We are now moving on to recapping column addition. You should be familiar with the column method of addition from your learning in Year 3, but there is a video below to remind you if you need it. This video looks at 4 digit numbers and exchanging - so it is the tricky maths! Let me know if you have any problems or worries about this topic. Once you are confident, have a go at the below questions.


1. 574 + 294

2. 354 + 459

3. 705 + 246

This lesson we are concentrating on cyber bullying. What does that mean? Using the template below, please draw or write everything you know about cyberbullying.


Once you have done this, have a read through the presentation to learn some more about this topic. Use the resources to identify kind messages that could be sent online, rather than unkind ones. There is also some information about cyberbullying laws. Following all of this research, please add to your original cyberbullying template in a different colour with the new things you have learnt. 


We are using this time to finish our learning of the human and physical features of Australia from last week. Please make sure you have a clear list of examples of both human and physical features that can be found in Australia. 


Today we are learning about how animals have adapted to their environments. Have a look at the video on the BBC Bitesize link below. Can you then research how an African elephant has adapted to a warm climate and how a polar bear is adapted to a colder climate? Think back to our previous learning on climate zones and see if you can identify animals that have adapted to fit into some of these climates. You can present your ideas however you like smiley


The objective today is to create a piece of artwork in the style of a Dreamtime story. Read the Dreamtime story on the presentation (The Rainbow Serpent) and draw the journey as you read it. If you are able, see if a grown up can draw their version of the journey as well and discuss how yours and theirs are similar or different. 


Then, have a look at how indigenous Australians made Dreamtime paintings using the dot technique. You will need cotton buds for this activity if you have any. If not, try using your little finger instead. 

Either complete the attached sheet using dot painting or see if you can challenge yourself to create your own artwork that represents a journey using all of the knowledge you have of indigenous symbols and artwork.
