This week in Year 4, the children completed their final narratives, based on our class book, ‘Ice Palace’, retelling a particular scene from a different character’s point of view. I am very pleased with their efforts; we have some beautiful descriptions and stories that create an atmosphere.
In Maths, we further consolidated calculating fractions of quantities; representing problems using bar models and solving missing number fraction problems. Next week, we are moving on to adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator beyond 1 whole.
In Science, we welcomed Mrs Ennis, who gave us a talk about how she is using Science in her job, before moving on to our current topic ‘States of Matter’. We carried out some practical investigations to identify melting points and used our data to present it on a graph.
We also participated in a music assembly, accompanied by year 5, where we were introduced to some of the services provided by the Hertfordshire Music Centre, before doing some singing and dancing. Very enjoyable session!
The children also practiced their hymns both in class and in church for the Way of the Cross Service which is on Tuesday 28th March at 7pm at Our Lady and St Vincent’s Church.
Next Monday, we are planning to take the children on a walk and will require them to bring a change of footwear for this (they may get muddy!) and their coat.
