Celebration of Work

13/10/2017 - Year 4 are continuing to work extremely hard. In English we have been writing a set of instructions. Firstly, we had a paper aeroplane making competition, where we had to write instructions on how to make one. We then used our PE lesson to understand the rules of football, then used our writing skills to produce a concise set of instructions detailing how to play the sport.

In Maths, we have been continuing to solve problems using addition and subtraction.  We learnt a 'Subtraction Poem', which has been helpful during some tricky calculations.

We are very excited about our Ancient Greek trip, especially the opportunity to dress up, and have been learning about the Athenians and the Spartans to prepare ourselves. We also re-enacted the Battle of Marathon on the playground, which was great fun.

  

 

 

29/09/2017 - We are working hard in Year 4. In English we have been developing our descriptive writing skills. We have continued to focus on using a variety of sentence starters to ensure our writing shows sophistication, and have written a character from our class reading book – Stig of the Dump.

In Maths, we have been using addition and subtraction to solve problems. We have been learning how to exchange.

Our topic this term is Ancient Greeks, and we have been using our Art lessons to produce some impressive Greek art. We are also looking forward to our Class Trip to The Museum of Kent Life for a Greek Day in a few weeks.

 

15/09/2017 - Year 4 have made a fantastic start to the new year. We have been working very hard in our English lessons. We have written a powerful description, using a deserted beach scene as our inspiration, and have been trying really hard to use a variety of sentence starters.

In Maths we have been developing our place value knowledge, to help us build a sound base for all our number work throughout Year 4.

We are enjoying our P.E lessons, where we are developing our ball skills. So far we have been concentrating on throwing and catching.

  

We are also excited to begin our new topic – Ancient Greece.
