Year 4 class blog!
This half term, Class 4 have been learning all about Great Britain. We have spent time finding out about rivers, coasts, maps and landmarks in the UK and comparing some towns and areas to Europe. We have also been reading ‘Why the Whales came’ by Michael Morpurgo.
Last week we had an amazing afternoon learning all about birds of prey. We got to have our photos taken holding owls and hawks!
Our next short topic up to Easter is Chocolate. We will be spending time looking at the origins of chocolate and using it to design products and as a writing stimulus. We will also be learning how to tell the time and how to make our writing more interesting in the run up to Easter writing stories about chocolate.
After Easter, in Numeracy we will be looking at graphs and statistics and also developing our skills of solving word based problems. In Literacy, we will be reading George’s Marvellous Medicine and using the book to improve our writing skills further. Our topic work after Easter will be ‘Islands’. We will be learning about different countries in the world and making comparisons of them.
Well done to the children who consistently do their homework and bring it on time. Homework is given out every WEDNESDAY and should be handed in the following MONDAY. A lot of the homework set is now done through Mathletics. The tasks should be done every week and will help to consolidate work done in class and improve arithmetic and problem solving skills. It is important that these are completed.
PE days are TUESDAYS AND FRIDAYS. Please ensure kits are in school on these days.
