Free Reading

Hi everyone,

Another great website to share with you.

https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/class

Oxford Owl are now adding free eBooks to their website to allow children to read books from their correct reading level at home. I have set Class 4 up with a class login. You can access it by clicking the red ‘My class login’ button and entering the following details:

Username: mrweaver
Password: MrWeaver

You can then search for the correct reading band to find appropriate books or you can search by theme or age. The majority of children read at or above ‘brown book band’. I hope this is helpful!

Mr Weaver

Class 4 – Maths and Science

Maths:

Today’s challenge is to find as many lines of symmetry in a 2-D shape. I suggest using the 2-D shapes you created earlier in the week.

 

Science:

MRS GREN is an acronym often used to help remember all the necessary features of living organisms: Movement, Respiration, Sensitivity, Growth, Reproduction, Excretion and Nutrition.

Today I would like you to write the acronym down vertically on a piece of paper and explain each feature. Click the link and take notes to help you explain each feature – try to explain in your own words https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpZUCo_rKLc

Finally, draw a picture of each feature.

Good luck
