Tudor Monarch extras!

Tudor Monarch extras
This homework is optional! It is a bit of fun and could be a family project which carries on the learning we are doing at school! Share our enjoyment of the Tudors-you may learn something!

Bring it in whenever it is ready-there is no time limit!

The children have been busy researching their chosen Tudor Monarch and are now making team posters to show what they have learnt.  For your homework we’d like you to create something to add to the presentation that gives additional interesting facts about the monarch.

The way you present can be as creative as you like e.g. powerpoint, Morpho, a model etc.    

Think about the examples you were shown from last year and look on the blog for links to more creative and imaginative examples.

Many thanks

  • Divide the answer by how many numbers there are.

For homework this week complete another 5 or more questions from the sheets below-choose your own level of challenge.

Find the mean Pink

Find the mean Yellow

Find the mean Green

Find the mean Peach

If you really want to challenge yourself, try to find some averages around the home-see Mrs Judd’s examples! This is optional:-

Literacy Homework 10.03.17

Literacy Homework 10/03/17 due ASAP

For our newspaper topic, the children have chosen what they would like to write a newspaper article about. For homework, children are to collect quotes from real people that they can use in their article as direct and reported speech. If children need to ask people around the school, they are welcome to do so in their own break times or during homework club at lunchtime on Monday.
For example: If their newspaper report is about Guilbert – the school dog, they will need to prepare questions to ask Mrs Lovell and find her around the school during break or lunch to politely ask her a few questions.
When interviewing children should:
• Have clear questions ready to ask their interviewee.
• Write answers in note form (in homework books).
• Repeat interviewees answers back to them to make sure they have written down to double check.
• If possible, take a photograph and send to their class teacher/print a copy.

Literacy Homework 27.01.17

Stories from another culture

The children have enjoyed re-telling the African story ‘The Awongalema tree’ in literacy.  They have then been planning their writing choosing from 3 challenges:

  • Writing the story from a different point of view e.g. an animal from the story
  • Writing the original story in their own words
  • Writing a substituted story (changing the setting, animals to fit with another culture)

For homework, children are to practice re-telling ‘The Awongalema Tree’ story. The children can think about their story telling skills they used earlier in the week to help them.  If you want to record any story-telling and email to the teacher, you are more than welcome! Children can also discuss their ideas they have been planning for their own writing.

This homework is due in on Monday as the children will begin their writing then.

Many thanks,

Year 4 teachers.
