Getting Ready For Year 4

 Hi, it was great to see do many of you last week and I am really looking forward to meeting up again in September. I know you have been working really hard to keep up and it is time for a holiday. However if you have time and would like to be on the ball in September, completing some of the tasks below over the summer will really help. You can do a lot of it without writing anything down but if you prefer worksheets I will have some of those prepared too.

 

  1. Read a book and be ready to come back to school and talk about it. If you wanted you could write me a book review or even a VLOG!.

 

  1. Get really good at all your tables. We have the national tables test in Year 4 and the children need to know all their tables for then

 

 

  1. Make sure you know what the following are: Noun; Verb, Adjective, Adverb, adverbial, preposition, determiner, co-ordinating conjunction and subordinating conjunction. (There is a grammar sheet explaining these in your pack)

 

  1. Practice the Year 3 maths in the revision book to help you recall this work so you will be ready for Year 4
  1. I have attached both the Year 3/4 spellings for you to practice

 

  1. I have attached some information about our topics next year. Have a look see how many facts you can learn for the start of next term.

Year 3 Home learning Week Starting 13th July

Once again thanks for keeping in touch and letting me know any problems you have been having. Don’t worry if you need more time to ensure your child learns and understands the work being set. This is more important than finishing it all. If you are concerned by a particular area can I point you in the direction of the Oak Academy website this has lessons and activities on a wide variety of subjects. If your child is struggling when working on their year group, try a lower group to begin with. This also helps those of you struggling to juggle home and work as it gives teacher interaction.

Maths
This week’s tables are the 4 times table. If you know this off by heart, try the 40x table or the 400 times table.
This week we are continuing looking at shapes. This week we will investigate further into acute angles and obtuse angles and revise our knowledge. We will then look at perpendicular lines. The best way to do this would be through the oak academy lessons linked below.

Maths

This week’s tables are the 3 time table. If you know this off by heart, try the 30x table or the 300 times table.

This week we are going to start looking at shapes I will attach a sheet with the names of all the “D shapes the children need to know the names of – it is worth making sure they have a good knowledge of this. This week we will look at angles in shapes and learn about right angles, acute angles and obtuse angles. We will try to order these. The best way to do this would be through the oak academy lessons linked below.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-identify-and-recognise-angles

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-recognise-right-angles

 

If not, I have attached a presentation. There are also some worksheets

English

We are looking at instructions this week. Oak Academy has a series of 5 lessons which are excellent and will really help you. The links has Year 3 Year 4 and Year 5 so if one feels a little hard or easy have a go at one of the others. If you didn’t start this last week then don’t try and do them all this week just make sure you have learnt what is in the first couple of lessons. If you have done the first lessons then finish off this week

https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-3/subjects/english

https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-4/subjects/english

https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-5/subjects/english

 

If you are not doing the Oak Academy work then follow the instructions below.

 

  1. Can you work out the following words of the week: luxurious, relish, torment

 

Write the word

Write it’s meaning

Write some synonyms (words which mean the same (Use a thesaurus))

Write some antonyms (Words which mean the opposite)

 

  1. Look at how the instructions you read last week are set out and the language used
  2. Write a set of instructions in a similar way to this.

You could tell me how to play your favourite game: You could tell me what the game is and why it is so good. Then you could tell me what you need to play it. You could then use some imperative verbs and adverbs to tell me how to play the game.

  1. Draw some diagrams to support your instructions
  2. Send in your instructions so I can read them!

 

Science

We are going to look at animals and their habitats. First of all, look at the power point attached to explain habitats and why animals have chosen live where they do. You could go on a bug hunt or spot birds and discuss where they live and why. You could watch some of the following films

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrSWYE37MJs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7jwJ2bI9Lg

and /or look at the power point

Play the matching game – matching the animals to their habitat.

You can then choose to do one of the comprehensions on beach habitats the one star comprehension is the easiest and the three star is the most challenging. One and two star are Year 3 standard.

and/or create your own animal for a habitat of your choice

 

 

 

Music / Art

  1. Listen to the attached music which is Winter by Vivaldi. Can you name the musical instruments?
  2. Can you tell someone how the music is trying to represent the season – the words on the screen might help.

Year 3 Home learning

 

Once again thanks for keeping in touch and letting me know any problems you have been having. Don’t worry if you need more time to ensure your child learns and understands the work being set. This is more important than finishing it all. In fact, this week I have cut the amount of Maths and English we are expecting to allow you to have some catch up time. If you are concerned by a particular area can I point you in the direction of the Oak Academy website this has lessons and activities on a wide variety of subjects. If your child is struggling when working on their year group try a lower group to begin with. This also helps those of you struggling to juggle home and work as it gives teacher interaction.

 

Maths

First of all, make sure you have finished the work previously set on time and statistics. If you need more practice use Oak Academy.

The tables this week are the 6x table. If you know this go beyond 12 or try the 60 or even 0.6 times table – make sure you also know the division facts to go with it.

 

Also practice number bonds upto 20 so choose a number e.g  17 and find out how many ways you can make it. E.g. 4 +13 = 17 and 7 + 17 = 17. Then practice with someone who will give you one of the numbers and you have to give the other. A good knowledge of this really helps with harder calculations.

Finally try these calculations

32 + 43 =                            67 + 22=              17+56 =               156 + 42=            309 + 134=         237+ 245=

69- 24 =               89 – 34=              148- 45 =             267 – 145=         345 – 182=

Which can you do in your head? Which do you use formal methods for? Explain how you did some of them?

 

English

Again if you wish to carry on and finish the work on information texts that is fine and you will learn more by finishing this that rushing on. We are looking at instructions this week. Oak Academy has a series of 5 lessons which are excellent and will really help you. The links has Year 3 Year 4 and Year 5 so if one feels a little hard or easy have a go at one of the others. There is a lot in these lessons so I suggest you spread them over the next two weeks – I am going to.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-3/subjects/english

https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-4/subjects/english

https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-5/subjects/english

 

 

 

I am going to start some words of the week. For each of the words listed fill in the table below

I am going to start some words of the week. For each of the word do the following:

Write the word

Write it’s meaning

Write some synonyms (words which mean the same (Use a thesaurus))

Write some antonyms (Words which mean the opposite)

 

This week’s words: absurd, porous, obligatory.

 

If you are not following the Oak academy lessons, then on Monday and Tuesday the children should have a go at the reading comprehension attached One star is the simplest and three stars the most difficult. Practice reading it with someone and talking about the vocabulary as well as practicing reading it fluently on Monday. Have a go at the questions on Tuesday. On Wednesday look at the example text again practice reading it through and being fluent. On Thursday can you find all the features of an instructional text? On Friday have a go at the imperative verb exercises.

 

Science

Continuing on from our work on leaves last week we are going to have a look at flowering plants this week Year 3 just need to know the basic parts of a plant – roots, stem, leaves and flower and what they do. Remember it is more important to have learnt and know some things than to have finished everything. Keep testing yourself on what you know. This is best done looking at a flower – it is best just to dig up a dandelion or buttercup. We went for a walk and watched the insects visiting the flowers and discussed this with the children. The worksheet is a Year 4 worksheet but if you complete the first section that is great.

 

Art

Can you sketch a flower or bunch of flowers. If you wish to you could use pencil crayons, water colours or other materials to paint the flower. I have attached a couple of films to watch to help. Number 1 is fairly simple. Number 2 more complicated

Week starting 22nd June

It has been good to hear from so many of you this week. I have seen some great poems and Haikus. Some of you found the Maths a real challenge and thanks for getting in touch to ask for help. It was also good to see some of you face to face when you can to pick up work. If you are looking for something a bit different from the school work why not look at the BBC Bitesize daily and complete some of the challenges set there. This can be accessed on the iplayer. Another good place to look for a change is OAK academy who do a daily schedule of work or lessons on particular subjects. This week's English is on Information texts and there are some lessons for this on Oak Academy. It's great to see children's work on Dojos however if for any reason this is not possible just put up a quick note to let me know what they have done. More importantly let me know if they are struggling with anything.

 

Maths

 

In school this week we have been focusing on our 8 times table. Could you write down as much of your 8 times table as you can in 1 minute remember to write the whole thing - e.g. 3x 8 - 24 not just 24. It doesn't have to be in order so you can write 10x8 =80 first. Now practice for 5 minutes every day and see how many you can do on Friday - let me know how you get on. If this is too easy try going beyond 12 0r try the 80 x table or even the 0.8 times table.

 

The topic booklet is on line graphs. Here are some videos to help (sorry couldn't find any without the accents - if you find anything better let me know) Please don't feel you have to download the booklet most of it you can do directly from a screen.

If you need any more support please get in touch

 

English

This week we are looking at Information Texts (Non Chronological Reports. There are a series of 5 lessons on Oak Academy

 https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-3/subjects/english

These are really good, If you are able I would do these instead of the worksheets below. Start off with the comprehensions. The mini beasts are the easiar ones and the garden birds more difficult. In each case their are three levels. It is worth starting at the easier one and looking to see why the other texts are better.  If you can read the text with your child. Work on expression and fluency. Discuss any words they are unsure about. Repeat this a few times so they become familiar with the text. This will really help with their reading fluency. 

 

If the reading is all they do, that is fine as it is really important that they build up that fluency and vocabulary. In the long run this will help with their writing.

 

Extension

 The children can then have a go at writing their own report on anything they like. If they send it to me I will have a look and see if I can find ways they can make it better. The report should have an introduction about the topic in general and then a subtitle for each paragraph which gives me information about one part of the topic. Look at the texts on the comprehension for guidance. There is a simple planning sheet attached as well as a checklist. 

 

Or

Think of your favorite topic. E.g. Horses or football. Tell me what it is in one sentence.  Describe it in two sentences. Tell me one thing about it in 2 sentences. Tell me another thing about it in another two sentences. Tell me one amazing fact about your topic.

 

 

History

 

Can you put the following historical periods in order (There are some cards for you to down load which may help)

 

Romans        Stone Age      Victorians       Vikings            Anglo Saxons       Dinosaurs     Iron age      Bronze Age   

 Can you choose any one of these and find out some events in the period then put those into a timeline

 

Science

 

Go out and collect as many different leaves from trees as you can. Now can you sort them into big and small leaves. Then split each group into ones with fingers and ones without. Can you think of a third way to sort them? Now use your groups to describe some of the leaves. Can you find out the names of the trees the leaves have come from?

Work Beginning Week  15th June 

Thank you everyone who has been in touch this week. It has been really good to hear from you all. I hope I was of some assistance to those of you who asked for it. If not please get in touch again. 

Maths

This week in Maths we are doing statistics. If you are still struggling with the time work off please feel free to continue with this as it is a very important skill for all children. The booklet provides guidance but if you do need support please ask

 

English

 

This week week we are doing poetry based around the work of the poet Alan Ahlberg. Practice learning the poems out loud. Can you get an adult to show you how to put expression in? Can you act out the poems (you could even make a film of yourself and send it to me!)  The last activity asks you to have a go at writing your own version I would love to see them. As with last week always think have you used the best word could there be a better one? If they give me permission I will share with you some of the ones done in class. A version of these lessons is on BBC Bitesize so a couple of you may have done them already so I will also share a different exercise.

 

Geography

 

In geography this week if you have access to google Earth can you pan down onto Dukinfield and see if you can find your own house? Alternatively you could use google maps. I have also attached an aeriel photograph of the area around the school as well as a map. 

 

What can you spot?

Can you find places that are important to you on both maps?

Can you use the terms left and right and/or North South East and West to describe a route around the area to show people where you live. 

Could you draw your own map of this?

What do you like about where you live?

How would you improve the area where you live?

Work for Week Beginning 8th June

 

Maths

This week we will be doing time. We are going to start off with the basics and move all the way through the whole process of learning to tell the time. The purpose of the unit is to learn how to tell the time. This can be done very practically if you prefer. If your child is struggling with any section just practice that don't try to move on to fast. We want them to master the skill not complete the booklet. Remember any problems get in touch on Dojos. The booklet is attached below.

English

This week we start with a picture and some retrieval and inference questions. Retrieval the answers are straight from the picture. Inference you have to use the picture to work out the answers. This is followed by some work on adjectives, synonyms and prepositions. - Again concentrating on helping the children know what these are and improving their vocabulary. before attempting to go any further. Learning is more important than completing everything. The booklet is attached below.

 

Geography

 

We are going to start with a local Geography quiz - who in each Year group can answer the most questions? See quiz sheet attached
