Year 4 Homework

It’s half term…

Posted on Thursday 17 February 2011 by Mr Roundtree

It’s half-term holidays next week, so there are no homework tasks or spellings next week.

Of course, regular practice and learning can still happen: reading each day, swimming, tables practice, trips to the library, walks around Roundhay Park… All will help your child have a happy and healthy holiday!

This week’s homework is talk time. It’s due in on Wednesday 16 February.

I know about stories set in imaginary worlds.

The children can think about stories in books or in films that feature imaginary worlds (eg. Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland).

What do they have in common? What are the characters like? How do they get to the other world? What is the setting like?

This will help the children when we start our story unit next week!

This week’s homework is creative and links to the literacy learning that we have been doing in class. It is due in on Wednesday 12 January 2011.

I can write a kenning poem.

 A kenning poem describes something without giving its name away. It uses verbs ending in ‘er’.

 Here is an example similar to the ones we looked at in class:

A loud-barker

A swift-sprinter

A mud-roller

A cat-chaser

A tail-wagger

Think of your own animal. Now write a kenning poem about your animal. Remember to think of all the verbs (doing words) that your animal does and then add ‘er’ to the end of them.

Adjectives/ Adverbs group: Try to use your ambitious vocabulary. Can you think of even better words eg. eater could also be scoffer or gobbler.  (Remember your hyphens too!)

Holidays approaching…

This week’s homework is creative. It is due in on Wednesday 01 December 2010.

‘I can find openings in stories.’

This links to our story-writing unit in literacy. The children need to find different opening lines (the first line) in stories and make a note of them. They could even sort them into dialogue (speech), action or description (think of ‘DAD‘. As it is a creative homework they may present their homework how they wish.
