Tuesday 31st March 2020 – Home Learning Tasks

Good morning year 4! Keep going. You are all doing a fantastic job!

Here are your daily learning tasks:

Maths: multiplication

English: animal fact file

Reading: comprehension

 

Please remember there are no limits to the tasks being set. You can take the learning in which ever direction you choose. For instance: if a maths task has been set, completed and understood – why not extend your learning? Put the learning into real life situations. ‘Google’ some more challenging questions. Create a game using the skills. Make a video of yourselves teaching the skill to others.

Reflect on your learning. Why didn’t you understand? Can you ask someone to help? Phone a friend? What could you do better next time? Did you use a range of skills to complete the task? Could you think of a better way to show your learning?

 

Here is some more information if required:

Maths:

Choose your challenge – are you going to use grid method or column method for challenges 2 and 3?

English: 

Harry Potter’s owl, Hedwig, helps him throughout his time at Hogwarts. Choose an animal that you would have as your companion at wizard school and write a fact file about your animal.

Fact files usually include: an introduction, subheadings, factual information, information grouped in paragraphs – what other skills will you include?

 

Best wishes,

Year 4 Team
