Class 4 – Remote Learning – 13.01.21

Good morning all!

 

Thank you for taking on board the feedback from yesterday. It was clear how many of you were trying your best to try to understand what you were learning – rather than rushing through. Well done!

 

Here is a rough timetable of this week again. If you’d rather structure your day a different way, please feel free.

You may notice on that timetable that we have a “live lesson” planned which will be to meet Larry (our temporary axolotl), who was brought to school last Monday ready for this term. The live session will be an informal and optional session where you will get to a chance to see each other together, meet Larry and, if he’s hungry (he almost always is…), get a chance to see him being fed! This will be done on Teams and more information on how to join in will be available later in the week.

 

EBM

Here are some EBM questions for you to have a go at before maths:

EBM – 13.01

 

Maths: Simplifying fractions

Please make sure you take the time to watch the video and listen carefully to what is being said. If you need to, you can re-watch it.

We are going to be moving on to simplifying fractions. This is very similar to work we were doing on equivalent fractions yesterday – only that we will always be dividing our numerators and denominators. We also need to use some knowledge on factors and multiples.

 

Here is the video link: https://vimeo.com/467396285

Here is the worksheet: Simplify Fractions (W2)

 

If you have any issues with the video, please let me know.

 

Maths: Extension

Here are some more extension question – if you feel like more of a challenge after finishing your main task. Questions 3 and 4 are particularly difficult!

Maths Extension – 13.01

 

Sentence / Fragment / Run-on

As we usually do in school, here is a Sentence / Fragment / Run-on task:

Sentence, Fragment, Run-on 13.01

The first page is just the information / a recap on the difference is between an sentence, a fragment and a run-on again.

 

English

Here are my explanation of the words and phrases from yesterday. You can compare them with yours.

My explanations of yesterday’s vocabulary

 

Today we are going to answer some comprehension questions on this song. You should have a pretty good understanding of it now. Here are the lyrics again: Hero to Zero – Original, and here is the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOL-EJZjmp0 – if you need to familiarise yourself with it. You can use both to help throughout today’s task.

 

Here are your questions:

Comprehension questions on Zero to Hero

 

Class Read

 

 

Spellings

Here is today’s spelling activity: Spellings – -cious (1)

It is a very similar pattern to the one we were doing last week!

 

Independent reading

As always, you should be spending some time every day reading; however, as we would usually do in school after Spellings, it would be great if you spend an extra 30 minutes today reading your own book. If anyone is stuck for reading material, please let me know and I can see what I can do.

 

 

Science

Today’s science lesson continues from last week’s (on particles in solids, liquids and gases). Today, we’re going to look at what particles will look like in “pure” and “impure” substances. Impure substances is another way of saying “a mixture”.

As this is the second lesson in this sequence, there is an introductory and end-of-lesson quiz – as well as the main video.

 

 

As always, please email me (class4@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk) any question if you are confused with or don’t understand anything.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.
