Year 4

Daylight saving time. 

Daylight saving time is on Sunday 29th March. We would like you to research what daylight saving time is and write an explanation text about it.

We would like you to explain:

  • what it is
  • what happens during this time
  • how often it occurs through the year
  • if it happens World wide
  • any customs/traditions linked to it

Remember to include all the features of an explanation text. 

 

Share your explanation texts with a member of your family and tweet them so we can share them with you too!

Exercise for fun!

We would like you to create a keep fit routine to 'Dance Monkey'. See how many sets of moves you can get in for example: lunges, waist swivels, arm stretches, star jumps etc. Teach someone your routine and double the fun!

 

Remember to warm up first!

Use the image below as inspiration and do the following activities:

  1. write a setting description
  2. write a first person narrative (a story with you in it)
  3. replicate the image - sketching it using shading techniques
  4. replicate the image - using blocks of colour either pencil crayons or paints

 

In your writing think about including the senses: what can you see, hear, smell, taste, touch. Remember to include all the descriptive techniques that you have been learning: expanded noun phrases, fronted adverbials, adverbial phrases, prepositional phrases, alliteration and similes. Also remember to include correct punctuation:  . ' , ?  !  " "
