Maths

Answers for Friday 22nd

 

Today's first job is to go back to the work you completed on Friday and use the answers below to mark. Please complete any corrections for the ones you have got wrong.

 

Main Lesson

 

Today, we are ending our Multiplication and Division unit of learning in maths. Just like we normally do after every unit, we would like you to carry out the end of unit test. 

This must be done independently as we want to see what you have learnt and what we may still need to go over in our lesson recaps.

Once you have completed the mini tests, please ask your parents to mark them with the answers below and send us your two scores to the year 4 email address.

Literacy

 

For literacy today, we are going to start looking at our new text 'The sound collector by Roger McGough'

 

First, write the long date Monday 25th January 2021 and the title Text Analysis. Use your ruler to underline both.

 

Next, have a look at the criteria below and complete your activating prior knowledge task.

 

 

 

 

Next, read through the text.
After, use the the analysis sheet (below) to make notes of unknown words and find their meanings. How can you then use your background knowledge to help you understand the text more? Think about how we have done this before.

History

 

 

 

 

Learning Objective -

To understand the characteristic features of societies, including beliefs and lives of people of the past.

To use evidence from a range of sources to find out about a past event or aspect of the time period studied.

 

Success Criteria -

  • With support, I can select simple information from a range of sources.
  • I can select simple information from a range of sources.
  • I can independently select more detailed evidence from a range of sources.
  • I have considered whether I can trust a source and have used the range of sources to support or disagree with ideas.

 

Activating Prior Knowledge

What was life like in Iron Age Britain? Write Three bullet points below.

 

 

This term we are looking at the big question, ‘What did the Romans bring to Britain?’

To answer this we are going to look at primary and secondary sources. You will be thinking like a historian. Historians do not dig up evidence and automatically know what it means, you have to look at the evidence and think about what it shows you.

 

Today we are looking at the education and language that the Romans brought to Britain when they arrived. Watch the clips below to introduce the topic.

 

Primary Source Task

Have a look at the primary sources below and answer the following four questions about each picture. Set this out as we have done in previous history lessons.

 

What do the sources tell you?

What don’t they tell you?

What questions do you have about the source?

How useful is this source in telling us about how education and language changed under the Romans?

    

Secondary Source Task

Next you are going to look at secondary sources. Read the information below. Answer the same questions as before.

What do the sources tell you?

What don’t they tell you?

What questions do you have about the source?

How useful is this source in telling us about how education and language changed under the Romans?
