Week 5

 

Monday/ Tuesday

Activity 1

Reading – read independently for 20 mins – Come up with 5 questions you would like to ask the characters in the book.

For example, you might ask: Why they did something? Or How did they feel about that happening?

Activity 2

Writing – Imagine you are a scientist on the brink of a discovery! Write a diary capturing what is about to happen, what you have discovered, how will it affect the world?

In your diary you must include fronted adverbials e.g. Later that day, In the morning, or Yesterday,

Activity 3

Maths – Complete these questions in your books.

Round these numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000.

  1. 1348
  2. 3049
  3. 8801
  4. 6399
  5. 9090

Activity 4

Science - DO NOT OPEN THE BOTTLE! Fun experiment (Learn about pressure and forces)

Take an empty plastic bottle (any size and type will do) If you are a child, ask an adult to punch a hole in the side of the bottle with a pair of scissors or skewer. Cover the hole in the bottle with your finger and fill the bottle with plain tap water. Colour the water if you wish. Screw the cap back on and remove your finger from the hole. The water will not leak out. Pick the bottle up and squeeze it even just a little bit. Step back, because the water will pour out! You can also make the bottle “pour” by loosening and tightening the cap but remember to do it over the sink/bath or outside!

 

The science bit-When the cap is on the bottle, the air pressure in the bottle is equal to the pressure outside the bottle. When the pressure is the same, there’s nothing to force the water to leave the bottle. When you loosen or remove the cap, the water squirts out because the weight of the water has a greater pressure than the pressure outside of the bottle. Even when the cap is on tightly, picking up the bottle will squeeze it just enough to FORCE the water to squirt out.

Activity 5

Science – Forces

Make a paper helicopter to explore the effects of air resistance and gravity. Create a table to record the amount of time it takes to fall from a height to the floor. Try to find a way to make it fall slower and compare the times. What did you have to do? Draw a picture and write about your findings, as well as recording your results.

(see attachment from Twinkl to help with the initial design)

 

Wednesday/ Thursday

Activity 1

Reading – read independently for 20 mins.

Imagine you are a character in your book. Answer your questions from the previous reading activity. Use the title, any pictures and the text for clues on how to answer your questions. Try to include evidence from the text in your answers.

Activity 2

Writing – Day 2 of your diary. Something has gone terribly wrong in your science lab!

Write the next part of diary documenting what has gone wrong, why it has gone wrong and how you will fix it.

You must include adverbs and prepositions to express time and cause.

Activity 3

Maths – Complete the rounding pages (12 & 13) from your Maths Homework book.

Activity 4

Science - MAKE CONRFLOUR SLIME (learn about liquids and solids)

You will need: a large bowl, 200ml water, 200-300g cornflour, food colouring, aprons and table cover

Method:

1.Put the cornflour into a bowl.

2. Pour in the water mixing slowly

3. Add a few drops of food colouring (if you have it)

4. Put your hands in and experiment with it- squeeze, punch, slap it

Is the cornflour a liquid or solid?    How is it different to water?

What happens as you add the water?

How does the slime feel to touch? Is it a solid or liquid?

Perhaps you could write up your results and your findings and send it to me.

The science bit- Cornflour is made up of lots of tiny (<0.01mm) starch particles, these are very attracted to water, so the water gets in amongst them very quickly. The water acts as a lubricant, so when you move it slowly the particles have time to move past each other and they can flow like a liquid. However, if you apply a rapid force it causes the particles to move slightly causing the particles that are almost touching to jam together and the water that was between them moves sideways slightly into the gaps. Now instead of having lots of lubricated individual particles you have a solid structure of lumps touching each other which can't flow.

Activity 5

PE – Complete a Joe Wicks workout!

You can follow this link to watch on YouTube -  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGqjVI6J5Ew
























































 

 

Friday

Activity 1

Reading – read for 20 mins with support from an older sibling or adult. Remember to de-code and sound out any unfamiliar words.

Activity 2

Writing – Edit and improve your two diary entries. Check you have included key punctuation such as, a comma after a fronted adverbial. Use a dictionary to check any spellings you are unsure of. Read your work out loud to hear if it makes sense.

Activity 3

Maths – Use the greater than (>), less than (<) and equal to (=) symbols to complete these questions.

  1. 8273 ____ 3921
  2. 10822 ____ 83
  3. 9229 ____ 9292
  4. 703 ___ 703
  5. 2037 ____ 2038

Activity 4

Science - MAKE YOUR OWN SUNDIAL

You will need; a pencil, some plasticine/playdough or blue tack and some pebbles

What to do:

Find a sunny place to set up your sundial - somewhere that will get sunlight to it all day and start early in the day if possible.

  1. Place a big glob of plasticine on the ground and stick a pencil in it so it stands firmly and vertically.
  2. Every hour on the hour (maybe set an alarm to help), go back to your sundial and place a stone where the tip of the pencil's shadow touches the ground. You can write the number of the hour on your stone or marker if you wish.
  3. That's it - you've made a sundial! Now on following days you can simply look at the pencil's shadow and tell the time by which stone it's pointing at or between!

Send your photos for us to see!

The science bit-Every day the Sun rises in the East and sets in the West due to the spin of our planet, the Earth. Because Earth always spins at the same speed it makes it appear that the Sun travels across the sky at the same speed and is always at its highest point in the sky at midday. This regular motion means that the shadows created by the Sun always point in the same direction at the same time every day* so we can use this to tell the time! *Due to the Earth having a little bit of angular tilt they do vary a little with the seasons. Did you know that the Earth's tilt also causes the seasons in the first place?

  • Make a paper spitfire

Can you do the same amount if you only use one hand to throw and catch?

Place the empty box/container on the floor. Step back 7 steps. Can you throw the sock ball into the box/container? If you manage this easily you can move further back from the box or make your box smaller. How many times can you throw the sock ball into the box in 1 minute? Remember to only count the ones that land in the box.

Challenge 3:

Make a tower out of three or four toilet rolls. Step back 7/8 steps. Use the sock ball to try knock down the toilet roll tower! If it is too easy take 2 or 3 steps back before you throw again. The link for a video of challenge 3 is below:

Year 4's Rainbows

A fantastic and very creative rainbow from Layla! Another lovely rainbow from Muhammad and Naemia! Leena created her rainbow and wrote our school chant, a brilliant idea :) I am loving the fantastic work you are all doing Year 4! Please continue to send them in on email: year4@quarrymountprimary.org.uk

Over the Rainbow

Many children all over the country have been drawing, painting and creating their own rainbow. They are showing that although we may be apart right now we are still all here for each other. This inspired me to paint my own and hopefully cheer others up when they see it in my window! I would love if Year 4 could do the same and send me their pictures so we can all brighten each other's day. Hope you enjoy mine :)
