This has been yet another fantastic week in Year 4.
We were very lucky this week as each class had the opportunity to contribute to an art project focused on the school values. This has resulted in some beautiful displays that are now proudly on show in our learning street.
This week we were looking at the process of mummification. Each class worked together to mummify an orange; they are safely stored in our cupboards and we will be looking at what happens to these over the coming weeks.
During English this week, we have been exploring the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb and subsequently writing a paragraph for our non-chronological reports. We cannot wait to display these at our Egypt event in a few weeks time.
This week in Maths we have been looking at the place value of 4 digit numbers using this to add, subtract and order numbers.
Next week in Maths we are looking at rounding numbers to 10,100 and 1000.
Our week ended in TastEd; this week we focused on the language of food. It was a particularly adventurous session with radish, red cabbage, spring onion, broccoli, cauliflower and bean sprouts on the menu. We also tried to think of persuasive language to describe and sell foods to our classmates.
All children should now have a reading diary where yourself or your child can tell us about the books they have been reading at home. Each week we ask that these come to school for teachers to look at, on the same day children will also have chance to pick a new book. Book swap days will happen as below:
Amazon – Thursday
Nile – Friday
Thames – Friday
Guided Reading – next week we will be reading Chapter 4 of The Firework Makers Daughter.
