Blue Planet Live Lesson from BBC Teach!

 

Below is a link to the BBC Teach Live Lesson from last year exploring the ocean as an amazing ecosystem and the damage pollution is doing to it and the creatures that call it home. 

 

The presenters within the lesson refer to 3 Activity Sheets, which are available for you to download on the right hand side of the page when you follow the link. 

 

I have also attached the follow up work that we would have completed within the classroom, including an information powerpoint and activities.

Reading

 

On the stories section of Class Dojo, I have been reading the story of Malamader by Thomas Taylor. 

Below are some activities based on the story. If you haven't had the chance to go onto Dojo and listen to the story, you can scroll back to the start and sit back and listen!

Also attached below is a reading activity linked to the BBC Live Lesson of Plastic Pollution.

There are 3 different levels within the attached document, 1 star being easy, and gradually becoming more difficult. Please choose the one that you feel is the most appropriate for your child and only print those pages. There are also answers attached. 

The Star Level Rating is situated on the bottom left hand corner of each page. Answers are also included.

English

 

This week, the children will be writing a discussion text and a piece of persuasive writing.

 

This week’s English comes with a little bit of a warning.

 

When we write a persuasive piece, it is important to use topics of conversation that might be controversial or cause debate. This helps the children to become really passionate about what they’re writing, and therefore usually leads to better outcomes in their written work! When I have completed this topic before, the writing created by the children was so powerful and moving. I will add the link to the webpage so you can have a look at the work completed previously.

 

The topic the children will learn more about and complete their writing on is whether Orca Whales should be kept in captivity in places such as Seaworld in America, or be able to remain in the wild.

 

If you would prefer not to complete this English task with the children, it is absolutely fine. The 100 Word Challenge is available for the children to complete on the blog for some writing for the week.

Maths

 

This week, the children will be revising their knowledge of written methods for multiplication, as well as using this as an opportunity to practice their timestables up to 12x12!

 

By the end of year 4, the expectation is that all children know their multiplication and corresponding division facts up to 12x12.

 

There are lots of activities that you can be doing at home to practice these…

  • TT Rockstars – I will set up a Battle of the Bands this week with Year 3 taking on Year 4.
  • Sumdog Challenge will have a timestable focus
  • Supermovers have lots of songs with dance routines for each of the different timestables (see link below)
  • Matching Cards and Snap Games – create your own cards and play different memory games with them
  • Test yourself! Write your timestables out every morning
  • Chant your timestables on your daily walk
