YEAR 4

Hi Year 4,

 

It has been over a week since I put on your first piece of homework.  I just want to let you know what I have spoken to all of the others in Year 4 and everybody is fine.  Some have small colds but nothing more.  I know you are all missing your friends but at least you know they are safe and well.  

 

Thank you for trying so hard with your homework, both online and the folder I gave you.  Many of you talked me through what you had been doing with it and you have all been amazing.  

 

Keep tight, stay safe, and this will soon blow over.  Again, thank you for trying so hard.  Miss you all. 

 

Mr Jones :)

Monday 30th of March

I hope you have enjoyed the extra light and sunshine we have now that the clocks have gone forward! 

 

For literacy, I would like to you write a letter either asking for something or complaining about something.  What could you write about?  Perhaps you could complain about there being too much news about the virus!  Maybe you could write to Boris Johnson asking if you can go back to school?  I will leave it up to you.  Feel free to either send a picture of your work, or type it out and attach it to an email, and I will mark it for you! ]

 

Remember:

The address on the right hand side,

Start with Dear (and the name of the person you are writing to) followed by a comma.

Write in paragraphs including an introductory paragraph and closing paragraph.

Write 'Yours sincerely'

Write and sign your name.

I have had a parental request for more word problems. I have attached three here which have identical questions but the harder ones deal with larger numbers.

(Thanks to Rayyan's mum who noticed my mistake on Q3 of the worded answers!) Here are the 'correct' answers to last weeks maths work. I have worked them out by hand so that you can see where you may have gone wrong. I will wait until the weekends to reveal the answers to give you all time to have a go as not everyone can get online every day. I hope you are all well!

Friday 27th of March

You should have now written out your story.  Feel free to send pictures of what you have written and I will try to mark them and send them back to you as well as I can.  You need to write a new LO.  LO:  To write out my story using paragraphs. 

 

As you write it out, try to make improvements as you go. :D 

Maths - you have had a go at the four operations over the last few days. Have a go at these word questions. On Sunday, I will reveal the answers.

Reading comprehension. Here is a reading comprehension which you can print off if you are able. If not, read in on the screen and answer the questions in your purple book. Try to think which 'reading role' each question is linked to as you do them!

Three times table song.

Have a sing along to this. It will help you to remember your three times tables.

Four times tables

Here are the fours!

Sixes

..and finally, the sixes! :D
Thursday 26th of March
You should be on your last piece of writing for our story now.  This is the ending.  Think of different ways which you could end it.  Are you going to have a romantic ending?  Scary ending? Shocking ending?  A twist (where the unexpected happens), a sad ending or a happy ending? 

Have a go at these bus stop method maths questions. Remember, start from the left and draw out arrays dividing by the divisor on the left. Exchange (carry over) those which cannot fit into a group to the next column.

The Preposition Dance LIVE!

For your fourth piece of writing, you have been asked to use preposition in your resolution. This is where your character overcomes the problem or beats the evil character. If they're fighting, think about how you can describe were they or their weapons are, where do the characters jump or leap to?

It's important to keep moving and exercising, so here is a preposition dance video for you to dance to! :D

Column multiplication - see how you get on with these. Remember that each column represents the value of its column.

Can you sort out these vertebrates and non-vertebrates? What can you find out about each animal? Can you write a non-chronological report about these animals?

Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong - Ella and Louis (1956) - [Classic Vocal Jazz Music]

In recorders with Year 5, we have been looking at some early Jazz so I thought I'd share this with you too. This is Louis Armstrong. He was a pioneer of scatting. That means using your voice to make nonsense rhythm and sounds. He had a huge following and influenced amazing trumpet players such as Miles Davis. The singer is Ella Fitzgerald. She is very famous for having such a wonderful voice. Have a listen. I will put a YouTube video of 'Kind of the Swings' from Junglebook It has fantastic scatting in it but if you get a chance, watch the whole original film. It's amazing!

The Jungle Book - I wanna be like you w/lyrics

Now I'm the king of the swingers Oh, the jungle VIP I've reached the top and had to stop And that's what botherin' me I wanna be a man, mancub And stroll rig...

In Search of the World's Greatest Pianos, Part 41: Fazioli F308

Hi guys, Have a listen to this piano. It is probably the best piano made today. It is over 3 metres long and probably costs about £250,000. The piece he is playing is by Chopin and it is called Fantaisie-Impromptu. I wish I could play like this. Look how difficult it is! Enjoy!

Lowry Pictures - matchstick people. Look at these Lowry pictures. As an artist, he was fascinated with people who worked in mills. Have a think about what it was like in Bradford, people gathering together to work in the mills sometimes for 12 hours a day in dirty, dangerous conditions!
