We’ve had a brilliant start to year 4 so far, with both classes working really hard and showing excellent learning behaviours!
In Maths we’ve been focusing on place value, most recently on multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. We are now moving on to rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. Ask your child about high five and scuba dive (our handy methods for rounding)!
In English we’ve been linking to our Stone Age topic and reading Oi Caveboy. We’ve been describing settings and using speech and interesting alternatives to “said” for our reporting clauses.
In the first week we did some great team-building, including building spaghetti and marshmallow towers – messy but fun! Please see the pictures below.
Finally, we have just sent home a letter for our upcoming school trip to see Tom Gates Live at the Theatre Royal. We’re all really looking forward to it!
