Maths

Click on the link below which will take you to White Rose lessons for Summer Term Lesson 1. These are the maths plans we follow in school so you will recognise the different methods and diagrams they use.

 

 

 

Watch the video slides and pause and rewind if you need to.

Then answer the questions from the activity sheet in your workbook.

The answers are there for you to check too!

 

(Before the Easter break you did complete some work on decimals however this will be a recap of what you've remembered and get you settled back into work again!

This is what your screen should look like when you get to the website.

You can either click on the links for the activity sheets and answers, or I’ve put them below, too.

(You will need to go to the website for the video, though)

Literacy

 

Click on the link below and watch the video 'Mega City'

This TV ad tells the story of busker Jack and his furry companion, Harry. We travel with the struggling pair as they try desperately to bring joy and happiness to their cold, dark world. Littered with looming skyscrapers and devoid of nature, the pair struggle to break through to the busybodies caught up in the rush of city life.

Jack desires one thing more than anything in life – to escape to the countryside. Using this desire to push himself forwards, he busks through the harsh days and weary nights; slowly but surely, day after day, saving up the money he needs to buy a motorbike, to get his canine companion out of the city.

For today's literacy task, I would like you to create a setting description about the busy, bustling city that Jack currently lives and busks in. Think about the people, the atmosphere, the sounds, sights and smells. When I read your description, I would like to get a sense of the mood and atmosphere through the description you use.

Remember to use:

Adjectives,

Interesting verbs,

Adverbs,

Similes,

Varied openers.

 

You can either complete your piece of writing on paper if you'd prefer or on a word document and attach it to an email.

Please email your work to our class email address: Year4@overseal.derbyshire.sch.uk

Topic

 

Our topic in Geography we started was 'Mega cities' and we began to look at the differences between a regular city and a mega city and what made a mega city appealing.

 

For your topic work this week, I would like you to complete some research about a mega city of your choice. I will add a list below of the possible mega cities you could find information about.

 

Once you have decided, you can look online or watch videos about the place you have chosen. You can then present your research in any for you'd like; this could be a poster, power point presentation, video or leaflet. 

The facts you must include in your presentation are:

Where in the world is this mega city?

What is the latest recorded population of this megacity?

Does this mega city have any special places/ buildings/ famous architecture? 

Here are the top 10 mega cities. You may find another mega city you would like to do your research on, as long as it is a mega city (10million + population)

Here are some website links I have found that you might want to look at to do your research. You could also watch videos on Youtube or BBC Bitesize for more information.
