It has been another busy and interesting week in Year 4.

In Maths, the children extended their understanding of the long division through open ended problem solving activities whilst in English, they have written their final, extended, pieces in our playscripts unit. In RE, the class learnt about Shavu’ot, an ancient Jewish festival which they will link with Pentecost later in the term. In Science, the children read Topical Science articles whilst also completing their bedside lamps. At the moment we are experiencing some difficulties with our circuits, so I apologise in advance if the lamps will need some further support at home.

In History, the children drew conclusions of Tudor times using different portraits of Henry VIII, whilst in Computing they used new formulae to calculate mean average and sum in Spreadsheets whilst also formatting their graphs from the previous week. In PE, the children further consolidated their bawling, fielding and batting skills by playing short cricket games. In Art, the class used their drawing and shading skills to create Tudor themed symmetry portraits. On Wednesday, the class celebrated National Numeracy Day by participating in a Guinness World Record attempt of the highest number of participant in a live multiplication recital as well as completing a budgeting exercise (a challenge of surviving one day on £20 with NO support from home at all). Fantastic conversation about needs and wants!

Next week, the children will participate in a Multiplication Table Check ‘simulation’ to gain some practice before the actual event next month. The simulation will involve practicing logging on and running the test -all in a separate room in groups of 5. The purpose of this simulation is to allow the children to experience exam settings and to eliminate stress or anxiety so on the day, they be familiar with the surroundings and feel confident.

I wish you a lovely weekend,

Ms Varga
