Year 4 remote learning week beginning 31st January 2022
Hi Year 4,
Here is your remote learning for this week if you are isolating - remember, you don't have to complete any work at home if you feel poorly! Make sure your grown ups let the school office know if you are isolating. Mrs Large will check in with them via e-mail as soon as possible to check you are all ok, and to help you with your remote learning if needs be.
Sentence level SPAG revision
In class you will have been looking at writing effective sentences. Here is some sentence based revision lessons for you. You can complete one lesson per day:
Please complete one of the following lessons each day (It is revision of things you will have learned recently, whether in school or isolating. If you were isolating last week, you may have already completed some of the lessons. That’s fine – just pick up where you left off). In school, you have recently moved on to equivalent fractions, so you may want to prioritise lesson 11 and 12, but it’s up to you: https://classroom.thenational.academy/units/fractions-ed51
Topic, Similes and Metaphors and RE
Please complete one lesson per day from the following
There are six lessons for you to follow here but you don’t need to complete all of them: https://classroom.thenational.academy/units/electrical-circuits-06f7 (If you were isolating last week you may have already completed some of these. That’s fine – just pick up where you left off.)
Similes and Metaphors
In class you will have been looking at similes to describe The Iron Man. Follow this link and watch the videos and complete the activities. Then see if you can come up with some similes to describe The Iron Man based on your knowledge from school: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zfkk7ty/articles/z9tkxfr
We would like you to explore a pillar of Islam requires Muslims to give something up. Fasting, or Sawm as it is known in Arabic, is the second pillar of Islam and is when Muslims have to forgo all food and drink during the daylight hours. There are many reasons why Muslims fast but at the heart of it is the desire to develop an understanding of what it is like to go without food and water for long periods of time, something many people around the world do on a daily basis. Appreciating what we have is heightened when we can't have it. We would like you to watch this video all about Ramadan and write a short paragraph about what you think Muslims gain from participating in this month long fasting period . Is it really just about food and drink or is there a deeper purpose? What do you think?
