It was Pentecost Sunday on the 31st May so I’ve prepared some activities around this very special day in the Church calendar.

  • Pentecost reading comprehension (answers at the back)
  • Pentecost word scramble

Part of our learning in Year 4 is to learn about different suffixes (endings added to the stem of words which change them into nouns, adjectives or verbs).  

Maths

I’d like you to go through the videos and activities on BBC Bitesize to revise equivalent fractions:

Also here’s a couple of worksheets to make sure you’ve got it:

Times tables – I’ve attached a times tables worksheet that will help you to see which times tables you still have to learn.

RE

Take a look at this PowerPoint presentation, think about the questions at the end and then complete this activity:

  • What made you become friends?
  • What do you do together?
  • What do you like about your friend?
  • Is there anything you don’t like about your friend?
  • Is there anything your friend doesn’t like about you?
  • In what ways have you helped to change one another?
  • Collate and classify your findings under headings:
  • ‘Why we made friends’ and ‘Why we stayed friends’.
  • You could put all your work into a presentation and share to admin@stsaviours.lewisham.sch.uk

Well done to Elizabeth for her super Easter learning and Daniel for his fantastic St George fact file.  

Keep them coming in!

Revise adding and subtracting fractions – there’s a worksheet on each – 

Make sure you keep up with your times tables.  

If you don’t know them already, this week learn your 7 times tables by watching this:

Multiply and 2 digit number by a 1 digit number.  

Go to BBC Bitesize, watch the videos to remind yourself of what to do and then complete the activities:

Topic

We would be learning about Morse Code as a way of communicating if we were at school but this also fits in very well with VE Day celebrations this week.  

Try and work out the code using the alphabets at the back – 

RE

This week read about St Peter and St John as they start to spread the Good News about Jesus in the PPT presentation and then prepare a set of questions for Peter and John to find out why they did what they did. Use these to interview Peter and John through an interview scenario.  

You could write out the questions and answers like we’ve done quite a few times in class.

In addition please do some independent research on England’s patron saint and make a fact file or poster to show all you have learnt.  Please include drawings and Did you know top facts!  Ask your adult to take a photo and send to:

Topic

We would be starting to learn about robots and communications this half term and so to start off this topic I would like to ask you to do a DT project.  Have a look on the internet to get some ideas and then have a go and using up some of your recycling and making a junk robot.  You could use a cereal box for the body and a tissue box for its head perhaps. What about kitchen roll tubes for the arms?

https://www.activityvillage.co.uk/junk-robot

There’s loads of ideas on pinterest.

If you can read The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.  If you can’t get a copy there are some free downloads or you can hear it read to you for free (30 day free trial) on Audible:

Easter Holiday Home Learning

It’s now the start of the two weeks Easter holidays but here are some lessons and activities to keep your mind ticking over.  If you need to finish any of last weeks’ activities or want to continue with your paper pack then that’s great too. Please remember to email through any work that you are proud of to: admin@stsaviours.lewisham.sch.uk

There is some English and Maths and also:

RE

We are now in the most important part of the Church calendar.  With parental permission, please take a look at the YouTube channel our wonderful Priests have set up, where you can set “live” Masses: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCttUCYWMoNehfG_PxW1r5Bw?app=desktop

You can also click through from the Church’s website.

Things you could do:
1. A local church is encouraging people to make a cross out of anything they have in the house…socks, books, eggs, pencils…and share the pictures. What can you make yours out of? Please do email in any photos of your crosses and I will share for everyone to admin@stsaviours.lewisham.sch.uk
2. You could make a cardboard box with a hole in the front into the tomb of Jesus, make 3 crosses to go on top and roll a stone in front of the hole until Easter Sunday. Then roll away the stone and place a torch or silver foil inside and then draw lots of flowers allover the tomb.
3. You could listen to some Easter songs on Youtube
4. You could draw to display in your house to remind your family of the hope that we have in Jesus.
5. You could read Matthew chapters 26 and 27 and 28 .

Castles Project for all ages
 

Class 4 Work 30.3.20

In addition to your printed home learning packs, here are some extra resources that you might like to do with your child at home this week.  There are English and Maths resources plus an Easter craft activity.  Then RE, topic and PE ideas.

 
RE:
Reflect: What good deeds did you do this week? Write a prayer to ask God to help you to get closer to Jesus in this time of Lent.

Think of when Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey. If you can, read Holy Gospel according to Matthew, 21:1-11. If possible watch clips on BBC Bitesize:

Draw a picture or a storyboard to represent what happened. What would Jesus say to the people of Jerusalem?

Challenge: Draw your own palm tree leaf (template attached) and write what sort of welcome would you organise, if Jesus were to enter Lewisham today.  Take a photo and get your adult to email it to the school and we will upload it to the school website.

TOPIC – Stormy Weather:

Create a daily weather diary.  You could split this into 2 sections, one for Lewisham/ London and one for Topeka, Kansas, USA which is one of the cities in Tornado alley which we were learning about.  Are there similarities and differences?  Get your adult to take a picture of your diary (it could be a little book like we made for World Book Day or a chart) and we will upload it to the school website!

PE

I have been trying the Joe Wicks workout for kids on YouTube – it’s only about 30 minutes and daily Monday-Friday.  It’s great.
