Welcome to the Home Learning Area for Year 4. Below is a list of activities for your children to complete throughout the week, at their own leisure.
The Home Learning Area will be updated for the start of every Monday and feedback will be provided on the tasks completed by the children.
Thank you very much for your co-operation during this time.
In the top left-hand corner select 'Curriculum for Wales'. Then, from the 'Library', choose 'Fractions'. Then select 'Y5 - Simple equivalent fractions'. Click on 'Lesson', where you will find some practice tasks.
I would like you to have a go at the activities available here before completing the task that has been set to you this week.
The task can be found here: https://app.mymaths.co.uk/85-homework/simple-equivalent-fractions
If you don't get things correct first time, keep trying the tasks until you have a better understanding or ask for help.
Think about your learning on natural disasters so far and write a poem. You could focus on:
Think about the type of poem you'd like to write. Do you want each line to rhyme? Would you like to write a haiku? Or maybe an acrostic poem? It's up to you! Don't forget to share your work with me - perhaps you could even record yourself reading the poem and I can post it on the class page for others to see.
Emmonsail's Heath in Winter - Higher order thinking skills
The Song of the Armadillo - Reading book
Topic Work: Composing Music
For this task, I would like you to go to 'Chrome Music Lab' and select 'Song Maker'.
Create a piece of music for a documentary on natural disasters. Try and show how suspense and tension builds through music. Perhaps you could use different instruments to represent natural phenomena e.g drums for waves crashing?
When you are happy with your composition, use the tick at the bottom right of the page to save your work. Please could you send the work on to me by copying and pasting the link given to you and e-mailing it to me?
If you'd like an extra challenge, maybe you could write a small paragraph or draw a picture of what you imagine would be happening whilst the music is playing in your documentary scene?
