Activities for Thursday
To write a scene from a play
You are going to be writing your own short play. It needs to be based on either an original idea you have or you can think about a story or fairy-tale you like which you could turn into a play. While you’re doing your planning think carefully about the features of a play.
It is up to you how detailed you would like to go with your play. You could just write a scene or you could write a short play like Little Red Riding Hood.
I have included a template to help and a checklist to see that you have included the features.
First you might want to complete the plan that you will use to write your play.
Then you are going to either write a scene from a story or a short play.
I have included an example below of what your finished piece of work should look like.
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!
Today we’re continuing our work on decimals moving onto to comparing and ordering decimal numbers.
There is a PowerPoint for you to go through which should help with your learning and if you need a song to brighten up your maths enjoy the crocodile https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6Efzu2slaI
There are three levels of challenge for you to choose between in maths today.
Challenge 1 you should all be able to have a go at, challenge 2 is a little more challenging and challenge 3 is tricky.
If you finish all that and want more?! There is an alien extension for you to have a go at.
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
To start with talk about what you have learnt recently about mountains.
Think about what is it like in the mountains?
Look at pictures of the Alps and the Great Dividing Range – compare the climates
You should notice that the temperature gets colder the higher the altitude gets.
Mountains receive more rainfall and some mountains have a snow line and have snow on the top of them all year round.
Today you are going to be completing a fact file on mountains and the weather and climate on mountains. You will need to choose between challenge 1 and 2. If you would like an extra challenge, challenge two also includes nature on the mountains.
Here are some links that will give you information…
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 5 today.
Alternatively, we would ask that you download an educational based app or play an educational game write a review of it. What was good about it? What do you think needs improving? Would you recommend it to someone else?
We have also attempted to create a blog on PurpleMash. At the moment, we thought this might just be a nice way to give everyone a place to interact and share some things that make them smile. https://www.purplemash.com/blog#/app/blog/601ae25c69454749ea483f00/ why not have a look at our first post.
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.
We miss you and can’t wait to see you soon!
Team Year 4!
