You could gather some stones, branches, leaves, flowers etc.. Place a ribbon or a stick down the centre and then create your pattern. Use the images below as an example. Don’t forget to take a picture - I’d love to see your creations!

Dear Year 4,

 

In the folders below I have included some work for this coming week. I suggest doing one Literacy and Numeracy activity each day.

You will know if you are a monkey, rabbit or bear so please only do the work for your group.

Our new topic is ‘Electricity’ I have attached a short PowerPoint for you to look at which has some very interesting facts (you will find this in the WAU folder). Your challenge this week is to create a poster to encourage people to be safe when using electricity (more details in WAU folder).

You should now be on Week 4 of your Spellings and Tables – I will upload a new set the following week. Keep practicing them and maybe get your mum or dad to test you! (You might even get a treat if you get 10 out of 10).

Now that home learning has commenced online here is my contact c2k email address

 In the unprecedented circumstances we face, unfortunately we will not be able to mark all set work and give pupil feedback that normally occurs in the life a classroom. Only work requested by the teacher will be required to be forwarded via the teacher school e-mail address. If you do not wish or it does not suit you to send work, there is no obligation to do so.

Topic Challenge!

You have to think really hard if appliances uses mains power or battery power! We have to plug an item into the socket for it to work if it requires mains power for example, a lamp. What does a fridge use? What does a Nintendo use? Can you name any appliances in your kitchen that use mains power? Can you find any items in your bedroom that use batteries?

I have attached below a Venn diagram. I would like you to cut out different electrical appliances that use mains or battery power BUT be careful as some might use both, for example a torch! An old Argos catalogue would be perfect for this activity but don’t worry if you don’t have one as you could also draw and label your items. 

I would love to see your Venn diagrams, please feel free to email them to eduncan674@c2kni.net
