Year 4 Home Learning- Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips W/E 8.11.19


 

In Maths- We have been looking at 'best value' for money on fireworks- they have found this quite tricky, so if you are able to practise some, it will really help.

For example, I want to buy ten rockets- 1 costs £2, 10 cost £24- which is best value?


 A bit more challenging would be- Rockets- £6.99 for a pack of 10, buy two packs for £15.00 or £8.00 for a box of 10, buy one get one half price. 


Next week we will be looking further at a bar chart. Have a look at https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Flash.aspx?f=barchartv2. I have given them all a piece of graph paper, can they collect some data of their choice, favourite crisp flavours, sports etc and create a bar chart to represent it. Bring them back on Monday to share. Remind them to include all necessary features, title, labelled axis etc. 


In Literacy¸ we wrote a diary entry about Guy Fawkes, imagining we were one of the plotters against the King. Could they write a diary entry for one of their weekend days, or create a simple comic strip illustrating and narrating the story. 


In Technology- we started to look at a Roman aqueduct and the style in which they were built. Next week we will be designing and making our own in small groups and testing it carries water. If they could collect some materials that would be great, e.g cardboard, tubes, etc.

 

Next week in ICT we will be looking at asking yes/no questions and following a branching database, you could play a game where you have a number of items in a group together, e.g hair brush, saucepan, jumper, pen… and ask someone yes/no questions as to which one they had chosen. Is it blue? IS it hard? Can it be used for cooking? Can you wear it?

 

Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips

Please encourage your child to learn any words they have in the Christmas play.  We will start rehearsals next week as there are only 4 weeks before the performances.  I will send out costume letters soon.  Also remember spellings and timetables you have to learn at home.  Please find the definitions of each of your spellings and write a sentence using your spelling.  This week we will be learning the 6 times table – remember quick recall is really important and will help further your maths.  There are lots of games on mymaths that can help you learn your tables.

Home learning

Dosbarth Mr Green

Week Commencing 4/11/19

 

Literacy: Big write for next Friday is to create a poster for Children in Need.

 

Numeracy: 

This week we have been adding and subtracting near multiples of ten.

Example: 53 + 29 =

                 53 + 30 = 83 then take away  so the answer is 82


                  44 + 51 =

                  44 + 50 + 1 ( add the tens firstly then the units) = 95


                  47 - 9 =

                  47 - 10 = 37 (as I've taken one too many I will give one back) so its 38


                   54 - 32 =

                   54 - 30 = 24 then take another 2 away. So it's 22


You can progress to 3-digit numbers:  164 - 39, etc


Thank you for your continued support

Year 1 Homework blog

Good morning,

 

This week in year 1 we moved away from volcanoes to look at hedgehog safety during bonfire night and how to keep hedgehogs safe in general. We made a hedgehog hotel in our grounds and I apologise in advance if they want to go digging up the garden to create their own hedgehog home.

The following weeks will also see a shift in focus due to various topical events such as remembrance day, children in need ETC. Next Friday is fancy dress to support Children in need. A suggested donation of £1 would be welcome and I have been told that children bring it in on the day. There is no theme but if your struggling for ideas then anything spotty/Pudsey works well.

 

Next week for maths wen will be looking at “skip counting” in 5s (the precursor to times tables.) For homework can you practise counting in 5s with your children. To help them you could use a interactive number square ( https://www.topmarks.co.uk/learning-to-count/paint-the-squares) or write the numbers down and show them the pattern of counting in 5s. (Alternating 5s and 0s)

 

Here is a free online game  https://www.topmarks.co.uk/ordering-and-sequencing/chinese-dragon-ordering

Here is a counting by 5s song by pinkfong, the same company as baby shark, which may help them show some enthusiasm. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5g8iu0SQJoY

You could try dot to dot in 5s. This link includes some free examples. (Involves printing and https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-t-12515-counting-in-5s-dot-to-dot-sheets-pirates

 

Kind regards,
