Joe Wicks virtual PE – bodycoachtv on


Have a go at any one of the many amazing fitness videos that the children of Four Elms created last week.

9:30 – 9:50

Guided reading/Lexia

If you are a Lexia person you must complete Lexia during this time instead of guided reading.

Those of you doing the guided reading, please spend today reading the text and familiarising yourself with it. It is quite long and we will be using it all week so make sure if there are any words you don’t know please find out what they mean so that the text makes sense and you are confident and ready to answer questions on the other days.


LO: to name and describe different types of line.

SC1: I can name and describe horizontal and vertical lines.

SC2: I can name and describe parallel and perpendicular lines.

SC3: I can sort shapes and objects based on the property of lines.



Lines in Our Environment: Identify horizontal and vertical lines in nature from the images on the Lesson Presentation.

Different Types of Line: Have a look at the differences between horizontal, vertical, perpendicular and parallel lines.

Lines Snap: If you have someone to work with have a go at using the Types of Lines Cards and take it in turns to draw cards from the deck, name the type of lines and shout ‘snap’ when they match. If you don’t have an adult or a partner you can work with you can still do the activity but play like ‘pairs’ instead of ‘snap’.

Lines in 2D Shapes: We can classify 2D shapes using lines as a property. Identify

examples of parallel and perpendicular lines in the 2D shapes shown on the Lesson Presentation.

Choose your challenge. 1 star is the easiest and 3 star is the hardest. If you choose a challenge and it is to hard, don’t finish it, swap to an easier one. Similarly, if you choose one that is too easy, swap to a harder one. Think about which star challenge I normally give you at school.

If you finish this and you want an extension, I have added one but do not spend ages doing this. Only do the extension is you have time. This will really work on your justification and reasoning which is a very important part of your maths curriculum. Year 4 you should definitely give this a go if you have time.


Break time/snack time

11:00 – 11:45

Gather/Organise – What do I already know about this?

LO: to recall what I already know about nutrition, healthy eating and food

Watch the challenge by Mrs Mitchell and Miss Fermor.





At the beginning of every challenge we organise what we already know about things. This should be bright, colourful, have pictures and be well organised. You can present the knowledge you already have in a way that you feel comfortable but it needs to be done hand. You should have some pre-existing knowledge about nutrition and food from our café experience but do remember this is a challenge all about healthy eating and creating a meal. Make sure you display this and really show what you already know. Have a look at mine for some ideas of what you could do.

11:45- 12:15


Make sure you do at least one sound check and one studio session. Try to get as many right as you can in the fastest time possible. Remember you want to be aiming for less than 6 seconds to answer a question correctly.

12:15- 1:15


1:15- 2:00

Identify – What is the task?

LO: to explain what the task is and identify what may need to be learned, sourced or asked in order to do this



Make sure you have watched the video by Mrs Mitchell and Miss Fermor so that you understand what the challenge is for this week. We know that at the moment we are only supposed to be shopping for essential items and therefore going shopping for additional ingredients may not be possible.

In your book, explain in your own words what the challenge is. Is there anything you will need to find out in order to be able to achieve it? Is there anything you need to get? Is there anyone you need to ask for help with it? Are there any skills that you don’t yet have that you need to learn? Have a look at my example as one way of displaying your work but remember you can do this in any way you want to. You are in charge of how you present your work.

2:00- 2:30

Exercise – e.g. mindfulness yoga, fresh air in the garden, run up and down the stairs seeing if you can get faster every time!


SPaG: today you are going to thinking about conjunctions. We need to keep the knowledge we have gained so far this year fresh in our minds and this will help. Use the word bank to remind you of what a conjunction is and examples of this to help you. Then have a go at the activity. Remember to put your name in so I can see how you get on!
