Class 4

Welcome to Class 4!

Welcome back Year 4!

 

I trust you have all had a wonderful break and are now ready and eager to learn. In English this term, we will be focussing on the classic novel, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. For a more detailed look at the curriculum, please see the attached Curriculum Overview. The timetable and homework days will remain the same, however, please note that spellings and times tables tests will now take place on a Friday.

 

May I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all children and parents for their continued effort and support and remind you that my door is always open.

 

I look forward to many happy and productive lessons!

 

Mrs Hughes

Fun with Fractions - February 2019

We used lego to find equivalent fractions.  Once we had mastered this, we tested our knowledge using cake.  What a fun morning!

In maths, we have been looking at more exciting ways to learn our times tables. We evented a game called ‘Bunny Maths’ and had great fun hopping around the classroom, collecting bundles of carrots. We challenged ourselves to see how many questions we could answer in 1 minute.

We have also been looking at more complicated multiplication. In Year 4, we think it is very important to be able to explain our thinking, so Mrs Hughes decided to it was time to take a back seat and let the class do the teaching! Everyone stepped up to the challenge and did an amazing job! Well done, Year 4!

Friendship Advertisements

 

During our first week, we talked about the characteristics that make a good friend. We used our ideas to create a friendship advertisement. Can you work out which friend is which?

In Maths, we have been looking at place value of 4 digits numbers. We also used our class novel, The Iron Man, to fit in some extra measuring skills. We estimated that we could fit approximately 300 of us in the same space as the Iron Man's head, now, that's impressive!

Discovery of dragon eggs!

Excitement continued today when we received a letter from the Museum of Strange Objects, asking us to keep a look out for dragon eggs. On our patrols around the school, to our amazement, we found not just one, not two, not three, but FOUR giant ones scattered around the playground. We used our senses to examine these closely and will be reporting back to the Museum of Strange Objects when we have completed our investigations. What an egg-citing day!

Class 4 Stone Age Day

 

Class 5 and Class 4 went to Upper Sitch Private Wood in Staffordshire to find out more about the Stone Age. Dan and Naomi told us all about their experiences living as Stone Age people in America. During the afternoon we made Stone Age tools and used natural materials to create our own cave art.
