LO: To plan our foreshadowing

Yesterday we looked at what foreshadowing is and how it is used, today we will be seeing how this links to our model text and how it fits into our own story!

  1. Read the document to see how your paragraphs will contain foreshadowing and the events.
  2. After getting comfortable in your favourite room, pick a chore from the list, or something you don’t like doing when helping out at home…
  3. Think about how the magic could go wrong, use the images and videos as inspiration for these wacky happenings!
  4. Write up and illustrate your ideas in the planning format- it doesn’t need to be too in depth, just outline the suggestion of the task, the wish that goes wrong, and how it could be fixed.

We are really excited to see the ridiculous nonsense that you come up with! Please remember that it’s happening within YOUR HOME, the one you are sat in right now, so it needs to be sort of realistic...

LO: To be an explorer!

Guided Reading

It’s grey and raining outside but we can still go exploring!

“You’re right to be afraid, be brave anyway…” from Katherine Rundell’s The Explorer.

(watch this clip first approx. 1 minute)

In this chapter, many famous rain forest explorers are mentioned!

  • Can you find their names?
  • There is clue in this chapter roughly when this book is set, can you find it?
  • Can you think of three thoughtful questions you would ask one of these brave expeditioners?

A man called Hiram Bingham is mentioned, he discovered Machu Pichu in Peru, in 1911.  Here is some information about this famous world heritage site-

Friday 19th June - French 


Year 4 French - Summer Term Week 8

Musical Instruments – part 2


Well done to everyone that sent in their French work last week; I even had videos of you playing your musical instruments at home. if you play a musical instrument and would like to feature on distance learning French page, please do drop me an email.


You are all getting to grips with the concept of masculine and feminine nouns in French. It is also fabulous to see you copying French vocabulary with great accuracy including all those tricky accents.


I understand how hard it must be trying to learn a new language without your teacher in front of you to explain things but, I am incredibly proud of every single one of you for using your growth mind set and having a go.


Last week, you may have noticed that all the instruments you learnt were feminine nouns. The word for ‘the’ was ‘la’. This week’s focus will be on masculine nouns so ‘the’ is ‘le’.


The remote lesson will follow the same format as usual; begin by watching the PowerPoint presentation, then complete the worksheet.


I have created some games for you to play in the ‘games’ folder. It is a great way for you to consolidate your vocabulary learning.


Don’t forget to finish by colouring in your language cloud and send me a photo of your chosen worksheet (there are 3 different levels) with your language cloud progress page. 


Missing you all very much, 

Madame Hemsworth
