Class 4 - Tuesday 9th June

07 Jun 2020

Good Morning Class 4 

Happy Tuesday everyone. smiley  I hope you all had a good day yesterday?

I think we need a joke this morning! Here we go...

'How do we know that the ocean is friendly?'

(Scroll to the bottom of the page for the answer. smiley)

Thank you to those of you who sent me your work yesterday; I love reading it.  

Time for the results of yesterday's tt rockstars boys v girls challenge. Who do you think won? The boys were winning by almost 1500 points with an hour and a half to go. 

The winner was... THE GIRLS! It was so close, only 222 points between the two groups. Well done girls, and very unlucky boys. It's 2-1 to the girls now. 
These are your tasks for today. Remember, you can do the tasks in any order, and you don't have to do everything if you don't have time. 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!

Reading task:

As you know, reading is the activity that I believe is the most important. I really hope that you are all reading every day.  smiley

As usual, I would like you to read for 30 minutes today. Remember if you have run out of books, then visit the enrichment page on this website, and read the 'what can I read next?' article. 

When you complete a book, you can still do your AR quiz as you normally would at school. Follow the link below:

Maths task: 

Please login to the mymaths website using your login details. You can use the link below:

Year 5s, I have set you an activity for today, which is about lines of symmetry. Year 6s, I haven't set you one as you're all in school with Mrs Lewis. However, if any of you need one for any reason then please send me an email and I can easily set you one. Remember to go through the lesson before you do the questions. If you find it difficult, you can go back to the lesson and have another go at the questions. I will be checking how you're getting on as the day goes on.


Spelling task:       

Today, I would like you to create your own rainforest themed wordsearch.

You should begin by creating a grid, then add in the words you want people to find and then finally you should fill the gaps in with random letters. You can decide whether you give the person completing it the list of words to find, or not!

You can do this by hand or type it up. You could even decorate it with a rainforest theme if you like.  

Writing task: 

Yesterday, you wrote a description of the lush green rainforest. Today, I would like you to write a description of the contrasting image of a rainforest below. This is the Amazon rainforest after deforestation.

As yesterday, you're aiming to put a clear image in the reader's mind of the picture. To do this, you should use all your senses to describe it, and do it in an engaging way using figurative language. 

Take the reader on a walk through this setting; you can write it or type it.


Being kind...

I am leaving this on here as a reminder so that you don't forget to always make the effort to be kind. This could be done in a variety of ways, it could be: some kind words when they are needed; a drink or snack made for someone; tidying up; dishwasher emptying; a message to someone who might be feeling down; a hug (to someone in your household); or something else, whatever it is, it will be worth it to make someone else smile! 

Learning project:

The focus for this week's project is 'rainforests'. 

The projects this week aim to provide opportunities for you to learn more about the world's rainforests. Learning may focus on the plants, animals and insects that inhabit the rainforest, food that originates there and weather patterns. It could look at plants and animals that can be found in the garden too. 

This afternoon, you can either finish the project you started yesterday or you can start a new one. smiley
‚óŹ Deforestation: Destroying Animal Habitats and The Homes of Humans- ‚ÄčDeforestation occurs in ‚Äčrainforests‚Äč throughout the world. Trees are cut down on a huge scale, often to create space for grazing livestock or buildings. As part of this process, ‚Äčanimal habitats and the homes of native people are often destroyed‚Äč. Can you create a poster highlighting the impact of deforestation on both humans and animals. Can you think of possible solutions to some of these challenges and include these solutions on your posters. ‚Äč

 ‚óŹ Welcome to The Jungle: Let Creativity Roar!- ‚ÄčHenri Rousseau was a French painter from the 19th Century who created many paintings inspired by jungles and rainforests, although he never actually visited one. Can you explore ‚Äčfacts about this famous painter and create a jungle/rainforest piece of ‚Äčartwork in his style‚Äč. You could draw, paint or create a collage, depending on the resources you have available at home.              

 ‚óŹ Discovering Far off Lands-
‚ÄčIn the 16th century, Sir Walter Raleigh ‚Äčsailed the Atlantic Ocean in search of a place called El Dorado. His expedition took him to Guyana and his search led him to discover the country’s rainforest. 400 years on, a group of children have taken on the challenge to follow in Sir Walter’s footsteps in their own expedition to Guyana. You should watch the below clip and explore the others on the ‚ÄčBBC Teach website‚Äč. Can you plan your own expedition and consider what you would need to take with you. Alternatively, you could write a first-hand account of your time in the rainforest from the perspective of Sir Walter. Remember that Sir Walter would not have had access to the mod cons we do now.

 ‚óŹ Rumble in The Jungle - Get that Heart Rate Going! - Can you increase your heart rate by challenging yourself and members of the family to mimic the actions of animals which inhabit rainforests. Actions could include: jumping over logs, ducking under branches, high knees through quicksand, running from a tiger etc. Can you record your heart rate (beats per minute) after each activity. Which activity increased your heart rate most? 

 ‚óŹ Deforestation: Our Climate and Our Planet‚Äč- ‚ÄčAs well as impacting on animal habitats and native people, deforestation is also a major contributor towards climate change. Can you create an awareness leaflet about the effects of ‚Äčclimate change on our planet and how ‚Äčdeforestation is contributing towards this‚Äč.

That's it from me today. Remember you can send me any of the work you have done through the Purple Mash email or the class email
Have a great day.

Mrs Barker smileyx
