Monday 6th April

Holy Week  

 

 

Good morning Year Four. I hope that you're all well and have had a good weekend. This week is a very special week- it is Holy Week! For the next three days you will be asked to complete work on the different events that took place during this special week.

The Last Supper

 

Watch this clip from my favourite film 'The Miracle Maker' . It shows Jesus celebrating the Passover meal with his friends. The Passover is a special meal that Jewish people share to remember how Moses saved the Jewish people from slavery. However, Jesus turned this special meal into his 'Last Supper'. Watch carefully and then in your Home learning book, answer the questions below. Write today's date and your title is 'The Last Supper'

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIrN9RJhbi0 

 

1. Who comes into the room AFTER  the others?

2. What question does the little girl ask?

3. What does Jesus do with the bread?

4. What does Jesus say about the bread which confuses his friends?

5. Why is the blood 'poured out form many' according to Jesus?

6. Who pulls out the sword during the meal?

7. How many times does Jesus say Simon Peter will deny him?

8. What are the first words Jesus says to Judas?

9. How do you think Jesus is feeling during the meal and why?

10. Where does Jesus go to after the meal? (not mentioned in the clip.)

Your english task today is to write a set of instructions for whatever you made last week using the key ingredient 'chocolate'. Please write the instructions in your home learning book with the title 'Instructions to make __________'. 
Remember to include bossy verbs, capital letters and full stops, number your instructions, short clear sentences and a drawing of what you created.

IPC 

Cadbury still needs our help, therefore I would like you to create and design a brand new chocolate bar! It can be whatever shape, colour, size you like. It can include whatever ingredients you like and I want you to think of a brand new name for your chocolate bar.

Please colour your new chocolate bar in and label what is inside the chocolate bar. For example: popping candy, white and dark chocolate, hazelnuts etc...

You can draw this on a piece of paper and stick it into your home learning book, or you can do this on purple mash on '2paint'. The choice is yours!

You can use bubble writing or other ways to get creative with your logo. Have a look online at what other chocolate bars look like to give you some ideas. 

Best of luck and if you need any help or would like to just talk, send me an email on purple mash! (2email)

SCIENCE 
This afternoon I would like you to conduct an experiment using ice cubes. If you can't do it today, don't worry you can do it tomorrow. Your challenge is this - I would like you to get 3 different ice cubes and your task is to see which one you can keep insulated the longest. This means, which ice cube will stay the coldest and not melt for the longest time. You will need to wrap each ice cube in a different material, thinking about ways you can keep it cold. (This will be your insulator) Once they are all wrapped, in your home learning book, I would like you to tell me the material that you used and what you noticed happen after 2 minutes and then 5 minutes and then 8 minutes. Record your observations in full sentences. Please draw a picture of your 3 ice cubes at the start of the investigation and then after the 8 minutes. Which was the best insulator? What did you do to keep the ice cube cold? Which insulator didn't work and why? Remember to sue your scientific vocabulary and questioning. I will be looking forward to reading your scientific conclusions! 

 

Have a great day

The Firebird!

We have had a wonderful week in Year 4.  The Firebird is a ballet and orchestral concert work by the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky. We have used 'The Firebird' as a theme to our learning. In English lessons, We have learnt about the Russian traditional fairy tale linked to the music.  In Science, we have conducted an experiment where we have investigated how effective feathers are as insulation. In Art, we have made Firebird masks to be worn when performing our own ballet composition. We have also produced paintings of the Firebird. We learnt how to use blending techniques to create a dramatic Firebird.  In Dance, we made and performed our own ballet dance to the music. What an exciting week! 

                                                                   MARVELLOUS MATHS!

 

We have started our Fractions unit this week with Mrs Carlin. We started off recapping previous learning from Year 3. We then learnt about decimal equivalents of fractions using place value grids to help us. First we looked at converting tenths into decimals then some of us moved on to converting hundredths into decimals! yes
