Good Morning :)

Philosophical question:

What's the point of football?


Word of the day: aquatic


  • 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?



Today you are using your grammar knowledge to find some fronted adverbials! 

Refresher: what is a fronted adverbial? 

Fronted adverbials are words or phrases at the beginning of a sentence, used to describe the action that follows. A comma is normally used after an adverbial.



Today's lesson is called Add two 4 digit numbers, one exchange.

I have added this link for a game called totality. It is a game for more than one person. There is a little video that doesnt have sound that shows how to play. There is a game sheet in the documents to print out or you draw your own. See if you can work out the rules and then play.



Today, just today for SPaG, you need to be negative! 



Head over to the Year 4 Virtual Library and watch Week 2 Lesson 3 video where I read pages 24 to 31. Listen carefully to the new character and the conversation that is had! 


We have a mermaid!! Although, she isn’t your typical kind of mythical mermaid one would expect.  


Today, I would like you to write a character description for Iris (the mermaid!). To do this, you need to listen carefully to the story as well as infer from the illustrations in the book. 


What is a character description? Re-fresher course! See the PowerPoint or watch the video uploaded below! 

Today there is a little bit of choice with how you choose to present your learning. It doesn’t have to be in the form of a paragraph! Quite often you guys at home are getting far more creative at how you wish to present your learning (which is fab!) but here are some of my suggestions:  

  • Mind map – you could write her name in the middle or do a drawing 

  • Washout drawing of Iris with a description written on top  

  • Acrostic poem (using mermaid or iris)  

  • Poster 

  • PowerPoint presentation  

  • Stop-motion animation  

  • Create a 3D model

In your own words, share your understanding of what prayer is. Use your learning from last week to help you. This week, we are looking at Salat – a Muslim prayer ritual involving clear movements or prayer positions. Each position represents part of a Muslim’s relationship with Allah.


Look at the pictures. Can you infer how the character is feeling by just looking at their appearance? What clues are there? Look at their faces and bodies to help you. This is called body language. Now read the Lesson Plan.
