Year 4

 

The Year 4 staff contact will now be Mrs Owen.  If you have any questions regarding the home learning tasks, please email on joanna.owen@intake.sheffield.sch.uk

 


Week Beginning: 6th July 2020

Hi Y4! Hope you have all had a lovely weekend and ready for your new weekly tasks. As of this week my role has had to change and I will be returning to school for the last two weeks of term. I will still be marking the home learning but please bear in mind I will also have a teaching commitment too. To make the process more manageable, marking will now all be done on Thurs and Fri when most children have had a chance to complete the tasks and not throughout the week as it has been.

 

If you have any worries or concerns, you can email as before and I will get back to you as soon as I can. joanna.owen@intake.sheffield.sch.uk

Alternatively you can contact Mrs Frank cfrank@intake.sheffield.sch.uk

Remember to keep saving any coloured bottle tops as we will be using them next week.  Don’t worry though if you don’t use many bottles as there will be another option.

Have a great week!

Mrs Owen

Task 3

Complete your Times Table Rockstars challenge https://ttrockstars.com/.

Complete at least 15 studio games and try and improve your speed. 

 

Task 4

Plastic pollution is contaminating our world and has even reached the lowest point on our planet 11,000 metres below sea level. When you go to https://www.twinkl.co.uk/share  (you do not need an account) and type QD3769, there is a powerpoint with information about this huge global problem.

 

Your task is to look at the plastic waste that you have in your household this week and identify which plastics are single use and can’t be recycled and which can. With all the single use plastic you have I would like you to try and create an animal that lives in the sea. Some examples of single use plastics are some food containers and bottles, straws, crisp packets, biscuit/cake/chocolate/sweet wrappers, bread/cereal/food/carrier bags, plastic delivery packaging, baby food pouches, empty wipe packets etc.

 Here are a few examples of what you could do. Have fun!


Task 5
