Year 4 had another busy week with the highlight being their  first swimming session on Wednesday.

In English, the class focused on prepositions as part of their expanded noun phrases before writing some extended paragraphs describing beasts from Cressida Cowell’s book How to train your dragon. They also designed their own magnificent creatures, considering key parts such as the tail, the wings, etc.

In Maths, they moved on to conversion of weight and capacity before reading some scales using a range of increments. The class will move onto fractions next.

In RE, the children retold the Exodus story, identifying main characters and settings, whilst also looking at a timeline with key dates from their History learning and maps to place the story in context.

In Science, the children tested different substances to answer the question: which liquid travels the fastest? They made connections between speed and density, also looking at the particles within the substances. The experiment gave opportunity to the class to consider aspects of a fair test to be kept the same and allowed them to record results independently and draw conclusions from the data collected.

Just a reminder that the Year 4 Mental Health workshops will start next week Thursday.

I hope you have a lovely weekend,

Ms Varga
