Hindu Gods (Same text as last week)
English: Pick 3 random items that you can find around your house, e.g. a toothbrush, a plate and a cushion. Write an exciting story that involves these 3 items – they can either come alive or be used in a different way in your story. I would like you to focus on:
- Year 4’s Fronted adverbials (don’t forget the comma after!) I have attached a fronted adverbial word mat.
- Year 3’s Powerful verbs – e.g. instead of the toothbrush went to the kitchen, the toothbrush dashed/flew/hurried/zoomed.
- Exciting, descriptive vocabulary to describe the characters and the settings.
- Inverted commas for dialogue (speech).
Make sure your story has a beginning, build up, problem, solution and ending.

Year 4: Play this game where you build your own fractions! You can choose to do this using shapes or numbers. I would suggest choosing the shape levels first, to help you see the fractions. Write down the equivalent fractions into your blue maths books and try drawing the fractions too. https://phet.colorado.edu/sims/html/build-a-fraction/latest/build-a-fraction_en.html
Once you feel confident with identifying equivalent fractions, try this game where you match them up https://phet.colorado.edu/sims/html/fraction-matcher/latest/fraction-matcher_en.html.
