# Tuesday 31st March 2020

## Welcome to your home learning for 31st March 2020!

Here you will find your tasks for the day. If you have any worries or concerns, you know where to find me. I have uploaded both Microsoft word and PDF versions of most documents.

Fact of the day:

Kangaroos can’t walk backwards!

Joke of the day:

What do you call a sleeping dinosaur?

A dino-snore!

PE:

David Walliams is luckily sharing his stories online at the moment. Follow this link to listen to his story for today:

English:

This week, we will be finishing our work around The Explorer.  By the end of the week, we will be writing our own adventure stories! However, before we move onto that, we will be analysing Katherine Rundell's use of powerful vocabulary to help us.

Remember:

Adjectives - a word that describes a noun

Adverb - describes a verb or adjective. They tell us how, where, when, how much, how often etc.

Spellings:

While we are learning from home, I will be giving you a few spellings to practise each day in a fun way.

• Accident
• Accidentally
• Actual
• Actually
• Appear

Please can your practise these using the pyramid technique. First write down the first letter, then write the first and second letters etc.

Maths:

Our work today recaps our understanding around tenths and hundredths.

If you are stuck, remember:

• Equivalent fractions- whatever you do to the numerator, you must do to the denominator
• Hundredths are where a whole is split into a hundred equal pieces
• Tenths are where a whole is split in ten equal piece

If you fly through this work, have a go at the challenge!

## Relating Decimals to Fractions- Tenths and Hundredths 4th Grade

RE:

We are conintuing to think about Lent and self-discipline. You have an opportunity to think about what you can do/are doing to alcknowldge this relgious time.

Please make sure you are reading for 25 minutes. If you can, write down what you think about it in your reading log. I finished a really dramatic book last night! It was a suspense book, which means it was hard to work out what would happen by the end of the book.

Challenge:

This is optional, however I thought it looked fun! It will work best with lego, but I’m sure you could use your amazing imaginations to find something else if you don’t have any around.

Imagine you are hired by an amusement park to create a new and exciting roller coaster. What would it look like?

I’d love to see some finished roller coasters!
