Class 4 – Daily Activities – 21.05

Good morning. Before you check out today’s activities, here are yesterday’s answers.

If you missed a maths video/lesson or want to revisit something, here are the previous posts.

 

As always, you don’t have to do these activities at a set time or in a set order – that’s all up to you. Also, you don’t have to be doing work all day! Feel free to send in some pictures or videos of some of the other things you have been doing at home.

Writing

Here’s another colouring activity. This time you need colour each word based on which word class it could fit in. Some words could fit into more than one class (so you can choose which one) – e.g. Quarrel can be a verb (He is going to quarrel with me) or it can be used as a noun (He and I just had a quarrel).

Here’s a reminder of each word class:

Nouns are words which are used to identify “things”. Things can be people, places, objects, animals, ideas, feelings.
e.g. The dog from London had hurt its tail when it tried to squeeze through the gap in the fence.

Verbs are words which are used to describe an action, state or occurrence. We usually think of verbs as being actions.
e.g. Several of the chickens had escaped because the boy unfortunately left the gate open.

Be careful though as some words which are sometimes verbs can be used as a noun: e.g. He is going for a run – here, run is being used as noun.
e.g. He is going to run to school – here, (is going to) run is being used as a verb.

Adjectives are words which are used to add extra detail about a noun.
e.g. The blue and white cat jumped over the massive pond.

Adverbs are words which add extra detail about verbs, adjectives or other adverbs.
e.g. The really annoying chameleon walked incredibly slowly towards the fly.

Pronouns are words which replace a noun (you don’t necessarily know what noun the pronoun is replacing unless you have more information).
e.g. He loved playing volleyball whilst she hated it.

Determiners are words which determine which or what noun is being referred to.
e.g. The old man had three dogs, several grey mice, an elephant and this flamingo.

Prepositions are words which describe where something is in relation to something else.
e.g. The cat was hidden inside the bin. She arrived after dinner.

Conjunctions are words which connect ideas or words together.
e.g. Whilst I am swimming, my sister goes to football and tennis.

History

During the Tudor period, families/houses would have a “coat of arms”. This was often displayed on banners and shields when they went into battle. Here’s are slide from a PowerPoint explaining some of this:

Tudor Knights and Coats of Arms

 

Your task today is to design and draw your own coat of arms. Before you start, here’s some information on Heraldry (the design of coats of arms) including the meanings of some colours, symbols and animals used.

The Language of Heraldry

 

Here’s some templates you could use as a basis for your coat of arms. You don’t have o use these: if you wish, you could draw it all own your own.
