Celebration of Work


Year 4 have begun their topic Road Trip USA and have been discovering which countries make up the continent of North America. We are now looking closely at different states in America with a view to creating a fact-file on some of these.  

The class have been enjoying reading The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane and examining the text to discover the characters and the relationship between Abilene and Edward.  Having looked closely at the features of a journalist article we are now writing our own journalistic article which reports Abilene's loss of Edward as he is thrown overboard!

In maths, we have been looking at perimeter before next week moving onto multiplication and division, please help the children become confident with their 6, 7 and 9 timetables.



Year 4 have been busy researching a variety of non-fiction information sources to collect as many facts as possible about ancient Greece.  The children will then be using their findings to create a non-chronological report detailing the aspects they found most interesting.  The children's knowledge of ancient Greece really shone through when we looked closely at the importance of pottery and how this helps archaeologists understand more about the day-to-day life of ancient Greeks.

In maths we have been working on column addition and have had fun using our learning to solve problems in the playground.



Continuing with our topic Gods and Mortals and having explored different Greek Myths, year 4 have been creating a description about our own mythical creatures using a range of figurative devices. We have looked closely at the Olympic Games and made our own information leaflet. In maths we have continued to work on place value and have even been enjoying the last of the summer sun as we took our learning outside to create chalk number lines. We have now moved on to our 6 times table and practice these daily in school.



Year 4 have been exploring ancient and modern Greece through their topic Gods and Mortals. We have been looking at The Trojan Horse and have written a dairy as if we were a soldier inside the Wooden Horse. In Maths we have been working on place value as well as practicing our timetables, beginning at 3 and moving onto 4s - we will be moving through the multiplication tables each week!
