Daily Learning – Friday 15th May 2020

Mathematicians:

Have a go at today’s flashback and then watch the tutorial video about converting between the 12 hour and 24 hour clock.

If you fancy a further challenge, have a go at the challenge questions.

 

Authors:

Writers:

Yesterday you had a go a writing a plan for a newspaper article.  Today we would like you to write that newspaper article.  Think about how the final page will look as well.

If you fancy a challenge, think about what other articles might be seen on the front page, which then reference another page, just like a really tabloid newspaper.

Please note - the errors and weaker language on the newspaper are intentional as we are having a look at editing our writing on Monday!

 

Readers:

Have a read through the text about European Holidays and then try the questions

 

Enquiry:

Here is a quiz based on yesterday's learning! Some of it will have been in the PowerPoint, some of it you might have to do a little bit of research.

 Good luck.

As a challenge, you could create your own quiz based on your learning for this enquiry. You could challenge a parent or older sibling to complete it - or even me?! You could test my knowledge and see how much I know...

 

Life skills:

Here are the next 3 activities for you to try – you could do one, or try all three.

 

Computing:

Today we have added an extra activity in the form of Computing.

There are some fun games to play on this website. Why not have a go.

Daily Learning – Thursday 14th May 2020

Mathematicians:

Have a go at today’s flashback and then watch the tutorial video about how to convert between the 12 hour analogue and digital clock to help you solve today’s problems.

If you fancy a further challenge, have a go at the challenge questions.

Please note, the date on the start of the video is wrong, but it is the correct video! (sorry)

 

Authors:

Writers:

Yesterday you had a look at my newspaper report and worked out the plan based on it. Today, your challenge is to write your own plan, so that you can write the newspaper tomorrow.

If you are unsure how to plan your newspaper, I have included another plan based on a new newspaper report I will write.

You might want to think carefully about the photo you need to include and have a go at taking it so it's ready to use.

 

Readers:

Have a read through the text about cats and dogs and then try the questions

 

Enquiry:

Read through the information on the website below, and watch the video to find out a bit more information about climate zones.

Once you've done that - have a read through the PowerPoint and complete the activities that are below. If you haven't got a printer, don't worry - you can challenge yourself by drawing (or tracing - either through an image on the computer, or using an atlas) a world map. The same goes for the animals - why not draw them?

 

Life skills:

Here are the next 3 activities for you to try – you could do one, or try all three.

  

Useful Websites:

As Miss Silver was reading through her teaching magazine earlier, she stumbled across this page of really useful websites.

 

Lots of them look very interesting and there are a few different things you could try - why not learn to sing or go on a virtual trip to San Diego Zoo?!

 

We look forward to seeing lots of you on zoom today.  4SL at 1pm and 4CS at 1:30pm.

Mathematicians
Have a go at today's flashback.
 
We are starting a new unit of learning all about time this week. Watch through the video to help you answer today's questions about converting between seconds, minutes, hours and day.
If you fancy a challenge have a go a the challenge questions, the answers on the 2nd page if you would like to look at some example answers about how to use calculations to help prove your point.
 
Authors:
Writers:
Have a look through the PDF to understand the difference between direct and reported (indirect speech) then have a go at the worksheet. This is a handy skill to have when writing different genres, including newspapers that we will be looking at this week.
If you fancy a challenge, have a go at the 2nd part where you alter the paragraph.
 
Readers:
As 4CS are reading 'Billionaire Boy' by David Walliams, and 4SL are reading 'Fing' (this wasn't planned - he's just obviously a brilliant author!), we thought it would be interesting to find out a little bit more about the man himself... Read through the extract and answer the questions!
 
Enquiry:
Read through the information about Changing Nations and have a go at the activities.
 
Life Skills:
A huge life skill is adjusting to our surroundings. For example, you wouldn't scream and shout in a library - but it would be okay to do this at a theme park.
At the moment, we're not able to go outside as much as we'd like. This means adjusting to being indoors a lot more, which can be difficult.
Over the next few days, I will be giving you three options of activities you can do. They are all able to be done indoors, and a lot of them are probably things you haven't done before. It's great to try new things, and now is the perfect time!
We look forward to seeing which activities you choose (you could decide to do them all!), and hope to see photos and/or videos of you doing them!
 
Daily Learning - Monday 11th May 2020
Mathematicians
Have a go at today's flash back and then watch the tutorial video about how to use multiplication and division.  If you fancy a challenge, have a go at the challenge questions exploring multiplying by a 2 digit number.
 
Authors:
Writers:
Have a go at identifying inverted commas in action as we will be applying this skill later in the week.
Also, it would be great to continue your Lockdown Diaries.
 
Readers:
Last week we focused on rivers in the UK.
The reading comprehension is all about river around the world. Some you will recognise - like the River Nile, other river names are quite difficult - so ask an adult how to pronounce them if you are unsure.
Answer the questions based on the text.
 
Enquiry:
Read through the information about how London has changed over time.
We all know that cities change over time - new roads and buildings are built, as well as economic growth (new jobs) - these can cause people to move to a particular city.
You will notice that London's growth covers historic events and people that we have learnt about in Years 3 and 4.
You will find an activity that you will need to complete below
 
Life Skills:
Have a read through the information below linked to this activity.
Write down all the different ways you use water home.
How many litres do you think you use each time you have a shower, put a wash on, use the dishwasher.... etc?
How do you think you might be able to save water (and money!)in your house?
When we went to Wessex water, the lady said a good way to save water is by only having a 3 minute shower every day!
Can you step up to the challenge of saving water?
