Class 4 - Wednesday 17th June

14 Jun 2020

Good Morning Class 4 

Well Class 4, where were your jokes? I didn't recieve any! Not even any bad ones! I was looking forward to them making me smile. Feel free to send me some today if you think of any.


I have got a riddle for you today; it's a good job I wasn't relying on you for the riddle too! 

'What travels around the world but stays in one spot?'

I will let you know the answer tomorrow. Feel free to email me if you think you've worked it out. smiley
                                         
 
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 



PE:  

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:                                                                                                                                                 
 
I have uploaded a maths question sheet for each year group today. Click on the correct one for you below:


  -Year 5 Maths 8.docx-  

 
-Year 6 Maths 8.docx-  


You can write your answers straight into your exercise book or you can print the sheet off and fill it in. I will put the answers up tomorrow so you can see how you've got on. 
         
       

Spelling task: 
 

Today, I would like you to watch the video at the link below. 

Once you have watched it, I would like you to write down key words associated with Birmingham and then key words you would associate with Johannesburg.
They will come in handy for a task later in the week.

Writing task:

To start with I would like you to watch the video titled 'Zahra' at the below link. You will need to scroll down the page until you get to Zahra, it's the second to last video on there. 

I would then like you to do a written version of the story of Zahra. You can watch the video as many times as you like and you can write notes while you're watching it, then re-tell the story.

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 'around the world'. 

The projects this week aim to provide opportunities for you to learn more about countries and cities around the world. Learning may focus on different cultures and traditions, famous landmarks, food and clothing. 
 
This afternoon, you can either carry on with the project you started yesterday or you can start a new one. smiley
 
Flags of the World- ​Flags are a national symbol for all countries. Cultures use different symbols and colours on their flags which are meaningful to them and represent their history and people. I'd like you to pick 5 countries and investigate their flags. What symbols and colours have they used? Why are these significant to this country? Can you create a flag for the UK which you feel represents our culture, history and people? 

 ● Tastes of the World- ​Children all around the world eat a variety of food and many of the foods we eat today are inspired by other countries. Can you research and make a dish from another country which you have not tried before? You could find a recipe, source the ingredients via an online shop and follow the recipe to create a dish for the whole family. 

 ● International Games- ​As part of the London 2012 Olympics a variety of countries were asked to name a traditional game which represented their culture and traditions. You can see these at the link below. Can you research these games and take inspiration from them to design your own game. Think about how the game is played, how you win and what equipment is needed. Where possible, you should test your game and make any changes needed. Please can you present your game through writing and pictures. These could be handwritten or digital.

 ● From Birmingham to Johannesburg- ​Think about what it would be like to live in another country. Do you think your life would be the same or completely different? Use the ​following clip​ to compare living in Birmingham to Johannesburg. Can you show the similarities and differences between your life and Nwabisa’s life in South Africa. You may wish to show this in a Venn diagram, table or a poster.

 ● Exploring the World- ​Throughout history many people have explored new places. You can find out about some of them ​on the link below​. You could pick an explorer from the list or one of your choice. You should map out the places that the explorer visited or you could create a piece of art inspired by the places they visited using digital images as support. You may wish to write a diary entry from the explorer’s point of view to share what they have seen and experienced.
