Year 4

Blue Abyss

 

What’s lurking beneath the murky waters?

Year 4, we have both loved being your teacher over this past year. We hope you all have a wonderful summer holiday. Be sure to have lots of fun, remember to keep safe and we can't wait to see you return in September as a Year 5! I will be keeping my eye on Twitter to see your brilliant achievements!

 

We miss you,

 

Mrs Smith and Mrs Stubbs

 

 

Good morning Year 4,

 

We hope you have all had a wonderful half term. Please find below the work for week 6 and 7. As always, don't worry about doing absolutely everything and just try your best!

 

Continue to keep smiling and we miss you all so much heart!

 

Mrs Smith and Mrs Stubbs

 

 

Week 13

Monday 20th July to Tuesday 21st July

Maths

Over the holidays, don’t forget to log in and play against your class friends (and me!) on TTRS. You will find a few challenges below which use a range of skills that you have learnt over your time in Year 3. All I ask is that you try your best and persevere.

 

Writing

Activity 1: You may know lots of things about your new teacher Miss Milson, from your Zoom calls and seeing her around school but it would be nice for her to get to know you better too. So, this week we would like you to share your favourite memories from Year 4 and complete an All About Me. There are two below which you can print off and complete but why not show Miss Milson how creative you are and what a brilliant writer you are by writing your own. Use these as an example to give you an idea about what to include and make sure it is showing off your skills as a Year 4 writer.

Activity 2: Over the summer holidays, it would be brilliant if you could keep a diary which you could bring in to school or upload on to our Twitter page sharing all of your adventures. You may like to share about a messy adventure or maybe a trip to visit family or to the beach. Remember to use everything that we have learnt this year to make your writing Year 4 quality!

Spelling and Grammar

There are lots of games on Bug Club to play on to revise the Year 4 spelling rules and grammar features.

You will find all the words from the Year 2 and the Year 3/4 word list below – keep practising these common exception words as they can be easy to forget. Take a look and practise the spelling of any that you are not confident with ready to impress your new teacher next term!

For grammar, I would like you to have a go at one or more of these grammar mats using all of your grammar learning from this year. There are a few just in case you want a grammar through the holidays.

Reading

Continue with Bug Club and enjoy reading more books on there - completing the tasks as you go. Remember that you can access Bug Club from almost any device with an internet connection - but you do need your login information. If you run out of books or find the ones on there too easy, send a tweet to our class Twitter page and I'll change them for you when I can. 

 

Keeping your reading going is one of the most crucial things that you can do so, if you've not pushed yourself with your reading much so far, now is the perfect time to do it!

It would be great to see your experiments on Twitter or emailed to enquiries@grimoldby.lincs.sch.uk

Project

Artist! To finish this project, I had planned a lovely end of year class trip to the beach Here we were going to collect shells and observe their natural patterns and shapes. If possible, over the holidays take a lovely walk along one of the many beaches of our coastline and collect some shells. Feel for the lines, curves and forms of each shell and use these observations to draw an enlarged sketch of each shell. You could use wax crayons, pencil crayons, felt tips, chalks and markers to add details.

 

Designer! Create a new and original monster of the deep, using what they have learned about deep sea adaptations. Consider the type of animal (it might be a fish, mammal, cnidarian, mollusc or echinoderm), its size, features, prey and how it protects itself from predators. Are you going to sketch it, draw it using software on a computer or tablet or make a 3D model to create your animal? Make sure to use good scientific thinking and label your creation.

 

Keiko! Research and tell the story about ‘The Life of Keiko’. Keiko was a killer whale who became famous by featuring in two popular films. Create a timeline of Kieko’s life and write a recount of his life. This BBC News article will help you.

 

PE

Over the summer, try to enjoy as much fresh air as possible. Go on bike rides, run around the garden and take lots of wonderful walks. On those not so sunny days, you can always keep active by following a Joe Wick’s Youtube workout or one of these activities below.

Week 12

Monday 13th July to Friday 17th July

Maths

This term in TTRS you are going to have a mix of different multiplication facts each week. By now, you should all know every multiplication fact up to 12 x 12 so this is your time to really make sure you’re confident. You will also find a mini maths challenge.

Try your best with these lessons from White Rose. This week the Maths focus is based on symmetry. This is something brand new so please do just try your best. Please click here to access the daily videos for week 12 and find the worksheets below. You will also find some extra activities if you fancy a challenge.

Writing

 

Story starter!

 

For hundreds of years they had been sleeping.

The ocean had been their home since that terrible day, when they had been banished to this prison of endless ocean.

Now that they had been rediscovered, the time for waiting was at an end. The divers were shocked when they saw the colossal, stone giants begin to stir in the water. It was time…

 

Your challenge is this - Can you continue the description telling a story (narrative) at the same time? This is your time to be as creative and imaginative as you possibly can be.

 

To help you get started with your narrative, take a look at these activities below and then follow the writing steps to success.

 

  1. Use the IPEELL plan above to plan your narrative. Remember, planning for a narrative is different than any other text. Use the details stated in the story starter to help you fill in the boxes.
  2. Using your plan and the story starter, begin writing your narrative.
  3. Proof read your narrative against the Year 4 success criteria attached below.
  4. Edit or redraft for Year 4 perfection.
  5. SHARE it on Twitter or email it to me at enquiries@grimoldby.lincs.sch.uk – I would absolutely love to read it!

Spelling and Grammar

There are lots of games on Bug Club to play on to revise the Year 4 spelling rules and grammar features.

This week, I have put all of the words from the Year 3/4 word list up. Take a look and practise the spelling of any that you are not confident with ready to impress your new teacher next term!

For grammar this week, I would like you to have a go at this grammar mat using all of your grammar learning from this year.

Reading

This week, take a look at the image of ‘The Rather Interesting Octopus’. Once you have read all about the interesting octopus, have a go at answering the questions underneath.

Continue with Bug Club and enjoy reading more books on there - completing the tasks as you go.

Project

Art Gallery Activity 1: To promote the beauty and magic of the world’s oceans, you have been asked by the Ocean Conservation Society to create an art exhibition about the intriguing phenomenon of bioluminescence in deep sea creatures. Use researchify.com to find out what is a bioluminescent sea creature, what do they look like? Whether there are any similarities and differences? Which layer of the ocean they live in? Also, how they have adapted to survive.

 

Art Gallery Activity 2: Your artwork must demonstrate how some sea life, such as bacteria, jellyfish, starfish, clams, eels, crustaceans, squid and fish exhibit this amazing ability. Your exhibition will be open at night, so that gallery visitors will realise the impact and understand the purpose of bioluminescence in the blue abyss. You can use a range of materials that you have around the home such as paper mache using newspaper and glue mix (flour and water), you could sketch your bioluminescent sea creature, build it using lego or even make a natural version using leaves and twigs!

 

Researcher: Let’s help spread positivity by creating a bright and bold poster about the positives of lockdown. Over the last 12 weeks of lockdown, the Earth has seen a drastic change. Watch this video or use researchify.com to explore how the Earth has changed during the world’s lockdown.

 

 

PE

Did you complete our sports day events? Although it is now too late to send in your entries, you can still continue practising and trying to beat your best scores from last week. Look at Week 6 for Mr Hopper’s videos.

Whilst the sun is shining, get yourselves out and about for a wonderful daily walk, jog or bike ride.
