Happy Tuesday Year 4!
I have my fingers crossed that the dry weather holds out for your Science lesson this afternoon! I think you are going to enjoy it :) If you aren't able to do it outside, then use the internet to research instead.
Have a great day
Spelling – tion endings.
Finally, choose at least three of today’s words and write sentences with them in. Can you write any sentences linked to deforestation?
Ordering amounts of money
Today, you will order amounts of money using the > more than and < less than signs.
You will need to know that 100p = £1
Ascending order – order amounts from smallest to biggest
Descending order – order amounts from biggest to smallest.
Finally, have a go at the discussion problems. There are only 2 and the answers are below. They are a little tricky so break the question down into smaller chunks to help you, only do a bit at a time. (Here’s a tip, convert the amounts of money so they’re all the same. Make sure amounts are all either in pounds or in pence)
Using the following movements, can you create your own relay race?
In a space in your house (or outside if you have a garden), make a circuit and decide how many of each jump or movement you need to do and where you will do each one. When you have finished, time yourself completing your circuit. How long did it take?
Challenge yourself to try it again – can you complete it faster?
Could you challenge a member of your family to complete your circuit? Don’t forget to time them too!
Science - Lesson 3
Last Science lesson, you explored vertebrates... animals with a backbone. You explored how vertebrates could be classified into 5 different animal types. Today, we will be investigating invertebrates. Invertebrates are animals that don't have a backbone. Some have soft bodies, like worms, slugs and jellyfish. Other invertebrates, like insects, spiders and crustaceans, have a hard outer casing called an exoskeleton. This protects their body a bit like a suit of armour. Vertebrates have a backbone inside their body.
Today we are going on an invertebrate hunt! Your task involves exploring microhabitats and looking for invertebrates. Have a look in your Garden if you have one, or go on a walk with an adult. Look carefully under logs, within plant beds, in the soil or grass to look for invertebrates. If you aren’t able to go outside at all, make some predictions about which invertebrates you think you would be able to find in your local area and use the internet to research and see If you were correct
Complete the Invertebrate Identification sheet to choose one of the invertebrates and draw a detailed diagram, name it, describe its habitat and its characteristics.
