Week 14

Good morning Year 4! 


This week (week beginning Monday 22nd June 2020) we are going to be learning about 2-D shapes in Maths. Your English will be writing a set of instructions. This week is slightly out of kilter with the usual plan so make sure you keep all of your brilliant character and setting descriptions you've been working on over the last couple of weeks as these will become really useful next week when you write up your own adventure story! 


On Monday and Tuesday afternoons we will continue with our new topic 'Where on Earth am I? - Mapping the World'. Thursday marks the end of our Sikhism topic so there is an end of unit quiz to test how much you've learned! There is also a Spanish lesson teaching the names of shapes in Spanish. On Friday, there is a fun coding activity available where you will be writing and debugging code to create different characters and making them have a dance party to some popular songs.


It is National School Sports Week this week so to mark this, there are some extra sport activities to complete added below the timetable. Enjoy!


As always, if you have any questions at all, please feel free to email me on and I'll be more than happy to help in any way needed! Please also send any updates on what you've been up to as I love to see the wonderful activities you've all been doing. If you need any tasks simplifying or any extensions on top of the activities set, please let me know and I can send you on any relevant help.


I hope you all have a wonderful week and I'll be here next week to add some new activities!

L.O: I can compare and classify 2-D shapes.

L.O: I can retrieve facts from an instructional text.

L.O: I can identify the world's continents and oceans.

1) Look at the blank world map and (without cheating) try to label as many things on it as you can using your existing knowledge. Don’t worry if you can’t label many. We will be learning about some of the different parts of the word in this topic so you should be able to add more things to your map as we go along.

2) Research the following words: continent, country and ocean. 3) What is the difference between a continent and a country? Can you name all 7 continents and find out some of their countries?

4) Have a look at the “Identifying World Continents and Oceans” slides. Use this to add all of the continents and oceans (and some key countries if you can) to the map.
