This week in year 4 the children have really impressed us with all their hard work.
In English the children edited and redrafted their non-chronological reports on Julius Caesar. They look amazing; the layout, the handwriting, the organisation of information has blown us away. They are hopefully as proud of themselves as we are of them.
In maths we have continued with addition and subtraction but are now using our learnt methods in multi-step problems. The children have had to understand the problem, make a plan and then carry out the plan to solve the problem. We’ve also looked how to use bar models to support our understanding.
In one of the PE lessons this week the children worked really hard on their own personal strength , they carried out a range of sit ups, push ups, bridges and squats. They listened carefully and carried these out with amazing control.
In science the children recapped some prior learning from year 2 with food chains, but we have introduced some new language for them to use. Ask your children what a detritivore is? The clue is it’s an animals diet.
I know the week will end on a high with the cinema afternoon.
Have an amazing weekend all,
