Activities for Thursday
English
 

To identify the features of a play

Look again at the ‘Features of a Play’ PowerPoint.

Use the checklist to identify the features of a play.

 

Spelling
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. 

 

Reading
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!

 

Maths
You will be reviewing Equivalent Fractions.

I have attached some videos to get you started. We are looking at finding rules to show how to make different equivalent fractions.

There are 2 different challenges.

If you’d like an extra challenge there are some ‘Fraction Challenge Cards’ as a possible extension activity.


If you want to practise your times tables why not have a go at TTRS or one of these games: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/7-11-years/times-tables 

 

Topic

To start with today can you recap the features of a mountain? How many do you remember?

The earth is made up of an inner core, outer core, mantle and crust. 

Tectonic plates move very slowly and can cause changes in the land. The plates can move away from each other, towards each other or rubbing together

Volcanoes are one way mountains are formed and they erupt when magma escapes through the gaps.

Are all mountains the same?

What types of mountains are there?

They can include: Fold mountains, fault block mountains, dome mountains, volcanic mountains, plateau mountains

There are PowerPoints that will go over all this in greater detail


You have three choices of challenge
Challenge 1: Matching the mountain picture to the correct name and definition.

Challenge 2: Write a definition for each mountain type.

Challenge 3: Draw and write a definition for each mountain type.

 

Computing
Today’s computing is going to be on PurpleMash – we are continuing to look at spreadsheets.
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.

Today you are focusing on Lesson 4.

 

If you feel like you’re missing your friends – why not send them an email?
On PurpleMash you can use:
https://www.purplemash.com/app/links/2email#/inbox 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 opal@galleyhill.herts.sch.uk or coral@galleyhill.herts.sch.uk

 

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

Team Year 4!
