RIDGEWAY Primary School

Year 4-Remote Learning Page

 

This is the page that we will be using for any Remote Learning this year. This could be in the form whole class/school closure due to a Covid-19 outbreak, or for individuals who have to isolate when waiting for a test or following a positive test in the household.

More information will be sent home from school in the next few weeks about expectation for Remote Learning this year, along with login codes for various platforms and an exercise book.

Take care and stay safe,

Hello there!  Well if you're reading this then I guess you're not able to come to school today which is a real shame.  I know a couple of you are definitely not in, so I hope you have a good day's remote learning and a fabulously relaxing Easter break.  We will all hopefully be back together after the hols and fingers crossed we get to spend the whole summer term together.  Happy Easter everyone!

Today's tasks are on Seesaw but there's a brief description below and all the necessary resources.

Reading:  Let's find out what Easter is all about - that rhymes you know ;-)  Read the text carefully and then when you're ready answer as many of the questions as you can.  Answers will be posted around 3pm.

English:  Put what you've read in the reading task to good use by creating your own acrostic poem.  Use the template provided or create your own.

Maths:  There's little lost lambs out there waiting to be found.  Use your coordinates skills to rush to their aid - don't let your opponent win!

ART / DT:  Easter is a time for giving and receiving cards.  Follow the step-by-step guide or watch the video on how to make a fun Easter card for someone special.

Friday 26th March

Well it's Friday everybody!!!!!! Let me here you say YEAH!!! 

Hopefully the end is now in sight and we can all get back together in class real soon.  Hang in there folks!  There were some great socks skills on show yesterday with the P.E. challenges, although there was some pretty dodgy balancing going on too - LOL! 

Anyway, we have another Zoom meeting today at 9.45am, so see you there and remember to have a think about what RESPECT means to you as we can share our thoughts and feelings during the meeting.   

Ok, today's menu looks like this: (all tasks are on Seesaw and the resources are available below).

Reading:  Click on the link https://storylineonline.net/ then choose a book and sit back and enjoy.

Spelling:  Use the sheets or the game on EdShed to practise your spellings.  When you're ready get someone at home to test you on them - good luck!

Maths:  Have a go at answering as many questions as you can on this week's Weekly Skills sheet.

PSHE:   Let's talk about RESPECT.  Yeah come on!  What does 'respect' mean to you? We are going to have a longer Zoom session this morning so that everyone can share what respect means to them - so please come prepared.  There's also a game to play (see below) or an activity to complete on Seesaw. 

I hope you all have a good weekend and look forward to seeing you next week.

G'day folks!   

It was great to see so many of you at the Zoom meeting yesterday.  I hope we helped Luke feel very special on his birthday and thanks for all the birthday banners, cakes and singing folks - wonderful stuff!  Don't forget to login again this morning at 9.45am to say hi and hopefully show off some new moves for our motto B.E.S.T - Believe, Endeavor, Succeed, Together! 

Just one more thing - we will be having a longer zoom meeting on Friday, so that we can do some PSHE.  I'd like you to think about RESPECT (it's one of our school values) - what is it and what does it mean to you?  Have a think in advance of the meeting on Friday as I'd really like you to share your thoughts and ideas please.

Ok - today's tasks look like this: (all the tasks are on Seesaw and the resources are available below).

Reading:  Read the next chapter in our Tudor story 'The Queen's Token'.  Then use your Bookflix skills to make a prediction and to 'Retell in 5' the five most important parts of the chapter.

English:  Using the chapter we have just read from 'The Queen's Token' answer the questions provided in as much detail as you can and use the thought bubble to write down what Hal would be thinking at the end of the chapter - use the text to help you.

Maths:   It's time for a bit of fun and to practise what we have learnt about adding fractions together.  Choose one, two or all three of the online maths games to play and then when you're ready have a go at the questions provided on the sheet.

P.E:   Get your socks at the ready! Yes that's right P.E. today is all about using your socks to help you keep fit.  There's five sock challenges to have a go at and you can try and master one challenge or as many as you can handle.  Take a video of you attempting each challenge and let me know which one is your favourite.

Hi everyone,

Well done for all your fab efforts yesterday.  Lots of great Tudor fashion designs on show and some great maths too.  

Today is Luke's birthday!!!! Yay - many happy returns Luke.  Sadly Luke missed celebrating his birthday with everybody last year as well as this because of COVID, so we all really do hope you have a great day and get spoilt rotten.

I hope that you have all had details sent to parents about our Zoom meeting this morning at 9.45am.  It will be great to get together and the good news is that we can have a Zoom meeting EVERY MORNING at 9.45 until we all get back to school.  Any problems, please contact school and they will sort you out. 

I'd just like to remind you that there's an ONLINE BOOKFAIR to take advantage of this week (Mon - Fri).  Details are in the school newsletter.  All you need to do is order
your books at booksforbugs.co.uk   The books will be delivered to school we will then send them home for you to enjoy.  Your BONUS!

For every five books brought by parents / careers / grandparent costing £2.50 during this week, the school will be able to choose any £2.50 book for free. 

My last reminder is to have a think about suitable actions we can all do for our school motto B.E.S.T  - Believe, Endeavour, Succeed, Together.  We can all show of any ideas during our Zoom meetings each morning.  I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Right onto today, here's what we're doing: (all the tasks are on Seesaw but a brief outline and resources are provided below).

Zoom meeting:  9.45am see you there!

Reading: Read our Bookflix text on being ill in Tudor times and then make two predictions on what you have read.  Then jot down two things the text has made you wonder about.  Then finish off by drawing a Snapshot of the images the text creates in your head as you read it.

Well hello guys! This is a surprise isn't it? I don't know about you but this all feels a bit mad now, but hey!   let's all just get on with our remote learning once again and we'll wait to hear when we can all get back to school.  Today is a perfect opportunity to crack on with our homework tasks that we obviously didn't do over the weekend because we were sooooooooooo busy doing other stuff right! Cough, cough ;-)  Well anyway, today I would like you to have a go at the following:

Maths:  TT Rockstars  and a little bit of Hit the Button to practice our division https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button 

Reading: Read Theory - this is an ideal time to get all four read theories done in one go, come on you can do it!

English:  Spellings - you've got the spelling sheets on Seesaw to crack on with and the game on EdShed to help you practise those spellings ready for Friday.

Topic:  We've been drawing Queen Elizabeth I's portrait in class but today we are going to have a go at drawing King Henry VIII. There are two step-by-step videos to choose from, so pick one and get drawing the big man.  Have fun!

Hello Team Odyssey!

Welcome back and I really hope you all had a lovely half term break.  Today is a really good day as we have our whole class Zoom meeting at 2pm when we can all get together and catch up on how we've all been getting on.  Mr Wilson has hopefully sent you all the details, so I look forward to seeing you all later.

This half term we move on from the Stone Age and onto our new topic entitled 'Off with their heads!' and is all about the Tudor period in history.  It should be really interesting and a bit bloody too as there was plenty of fighting and killing going on as the Tudors battled for who was going to be King or Queen.

I have put all your lessons for today on Seesaw so pop on over and get cracking!  Any documents etc that you need are also available below. 

Maths answers will be posted here at 3pm. 

Have a good day and see you at 2pm.  Cheers, Mr T

Well I missed the weather forecast on Monday night, so it was a big surprise to see all that snow yesterday.  I hope you all had fun out there and maybe today if it's still around.

It was very sad news that Captain Sir Tom Moore passed away yesterday.  He would have loved all your kind cards & messages and that all our thoughts were with him. 

He was a truly wonderful and inspirational man.

 

 

Today is a new day and all your tasks are on Seesaw, so when you're ready please head over there and get started.  I've added all the documents you'll need below.

Friday 22nd January

Well it's Friday folks and nearly time for the weekend..... YAY!!!  

There's been so much great work produced.  Great star jumps ( Sam, Isaac, Luke, Harrison and Daisy);  Maths ( Jude, Trixie, Kallum & Evan ).  Wonderful drama ( Abbie, Reuben, Niamh, Maisie, Evie, Holly, Emerson & Isla); freeze framing ( Chance, Harry M and Harry C ) and amazing writing yesterday ( Owen, Harriet, Harry T, Freya and Zara ).  Oh and of course there's the stunning Stone Age jewellery ( Jacob, Sasha, Charlie and Xavier) what a performance from Team Odyssey!  Before we get started just a reminder to tune in to this week's Star of the Week assembly today...... it could be you!

Today's learning is all on Seesaw and is about checking whether we've got the hang of a few things.  Have we understood how to multiply 2 and 3 digit numbers by 1 digit?  Have we learnt our spellings? And how well did we write our Stone Age Boy stories? Miss Crowley has also set us a P.E. task on Seesaw.  So get your skates on and get over there.  I've added any necessary documents below should you need them.  Have a lovely weekend!!!!

Hello everyone!,

Thank  you to all those who have completed the Ridgeway Olympic Challenge this week.  There's been some fabulous effort and great scores achieved which will all go towards the various countries.  I wonder who is going to win?  If you haven't yet filmed your star jumps and recorded the scores then you really need to do it TODAY please!!! I know you wouldn't want to let your country down and let another one win, so get on it and send your videos in - all the details are on the Seesaw task set on Monday.

 

Right, let's get this show on the road!

All the Reading, English, Maths and History tasks for today can be found on Seesaw and are waiting for you there.   

I've added all the necessary documents below if you need them.  

Good Luck!

English:  Your task is waiting for you on Seesaw but if you want to print off the story plan document I've added it below for you. 

Maths: It's time to really get multiplying numbers sorted; so today we are going to take the next step in multiplying 2-digits by 1-digit.  This builds on our work from Monday and should hopefully help reinforce the methods we learnt. 

First, watch the video as many times as you need to https://vimeo.com/492463370 

Then have a go at as many questions as you can on the worksheet.

I've added the worksheet below and set the task on Seesaw so choose which way you'd like to complete the task.

Monday 18th January

Good morning everyone!

I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend and we'll have to wait and see if that's the last of the snow.  Well done everybody for such a great week's learning last week.  There was so much great work produced including Stone Age dancing, roll play & drama, re-telling Stone Age stories, maths games and of course those wonderful woolly mammoths. Great job guys!  

Right, new week, so what's happenin'?

The Ridgeway Olympic Challenge: Pop onto Seesaw to have a look at which country you are representing and who else is in your team.  Then have a go at the first challenge.  Good Luck! 

Reading: Today we are going to read all about what life was like in the Stone Age and then answer some questions from what you have read. I have added the texts here and put them on Seesaw for you.

ANSWERS : Please see documents below

Choose your challenge level: Bronze - 1 Star   Silver - 2 Star    Gold - 3 Star and get started

Read through the whole text carefully as many times as you need to until you feel you've understood it. Then look at the questions and try to answer them - underline or highlight any key words in the question / text that will help you.  Answers will be posted on our webpage at around 3pm. Good luck!

English: This week we are going to start creating our own stories about a child who goes back to the Stone Age. Therefore, we need to research the Stone Age by looking at websites and (if possible) books to really find out what life was like back then.

Our task today is to find out about life in the Stone Age compared to life today and record those differences on the sheet I've provided. Spend time using websites and books to find out what life was like in the Stone Age.

Here are some good websites to get you started:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z82hsbk 

https://www.dkfindout.com/uk/search/stone-age/

Record what you have found out on the sheet I've provided below, it has a venn diagram on it so remember that only things they had, used or did in the Stone Age goes in the Stone Age section and the same for things that we have, use or do Today. Anything that is the same for both goes in the middle section. Anything that doesn't go in any of the sections goes on the outside of the venn diagram. I've put the task on Seesaw for you to complete but if you're working in your books please send me a picture.

Maths: Today we are going to remind ourselves about methods to multiply 2 digits by 1 digit.  This should hopefully jog your memories about the methods involved and hopefully everyone will find today's OK to complete.  Start by watching the video as many times as you need to https://vimeo.com/492101238  Then complete as many questions as you can from the worksheet below.

Choose a Challenge Level - Bronze:  questions 1 - 4      Silver:  questions 1 - 6          Gold:  questions 1 - 8

Answers will be posted on the website at around 3pm

ANSWERS : Please see documents below

Art /DT: This week's task is waiting for you on Seesaw, so pop on over and have a look. Any problems the instructions are available below.

Howdy folks!

I hope you all had a brilliant time in the snow yesterday and if there's any left today please, please, please get out and enjoy it all over again today!  

When you're fully snowed out, here's what we're doing (maybe) today ;-)

IMPORTANT: You can choose to do none,  some or all of the following tasks today as you will no doubt be exhausted from all that snow!

Reading:  Carefully read the Stig of the dump Bookflix text below.  Then use the Bookflix Skills sheet and look carefully at the Re-tell in 5 section.  Your task is to focus on the five most important parts from the text and re-tell in your own words what has happened.  Write a sentence explaining each part in detail.  Write them in your remote learning books or on Seesaw and send me a pic when you're done.

English: We need to try and keep learning our spellings each week so today's English task is to read carefully though the powerpoint below and learn all about adding 'ly' to the endings of adjectives to turn them into adverbs.  The powerpoint explains what to do and there's a noughts and crosses game to play which should be a bit of fun. When you're done have a go at the completing the documents below (or on Seesaw).  These can be done today or if you prefer to complete them over the next week, then that's fine. Send a pic in on Seesaw when you've completed them.   Next Friday try and find someone to test you on this week's spellings.  I've also added a game on EdShed for you to play to help you learn them.

 

P.E: Miss Crowley has set you a task on Seesaw for today's P.E. lesson, so get your P.E. kit on and head over there!

Hi guys,

Well first up, it's snowing so stop what you're doing and get your coats, gloves and boots on.  Then get outside and have loads of fun in the snow! Sledge riding, snow angels, snow men are all out there waiting for you!  Have fun!!!!

When you get back in you can thaw out and continue reading. ;-) 

Congratulations on so much great debating about the Stone Age yesterday! I was seriously impressed especially how creative people were.  We had Abbie and Maisie debating live using their phones and so many of you getting family members involved so that you could respond to other sides of the debate.  You really can argue your points - there's definitely some lawyers and politicians in the making!!! A scary thought, I know!

Right, better crack on!

Today's learning looks like this:

Reading: We haven't done any Read Theory for a while so please use your logins in your remote learning books to get on and have a go at your latest text.  Read the text carefully and more than once if necessary before answering the questions.  Try and aim for 20 - 30 minutes work on this and see how many questions you can get right in this time. Move onto a new text if you finish the one you are working on.  I'll check the site later to see how people have got on.  Good luck! 

English: Listen to the Stone Age Boy story carefully by clicking the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqy5ENpagts 

Your task today is to retell the Stone Age Boy story in as much detail as possible to someone else - family member, friend or record it on Seesaw and tell me.  Use the connectives mat I've added below to help you link your sentences together when you are retelling the story.  You could listen to the story and take notes as you go along to remind you what happens.  Or you could make a cartoon comic strip of all the events which you could look at when you retell the story in your own words.  Story maps are another good idea or whatever method would work for you. 

Maths:  Today's math's is about using different written methods of multiplication.  I've set you the task on Seesaw but any problems please use this link to the video https://vimeo.com/491687378 and the worksheet is available below. 

Choose a Challenge Level - Bronze:  questions 1 - 2      Silver:  questions 1 - 4          Gold:  questions 1 -6

Maths answers - Please see document below.

Hello there guys, 

Today's learning looks like this:

Reading: Please have a look on Seesaw for today's task.

English: Look carefully at the images of the daily tasks people in the Stone Age had to do (I've added the images in a document below and put them on Seesaw with your English Task. 

When you've looked through them decide which one you would find the most difficult and the most fun

Write down and explain your reasons in your Remote Learning books. 

Use the list of conjunctions I've added below to help you explain. 

Maths: Your task is on Seesaw but here you go anyway,  I know a lot of people found our work on Factor Pairs last week quite tricky. So I've found a different way to explain what to do, which hopefully might help.

Click on the link and watch the video as many times as you need to so that you understand what to do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0wIJ4qhQW4

Then create a collection of Factor bugs to show off how clever you are.

Choose a Challenge Level - Bronze: 3 Factor bugs      Silver: 5 Factor bugs          Gold: 7 Factor bugs

Create your factor bugs on Seesaw or in your Remote Learning books Good Luck!

PSHE:  Today's PSHE lesson is all about ways we can keep our minds healthy.

Firstly, look through the Powerpoint I've added below all about Healthy Minds (or I've added a PDF version to this Seesaw task)

Next, click on the link and watch the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yF7Ou43Vj6c

Finally, complete the worksheet below (or the one on Seesaw) by drawing and explaining 5 different things you do (or will do) to keep your mind healthy.

You can draw your work in your remote learning books if you prefer. Good luck!

Wednesday 6th January

Well hello there! Welcome to the first day of our remote learning 2021 style and well done for finding your way to this page.  Well as you probably know by now our Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Monday night that schools would be closing until at least the end of this half term.  That means we won't be back all together in school for at least the next six or seven weeks - Big Boo Hiss!!!  So, we had better get used to this remote learning lark once again!  

I'll just explain what is going to happen - 

Each day I will post work for you on here and explain what to do and where the resources are.  We will use Seesaw to communicate with each other and I will often set tasks on there for you, just like we do for homework.  I will always tell you what to do each day on this webpage, so always look on here first before looking on Seesaw.  Each day we will do some Reading, English, Maths and some Topic work.

For Topic we'll do the following:

Art / DT -  Mondays

PSHE - Tuesdays

Science - Wednesdays

History - Thursdays 

P.E - Fridays. 

If you're going into school on any days to learn you'll do the same / similar type of lessons with the teacher helping you so we'll all learn together.

Any problems with anything please get your parents to email me btownsend@ridgeway.derbyshire.sch.uk 

 

Right, we better get started then - here's what we are doing today!

 

Reading: Bookflix - Use the Bookflix Skills sheet below to help you 'Thought Talk' and 'Circle & Fix' your way through the text I've put on Seesaw for you to complete. 

English: Use this link to listen to the story Stone Age Boy again https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqy5ENpagts

When you've finished the story open the Thesaurus Challenge sheet below and use an online thesaurus e.g. https://www.thesaurus.com/   to find different synonyms for each word on the sheet.  Write down the synonyms for each word in your remote learning book.

Choose a Challenge Level - Bronze: 3 synonyms   Silver:  5 synonyms  Gold:  7 synonyms 

Then use your new word lists to help you write a description of the Stone Age campsite scene picture I've added in the documents below.   You can continue to use the thesaurus to help you find better words to add into your description of the campsite.

Your description could go something like this: 

Before I knew it, I was at a campsite.  Om pointed towards a woman kneeling on a chestnut brown animal skin.  The woman appeared to be rubbing the skin with a small grey boulder.  Another woman nearby was carefully gutting fish and hanging them on a frame of wooden stakes and twigs.  etc, etc.

Write your description in your remote learning book and send a picture of it along with your list of synonyms on Seesaw.  I have set up for you to do this -  just open Seesaw and complete the English Task activity.  Remember to click 'Add response' before sending in your work.

Maths: Click on the link and watch today's maths lesson video https://vimeo.com/490692507  then open Seesaw and complete as much of the worksheet as you can.

Choose a Challenge Level - Bronze: questions 1 - 4   Silver:  questions 1 - 6  Gold:  questions 1 - 8 

Answers will be posted 3pm onwards

Look at the 'Mix and match sentences' sheet provided below.  Can you cut out and match the informal sentence starter to an ending that makes sense? Then can you match the sentence to an event in the film?

See if you can write informal chatty sentences that start with each sentence starter from the sheet and could be used in Tadeo Jones's diary about his adventure. 

e.g. Perhaps I will find treasure today.  Just think, I could be a rich man!

Think about what Tadeo might say then write your sentences in your remote learning books and send in a picture on Seesaw.
