Hello Year 4. I hope you enjoyed finding out about your invention yesterday.

Maths

Your work for today is to multiply and divide by 3, which you should already know, but it never hurts to recap!

Today there are 2 worksheets, one for multiply by 3 and the other for divide by 3.

As mentioned when you did the lesson on the suffixes ate and en, to be a Year 4 writer, you have to be able to use words that have suffixes added, in your writing. Today’s lesson gives you an opportunity to practise this skill.

Topic

In your topic lesson today, you are going to complete a timeline of inventions. You will have worked with timelines before in topic, as they give us an order of things in what is called chronological order. Chronological means a record of things in the time that they happened.

Your partially completed timeline is attached and you will notice that the microwave oven and steam powered car have been added already.

Using the list of inventions that you completed last week, your task is to add some more inventions to this timeline. Take care when adding your arrows as you need to be as accurate as you can. Remember, it is similar to using a blank number line in maths! You need to find the mid-point between each century which will give you the years 1550, 1650, 1750 etc. Between each mid point you need to split the line into 5 equal parts and each part will then give you 1510, 1520, 1530 and so on.

To start with I might draw quite short lines, so you leave room on top and below to add more inventions. In total, you need to have at least 10 inventions added to your timeline. Once you have added them, what do you notice about the dates?
