A huge well done to this Whizzy Worker for making her own clock. Very impressive work!
Check out these happy whizzy workers! A big well done to you both!

L/O:To time and order different activities

I can remember to

Use a clock or timer accurately

Note down the start and finish time of different activities

Record the time in minutes and seconds

Order the times from shortest to longest

Challenge: to covert from minutes to seconds (1 minute = 60 seconds)

Today your task is to time yourself doing different activities throughout the day.  Record them in this table and then you can order them from the shortest to the longest time. If you would like an extra challenge, try this table which includes a conversion.

Here are examples of both:

Recording Tables

For an even further challenge, you could try to add up the total amount of time for all the activities!  For this you may find the conversion chart below useful.

If you would like to have some extra challenges, have a go at these questions.

Thursday 18th June

L/O:To be able to tell the time using an analogue clock

I can remember to:

Make each time using my clock

Draw the hour hand showing which hour it is at, has just moved past or is nearly at

Draw the minute hand showing how many minutes past the hour or how many minutes until the next hour

Check that my clock shows the time it is supposed to

Challenge – make the original time then add on minutes or hours past/before

First of all, watch this video, by the amazing Miss Morecroft, showing you how to make your own clock at home.

Questions

Tuesday 9th June

Hello Fantastic Foxes. We’re continuing with Roman Numerals today and this time we’re looking at working out solutions to questions that contain Roman Numerals.

LO To solve problems that contain Roman Numerals

I can remember to:

Use my knowledge of partitioning to recognise Roman numerals

Use the prompt sheet if needed

Convert Roman Numerals in a calculation

The first task contains a secret code that needs converting into Roman Numerals to find the answer. There are 3 levels of challenge - look for the stars at the bottom of the pages and you can select 1 star, 2 stars or 3 stars (most challenging).  You can then use the same sheet to make a code of your own!

When you have finished task 1, you can try these fluency and problem solving tasks if you have time. Again, there are three levels of challenge to choose from.

Fluency

Problem Solving

Monday 8th June

Hello Fantastic Foxes, Miss Travis here.  Today we're revising our work on Roman Numerals.  When we did this in class I was so impressed with your work on this.

First of all, take a look at the slides to remind yourself of how Roman Numerals work.  Then, have a look at the two videos which explain this further and provide ways of remembering.  In Y4 we learn numbers up to 100 in Roman Numerals so you can stop the videos when these have been shown (times are shown above the video link).

You can then watch the video of the tasks for today being modelled.  There are 3 different levels of tasks.  If these are too tricky, you can just select a range of numbers (try 10 or more numbers) between 1 and 100 to represent as Roman Numerals.  You can write them down or make them using sticks or string as shown in the modelling video.  There is a prompt sheet to help you!

Don't forget to upload any work you do on the google form here. I'd love to see what you do!

LO To write Roman Numerals

I can remember to:
Partition the numbers into tens and ones
Use the prompt sheet as support where needed
Draw or make the Roman Numerals

Roman Numerals

Watch up to 2 mins 09 seconds

Watch up to 1 minute 12 seconds

Making Roman Numerals

Friday 5th June

L/O: To complete pattern with lines of symmetry.

Draw the other side of the shapes. Count how many squares are from the line.

There are going to be 3 different ability worksheets.

Symmetrical Artwork!

Try creating your own Symmetrical Artwork at home!

All you have to do is pick a picture you would like to draw (like our Fantastic Fox oil pastels) and cut it in half. It could be a person, object, animal.. its totally up to you!

Here are a few examples for you to try!

CLIC TEST

I am so impressed with your responses to the CLIC tests and the online home learning. Have a go at this weeks CLIC.

Thursday 4th June

L/O: To identify lines of symmetry in 2D shapes.

What is symmetry?

When something is symmetrical one side is a mirror image of the other side. A line of symmetry is the line you can draw to show that both sides are the same.

You can use a mirror to help you draw the other side of a shape.

If something is not symmetrical it is known as asymmetrical. Some shapes are symmetrical and some shapes are not.

Here are some symmetrical buildings you can see across the world.

Check out this Symmetry Song

You will need

• A ruler
• A small mirror (If you have one)

For today's task it may be easier if you can print the document off below.

If not, you can complete from a computer or tablet screen.

First, you will need to look and identify the 2D shapes. Once you've named the shape you will need to investigate and decide if there are any lines of symmetry or not (symmetrical or asymmetrical) using your ruler and mirror. Some shapes have more than one line of symmetry!

Some answers for the Problem Solving

Wednesday 3rd June

L/O: To complete problems including coordinates.

Using your skills from the last 2 days, complete the problems.

Write your answers in full sentences and check them at the end.

Tuesday 2nd June

L/O: To describe the translation of a 2D shape on a coordinate grid.

1) First, recap your 2D shapes by having a dance and trying the Shape Game by clicking here to get your brains warmed up!!

2) I thought I would mix up your learning today so instead of watching a video about today's lesson your going to read the PowerPoint below on how to describe the translation of a 2D shape.

PowerPoint

3) Once you've read the PowerPoint your ready to start today's activities. Below are the slides with questions 1st you must write the starting coordinates of every corner of the shape, 2nd count how many squares the shape has moved (up, down, left or right), 3rd write the finishing coordinates of every corner of the shape in its new moved (translated) position.

REMEMBER: Across the corridor (BOTTOM FIRST) then up the stairs (SIDE AXIS SECOND)

1st question sheet = Simple

2nd question sheet = Medium

ANSWERS are at the end to check.

Fun Challenge

Can you try and spell your friends and your own name using the coordinate grid?

Write the coordinates out below.  Remember- Along the corridor and up the stairs.

Monday 1st June

L/O: To write the coordinates of objects and translate them to a new coordinate.

Following on with our space theme as seen in Literacy and Guided Reading. This weeks maths will involve you reading coordinates of objects and moving them (translate) them to a new coordinate.

Watch the video below to see recap how to FIND and WRITE a coordinate of an object.

REMEMBER: Across the corridor (BOTTOM FIRST) then up the stairs (SIDE AXIS SECOND)

Year 4 - Grid Coordinates

Want to do some practice questions now? Visit http://mathsonline.com.au to access a bank of questions. You can also access the maths lesson summary and works...

The TRANSLATION of objects is quite simple. Move the object however many squares it says. 3 squares left means move the object 3 squares left. Two down means move the object two squares down.

Here are today's worksheets, use the stars at the top to pick which level of ability you would like to do

*Simple

**Medium

***Hard

REMEMBER: Across the corridor (BOTTOM FIRST) then up the stairs (SIDE AXIS SECOND)

The answers are at the end so no peeking early!

Friday 22nd May

L/O: To add and subtract fractions with the same denominator.

When adding and subtracting fractions the rule is different to when finding equivalent fractions.

This time the DENOMINATOR stays the SAME and you ADD or SUBTRACT the NUMERATORS.

Over to Amber in the videos below where she will recap how you add and subtract fractions.

Adding fractions with the same denominator

This week we are looking at adding fractions with the same denominator using concrete resources to help us. We begin by looking at adding fractions which add...

Subtracting fractions with the same denominator

This week we are looking at subtracting fractions with the same denominator using concrete resources to help us. We begin by looking at subtracting fractions...

QUESTIONS

Your questions this week you have to use skills to fill in the blanks in the pyramids.

Start by adding the bottom of the pyramid to find a total above.

There are three different sheets by looking at the star at the top left you will be able to see the difficulty.

*Easy

**Medium

***Hard

After each question sheet are the ANSWERS. So no peaking until you've completed the questions.

CLIC TEST

For CLIC this week I have decided to mix it up and try one big CLIC test.

It ranges from CLIC 10-14.

I've been really impressed by how many children have been trying this every week.

Well Done Foxes!!

Thursday 21st May

L/O: To find equivalent fractions.

Questions

Wednesday 20th May

L/O: To find unit and non-unit fractions on amounts.

For the rest of this week we will be looking at FRACTIONS. This will all be revisited learning and nothing new!

For today's maths You will need:

• Something to count with (counters, sweets, pasta, paperclips- whatever you can find around your house!)
• Some toys to share your counters with

First, watch Amber in the video below to recap how to find fractions of amounts using a bar model. You will need the following items above.

Fractions of amounts using the bar model

In this video we look at finding fractions of amounts for both unit and non-unit fractions. We use concrete resources and the bar model to help children 'see...

Using what you recapped from the video try using your fraction skills to complete the puzzles below. The first one is using 'unit fractions' and the second is 'non unit fractions'.

Remember when finding non-unit fractions divide by the bottom and times by the top.

E.g    3  of  24.    24 ÷ 4 = 6   6x3 = 18           3  of  24. = 18

4                                                                 4

Tuesday 5th May

Hello Fantastic Foxes! Miss Travis here again. I hope you got on well with finding the perimeter of rectangles around your house. Don’t forget to share your work with us on the google form!
Today, we are going to continue working on perimeter.

LO: Calculate the perimeter of a rectangle

I can remember to:
Find the total distance around the edge of the rectangle to find the perimeter
Find the best approach to calculate
Use my knowledge of doubling to help me calculate
Write the unit of measurement in the answer

Let’s remind ourselves what perimeter is:

In the previous lesson, we used the method of doubling the length and doubling the width then adding these together to find the perimeter.  Here's an example:

Depending on the numbers you're working with, it may be easier sometimes to add the length and width first then doubling this total (as you're calculating 2 lots of both for the perimeter).

From our number bonds, we know that 13 + 7 = 20 so this is an easy calculation to work out.

For your activity today, you have some measurements of the length and widths of different rooms within a house.  Your task is to calculate the perimeter of these rooms.  Think about which of the two methods above would be the best to use for each question.  There's some questions that suit the first method and some that suit the second.  See if you can work it out which one is the best to use!  As the measurements are larger you will notice the unit of measurement this time is in metres (m).

Monday 4th May

LO: To measure and calculate the perimeter of shapes

Hello Fantastic Foxes - Miss Travis here again. I miss you all and hope you are doing well. I've got some maths for you to have a go at today. We're going around the house to do some measuring to recap our work on perimeter .  First watch the video then have a look around your house for some items to measure so you can calculate the perimeter.  Remember the larger the item, the larger the perimeter so the more challenging it will be to calculate!

When you've completed the tasks, please spend a minute to complete this google form and share your work from today. We’d love to see what you’ve been up to!

Y4 Perimeter

You can make your own table or use this one.

If you're not able to take your own measurements at home, you can use these task sheets. Alternatively you could do both!  They are not the actual measurements as the numbers are changed for different levels of challenge - mild, medium and hot!

I can remember to:

Identify some squares and rectangles around your house

Measure and record the length and width using a ruler or tape measure

Multiply the width by 2 and the length by 2 using an efficient method

Add the totals together to find the perimeter using an efficient method

Write the correct unit of measurement for the perimeter

Vocabulary

Perimeter (the distance around the outside edge of a shape)
Square
Rectangle
Measure
cm (centimetres)
mm (millimetres)
Length (the measurement of the longest sides of a rectangle)
Width (the measurement of the shortest sides of a rectangle)
