## Good morning Year 4!

I’m sorry guys, I didn’t get a chance to do an audio file today!

I really hope you’re all well and I’m would love to find out what you have been up to...

I will be putting photos up tomorrow to show you what people have been up to, so please send me yours so I can share them with everyone.

Miss you all, and hope to hear from you soon,

Miss Kaur

Our plan today;

Morning work - Timestable rockstars

English - Final draft

Maths - Decimals

Science - boat building

Wellbeing Wednesday

Story - How to Train your Dragon

## English

Today you will be using the paper you created to write the final version of your Viking story.

The focus of this lesson is your handwriting, maintaining neat and joint handwriting.

To ensure your handwriting is neat, remember to sit in a sensible place, sitting up straight and with both feet on the ground.

(I've included a little poster to help)

## Maths

Today you are going to learn about hundredths!

Hundredths are smaller than tenths, we know them as fractions 1/100... Let's recap on what you know.

Please complete the powerpoint presentation and remember to read through the questions carefully and that it is okay to make a mistake!

I have added an extension (it is completely optional and you do not have to complete it)

## Science

In Viking times, the most common method to travel long distances was on boat, the Vikings were very famous for this... (we will learn more about that tomorrow)

Today’s challenge is a bit of a junk modelling/outdoor learning experience. Try and build a ‘boat’ like structure to test out in the sink / container.

To help you with this, you will need to think carefully about how the weight is distributed for different items on your ‘boat’ and if it will float or sink!

Have fun!
As always, I’d love to see how you found this activity 😊

## Wellbeing Wednesday
