W/C 29.6.20

Can you believe we are nearing the end of June Y3/4? The sunshine has been back out and the feeling of summer is creeping closer. We hope you are all well and staying safe, maybe you've finally been able to see family members whilst socially distanced in your gardens or outside. Maybe you've started going for more walks with your grown-ups and household. Whatever you've been up to, we hope you're still smiling! 

Below is all the work for this week's home learning. Try to work through each section throughout the week, completing small activities each day. 

We're missing you all!

This week in English, we are wanting you to create your own Covid-19 learning diary. This will be something you will need to add to each day but it will also be something you can look back at in the future to remember this crazier time of life. 


* You will need to fill in a section each day as you move through the week.

* You will need to think of other elements of your learning and what you have learnt and add that in.

* Think of smaller things such as the funniest moment you have had at home this week- positive things to 

   reflect back on.


The task sheet you will need is attached below. However, if you cannot download it or print it out then don't worry! You can always create your own sheet on a piece of paper by copying it out and designing your own. 


This week in Reading we want you to read chapter 1 of 'Ice Cream Villain'. Click here to read the chapter. 


Activity 1: Before you start reading, ask yourself:

* What is an ice cream villain?

* Who could it be?

* Is the whole story going to be based around ice-cream or is there going to be something more?


Activity 2: Once you have read chapter 1, complete this quiz to see how well you understood the story.


Activity 3: Click here to be taken to activity 3. You will need to design your own ice cream menu. Read the instructions carefully on the page. 


Lesson 1:

* Multiplying 100s, tens and ones by ones* 


1. Click here to access the website for today's lesson.       

2. Watch the video carefully, two children will show you the method of multiplication. 

3. When the video has finished, maybe practise multiplying two number together on a piece of paper, just to practise the method they have shown you.

4. Play activity one...Multiplying Madness...if you do not have a dice to roll then don't worry. Use anything you have got, maybe number cards etc. If you do not have any of those either then just create numbers yourself by choosing from 1-6. 

5. Complete activity two. You can do this by clicking onto the activity and it will bring it up on the screen for you. If you do not want to do it this way, I have attached the activity below for you to click on and look at. Either print it out and write on the sheet or just copy out the calculations onto a piece of paper and answer them on there. Remember to do all your working out, if you guess answers, they are more likely to be wrong. 

Lesson 2: 


* Dividing a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number* 


1. Click here to access the learning website.   

2. Watch both the videos all about dividing 2-digit numbers (e.g. 86) by 1-digit numbers (e.g. 6).

3. Once you have watched the videos, click on activity one.  Work through the activity, step by step. Some of the steps will be tutorials for you to look at, they will help you. Then other parts of the activity will have questions for you to practise answering. The method you will need to use will be the method you saw in the videos.

4. Once you have worked through that, click on activity two. If you have any problems clicking on it, I have attached it below as well. This activity does not leave any space for you to use the method you have practised, do not let this put you off or confuse you. Read the calculation and then on some paper, do your method and your working out still. This will help you reach the answers quicker too.

Lesson 3: 

* Dividing a 4-digit number by a 1-digit number* 

1. Click here to access the learning website for this lesson. 

2. First, watch the children present the video on how to divide a 4-digit number by a 1-digit number.

3. Then go through the slides on the screen which show the method of using short division to answer questions.

4. Play the game 'Greatest Remainder' as activity one. If you do not have a dice or other equipment, then just choose a number between 1-6 each time in order to crate your 4-digit number. You will need paper too so you can write down your numbers and use the short division method to work out the remainders (answer) each time.

5. Once you have finished that you could even go onto play activity two with your siblings or grown-ups. Try teaching your grown-ups how to use the short division method, they might have forgotten since they were in school!


Do you know who this is???

Henry VIII


Henry VIII is one of the most famous British monarchs. He was king from 1491- 1547 when he died. one of the things he is most famous for are the amount of wives he had during that time. Altogether, Henry VIII had 6 wives and unfortunately, not all of them survived because he had quite a few of them beheaded! 

Your task is to research King Henry VIII and his wives. You will write a fact file about King Henry and a write a profile on one of Henry's wives. 

Below are some websites to help you find the research, read the information and decide which parts are the most important for your Henry VIII fact file. 


1. Discover History website 

2. BBC Bitesize- Who was Henry?      


Once you have finished the fact file on Henry, choose one of his 6 wives and create a profile all about them. Use this link to take you to a Purple Mash file. Complete the work on Purple Mash if you can. If for some reason you cannot, then write a character profile about your chosen wife on a piece of paper at home. 


For some more help and guidance, use the power point below. It is all about King Henry VIII and his 6 wives. 


This week in science, I would like you to investigate shadows by making a sundial.  The sheet for resources and how to do it is in the PDF below. There are 3 levels of difficulty shown ny the stars at the bottom of the page... (1 star is the simplest, while 3 stars is the most tricky - choose your own level of challenge!)

Make sure to choose a sunny day and not when it is cloudy or rainy.  



Did you know that the sundials were used in Egypt and Babylon over 3500 years ago. Romans first brought the idea over to Britain in 43AD ... where I can't imagine they got much use (#EspeciallyInTheNorth) because of our rainy weather and dull skies.


Ancient Britons had been using the sun to tell the time for thousands of years before that though. #Stonehenge
