Monday 8th March

Here are the lessons and activities we are completing in school today. Remember to upload your work onto Class Dojo so we can see how hard you have been working. 
Maths
Today in Maths we are revising our times table knowledge. You might want to use this poster to help you complete today's activities. 
Have a look at the activities below and use your times table knowledge to complete each one. 
English

This week throughout all of our English lessons, we are going to focus on a series of dictation sentences. This involves the teacher reading out a number of sentences, slowly and clearly in order for you all to write the sentence out as best as you can. This is a fantastic way to ensure our listening skills are put into practise along with using the grammatical skills we have learnt in previous lessons. Through dictation, there will be a focus on spellings, punctuation and grammar.

When you have completed a dictation sentence, we are going to use our imaginations to create a piece of writing.

Look at the picture of the secret door carefully. Using this picture, create a descriptive piece of writing of your choice. This could be  a setting description of what may sit behind the door, is there a magical land filled with mythical creatures perhaps? Or instead you may want to write your very own story based on the mysterious door.

Science
As this week is Science Week, we are taking part in a very special project where we will use lots of our Skills Builder skills. This week, Year 4 have been tasked with a challenge to design a healthy meal idea for children to eat at lunchtimes. Today we will discover how the digestive system works and how healthy foods benefit the body. Have a look at the power point to discover more about the digestive system and to see your tasks to complete today.  
Use the information sheet and body diagram below to draw and label each part of the digestive system. Remember to use the correct spelling for each of the body parts you are naming. 
Mindfulness
Throughout the day, we will have lots of brain and motor breaks while we get used to being back in school again. You might want to have a go at some of the relaxing activities below in between completing your work today.
