The children in Year 4 this week spent some times outdoors identifying plant life growing on our school grounds. They used terminology to categorise their findings such as stem, leaf, petal, flower, fruit, bark, twig, etc. In Maths, the class finished their short unit of time, calculating unknown start and finish times using duration and converting between units of time. Later in the week, they moved on to identifying, comparing and ordering angles using benchmarks, such as right angles. In English, they have written their engaging final pieces in their explanation text unit, giving details about their ‘crazy inventions’. They edited their writings and published them in neat. In RE, we looked at the characters and the settings of the Good Samaritan story, using maps and historical details about people from that era. In art, the class created illustrations to go with our class story, Stitch Head, using pastel crayons and paint. We played rounders in PE. In History, the children looked at how life was different in Tudor times depending on social class and extended that learning by looking at everyday activities, fashion, food, education, etc.
A letter was sent home yesterday about next week’s class trip and the event was also set up on SchoolComms, so please make sure to give consent online and decide on lunch options as soon as possible. Thank you!
