You may wish to look at our new topic front cover to help. Or think about these questions:

Who are they? Where did Vikings rule? What do they look like? What is a raider? What is a trader? Do you know of any key dates? Battles? Family jobs? 

Do not worry if you do not know much, this will be a working document and we will add more as we learn more.

Please listen along to Cressida Cowell reading 'The Wizards of Once' (below). This is an exciting high-adventure series - set in an ancient, magical time, full of Wizards, Warriors, Giants and Sprites. You may know of this author from her terrific 'How to Train your Dragon' series.

This is the story of a young boy Wizard and a young girl Warrior who have been taught since birth to hate each other like poison; and the thrilling tale of what happens when their two worlds collide.

Once there was Magic, and the Magic lived in the dark forests. Until the Warriors came...

Xar is a Wizard boy who has no Magic, and will do anything to get it. Wish is a Warrior girl, but she owns a banned Magical Object, and she will do anything to conceal it.

In this whirlwind adventure, Xar and Wish must forget their differences if they're going to make it to the dungeons at Warrior Fort.

Where something that has been sleeping for hundreds of years is stirring...

Chapter 1: 

 English

Watch the two videos to learn more about setting descriptions.


Read the following setting description and write down any words or phrases that you think are impressive.

The enormous trees loomed over the mossy green floor and stared down at the creatures below. Thin slivers of sunlight shone between the thick, dense leaves and created spotlights on the beautiful flowers underneath. There was a hum of noise: bees buzzing, monkeys howling, leaves rustling and birds calling. The air was thick with heat. Suddenly, the sky erupted and a downpour of water hit the treetops making a rumbling sound. The colours were incredible! Bright blue bugs, glorious green plants and stunning pinks, yellows and oranges from the unique flowers ran through the vast space.

What have they done well?

Choose one of the two main settings from the animation (beach/ice cavern) to describe in detail as if writing the start of a chapter. Your setting description must include: what can be seen? What can be heard? What can be felt? Impressive wow words from previous work. Aim to write at least six sentences.

If you are struggling, choose a writing frame that you would prefer.  Or use the example above to adapt to the desired setting.

When you have finished writing, read your setting description to a friend or family member. Ask them what they like about it.

Computing

This term we are going to be focusing on creating an interactive quiz to help our families learn all about the Vikings.

Have a play around with this quiz that I have created. What do you notice? How can you move through the different pages? What programming has been used?

Answer these questions using your findings.

Music

Duration is all about how long and short sounds are, beat, rhythm and metre.

Vocabulary: long and short, steady beat, rhythm pattern, metre 1 2 or 1 2 3 or 1 2 3 4.

 Look at the ‘Duration’ PowerPoint below:

View document 2_yr4_mus_spr1_wk2_-_duration.pdf

To help you understand duration, watch ‘The Beat Is the Heart of Music’ clip.

Then watch ‘Sweet Beets’ (it’s aimed at younger children, but still worth watching) and create your own 2, 3 and 4 metre at different speeds.

Watch the ‘Simple duple, triple and quadruple’ clip and try clapping and counting along with the beats.

 Then listen to Mike Oldfield’s ‘Only time will tell’

Can you create two different 4 metre beats to clap along to Mike Oldfield’s song for 8 beats (e.g., beet, beet, cherry, beet; and cherry, cherry, beet, beet).

Do you think you understand duration? Play guess the metre:

RE

This week, you are learning to describe the changing emotions within the events of Holy week.

To start with, complete the ‘Day’ column (starting with Sunday) in Holy week timeline. (You will add to this each week, so keep it somewhere safe!)

 Watch the ‘What is Easter?’ clip:

Can you then play the game on this site by putting the events in order?

Palm Sunday

Look at the slides below for learning about Jesus arriving in Jerusalem.

View document 2_yr4_re_spr1_wk2_-_holy_week2.pdf

Within just a few days, the people would pick for Jesus to be crucified! What must have happened for them to have changed their minds?

Now think about how Christians remember and express the emotions on Palm Sunday? Explore some hymns, music and prayers used by Christians on Palm Sunday. What feelings are evoked?

Hosanna (Palm Sunday):

Hosanna - Hillsong Worship:

Jesus Christ Superstar (Hosanna):

 Now take a look at this PowerPoint to recap the events of Palm Sunday.

Chapter 2:

English

For this lesson, we were hoping to role-play the start of the story, create freeze frames and then hot seat in role. If someone is available, you may still wish to do this and note down quotes from each character.

However, if your family is busy you may wish to create a comic strip for the scene instead. Add thought bubbles for the characters to reflect their thought process and emotions at different points.

Science

What will happen to the temperature in the classroom/your home/outside if we measure it every hour for a day? Will it stay the same during the night? When will it be hottest/coldest in these places? Make predictions about the changes in temperature you expect to see using this worksheet.

Revisit negative numbers by reading scales on this thermometer worksheet.

Record the temperature of your home (or outside) over the course of the day on the worksheet you have already made your predictions on. You will only need to measure one of these places.

Alternatively, if you do not have access to a thermometer, use this website link to get an accurate outside temperature throughout the day. Be careful to use the temperature that has been recorded not a prediction.

Met Office

The next day, use your data to create a line graph. See example below. Remember a line graph used to show changes over time, for example changes in temperature through a day. It is created by plotting points and joining them with straight lines). Remember to label both axis. 

Explain the changes in temperature throughout the day. Were your predictions accurate?

We are learning to be more aware of our surroundings and the people around us by noticing differences. Can you notice which objects are missing? Can you make the link about being observant and being aware of those around you?

Use the slides to play a variation of the tray memory game. Look at the first slide for a few seconds and then click through to the next slide which is blank. An object is going to be missing from the next slide and it’s your job, to spot which object it is. Repeat until you get to the end of the slides. We have to be observant and aware. ‘Too Much Selfie isn’t Healthy!’ is about being aware of others, noticing when they are in need and then asking the question, “what can I do to help?”

English

 You have 2 minutes to think of as many synonyms for said as you can. Start the timer and then post your score on Seesaw so we can see who has the highest.

 Now sort these synonyms into the emotion it portrays. For example, bellowed suggests someone is shouting so I think the character would be angry. Therefore, under the angry face I would write bellowed. If you did not think of many said synonyms, you could use this word mat to help.

View document emotion_said_synonym_task.pdf

Now have a go at finish the dialogue on this sheet. Write in the appropriate said synonym.  

Challenge: Can you also include adverbs, actions or propositions to make the dialogue even better?


History

Imagine it is 815AD and you are a tribe of Saxons living near the sea. You have heard that other villages have been attacked by fierce warriors who arrived by boat. Now strange boats have been seen just off the nearby shore. Therefore, you really ought to hide and spy on the boats to work out if they belong to the attackers and what they have come for. It will be safer if just one person goes to spy on the boat at a time and you will have to be quick or you could be caught spying! And who knows what could happen if it is the same warriors!

 So… If your adult have the time, please advise them to print off this SECRET image and put it into any old cardboard/shoe box with a peeping hole in the lid like below. If you are not able to do this, Do not worry. Have a look at the secret image and try from memory to draw it. Then skip to the *

 We were going to this together in groups at school so if you have a sibling who would like to play, feel free to take it in turns. Otherwise, you will just have just 10 seconds to look at the boat, then race back to a table with a plain piece of paper and a pencil on. Then 10 seconds to sketch it, Then 10 seconds to think about what to look for next time. The idea is that each one of the team builds on what the previous spy has drawn, so they must help each other.

 When the drawings are ‘complete’, you then have just 25 seconds to make any last minute changes to your drawings.

 Now, the boats are sailing away so you can safely have a closer look. You can now look at the SECRET image. Now you can change any part that you like.

 *When the activity is finished, summarise what you now know about the Viking boats. What else do you still need to know. Write down as many questions as you like. e.g. how many men did a boat carry?

To answer the questions you can now use a child friendly website, like Kiddle, to do so.

French

Read aloud and learn the following phrases (click here for some examples):

  • - food la nourriture
  • - What foods do you like? Quel nourriture aimes-tu?
  • - I like j’aime
  • - I don't like je n’aime pas
  • - but mais
  • - I prefer je préfère
  • - I hate je déteste

Now, using the table of foods/ les table de nourriture) write five example sentences of foods you like, dislike, prefer or hate

e.g., I like vegetables, but I prefer meat J'aime les légumes, mais je préfère la viande

Now convert these speech bubbles to create a dialogue between Jotun and his father. What order would they go in?. Make sure the conversation flows and you include all of the appropriate punctuation. If you are struggling, you can cut out the sentences I have already created. If you would like a challenge, have a go at adding in adverbs or actions at the beginning or end of dialogue.

You can now check your dialogue by downloading the free app ChatterPix Kids with an adult's assistance.

Some of you will have already seen this before. Here are some examples of different speech structures.

What do you notice? Can you find a said synonym, adverb, action, speech, punctuation? Create a key in your book.

Dialogue should move the narrative on and so sometimes, it should be woven into descriptions of the action taking place. Have a look at this extract from Michael Morpurgo's An Elephant in the Garden to see this.


Remember new line, new speaker and that every bit of speech should have punctuation before the inverted commas.

 Now have a go at creating your own dialogue using at least one of each structure. Number these as you write to ensure this. If you are struggling, you can use my example but change words or speech.

This week you will be developing your understanding of changing emotions of Holy week and the ways in which Christians remember the events.

Holy Monday

Look at the PowerPoint below for Jesus at the temple.

Now watch this video clip of the scene as Jesus cleanses the temple.

What emotions did he show? Why?

Look at these famous pieces of art showing Jesus’ emotions. Now you try sketching your own ‘angry Christ’ at the temple.

 Add ‘Holy Monday’ to your Holy week timeline and summarise the events.

Yesterday you should have frozen two different coloured ice cubes using a few drops of food colouring. So now you should be ready to turn out the two ice cubes and leave them side by side on a plate indoors.

What do you think will happen? Record your ideas.  Predict the changes you expect to see and justify your predictions using what you know about solids and liquids. Try to include the following vocabulary;

solid, fixed shape, frozen, melt, temperature, increase, liquid, particles.

Can you predict what will happen to the different colours?

HeartSmart

Find a picture of someone on the internet - try and guess what the person is saying, thinking or feeling. Write it down, now ask someone in your house what they think the person in your picture is saying, thinking or feeling.  Record their ideas.  You may want to do this several times with other people in your house.

Did anyone get the same kinds of emotions/feelings when they looked at the pictures?

Being HeartSmart is about considering other people’s feelings. It’s not about always doing what another person wants us to do but nevertheless understanding their feelings can be helpful. Being HeartSmart means loving ourselves and loving others, we’re powerful when we find a way that does both.

The slides in the PowerPoint below are there to remind you that the Power ON button icon on the slides reinforces the I = loving ourselves and  O = loving others.

English

 

What can you see, hear, smell, feel? Brainstorm these onto a sheet of plain paper. Now add adjectives to describe these nouns. Create expanded noun phrases using these adjectives and nouns. Remember an expanded noun phrase follows the structure determiner, adjective, noun. For example, the towering cliff. If you decide to use a list of adjectives in your sentence, do not forget to use commas. For example, the towering, razor-sharp cliff. 

Challenge: use a thesaurus to up-level adjectives.

RE

In RE we are looking ahead to Holy week and thinking about changing emotions.

Discuss what emotions are, how they affect us and how they change? Can you generate a long list of emotions?

Look at these photos of different emotions. Can you name the emotions shown in the photos?

Think of a situation where emotions could change? What might have happened? 

Using your emotion list, can you to label the ‘stick man’ images with possible emotions?

We will be looking at how emotions can change in the events of Holy week.

EXT: now investigate the miracles that Jesus performed. Can you find five examples?

Look at your sentences from yesterday. Try to extend them by using a preposition. Remember a preposition tells you where something is in relation to something else.

The razor-sharp cliffs angrily towered over the vulnerable village. I even managed to use and adverb, can you spot it?

Challenge: Think about the mood you are trying to create. Is it a joyful scene? Does it create  a positive or negative emotion? Adapt your language to create the most appropriate mood.

Science

Recap your knowledge of solids, liquids and gases using the BBC webpage.

Think about what happens to ice-cream if it is left out in the sun and also how to make ice-cubes. In each case a change is happening, either by adding heat or by removing it. What other examples can you think of, where an object changes either by having heat added or taken away? Record your ideas or research. Can you group them into examples where heat is taken away (and therefore the temperature will decrease in one colour) and the examples where heat is added (and the temperature will increase) in another.

What does the word ‘temperature’ mean?

Can you record your ideas and research on a poster?   How is it measured?  What key words or equipment are linked to temperature and where/how do we use temperature in our everyday lives?

HeartSmart

 Can you suggest ways to show love for others? Can you demonstrate loving others?

 (Use this worksheet to record your ideas)

Is it better to give or get from others?

By ‘giving’ we want you to think of the many different forms; it could be a gift, help, attention, time, etc.

Is it better to give or get?

Why is it better to give? (seeing we have made someone happy is a gift to us as well!)

Create a list of different ways you can show love for others and record your ideas on paper.

Being HeartSmart means knowing that just as we are important, other people are important too. As we become aware of the people around us and consider their needs as well as our own, our hearts and theirs are strengthened.

How can you show love for your classmates, or family at home, today?
