Hi everyone, I hope you have had a lovely, restful half term in the sunshine! Hasn’t the weather been beautiful?! As some of you know, it was my birthday recently and my friend bought me the best gift, it kept me busy all of last week. I am super proud of myself, what have you enjoyed this week?
Home Learning starts again this week 📆
I have amended the overview of what we will be recapping and consolidating for this half term!
Here it is: Year 4 – Weekly Learning Overview v2
For Summer 2, our topic should have been Abracadabraaaa! (all about magic and things changing), so home learning logs will contain activities linked to this AND topics we have covered in school. Remembering to keep our sticky knowledge that we have already learnt!
This week’s focus is Rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1,000. Below is a video to help you recap the method and a worksheet.
As you had all been working extra hard on your arithmetic skills, I have created an arithmetic paper for you to work through at your own pace. If you would like a challenge, set yourself a 20 minute timer.
Extra Challenge: If you fly through these, I would like you to use all of the skills we have recapped recently (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) to create a worksheet that I could complete!
This weeks focus is ‘Short Response’ questions looking at the skills of RETRIEVAL, VOCABULARY and INFERENCE.
This week’s focus is a recap of fronted adverbials
✏ Here are some resources to help you with Fronted Adverbials
Over the next two weeks we will be looking at writing a setting description. First, you will be deconstructing a setting description through a narrative. We have looked at this piece of writing when we were reading ‘The Midnight Fox’. I would like you to go through each paragraph, what can you find that we have learnt in Year 4?
This week’s is the prefix Auto- (Meaning ‘Out’)
