Home Learning - Science (Summer 2):

 

For the next half term in Year 4 we will be looking at different ways of work scientifically. Worksheets without explanation are often a lot harder to get on with, therefore for Science it is much easier for you if a task has been set and you can get on with this, using the internet to help or resources you have at home. If you have any struggles or questions, please get in touch. All activities have been tailored to be able to be completed from your house, however if this is not possible, don’t worry – just do what you can!

 

These activities are to last the next few weeks so please do not feel like you need to do all of these at once:

 

• Choose one of the experiments from the last few weeks or from your favourite topics and set up a comparative test. This means think of two ways you could carry out the experiment and then write up your findings, explaining which way worked best and why.

• Again, choosing one of the experiments from the last few weeks or from your favourite topics, set up a new question to ask about it and see whether you are able to answer it by carrying out a fair, practical or comparative test. The best topic to use for the easiest experiments youcan carry out at home, will be states of matter. 

• Make careful observations by using scientific equipment – monitor the weather for the week. Draw a table and using a thermometer, keep track of the temperature for a week.

• Now, draw a bar chart! Draw a bar chart comparing the findings of the different changes in weather for the week.

• Can you now (using as many scientific words as you can) write up an explanation as to what you found for the week in regards to the changing weather, what your results looked like in a table and what further questions would you ask from your findings? 

• Something fun! Present your findings to your family. Stand in front of them, show them what you have done and using your knowledge, explain to them your findings as if you’ve got your own television programme or you have become a weather presenter!

 

 

Enjoy! Please share with us any activities you are able to do!

 

Home Learning - Geography/History:

 

Our Summer topic is the Ancient Egyptians! I would like you to do some research and produce a project (be as creative as you like)! Include the following things:

 

  • A timeline of events
  • Society in Ancient Egypt
  • The Pharaohs
  • Pyramids
  • Gods and Goddesses
  • Achievements/Inventions
  • The Nile
  • Mummification

 

Remember to tweet us your work! Good luck!

Home Learning WC 25th May 2020

 

This week will be a little bit different in terms of your home learning. As it is half term, I would like you to take the time to appreciate time with your family, using the PSHE section of the Y4 page to practise mindfulness and relax. You have all done so well with your online learning and I am so pleased that you are all doing ok. Use the links below to access some fun and calming activities, including a covid-19 time capsule. As always, I am missing you all greatly and cannot wait until we are all reunited again. heart

Home Learning - Science (Summer):

 

 

For the next half term in Year 4 we will be looking at ‘States of matter’. Worksheets without explanation are often a lot harder to get on with, therefore for Science it is much easier for you if a task has been set and you can get on with this, using the internet to help or resources you have at home. If you have any struggles or questions, please get in touch. All activities have been tailored to be able to be completed from your house, however if this is not possible, don’t worry – just do what you can!

 

These activities are to last the next 6 weeks so please do not feel like you need to do all of these at once:

 

  • What are states of matter? Write three different lists and draw diagrams to match of solids, liquids and gases.
  • Experiment time! What happens when a solid is dropped into a liquid? Try dropping a sweet or a mint into a fizzy drink and write an explanation of what happened.
  • Biscuit bashing! Can you transform a solid into a liquid state? It won’t fully become a liquid, but have you managed to change the state? Take a biscuit and crush it into as many pieces as you can. What happened? Draw a picture of before and after and write a few sentences describing the change.
  • Draw the water cycle – where does it begin? Where does it end? What happens from start to finish?
  • What is evaporation and what is condensation? Draw two diagrams of each and explain what they mean. Have you ever witnessed evaporation or condensation around your house?
  • Reversible changes. Are there any solids that can be changed to a liquid and then turned back into a solid? This is easiest done when carried out with food so please get permission before you carry this one out! Do you have anything in your fridge or freezer that starts off as a solid, is able to melt/turn to a liquid, but then once cooled is able to turn back to a solid again? Write an explanation on your findings.

 

Enjoy! Please share with us any activities you are able to do!

Home Learning - Science:

 

This half term in Year 4 we have been looking at ‘Sound'. Below are a list of experiments and activities that you could do with your child at home to continue their learning. These do not need to be bought in or be expensive, they have been created to be used with everyday objects that can be found around the house. You do not need to do them all, a selection has been included for you to decide which ones you would like to do. If possible, take photos and upload these onto our Facebook/Twitter Page so we can see what you got up to! A good way to record and evidence your work, would be to write a recount of what happened, a set of instructions or create a table so others can carry out the same experiment. Thank you in advance.

 

·       Build a string telephone and see whether it works, 

·       Find materials where vibrations are visible when sounds are made, 

·       Build instruments using objects from around the house and exploring the pitch they create, 

·       Create a table of different sounds that you hear around the house/garden and where they come from, 

·      Design and make your own stringed instrument. 

 

Enjoy! Please share with us any experiments you are able to do!
