Dahl (Year 4)

Welcome to Dahl Class

 

Homelearning 25th September-2nd October

 

Maths

Practise numberbonds to 20 on Mathshed.  (I have set it up so that you have to play 4 games.) If you get quicker, it will help us to find the total number of Dojo Points for each house more quickly!

 

Reading

Our reading comprehension exercise books have now arrived!  The text and questions are stuck into your book.  Please remember to write neatly in pencil and to answer the questions in complete sentences - no one word answers please!

 

Also remember to keep reading at home.  This weekend, I will collect in the BHBOAEs for surnames A to L.  They will be returned to you by Tuesday.  Next Friday, I shall collect in the books for people with surnames M-Z. 

Homelearning 18th-25th September

 

Maths

Our first maths topic is place value.

I have set some activities for you on MyMaths.  There are some online games at TopMarks that will also help you to improve your understanding of place value.   

 

If you have time, you can practise your tables!  You will find some links if you press the star below.

 

Reading

Unfortunately, our reading comprehension exercise books still haven't arrived!  To keep practising your skills, please read at least 4 times this week and write the dates in your Bishop's Hull Book of Almost Everything (BHBOAE).  It would be even better if you could read aloud to someone and answer their questions about what you've read.

Dear Parents

Roald Dahl Activities

 

Which Roald Dahl books will you try to read or listen to this year? 

 

You could write book blurbs or book reviews about them.

Why not try retelling the stories yourself 

(perhaps from the viewpoints of different characters)

or write other stories using the same characters? 

You could even take characters from different books

and put them all together in a story!

 

Mrs Turner's daughter made this amazing Roald Dahl cake for World Book Day.

 

 

You could try designing your own cake based on a children's book. 

What ingredients would you use?  (You could have a sensible and a silly version!) 

 

Have a look at the activities at https://www.roalddahl.com/home/kids

Have you seen these 10-minute challenges from famous authors? 

There are lots of them. 

Perhaps they will help you to discover a new favourite author!

  • Practise Rolling Numbers.
  • Develop your drawing skills with Rob Biddulph.
