. 

English- Narrative poetry: Watch this animation of the Highwayman poem then retell the story in your own words:

Maths – Make an Obstacle Course. Use your positional language to describe your movement around it (over, under, left, right, 90degree turn etc.) and time how long it takes you to complete it. Challenge someone else in your house to see if they can complete it quicker. Create a table to show the results (if there is only you able to do the course, do it three times and record your times).

Crime and Punishment: Task 1: We’re going to start looking at how crime and punishment has changed through time – We’re going to start with punishments in the Roman times. Use the flow chart to see what the punishment would be for the different crimes on the scenario cards. Does this seem fair to you? Why?

Task 2: Now we’re going to see how crime and punishment changed in the Anglo Saxon times.

We’re going to look again at some case studies. This time a punishment for Anglo Saxon times and a punishment for Modern Britain times has been given to you. You are the jury – which do you think is the most appropriate punishment? Why?

PSHE – In Roman and Anglo-Saxon times, rich nobles could sometimes let their slaves take their punishment on their behalf. Do you think this is fair?

Recently, some teenagers have been accused of breaking the lockdown rules by sneaking out of the house to meet with their friends. This puts other people’s lives at risk as it increases the spread of the virus. Some people say that their parents should be fined to prevent them doing it again. Is this fair? Would this work? What would you say a suitable punishment should be?

RE - Pentecost: Task 1 - Read the story of Pentecost (as told by lego characters).  http://www.thebricktestament.com/acts_of_the_apostles/instant_fluency/ac02_01-03.html The crowd who gathered came from lots of different places and spoke lots of different languages:

“Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome  (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs” – Acts 2 2:9-11

Look at the map showing where each of them came from.

Why do you think that the gift of languages was so important to the disciples?

VE day: Many countries were a part of World War II. Some were Allies, some were Axis, some were Axis powered (meaning they had been conquered by the Axis countries) and some were neutral (not on either side).

Happy Easter Year 4!

 

We've had a change to our home learning and your tasks will now be added to  your Seesaw accounts.

1. Please either go to: https://web.seesaw.me/ on a computer or install the Seesaw Class App on iOS or Android device.

2. Tap "I'm a student"

3. Type in your student code to access your Seesaw account

4. Keep this code safe, this is like a password!

 

You can complete your tasks online/on the app so there's no need to print anything (unless you can and want to)

Instead, you can send me work in more creative ways - annotated pictures, videos, voice recordings, PowerPoints etc!!

 

I've added a few tasks for you to get used to using the app over the Easter Break. Your daily home learning tasks are ready to be released next Monday (20th April). This is the work you will need to complete daily to keep on top of your learning. I'll be marking it and providing feedback as I would normally do in school. 


You will need to also log in to your Bug Club app daily. There will be home learning tasks to complete (I'll direct you to these on Seesaw) but you should also be reading/responding to the Bug tasks daily too. I'll be marking your responses and assess/feedback on these. If you are answering the questions confidently and accurately then you can still move your reading band. 

 

You can also message me to tell me how you are all doing and how you are keeping busy. I'd love to hear from you all!

 

Hopefully see you soon.

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all safe and well.

 

Please look out for your Bug club login details arriving by Parent Mail Tuesday 31st!

You can access lots of books, spelling & grammar games and science too!!

 

If you don't receive a text by the end of the day, e-mail me and I'll send you your login information.

Tasks

English (Reading):

 https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/ks2-rainforest-story-ebook-t2-or-556 (UKTWINKLHELPS)

  • Read pages 8-9 (screenshots in resources). The diary entry mentions that the Amazon stretches into 9 countries in South America: Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana.

This week you are going to practise your skills reading non-fiction texts and retrieving key information (Domain B).

To do this, I would like you to use the internet to research one of the countries to find out key information about them. You can use this information to create a travel guide for that country.

Possible things to include:

Where is it? (Maybe include a map)

How long would it take to fly there from England?

Where are the major tourist destinations?

What activities can you do there?

What language do they speak? (Maybe include some useful phrases)

What is the currency?

What are the key landmarks?

Pictures of what it looks like.

And most importantly … Why should I visit?

NOTE: I’ve included some information about Brazil in the resources section in case you aren’t able to research on the internet.

  • Then read up to page 17 (screenshots in resources).

 

English (Writing):  Last week, we looked at existing recipes and their features. This week I would like you to create your own.

  • Have a look at the ingredients available to you to plan 4 different meals. Draw designs and label them with your choice of ingredients. Be creative with your combinations of flavours and ingredients:
    • Garlic and chocolate?
    • Ham and strawberry?
    • Cheese and jam?
  • Write an introduction for your creation. Give it a really exciting name and use lots of description (adjectives, similes, exaggeration, expanded noun phrases) to make it sound as enticing as possible.
  • Think about an equipment list and an ingredients list for your creation. Make sure you include the quantities
  • Write a set of instructions which include adverbs (some fronted with a comma if you can) and imperative verbs. Remember to write the instructions in chronological order.  
  • If possible, have a go at following your own recipe to make your creation. Then eat it! Write an evaluation of your product to say what worked, what didn’t and what you would change next time. If you can’t make your meal, you can still evaluate your final design using your imagination!
  • Coming Soon - Adverbials games via Bug Club - https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0&l=0 (New log in details should be sent out shortly.)

  • Lesson 6: Divide 2 digits by 10
  • Lesson 7: Hundredths
  • Lesson 8: Hundredths as decimals
  • Lesson 9: Hundredths on a place value grid
  • Lesson 10: Divide 1 or 2 digits by 100.

For extra challenge play this comparing decimals game:

Science – States of Matter

  • Science experiment time!

Find 3 small (similar sized) plastic objects (we used toy jungle animals) and put them in 3 similar containers which will fit in your freezer and add water. Leave them to freeze overnight.

 

Remove one object at a time and time how long it takes to rescue your object from the ice.

For each different object try a different rescue method.

Write up the results of your experiment.

Which was the most effective? Why?

Challenge: Use the following scientific vocabulary in your explanation.

Solid                      Liquid                    Melting                Freezing               Particles               Ice

Water                   Heating                Cooling                 State                     Matter                  Reversible

Geography

  • Think about some of your favourite foods. Where in the world do they come from? Label a world map (available under resources) or create a table to show where different foods originate.
  • Look at the map of South America and answer the questions about this (under resources).
  • Read the Wikipedia page about South American cuisine: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_American_cuisine

Match the food product to the physical (natural) feature where it can be found:

King Crab

 

Andes

Llama

Tropical forests

Mango

Pacific Ocean

 

RE – Holy Week

  • Put the events of Holy Week in order:
    • Mary Magdalene found the tomb empty.
    • Jesus died on the cross.
    • Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane.
    • Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey.
    • A crown of thorns was placed on Jesus head and he was made to carry his cross.
    • Judas agreed to betray Jesus.
    • Jesus’ body was laid in a tomb.
    • Jesus and his disciples at the last supper together.
    • Jesus was arrested and was sentenced to death by Pontius Pilate.

The Beginners Bible video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PSgoPdKQFQ may help you.

  •  Read the Bible passages about the trial and crucifixion of Jesus: (If you do not have access to a Bible at home then you can find the scriptures online at www.biblegateway.com
    • Matthew 26:57-68
    • Luke 23:1-12
    • Matthew 27:11-26

Imagine that they are one of the soldiers who watched the crucifixion of Jesus. Write an account of the story from your perspective and include some of the reactions of the crowd, the Mother of Jesus and his disciples and friends.  

 

Art

  • Following on from our art last week looking at the at the work of Giuseppe Arcimboldo, this week we are going to focus more closely on sketching individual fruits.

I would like to choose one particular piece of fruit (or vegetable) to sketch and I would like you to focus on shading. Think about where the light is shining from to identify which part of the fruit/vegetable would be lighter and which would be darker.

You can use this video as a guide if you like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zogvikq01ZA

Remembrance Poetry

 

In honour of the fallen soldiers, we explored remembrance poetry. We then used this inspiration to create our own poems. 

Maps

 

As part of our 'Britain from the Air' topic, we have been learning how to use OS maps. We identified the different symbols and were able to use these to explain what we could find in our local area.

We even managed to find St Anne's School and Church!

In Year 4 we recycle!

 

We are very excited about the new recycling bins dropped off to us by the school councillors today. We can't wait to start using them!

Oh No We Didn't!

 

We loved celebrating our fantastic attendance in Year 4 with a trip to the panto. Watching 'Beauty and the Beast' at Bedworth Civic Hall was a great reward - even if we did get soaking wet!

Shakespeare Birth Place Trust

 

I couldn't be more proud of Year 4 today after a fantastic visit to Stratford-Upon-Avon. Everyone, from the other teaching staff, to the staff from the Birthplace Trust and even members of the public, commented on the enthusiasm, professionalism and manners of the children as they lead tours around the town. We all had a fantastic day! 

We are geographers!

 

Today we created some fortune tellers which helped us to learn the European capital cities. They were very tricky to learn (just ask our parents!) but we did a good job.
