Have fun and keep active! Here are your tasks for today, take your time and have breaks in between each task:
Task 1: English
Good morning year 4 - it's your favourite English lesson of the week - that's right, SPaG day!!
Today we would like you to watch the Oak Academy lesson below and complete the activities during the lesson.
The lesson is all about punctuating speech. We have done this before so hopefully this will be revision and an opportunity to practise your skills.
Once the lesson has finished, we would like you to write 10 more sentences with correctly punctuated speech. Please do not use the word 'said' - look for some alternatives such as the words used in the lesson (muttered, exclaimed, asked, declared ). You should write 5 sentences with the speech first, and 5 sentences with the speech second.
Well done year 4, keep working hard, Mrs M.
Task 1: Maths
LO: To divide a 4 digit number by a 1 digit number
