You could also try selecting division to practice using your knowledge of times tables to solve related division questions.

 White Rose Maths

Note: this week there are separate lessons for year 4 and year 5 children.

Year 4: Equivalent fractions

 Click on the link below to watch the video tutorial to learn how to use bar models and fraction walls to find equivalent fractions. (Equivalent fractions are fractions that have the same value..e.g. 1/3 = 2/6). Can you spot any patterns with the equivalent fractions you have found?

Parents: I have also uploaded the answer sheet (Y4 MATHS ANSWERS) for you to refer to.

English: Non-chronological report

Today you are going to be writing your own non-chronological report about your foodimal. Use the powerpoint below to explore what a good non-chronological report should look like, and the structure and language features you should include in your own writing (success criteria). A version with audio commentary is also available to help you identify some of the features required.

Then…have a go.

Make sure you include:

  • Title
  • Introduction
  • Paragraphs (each paragraph to describe a different characteristic of the foodimal)
  • Subheadings
  • Conclusion (interesting fact)
  • Picture of your foodimal  with a caption
  • Present tense
  • Technical (scientific) vocabulary
  • Third person
  • Descriptive, factual language
  • Vary sentence starters
  • Subordinating and coordinating conjunctions
  • Punctuation: capital letters, full stops, commas
  • Challenge: can you use brackets for parenthesis?

 

D&T/Art/: Design and make a 3D model of your foodimal.

This is your opportunity to get really creative. Go for a hunt around the house/home and see what stuff you have that you can use to make your model from (a good place to look is your recycling bin). Then think how you could use those materials to make a model of your foodimol. Create a quick design (a quick sketch will do) then get making. I can’t wait to see some of your models!

Home Learners: Design technology: Foodie Friday!!!

My favourite day of the week, with my favourite task of the week! Get creative in the kitchen! Knock up a snack, as sweet treat, a healthy meal...whatever you fancy. Can you try to make something that involves careful measuring of ingredients (e.g. weighing/ capacity of liquids). Can’t wait to see some of your fabulous creations. Channel your inner chef/ bake-off contestant… (Extra bonus points may be awarded if you clean up after you too!)

Have a fantastic weekend!!!
