It's been lovely to be able to chat with some of you on the phone this week. I will be phoning every Wednesday to try and keep in touch with you all and to see how you all are so if you were one of the sleepyheads who missed me becuase you were still in bed when I called this week, don't worry, I will be calling again :-)

Some of you have shared some fantastric work with me this week: a brilliant story written by Amirah with a fantastic setting description and Sami's Jabberwocky comprehension blew my socks off! If you didn't manage to do these tasks you can still have a go today. I will be uploading new work for you to do next week on Monday.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Love from Mrs Hudson x

Wilson class have been busy with their home-learning this week. This brilliant story was written by Amirah. I think you'll all agree it has a super setting description that paints a really clear picture for the reader!

Here is another example of the fantastic work that has been done at home by Wilson class this week. This work has been completed by Sami. I wonder if everyone wrote similar answers for The Jabberwocky reading comprehension. It was so interesting to learn that this powerful learner thought that the nonsense word 'brillig' sounded snowy or wet, when to me it sounds bright and sunny. This is one of the reasons why I love poetry so much; because it can be interpreted in so many different ways. As long as there is reasoning behind your thoughts and ideas, which Sami has shown brilliantly by using evidence from the text to support his answers, there can be lots of different ways to answer the question correctly 🙂

Hello and happy new summer term!

Hello Wilson class! Happy Monday!

Each Monday, I will upload new task work for you to do at home for the whole week. You can email your work to me at year4@miriamlord.bradford.sch.uk and then every Friday I will post a new video on the year 4 page of our website sharing the work that you’ve done.

Enjoy this video and then try to work your way through the learning tasks.

Love from Mrs Hudson x


This term in Wilson class we are going to begin a unit on poetry.  There are many different types of poetry.  We have already explored ‘Found Poetry’ in The Den when we were reading The Bluest of Blues and ‘Shared Poetry’ in class when we were reading The Robot and The Bluebird.  You all had a good go at writing Love Hate poems for Mr Harrison earlier this year and we have also studied a rhyming poem about Italian Food in guided reading during our class topic on Italy last term.  There are still many more types of poetry to explore and we wanted to start you off this term with a very famous ‘Nonsense Poem’.

 

Before hearing the poem being performed, have a little think why you think it might be called a nonsense poem?  

 

Task 2: Listen to the poem being performed again but this time try and follow the text at the same time.

Task 3: Jabberwocky Reading Comprehension

Try and complete the reading comprehension questions.  Remember to scan the text and use your trapping fingers to retrieve evidence from the text but you will also need to use your imagining and reasoning muscles to infer what the nonsense words mean!  You can copy the questions and write the answers out and then photograph your work and email it to me at year4@miriamlord.bradford.sch.uk or if you’re lucky enough to have a printer at home, you can use the template and then upload it and email it to me.

The Jabberwocky reading comprehension

The Jabberwocky reading comprehension 1

Extra Challenge:

What noise did it make? Make up your own nonsense words to describe the noise it made.  You could make these words up using Portmanteau this is when a word is made up by combining two or more other words for example:

  • Motel is a portmanteau combining the words motor and hotel
  • Smog is a portmanteau combining the words smoke and fog
  • Ginormous is a portmanteau combining the words gigantic and enormous

 

Extra extra challenge:

What could ‘frabjous’ mean in verse 6? Think of at least four meanings that would make sense in the sentence then try and invent your own nonsense adjectives to replace it!

 

Task 4

Can you do any independent research about the poet Lewis Carroll and complete a little profile about the author? What other poems or books has he written?  Which is he most famous for?  When was he born?  Where was he born? etc.

 

Maths:  Adding Fractions

 

You’ve already learnt to add fractions in Wilson Class so here is a chance to recap and revise what you’ve learnt in school earlier this year.

 

Task 1

Watch the video on the BBC bitesize website by following this link:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zmhr92p

Task 2

Complete the online interactive ‘Activity 1’

 

 

 

 

Task 3: Have a go at these questions!

Year 4 – Enrichment

 

This week I want you to think very hard about your 5 senses and become mindful about what you can see, hear, smell, touch and taste. 

 

Activity 1:

 

I want you to choose one day this week and spend time outside either in your garden or in a public open green space or park (as long as you keep 2m away from other people) and write down 1 thing for each of your senses (5 in total).

 

Please email me the things you sensed so we can use it to inspire our poetry.

 

 

Fun Weekend Activity:

 

Have a go at this scavenger hunt and try and collaborate with a family member to find all the things! Email Mrs Hudson at year4@miriamlord.bradford.sch.uk to let me know what you found and how you collaborated.

 

Competition Time!

JK Rowling is releasing a new book and if you logon to the Ickabog website she is releasing 1 or 2 chapters each day and then inviting children to create illustrations for it!  It’s time to dust of those art pencils and get drawing Wilson class!  Don’t forget to email me your illustrations at year4@miriamlord.bradford.sch.uk

Hello year 4 and welcome to week 6 of home learning!

Have a look at these posters and think about how we are all using our collaborating muscles to beat the coronavirus. Try and compare them to the WW2 posters in the slideshow below and think about the questions. Perhaps you can then have a go at designing your own poster that will encourage people to collaborate in order to help beat covid-19.

Have a look at these WW2 posters and think about what's similar and what's different to the messages we see and hear today. Collaborate with someone at home to have a discussion about the questions I've put with each image. Have fun!

In Year 4 we used their Making links and Noticing muscles to create a representation of the digestive system. We used a plastic sealed bag of the stomach, a stocking for the small intestine and a cup for the large intestine and anus. It didn’t smell or look great but it did help us to understand the different parts of the digestive system.

                                                   24.10.19     P.H.S.C.E- Drugs and Substance Abuse 

 

The children in year 4 used there making links and reasoning muscle to learn all about drugs and substance abuse today. They learnt the four main categories of drugs which are prescribed, over the counter, socially accepted and illegal. They learnt the side effects each drug can have on the human body and mind. We discussed how expensive the drugs can be and how an addiction can cost hundreds of pounds and how it can ruin people’s lives. They had a quiz at the end of the lesson which is always fun.

11.10.19                                      Exploring material for a Prototype Trebuchet

 

The children used their making links and collaboration muscle to explore making a prototype trebuchet. They explore the different materials they could use for the arm to discover the best option. They looked at different ways to attach the throwing arm to the base. The class assessed their trebuchet as they made it as they had to overcome many problems such as raising the base to ensure they throwing arm could move freely and making sure the upright frame did not come in the way of the bucket. What a fun afternoon filled with learning!

Year 4 have had a great time enhancing their their D.T skills this week. They used their noticing and collaborating muscles to saw and drill square wooden dowel for their trebuchets (catapults). It was tricky but they persevered and can now use both equipment safely.

Year 4 had an amazing time at the Den today working with Mr Green. They re-enacted the Battle of Hastings to explore why a hill can be used as defence. They worked together to make a motte and bailey castle using what they could find in the Den. They practised making reinforced frames for the gates of the castle using elastic bands and square dowel which proved to be very tricky. Finally they worked in small groups to practise their sawing skills to make arrows. Then they had a go at firing them. It was a fun filled day with lots of learning.
