LO: To divide 2-digit numbers with remainders

In math today, we are going to be dividing 2-digit numbers with remainders! 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 3 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!

Remember to place close attention, so you can answer the questions at the end. Please remember I can see if you have read the chapter - some of you are answering the questions without reading!


LO: To edit our ideas

Have another look at the bare bones below – there are two versions, the one I showed you yesterday, and a new one where I have added to my ideas like you did yesterday!


Have a look at your work from yesterday where you wrote your own bare bones

I want you to write 2 sentences for each section of your bare bones. For example, if I had the ‘something goes wrong’ to be that Mol fell off the stage, I would make my first two sentences, ‘Just as she was getting ready, Mol lost her balance. No, this couldn’t be happening!’

You should end up with a total of 8 sentences, 2 per every section.


You will be writing the story on Monday - if you make a choice to not add extra detail here, it will make your job harder on Monday!

Times tables

This week, we are focusing on our 8 times tables! Please have a go at the attached sheet making multiplication wheels. Try and use them to recite your 8 times tables!


LO: To do an experiment based on reinforced concrete

Today we will be continuing to explore British inventions with the invention of reinforced concrete. To start, please read through the following slides and watch the video below.

Next we are going to be doing an experiment! Your adults should have been sent a link via marvellous me to a youtube video – please go and watch that!  


If you have not received the link, please email me at year4@leigh.covmat.org and I will give the link to you. Please ensure you do not share this link.
