English

In this lesson, we will be reading and exploring two of John Lyons’ poems from his collection ‘Dancing in the Rain’, including discussing structure, language and meaning.

Your task: As you go through the lesson I want you to write down in your book answers to all of the questions you are asked. At the end of the lesson, in addition to drawing your illustration, I would like you to copy out ‘Tell Me Mama’ into your book, practising your very best handwriting.

John Lyons – Tell Me Mama – for copying into books – be careful to include all of the punctuation.

Follow today’s lesson below and then complete the tasks which are explained in the lesson and on the, ‘Today’s task and help sheet.’ I have also included an example letter to help the children.

Computing

Today, I have some computing work for you to do from Mr Patterson 🙂

During ICT we are going to be using Scratch Online to build our projects. For today, I would like you to familiarise yourself with the controls from the online version of Scratch.

First, you need to login to Scratch Online from your internet browser (e.g. Google Chrome).

Please click here for instructions on how to sign into Scratch Online.

Once you are signed in, you will notice that Scratch Online is very similar to the version of Scratch that we use on our school computers.

For Computing today, I would like you to explore the controls within Scratch Online. First try adding a stage. Then, delete the cat sprite and add a sprite of your choice. Now, make your sprite move. If you get stuck please click here for a video which will help you with the algorithm for making a sprite move.

Remember to save your work regularly. This is done by clicking on ‘File’ in the top left of the screen and then clicking on ‘Save Now’. This will save your project to your online Scratch account.

Have a great day year 4!

Mrs Myers 🙂
