Maths (send in)

LO: To divide 2-digit numbers

In math today, we are going to be dividing 2-digit numbers! Try and remember what dividing means - it means putting a big number into groups or sharing. For example, for 88 ÷ 8, you would put 88 into 8 groups, and count how many were in each group, receiving the answer of 11. 

Have a look at the in-focus question. How do you think you could work it out? As you would usually do this in your pairs, see if you can talk to an adult or an older sibling about your thoughts. Use the empty box to explain your thoughts.

Next, have a look at the guided practice. Can you work out how those answers were gained? Have a go at working them out yourselves to see if your method is correct.

Finally, have a go at the worksheet provided - it is 2 sheets, the minimum expectation is one sheet, but just like in class, try and have a go at the second one too!


LO: To answer questions on the text

This week, we are going to be reading the book ‘The curse of castle Drago.’

Today, you are going to read chapter 1 and then complete the online quiz. I will be able to see if you have done this activity so there is no need to send me your quiz results!

You each have your own log in which I will be sending to your adults to give to you. I will send it via marvellous me – if it doesn’t come through please email me at year4@leigh.covmat.org and I will send it to you there!

I hope you enjoy this book as well as you did Dr Salamander!

English (send in)

LO: To recite

Below I have included a pdf of the story ‘The Bogeymen and the Trolls next door’. Have another read of it.

Today you are going to be reciting – do you know what reciting means? It means to say something from your memory. Every day we recite things, for example, when I say your names, I am reciting them from memory. Today, you’re challenge is to recite 2 stanzas of the narrative verse. You can choose whichever 2 stanzas you’d like to as long as they are next to each other within the text. Send me a video of you reciting your 2 stanzas of the poem.

History (send in)

LO: To understand how British influence grew

Today we are going to be looking at how British influence grew across the world. This does cover the topic of slavery, which may need further explaining to the children. Have a read through the slides! To allow trading, Queen Elizabeth the first had to write a letter giving permission – this became known as a royal charter. Today’s task is to write your own charter from Queen Elizabeth. I have written some top tips below and a charter sheet for you to write on to make it look official!


Last week I got some fabulous pictures of some of you using things around the house to create percussion and we had a lot of fun in the classroom doing it too. We’re going to further build on that in today’s lesson!
