Happy Birthday Mary!
During a busy week in Year 4, the children revised their key writing tools such as adverbs, conjunctions and noun phrases in English. We put emphasis on handwriting and introduced the first set of spelling words.
In Maths, we introduced Roman numerals and looked at the history of this ancient number system. We put our learning into action by writing the date using Roman numerals, as well, which we will carry on doing in the future. We also introduced Place Value as our first topic beside completing mental fluency tasks and multiplication practice.
In Science, we looked at facts the children already knew about healthy eating, the health of our teeth and digestion whilst in Geography, they started locating megacities around the world, using atlases and satellite pictures.
In PE, we played invasion games and in Art we used different media to create beautiful birthday cards for Mary.
The children really enjoyed this Wednesday’s celebration and completed a lovely piece of learning comparing the qualities of Mary to other contemporary women who changed the world. They also took part in a beautiful class Act of Worship launching the ‘Year of Growth’.
Well done children for a great start to the year!
I am looking forward to see you all for Monday’s ‘Meet the Teacher’ session starting at 2.30pm in the hall!
