Year 4 Home Learning 18.5.20
Hello again to all our Year 4 children, parents and carers!
We hope you are taking care, keeping busy and enjoying home learning.
From now on, to keep finding links simple, each week we will add a new page with the work focused for the week on whilst leaving the original home learning page still online for additional tasks to complete and keep busy with if you choose to.
It has been great to see some of the things our Year 4 children have been up to whilst learning from home. The pictures we have received have been uploaded on the 4H and 4P class pages. Please do keep sending in what you are all up to as I am sure your friends are as interested as we are!
As always, if you would like to ask us a question or chat about any tasks that have been set, please message us via the e-schools website and we will get back to you as soon as we can. The children also have their own account on this and are welcome to ask questions or simply let us know what they are up to and how they are getting on.
Below, we have outlined the tasks we have set for this week. More detailed information can be found further down this page. It is important to note that in addition to these tasks, we do expect that all children read every day, practice TT Rockstars as often as possible and most importantly, have some fun! We recognise that most of these tasks involve the use of technology. This is because in regards to Purple Mash and TT Rockstars, we can track the work that children have completed. In addition to this, we have tried to set children exciting tasks such as El Dorado and to cover a range of curriculum areas. If this is causing an issue, please get in touch and we will try our best to source the relevant paper copies for you.
Take care everyone. Don’t forget to send us your photos!
Miss Philip and Mr Hodges.
Monday – Use your imagination and the clues you can gather from the picture and answer the questions
What might have happened on June 11th, 1911?
What stories have their fathers told them?
Who is sitting around the campfire?
Why are they out in the woods?
What is the noise that they have heard?
Was it part of their imaginations, or something more sinister?
Tuesday – Continue the story from this point thinking about what happens to the people
It had been many years since the shrill shriek of a steam train puffing along the track had been heard in these parts.
The Northern Railroad had been discontinued after the great disaster on June 11th, 1911. Ever since that day, the Railroad company had been nothing but a distant memory, a story to be told around the campfire late into the night.
As the group sat around their newly constructed camp, listening to the crackle of the flames as they licked up into the night, their minds wandered back to the stories they had heard from their fathers. So absorbed were they in the moment, and the mesmerizing glow of the fire, that it was hard to tell if the shrill shriek coming from the distance was part of their imaginations…
Wednesday – Today we would like you to describe the setting using expanded noun phrases. Look at last week’s page for further support.
Write one for the different parts of the picture.
e.g – The warped wooden rails with rusting metal beams.
If you want a challenge, write it as a paragraph and use a thesaurus (you can find these online) to find more powerful adjectives.
Thursday – Today we would like you to create two characters that could be in this story. Draw a picture of them and describe them with labels around your picture. Think about their personality, looks and what they like to do.
You could use expanded noun phrases and commas in a list to describe them.
E.g The short boy with ripped clothes.
The boy had a green hat, three quarter shorts and dirty boots.
Friday – Today you can use your imagination to write the prequel of the story. This means write the story before the story starter we used on Monday. You can use your imagination to think about why the characters you made yesterday find themselves in that setting. This does not have to make sense with your continued story from Tuesday if you don't want.
How did they get there?
How far away from home are they? Was it a easy journey?
Where were they planning on going?
Try to use some direct speech for your characters you have made to have a conversation in your story.
