Home Learning: 06 July 2020

Posted on Sunday 05 July 2020 by Mr Roundtree

Good morning, Year 3 and 4. Are you ready for another week of home learning?

Here is your learning for today.

Maths

Head to Oak National Academy to learn all about measures. In this lesson, we will use our knowledge of reading scales and our understanding of mass to compare and order different values.

 

Reading

Have you ever seen the film “How to train your dragon?” well today, your reading task is a comprehension task all about training dragons? I wonder if they have the same ideas.

There are three options for this task. You can choose the challenge you want to do. 1 star = easier. 2 star = medium. 3 star = harder. Don’t be too easy on yourself – give yourself a challenge!

 

Science

Today, head to Oak National Academy to learn more about plants. In this lesson, we will learn about how plants transport water internally and watch this in an experiment.

Good morning, Year 3 and 4!

It’s Friday! Hope you’ve all had a happy, healthy, and successful week.

Reading

How did you find yesterday’s challenge to send questions in? Thank you to Evie for her super questions. Can you answer them?

  1. Who introduced social distancing?
  2. What will social distancing do?
  3. How do Myra and Jagrati kept in touch with their grandparents?
  4. At school are there more or less pupils?
  5. Why do you think Myra and Jagrati put on the play?
  6. What three things have the government asked people to do?

For today’s reading session it is Love of reading.
In class, we’d usually have a Love of Reading session each week where we read something
that we love. Adults use the time to read with children.
Today, I’d like you to…
● Get really comfy: wear some thick socks, a dressing gown or wooly jumper. Sit somewhere soft and relaxing.
● Turn all electronic devices off: TVs, radios, computers, phones, tablets, etc.
● Spend some quality time reading with each other. Read aloud, take it in turns, put on voices for characters, re-read things to improve how you’re reading them.
● Talk about what you’re reading. Which are the best bits? Why? Does it remind you of other things you’ve read or watched? Do you know anything about parts of it from other knowledge that you have? What do you think of the characters? What will happen next? Why do you think that?

 

Maths

It’s challenge Friday! Head over to BBC Bitesize for today’s maths challenge.

 

Living and Learning: I can make healthy choices

This week, our living and learning statement has been all about making healthy choices. It is often easier to make healthy choices with our food and our body – we know to eat healthily and to exercise but what about a healthy mind? That is just as important!

Today, we’re thinking about keeping our minds healthy. Follow some of the links below and have a go at some activities.

Good morning everyone. Is it really Thursday already? What is your new healthy choice for today? (Don’t forget that you can look back to Monday’s post for ideas!)

Let’s all have a boogie to the 8x table!

Maths:

Year3: Today we are going to be looking at methods to help us solve addition and subtraction problems. You may be familiar with the RUCSAC method. Can you remember what each of the letters stand for when helping us to solve mathematical word problems? Click on the slideshow to find out.

Year 4: As we continue to work on fractions, in today’s video lesson we are looking at subtracting fractions from a whole number.

Reading: By now we’ve read the text for three days so you should be very familiar with it. Remember to read the text again out loud to develop your fluency. Then, write some of your own comprehension questions for Mrs Rowley and Mrs Welsby to answer. Try and include some retrieval, interpret and choice question – like we have in our RIC style questions. Please send them in, like Joe did last week, and we can add them into tomorrow’s post.

RE: Today we are learning about the scared text of Christianity with Miss Dhillon from the Oak National Academy.

Well, July is here and a massive WELL DONE if you are still slogging on with home learning!

Maths

Watch the video about fact families : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gT2Wdo6g-Rw

Write the whole fact family (two addition and two subtraction) for each part whole model.

eg : 10 + 6 = 16

6 + 10 = 16

16 – 10 = 6

16 – 6 = 10

Challenge

Filp the calculation to make 4 more calculations

eg : 16 = 10 + 6

16 = 6 + 10

6 = 16 – 10

10 = 16 – 6

Reading

Jerome (from the Word Collector story) loved collecting words that were short and sweet, two-syllable treats or multi-syllable words.

Write and cut each word into syllables : whisper, savour, dream, smudge, breeze, peace, electric, glimmer, dream, wonderful, marvellous.

eg

Challenge : choose some words of your own to split into syllables

Topic

Create a piece of art work using words.

Pinch, punch, first of the month – can’t believe we’re in July already! Let’s start the month with a workout that reminds us of nouns and noun phrases.

What is your new healthy choice for today? (Don’t forget that you can look back to Monday’s post for ideas!)

Maths:

Year 3: In this lesson you will learn some efficient methods for solving addition and subtraction problems using three-digit numbers. The activities will teach you written methods for addition and subtraction, often called ‘column methods’. However, sometimes it makes more sense to solve some additions and subtractions using a mental method. The problems in this lesson all involve adding or subtracting multiples of ten, and the numbers are chosen carefully so that you can use a mental method to solve them.

Year 4: In today’s video lesson, we are looking at subtracting fractions.

Reading: Here is today’s video lesson and activity. Today we are answering comprehension questions. The answers are on the last two pages so make sure you don’t peek!

Science: This week we are learning about the life cycle of a plant. Here’s the video lesson from Oak National Academy. (I think I might have posted the wrong one last week – sorry!)

Don’t forget, we LOVE to see what you have been getting up to. Remember to email us and let us know!
