Class 4's New Learning Adventure

 

Picture 1

You will all be learning in a different ways so don’t panic! Just remember to:

  • Always try your best. Keep that positive attitude for learning while you are away from the classroom.
  • Be creative where you can, particularly if you are unable to access the daily work set. Invent your own. 
  • Try to be independent in your learning as much as you can.
  • Be the teacher and teach your family members and carers all those wonderful things we have been exploring since September. You are the expert!
  • Always present your work so that you are proud of your achievements (use a pencil for writing and maths).
  • Always give yourself some house points at the end of your work ;-)
  • Take regular breaks, gets loads of fresh air when possible and drink lots of water!
  • Talk to the adults around you if you are feeling worried or anxious about anything!
  • Email Mrs Robinson or Mrs Billing if you have any question, suggestions or just need a chat! 
  • Have fun!

L.I: I answer questions related to what I have just read 

Bombs & Blackberries by Julia Donaldson

I have saved a copy of scene 1 and 2 in the star icon next to our class gallery I have also recorded me reading the story like an audio book. It was great fun! You should try it too!

Task: Either read Scene 2 independently or follow while I read it you.

  • Why is the scene entitled ‘The Vackies’?
  • Why are the children waiting in the village hall? How do you think they might be feeling?

Maths (1 hour)

Warm Up 

Missing numbers

72 =    ___       x    ___               Which pairs of numbers could be written in the boxes?

Making links Eggs are bought in boxes of 12. I need 140 eggs; how many boxes will I need to buy?

 
 
L.I: To be able to solve word problems involving duration of time and conversion.
Textbook pages: 277 – 278 (purple book)   

 

Let’s recap on the key facts learnt last week:

24 hours = 1 day

60 minutes = 1 hour

1 minute = 60 second

 1 week = 7 days.

 

In Focus task

What do we know? What is the problem asking us to do? What should we do first, second, third, etc.

Let's Learn

First, we should find out how long Amira spent doing things –

25 minutes + 1 hour 20 minutes = 1 hour 45 minutes.

 

What time did Amira leave the house? (4:45 p.m.)

How will we calculate when she started her homework? We need to count back 1 hour 45 minutes from 4:45 p.m.

 

Let's Learn.

Point out to pupils that they cannot do this: 4:45 p.m. – 1 h 45 min = 3:00 p.m. as this is mathematically incorrect. Follow the way it is represented on the timeline as shown in Let's Learn.

Guided Practice You are now solving word problems involving duration of time. Before you begin, look at each question and think about how to approach the problems.

 

Workbook: Workbook pages: 194 – 19 OR if you fancy a break from the workbook then have a go at the pizza problems attached and practice your time skills.

French: (30 mins)

Mrs Billing has sent you all a username and password for a new French program ‘Dulingo’ on an email. It looks like fun! If you have any problems then please email her: LBilling@chevening.kent.sch.uk and she will help you with any problems or questions.

 

Computing (15 minutes)

 

Well done to all those that sent someone in the class an email. I bet it brightened their day! Have you heard back from them? Why don’t you email a group of friends today? Can you send 4 people an email at the same time? What will your subject be?

 

Sketch Book (as long as you like!)

Why don’t you choose to sketch something or someone in your house? Put some relaxing music on and enjoy some quiet time! 

Friday 27th March 2020

 

There's lots to do here today. Don't worry if you don't finish everything. You may like to do some of the activities slowly over the weekend to fill some time! 

 

Today’s 40 Acts Lent Challenge: Say thank you to someone in your family.  

Good morning! Thank you so much for all your wonderful emails you sent yesterday.

 

Daily Mile: Well done if you are still doing the Joe Wicks workout! We are all going to be super fit!

 

Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar (20 mins)

Today, we are going to look at quite a tricky suffix. (Remember that a suffix is added to the end of a word). The sound that this suffix makes is ‘shun’. We are going to explore 4 different ways of writing this:

  • -cian
  • -sion
  • -tion
  • -ssion

Watch this short video if you have access to a computer.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zt62mnb/articles/zyv4qhv

Can you think of any other words to go in each column?

-cian

-sion

-tion

-ssion

Magician

mansion

action

session

Electrician

occasion

creation

Meet ‘Patch’ our very much loved family Rabbit. And yes, he is wearing a lead! He’s so large now, that he gets a good run around our garden every day! He has requested that we create a book of funny adventures to keep him entertained over the Easter Holidays.

Below, I have written the first story to go in Patch’s new adventure story book

Patch is a famous rabbit magician. He lives in a mansion hutch next door to a rabbit electrician. They recently had a discussion about a rather amusing recent occasion in which he was asked to play the lead role in an action movie all about a famous rabbit mathematician.

Task: Can you make up a funny/nonsense short story to add to my book of ‘Patch’s Nonsense Adventures using these words?

Remember to spell them correctly and send them to me to put in Patch’s book in the class gallery!

If you can’t think of any then why don’t you make a new funny story with the words that I have found?

Bonus points if you can find the ‘shun’ suffix I’ve forgotten!

 

Computing (10 minutes)

Choose someone that is not part of your immediate friendship group and send them an email. Why don’t you ask them what they are up to and tell them all about what you have been doing over the week. A great way to communicate with each other. Remember we are all still part of Class 4 even if we are not able to see each other every day!

 

English: (1hour)

Guided Reading:

L.I: I can check that what I am reading makes sense to me and explain the main themes.

Bombs & Blackberries by Julia Donaldson

Have a look through the Cast this (the characters in the play). They are divided into different groups.

1: Manchester people

2: Country People

3: Other Characters

Where is Manchester? Have you ever been to Manchester? Can you find it on a map of the UK?

Task: Read Scene 1 by yourself or with an adult. (Have you noticed that it doesn’t say ‘Chapter 1’? Why?)

Look at the illustrations and describe what is happening in Manchester, Autumn 1939.

Some questions to think about to develop your understanding of what you have read.  You don’t need to record your answers.

Q. Why has the author given the title of Scene 1 –‘Farewell, Manchester, Autumn 1939’?

Q. Why do the children have labels on their coats and gas masks in boxes around their necks?

Q. Where do you think the children might be going to with their teacher?

Q. Why is mum crying as Elsie, Jack and Joey leave Manchester for the country?

Q. Why are the children going to the country without their parents?

 

Let me know if you would find it easier if I read each scene to you, particularly if you are finding it tricky to follow. I could upload it as a video or audio book!

 

Writing: Are you able to do this outside today?

L.I: I can proofread my writing for spelling and punctuation errors

Task 1: What do we know about Joe from reading scene 1? Draw a picture/print this picture of Joe and label with adjectives, expanded noun phrases, and his emotions to use in your writing

Challenge: use other more adventurous words you have collected from your evacuation reading earlier in the week.

Task 2: Write a short diary entry pretending to be Joe based on what you have read in scene 1.  

Look in your writer’s toolkit books to remind yourselves of the features found in a diary entry.

You will add another entry to his diary next week.

 

Why don’t you email your diary entries so I can share with the rest of the class?

 

AoW Why don’t you choose one of your favourite hymns to sing along with today?

 

Maths (1 hour)

L.I: I can convert years to months and weeks to days. Textbook 4A pages: 273 - 276(purple book)

Warm up: Practice your 12 times table. Can you say it forwards? Backwards?  

Write out your 12 x table in your maths books to use today.

In Focus task. Read the information. Look at the different lifespans of the animals. What do we need to do to compare the average lifespans? What key facts do you think will help us when we convert the lifespans?

How many months are there in 1 year?

Let's Learn 1. If we know 1 year = 12 months, how can we calculate 9 years in months? How many groups of 12 in 9 years?

12 x 9 = 108 months

Let's Learn 2. What is the best way to calculate 15 years? We can use a number bond to break 15 into 10 and 5.    10 × 12 = 120 months.

What about 5 × 12?

If we know 10 years = 120 months, how can we use this to calculate 5 months? Establish that by halving the product of 10 and 12 we can calculate 5 × 12.

What statements can you make about the lifespans now that we have converted all of the years to months?

Let's Learn 3. What units of time are we measuring in now? Which key fact would help us with our conversions? (1 week = 7 days.)

During Guided Practice, you are converting years to months and weeks to days.

Write down some key facts in your maths memory books

1 year = ? months

So 2 years = ?

Maths (1 hour)
L.I: To be able to solve word problems involving duration of time. Textbook 4A pages: 269 – 272 (purple book)

Warm up: Practise your times tables

 

To begin this lesson, recap on converting between minutes and seconds, hours and minutes, and 12- and 24-hour clocks.

In Focus task

How long did Emma spent shopping?

What are we trying to find out?

What do we know about the time she went to the shopping centre? What is the time on the 12-hour clock?

 

Let's Learn 2 look at how to calculate the time Emma left using both 12- and 24-hour clocks.

Remember that 1 h = 60 min, not 100 min.

Use the timeline.

Work through the Guided Practice.  If you are finding this tricky then go back to Let’s Learn 1 and re – read. Say it out loud – sometimes that helps. Pretend to be the teacher.

Workbook: page 190-191

 

You might like to create a ‘Time’ poster in your maths memory book – add in all the facts and ways of working out that you have found out this week so far.  

 

Science: (1 hour)

L.I: I can explain how sounds are made and how we hear them

Last week at school, we explored how sounds are made when something vibrates. But how do our ears work?

Watch this video

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zgdmsbk/articles/zkdkmfr

 

Hearing Sounds

Once in your ear, the vibrations travel into the ear canal until they reach the eardrum. The eardrum passes the vibrations through the middle ear bones (the hammer, the anvil and the stirrup) into the inner ear. The inner ear is shaped like a snail and is called the cochlea. Inside the cochlea, there are thousands of tiny hair cells. Hair cells change the vibrations into electrical signals that are sent to the brain through the hearing nerve. The brain tells you that you are hearing a sound and what that sound is.

 

Task: Can you find a creative and interesting way of showing how sound passes through to your ear?

  • You may like to draw and label a picture
  • Create a flow diagram
  • Draw a cartoon strip
  • Create an ear using household objects – take photos of each process
  • Use lego
  • Create a short video

 

Wednesday 25th March

Good Morning Class 4.

PSHE (30- 40mins)

In PSHE we have been learning about the different roles in a newspaper office. Last session we learnt about subeditors, picture editors and journalists and carried out a short task for each role. Think back to each role and write in your book which one you would most like to be and why.

 

Computing (45 mins)

Last session we started to write a quiz using scratch. Go to https://scratch.mit.edu. Create a background and sprite of your choice. Program your sprite to ask you your name and respond. Then program your sprite to ask a multiple choice question and respond when the answer is correct. Be as creative as you like with your questions and answers.

 

Challenge: Can you make your sprite repeat the question if you get it wrong?

 

If you cannot access a computer then write your program in your book.

 

If you get stuck use this to help you but try to do it independently.
