Hemlington Hall Academy

Year 4 – Monday 1st February 2021

Today’s LBQ for grammar is all about ‘articles’.

Articles are words that come before a noun or noun phrase, such as ‘the’, ‘a’ or ‘an’.
But do you know when to use ‘a’ and when to use ‘an’? There is a rule we must follow!

The LBQ can be found here by entering code zm6r.

Today we will be reading the fourth chapter of ‘A Long Walk to Water’. You can choose to read Chapter 4 on your own or listen to Miss Robson reading it here.
You can re-read Chapter 4 here:


Features of a Persuasive Text

Today we will be exploring what the key features of a persuasive text are. Read my WAGOLL (what a good one looks like) and see if you can underline and identify the features shown below. You can choose your own colour key or write what feature you have underlined. You will be looking for:

  • Imperative verbs – these are bossy verbs which tell you what to do.
  • Persuasive adjectives – use these to describe what you will do.
  • Rhetorical questions – ask questions to make a point (normally to agree with you) that the readers are not expected to answer.
  • Fronted adverbials – they go at the front of sentences. They describe the verb. It tells you where, when and how.
  • Repetition – Repetition is repeating yourself deliberately. Repetition is repeating yourself deliberately. Best done for an effect.


Today we will be learning about unit and non-unit fractions in maths. The lesson can be found here. Here is the follow up task. Remember to let a member of the team know if you need any further help!

I have been impressed with those of you that have tried the ‘True or False’ challenge every day as well; here is today’s!


Today we will be learning about insulators, conductors and the materials they are best made out of. You will need a pencil, a piece of paper and a ruler.

Follow along with the video here.  Remember to add your work to your portfolio!

There are some fun activities and extra videos on the BBC Bitesize website too!
