# Tuesday 5th May 2020

Welcome to your home learning for Tuesday 5th  May 2020!

Here you will find your tasks for the day. If you have any worries or concerns, you know where to find me.

Fact of the day:

When you look at a bright sky and see white dots, you are looking at your blood. Those are white blood cells.

Joke of the day:

How do you know the ocearn is friendly?

It waves!

PE:

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!

Spellings:

• Various
• Weight
• Woman
• Women

Practise these spellings by writing each word out in pencil and then going over in 5 times in different colours.

English:

This week we are going to be looking at autobiographies. We have looked at the prefix ‘auto’ and know that it means ‘own.’ So we are going to write facts about our own lives. I would like you to imagine that you are no longer 8 or 9. You are now 99! You are sharing the story of your lockdown life, so it needs to be in past tense. Flick through the PowerPoint, for more information on what an autobiography is. Then look at my WAGOLL to give you some inspiration before completing your plan. Remember, in a plan, you just need to write down your key ideas. We will be writing them up tomorrow.

Maths

Today we are looking at converting days, weeks, months and years. The worksheet gets progressively harder, so see how far you can get.

The main information that you need to remember is:

• There are 24 hours in a day
• 7 days in a week
• 12 months in a year
• 52 weeks in a year
• 365 days in a year (366 in a leap year)

## Use this trick to help you remember how many days there are in each month

Before, you have a flick through the PowerPoint, have a go at the initial task. It is quite interesting to consider how often we use electricity. Once you have done it, have a look through the PowerPoint. Most of the things you will have listed from the initial task will rely on a circuit. Hopefully we will get a chance to make our own when we get back to class. Have a go at recognising if a circuit is complete or incomplete in the second task. Remember, if you can’t follow it around with your finger, from the battery back to the battery, it won’t work!
