Home Learning 6th July

Good morning Year 4,

I hope you’re all keeping safe and well.

What a mixed week of weather we have had! Well done to those who have sent me some work in. Have you enjoyed reading each others work on the blog?

Some of you will be looking forward to your half day in school next week- how exciting. You will be able to catch up with Mr Johnston and see a few of your classmates for a whole morning. I really wish I was there to see you all. Do send me some work and blog how you enjoyed it!

PLEASE NOTE: Book exchange will run for this week only, it is your final chance to collect some books for the holiday period. There will be no book exchange next week.

Don’t forget the BBC Bitesize website has lots of great lessons and videos on all subjects- Geography, science, history etc.

Take a look.

Writing

This week I would like you to choose something to write about.

It can be FICTION or NON-FICTION. You can choose what it is about.

If it is FICTION think about these things:

  • is it an adventure/action/fantasy/mythical or suspense story
  • only have a few characters
  • think about 5 parts – beginning, build up, problem, resolution, end
  • write in clear paragraphs
  • use a variety of sentences, check the punctuation and tense use

If it is NON-FICTION think about these things:

  • is it a non-chronological report/instructions/newspaper article/information page/guide
  • use clear facts and present it in the correct style (remember who is reading it)
  • use appropriate words related the the subject you are writing about
  • check you punctuation and tense use

If it helps, find a picture for ideas to go with your writing. I am really looking forward to reading these. Please email them to me when you are done.

Mega City clip

Watch this short clip and then have ago at writing a story of the video. I have had a go too. You could use my sentence starters to complete yours, or you could write your own.

As the darkness blanketed the city skyline, Jack watched the weary workers, huddled under their umbrellas, trudge past. He saw no faces as they shielded from the rain…or were they shielding from his sad, begging eyes, determined not to drop a coin or two. Some did though. Clink into the soft, well-worn cap they fell. Excitedly, Harry would greet the hand, but it was gone all too soon. No one wanted to stop. No chatting today.

Time to go, it seems Harry was hungry as he offered Jack the hat with a splattering of coins. Jack, too tired to argue, too cold to care, mounted his bike and within a second Harry had jumped onto the back.

They sped through, as fast as they could, puddles splashing up, rain pouring down, and wind blowing across. Every which way, the elements were on them.

Home at last, the coins tinkled into the vast jar. Jack sighed. Was it ever going to fill? Slumping back onto the bed, Harry became his blanket. Another day done. The dream. Mega City Motors…one day.

Another day. Another few coins. Clink, clink. Chink, chink, Clunk. The jar IS filling! The days are getting brighter!

Today, a beautifully bright day and as Jack and Harry venture onto new pastures one thing is for certain. Jack needs to let Harry know how special he is. Only one way to do that. He pours plenty of crunchy Wellbeloved dog food into a bowl and watches as Harry munches away with his face delving into the food. Before long he is rushing off into the countryside…

Here are my sentence starters:

As the darkness blanketed the city skyline,

Time to go,

They sped through,

Home at last,

Another day.

Today,
