Please follow one of the links on the Year 4 home page to either Cosmic Kids, GoNoodle, PE with Joe Wickes or Smiling Minds. The choice is up to you this week! Make sure you stay fit and healthy.
Please make sure you are dedicating about 25 minutes per day to reading. Remember you can quiz at home too!
Have a go at this cross word to practise your Year 3/4 spellings. If you really enjoy it, there are a few to try!
Have a listen to this story. It is one of my favourites. I think it helps the reader think about and care for the natural world. Quiz when you have finished!
This week we are going to be working through a workbook about determiners. Today, have a go at page 3. Possessive determiners are the same as possessive pronouns. So you are looking for words like his, hers, theirs, mine, yours.
Today we are returning to our learning on analogue and 12 hour clocks!
We are finishing off our RE learning this year with a little bit of work on Islam. I am not sure if you remember, but in the Autumn term, we learnt about the Torah. Today, we are learning about another religious book - the Quran.
The Quran is Muslims’ most holy book. Muslims believe it contains the actual words of Allah spoken to Muhammad by the angel Jibril (as Christians we would say Gabriel). The words have remained unchanged since the time of Muhammad. It is written in Arabic. It tells Muslims how they should worship Allah and how they should treat each other.
How is the bible similar to the Qur’an?
Muslims treat the book with great respect. It is always placed higher than any other book. It is wrapped in a special cover to keep it clean. Before Muslims read it, they take off their shoes and wash their hands. It must be put in a prayer stand.
THINK about the following questions:
What did you notice in the video clip?
Why is the Quran treated so carefully?
What do you think about the way Muslims treat their most holy book?
Use the calligraphy worksheet below to write out one or more of the commandments in the picture. The worksheet says you need two pencils and an elastic band, but I'm sure you could just copy the letters.
Then decorate your piece of paper by creating a border (see worksheet on Islamic art)
