Year 4 Home Learning - Week 3

Hello and welcome back to week 3 of summer 2 home learning.  I have seen some fantastic work from last week.  I am really proud of all you are doing with your learning at home.  You should also feel proud of yourself, as it is very different to normal.  Keep working hard and trying your best.  Remember to continue reading The Ickabog.  This coming Saturday is Father's Day.  Find some time to make dad or grandad a card to show him how much you love him.  You could also find some jobs to do helping around the house, making breakfast in bed, tidying your room, doing some gardening.

Science: Can you separate salt and pepper? Your challenge this week is to separate the 2 materials. How can you do this? what might you need? Before you read the instructions on the link below, please make your own predictions on how you may separate salt and pepper. Write down your predictions then complete the experiment. After you have completed the experiment, write up the method and your results, draw a labelled diagram of your experiment. If you want, film the experiment and send to Mr T.


Topic: Flags of Europe. This summer was to be the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics, however, due to Covid19 they are not happening until next year. I would like you to start thinking about the countries around the world that would be competing in the games. First of all, let us look at European countries that would have been competing. Can you make a poster, Word document or PowerPoint showing some of the European countries ( Minimum 5) that were due to go to the Tokyo games. I would like you to record the country name, find the flag for each country and tell me an interesting fact about the country.


French: Bonjour! This week I would also like you to think about learning some French words. As part of your learning this term, you are to learn the names of different subjects you learn at school. The link below goes through a number of different school subjects in English and French. It also puts the subject name into a sentence for you to have a go at as well. Listen, have a go at saying the word and sentence in French, then say them to your parents. Au Revoir.


RE. What Jesus did to save people? Over the last few weeks you may have seen some very troubling behaviour in the news or your parents may have talked to you about it. Do you think this behaviour is the right behaviour? Why are people behaving in such a way? Think about and talk to your parents about what is right and what is wrong. In the Bible we hear of stories Jesus told his disciples and people who came to listen to his stories about what is right and what is wrong. I would like you to also read the Bible quotes below, think about what they are saying and produce a poster showing how we can change the wrong things in our world today.

There is neither Jew or Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male or female: For we are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:28).
God hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth. (Acts 17:26)
