Happy Hump day!
As always, I hope your week is going ok. I’m really missing being in school with you all. I have started to contact some of you to touch base and see how you’re doing, I will continue to do this over the next or two, so watch out for a ‘withheld’ phone call!
Hopefully, you’ve got the hang of finding the area by counting the squares. Today’s you’ll need to use these skills again to compare the area of shapes.
I have attached two different types of worksheets. All the sheets DO NOT need to be completed – do what best fits how you’re feeling! Here’s a reminder of what they are:
VF – this gives you the opportunity to practise the skill you are learning
R/PS – is the next step, where you are using your skills to problem solve or reason
Each document has three differentiated worksheets (labelled in coloured stars in the left hand corner) D = warm up, E=Y4 expected, GD=next step.
To consolidate what you’ve learnt on Monday and Tuesday about apostrophes, log into Classroom Secrets and play some of the apostrophe games. These are under, Year 4, GPS: ‘Year 4 Apostrophe for Contraction Game’ and ‘Year 4 Plural Apostrophe Game’. To make sure you're really sure about the two uses of apostrophes, make yourself a poster that explains, shows and gives examples. They’re a bugbear of mine and I would love to see that you are using apostrophes correctly in your future writing. The best poster will go up in our classroom next year!
You could also be working on one of your writing activities today too! Don't forget to upload them to your portfolio and cross them off your bingo board.
Optional stuff! (Same information as yesterday)
I know you are all keeping busy doing lots of different things and it’s great to see such a variety of the things you’re up to. Here are just some optional things that you can dip into if you’re wanting something to do…
I’ve seen some of you have been ‘Drawing with Rob’. I had a go and I really enjoyed it! If you haven’t yet, take a look at his website, #DrawWithRob — Rob Biddulph there are lots of different tutorials to support your drawing skills, from animals, to racing cars!
I have also attached ‘Starters for STEM’ document which provides you with some activities to help you develop your science, technology, engineering and maths skills.
Enjoy your hump day!
