Welcome to the Year 4 home learning page.
On this page you will find the work which we would like you to complete while the school is closed on Tuesday 3rd October. For these tasks, you can complete them on paper or use your homework books. You can bring your work into school when we reopen.
For Maths, please click on the following link to access a lesson via the BBC bitesize website. The lesson focuses on adding 4-digit numbers: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zf72pv4/articles/z6vr47h Work your way through the activities on this website before completing the worksheet below. You can decide whether you would like to try the mild, spicy or hot version.
For Reading, there is a comprehension activity about superheroes. Read through the text then answer the questions. You can decide whether you would like to try the mild, spicy or hot version.
In English, we have been upleveling our sentences turning boring regular sentences into SUPER SENTENCES.
Take this image, for example I could say:
An otter sits in a classroom.
But on its own, that sentence is boring. What if I said:
The brown, fluffy, attentive otter sits in a tidy classroom on a cold winter's day.
Suddenly I have a super sentence.
Task: I have asked AI to generate some images connected to our class text book Cinnamon + a squirrel and otter image for fun.
For each image write a super sentence following the mild, medium spicy instructions below. I have included two word mats to help you with ideas.
Mild: Write a sentence for each image and use as many adjectives (describing words) as you can in your sentence.
Medium: Write a sentence for each image and use as many adjectives (describing words) as you can in your sentence. Also, include a prepositional phrase (a prepositional phrase tells us how, where and when something is happening).
Spicy: Pick one image and write a paragraph describing everything you can see using adjectives and prepositional phrases.
Finally, in art we have been studying the work of Wassily Kandinsky have a look at his most famous painting “Squares with Concentric Circles”
Your task is to create your own version of this painting, but you can use any colours you want.
Watch this video on the colour wheel for some ideas on how some colours work better together than others:
You can use any type of pencil/felt tip/paint you might have but experiment with different colours inside the different circles.
