Good morning Year 4.

I hope you’ve all had a good weekend and continue to stay well and safe.

Are any of you following Joe Wicks in the morning?

Today, in maths, we are looking at the 3 different types of triangle: equilateral, isosceles and scalene. Once you have learned the properties of the three types (sides, vertices and angles) you have a sheet showing different types and you have to say which type they are.

Types of triangle

Just so you are aware, you don’t have to download the sheet to write on the sheet itself. As long as you can see the sheet, just write the number of the triangle and the type in your book. Do make sure though, that you date your work in your exercise book and write the name of the activity that you are doing, just as you would at school.

Below is the web address of an animation from BBC Bitesize which goes through the different types with you.

For all you budding rock stars out there, below is a link to a song which will help you remember the different types. I hope you enjoy learning it.

In English we are going to be focusing on the grammar side of things this week.

You should already know the different types of word groups e.g. nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs etc but to make sure we will go over each type and see how they are used.

Remember – NOUN – an object, place or thing. If it is the name of something, then it will be a proper noun and needs a capital letter. Potters Bar, Ladbrooke School, Watkins Rise, Samuel, Janet.

Look at this page on BBC bitesize. Don’t be put off because is says KS1 – as many of you don’t use capital letters for proper nouns in your writing, it will be good revision.

Follow through all of the activities on the page. Once you have done this, choose a paragraph from your reading book and identify the different types of nouns in three columns, like this:

Common nouns

Proper nouns (people)

Proper nouns (Places)
