Please click on the link ‘Literacy plan adapted WC 22.02.21’. You can access the text mentioned in the plan by clicking on the secret lake link below. I will do daily zooms each morning to explain each lesson.
Your child should have their home spelling book. Please look at the spellings for the w/c 22.02.21. Practise daily and test your child on Friday. Most children are learning these words:
Please continue to support your child with their reading. You can teach them how to read unfamiliar words by sounding out; reading on and going back to it and, importantly, discussing the context of the story. If your child is a confident reader then please still discuss the book with them. You can talk about key events, characters’ feelings as well as authors’ choice of language and the impact on the reader.
Don't forget that your child can access books on Active Learn. Ask your child to complete this week's comprehension that is in your home learning pack. For those children who are coming to school, please bring your home reading book and home learning pack on a daily basis so that I can check your books and listen to you read.
For this week, I want your child to practise punctuating speech. This is one of the required skills mentioned in the literacy plan. Remember, in your writing, only include spoken words that help in developing your character.
For example, "I have found a box," doesn't tell the reader much about the character.
If we change it to, "Wow! I can't believe it! I've finally found it!" we now know that this character is feeling excited and that they have been waiting a long time for this.
Please click on the resources below in order to practise punctuating speech:
Daily mini activities:
Continue to practise your times tables and divisions on a daily basis. This is the order in which I would like you to learn them:
2X, 5X, 10X, 3X, 4X, 8X, 6X, 11X, 12X
Make sure you are confident in these before you move on to 7X and 9X. You need to be able to count up from zero but also know the answers in any order. Make sure you are fluent with your divisions too, linking it to your multiplication facts.
For your main lessons, we are adding and subtracting fractions. Please see the home learning resources on the following website:
WATCH THE VIDEOS FOR EACH DAY. These can be easily accessed by clicking on Year 4 and Spring week 7 on the website above.
