Exciting news everyone!

If you have made a rainbow, send your photos in so we can put them on our blog.

Diary Challenge!

Date: 31st Mar 2020 @ 1:01pm

 Hello Year 4 😊

I hope you are all keeping safe and doing well!

We are now in our second week of working from home… and I’m sure that like me some of you (like me) might be finding it a bit tricky to keep motivated and focussed each day!

It has really helped me to make a bit of a plan each day, a bit like we do in class! I’m trying to do jobs that need more concentration in the morning… and lots of creativity in the afternoon!  I have attached some picture timetables so you can create your own if you would like to. It’s a good way to plan in some fun and exercise as well!

 

Diary Challenge

I would love to hear about all of the things you have done this week, so I am setting a diary challenge!

Write a diary of your week in your exercise book, and ask your grown up to email a picture of your writing to y4homelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk   for your teachers to read at the end of the week!

Don’t forget to:

  • Write the date
  • Write in chronological (time) order
  • Use time connectives (next, then, after that, later that day)
  • Use emotive language to show how you felt!
  • Use careful handwriting
  • Check punctuation, capital letters and spellings

I look forward to hearing all about the exciting activities and learning you have done this week!

Sentence of the Day

Date: 31st Mar 2020 @ 11:26am

Good morning year 6, today our sentence of the day will be a little bit different. What I would like you to do is to look at how I have written a list using a colon to start it and have written expanded sentences in the list which I have separated using semi colons- a very tricky type of sentence to write. 

I want you to use mine as an example and try writing one of your own. You can use the same information I have used but put it in a different order or you can think of your own ideas. 

Particularly over the past few days, I have noticed that, as a household, we could be contributing more to looking after our planet and doing our bit: recycling more, reducing the amount of rubbish going to landfill; using less electricity by switching off lights in rooms that are not occupied; switching to at least one plant-based meal per week, such as using a meat alternative like Quorn; and reducing the amount of water wasted daily, by not keeping the tap running whilst cleaning our teeth or choosing to have a quick shower rather than a bath.

I have also pinked lots of good features included in this super sentence- can you spot them all?

Please send your own versions to the blog or our email 

y6homelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk

or Tweet your sentence or a picture of it on our year 6 Twitter account

31.03.20     Good Morning Year 4!

Start your day with these morning activities! Work out the answers, and then explain to someone at home HOW you have solved them!

Sentence of the Day

1. Add all the missing punctuation and capital letters in this sentence (total 6):  

quickly tom and sam raced to the old abandoned house

 

2. Read the sentences carefully and decide if the apostrophes are showing singular (S) or plural (P) possession: 

The dogs’ toys were all over the floor.   (S or P?) 

Across the street, the car’s alarm beeped noisily.    (S or P?) 

The families’ picnics were ruined by the rain.      (S or P?) 

 

Wellbeing challenge number 3

Date: 31st Mar 2020 @ 10:49am

Hello everyone!

Today's challenge is something that I often enjoy doing when I'm feeling a little sad or worried about something.

Today I am challenging you to cook or bake something! If you can't do it today then why not plan something to make later in the week or even at the weekend? 

Take a look at this website that has plenty of easy and healthy recipes to look or see if you can invent something that includes the contents of your fridge or cupboard https://www.nhs.uk/change4life/recipes

Yesterday I made these cheese scones for me and my husband to have for lunch this week (they're not very healthy but they're very tasty and it's okay to have a little treat once in a while! cheeky)

Make sure you ask an adult to help you with any cooking or cutting and don't do anything before you check it's okay!

Have fun,

Mrs Glover

A big thanks to Miss Kenwell who sent me a picture of her sunshine yesterday (pictured below), she put my drawing to shame! laugh

Hello from Miss Wendt!

Good morning everyone! I thought today we'd start with a little scientific challenge! Our next topic is science is based around our Solar System, this links to the fabulous sentences you have been correcting and completing with Mrs Hodges! Today I would like you to find about about the 8 planets in our solar system. I have attached a guide to help, or you can download it below. Or write it on whatever paper you can find, I don't mind!

And as a little extra task, I would love you to find out what these Spanish words mean - el arco iris - I'll be back later to let you know - and set you a challenge!

...

Did anyone find out what el arco iris means? That's right, it means RAINBOW! I have loved seeing all of your rainbows on the blog and wondered if 5HW would like to make some rainbows too?! I've attached a Spanish rainbow below, and there is one for you to download and print if you would prefer. 

It's a good opportunity to practise your Spanish colour names too! Let's see who can send us a picture of their rainbow!

See you tomorrow!
