Welcome To Year 4!
With Mr Purewal, Mrs Ayley and Mrs Harvey
During this half-term we have been learning about crime and punishment through the Roman, Anglo-Saxon, Tudor and Victorian periods.
In our english work the children have recently completed a recount of one of Rudyard Kiplings just so stories 'How the rhinoceros got his skin'. We have now started a new book called 'The Sheep Pig'. The children will be using their reading and comprehension skills to gain a better understanding of the book so they can enhance their vocabulary, recall events, predict what could happen next and write diary entries.
We have been very busy in our maths lessons covering place value, adding and subtracting mentally, one step and two step word problems, the 6x and 9x table and we are moving onto fractions.
In science we have been looking at what makes a living thing. Children have been cateogrising living and non-living things, looking at animals characteristics, creating their own classification keys and we will be soon be learning about the human body!
Mr Bromley has been working the children very hard in PE lessons and it is evident they are all improving their co-ordination, speed, agility and spatial awareness. The sports they are currently doing are rugby and football.
In computing we have been learning about how to stay safe when online, the importance of telling parents, teachers and adults which you can trust about anything that doesn't look or feel right when acessing computers, games consoles, tablets and phones.
