Primary School

Learning, achieving, working together

Friday 29th May

Good morning year 4


I hope you enjoy the learning tasks for today, I have done something a little bit different in maths and there is an interesting music activity.  Maybe you could create your own instrument and record a tune?



The final part of this weeks learning on explanation text is to look at the element of specialist vocabulary.  On Tuesday we looked at the 'Hot Air Balloon' text - some specialist vocabulary included burner, nylon poles.  For today's task I would like you to pick one of the texts below and highlight any specialist vocabulary and then draw a diagram and label it to explain how it works.  



For today's task I have set you something a little bit different.  It's about planning a budget.  There is a power point and an activity sheet and an interactive game.  Think about an activity you would like to do when we are out of lockdown - football match, trip to the seaside, etc.   Research the cost of tickets, travel, food and plan your budget for the event.  

Other learning


A little bit of music to start - Rhythm Reading


The video below is going to teach you how to read rhythms. It uses the sounds:

  • Ta (sounds like car)
    Ti-Ti (sounds like tea-tea)

The video helps you keep a track of where you are too:

  • To keep you in time, follow the sounds as they turn red.
    Each rhythm pattern is played four times before moving onto the next.

Have a go at saying these rhythms first, then try tapping them on a table, or clapping them at the same time. 

Introduction to Rhythm Reading: Stage One

And then have a look at do you think the instrument makes the sound?  Did you like it?  Which one did you like best?  What about anyone else in your house?

The final link is to an engineering website where you can play interactive games.  I hope you enjoy the learning.  Have a lovely weekend and I'll be in touch next week.


Stay safe.  Mrs Hobbs
