This week in Year 4, the children revised their arithmetic learning focusing on number and the 4 calculations, whilst in English, we centered our learning around character description and inference when looking at further chapters from our class book, Stitch Head.

In RE, the class identified characteristics and qualities of Jesus using Gospel Stories from the Bible before reflecting on their own qualities as disciples. In PE, they carried on with their unit of tennis with Mr Mills, whilst in Science they looked at habitats and made connections between diets and vertebrate groups.

In D&T, the children painted their main structures before cutting and adding any other parts to their torches. Next week, we will focus on putting our simple series circuits together.

I am looking forward to seeing you all next week for our last parent consultation sessions; please make sure to book an appointment for Tuesday or Thursday afternoon. Thursday’s meetings will be held in class due to the school being used as a polling station.

Friday, 5th July is whole school photos!

I wish you a lovely weekend,

Ms Varga

English The children have been learning about the ‘Mad Professor Erasmus’ in class, who is one of the main characters in our class book, Stitch Head.

This week, I would like the children to come up with a ‘design’ for a monster that would fit into the already large group of monsters living in Castle Grotteskew. The Professor is famous for using ‘spare’ parts and putting them together often quite ‘crudely’.

Create an A4 poster using any media to draw your monster, then add a vocabulary bank around it that you will be able to use.

Think about the structure we use in class. First choose 8-10 good nouns. Add an adjective to each of them, as a second step. Sort out the prepositional phrase to elevate them to an expanded noun phrase, telling the reader where these parts are or what is special about them. Then think about how you could add a few examples of personification, metaphor or simile.

This home learning is a plan for a later writing piece. I am not expecting paragraphs. Only a detailed picture, with bullet points of words/phrases to use in class.
