Week beginning 30th March
This week in Maths we are moving on to comparing and ordering decimal numbers up to 2 decimal places. As a tip, try writing out the numbers on to a place value chart to help you to compare and remember to look at the chart from left to right, comparing each digit to see which is the greatest.
The following link on YouTube gives a recap of decimals and when you might use them:
When you have looked at the 'Comparing decimals year 4 explanation' and the YouTube clip, have a go at some of the worksheets and activities. If you are not feeling confident, start with the 1 star sheets until you feel more secure. For the ordering monsters activity, those of you who usually work on the mastery activities should challenge yourself to complete the 3 star sheet. For further challenge at the end of the week, ask your parents to give you some numbers with 3 decimal places and order them from smallest to greatest!
There is also a new MyMaths activity to have a go at, which will become available on Monday 30th March.
Choose one activity to do each day. (Some activities need to be done in a certain order, so read through carefully first!)
1. Short burst write
Look at the picture below. Where does the tunnel lead? What is the source of the light? Do you think the rabbit will go through? Has it been through before? How did it find out about the tunnel? Would you go through it?
2. Use the travel brochure you made last week to plan out a script for a TV advert to advertise your Roman town. Remember, you will need to use persuasive language, including rhetorical questions, repetition and wow words. Use the persuasive writing toolkit attached below to help you!
3. Use your plan to write out the script for your TV advert. Are there any words you could up-level? Check through the toolkit to make sure you have included all the features of persuasive writing. Use the example script to help.
4. Ask someone in your house to help you film your TV advert for your new Roman Town. Is there anything around the house you could use as a prop? What different locations around your house can you use? (For example, if you are talking about a bath house, you could go in the bathroom). You can watch Miss Lewis’ video for some inspiration at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpaSN71khHc&feature=youtu.be
5. Write a book review of either the book you have been reading or your favourite book. Use the template to help you. Make sure you write in full sentences and use WOW words that will persuade other people to read the book.
This week in topic you will be learning about Roman Numerals. There are two versions of the PowerPoint, pick the one that is right for you. There are activities on the PowerPoint and there is also an activity for you to complete on Purple Mash.
