YEAR 4 ONLINE LEARNING

Welcome to our Year 4 online learning page. If your child is not at school during the term due to isolation or quarantine, we hope you will find these resources useful to access from home. Please do not hesitate to contact us via our email with any queries:

                                    Leopards      t.swainson@emsworth.hants.sch.uk 

                                    Jaguars        k.babbage@emsworth.hants.sch.uk

Online Curriculum Provision

This page will now be populated with online learning due to a Year 4 bubble closure. All Year 4 pupils and staff must now self-isolate until 15th May. If you have any questions about online learning or you would like to contact us directly due to you self-isolating, please email us.

You will find the week’s tasks on this page. Please upload any completed work to Seesaw where the Year 4 team and other members of our class will enjoy seeing how you are getting on. All passwords and logins to other online platforms were sent out at the beginning of the term. If you need another copy of these, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will send these to you via email. Paper copies will be provided to those who need it. 

In an attempt to not disrupt our current English learning journey, lessons will be grammar focused. Whilst our Maths learning will follow our long term plan of Year 4 objectives. We will also include daily spelling and reading activities. In addition to this, we will provide children with daily foundation subject activity e.g. PE, geography or science.

Half-termly homework tasks will continue – please feel free to use these to support your child as well. Your child will have received these at the beginning of the half term as paper copies

Extra Information

Following parent's feedback, we are now posting all resources, activities and templates onto Seesaw. An overview will remain on our page to support this transition. This will reduce the amount of printing expected whilst increasing children's independency for remote learning and future homework. Weekly timetables will be posted with links to the activities so children can navigate confidently and complete tasks using the online platform. Feel free to still print activities from Seesaw if this is preferred. We will continue to post daily videos explaining the day's learning. A parent video tutorial is pending and will be with you shortly. For now, please refer to the guide below:

It is important that you are trying tor read at least a chapter every day and play at least twenty minutes of TTRockstars. Here are examples of questions that you should be thinking about as you read.

Struggling to know what to read? Find some great book recommendations grouped by age group (below) or by theme (here). Free audiobooks can be found here.

Please see the glossary for terms that may be used in your writing tasks.

Timetable

 Friday 6th May

We thought it would be a great idea to have our normal class celebration via Zoom. This will take place at 2pm and will provide an opportunity to check in about the day's successes. Children will have time to share and of course play some games.

 Meeting information will be with you shortly.

Spellings

Spelling test. We would love to celebrate your scores on Seesaw. See above for a reminder of your spellings

Maths

Use the slides below to help you with today's learning: hundredths on a place value grid. Complete at least one sheet. Like you would at school, choose either one star, two star or three star sheet based on your confidence. Challenge yourself by trying to complete the reasoning that is at the very end of the document. Check your answers using the sheets.

 If you still require further guidance, click the button below to watch video explanations. We recommend watching the 'write decimals' video for today's learning.

 Guided Reading 

Find a quiet place to read at least a chapter of the book you are currently reading. To help your understanding of the book as you read, it is recommended you answer these questions below. It would be brilliant if you could even create your own book review and post any recommendations on Seesaw. 

 

OR Use your personal logon to ReadTheory and accurately complete quizzes for at least 30 minutes. Alternatively, Oxford OWL offer free online e-books (spot books), which can be enjoyed at home and have some comprehension questions to work through as well.

PE

Practicing yoga helps you to relieve stress by using breathing to calm the mind and the nervous system. Complete this yoga session to help wind down.

Fake is a Mistake

Session 1

WE ARE LEARNING THAT: We are not what we do.

Can you explain that you are not what you do?

Complete the worksheet by thinking carefully about the statements on the page.  Record your thoughts and ideas in as much detail as possible.

 

We all do many things but what you do isn’t who you are. If we are what we do - then when we do something great - we are great. But then when we make a mistake, or we fail at something, we think we are a mistake and a failure.  

You are special before you even do anything. Think about how much we all love newborn babies when they haven’t ‘done’ anything yet. Be first. Then Do. The order matters!

How would you normally respond to someone performing - wait to the end to clap, congratulate the performer and tell them what they loved about them and what they had done.

You are going to flip this the other way round and celebrate the performer BEFORE they have even done a single thing. This helps us to remember that we are human beings before human doings. Ask a member of your family to volunteer to perform something for you. Don’t forget to applaud and congratulate them before they start! Get them to try the same for you.

Sessions 2:

WE ARE LEARNING THAT: The words we choose to listen to affect how we see ourselves.

Can you identify the important voices in your lives? Do you recognise the difference between kind and unkind voices in your lives?

We all have people who speak into our lives - some speak love, some speak harm. Some voices will encourage us, cheer us on and help us live well, other voices will put us down, belittle us and make us feel rubbish.

The most important voices in our lives, are the ones that we choose to listen to.

Remember Boris’ story.

  • How did Boris feel when he chose to listen to the Scrapman? (he believed he was scrap and went back to the scrapyard)
  • How did Boris feel when he chose to listen to Amber and Josh? (he believed he was loved and returned home with them)

Just like Boris had to choose who to listen to, it is up to use to choose who we listen to as well.

On the worksheet, list the different voices that you have in your lives (e.g teacher, parent, carer, friend). Write some of the things that person says about them and draw a heart next to the voices that bring the most encouragement and love. These are the voices that we should listen to. Draw a star next to the most important voice to you.

Guided Reading 

Although we are going to save our new book for when we get back to school, we thought you might enjoy recapping the chapters we have read in class and a few more over the coming week. Each day we will release a chapter for you to listen to and make some quick notes. Click the book cover below to listen to chapter 1.

Record your thoughts and ideas on these pagesYou can type them in or hand write them if you prefer. Quick notes are fine. The questions will get you to summarise the chapter and get a good understanding of the events and characters.

It would also be great if you could use your personal logon to ReadTheory and accurately complete quizzes for at least 30 minutes. Alternatively, Oxford OWL offer free online e-books (spot books), which can be enjoyed at home and have some comprehension questions to work through as well.

English

 We have decided it would be best to 'paws' (excuse the pun) our Varjak Paw learning journey for now and focus on specific grammar instead. Don't worry, we have still manged to link the learning with our 'Amazing Animal' topic.

Today we will be focusing on how to write sentences in both the simple past tense and its present perfect from. Click the video below to access the lesson and complete the sheet as you go.

History

We are continuing to explore whether Portsmouth can tell us much about its past.

Unfortunately, we are not able to visit Portsmouth today. Instead, we will pretend to be there by either watching the interesting walking tour of Portsmouth Quayside, continuing to gather information virtually using our ‘treasure hunt’ QR codes or by using the Geotourist tour. Finish the sheet we begun last lesson as you go.

 

 

 

To access geotourist tour, click the logo above. Scroll down to the map (as seen above) and click the numbers to find out more about the place. There is even a soundtrack to listen to instead. You may wish to use Google Maps’ Street View to have a closer look.

Challenge: Use PowerPoint to create a presentation on a place that interests you the most. See what you can uncover about Portsmouth’s past.  

 

French

Prepositions of place - In French today, you are building on your knowledge of places to say where something is.

Read aloud and learn the following phrases to learn how to ask and answer where things are using prepositions of place:

The propositions of place Les prépositions de lieu

Where is it? Où est-ce?

Where is the market? Où est le marché?

It’s on the left C’est á gauche

It’s behind the cinema C‘est derriére le cinema

It’s opposite the train station C’est en face de la gare

Where are you? Où es-tu?

I am Je suis...

I’m in front of the shops Je suis devant les magasins

If you have someone at home with you, practice asking and telling them where places are using prepositions of place.

Then use the phrases above along with the table of places La table des lieux and the table of prepositions le tableau des prépositions to write five example sentences of where something is, e.g.

Where is the café? Où est le café?

It’s opposite the train station C’est en face de la gare

Now try the quiz at the bottom of this link to see how well you can remember your recent French learning.

Computing

Our Online Safety focusses for this half term are: managing information online and health, wellbeing and lifestyle.  Our Safer Internet Day this year was all about ‘An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world’ so lots of you will already have a great understanding of fake news. If you didn’t manage to participate in this, you may wish to take part in this lesson which explores reliability.


Today we are going to focus on the ‘A rule’ (accepting) Watch the mini lesson below hosted by ChildNet International. This will go through a series of activities and discussion points, delivering key online safety messages as you go! The video lesson will take approximately 15 minutes for a child and adult together, but can be extended with discussion. At the end of the video there are three follow-up challenges. At least one of the three challenges can be completed without any additional resources or access to technology (although paper, pencils and a bit of imagination will make them a lot more fun!)

Now test your understanding using this fun online quiz. After you have answered the question, there are choices to 'learn more' and 'discuss questions'. Click these before you move onto the next question.

If this isn't enough, you could even play this game.  You may recognise the characters from our previous learning. 

Art

As we have been making animal masks in school as part of our latest sculpture topic we would like you to have a go at sketching our class animal heads.  Choose whichever animal you wish.  You could even search for other animal heads on Art Hub in YouTube and try those.

PE

Yesterday, we focused on one of our Online Safety concepts: managing information online. Now, we are linking our PE with our other Online Safety focus: health, wellbeing and lifestyle.

How I feel online - Safer Internet Day 2018 film for 7-11 year olds from UK Safer Internet Centre on Vimeo.

 Discuss:

  1.     What do you like to use technology for?
  2.     What things make you happy when you use technology?
  3.     What things make you unhappy/angry/sad when you use technology?
  4.    How long do you think you spend using technology each day/ week? How long do you think you should spend using technology each day/ week?
  5.    What happens when you’ve been using technology for too long? to your body? to your mood? to your device?

We are all becoming increasingly independent users of technology and the internet with many of us owning our own devices. For many of us our online use will consist of gaming and watching video content independently. We might find that time flies when using this technology and that we become distracted from other things that I might do or should be doing. When we notice that technology is causing us to feel unhappy, angry or sad it might be best to limit the amount of time we are spending using it.

What strategies can we use to help us limit time spent using technology?

Spend more focused time doing things that cause a positive affect on our body or moods. This might be by keeping active.

Put this theory to the test by joining the characters from Disney’s Zootropolis. Complete challenges to help resolve problems that characters are facing. You might even wish to get family involved by choosing challenges involving more than 1 player. I would recommend ‘Judy Hopps’ Training Test’. Click the image below.
