L.O. To develop an understanding of division

In this lesson you will be investigating how 2-digit numbers can be divided by 1-digit. To do this you will need to use a place value grid and some place value counters. As you won't have these at home you could draw a place value grid in your book - maybe take a whole page to do this or print out the one I have put below. To help you further why not create your own set of place value counters? Draw around some coins (I suggest a 10p) write 10 in some and 1 in others and then cut them out. You will have your own set to move around to help you. Alternatively, there are some ready-made place value counters that you can print and cut out. For this week's lessons you will just need the sheets with 1s, 10s and 100s.

The other resource you may want to use today to help your understanding is a part-whole model which  you can draw for yourself by drawing around a coin and putting in the amounts.

L.O: To practise editing skills

In this lesson, we will practise a range of editing skills before using them one by one on our own writing. We will focus on editing the climax part of our robin story, and then 'publish' our work. To help you think about varying your sentence openers, our fronted adverbial word mat is below.  

Once you have finished editing your work we would like you to 'publish' it. This means writing the story out again in your neatest, cursive handwriting. If you have a printer, there is lined paper with a robin border for you to publish your work! Mrs Dunnico has been impressed with Year 4's writing so far, can we WOW her further?

L.O To investigate the human features of South America

In the last lesson you investigated the physical features of South America and in this lesson you will investigate the human features of the different countries on the continent. 

Task 1 set on the video is to compare the capital of the UK to that of a South American capital. This may be difficult to do if you are not familiar with London. As an alternative task, we suggest that you use the map from the last lesson and very carefully mark on where each capital city is in each country. If you would prefer to do this on another map, there is one below.

Task 2  is to compare the economies of the countries of South America to those of the UK. To do this draw a table in you book like the one on the sheet below. Write in the first column all the industries you have found out about in South America and in the second column the industries in the UK.  Look at the website below to find out about the main industries in the UK.
