Year 4 Home Learning – 4/11/16

Task 1 – Maths

There are challenges relating to rounding and timetables set on Manga High.

Task 2 – Literacy

The children are currently engaged in writing a story based on the book ‘How to be a Viking’.  Next week we will be using adjectives and adverbs to describe the main characters, Hiccup and Old Wrinkly.  For your home learning we would like you to pick 6 adjectives or adverbs that describe each of the two characters.  Chose your favourite two adjectives or adverbs and put them into a sentence, underlining the adjective or adverb you have chosen in the sentence.

Don’t forget to add the correct punctuation!

Ongoing tasks

Times tables: Keep practising those times table facts – you need to know all facts up to 12 x 12 inside out, at the click of your fingers! Make sure you are rehearsing these facts regularly, preferably several times a week.

Reading: Remember that you should be reading on a daily basis at home, and should be discussing this reading with an adult – talking about the text, commenting on the author’s purpose, noticing particular features of certain genres, etc. In reading record books, please could children/parents write a comment about this reading.

Spellings: Remember to spend time daily learning your spellings – will you earn both of your raffle tickets this week?

If you are unable to access the home learning or are finding it difficult, please speak to your teacher.
