Brancaster Class ~ The Week Ahead! 21/09/20
Good morning and welcome to a brand new week.
This week in Brancaster Class, we will be learning:
In maths this week we will be working on lessons 4,5,6 and 7 in year 4 unit 1. Here is a link to the textbook to help you with these lessons – https://preview.pearsonactivelearn.com/PowerMathsYear4
In our lessons this week we will continue to explore numbers up to and beyond 1000. Here are some links to lessons to help your understanding.
Here’s a great page on the Oxford Owl website, this will parents and carers support their children at home.
This week we will be exploring the wonderful world of the ‘prefix’. We will recap some spelling patterns from year 3 and then explore the ‘in’ prefix. Here are our spelling words for this week.
Take a look at these video lessons to help you to understand what a prefix is and their meanings.
In English this week we will be writing our own recount texts. We will be using a boxing up grid to plan our recount. Use this grid to help you with your plan –
This week we continue to explore forces. We will be learning about friction and how this can effect the speed of a moving object. We will be setting up an investigation to see how different surfaces effect the speed of a toy car.
Learn about friction here –
This week we will be reminding ourselves of the 4 different countries that make up the United Kingdom. Watch this short video lesson to remind you – https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/geography-ks1–ks2-the-united-kingdom/zhtgrj6
We will then be learning about the counties in the U.K – we will be asking, what is a county? and which county do we live in?
Listen to this fab song to learn the different names of the counties – how many can you remember?
