Class 4 - Monday 30th March

Good Morning Class 4

Happy Monday! smiley I hope you all had a lovely and restful weekend.               

The first thing I'd like you to do this morning, is watch this clip:

Now hopefully, that should have cheered you all up! I love Sebastian!                                                       
There were a number of excellent pieces of work produced on Friday, and Purple Mash worked too! Juliet and Josh's spelling stories were brilliant as was Joel's setting description. Now I've been able to read them, Ella and Tom C's persuasive writing pieces were wonderful too. Last week, Charlotte, Adrian and Asa spent a lot of time on Sumdog completing maths questions - well done you. There were many other super pieces of work that I haven't mentioned so well done all. I look forward to seeing what you produce this week. 
Hopefully you found the answers for the arithmetic paper at the end of it, on Friday. If not, and you would like to find out how you did then they are at the very end of the paper you did. 

These are your tasks for today. Remember, you can do the tasks in any order. yes As Purple Mash didn't work well last Monday, I have only used it for two games today, and if you have trouble with the website don't worry too much. 


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:                                                                                                                                                 

Please login to Times Tables rockstars. I would like you to practise your times tables for 15 minutes.                                                                                                                                                
Then I would like you to work on Sumdog for 15 minutes. I will be checking your scores!

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 practise the Year 5 and 6 common exception words in your exercise books. Spend around 15 minutes on this task. Ensure that you choose spellings that you don't already know how to spell. 

  -Year 5 and 6 common exception words.doc-  

If you're used to doing the high frequency words instead, here is a list of the second 100 high frequency words for you to carry on with.

  -2nd 100 high frequency words .pdf-  

Grammar task:

I have added two grammar games to your 2do folder for today. One is called 'synonyms and antonyms', and the other is called 'story sentences', which is about adding correct punctuation marks into sentences. You don't need to hand these in to me; I will get a notification to tell me you have completed them. It will tell me how long each game took you and your score so take care with them both and don't rush. You need to make sure you read the sentences carefully in 'story sentences'. The link is below:

Writing task:                                                                                  

Following on from your setting descriptions on Friday, today I would like you to write a character description. I have attached a document with images of ideas for characters which you can choose one from, or you can create one in your imagination. 
When writing this, remember that you need to describe the appearance of the character as well as their personality. Splitting this into two paragraphs might be a good idea.  
I would like you to write these in your exercise books. When writing, I want you to include figurative language and think about: using correct and advanced punctuation; varying your sentence openers; and using single clause sentences for impact. You want to engage the reader so that they want to find out more.

Learning project:

This focus for this week's project is 'the area we live'.

Your learning aims to provide you with opportunities to learn more about the area in which you live. It may focus on our local area, famous people, key landmarks and links to cities. Please choose one of the following to do this afternoon:

An Architectural Masterpiece- ​ You can design a new building/structure to inspire the residents of our local town or city. You must research, plan, design and then make a model f it using materials from around the house. Create a criteria for success and then evaluate your model against this. 
 ● Promoting Your Local Area-​ Imagine a visitor from another country is coming to stay in Ripon or Harrogate for a week. You really need to impress them by showing them the most interesting places in our local area. Where would you take them each day? Plan the itinerary for each day detailing the transport that will be taken to each location, how long will be spent there, what will be eaten and any activities that may take place. 
Where in the World? - ​Have a look on Google Earth or Google Maps to look at the geographical features of Ripon, Aberystwyth and Perth (Australia). How are these places the same? How are these places different? What impacts the similarities and differences? After, you can then choose three different places and do the same thing. Do you notice any patterns?
 ● Places of Worship - ​Ripon Cathedral, Sawley Methodist Church, The Sikh Temple in Leeds, The Bilal Masjid Mosque in Leeds and The Leeds Hindu Mandir and  are ​all places of worship in our area. Can you order them on a timeline based on the year they were built? Why do they think some of these places were built more recently, whilst others were built many years ago? Do they think the society they live in has had an impact on this? 

 ● Rowntrees: A timeline- ​the Rowntree family had and still have a significant impact on York. You can create a timeline detailing the history of the company. You should include dates and details of significant events. How did Rowntrees impact the local area positively? How does Rowntrees impact the local area positively now? 

 ● Graffiti Art -​ Has graffiti always been seen in a positive light? How have attitudes towards graffiti changed over time? Is all graffiti good? Think about these questions and then design your own graffiti art using paper and crayons or felt tips.

Have a great day everyone, and I look forward to seeing your work. 

Take care 

Mrs Barker smiley
