Class 4 - Friday 27th March

26 Mar 2020

Good Morning Class 4

Well we have all made it to Friday! smiley Only today's tasks and then you won't have to hear from me for a whole 2 days! smiley  I don't know about you, but I actually think this week has gone quite quickly!    

I hope you like my picture of a smiling pig? It made me smile! smiley                        

There was more excellent work produced yesterday. Charlotte got the highest score during the day on Sumdog - well done you. She was closely followed by Adrian who also got a great score. From the persuasive writing I have been able to read, the stand out pieces came from Sam and Josh. yes

Purple Mash didn't work well yesterday, and I know lots of you had trouble with it. I did too! Many of you found a different way to get your work to me such as by email, which was great. If your work came to me in a way which wasn't Purple Mash, I have sent you a message on there with your feedback. If you were able to send it via Purple Mash you probably won't have feedback from me as yet as at the point of writing this, I still can't view any of the work on Purple Mash. I will give you feedback as soon as it lets me see your work.

The answers to yesterday's grammar activities are below, please mark your own:

  -Year 5 grammar 1 answers.docx-  

  -Year 6 grammar 1 answers.docx-  

These are your tasks for today. Remember, you can do the tasks in any order. yes


Have a look at the below link. There are lots of ideas for different PE type activities that you could do at home; give one a go!

Maths task:                                                                                                                                                 

For today's maths activity, I would like you to have a go at the below arithmetic paper. You can print this off and complete it or you can write your working out and answers in your exercise book. Give yourself 30 minutes to do as many questions as you can. It's completely fine if you don't finish it all and if you do finish before the 30 minutes are up then please check your answers. 


Reading task:                                                                                                                                     

For your reading task today, I would like you to read for 30 minutes. You should use your reading book or the book you used from home at the beginning of the week for the reading task. Remember, when you complete a book, you can still do your AR quiz as you normally would at school. Follow the link below:


Please can you choose 5 words at random from the appropriate spelling sheet below. For most of you, this will be the 'common exception word' sheet. I would like you to find out the meaning of your 5 words so that you fully understand them, and then I would like you to write a short tale or story that includes these 5 words. You need to use them in the correct context so that your tale makes sense. This is the same task as you often do for spelling homework.
I have set up a 2do task on Purple Mash for this so that they can keep me entertained! Please underline the 5 spelling words (or write them in a different colour) and draw me a picture that links to the tale/ story. Remember, it doesn't have to be long but it has to make sense and you have to use the spelling words in the correct context.
If Purple Mash isn't working well then you could always do this task in your exercise book instead.

Writing task:                                                                                  

Today, I would like you to write me a setting description. I have attached a word document below which has four images on it. You can choose one of these pictures to be your setting or you can create one in your imagination.

In your exercise books I would like you to write me a description of it so that the reader feels like they are there. Remember to use the senses and figurative language to do this. You are aiming to take the reader on a walk through the setting, and so they need to follow it and it must make sense to them.

Your setting description only needs to be a paragraph in length, but I am expecting it to be good quality writing. I know what you can do when you're in the classroom.

Learning project:

As you know, the focus for this week's project is 'family'. This afternoon, you can either finish off one of the below projects if you have anything unfinished, you can choose a different one to do if there is something else you really want to have a go at or you can create a piece of art work. It can be any type of art with any type of subject; it doesn't have to be family. Have fun!

Music from the Past - You can research music from the decade your parents, grandparents or other older family members were born. What were the most popular bands or singers during this time? You could perform a song from this decade and create your very own dance routine. Explain how you need to improve your performance in order to achieve your personal best.
 ● Portraits and Photography- You could take portrait photographs of your family members considering light and textures. Following this, you can then use the photographs to draw portraits in pen considering light and tone.
 ● Classification- You could design a classification key based on the simple physical features of your family. We did these in science earlier this year. You can then test out the keys on each member of your family. Only use ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions.
 ● Nature vs Nurture- Think about your appearance, personality and your dreams for the future. How much of this do you believe is determined by your genes? How much of this is determined by your family/upbringing? Decide which traits are due to nature and which traits are due to nurture e.g. hobbies and interests or sense of humour. Try this out on other family members.
 ● Mapping Skills - Identify the countries or cities within the UK where your family members originate from or live. You can then plot these on a map and then create a bar chart to show the number of family members who live/lived in each city/country.

Have a great day everyone and a great weekend. I'll speak to you all on Monday. 

Take care of yourselves.
