Celebrating Our Success

In Year 4, we love it when we can share successes and achievements.

Well done to Aimee and Eva for sharing the power of 'Resilience' in Year 4.

Well done to Eve and Reon for being Class Champions!

 Maths
We have been testing each other on our times tables using a card game called Tackling Tables. One child hides the answer and the other children multiply the 2 numbers on the card and shout out the answer. Whoever shouts out first and gets the answer right, wins the card. The person with the most cards at the end is the winner.

Science

Children have been sorting materials into solids and liquids.

 

In the Summer Term, Year 4 children will be taking the statutory Multiplication Tables Check (MTC).
This check involves the children answering 25 time tables facts using a computer program. The children will have 6 seconds to answer each fact. In order to prepare the children for this we have added a link below which will support their multiplication knowledge. The 'Sound Check'section is very similar to the check that the children will be completing.

 English

Our focus text this half term is 'The Firework-Maker's Daughter' by Philip Pullman. The children have already written a letter from the viewpoint of the main character, Lila and have used their inference skills during Guided Reading. The children have just written a non-chronological report about elephants as one of the characters is a white elephant that can talk!

'The Wonder of Water'.

The children have begun their journey by developing their geographical skills and knowledge of the United Kingdom. Here they are naming and locating the counties of England.

Children used their knowledge of co-ordinates to find letters around the school which gave them the name of a river in the UK. The children used maps and fieldwork skills to complete this task.

The children have been using atlases to locate cities in the UK. They then used their previous knowledge of counties to name the county some of the cities are situated in.
