Update: Wednesday 3rd June – oops, I seem to have jinxed the weather. Sorry guys!
We would like to take the opportunity to explore capacity whilst we are experiencing this glorious weather.
Here are a few ideas that you might want to use (including some practical activities that will be fun for the whole family):
Activity 1 – Capacity practical activity
Activity 2 – Capacity practical activity
Activity 3 – Capacity challenge
Activity 4 – Word problems
Activity 5 – Converting capacities
L1 Adding fractions (with the same denominator) with Mrs B
L2 Subtracting fractions (with the same denominator) with Mrs B
L3 Subtracting fractions from whole numbers with Mrs B (and Jack!)
L4 Finding fractions of an amount with Mrs Barratt

Yr 4 Topic Map 2019 2020 – This week we will be addressing the objectives highlighted in yellow.
L1 Paint a rainforest picture which includes foreground, background and middle ground in the style of Lowry LS-Lowry-Information-Powerpoint
L2 This activity links technology and science
Start by deciding which materials to use – the science!
How would you construct a home? What materials would you construct a home with ? Taking account of the weather conditions in the rainforest, test and decide on which would be the best materials for a roof/walls etc for a tropical home.
This resource provides a practical context to explore the uses of everyday materials, based on their properties. Children are introduced to a problem of building a flood- proof home, which is faced by families in local communities in Bangladesh, looking at solutions that have been developed to solve this problem. This leads into an investigation in which children devise different types of enquiries to find out if a local material, straw, is the best material to use or if a different material would be better.
L3 Once you have tested the materials and decided upon the best material to use for this purpose, design, produce and evaluate your product.
An alternative option is to design, produce and evaluate a suitable filtration system to ensure tribes in the rainforest have clean water to drink.
Record what you have done in a way that suits you but below are some examples of booklets you could choose to print and use or to follow to create your own booklet.
Science at home resources:

Fold a piece of paper so that you have six sections. Create a poster describing the key features of each of these forms of poetry and use the final section to do the same for haiku poems.
L5 Continuing with the desert island theme, write poems using two different forms of poetry (from the list given above). Decide which form(s) of poetry you prefer and explain why. Are there any forms of poetry you really don’t like? Why do you think that is?
