Wednesday English

Today we are going to revise inverted commas or speech marks. We have already worked on these a few times in Year 3 and Year 4. How many of the rules can you remember?

 

Below I have posted a powerpoint showing how to use inverted commas.

 

  • Speech marks are used around the words in direct speech.

“Hello there!” called Helen.

  • Start a new line whenever someone new speaks.
  • Begin the direct speech with a capital letter.
  • Remember to use your other punctuation. This includes a piece of punctuation before closing the inverted commas.

 

Now complete these sentences in your English book. Remember to join your writing neatly.

 

  1. What’s for dinner dad? Jacinta asked her dad.
  2. The witch looked at her sisters and asked, When will we three meet again?
  3. The mouse looked at the fox and quivered, Please don’t eat me.
  4. I’m stuck declared Sam as he held up his hands. Can you help me please?
  5. John, can you hold this? Asked Joanna.
  6. Off with her head! Shouted the Queen of Hearts.
  7. The policeman asked, Can I see your licence please?

Wednesday’s Maths

 

Something a bit different today! I wonder if you can crack these emoji codes?

 

I am posting 2 photo below as I know it can be tricky to use documents if you are using a phone to see your home learning.

I am also posting this as a document which you can open on a device or computer.

 

Let me know how you get on!

More Maths…..

 

Twinkl has a massive range of maths worksheets available if you wish to supplement the daily class maths.

 

The White Rose website has stopped providing free worksheets for children, though you can still access the video clips for free.

 

 

Optional Creative time:

 

Keeping up to date:

Watch Newsround and discuss what is happening in the wider world. Talk to your family about the stories which are on today. What do you think?

 

 

 Why not have a family game of Scrabble – a great way to practise your spelling.

 

 

How about making some birthday cards for the next birthdays in your family or friends.

 

 

Make a time capsule

 

Here is a lovely idea for something to look back on when you are older.    Make a little time capsule in a tin or plastic box. You could even bury it in the garden, or put it away safely until you are a lot older! It will be something interesting to look back on.

 

 

   

 

 Everyday learning:

 

Active Time

Choose a physical activity that you will enjoy.

This might be:

 

  • You can find Pav’s work out activities! You can find his workouts in the resources section. Have a look at Week 4.
  • PE with Joe! (Joe Wicks’ daily workout on YouTube)
  • Set up your own carousel – you could include running, jumping, kangaroo hops, mummy kicks, star jumps. Do 30 seconds of each in rotation, then repeat two or three times.
  • How many laps of your garden can you run in 10 minutes? Can you continue without walking? If that is hard work, you could run one lap, and then walk one lap.

 

 

Reading: Aim for at least one of these each day.

 

  • Read independently – this could be your own book or a book from the Bug Club books which also have activities to complete – comprehension questions and little quizzes.
  • Twinkl and Oxford Owls also have a selection of eBooks you can read online, and you can also visit the Norfolk library service and "borrow" online books. 
  • Read to an adult or older sibling. Talk about your book and what you are enjoying. Can you read with really good expression and intonation? Can you use voices for the different characters?
  • You can also read magazines, comics or newspapers – ask your parents for ideas of what else you could read. How about a recipe book, machine manual or instruction booklet?
  • Remember to explore new vocabulary when you read. Can you look in a dictionary to find out what new words mean?
  • Remember, you can keep a reading record at the back of your writing book if you like.

 

Spellings: aim for 10 minutes a day.

Practise some of the spelling words you need to learn.

Start with the Year one / two words and find out which ones you still need to learn. You can tick the ones you can spell off by heart. If you are confident with all of these, you can begin learning the Year 3 and 4 words.

 

Pick 4 or 5 a day and use LOOK-SAY-COVER-WRITE-CHECK to practise each one. 

 

Times tables: aim for 10 minutes a day.

 

2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 8s and 10s for Year 3. 

Year 4 – Your goal is to know all the times tables up to 12 x 12.

Write out the table you are learning from memory. Then ask an adult to muddle them up. Ask them to test you.

You can also play Hit the Button online, which is an easy and fun way to practise tables.

 

And to finish: Here is the answer to Monday’s riddle:

 

Riddle:   What has four eyes but can’t see?

Answer:   Mississippi!

 

Wednesday’s riddle:

What’s black and white and blue? (Excuse my sense of humour!)

 

I will post the answer on Thursday.
