Year 4: Home Learning Update

Good morning!
Just a friendly reminder, if you are a Year 4 pupil and have not yet joined our Year 4 Google Classroom please do so. I’d love to have you on board. Please contact school for the join code 🙂 

Here are your two tasks for Monday and Tuesday of this week:

1) Maths 

Please complete… –
Spice 1 – Page 87 Textbook 2 –
Spice 2 – Page 88 Textbook 2 
(Feel free to do both pages if you wish). 

This activity involves you dividing! As many of you know, the opposite of multiplication is division 🙂 
E.g. 20 x 5 = 100 100 ÷ 5 = 20
Many of the sums you need to do involve using your times tables! If you struggle with your times tables, this is a great opportunity to get practising them (Both to help you now and in Year 5! 🙂 
E.g. If doing 100 ÷ 2 = ____ THINK… __ x 2 = 100 If 5 x 2 = 10, 50 x 2 must equal 100 Therefore, 100 ÷ 2 = 50

If doing Spice 2, you will get sums like, e.g. 136 x 3 For this, again use your times tables! If 10 x 3 = 30, 100 x 3 must equal 300 30 x 3 = 90 6 x 3 = 18 Answer = 408 (300 + 90 + 18) 

Good luck. Any questions, please ask 🙂


2) Non-Fiction

**Please only complete once you have finished the lesson 1 activity** 

Last week you were asked to look at good and bad examples of expositions! These were both linked to the same topic: ‘Are footballers paid too much?’ As promised, I will now go over the features of a good success criteria! Many of you would have included these in your table from lesson 1 🙂 

-Opening paragraph which explains the topic being discussed. 
-Arguments ‘for’ including evidence to back this up. 
-Arguments ‘against’ including evidence to back this up. 
-Written in the present tense. 
-Optional: Used logical language, e.g.Therefore, However. 
-Optional: Used connectives to add detail to sentences, e.g. but, although, also, because. 
-Conclusion which summarises the points you’ve made and explain your own, personal opinion. 

 Your task for this week is to edit an exposition. While the exposition text I’ve attached is okay, there are lots of ways it can be improved (I’ll leave you to decide in which areas it is in most need of improvement!) Please see the attached document. Good luck!!
