Good Morning Year 4!
Look at the Reading Challenges tab and see what your challenge is for today!
For today's starer please complete a new activity that has been set for you on Mymaths.
We are now on Lesson 3 of Week 4. It is called Perimeter of rectilinear shapes.
The worksheet and answers are saved below.
There is also some extension work if you have additional time. Again this extension is optional.
Some of you may not have finished your writing from yesterday. If you haven’t just focus on that today!
If you have...
Today is all about the conclusion!
The final paragraph is a bit different. It concludes the argument and includes your own opinion. It is written in the first person. Here is the final paragraph in the example:
In conclusion, there are many strong arguments for and against banning homework from schools. If it helps a child’s education, then surely homework is a good thing. Then again, time away from studying to play is also incredibly important to a child’s wellbeing. On balance, I don’t believe homework should be banned because it really is an important part of learning. However, I also believe there should still be time in the day for fun! Therefore, perhaps schools should come up with a compromise: keep homework, but don’t set so much!
So now is the time where you choose which side of the argument you are on! Are you for or against? Now think about why that is as you need to articulate it in your conclusion.
Not only do you need to express your opinion, but you need to conclude the argument. In this example here is how they concluded their argument:
In conclusion, there are many strong arguments for and against banning homework from schools. If it helps a child’s education, then surely homework is a good thing. Then again, time away from studying to play is also incredibly important to a child’s wellbeing.
It is about summing up the main points supporting either argument. The concluding of the arguments should then be followed by your opinion. It should be succinct and to the point. I particularly like this conclusion and how the writer has finished:
Therefore, perhaps schools should come up with a compromise: keep homework, but don’t set so much!
The writer has almost suggested about what could be done moving forward. I wonder whether you have a suggestion about what Dad should do moving forward.
Task - Write your conclusion!
Sum up what you've written so far for both arguments and a suggestion for moving forward.

Telling the Time
Telling Time - Tutorial - watch the video and try to complete the quizzes near the end. Il est = it is.
Point out that instead of saying 12 o’clock (douze heures), the French say midi (midday) and minuit (midnight). Use a real clock or point to images of o’clock times. Person A asks:
Quelle heure est-il? (What time is it?)
Persons B answers, for example:
Une heure (one o’clock) or ...
il est une heure (it is one o'clock)
Complete the Telling Time – O’clock activity sheet. Alternatively, draw and label the clock faces in your Home Learning Book.
Throughout this unit, use your Core Language resource OFTEN. These are key words and phrases you are aiming to learn, say and understand over the course of the term.
