Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

 

 

Mr. A. Mackie (Y4  teacher)

Mrs. D. White (PPA teacher)
Mrs. J. Jones (TA)

Year Four is the second year in Key Stage Two; we use cross-curricular projects in which subjects overlap to reinforce and compliment each other.  Each project is planned carefully to meet the needs and capabilities of the child.  We aim to develop the knowledge, concepts, skills and attitudes necessary for your child's whole development. We embrace 'Learning Without Limits' where children are not put into boxes but are given the space to grow and to surprise themselves (and us) about what they can achieve.

Home Learning Term 6 wc 8th June 2020

Hi all, 

I hope you are all well and have had a nice week. Please see below the resources home learning this week. As mentioned in an email and over the zoom chat the other day, I will now be setting and looking at your home learning each week, so please continue with all the fantastic work I have heard you have been doing. 

Also, as per the email that has been sent, remember you no have access to Bug club once again and can log on to read a variety of different books and keep working on your comprehension! Please email us for more information/help if needed

Mr Mackie has also asked me to set you a little blog challenge - he would like you to answer the question "How have you been keeping active?" with a photo posted to the blog (details above), showing and explaining the different ways you have been keeping active at home. We can't wait to see what you have been up to!

If you need any help with the home learning, to send over what you have been doing or anything else, please contact me on the Y4@worleburyprimary.com email . 

Stay safe

Mrs Dawes

Home Learning Term 6

Hello all, I hope you are staying safe and are all enjoying this time to spend with your family. Over the next term, learning will continue to be uploaded weekly. Please email the class email if you are unable to access any learning or need a paper copy to be picked up at school. 

In addition to the weekly learning, there is a project grid full of different activities for you to complete. Please try to complete 2 a week. If you have additional ideas, please share them on the class blog. 

Research  

Research different types of pollution. You can write some key facts about different pollutions. Alternatively, you can create a picture with labels for the different types of pollution.

Ducksters

Britannica 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Recycling

Every week, help an adult organise and put out the recycling.

Additionally, you could keep a tally of the different things you are recycling.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How can I help?

List down 8 different ways you could help protect the environment. Try doing a different one each week.

Examples

Only walking and cycling.

Making sure lights are turned off when leaving a room.

Try playing with recyclable toys or those that at not made out of plastic.

Planting a bulb each day for a week.

Creating a compost heap and emptying the kitchen compost bin.

 

 Poster

Create a poster to encourage people to recycle more. Think about a slogan (recycle now! Don’t Bin it Recycle it). Include bold colours and pictures.

 

 

Noise Pollution

Sit outside and write down/ draw every noise you can hear. Then, group these into man-made and natural. Try doing this at different times of the day. Is it the same or different?

Electricity Free Day

Plan a day that involves not using electricity. Record what you do throughout the day on a timetable or in a diary entry.   

 

 

Creation Story

Read a version of the Biblical Creation Story. Can you create a cartoon to retell the story. At the end of the cartoon, explain how this is linked to looking after the world.

http://www.dltk-bible.com/genesis/chapter1-cv.htm

 

Prayer

Write a prayer around pollution and looking after the environment. Remember in the prayer you could discuss how you are going to help.

 

 

Music

Create a song or a rap about the importance of recycling. You could include musical instruments that you have made out of different recycled materials.

 

Plastic Hunt

You must do this with an adult, wear gloves and look out for sharp objects.

Clean up some rubbish at the beach or in the woods. Can you clean up a small area? Look carefully for the micro plastics.

 

 

 

Mindfulness Colouring

Colour in the recycling mindfulness sheets. An additional activity is for you to create your own mindfulness environmental sheet. This could be done by drawing the outline and then giving it to someone in your family to colour in.

 

Environment Game

Play the environment board game.

Create a board game that helps teach people about different types of pollution and how they could help. An idea: it could involve counters getting from one side to the other and collecting as much litter up as possible.

Gardening

Look around your garden or an outdoor space. Look at the different types of habitats you have. How could you help nature? Over this term, plan, design and then create a natural way to help nature? You could plant flowers to help butterflys, you could create a leaf pile for insects to hide in, you could create a bug hotel or you could create a mini pond out of a container to allow creatures to have a drink.

Art

Create an environmental superhero with an environmental superpower.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Greta Thurnberg

Research who Greta Thurnberg is and create a profile about her.

Term 5 Week 1

I hope you all had a restful Easter. Below you will find the home learning for this week. Remember if you are unsure of anything or if you or your child is struggling to understand the activities, please don't hesitate to email. I will try to respond promptly to any queries. I will also be phoning every family to check in how home learning is going and trying to speak to every child as well. 

Learning from home can be a challenge for all. I have created a checklist for the children to use independently in order for them to see what they have been given to do each week. This will hopefully encourage them to become more independent. Here it is.  Here is an editable version. The children can colour in the grids as they complete an activity or you could also use stickers. 

English

Spelling- This week's spellings all have inter-   prefix. 

Look, say, cover, write, check        Handwriting      Left-Handed Version       Word search        Game

Writing Activity- This weeks writing activity is to write a non-chronological report on your favourite animal. This is a fact file all about your favourite animal. Here is a planning sheet for you to complete before writing it. Here is a WAGOLL to help you.  Art- For art this week, please draw a picture of your animal to go alongside your report. 

SPAG

Please complete these different SPAG activities. Here is a guide.             Here is the answers. 

https://www.theschoolrun.com/primary-grammar-glossary-for-parents This a useful website. 

Reading Comprehension- This could be included in one of your daily readings. Make sure you look back at the text when answering the questions.  Here is the Reading Text  and here is the questions. 

Maths- There are three Arithmekit sheets to complete. 1 each day. There is also a link to a web page to support you for each day's learning. 

      Day 1                           https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zsjqtfr/articles/z9w3g82

      Day 2                           https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zsjqtfr/articles/zsbd7p3

      Day 3                           https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zh8dmp3/articles/zpx2qty

 Problem Solving- Here is two solving problem activities- remember these should be challenging and need some perseverance. 

      Decatree- You might want to seek support from an adult for this one.                                                                        Four Digit Targets

Numbots- It is fantastic to see how many people logged in and played TTrockstars. This week, I would like you to spend at least 10 minutes a day on Numbots (same username and logins). At the end of the week, I will be sending out certificates to those who have done especially well on Numbots. 

Science- This term we are going to look at Animals and their habitats. There is a powerpoint to read and then an activity to complete. 

Term 3 Weeks 1-2: What changed between the Stone Age to the Iron Age? 

For the first two weeks, Year 4 will be undertaking a mini-project looking at what changes occurred during pre-historic times. In the first week, the children will take part in activities where they will learn about how people lived during the Stone Age. In the Second Week, the children will look at what impact metal tools had on the lives of people during pre-historic times. 

Here are the children taking part in cave painting underneath their tables and some of the finished cave paintings. 

       

 The children also had a Stonehenge building contest. Here is a picture of the class building them and the finished examples. 

 

Terms 3 &4: Were the Vikings Vicious? 

Welcome back to a fresh new year and decade. Over the next two terms, the children will be studying the Vikings. The children will specifically be looking at whether or not the Vikings were a force for good or had a negative impact.  

Terms 1 & 2: Can I walk like an Ancient Egyptian?

 Welcome back to school and to Year Four!  This week was our induction week with a whole school focus of 'Take One Picture'.  The children had one picture from which we looked at how 'to find greatness'.  We then got together with the rest of the school at the end of the week in order to share out thoughts and artwork. After the induction week, we will begin the Year 4 curriculum. This term project is titled, "Can I walk like an Ancient Egypt?"

Week 8

Our science topic this term has involved looking at states of matter. Part of this learning involved the children classifying different materials into which state of matter they belong. To finish off the learning the children explored a non-newtonian liquid that sometimes might be classified as a liquid and at other times would be classified as a solid. This non-newtonian liquid was cornflour and water. The children experimented through hitting it, picking it up and thoroughly enjoyed it. 

Week 5,6,7

The children have been thoroughly engaged in the Ancient Egyptian writing process. Here are some pictures of making papyrus. 

          

 

They also practiced being archaeologists. 

           

Week 3

In Year 4 this week, the children have been bringing in their fantastic and creative home learning. Here is just some of the fantastic examples. 

             

In Science, we have been classifying solids and liquids. The children examined different materials and discussed what properties made them a liquid and what properties made them a solid. We had a great class discussion on jelly and shaving foam. We decided that they had properties that could make them a liquid or a solid. 

Week 2

"Entering the Tomb"

In Year 4, we became intrepid archaeologists. We entered the tomb of an unknown person. The children explored the artifacts they discovered inside. The children then interviewed each other about their experience of the tomb.  Here are some pictures of the tomb, its contents, the children entering the tomb and interviewing each other. 

            

 

          

 

Week 1

Here is our artwork with words that are needed in order to find greatness.

          

 

In Maths, we also looked at reasoning. The children were given some clues. They needed to use these clues to find a solution that was made out of coloured blocks. Here are some pictures of the groups working together to solve the problem. 

                                        

Academic Year 2018-2019

Terms 5 & 6: How Green is our Planet?

During our first week back, we will be delivering our leaflets to ask our local community to help us out with our greenhouse project.  If you can come with us to deliver leaflets on the afternoon of Thursday 6th June then please pop  in and see Mrs. Gifford or the school office, thank you.

Visit our new Worlebury School Year 4 Blog!> 

We will start by looking at our planet during the Stone-Age and focusing on the Raymond Briggs book, 'Ug, Boy Genius of the Stone Age'.  We will then move forward to the present day to see how we are affecting the environment today and what we can do to have a positive impact on how green our planet is.  A big part of our project will be the designing and building of our environmentally friendly bottle greenhouse which will form part of a new 'nature area' at Worlebury School. 

'THE GOOD SAMARITAN' ART

We are thinking about the question, 'What can we learn from the life and teaching of Jesus?' in RE this term.  We explored our own opinions of Jesus and looked and those of others. We then listened to the story of The Good Samaritan and reflected on what Jesus was teaching through this.  We studied a picture from the Parables Project called 'What Would You Do?' which is a modern interpretation of the story. We then created our own artwork to reflect our own thoughts of a modern version of The Good Samaritan story.
