Year 4 have had a fantastic start to the year, showing brilliant curiosity in their learning.
In English, we have been busy writing our autobiographies for the school time capsule. We have also been reading 'The Lost Happy Endings' by Carol Ann Duffy. The children have been able to identify the strong description used in the book and have been able to use it to inspire their descriptive writing.
In Maths, we have been solving addition and subtraction problems, ordering and comparing numbers and completing different activities involving our times tables.
Swimming is on Monday and P.E is on Friday for Year 4.
Our Kindness Tree
The children explored the meaning of 'kindness' and discussed different ways to show/give kindness. We then created a kindness wall where the children wrote down their tips for display. Each week, the children will pick a class name out of a bag and write a compliment about that person. Then each child will read their kind compliment and put it on the tree.
Black History Month:
For Black History Month, Year 4 has been researching information about the athlete Mo Farah. They worked in groups to use laptops to collect their information. They found out about his childhood, junior career, senior career and personal life/hobbies. The children then used their research to create fact files.
