Starting a new academic year is a time to say farewell to current teachers. It is important to cherish your favourite memories. Create a collage (a collection of drawings) or art piece of your special memories from Year 4. You may choose to draw a favourite lesson, a funny moment with friends, a school trip, or a job role you were proud of. Remember to share your artwork on Google Classroom! 

 

Healthy Mind, Happy Me

 

As we come to the end of the academic year, it is a great time to reflect on all the things you have achieved this year. It has been a strange year but there are lots of things you will have achieved that you should be proud of. We would like you to make your own ‘achievement tree’ filled with all the things you have done and are proud of. This could be whilst you were at school or whilst you have been at home.

 

 

Be as creative as you like and don't forget to share your designs on Google Classroom.

Week 6 - Week Commencing 06.07.2020

 

English

 

'Embarked'

Click the link to watch the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y47-gmGvZhI

 

This animation shows a young boy called Jimmy who loves his treehouse.  It holds many special memories for him.  When Jimmy has to move to the city with his family it's a sad day for both of them.  However, the Treehouse decides to do something about it...

 

After watching the video, complete the following tasks: 

 

Task 1 - Write a newspaper report about a treehouse that's been spotted walking through the city. 

When you are writing your own newspaper article:

  • Make your headline short and snappy. 
  • In the first sentence sum up what the story is about.
  • Write your report in the third person and the past tense.
  • Split your newspaper report up into paragraphs to help the reader clearly understand the information.
  • If you use quotes to make your report more interesting, don't forget to use speech marks!
  • Use a photo with a caption to give the reader more information (you can draw the image)
  • Include interviews from eyewitnesses - who saw the treehouse? how did they feel when they saw it? 
  • Fill your newspaper report with both facts and opinions. Facts give the reader all of the information they need by using the 5 Ws (who, what, where, when and why). 

 

Task 2 - Imagine you are Jimmy or the Treehouse. Write a diary entry from either Jimmy's or the treehouse's perspective. Think about how they would feel about moving, what they would be thinking and what could be happening before they move. 

 

When you are writing your diary entry:

  • Start with 'Dear Diary'

  • Describe the places where the events happened.

  • Write in the past tense.

  • Use pronouns like I, my and me to show that the events happened to you.

  • Talk about how you were feeling or what you were thinking when each event happened.

  • Use interesting vocabulary to make the diary more engaging. 

 

Remember to share your newspapers and diary entries on Google Classroom!

Design and Technology 

 

This week's task is to design and make a Bird Feeder using recycled materials. 

 

You will need:

  • Plastic drinks bottles
  • Yoghurt pots or milk cartons (make sure they're clean)
  • Wire or string
  • Bird seed/food
  • Scissors

 

Step-by-Step Guide: 

1. Cut a hole in the side large enough to allow a free flow of seeds, but in such a way that it won’t all fall out on the ground in the slightest puff of wind, and won’t get wet if it rains

 

2. Make a few small holes in the bottom of your feeder to allow any rainwater to drain away. 

 

3. Hang it with wire, or even strong string from a tree or your washing line.

 

4. If your feeder starts to wear out or the food in it goes mouldy, recycle it and make another one! Remember to keep your feeders well stocked, especially in winter. Birds come to rely on them and will go hungry if you forget.

 

Don't forget to share your bird feeders on google classroom! 

 

Healthy Mind, Happy Me

miss about them. Make sure you save the letter as I am sure they would love to read it when we are back
in school. 
You could write about…

Week 4 - Week Commencing 22.06.2020

 

English

 

Click here to listen to the audiobook for George's Marvellous Medicine. 

 

Task 1: Read/listen through Chapter 1 and answer the following questions: 
1. What did George’s mother say she was going to do? 
2. What did George’s mum tell him not to forget? 
3. What did Grandma say George’s problem was? 
4. What was Grandma’s advice to George? 
5. What did George think about his Grandma’s advice?

6. How does George feel towards his Grandma? What words are used to suggest this? 

 

Task 2: 

Get your saucepans ready, it’s time to make your own magic medicine. Your task is to write a set of instructions on how to make your own medicine. Below is an example of how you should set your work and what features should be included. 

 

 

Things you'll need when writing your recipe: 

  • a title showing what it will make
  • a list of the ingredients, including the quantities needed
  • step-by-step instructions about what to do.
  • Imperative verbs (stir, mix, add) at the beginning of each instruction.
  • Add some adverbs and adjectives (slowly add the gooey paint)
  • To get ideas on what to put in your ‘Marvellous Medicine’ think about things you will find in different parts of your house.

 

Task 3: Create your own similes.

Similes create imagery; this means that they paint instant pictures in our heads. Roald Dahl was very good at using similes to make funny, pop-up pictures: ‘Up she went like a jack-in-the-box’ and ‘she shot out of the roof like a rocket!’ Similes are you used when you want to compare two things and you often use the words 'like' or 'as'. Can you finish the similes below?

  • Grandma’s stomach exploded like...
  • Grandma was as shocked as...

Have a go at creating some of your own similies based on George's Marvellous Medicine.

Topic

 

 

 

Your task this is week is to research, design, and create a roman shield! A Roman shield was called a scutum. It was quite light so that it could be held in one hand. It was curved so that it would fit around a soldier’s body to protect him from blows. It was wide enough so that soldiers could join their scutums together in formation in battle.

 

Click the following link to see an example of how to make a shield: 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIbv92T_Nqc

 

Remember to make sure your design is detailed. Add labels to your design to explain what each element of the design represents. Ensure that your decorative design shows off your strength. Designs often included:

  • wings
  • eagles
  • lightning bolts

Why not research some powerful Roman gods to help you with your design?

 

If you don't have the equipment to make a shield, then don't worry, just do the design part and draw your shield instead! 

 

Remember to take a picture of yourself with you shields and upload them to Google Classroom!

String Telephone Explanation: How Sound Waves Travel


For more information click on the link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yqB2KFwJCo

Sound waves are created when sounds make vibrations in the air. In this activity, your voice vibrates the air inside the cup, which is then transferred to the bottom of the cup. The bottom of the cup passes the sound waves to the string, and so on to the other cup. You can hear surprisingly far using a string telephone if held the right way!

 

If the string is kept tight, the sound waves will travel. If the string is loose, the sound is less. This is because the loose string causes the vibrations to travel all around rather than directly down the string. Try experimenting with different lengths of string, types of string, and types of cups to see which produces the best sound over the longest distance.

 

Have a go at creating your own String Telephones. Create a poster using diagrams and information explaining the science behind the activity. Remember to share you creations on Google classroom!
