Welcome back Year 4. In Maths, we have been using the grid method to multiply two numbers together. In English, we looked at the features of an explanation text ready to write our own about the plastic problem in the ocean that links to our novel, Song of the Dolphin Boy. In RE, we started our topic 'Community' and explored the meaning of community and responsibility. We explained the key roles of people within our community. In Context, started our new topic 'A Child of the 30's'. We start by focusing on the Tudors and we created a comic strip about the battle.
Lastly, as you can see from the photos, Group A had lots of fun in their first Forest Schools session. It is Group B's turn next week.
In RE, we completed our topic of Advent and the children were able to explain the reasons for the symbols of Advent. In Context, we created a flowchart algorithm to show how to test if a material is a conductor. We then wrote our own algorithm using repetition and selection. Finally, we had some Christmas fun and games to end a very busy term where the children worked very hard!
In English, we have been learning about time and causal conjunctions. We also learned about fronted adverbials. We have suggested how our feelings towards Mr McFee have changed throughout our novel, 'Song of the Dolphin Boy'. In Maths, we learned about tenths and recorded them as a fraction and a decimal. We moved on to recognising different fractions. In RE, we wrote a letter thanking God for bringing Jesus into the world. We suggested ways we should love one another. In Context, we researched about climate changes and identified the causes. We also complete a science experiment to see whether custard is a solid or a liquid?
In English, we have continued reading 'Song of the Dolphin Boy' by Elizabeth Laird and learned how to punctuate speech correctly. In Maths, we finished our symmetry work and moved on to doubling and halving 3-digit numbers. In RE, we finished our Confirmation topic by writing a poem where the children explained what 'Love' means to them. In Context, we used measuring skills to calculate the distance between our school and recycling centres in South Wales. We also used our IT skills to create different types of graphs on Google Sheets to show total waste.
