Class 4 – Remote Learning – 23.02.21

Good morning.

You may have seen/heard that it was confirmed yesterday that we will be returning back to school on 8th March – which, as well as being great news, leaves us with 2 weeks more of remote learning. As mentioned yesterday, the plan with our activities is to focus on practising key skills to help prepare for the return back to school.

 

Here is a basic overview of the week. As always, you don’t need to follow this if you don’t wish to.

 

Maths

Today’s focussed practice is on place value:

Place Value

 

I would like you all to have a go at  Q1 and 2 of the extension questions. For those of you feeling up for a challenge, you could also have a go at Q3 and 4. If you’re feeling extra ambitious, you could also have a go at the challenge question.

Barvember – Q1-4 and challenge

 

English

Today’s activity, we are going to be looking at noun phrases:

Noun Phrases

 

Whole-class Reading

Over the next couple of week, we will have a WCR session every day. These will all link to a certain subject. Today’s is a general information text on Greece

Greece – T

Greece – Q

 

Spellings

Here is your spelling activity for today: ance&ancy – (1)

 

Geography/Science

As mentioned yesterday, our afternoon sessions over the next few week will be focussing on certain skills which will be incredibly useful for us to practise before returning. Today’s will again involve your attention and listening skills. However, it will also help you build your stamina in these skills as you need to try and sustain both for a longer time.

Your task is to watch this video and make notes on any interesting information you watch/hear. You notes can be set out / presented however you wish. Your note don’t have to be all writing; you could draw some quick sketches for bits if you would rather.

As warning, there is one scene involving a wildebeest and some cheetahs you may find very slightly distressing.

 

Physical Activity

We won’t be having any P.E. (physical education) sessions over the next couple of weeks. However, we will be doing a some daily physical activity sessions. Out of interest, the difference between physical activity and physical education is that physical activity is simply completing some exercise – whereas physical education involves specific learning about a physical skill, activity or sport.

For your daily physical activity, I would like you to run, cycle or walk every day (it could just be around your garden – even if it’s  quite small!). Then, if you could send me in the distance you have completed (it could be an estimate if you’re not sure), that would be great. A picture of you completing your activity would also be great if you can! The recommended daily physical activity for children (aged 6-17) is at least 60 minutes over a whole day, so for this particular physical activity you could aim for at least 30 minutes.
