# Home Learning due to Lockdown

We have compiled a timetable to guide you through the next stage of our home learning. There are supporting links to help you and your child with some of the key ideas. Remember to do as much as you are able and work at a pace that suits your family life at this time. We have also put the worksheets onto Seesaw so that you can share your work with us after it is completed if you wish, however we do not want you to feel guilty or anxious if you are not able to do this - our priority is for you and your family to stay safe and keep well.

**Georgians Maths**

This week, we are starting to use our knowledge of times tables to calculate division. You will see that the more you have practised your times tables, the easier this work becomes. Do feel free to use your times table support sheet if you need it and you may find a number line helpful as is used in the first help video: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/week-11-number-multiplication-division/

This video should help you recognise how we link our time tables work from last term with the division work for this term.

Then complete ** p.121** and

**of our maths books.**

__p.122__**Victorians Maths**

Today we are beginning to look at symmetry.

please draw and cut out the shapes when you are asked to and fold them to find the lines of symmetry as this is a good way of learning. You will have to be particularly careful when you are drawing and cutting out a square and a rhombus as all the sides need to be of equal length if you are to find all the lines of symmetry.

**Tue**

**Georgians Maths**

Continue practising division but this time using 3 digit numbers.

Then complete ** p.123** and

**of our maths books.**

__p.124__**Victorians Maths**

You can always cut out shapes and fold them to find lines of symmetry. Then complete __p134____p135__** p136 **and

**Georgians Maths**

oday we are going to have a look at how to cope with remainders in division. This Youtube video gives a lovely clear explanation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1vyeGt4Ngg

There are also some clear questions to take you through the method until you feel confident on the __Division with remainders support powerpoint.__

Then complete ** p.125** and

**of our maths books.**

__p.126__**Victorians Maths**

You will need to count the squares carefully as shown on the PowerPoint. Then complete ** p138 p139 **and

__p140.__**Thur**

**Georgians Maths**

**Rounding Decimals**

Today we will use all that we have learnt about decimals to look at rounding decimals. This skill is useful when we are looking at measuring and weighing.

A number greater than (and including) .5 is rounded up to the next whole number and anything smaller than .5 is rounded down.

**≈ **means approximately equal to, or almost equal to. So:

2.2cm **≈ **2cm

2.8cm **≈ **3cm

**Victorians Maths**

particularly when there is a diagonal line of symmetry. But if you need to, you can always cut out a square, paint the shape on it and then fold the square to see where the symmetrical image lies and what it looks like. Then complete ** p141** and

**using paint if this helps.**

**Monday**

This week is World Book Day and so all our tasks are going to be based around this theme!

or a notepad to note down the next piece of information that you have to look for as you read through. The link that accompanies q.3, if you want to use it, is this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9h1ST98-iM

Have a think before tomorrow’s lesson about a book that you have read which you particularly enjoyed. It needs to be a story book. If you have been listening at story time zoom, you might like to choose Kensuke’s Kingdom or Brain Freeze. You may like to choose a Roald Dahl story that you read in Year 3. Your next few tasks will be based on this book and you are welcome to share your favourite piece of work in school next week if you would like to (this is optional).

**Tuesday**

Choose a scene out of your favourite book that contains the most action! Use it to create a comic strip to reflect just that one part of the book you chose to do your World Book Day tasks about this week. Don’t try to fit the whole story in, just the most exciting part.

You don’t need to write much (mainly drawing) although you may want to add one line of text in each box. Use the shapes on the second page to add speech bubbles and sound effects. You may like to draw or trace these if you want to use one more than once.

**Wednesday**

Choose a character from your chosen book to complete today’s task. It doesn’t have to be the main character, it could be just one that you find particularly interesting/funny/evil/mischievous.

Note that you may want to dress up as your chosen character and take a picture!

**Thursday**

Today, we have a few tasks that you may like to try.

**ANGLO SAXONS – THE BAYEUX TAPESTRY**

The Bayeux Tapestry gives an account of the Norman invasion of England and the Battle of Hastings at the end of the Anglo Saxon period. The battle happened in 1066. At the time the tapestry was created, very few people could read. Books were rare, as each one had to be written by hand. A tapestry told the story in a way that everyone could understand.

**TEETH AND DIGESTION**

Last week we found out about the effect of acid on our teeth when we left an egg in a glass of vinegar; the eggshell represented the enamel on our teeth and the vinegar was the acid.

If you did not do last week’s investigation or watch the video, I have put the link on the PowerPoint again; please watch it to see what happened before you do this week’s investigation.

Today we are going to look at whether we can protect our teeth by using a fluoride toothpaste. You will need some fluoride toothpaste, clear vinegar and two eggs. Follow the instructions on the PowerPoint. You are going to coat one egg in toothpaste and then leave that egg and an uncovered egg in vinegar to see what happens. I have put pictures of what happened when I did it at the end of the PowerPoint in case you don’t do it yourself, but it is fun to do. It does take several hours; mine took around fifteen.

Today, we will be continuing with our multiplication and looking at using the methods we learnt last term with some bigger numbers!

We will be partitioning numbers with three digits in order to multiply them.

Watch this White Rose Video that takes you through the methods we are using. When the link opens up, scroll down to the second row of boxes and click on ‘multiplying 3 digits by 1 digit’: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/spring-week-2-number-multiplication-division/

and then complete ** p.115** and

**of our workbooks.**

__p.116__**Victorians Maths**

For the next two weeks, we are going to go through a unit on geometry. You do not need a protractor for this. As long as you know the shape of a right angle (like the corner of a piece of printer paper) and know that an acute angle is smaller than a right angle whereas an obtuse angle is bigger than a right angle, that will be enough for you to access the work. However, if you do have one, you may enjoy learning to measure the angles with it.

Familiarise yourself with the size and shape of a right angle; write down the names of the different angles and draw pictures of them to help you remember which is which.

**Monday**

We are going to revise some of the important learning that we covered earlier in the year and that we must take with us as we move forward in our learning. The first theme is going to be writing dialogue. You will need this in a task this week and in the coming weeks as we look further at story writing.

Here’s a little reminder to help you: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zvftsbk

Can you find a good example of dialogue in one of your story books at home?

**Tuesday**

Watch this clip to recap what we were thinking about yesterday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-YFmLctwDY

Use your editing skills to ensure that it is set out correctly and with the correct punctuation. You may like to do this with an editing pen on the document first before writing it out, Think really carefully about layout and when a new character has started to speak!

**Wednesday**

Listen to ‘The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing’: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/english-ks1--ks2-aesops-fables-the-wolf-in-sheeps-clothing/zh8kgwx. Now write a well punctuated and carefully set out conversation between the wolf and the sheep. Imagine that you have two sheep (as in the radio version) discussing how large one particular sheep is and how weirdly he smells. Then perhaps the wolf, disguised as a sheep, convincing them to come near him so he can gobble them up!

You may like to do this in rough first!

**Thursday**

Look at the image of the wolf from this week’s fable, in the same powerpoint, and use carefully chosen adjectives to describe him. Think about the example on the first slide – sometimes it’s easier to write a good description if you describe the character as they are doing something eg. chasing the sheep or planning how he will get close to them.

**ANGLO SAXON SETTLEMENTS**

Take some time this week to read through the Powerpoint __‘__** Anglo Saxon Village Life’** so that you are prepared for your History lesson on Anglo Saxon Settlements.

**Spelling**

**Friday**

This week we will be looking at Prefixes.

The activities below will help you to practise your spelling of different prefixes this week.

**History**

**ANGLO SAXON**

**Settlements**

The Anglo-Saxons preferred to live very differently to the Romans who had established large towns in Britain during their rule. Places like London and Cirencester, which were thriving centres under the Romans became much smaller and quieter during the Anglo-Saxon times, and some towns were completely abandoned and the buildings were left to go to ruin.

The Anglo-Saxons chose to live in small villages instead, which were often set up by clearing away a part of a forest. The Anglo-Saxons lived in family houses which were built around a central hall where the village chief lived.

**Activity**

Design your own village

- You should try to include as many features as you can to make sure your village is busy and thriving!
- You will also need to include labels to annotate all the features of your village.
- You can either draw your village or make it 3D. There are some ideas on the Powerpoint. You can draw or print out the images that I’ve put together for you in the Village Resources

Use these resources to help you, if you wish:

**TEETH AND DIGESTION**

This term we have a new topic and we are starting with a look at teeth, which are part of the digestive system.

click on the link https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z27kng8/articles/zsp76yc that takes you to a BBC Bitesize video about different types of teeth and their functions. Learn about teeth as you go through the PowerPoint,

Then move onto slide 10 and follow the link to the BBC video https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/teeth/zr8ygwx. This video explores the teeth that various animals have that suit their diet. As the PowerPoint explains, there is an investigation towards the end of the video that you may like to do at home, which investigates the effect of different liquids on the outer surface of teeth, using eggshells in place of teeth. Carry out the investigation. Leave it for three days, then find out what has happened

**RE**

**Christianity**

Today we are returning to a Christian themed topic. We will be looking at the festival of Easter and important moments in the story.

** Listen to the presentation about The Last Supper** which is remembered on Maundy Thursday (one day before Good Friday).

After watching the second clip on the second slide, answer the questions.

Then finish by looking through the images of what Easter means to people around the world.

**Georgians Maths**

This week, we will be refreshing our skills with column subtraction and then looking at how we can multiply multiples of 100 (as we did with multiples of 10) Work through this BBC Bitesize page to remind you what we did last week. The quiz that is at the top of the page is probably best saved until last. Watch the film then read through the column subtraction method lower down – try these out with pencil and paper. Then do the quiz:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zb4gcqt

Did you have a go at the Guardians: Defenders of Mathematica game? If you did, you could let me know who your character is and how many shields you’ve won! I really enjoyed playing this game!

Remember to clearly show your carried tens.

There is a challenge sheet below if you are feeling confident.

**Victorians Maths**

We are continuing with fractions and beginning this week with hundredths, when a whole is split into one hundred equal parts.

**Tue**

**Georgians Maths**

Today we are going to be learning how to multiply three numbers in a row. The trick to this is to remember that you can swap the order of the numbers. You may want to start with the two biggest numbers. OR even better… look out for two numbers that equal a multiple of 10 and do them first!

There is a challenge sheet below if you are feeling confident.

**Victorians Maths**

Write the mixed numbers on slide 4 down on a piece of paper before you move the slide on to check your answer.

The questions on the second page are harder so only do them if you want a challenge!

**Wed**

**Georgians Maths**

Today we are going to apply our times tables to multiplying multiples of 100.

Then complete ** p.113** and

**. Remember the first page, want you to show your multiplication as repeated addition and then write your final answer.**

__p.114__**Victorians Maths**

Count up in fractions along the number lines on

and see if you can work out what the missing numbers are.

**Thur**

**Georgians Maths**

**Decimals**

Today we are looking again at writing tenths and hundredths as a decimal.

One whole divided into 10 equal parts is one tenth. We write one tenth as 0.1

One whole divided into 100 equal parts is one hundredth. We write one hundredth as 0.01

**Victorians Maths**

Today we are moving onto equivalent fractions which are fractions that are written in different ways but which still have the same value.

there are instructions for making a small fraction wall on squared paper. You can print of a sheet of squared paper

Use this to answer the questions on slide 9 of the PowerPoint.

**Fri**

**Georgians Maths**

**Decimals**

Today we will continue to compare and order decimals. As well as looking at the tenths and the hundredths we need to remember to also look at the tens and the ones too!

To put these numbers (32.54 23.45 24.35 32.45) in order it would look like this:

23.45 24.35 32.45 32.54

**Victorians Maths**

Today we are going to look at fractions that are equivalent to thirds.

then answer the questions on slide 7; you can write your answers

**Maths Challenges** this week if your child is feeling confident!!

**Monday**

This week, we are starting to look at fables. There are some really beautiful retellings of these stories with morals to be found, read by some very famous voices, on the BBC Radio. I think it would be of real benefit for all the children to listen to one or two of these each day to get a real feel for how a moral is structured, the types of characters it often involves and the lessons that they teach. The following link will help you access these: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/english-ks1--ks2-aesops-fables-index/z73s6v4

For our first task, we are going to focus on the tale of The Lion and the Mouse. Another BBC project has reproduced these tales using animation and use of more traditional language. The children may find it harder to understand the wording but will hopefully be able to follow with the combined use of the animation. You may like to watch the whole clip, particularly of you are interested in animation. However, if you wanted to just watch the story, it is found between 4mins 30sec and 20 mins.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b03ywcck/five-fables-2-the-mouse-and-the-lion

You can also find the story on the first link along with a transcript to read if you find the language tricky in this version.

**Tuesday**

Today, we are going to look at some connecting words again.

Notice that the part of the sentence that has been glued on with the connective can be wheeled to the front of the sentence!

Let’s see which connectives can help us link ideas and move the story on smoothly in The Lion and the Mouse by completing the __Connectives Challenge 2.__

Another skill that we use when writing stories/fables are describing words… adjectives.

You may also want to remember your magpie skills and steal some of the lovely adjectives from these games for your own work!! Tomorrow we will be planning a fable so you could keep this work handy or copy the list of words somewhere safe!

**Wednesday**

We are going to design our own fable.

Note the morals on slide 2 – can you think of a story idea that would match one of these??

**Thursday**

Today, we are going to write a fable. You can use the plan that you filled in yesterday and you may like to work with

in front of you so that you can link your ideas smoothly.

Use your plan to make paragraphs and remember to describe your characters in appearance and facial expressions as you go through your story.

Make sure you only use a couple of lines of speech so you don’t get bogged down with the tricky punctuation and lose your lovely description.

**Friday**

**ANGLO SAXONS**

I have put the final 2 pages of the book onto Seesaw, or you can read them below

However, this week we are going back in the story to the ritual of Arthur and the sword, in the stone circle. There are some comprehension questions relating to that part of the story (the text is scanned below the questions to help you) and there is some information and questions on Stonehenge which is a famous stone circle in Wiltshire, England.

**Spelling**

**Friday**

This week we will be looking at the ‘sion’ sound. Pick from the activities below to help you practise your spellings this week.

**History**

**ANGLO SAXON CHRONICLES**

The Anglo Saxon Chronicle is a collection of written records which tell us about the history of the Anglo Saxons. Listen to this BBC clip for more information.

**https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zw2xpv4**

The books were written and decorated by hand, usually by priests and monks. They were seen as very precious works of art, and you had to be very skilled to produce them. The manuscripts were called ‘illuminated’ because the letters and pictures were often decorated with gold and silver leaf.

An illuminated letter was usually the first letter of a page or paragraph. It was enlarged and in colour, with gold or silver added in areas, while the rest of the text was in black. Images of people, animals, plants or mythological creatures were sometimes added to enhance the letter.

Design your own illuminated letter, or create a page from the Anglo Saxon Chronicle.

**Science**

**Tuesday**

**SOUND**

Today you are going to use your knowledge and understanding of sound, including pitch and loudness, to design and create your own musical instrument!

Watch the video using the link on slide 2 to see the variety of sounds you can get from musical instruments that are made from junk, and then have a think about what you would like to make yourself from things around your house that your parents are happy for you to use. If you are struggling to come up with an idea, I have put a simple suggestion on slide 4. We would love to hear a recording of you playing your instrument on Seesaw!

Watch Buddha and the Mustard Seed and think about the lesson that it teaches us: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dS433t0yI6E

You may like to watch it through a couple of times and think about how we view tough times – whether we feel sorry for ourselves or whether we look to remember what other people are experiencing.

Choose one of the four stories we have looked at to write about in our __‘__** Reflections about Buddhists Stories’** sheet. Aim for two clear sentences in the final box.

**Monday**

This week, we will be using our letter writing skills again and we will also be thinking about using conjunctions to join our ideas in interesting sentences. You can learn more about these by watching the clips and completing the exercises at:

**https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z48xt39**

I must warn you that you may want to stop Laura Bubble before she’s finished if she’s driving you mad with her song!! However, if you need to give yourself a stretch, you could join in with her dance!

Our letter this week is going to be less formal but it will hopefully give you a good opportunity to reflect on your life in lockdown compared to other children around the world.

Watch the first three video diaries featured on this link: https://www.unicef.org/coronavirus/kids-video-diaries-about-life-during-covid-19

Their situations are all very different and I’m sure you can see Muna, in particular, has to cope with coronavirus in addition to having lost her home! It can make you think about all that you are able to enjoy even though we are in lockdown.

**Tuesday**

Yesterday, on our BBC site, we learnt about conjunctions that join two ideas. Today we are going to look at subordinating conjunctions that do the same job but notice that the part that joins on does not make sense on its own! Look out for the *main part of the sentence* that would make sense on its own and the *subordinating part of the sentence*, that has been joined on with the conjunction, but doesn’t make sense on its own!

Watch the BBC clip and choose whether you fancy seeing more of Laura Bubble or not! https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6kj2sg

a little tip for finding which sentence uses despite: Despite is followed by a verb that ends in –ing. For example, ‘Despite watching television for two hours, I decided to watch another film!’

**Wednesday**

Today we are going to plan a letter to one of the children who we looked at on Monday.

This activity made me think about the children in Makwati who are also in lockdown. None of those children have computers and many do not live near their school so they are unable to continue their learning at the moment.

**Thursday**

have some “true or false” questions, recapping some of the things we have learnt about sound. See how you get on with these. Then read about soundproofing from slide 14 onwards. You will need a box with something inside that makes a noise, such as an alarm clock. You need to choose some different materials to investigate which absorbs the sound most effectively. There is a list of materials that you may wish to use on slide 17 but you can choose different ones. You are then going cover the box with a single layer of each of these materials to see which is the most effective at soundproofing.

Our key ideas today are further times table practice and looking at how when you multiply by one, the answer stays the same and when multiplying by 0, the answer is always 0.

Now think about the inverse with division. So 12 ÷ 1 means how many 1s in 12… of course there are 12 ones in 12!

And 4 ÷ 4 means how many 4s in 4… of course there is only one 4 in 4!

**Measuring Volume**

Today we will look at writing millilitres as a decimal.

If 1 litre = 1000ml, then

0.1 litre = 100ml

0.2 litre = 200ml

0.3 litre = 300ml and so on.

We’ll also look at estimating volume today. Look through the cupboards at home and estimate the capacity of any bottles or jars that you find. Write down your guess in ml or l and then write down how much each container actually holds. Calculate the difference.

We are going to be having some fun with some fairy tale characters this week. We are also going to have a look at how to write a letter.

Look carefully at the example on slide 2 and answer the questions on slide 1.

Then fill in the chart like on slide 2 which you may want to draw out in your book, using a ruler, of course.

Answer the questions on the second slide then start to plan some ideas about what your fairy tale baddie has been doing to upset their neighbours!!! Perhaps the bad wolf has been trying to blow your house down or climbing on people’s roofs and knocking on their windows! Perhaps there is a witch who lives down your road who’s always putting spells on people, offering people poisoned apples to eat and jumping through red traffic lights on her broom! Perhaps the ugly sisters are gossiping about everyone and being mean!

This week we will continue reading ‘Arthur Warrior Chief’ by Mick Gower to compliment the work we are doing in History on the Anglo Saxons.

You do not need to read the whole book to complete the English lessons (but it would be great if you did!), as we will be looking at a few pages together which focus on the Anglo Saxons.

Today we will be looking at the battle between the Saxons and the Britons. I have copied it underneath the questions so you won’t need to keep flicking back and forth to find it on the scanned pages.

Once you have read the page please answer these questions:

**Thursday**

Today, we are going to plan a letter complaining about out baddie.

- Which character might you write as? You could be the gingerbread man, Little Red Riding Hood, Prince Charming, Cinderella, Hansel or Gretel, the local woodcutter or one of the three pigs??
- Think about all the naughty things that you wrote down yesterday. Who could your character be writing to? Perhaps you’re writing to the mayor or the king/queen.

- Be inventive with your ideas. Could you make up a suitable address for your characters. You might need a grown up to help you with the layout of an address: person’s name, house number and road name, town, postcode.

**Friday**

Today we are going to write up our letter in our best handwriting. You may like to mark out faintly with a pencil and ruler where you want ot write the addresses and the dates so that you place them in the correct position on your page.

Remember that if you can’t tick a box, edit your work to improve it.

This week we will look again at ‘ous’. Remember that adding ‘ous’ has three rules:

1) If the root word doesn't change, just add 'ous' - e.g danger ----> dangerous

2) If the word ends in 'e', drop the e and add 'ous' - e.g. fame ----> famous

3) If the word ends in 'y' change it to an 'i' and add 'ous' - e.g. vary ----> various

This week we are looking at times tables in division again. Here is a really clear video lesson with some methods that you might like to use: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvQtf-MEWiM

We are going to start by thinking about our times tables to fill in the grid on slide 1.

Then we are going to look at numbers that give a remainder when we divide.

to count up to see how many of a certain number fit in to a larger number. For example, take the number 11. When you count up in 5s, you can fit two 5s in. They don’t fit exactly. There is one left over – this is called the remainder.

Again try the second and third slide using objects such as lego bricks or pencils to physically divide the number up if it helps.

Make sure you understand the work we did on division with remainders last week before you start this work.

We are going to learn how to do short division.

do the calculations yourself on a piece of paper to help you follow the method.

The calculation on slide 2 is straight forward as both the tens number and ones number are in the two times table.

The calculations on slide 3 and onwards are trickier because the digits in the tens column do not divide exactly by the divisor. Follow the instructions on the slide very carefully until you understand what to do.

Work through the rest of the examples carefully and keep checking your work. Go through the examples as many times as you need to until you understand how to do these.

**Tue**

**Georgians Maths**

We are going to be using our times tables to solve worded problems for the next two sessions.

I always say that the key to these questions is to give your brain to digest the information so we must read the question once, ** then again, then again… then again if necessary. **Sometimes by reading through slowly more than once, our brains start organising the numbers and have time to think before we start our working out!

Then complete ** p.83** and

__p. 84.__Take note of the advice in red. If you want to fill in the boxes, then you can but completing working out in any space and in the way that makes sense to you works just as well!

I particularly like the clip where the girl cuts the end off the straw that the boy is blowing and makes the pitch higher. If you have any instruments in your house, have a look at them to see how to make high and low notes; if the instrument belongs to someone else, make sure that you ask them to do this task with you.

If you have any drinking straws, see if you can make panpipes (at the end of the PowerPoint) with different length straws. It may take a while to cut the end of the straw so that you get a sound, but it is worth persevering.

Can you write out your 6x table and see if you can notice any patterns? Now use it to practise with the YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2JdnZbB2dg

Have you still got your twelve times table from yesterday?

In addition to the method we looked at yesterday, it shows you how to do short multiplication. Some of you will understand this and find it a quicker method. Do not worry if you find this too hard; you can carry on using yesterday’s method.

**SOUND**

Carry out the investigation with rice on a drum skin using something like a biscuit tin in place of a drum skin. If you have a musical instrument, see if you can work out what is vibrating to create the sound. Explore different objects in your house and work out what is vibrating. It might be the air or the floor for example, or if you extend your investigation to look at pets and people, it may be vocal chords.
