Reading and English
1.Reading: Find the ‘Pirate Poems’ book on Oxford Owl. (www.oxfordowl.co.uk Select ‘My class login’. Put emmanuel in the first box and Y4JC in the second.)
Then click on ‘My bookshelf’ and select age 7-9.
Choose at least three of the poems to read. Decide which is your favourite and why, and let me know on Class Dojos.
2. Writing: Turn each month into a rhyming couplet. The first line should tell us the months and what they bring. The second line gives us more detail about the month and the event.
Put the easiest word to rhyme at the end of the line.
e.g. January brings dark nights
Hats and scarves and woolly tights.
January brings dark nights
Icy paths and snowball fights.
3. Practise reading your poem aloud. You might find you need to play around with your words and ideas a bit to make it sound right – this is an important part of the writing process!
Decide which words need volume and emphasis. Perform to a family member and/or record yourself reading and upload it to Class Dojos.
We are going to look at some reasoning problems where you use your mathematical knowledge to solve tricky, real life problems. Have a go at the 3 sheets.
