Today marks the end of the Spring Term!
I appreciate that the last two weeks have been strange and challenging at times for us all.
Thank you for bearing with me and working so hard Year 4, I am so proud of you all...
For today, I have come up with some fun and interesting lessons (I hope!) so please look at the plan for today;
Spellings - test
Maths - challenge
English - Cinderella story
Topic - What have you learnt this term
GOLDEN TIME - Free time
I am curious to know who is still starting their day with the Joe Wicks workouts and ending it with a diary entry?
My diary entry today (Thursday) would say,
Today at Thythorn would have been Egyptian day! I had so many plans for it. I know the children would have looked incredible dressed up... It also would have been our first exhibition, I will have to make sure we do one soon, although, the photo updates kinda work like that for me. I'm seeing what the children are doing at home. I have to say, I am so proud of them all and how hard they have been working.'
Please test your child on their group words.

You need a piece of paper and a pen/pencil.
This is a 15 questions in 5 minutes challenge. Can you complete all these in 5 minutes or less. Use the timer below and then get a grown-up to check. Do you have a grown-up to race? You could then check each others!:
Write down a 4 digit number - start the timer and race to answer these:
1) What number comes after it?
2) Is it odd or even?
3) What number is 2 before it?
4) Add 10 to the number
5) Subtract 10 from the number
6) Write the number in words
7) Take 100 off the number
8) What is the sum of the digits? (eg 2453 = 2+4+5+3)
9) Is the number greater or less than 5000?
10) Can you halve the number?
11) Partition the number (eg 2453 = 2000+400+50+3)
12) Can you double the number?
13) Add 1000 to the number
14) Is your number a multiple of 5?
15) Multiply your number by 1 then by 0
Today I am setting you a choice of different challenges to choose which you would like to complete...
Using your knowledge of multiplication and division, I would like you to reason if the statements given are always, sometimes or never true. But remember you must give a clear reason why it is always, sometimes or never true.
e.g. two odd numbers always makes an even number.
This is always true, as an odd plus an odd number always makes a even number, for example, 1 + 3 = 4 and 123 + 829 = 952
Can you put the numbers 1 to 8 into the circles so that the four calculations are correct?
(This one is VERY challenging)
How many ways can you find to put operation signs (+, −, ×, ÷) between the digits make 100?
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 = 100
(I wonder how this will go... Good luck!)
Can you put the multiplication square back together again (printing and sticking required)
Today I would like you to write your Cinderella Story.
I've included our success criteria to remind you what I would ask you to include in your writing...
Use punctuation correctly, including;
For this lesson I would like you to create a mind map/thought map which shows all that you have learnt from our topic Egyptian Settlers.
Remember we have learnt;
I want you to show this in whichever way you want, and have fun doing so!
In school, when golden time is given, the children have 30 minutes to play.
Often we will give the children a choice of playing outside, construction based toys, colouring, film choice and so on. It is a time to play but NOT for screen time.
I would love for the children to have a chance to be creative and build or make something cool and unusual! Please have fun :)
