Activities for Thursday


To hook a reader

Let's look at an 'elevator pitch'
Politicians are trained to provide these as they are very often asked to comment on something important but only given 30 seconds to 1 minute to do so.
As a warm-up activity you need to sum up in 30 seconds why our school is a good one to attend.

Today you are going to write your opening to hook the reader you need to include:

•         What the place is
•         Its unique selling point
 •        A couple of questions to make the reader think about why they would enjoy it
•         Sum it up


For example:

Disneyland Paris isn't called the happiest place on earth for no good reason. This life-changing experience can be found in the heart of France. Are you a thrill seeker who is hunting for the ride of their life? Or are you looking to meet your heroes like Mickey, Minnie and Donald? Or are you a fan of the animated magic seen on the big screen? If any of these sound like you, you need to make your way to this wondrous adventure right away! Disneyland Paris is waiting for you!


Choose 10 words from the 3/4 word list and use them in a sentence. If you want to do a little extra you might want to do some rainbow writing, pyramid spelling, an acrostic poem or a nonsense story. 


It's Thursday so that means it's time to DEAR - drop everything and read! You should, at some point during the day, drop whatever it is you're doing, get comfy and read for 20 minutes.
If you end up somewhere good send us a pic – we’d love to see what you’ve been reading!


With the maths today you’re continuing your work on line graphs but you’re looking at graphs that have a consistent relationship which means there will often be a diagonal line. You need to look carefully at the x and y axis and see where the two meet.

The graph has also been made a little more tricky as there is more than one line so you need to look at the colours carefully.

If you finish there is an extension activity to help improve your confidence with line graphs.

If you want to practise your times tables why not have a go at TTRS or one of these games: 


To start with go back over what we started last week think about what a mountain range is and what a summit is. Do you remember? What are the seven summits?

Click on the ground height map where are the highest areas of ground in the UK? Use the key to help.

Where do you think the highest peak in the UK might be located? Why?

Look at:

Which are the highest mountains? Where are they?

Use google earth to locate these ranges: Mourne Mountains, Snowdonia, Grampian Mountains, Lake District, Pennines, Ben Nevis, Snowdon, Scafell Pike,-2.99247557,138.90697181a,935283.23276058d,35y,-0h,0t,0r

What are the UK’s highest mountain? How is land height shown on maps?

Contour lines show us how high the land is. On most maps they are marked at 5m or 10m intervals. The closer together the lines are, they steeper the slope will be.

 Your task is to label the map – there are two levels for you to choose between.



Today’s computing is going to be on PurpleMash.
To help with this we are including some step by step instructions for you to have a go at – as they explain them A LOT better than we can.
You will be moving onto Lesson 2 today. There will be 2dos to support this on PurpleMash and the instructions are in the document below.


If you feel like you’re missing your friends – why not send them an email?
On PurpleMash you can use: to send messages to anyone in Year 4.


Please remember to send us any work you complete at some point during the day on either PurpleMash or through to either or


We miss you and can’t wait to see you soon!

Team Year 4!
