SUGGESTED timetable for the week 

 

This week we have provided a suggested timetable above but we are going to give you all the tasks by subject instead of by day.  You will then be able to post your work onto class dojo into the right folder eg. ‘Writing activity 1’ whenever you have completed it.  The work does not need to be completed on the days suggested above.  Do what fits your family best.  Remember the most important things are to read and practise your times tables.   

Instead of giving a get epic task every day this week, we are still going to suggest a range of books on this website, but there are also other suggested reading activities that you could choose from instead below. 

 

Suggested Reading Activities  

Remember these are some ideas for activities you could do over the next few weeks.  Choose one or think of a reading activity of your own.  You can post pictures on dojo of any activities you manage to do.  The most important thing is to read as often as you can. 

  • Read a book in the garden/in your favourite place to read – you could post a photo of yourself reading on your dojo profile – we’d love to see them! 

  • Read a story to someone at home. 

  • Share reading a story with someone at home eg. read a page each. 

  • Write us a book review telling us all about a book that we might enjoy – it’s always good to have ideas of what we could read next! 

  • Draw a picture of a character in the book thinking about what you have found out from the text. 

  • Predict what might happen next in a story you are enjoying – you could discuss this with someone at home or write your ideas down.   

  • Talk to someone at home about what has happened in a book you are enjoying. 

  • Make a timeline of the events in a story – you could draw a comic strip or act them out. 

  • Describe your favourite part of a story you have read – you could draw an illustration for it. 

Comprehension Activities 

  • Read this short text and try to answer the questions.  You can answer these straight into your workbook – you don’t need to print out the sheet.

PSHE Activity 

Create a set of ‘worry stones’. These are a great way for children to name their worries and work through them. Follow the instructions below to create your own: 

  • Find a good smooth stone 

  • Decorate it. This could be as a monster, a person, colours linked to the feeling (link to previous activities) 

  • Leave to dry 

Whenever you feel worried, rub your thumb across the stone. This gives a tactile link and can help calm the mind. Once the worry is gone the stone could be ‘retired’ in a garden or display to show how you have worked through your worry. 

Music Activity 

Go to the BBC Ten pieces at home webpage. We use these pieces throughout school to allow children to experience classical music in an interactive way.  

  1. Watch Claudia Winkelman discover the story of The Firebird by Stravinsky. 

  1. See how illustrator James Mayhew uses the performance to inspire him to draw. 

  1. Have go at your own inspired artwork. Send them to us on classdojo. 

 

Geography Activity 

Follow the instructions on the file below to answer the questions on page 1. You will need to look at the map on page 2 and the symbols on page 3 to help you. 

You can answer the questions in your work book. 

Computing Activity

Comprehension Activities 

  • Read this short text and try to answer the questions.  You can answer these straight into your workbook – you don’t need to print out the sheet. 

Writing activity 1 

  1. Haiku is a very old form of poetry from Japan. It consists of three unrhymed lines. Traditionally, the first and last lines have five syllables each, and the middle line has seven syllables. Notice how many syllables are in each line of this haiku by the 17th-century Japanese poet Basho: 

From all directions  

Winds bring petals of cherry  

Into the bird lake 

Having few words and pausing at the end of each short line gives a special feeling to haiku. Even a simple statement sounds thoughtful—as though it has a deeper meaning. 

  1.  How do you write a haiku?  Make sure your first line has five syllables, your second line has seven syllables and your final line has five syllables in it.  Check out the examples below about Harry Potter. 

 

Scar on his forehead 

Quidditch star every weekend 

Likes to zoom on brooms. 

 

Can you choose another character from Harry Potter and write a Haiku to describe them?  If you like you could draw a picture to illustrate your haiku. 

 

Writing Activity 2 

Can you write haikus about different places in Harry Potter that you have read about.  You could choose Hogwarts, the Forbidden Forest, the Dursley’s house, the Gryffindor Common room or another place of your choice. 

Here is an example about Diagon Alley: 

 

Dark and shabby street 

Brick to touch to let you in 

Goblins run Gringotts. 

 

Maths Activity 1 - Solving measure and money problems 

Watch the video on lesson 1 from the Oak National Academy online classroom (Year 4 maths, measure and money problems) – Pause the video throughout the examples and complete then complete the activity. They should write their answers in their workbooks, or if you want them to print the activity out, this can be written on and stuck in their workbook. 

Maths Activity 2 - Solving measure and money problems 

Watch the video on lesson 2 from the Oak National Academy online classroom (Year 4 maths, measure and money problems) – Pause the video throughout the examples and complete then complete the activity. They should write their answers in their workbooks, or if you want them to print the activity out, this can be written on and stuck in their workbook. 

Use these treasure hunt cards to try to find some of these things in your local area.  If you cannot get out to do this at the moment eg. if you and your family are self-isolating, you could save this activity for a future week or think about where you have seen some of these things in the past. 

 

PE Activity 1 

This week’s Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) is dodging. Watch the video on youtube by our sports partnership group to see how to set up a dodge track https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvRjTIxxvqo. Ask an adult to help time you. 

1. What is the fastest time you can complete your track? 

2. Can you create an assault course with a dodge track included? 

3. Time your family to see who can complete the course the quickest.

PSHE Activity 

We are continuing to look at how we express feelings and our mental well-being. 

Choose 1 of the big feelings from the last activity. Write or draw it on the body outline sheet thinking about: 

  • Where in the body might someone have that feeling? 

  • If the feeling had a colour, what would it be?  

  • If it had a shape, what would it be? 

  • If it had a texture, what would it be? 

  • If the feeling had a sound, what would it be? 

  • If the feeling were an image or a picture, what would it be? 

 

Write a list of activities that allow you to express your feelings (eg talking, acting, singing, dancing, art, music, writing: stories, blogs, poems, diaries). Create a picture board of how you like to express your feelings. 

 

 

 

Music Activity 

Go to Out of the ark music website  The site has lots of songs for the children to sing.  Choose one and you could post a video of you singing on your dojo page.   

 

Geography Activity 

Use Digimap for schools  website.  In top right corner press the orange log in button.   

The username is: L396SF and the password is: wraphs1941 

This should bring up a UK map.

Writing activity 1

Read/listen to chapters 10 and 11. https://hpaudiobooks.club/philosopher-stone-stephen-fry/2

Have a go at writing some instructions for how to play Quidditch. 

Think about:

The equipment needed.

The players needed.

How to play – Where is it played? What does each player do?  What happens when the Quaffle goes through the hoops?  What happens when the snitch is caught? 

 

Writing Activity 2

Read/listen to chapter 6.  What might Harry and Ron chat about on the train to Hogwarts?  If possible discuss this with someone at home and note down ideas.

Draw speech bubbles and write into them what each character might say in a conversation.  Try to draw at least 4 speech bubbles for each character.  As a challenge you could add an alternative word for said outside the speech bubble.

Have a look at these ideas to help.

 

Writing Activity 3

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zvftsbk  Watch video about speech marks.  

Can you put your conversation from yesterday’s work into speech marks using the rules from the video?

Try to use some of the different words for ‘said’ from the word mat you looked at yesterday.

Eg. “I can’t believe we’re going to Hogwarts at last!” cried Ron.

As a challenge, you could also try to add an adverb eg. happily, loudly for how they said it.

Eg. “I can’t believe we’re going to Hogwarts at last!” cried Ron excitedly.

 

Maths Activity 1

Go to https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/

Science

Draw a picture of the sun and a picture of themselves standing outside. Draw where they think their shadow will be?

 

Discuss where the sun is in the sky over the day. How can you observe this? Discuss not looking directly at the sun.

Plan an investigation into measuring the size and position of your shadow over a day.

Discuss how often you would measure it eg. Every hour.

 

Think of different ways they could measure their shadow using what they have at home eg. Photos, string, tape measures, drawing round with chalk and the best way to record their results eg. photos, table of measurements etc. Watch www.bbc.co.uk/education/clips/z6fnvcw

 

PE Activity 1

This week’s Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) is how to kick a ball accurately. Watch the video on youtube by our sports partnership group to see how to aim and target an area. See if you can accurately kick into an area 5 times in a row. Then make it harder by moving back a step and trying again.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbZ0AH5QXdI

1. How many steps can you move back and still hit the target 5 times in a row?

2. How many steps can you move back and still hit the target 5 out of 10 times? (does not need to be in a row)

3. Can you make a game kicking a ball to a target area? Decide on a point system and how you might change it for different people (maybe taller people have to stand further back). Blog your game and how to play.

Watch this clip how to draw 3simple spring flowers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bYgLP47NCw 

Have a go at doing your own sketches. 

 

Find pictures of flowers and birds on the internet or observe birds and flowers in your garden and make some other observational drawings. 

If you want to you could use coloured pencils, chalk, watercolours and pastels to create your own frescoes. Remember you could use smudging techniques if using pastels or chalks. Think about what you like about your drawings and what you could change perhaps if you had other equipment available. 

 

Science 

Try to plan an investigation into whether the distance of the light source (eg torch) from the object affects the clearness of the shadow. 

Think about what would keep the same each time you try this (Type of torch, type of object, size of object etc). 

What would you change (distance from torch). 

Discuss how would measure eg. putting torch 10cm further away each time. If you think a different distance would be better, try it and see how well it works. 

 

Record the results in a table with the shadow being given a rating from 1-5 (1 being blurred/5 being clear) 

Distance from torch 

Clearness of shadow 

 

Try to complete this sentence: 

‘As the torch gets further away, the shadow gets ___________. 

 

PE Activity 1 

This week’s Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) is how to roll a ball accurately. Watch the video on youtube by our sports partnership group to see how to aim and target an area. See if you can accurately roll into an area 5 times in a row. Then make it harder by moving back a step and trying again.  

  1. How many steps can you move back and still hit the target 5 times in a row? 

  1. How many steps can you move back and still hit the target 5 out of 10 times? (does not need to be in a row) 

  1. Can you make a game rolling an object to a target area? Decide on a point system and how you might change it for different people (maybe taller people have to stand further back). Blog your game and how to play.

BANK HOLIDAY – Have a lovely day!

SUGGESTED timetable for the week

 

This week we have provided a suggested timetable above but we are going to give you all the tasks by subject instead of by day.  You will then be able to post your work onto class dojo into the right folder eg. ‘Writing activity 1’ whenever you have completed it.  The work does not need to be completed on the days suggested above.  Do what fits your family best.  Remember the most important things are to read and practise your times tables. 

Instead of giving a get epic task every day this week, we are still going to suggest a range of books on this website, but there are also other suggested reading activities that you could choose from instead below.

 

Suggested Reading Activities

Remember these are some ideas for activities you could do over the next few weeks.  Choose one or think of a reading activity of your own.  You can post pictures on dojo of any activities you manage to do.  The most important thing is to read as often as you can.

  • Read a book in the garden/in your favourite place to read – you could post a photo of yourself reading on your dojo profile – we’d love to see them!
  • Read a story to someone at home.
  • Share reading a story with someone at home eg. read a page each.
  • Write us a book review telling us all about a book that we might enjoy – it’s always good to have ideas of what we could read next!
  • Draw a picture of a character in the book thinking about what you have found out from the text.
  • Predict what might happen next in a story you are enjoying – you could discuss this with someone at home or write your ideas down. 
  • Talk to someone at home about what has happened in a book you are enjoying.
  • Make a timeline of the events in a story – you could draw a comic strip or act them out.
  • Describe your favourite part of a story you have read – you could draw an illustration for it.

 

Comprehension Activities

Read this short text and try to answer the questions.  You can answer these straight into your workbook – you don’t need to print out the sheet.

Comprehension Activities (Choose 1)

Writing activity 1

 

 

 

 

 

Listen to/read chapter 11 – Quidditch.  https://hpaudiobooks.club/philosopher-stone-stephen-fry/3/

 

List things that Harry saw when he was playing his first Quidditch match – can you think of at least 5 different things that Harry can see in each picture and write an adjective to describe each thing.

How did he feel – how do you know this from the text eg. Harry felt _______ because __________.

Can you think of at least 3 different feelings with reasons to go with each of the pictures.

 

Writing Activity 2

Use the pictures from the last session to write a diary entry as Harry.  Remember you will need to write in the first person using ‘I’ and ‘my’ if you are pretending to be Harry. 

Write one paragraph for each of the pictures.  In each paragraph, describe what you can see.   Also describe how you feel at this point in the Quidditch match giving reasons for why you feel like this.

 

Maths Activity 1

Go to White Rose Maths Summer Term week 2 and click on Summer term Week 2 W/C 27th April and look at Lesson 3 – pounds and pence.  Watch the video and complete the questions on the worksheet.  You do not need to print the worksheet.  The questions can be answered in your work book.

 

Maths Activity 2

Go to White Rose Maths Summer Term Week 2 and click on Summer term Week 2 W/C 27th April and look at Lesson 4 – ordering money.  Watch the video and complete the questions on the worksheet.  You do not need to print the worksheet.  The questions can be answered in your work book.

Art Activity

Last lesson we sketched ideas for a mosaic. 

Use this graphic package to create your own Roman mosaic design. 

http://macropolis.org/banderillas/famosaic/easy.htm 

When you are happy with your design watch the following you tube clip creating a paper mosaic. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3Lxyqn42eU 

 

Science Activity

Make a list of 10 surfaces that you can see your reflection in (spoon, mirror etc.).

What is different about your reflection in each of these surfaces?

Look at yourself in a mirror. If you lift your hand up, which hand does your reflection lift up?

If you touch your left ear, which ear does your reflection touch?

 

If you have a printer, print the maze pictures below. Using a pencil try to complete maze A looking at the maze. Then try completing maze B but only looking at the maze in a mirror.  Ask someone to time you for each and record your time.  We have included the ‘your partner’ sheet in case anyone at home wants to try to beat your times!

If you don’t have a printer try to draw the maze below.

As a challenge sketch out your own maze four times.  Try to complete the first maze looking at the maze on the paper then the second one only looking at the maze in a mirror.  Ask someone to time you for each and record your time.  The third and fourth mazes are for anyone at home who wants to try to beat your times!

It might look like this:

 

 

PE Activity 1

Today fundamental skill is balancing. Watch the video to see how to effectively balance on 1 leg.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KEzbkxKZWRc

  1. Time yourself (or ask a family member to) balancing on each leg. Can you balance longer on your left or your right?
  2. Have a balancing competition with your family. Who can balance the longest? Can they still balance the longest on the other leg?
  3. Try lowering your body in a squat position, this lowers your centre of gravity. Lift 1 leg forwards to balance on the other leg. Is it easier to balance on 1 leg lower down or harder?

 

PE Activity 2

Complete some gonoodle activities. Try a different type of video you’ve not done before eg a yoga activity. Did you enjoy it?

Music Activity

Continue to have a go at the activities and songs on the charanga website.

 

History Activity

 Who was Boudicca and what did she do? 

  1. Read this description and draw a picture of the person being described. 

‘She was a Briton of royal descent. The rebels thought her their best leader. She was much more intelligent than women usually are. She was tall, and she was terrifying to look at. She had a fierce look in her eyes and a raucous voice. A huge mass of yellow, knotted hair hung down to her hips. Around her neck she had a huge torque of gold and she wore a scruffy dress of many colours, over which she fastened a thick cloak with a brooch. She looked terrifying. This was how she normally dressed.’ 

  1. Read this description and draw a picture of the person being described. 

‘She is a good Queen, always friendly and helpful to her people. We like her very much and respect what she tries to do for us.  

She is tall and has long beautiful golden hair. She has a sparkle in her eyes and is always smiling.  

She sometimes rides on a chariot. She wears lovely colourful clothes which are held together with a golden brooch’ 

 

Both of these describe the same person.  Why do they differ? (One is written by the Romans and one by the Celts).  Who is telling the truth? 

 

Most of the information that we know about the Celts was written by Romans. Can we trust this information to be accurate? Are there any modern day sources of information we can’t always trust and why? (eg Wikipedia because anyone can edit it)

 

Have a great week!

Summer week 2 - Week commencing 27th April

 

Below is our suggested timetable for the week. Details for the activities each day can be found below. Please choose activities that fit in with your household routine and do not feel like you have to complete every activity. A good balance of school activities, spending time as a family and relaxing is vital at this time. You can add any activity onto ClassDojo for us to see.

Reading

We have added some more texts on getepic.  Always click the three question marks to complete the quiz at the end of your reading.

Writing

Warm up using spelling frame to practise this week’s spellings either by using the practise or a free game.

 

Description of Albus Dumbledore

Nothing like this man had ever been seen in Privet Drive.  He was tall, thin and very old, judging by the silver of his hair and beard, which were both long enough to tuck into his belt.  He was wearing long robes, a purple cloak which swept the ground and high heeled, buckled boots.  His blue eyes were light, bright and sparkling behind half-moon spectacles and his nose was very long and crooked, as though it had been broken at least twice.  This man’s name was Albus Dumbledore.

 

Description of Hagrid

If the motorbike was huge, it was nothing compared to the man sitting astride it.  He was almost twice as tall as a normal man and at least five times as wide.  He looked simply too big to be allowed, and so wild – long tangles of bushy black hair and beard hid most of his face, he has hands the size of dustbin lids and his feet in their leather boots were like baby dolphins.  In his vast, muscular arms he was holding a bundle of blankets.  A giant of a man was standing in the doorway.  His face was almost completely hidden by a long, shaggy mane of hair and a wild, tangled beard, but you could make out his eyes, glinting like black beetles under all the hair.

Read these descriptions and then choose one that you want to work on.  Draw a sketch of this character and label it using words from the description.  You could then also add your own words about how you imagine the character to look.  Think about their appearance including their clothes and their personality.

Use your sketch to write a description of the character that you chose.  Try to split your writing into 2 paragraphs – one about their appearance and one about their personality.  Think about using some adjectives and fronted adverbials.

 

Examples for each paragraph:

Appearance

Under his long black cloak, he wore a scruffy white shirt with huge holes in.

Personality

After he laughed, his eyes twinkled with joy as he smiled at the students.

 

Maths

Play TT Rockstars (15 mins) remember all your coins go in our pot against the other classes.

 

Art

Look at this BBC History website showing mosaic floors. http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/ancient/romans/mosaics_gallery_07.shtml

What can you see in the mosaics? E.g Eagle, Gladiator.

As well as mosaics the Romans decorated rooms with frescoes a painting done rapidly in watercolour on wet plaster on a wall or ceiling, so that the colours penetrate (go into) the plaster and become fixed as it dries.

Look at some of the frescoes on this website and video.

What can you see? E.g. birds trees flowers.

Sketch a few of your favourite mosaics and frescoes.

Maths

Warm up using TT Rockstar (15 mins) remember all your coins go in our pot against the other classes.

Watch the White Rose Hub Summer Term Week 2 W/C 27th April – Click on Summer Term Week 2 and then look at lesson 1 – Round Decimals.  You do not need to print the worksheet out, you can only answer the questions that do not require lots of drawing of resources.  

Science

Draw a mug.  Can you add the shadow to the picture as if a light was shining on it from one side?  Then try this out with a mug and a torch or the sunlight and see if you were right.  Was there anything that you missed?

 

Explore with torches and other materials you can find around the house eg. Card with holes cut in, comb, mirrors, book in different positions eg. pages spread out, cardboard tube, building block etc.   Draw what you can see.  The objects don’t have to be the ones on this list – they are just suggestions – what can you find that makes an interesting shadow? 

How can we make a shadow bigger? Investigate moving an object away from the torch or the torch away from the light – decide which they will do after exploring both.  Can you measure how far the object is from the torch and measure the object each time.  If you can you should measure the object but if you don’t have measuring equipment eg. Tape measure at home you could describe the size using a scale from 1-5 (1 being small and 5 being the biggest).

Record results in a table eg.

Eg.

Distance of torch from object

Size of shadow

 

 

 

PE

This week we’re focusing on Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) and how to throw accurately. Watch the video on youtube by our sports partnership group to see how to aim and target an area. See if you can accurately throw into an area 5 times in a row. Then make it harder by moving back a step and trying again.

  1. How many steps can you move back and still hit the target 5 times in a row?
  2. How many steps can you move back and still hit the target 5 out of 10 times? (does not need to be in a row)
  3. Can you make a game throwing an object to a target area? Decide on a point system and how you might change it for different people (maybe taller people have to stand further back). Blog your game and how to play.

Read/listen to chapter 8 of the story.

https://hpaudiobooks.club/philosopher-stone-stephen-fry/2/

Think about how each of the teachers is described.  Sketch your own teacher that might work at Hogwarts.  Think carefully about the type of person they are and how you might show this in what they look like eg. Snape has ‘cold and empty eyes’.

When you have drawn your character, label it, thinking again about their appearance, clothes and personality.

Write a description of the character that you planned. 

Split your description into 3 paragraphs – what they look like, their clothes and their personality.
