Maths (45 Minutes)
Today in maths you will be completing your final lesson on area. Before half term, you were able to count the squares inside a 2D shape. In todays lesson, you will be comparing 2D shapes and reasoning which are bigger. You have 6 questions to complete. Please use the video to help you.
For reading this afternoon I would like you to read a book to an adult. Record the following in your writing book.
Whilst reading, please can you select some tricky vocabulary words from your text and clarify these words. What do they mean? Why are they used? Use the internet to help you if you don’t know what they mean.
Also, whilst reading, look at some difficult explanation phrases you might not understand and ask a parent what they mean. If you are still struggling, type it in google and write down what you find.
At the end of your reading session, I would like you to summarise what has happened. What did you learn? What did you not expect?
When you’ve done that, take some time to just relax and read for another 5 or 10 minutes. Enjoy your reading time.
Good afternoon Year 4, today in science you will be moving onto a new topic of Rocks. What do you already know about rocks? Watch this video to explore them.
For your task today, you will need to draw a table in your book and separate them into Natural Rocks and Human-made Rocks.
As an extra challenge, I have added a Kahoot Quiz. We will complete this at the end of the term as well for fun to see how much we have learnt and progressed! Give it a go if you would like to.
