Monday 11th

Good Morning Sycamore class!

Here are the activities I would like you to complete today – Monday 11th January.


You can choose what order you do the activities in, but we suggest trying to do the English and Maths in the morning. You can print the work if you want to or you can read from the screen and answer on paper. Please save anything you do to bring into school once we are back so we can have a look at it. You can also ask your grown-ups to e-mail photos of your work to me each day if you want.


1) English

I love pizza! Over the next week or 2, our English work is going to be all about instructions... any guesses what the final instructions might be about?! We are going to be following some Oak Academy lessons, to help make sure everything is explained to you, and a lovely teacher called Ms Bourke will help you with your learning today. All you will need is a pencil and some paper.

For today’s lesson, click on the link entitled Monster Pizza Instructions 1. It is all about some of the features of instructions. When Ms Bourke talks about sequencing words, these are the same as adverbs of time which you have talked about in school (first, next, then, finally).


If you would like to go that extra mile, why not have a go at following the jam sandwich instructions to make your lunch today? Alternatively, you could write your own instructions about how to make another meal such as what you had for breakfast today.


2) Maths

  1. Log on to TT Rock Stars and spend 5-10 minutes on your tables. They are set for all tables up to 12x12 as you should know these off by heart by the end of Y4.
  2. Open up the ‘Times tables’ resource below and answer the questions. Ask an adult to mark them and I will collect the answers this afternoon.
  3. Click the link to access today’s maths lesson from Oak Academy. Adding using the column method ( Remember to pause the video when the teacher tells you to so that you can work out the answers. Record all your work on paper with the date at the top so that I can see it when you return to school.


3) Spelling

Have a go at practising your spellings and your handwriting at the same time. Your handwriting sheets are below. 


4) Topic Today you will be looking at dinosaur eating patterns, specifically if they are carnivores, omnivores or herbivores. Open up the ‘Dinosaur Eating Habits’ presentation in the resource section below and read the information. After that, Open up the ‘Dinosaur Eating Habits’ activity. For this activity you will have to cut and stick the dinosaurs into the correct place on the Venn diagram. Alternatively, you could look at the screen and draw your own Venn diagram.


5) PE - PE with Joe is back! He is live in the morning but you can google PE with Joe and catch up with any of his workouts. Pick one and get active! Alternatively, you can choose a physical activity of your choice to do at home. I’d love to see photos of you working out!
