Joe Wicks virtual PE – bodycoachtv on (Joe Wicks will now only be on a Monday and Wednesday) 

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 explain how to calculate the perimeter of squares and 


SC1: I can use a ruler to measure the length of sides of rectangles and squares in centimetres. 

SC2: I can add the measurements of sides together to calculate the perimeter. 

SC3: I can add the given lengths of sides together to calculate the perimeter of scaled drawings in metres.

Measuring in Centimetres: REVISION - Recap how to use a ruler to measure in centimetres. Use a ruler to measure the lines shown on the Measuring in Centimetres Sheet. Check your answers using the slide from the PowerPoint. 

Perimeter in Centimetres: Use the Lesson Presentation to help you to understand how we find the perimeter of a shape. Have a practise of calculating how to find the perimeters of rectangles and squares on the Calculating Perimeter Sheet. The Lesson Presentation poses two questions: Did you have to measure all of the sides? How about squares? Discuss that, in a rectangle, opposite sides are equal, so you would only need to measure the length and the width (and that in squares all sides are equal and you would only need to measure one side.) 

Perimeter in Metres: The Lesson Presentation shows scaled drawings of a farmer’s fields. Add together the measurements to calculate the perimeter. Work through the answers. Think about the most effective way to get to the answer e.g. in which order they added together the measurements. Remember that with adding it doesn’t matter in which order they are added. 

Choose your challenge Measuring Perimeter in Centimetres and Metres: Choose your challenge. 1 star is the easiest and 3 star is the hardest. If you choose a challenge and it is too 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 

LO: to identify the features of a non-chronological report 

SC1: I can explain the difference between fiction and non-fiction 

SC2: I can define what a non-chronological report is and what it is used for 

SC2: I can list and identify the features of a non-chronological report

There are a number of different kinds of non-chronological report. These include: 

Formal letter, Non-fiction book, Information leaflet, Instructions, Newspaper report or magazine article. Generally, non-chronological reports should cover a single topic or theme. Any report which mixes different topics can easily become confused and incoherent. 

What do we know about the structure and language used in non-chronological reports? Can you explain what you already know about non-chronological reports? 

Have a look at the Marine Molluscs non-chronological report. It is quite a simple report but it does contain the main structure and language features which they will need to include in their reports. First see what features you can identify and then use the Non-Chronological Reports Checklist to identify the different features on the report using the Marine Molluscs. 

Non-chronological reports follow a general structure and should include some of the following features: 

A topic title which covers the whole subject 

A brief introduction paragraph which gives a who/what/where overview 

Information grouped into paragraphs, which may include a sub-heading. 

Some information might be contained in fact boxes and bullet-point lists. 

Individual points supported by extra detail and examples or evidence. 

Present tense verbs, unless the report is historical. 

Third person pronouns and a formal tone 

These features vary between the different types of report and the writer should consider which features to include before beginning the process. 


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 

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

LO: to recall what I already know about world leaders

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 might have some pre-existing knowledge about world leaders or you may know nothing about it at all and that is fine. Still create your first page. Make sure you display this and really show what you already know. Have a look at mine in the final part of the day for some ideas of what you could do. 

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! 


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.

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.  


3:00 – 3:15
