Wednesday 27th

Wednesday 27th January 

Good morning Sycamore class. 

Here are the activities I would like you to complete today.

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

Today we are going to start by recapping subordinate clauses. Click on the powerpoint in the resources section if you need to refresh your memory, or go straight to the activity sheet if you are feeling confident! You will be adding a main clause to each subordinate clause, so whatever you write must be a full sentence and make sense by itself. You only need to complete the first sheet, but if you need some extra challenge, look at sheets 2 or 3 instead.


After your SPaG starter, we are going to carry on with our Man on the Moon Unit. Today your job is to describe 2 different settings and characters. We will start by recapping what we have done so far and then we will think about words that we could use to describe the settings and characters in the clip. Keep these words to use in later lessons!


Here is the link to your lesson:



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. Open up the ‘Roman Numerals Presentation’ from the resource section below. Work your way through it to remind yourself about larger Roman numerals.
  4. Using your Knowledge from yesterday, open up your Roman numerals booklet (We used it on Monday) and complete pages 5, 6 and 7.


3) Spellings

It’s test day! Mrs Brammer will test you on your spellings during the morning Zoom lesson. Listen carefully to the group you are in so you know which words you need to write down. After the lesson, you can ask an adult to mark them and tell us your scores during the afternoon Zoom lesson. Below, you will find the new rule for your new spellings.


4) Topic


Open up the ‘Lichtenstein presentation’ from the resource section below and read all about him. After that, open up the ‘Lichtenstein templates’ activity. Use Lichtenstein’s technique of dots and bright colours to either colour on or more of the templates, or, create your own on plain paper. Felt tips work really well for this, as does poster paint but you could also get a good result from using pencil crayons. If you felt really creative, you could try making a picture using a computer ‘paint’ program.


5) PE and Mindfulness  

Get out of the house! It might be wet and wild but your body is waterproof! You could do something like play in the garden if you have one, or if you don’t have one, go for a walk. If you can’t get out of the house, then think about doing some stretches, running on the spot, running up and down the stairs, star jumps, press ups, squats – anything that gets your heart rate going.
