Hi Year 4
Wow!! I had a really busy day yesterday. In the morning I did some online training with some of the other teachers and ETA's in school. After this, I had quick lunch and then met with Mr Raven Hill to talk about Maths in September. Finally, I had to rush away from school to get to my house and log into another meeting with Kirklees all about how we can get involved in more Art and Music activities next year.
When I had finished, I collected Jacob up from his grandmas and then I picked up a take away as I was too tired to cook!! I had a lovely chicken kebab and chips. I really enjoyed it but need to be extra healthy tomorrow!!
I hope you had a good day. I look forward to hearing your news. Please send me an email and update me about what you have been doing.
Good morning 4A,
I hope you have had a good day and the weather hasn't gotten you down too much. I am keeping busy in school - today I was in the green room again with the chickens! Hopefully the weather will pick up soon. I'll speak to you tomorrow.

Have a go at today's place value topic based on rounding to the nearest 100. When rounding to the nearest 100, you need to look at the digit in the tens column. If the digit in the tens columns is 5 or more, you round up to the nearest 100. If the digit in the tens column is less than 5, you round down to the nearest 100. When we round to the nearest hundred, we round to the nearest multiple of 100 e.g. 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900 and so on.
Here is a reading comprehension based on Wimbledon.
Day 3 Writing Task
Have a look at the plan you wrote yesterday for your new mountain. Today we are going to be using those ideas and are going to put them into sentences.
A description should have lots of powerful and creative vocabulary and our writing should create a greater impact on the reader. Try to include lots of adjectives, expanded nouns phrases and metaphors. You can also use personification (where you give objects human like features e.g. the wind hissed in the distance).
We are going to structure our writing into paragraphs. We are going to be writing in the first person and in the past tense. I have included an example below to help you.
Tropical mountain was a majestic place, full of tropical palm trees that stood tall like soldiers. Beautiful hibiscus flowers of every shade lay neatly in the luscious greenery. As I soaked up the beauty around me, I noticed toucans flying high in the sky.
You can either write this in your exercise or you can use the writing sheet I have included.
