Tuesday 21st April

Happy Tuesday Year 4!

 

Good morning and I hope you all slept well.

 

Today, I have a fact of the day for you...

Did you know that the "sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick" is believed to be the toughest tongue twister in the English language? Go on... have a go... can you say it? How many times? 

 

I only managed two full times (very slowly!) and my third 'sick' turned into 'shick'!!!

 

Have a great day 

 

 

 

 

Literacy

 

This week we will be exploring Persuasive Arguments and Writing.

This morning, Read through the Persuasive Writing Introduction and Activity. Learn about the different features of Persuasive Writing and then try and spot them in the Persuasive text!

Use the Persuasive Text Features document to support you.

When prompted, decide your opinion on the statement – Should all children be allowed pets and create two reasons to support your point of view. Share them with a family member. Do they agree? Why/why/not?

Maths

 

Today, we will be learning about halves and quarters.

Use the video to help you if needed. https://player.vimeo.com/video/405804448?dnt=1&app_id=122963

 

On the questions with the 100 grid square (number 2 and 3) it asks you to shade in the image. You don’t need to do this but if you choose to draw it remember, its 10 across and 10 up so use a ruler to mark off each cm.

 

Remember, quarters mean that a shape or number is split into 4 equal parts. Can you create a dance to help you count in 25s? Chant 0, 25, 50, 75, 100 and do an action for each number... You could touch your toes, bend one leg, wiggle, hold your arms out and jump! 

Can you use the actions to help you to count backwards in 25s?

Have a Kid’s bop party in your living room! I hope this makes you feel good…

Get movin' with the KIDZ BOP Kids to "Good Feeling"! Then, show us how YOU stay active by posting a video with the hashtag, #MoveItMarch. 🎵 #KIDZBOP38: 🎵 Ama...

Geography - Lesson 2

 

 

Where are rainforests found? (between the tropic of cancer and tropic of capricorn)

Why are rainforests formed here? (The weather is very hot and wet)

 

Today, we are going to be exploring the human and physical features of a rainforest. Can you remember what human features are? And what physical features are?

  • Read through the Human and physical features presentation to remind yourself.
  • Look at the Rainforest Photos. These are pictures from the Amazon Rainforest which is the largest rainforest on Earth. Which country is it in? Which continent is it in? (Use google maps to identify it). Can you sort the features on the photos into whether they are human or physical features?
  • Research the Amazon Rainforest. Can you add any more human or physical features to your list?

Use the following websites to help you:

What is a temperate climate? Temperate climates are generally defined as environments with moderate rainfall spread across the year or portion of the year with sporadic drought, mild to warm summers and cool to cold winters. We live in a temperate climate.

 

What physical and human features might you find in a temperate woodland or forest?

 

Use the internet to research and create a list of features – why not research a local forest such as Delamere Forest?

Alternatively, if you live close to Broomwood Woods or another woodland area, could you and your grown ups make this part of your daily walk? If so, don’t forget to take some paper and a pencil with you so you can note down all of the physical and human features you see!

 

What similarities were there between the human and physical features of the rainforest and temperate forest or woodland?

What differences were there?
