Hello Mallard Class, 

 

From Monday 4th May, your home learning tasks will be posted on Seesaw only. Get in touch if you have any problems accessing the work!

 I do hope you enjoy your learning at home. Please also remember to read daily if possible, and to practice your times tables and mental arithmetic skills using TTRockstars or Mathletics. 

See you on Seesaw!

 

Mrs Brown

 

Good morning! This is your Computing task for Tuesday 12th May. It is a Word document to edit which is why it is on here and not on Seesaw! It's just a short task and hopefully pretty straight forward.

Our English for this week is writing a story. Today's lesson is just the planning. Do not go any further! Read through the document attached and plan your story.

Send/ post a picture of your plan so I can see the detail you have put onto it please!

Home learning timetable 20th -24th April

I have given you 6 of the 20 word on the document below. Your task is to look them up in a dictionary and write a definition for each word (explain what it means!). There is a ‘note’ response form on Seesaw for this or you can do it in your workbook.

Please join your writing! PSHE - read the attached document. Draw the cup in your workbook. You can use different colours for the words if you want to. Ask family and friends to help you if you get stuck (I had to - it's hard to praise yourself sometimes!) The next part is as creative as you want it to be. Have fun with it! I look forward to seeing what you come up with :-)

Year 4 home learning timetable 30th March - 3rd April

Easter Holiday tasks. We have posted on Seesaw today some projects for the Easter holidays! There is the Science fact sheet that you were already aware of - this is not optional! There are also 2 optional activities; the photo competition and the opportunity to write a message to our wonderful NHS staff. I have put all 3 documents here for you to read. Have a lovely Easter break - don't eat too much chocolate!!

Hello again! Here are your English tasks for Friday 3rd April. You have a Spelling task about homophones and some handwriting to do. You can complete the first part of the Spelling task on Seesaw or in your workbook. The second part (creating your own homophone dictionary) probably needs to be completed in your work book as I'm not sure how much you can write on a 'note' on Seesaw! Please spend time doing your spelling task carefully - lots of you are not secure in your knowledge and use of homophones. Obviously, your handwriting needs to be completed in your work book not on Seesaw!

Good morning! Here are your maths, guided reading and art tasks for Friday 3rd April. As it's the end of term, there's just one maths task today (though it has several steps!). You're going to use your maths skills to solve a mystery! You can send me your answer when you've worked it out and I'll tell you the correct answer later in the day! For Guided Reading you're reading a picture book and answering questions. On Seesaw there's a video of Mrs Blackie reading the book to you as well, so check that out! Then you're going to do some art: designing your own flying machine. Everything you need to know is in the documents below. Enjoy!

SCIENCE HELP! Here's a document with weblinks to help if you can't play the games. There's a second document on Seesaw too! Hope it helps!

Hello! Below are the documents you will need to complete your Science and English Tasks for Thursday 2nd April. For English, follow the link on the document and complete the 3 games. Then edit the paragraph for punctuation. You can do this in your work book or on the response note on Seesaw. The first part of your Science is online too - some information to read, some activities to do and quizzes to complete. You do not need to record any evidence of this but what you learn will be obvious in your holiday project! This project is the second part of Science and is to create your own double page spread of what you have learned about electricity - do this as a holiday project as it is too much for one days learning!

Good morning everyone! Below are your maths tasks for Thursday 2nd April. There's a brain warm up, a main maths task and a challenge. As usual, the challenge is optional. Only do this if you feel like more maths! The main maths task today is a mixture of more long division and another method - short division! Now that you can do long division, you might find short division quite a bit easier. Read the document carefully and see how you get on with the calculations. There's a video on Seesaw to help. Enjoy!

Hello! Your English task today is to write a verse to continue a narrative poem. The document below shares the poem and a guide to writing your own verse - follow it step by step.

Hello again! Hope everyone is raring to go for another week of learning. Here is your English Task for today. We are looking at riddles - I love riddles :-) The first document has ones for you to solve - don't scroll too quickly as each answer is on the next slide. Guess before you scroll! The second document is an explanation of your task and some help to complete it. This can be done either in your work book and emailed if you want me to solve your riddle, or you can do it on Seesaw on the response form (which is just a note) Have fun and see if you can trick me!

Good morning! Hope you had a lovely weekend! Below are your maths and RE tasks for Monday 30th March. They're all on Seesaw too.

Hello! The links below are your spelling and handwriting activities for Friday 27th March. There are 2 spelling tasks that can either be done on printed copies of the documents below or on Seesaw on a response sheet. If you can't print Task 1 (An ordinary day text) or do it Seesaw, then make lists in your workbook of the words with different numbers of syllables and the words with unstressed vowels. Similarly for the table of words according to their unstressed vowel re-draw the table in your book and fill it in. Read the document called Spelling Friday 27th March for the full explanation of the tasks and watch the Learn with Livi video on Seesaw for some help! The handwriting task is to copy the poem in your best handwriting into your workbook.

You can complete these in your Home Learning books or on a template on Seesaw. For your French lesson today you're writing some sentences and creating a poster about the weather in French.
