Maths : This week for your starters we would like you to spend a few minutes every day on Times Tables Rock Stars.

The main part of the lesson is called Subtract two 4 digit numbers (no exchange).

If you complete this within the time, then please have a go at some of the money problems but be careful these are multi step problems.

SPaG : Have a go at the spelling activity below.



Head over to the Year 4 Virtual Library and watch Week 3 Lesson 1 video where I read pages 32 – 41.  

I wonder if these Seawigs are a real thing, in real life? What do you think?  


Today I would like you to design and create your very own Seawig! There are a few ways you could do this:  


  • Option 1: Find as many things around your house, balance them on your head/arms, shoulders! Take a picture. Then describe yourself as a Rambling Isle with your Seawig! 
  • Option 2: Draw your own Rambling Isle and draw on its Seawig! Then describe the Seawig.  
  • Option 3: Create a digital Rambling Isle using an app or software you already have. If you wish to download anything else, you must ask your parent/guardian first! Then describe your own Seawig. 
  • Option 4: Design and make your very own 3D Rambling Isle and Seawig using junk modelling resources you may have at home! Then describe your Seawig.  


You may have noticed that they all involve describing the Seawig – there is no escaping that one! However you choose to create your Seawig it doesn’t matter, so long as you have something you can describe.  



Describing your Seawig

Before we begin today's learning, here is a little puzzle for you. Can you unscramble the anagrams to reveal key vocabulary about the world's oceans from our learning last week? Answers can be found in the Lesson Plan.






Today, we are DIVING into the world of oceanography. We are going to IMMERSE ourselves in the wonders of the ocean floor. We wouldn't be able to do this without the pioneering work of an important scientist, Marie Tharp, about 70 years ago. She helped to solve the puzzle of what lurks below, finding a way to map the ocean floor of the Atlantic. Watch the video to find out more.

Solving The Puzzle Under The Sea

Marie Tharp was always fascinated by the ocean. Taught to think big by her father who was a mapmaker, Marie wanted to do something no one had ever done before: map the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Was it even possible? Not sure if she would succeed, Marie decided to give it a try.
