Class News!

Term 1 - Week 6:

Year 4 have been journalists this week and have been completely immersed in writing eye-catching headlines and really fantastic news reports. They have worked really hard on this and should be really proud!

In maths we have been comparing and ordering numbers, looking as the language of 'ascending' and 'descending'.

In PE they have continued to work on their athletic skills, this week exploring endurance in running. 

 

Term 1 - Week 5:

This week the children have been investigating the story of Perseus and the Gorgon Medusa to prepare their newspaper report on the gory events. In Science they have been learning about teeth and made incredible models, thinking about the different shapes of their teeth. In Maths, they have continued develop their understanding of partitioning and counting in 1000s. In Art they made really impressive busts of Zeus from clay, well done Year 4! A big thank you also goes out to all the children and parents who have been working hard at home to make lots of delicious apple pies and crumbles and creating fact files all about Greece.

Term 1 - Week 3:

Another busy week has flown by for Year 4!

The children have been identifying numbers on a number line and applying this knowledge of place value to round numbers to 10 and 100. They have also been absolutely hooked on getting into their Ancient Greek 'slave' characters and preparing to write their letters on Monday. They have been exploring ways to draw our readers in describing the 5 senses in their writing. They have also practised athletic skills in PE and considered why God wants us to explore the world through science in RE.

Term 1 - Week 2:

This week the children have got stuck into their Gods and Mortals topic by exploring the story of Persephone and the Pomegranate and then having a go at writing their own Greek myths. We've also taken our lessons outdoors when we can including acting out scenarios in PSHCE and locating cities within the UK in geography. The children have worked really hard in maths as they revise place value and then apply this understanding to solve problems. It's been a great week, well done Year 4!

Miss Hannon :)

 

Term 1 - Week 1:

Year 4 have been full of smiles and energy this week and it was so wonderful to welcome them all back to school!

This week they made a brilliant start on number and place value in Maths and in English they were inspired by the Word Collector, which the children loved. We have started our own word collection and are determined to use these and many more wonderful words to inspire our writing throughout the year! The children used dictionaries to find their meanings and determine whether they were nouns, verbs or adjectives.

Year 4 have also filled an art gallery with absolutely beautiful portraits of each other and have also been thinking about what they would like to achieve by the end of the year. Year 4 were also introduced to their history and geography theme 'Gods and Mortals' and are really excited to learn more about the Ancient Greeks! This theme will also inspire our English lessons, this week we will learn about what it was like to be a slave in Ancient Greece and write a letter, explaining we have been captured!
