Happy sunny Tuesday Year 4!
I hope you are all well and you enjoyed the activities yesterday.
It was lovely to hear from some of you yesterday through the comments box. Please keep in touch and let me know how you get on today or just say hello!
Read the Powerpoint for a reminder about Inverted Commas (or speech marks). Remember that these wrap around the words that are spoken.
Can you remember the other important punctuation in speech?
- New speaker, new line
- Starts with a capital letter
- Speaker and verb
- Comma before the inverted comma
- Punctuation within the inverted commas
- eg. Miss Bolchover stated, "Try your best when working at home."
After you have read through the Introduction Powerpoint, complete the Speech activity. You need to use inverted commas to write out each speech bubble into a speech sentence.
Today we will be learning about hundredths on a place value grid.
How many hundredths are in one whole? ... 100!
How many hundredths are in one tenth? ... 10!
Read through the interactive Powerpoint to introduce and practice the learning. Then, apply your knowledge to the hundredths activity sheet.
Read the short text and answer the questions about it. Remember to use clues (evidence) from the text to support your answers and not just to guess!
Read the instructions for the Boat shape investigation! Can you create a boat to help the Romans?
When you have completed your boat, it is time to test it out! You will need a bucket/sink/bath full of water; something move the boat across the water (a straw that you could blow through or a fan/hairdryer with adult supervision only - remember that it is extremely dangerous to use electrical items near water); and a watch to measure the time (you could use a timer on a phone/tablet too).
Remember to record and evaluate your results!
It would be great to see some of the boats that you create. Ask your adult if they could take a picture and share it with @broomwoodschool
I have wanted to read Wonder by R J Palacio for a long time now. It has fantastic reviews and I have heard that it's a wonderful and thoughtful story. I have selected it as our new class book and have found a link to it being read on the Internet.
Read the Blurb below to learn a little bit more about the book and then follow the You Tube link to listen to the book. Please listen to the first 10 minutes today.
