For Maths today, I would like you to complete one of the maths warm up activities!
Last week, I made a What Shape am I? quiz all about 2D shapes. I gave you clues about what shape I was by describing the number of vertices, number of sides, right angles and length of sides. Your task is to make your own 'what shape am I?' quiz questions based on 3D shapes. From your clues, people should be able to identify exactly what 3D shape you are describing so you need to include lots of details. Try to include the number of vertices, number of sides, number and shape of its faces and anything else you can think of (maybe an everyday object that is the same shape)! I would like you to complete this activity for at least 4 3D shapes. I have included an example slide for you. Start a new slide for each new 3D shape that you are describing. You can design your slides however you would like. At the end of the week, I am going to put your different clues together so that we can all have a go at answering your quiz question. If possible, practice your clue with somebody and see if they can guess your shape!
If you get a bit stuck describing the shape, rewatch last weeks video or have a look at the grid you created!
Please watch the digestive system video attached. Next, complete the labelling activity on powerpoint. Move the names of the organs to the right boxes. Once you have done this, have a go at ordering what happens to food when it enters the body. You can do this by moving the boxes of writing. The box that describes the first part of digestion should be at the top, followed by the second part of digestion underneath etc. until the final part of digestion is at the bottom. If you get stuck, rewatch the video to help you!
Think about which organs food passes through the body, and in what order.
As a warm up, complete one of the activities from the grid at the top of this page.
Today, I would like you to master your 3 and 4 times tables. I have attached 2 videos with songs that should help you. I would like you to listen to the songs and complete the hand activity for both times tables. Remember in class we drew around our hands and wrote the answers in the fingers. The we covered the answers and quizzed eachother e.g. what is 7x3? until you feel confident that you know your tables. When you feel confident, complete the Hit the Button games that are linked below. My high score is 25. Can you beat me?
When you think you have mastered these times tables, please complete the following IXL tasks:
Year 4 F.4 Multiply by 3
Year 4 F.5- Multiply by 4
Project- Choice (12.01.2021)
For your project today, I would like you to choose a Humanities (RED) activity to complete from the 'Only We Can Save the World' grid. The grid can be found under 'Project' on our home learning page.
Now that you have finished your informal letters, we are going to be moving onto a new literacy topic. We will be looking at fables. A fable is a short story that has a moral. A moral is a lesson or message that can be learned from the story. It is generally a lesson about right and wrong/good and bad behaviour. When you read the story, think about what is the story trying to tell us? People can have different opinions about what the moral of a story is, so there is really no right or wrong answer. If you are really stuck trying to think of what the moral of the stories are, you can research it on the internet.
I would like you to complete one of the comprehension activities (mild, spicy, extra spicy). Try to challenge yourself. You must answer all of the questions attached to your comprehension and write in full sentences. Just have a go!
I have attached a document called 'Comprehension Answers' if you have trouble typing on the question document.
Mild- The Tortoise and the Hare - you will not be able to write on the questions in this document so type your answers in full sentences on the next page. The reading and questions are all in one document.
Spicy- The Princess and the Pea and The Tortoise and the Hare- there are two documents attached; the text and the questions. See SPICY reading and SPICY questions.
Extra Spicy- The Princess and the Pea, The Fox and the Crane, The Lion and the Mouse. See EXTRA SPICY reading and EXTRA SPICY questions.
The video is a bit jumpy so I want to explain your chilli challenge here:
Mild- Year 2 J.3 Fact Families and Year 3 K.1 related addition facts
Spicy- Year 3 K.2 related subtraction facts and K.3 Fact Families
Extra Spicy- Create your own fact families (at least 6). You can use whatever numbers you like to create your fact families.
Challenge- Create your own fact family/use one that you have already made to explain how your fact family works. How do you know that your set of numbers are a fact family?
Please revise adding by jumping on a number line. Make sure you use the jumping on method because it will help us with our subtraction lessons next week. I have attached two videos explaining how we jump on. Attached is a powerpoint with Mild, Spicy and Extra Spicy questions. If you would like a challenge, prove your answer by checking whether you get the same sum when adding a different way (e.g. vertical method).
You should all now have identified some of the features of fables (what they have in common). I would like you to read the fable 'The Ant and the Grasshopper' and identify the features included in the fable. You can do this by creating a jigsaw. Like we did with the informal letter, move the icons to the correct place.
Mild- Move the icons on page 1 to the correct place. Identify the features in the "MILD Features of a fable" presentation.
Spicy- Move the icons on page 1 to the correct place. Identify the features in the "SPICY Features of a fable" presentation.
Extra Spicy- If you are in Hufflepuff, you must complete the Extra Spicy task. Move the icons on page 1 to the correct place. Research other features of a fable using the link. Google a picture that relates to that feature e.g. a wise character might be an owl. Paste the icon onto the powerpoint, write next to the icon what feature it symbolises and then label the Ant and the Grasshopper text.
P.E. and ICT (14.01.2021)
We are mixing ICT and P.E. today to create our exercise log. Please watch the video and follow the instructions. You must choose a NETFLEX workout to complete. Netflex is available on our class page under home learning.
Please watch the video on increasing place values and how they help us answer addition/subtraction questions. Once you have watched the video, have a go at:
Year 4 C.8 addition with increasing Place Values
We have talked about sources before (Martin Luther King image). I want you to complete this source square. In each square there is a question about the source that I would like you to think about and answer. There are no right or wrong answers- this is all about what YOU think and what you can gather from the picture/writing.
Mild- Slide 1- Answer the questions
Spicy- Slide 2- Use the sentence stems to help you answer the questions
Extra Spicy- Slide 3- Use the sentence stems to extend your answers. Why do you think this/how do you know?
The questions and sentence stems have been written in text boxes so you will be able to click onto the text box and write in it.
