# Fractions of Numbers 25.03.20

In the post below, I mentioned a video and worksheets for maths. Here is your work for today. Copy the question into your purple books and work out the answers. Don’t forget to use your square guide.

Pink paper people- you don’t need to copy the full question, just the fraction and the number you are working out.

You can choose which challenge you’d like to answer from the following:

Pink paper people, you have these questions instead of the big maths ones:

Hello Year 4

P.E
Joe Wicks is back everyday at 9:00am. Have fun!

Spelling and Handwriting

I would like you to ask an adult or sibling at home to test you on your spelling words in your purple book.
You can share your score on here if you would like me to know. You will get your new spellings on Thursday.
For handwriting practice, choose the last 5 of your words and write them up in a sentence. Remember to use your line guide.
Well done to Lily, for your 100% accuracy in the spelling Sumdog challenge.

English
Many of you should have researched your facts on Francis Drake. Don’t worry if you haven’t, you can magpie some of my facts.

Could you write a fact file on Francis Drake in your purple books. I have given you some sub-headings to use. You can create your own if you want to. I have made notes which you can use, these need to be made into full sentences and you might have some facts to add. Don’t forget to use a line guide.

Maths
Well done to Libby, Aaron and Oliver for having 100% accuracy on your multiplication challenge!
Well done to everyone who has done their CLIC and SAFE challenges. If you have Learn Its left to do, could you complete these.
There will be another multiplication challenge on Sumdog. This one is a competition, so good luck!

In a separate post, you will have a video reminding you how to find fractions of numbers. I will also post some questions for you to answer in your purple books. Remember to use your square guide. Mrs Smith’s maths group- you can attempt some of the questions if you would like. You will also have a challenge on Sumdog.

History
See what you can recall about Anglo Saxons from this term. You have your knowledge organisers and you can do extra research if you need to. Don’t worry if this takes you longer than today!

1. Who were the Saxons?
2. Where did they come from?
3. How did they travel to Britain?
4. Name 3 Saxon Gods
5. What did they call Monday?
6. What were the Anglo Saxon letters of the alphabet called?
7. Name 2 important things the Saxons would need access to in order to build their village?
8. What was the name of the monk who brought Christianity to Britain?

Hope you are all well.

# A new way of learning

Hello Year 4 and welcome to your virtual classroom.

Over the next few weeks, I will post on here with tasks and activities that you can complete at home in your purple workbook. Please check the blog every morning for the day’s tasks. Some of the activities I would like you to complete are:

Reading for at least 15 minutes per day. You can read anything you would like. I would like to find out about what you’ve been reading and you can fill that in in your purple book or reading record.

Weekly spellings- you can still use your target book to complete these. You can use these words as part of your handwriting practice.

Maths activity will either be on ‘Sumdog’ https://pages.sumdog.com/ (you will need to use your login details to access these that are stuck in the front of your purple book) or for you to complete using your square guide in your purple books.

CLIC/SAFE/Learn It challenges- I will tell you when I would like these challenges doing online. You should know your login, but I will post this when it is time to complete your first challenge.

I will begin setting work for you to complete on Monday so please check back then for another update.
You can use the blog at any time and I will check it regularly to answer any questions. Please use the blog to let me know how you all are.
Stay safe and I look forward to hearing from you.

Miss Ward 😊
