Year 4 Home Learning - Monday 8thJune 2020 (Blog 2)


Hello! In this blog you will find your maths and RE tasks for Monday. We will post our next blog on Wednesday. 

Maths Task:

Explore the different types of 3D shapes that exist and their structures - from flat and curved surfaces, straight and curved edges, to vectors (corners). Watch some cool videos and the PowerPoint to research the properties of cuboids, cylinders and spheres to more complex 3D shapes such as tetrahedrons, hexagonal prisms and octahedrons. 

What is the definition of 3D shapes?

In mathematical terms, a 3D shape has three dimensions. The D in '3D' stands for dimensional. In a world with three dimensions, you can travel forwards, backwards, right, left and even up and down. The ability to travel up to space and back down differentiates 3D from 2D. The world you live in is all 3D. 

Please complete a worksheet attached to this blog.


Topic Task (RE): 

Beliefs and cultures are important to all of us. An investigation into the practices and beliefs of over one billion people in the world, the faith of Muslims - Islam. 

The Five Pillars of Islam are an important part of Muslim life. They are five things that a Muslim must do  so they can live a good and responsible life. They include: 

  • The declaration of faith (Shahada)
  • Praying five times a day (Salat)
  • Giving money to charity (Zakah)
  •  Fasting during the month of Ramadan (Sawm)
  • A pilgrimage to Makkah at least once in a lifetime (Hajj)

Please read the PowerPoint and complete one of the worksheets.
