Monday 1st June

Good Morning Year 4 - have a marvellous Monday!

We are looking forward to seeing all your hard work and fun as usual.  Remember to email pictures of your work and pictures of you have fun to year4@holycrossprimary.thurrock.sch.uk

 

Before half term we focused on short writing.  Over the next few weeks we are going to be writing at length to get you ready for Year 5.  Your English lesson should take 1 hour each day. 

10 minutes to think and plan.

40 minutes to write.

10 minutes to edit and improve.

You need to remember to use your neatest, cursive handwriting.

Make sure you use a variety of punctuation - A . , ! ?

Use all your grammar knowledge and check your spelling.

Write in paragraphs - start a new paragraph when something new happens.

You should be working towards writing at least an A4 page by the end of your 40 minutes.

We can't wait to read your work!

Guided Reading

Read the text and answer the questions in full sentences unless it tells you otherwise.  There are 2 texts with 4 questions each to answer. Each text and set of questions should take you no more than 10 minutes to complete.

 

Maths

We are back to having access to White Rose again.  This follows the curriculum we would be doing in class.

Watch the video: https://vimeo.com/420682145

Then complete the worksheet below.

YOGA

As well as a topic lesson everyday, we thought it would be fun to try a little bit of Yoga each day to help us focus.  

Give it a go and send in your pictures of you and your family doing the Yoga poses.

SCIENCE

This half term we are looking at Habitats in Science as part of our animals and humans topic.  We want to make this topic very practical and get you out in the garden and looking for different habitats.

 

The first piece of work is to find out about minibeasts.  Read the information below and answer the questions.

 

Then you can go on a minibeast hunt and see what creatures you can find.  If you don't have access to a garden or out door area, you can use the internet to look up some of the minibeasts.

 

 

Purple Mash

If you want to do any extra work, then you can use Purple Mash.  When you log into Purple Mash click on the weekly activities on the right hand side.  Then click on ages 7-9.  When you go into this folder, click on week 8 

Then you can complete the activities for Monday.

 

Stay alert, stay safe!  Mrs Westrop & Mrs Renoldi King
