Year 4, 5 and 6 – Friday 24th April

Good morning Years 4, 5 and 6! Happy Friday.

We are sorry that the blog has only just published now; we’re not sure what happened there.

Remember you can join in with Joe Wicks at 9 as usual if you would like to and the sun is shining so maybe you could sit outside and do some of your learning today too!

Here are your tasks for today. There is a short grammar to warm you up ready for your literacy task, a fun maths task and a creative science task.

    I think the dinosaur thinks it’s a game by the grin on his face however the children probably just went on a walk or an adventure.I don’t think the children were running towards something I think they were running away from the snappy headline is ‘a shocking surprise’.
    I have created my own dinosaur called a herbasourus. It is tiny, green and a herbivore.
    I have also done the grammar on a piece of paper.

    • 24th April 2020 at 1:29 pm

      Well done Freya, I like the use of your alliteration in the headline.

    The happy dinosaur !
    yesterday news is alive dinosaur in town. He has been scaring children in school and taking all the food in the Tesco. Although no eggs or flour. Today he ate the electric cable and got electrocuted.
    At lest he lived for 2 days. he was a T-Rex

    • 24th April 2020 at 10:33 am

      Oh no! Not the eggs or flour- that sounds like our world now… without the Dinosaurs! What’s his name? Can you try to join some of your sentences to vary the sentence lengths of your writing.

    The dinosaur is chasing the children off his land and back to school to learn. Right after school the children spent lots of time with the dinosaur until the dinosaur felt uncomfortable and ran away. Later that day when they came to play he wasn’t there, so they started to cry. The next day the dinosaur had a massive break down in the mall and was attacking a 100 year old granny. This all happened yesterday to be clear.

    • 24th April 2020 at 10:34 am

      OOooh- what do you think is going to happen to the dinosaur now? I think he’s scared from what you have said about running away.
      Miss Chambers

      • 24th April 2020 at 6:48 pm

        I think the dinosaur gonna run back to the children in the end.

  • 24th April 2020 at 10:12 am

    my dinosaur’s name ( which I have created ) is can 2460.7 km per hour, it is a herbivore, it is orange and 2 meters tall and 6 meters wide .

    • 24th April 2020 at 12:06 pm

      Hi Sulaiman, I wonder what your dinosaur looks like to have that name? Could you draw a detailed picture of spacesorous and label it? You could also include an interesting fact box.

    Good morning!
    I have created 2 venn diagrams
    Under 14 meters BOTH Weight over 7 tonnes
    Corythosaurus T rex Apatasaurus
    12 metres or over BOTH Carnivore
    Apatasaurus T rex None Outside all rings TriceratopsStegasaurus

    I have created a MAGLADON
    I have sent you a picture
    Weight 150g
    Size 6 inches
    Habitat – marshes, what is now Yorkshire
    Omnivore – scraps of meat and plants
    Facts – it is the smallest dinosaur, it has feathers that are red, it has small speckled eggs. The baby dinosaurs are in the egg for 3 months before hatching. It has small bumps on it’s back to store water

    • 24th April 2020 at 10:36 am

      Morning Olivia, what a lot of work.
      How did you find creating the venn diagrams? I think that they are trickier to do than they sound but you have done a great job- well done.
      The magdalon sounds very sweet- I love the idea of storing water in bumps on its back, I bet this would be really helpful for it to survive.

        Hi I have just realised that the way it has posted is not as I typed it out. I will send you the diagrams

  • 24th April 2020 at 11:07 am

    Breaking news has said that yesterday afternoon at 3.14pm young children and adults in Northampton were horror-struck to see a seventeen foot tall khaki dinosaur with a huge thumping tail. We haven’t found out what species it is yet but we do know that it was in Abington Park. Children and adults were shrieking and yelling for help as they were trying to escape the terrorizing scene. As they got away people thought that they saw a grin on it’s face. Others said it was just because they wanted to believe it was nice. As the dinosaur had finished thumping across the park it went onto the road and was last seen chasing three children. We will update you when we have more information.

    • 24th April 2020 at 1:26 pm

      Wow! What a brilliant introduction, I want to read on!
      Could you think about where you could add commas to some fronted adverbials in your work?

    Good Morning,

    Venn Diagram


    Weight 90,000kg
    Height 16m
    Length 14m
    Habitat Russia, China
    Diet Herbivore
    It’s good at swimming. Really fast and have sharp teeth. Only attacks when others attack and wants to make a lot of friends.He sleeps 1hour in morning, afternoon and evening.

    • 24th April 2020 at 1:27 pm

      Interesting… is the kindosaurus a good or bad predator? I think it might be a good one because it is fast and has sharp teeth to catch its prey.

    , = comma = To add extra information.
    ; = semi-colon = To link separate clauses that are related.
    () = brackets = A pair of these could be used around an embedded clause.
    . = full stop = At the end of a sentence.
    My dad likes raspberry’s, grapes and strawberry’s.
    My kittens are cute; they are allowed outside.
    My mum (who is part of the NHS)is very supportive.
    My next door neighbour is extremely kind.
    I think that the dinosaur is chasing the little kids and the little kids are running away from it as it’s a game. They are running forward to the free space so they can see where they are going and that they can get away from the dinosaur.
    I know that the boy on the left is looking at the boy on the right as if they must run faster and that the girl is just running for her life so she could survive.
    I know that the dinosaur thinks it’s a game on the way of his face it’s sure looks like he is excited to have visitors he could chase.
    Newspaper report
    Today in the zoo there was an escaped dinosaur lurking around the trees. His razer sharp claws were hanging out so please keep all children with you and stay indoors!

    Zoo keepers are trying to track him down. Some people might wonder how he got out. He managed to escape by covering himself in some discarded alcohol hand gel and then wriggled through a little gap in the fence.

    Last seen, in Abington Park playground jumping up and down and playing on the swings on his fat bottom.

    Be aware that he is still hanging around. If you see him you may be in danger. If spotted? Please call the police immediately on 999.

    • 24th April 2020 at 3:40 pm

      Lovely to see a great long post from you Emmie!
      Fab effort remembering those grammatical pieces of punctuation – I would say both a pair of , and () could add extra information.
      Great use of , in a list – remember the plural of strawberry and raspberry are strawberries and raspberries but other than your sentences are great and lovely to hear you talk of your mum working for the NHS. She is one of our heroes!
      I like the use of vocabulary ‘lurking’ and ‘discarded’ well done!

    • 25th April 2020 at 11:48 am

    Talking Trex roaming around the park

    Yesterday at 8:36 a dinosaur broke out of the zoo and started playing with the children. Later that night he broke into the children’s houses to steal their socks. The next morning he was seen sleeping in a nest made of socks the children were angry but he just ate them all.

  • 24th April 2020 at 1:05 pm

    In the picture i think the dinosaur wants to be friends with the children.
    I don’t think the dinosaur is chasing them.
    I think they are running towards there homes.
    An animated film.
    The girl is screaming and running and the two boys are running, but do not look as scared.

    It was the summer of 1985, and there were three children who lived on an island , New Zealand.They were happy playing at the park, when a huge dinosaur started following them around the park.
    They all ran for their lives down the hill.
    We don’t know if it wants to be friends with the children, as the dinosaur has a happy expression on its face.
    They had to run as fast as they could, to their homes.
    They could not stand the horrible noises of the stomping, it was so loud.The children were more than scared.
    Where did the dinosaur come from?

    Who – dinosaur and children.
    What- a dinosaur meeting them at the park.
    Where – in New Zealand.
    When – 1985
    Why – that dinosaurs can be at parks.

    Title: Dino run!

    Caption: The boy on the left is saying “Someone help me!” The girl is saying “I want to go home!” The boy on the right is saying “Help!”

    20 Kilograms
    1 m long and 1m height
    Habitat: In my house.
    Diet: Cake and leafs and pasta.
    Facts: No body has ever seen her before. She is the smallest dinosaur ever. She does not like strangers.She does not have a brother or sister.
    Features: A horn on the top of the head in rainbow. Very long eyelashes!

    I am going to do White Rose maths now.

    • 24th April 2020 at 1:31 pm

      Wow Rose, you have been busy! Well done!
      Remember, with newspapers, most of the reporting is done very soon after although I’m sure you are remembering our newspaper work on Pompeii which happened a long long time ago!
      Your unisoraus sounds very sweet- perhaps you could have a go at drawing a picture of it.

    English :
    I think the dinosaur is just trying to see if he can be their friend . The children might think he is trying to eat them so that’s why they’re running away . I think the children are frightened of the dinosaur . the dinosaur might be feeling confused because they’re running away .

    • 24th April 2020 at 5:54 pm

      I agree, he doesn’t look scary does he but the children do look very scared so who knows what is going on!

  • 24th April 2020 at 1:43 pm

    English :
    I think the children are running away from the dinosaur because they think that the dinosaur is trying to eat them. The dinosaur might be chasing the three children because he wants to be their friends.

    The children might feel frightened because they think the dinosaur is going to eat them. The dinosaur might feel confused because he might not know why they are running away.

      Some excellent work yesterday Rhys. Have you made chicken marsala for your family during lockdown? You’ve included a fronted adverbial and parenthesis in your dinosaur article – well done!
      Mrs Byfield

  • 24th April 2020 at 11:38 pm

    ()- brackets
    to add extra information
    Dan (who is from USA) works for NHS.
    ; Semi-colon
    Is to link clauses that are related

    I think that there running away from a dinosaur in this century. By the look in the dinosaurs face he could just be playing around. The looks like it could be from a storybook. the child in the pink shirt looks like she’s playing tag however the boys look like the facial expression is sayin lets get out of here.
    The random Dinosaur
    Lately, there have been rumours of a dinosaur going around town. Scientist have been using clues to try and find hard evidence that these rumours are true and on May 13th Dan Davidson proved with photo evidence that there is a dinosaur. So Beware.

    • 25th April 2020 at 11:45 am

      Some fantastic work yesterday Tobi. I am so glad you have remembered all this varied punctuation. What punctuation is missing after ‘When Jeff plays football…’. Remember when is a subordinating conjunction.
      Mrs Byfield

    Grammar:- , = comma = A pair of these could be used around an embedded clause
    ; = semi colon = To link separate clauses that are related
    ( ) = brackets = To add extra information
    . = full stop = At the end of a sentence

    RED :- sentences – Comma – During the summer holidays, I helped my mum to make several cakes, pizza and a smoothie.
    Semi colon – In school, I wore a jacket throughout the whole day; it was winter so everything was icy and cold.
    Brackets – My sister always plays with her favourite toy ( lego) so she ended up playing for hours.
    Full stop – Outside in te garden, I started growing vegetables such as green pepper and onions.


    1) I think the children found a place where dinosaurs live. But they did not know that this animal was angry. Now in the picture he is chasing the children like it was a game.
    2) I think it is chasing the kids to scare tem because the children should of not let the dinosaur out of it’s cage.
    3) I think the children are running towards a crowd of people so next everyone will be frightend (of the dinosaur).
    4) I think this came from a fiction book from maybe a library.
    5) From the childrens expressions it looks like all of them all so scared.The boy on the right is looking at the animal so he will get more worried.
