Philosophical question:

Word of the day: jubilant

Challenges:   

  • Find out what it means and write the definition in your own words!   

  •  What is its word class?   

  • How many syllables does it have (clap each syllable to help you)? 

  •  Make a list of synonyms and antonyms   

  •  Can you use it in an interesting sentence?  

  • Are you able to use it, appropriately, when you are speaking or in any of your writing opportunities?

 

Reading:Go to the reading challenges section for this week's reading learning. https://www.sussex-road.kent.sch.uk/reading-comprehensions/ For today I would just like you to read the text called Cats. It is 5 pages long. You will be answering questions about it later in the week so you will be looking back at it but today just become familiar with the text, maybe reading it more than once. It can be found in the Reading booklet PDF.

 

Maths: 

Spend some time on Hit the Button today, practising your multiplication skills. To mix things up a bit, try Times Tables (Hit the question) https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

We will be completing a week learning about angles. The first lesson of the week is called 'Identify Angles' and can be found here. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/

The worksheet is attached. 

 

English

 

Head over the virtual library where I read up to page 109!  

 

What has happened in what you have just listened to? What do you think of the Thurlstone?  

Today I would like us to think about the following question:  

Should Cliff stay and become an island, or should he leave to go to the Hallowed Shallows?  

 

Task

To write reasons for why he should stay and become an island and reasons why he should leave to go to the Hallowed Shallows.  

 

This could be done as a table. Remember to draw the lines in your book neatly! 

To become an island (stay) 

To leave (Go) 

 

 

 

When thinking of your answers – imagine yourself as each character. What would they each say to Cliff? What would their reasons be?  

Enquiry

We already know the Great Barrier Reef is one of the marine wonders of the world but over the next two lessons, we're going to find out why. Here are some very BIG numbers to help us appreciate why it is famous and so important.

 

                            

 

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most incredible natural phenomena in the world. Take your time to enjoy the galleries, powerpoints and video before completing your learning. 

 

Choose the text and level of questions you would like to answer. Read the text carefully. Please write in full sentences. For example:

 

Question: What is the name of the largest ocean in the world?

Answer: The name of the largest ocean in the world is the Blahblah Ocean.

 

Look at the underlined words. These are all the words I have recycled from the question to help me write my answer. I have only actually added one new word. Genius!

Great Barrier Reef | Exploring Oceans

The largest living structure, the Great Barrier Reef spans more than 1,200 miles (2,000 km) of islands and submerged reefs.
