Good Morning Y4!
I hope yesterday’s home learning went well.
The maths activity will revise topics we have already covered together in class to give you some extra practise. The English activities will follow a similar structure to how we work when we are in school. Activities should take you around 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Maths: Subtracting two four digit numbers.
Yesterday addition, today subtraction. We’re going to start again by using the Daily10 on www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10 choose level 4, choose subtraction and choose 4 digit numbers. It will be then up to you to set how many seconds you think it will take you to subtract two four digit numbers, (you can click manual if you prefer to not complete it in a given time). For some of the calculations you will need to use the written method (when exchanging), for others you may be able to work them out mentally. Good luck!
Now you have practised subtracting, I would like you to apply your skills to problem solving (PS) and reasoning (R) questions (see the worksheet). Remember to check the star symbol in the left corner of the strip, E = I’m feeling confident. GD = I’m feeling very confident.
(Answers are provided for adults checking your work, or you could mark your own work, in a different colour of course and if you’ve made any mistakes try to work out where you have gone wrong and learn from the mistakes.)
English: Grammar – understanding and using paragraphs
As we know, paragraphs are used to help us structure our writing. We change paragraph when the topic, time or place changes. Today you will use the ‘paragraph worksheet’, read the information and identify what each paragraph is about. The worksheets differentiated using a star system in the top left hand corner. Three stars being the more ‘challenging’. Answers are included to check once you’ve had a go!
Next, I would like you to think back to yesterday’s image – you may need to have another look! Can you start to plan a piece of writing to persuade humans to treat animals with respect? What different paragraphs would you have? You do not need to start writing it today, you are only planning out your paragraphs – what will each one be about?
Spelling time – using the same 5 spellings from the y3/4 spelling list you picked yesterday. Choose a different activity to complete from the spelling menu at the front of your spelling book.
Hope all goes well! Speak to you again tomorrow!
