We have had a wonderful week in Year 4 and have enjoyed the start of the sunny weather. We have even managed to take some of our learning outside which has been lovely.

In Maths, we have been learning about fractions, focusing on conveying between mixed number and improper fractions. We have been using lots of visual representations to help us explore these concepts. For additional practice please find this weeks learning here: Summer 2 Week 3 Maths Mixed number and improper fractions.

In English, we have been using our class book of Arthur and the Golden Rope to explore narrative structure. We started the week by story mapping the story and adding actions. We then looked at different ways we could subvert the ending. We also had the opportunity to attendĀ  live writing workshop from the comfort of our own classrooms! In Guided Reading, we have been looking at the use of different vocabulary and the impact this has on the reader. For additional writing practice see attachment here: Blog Writing Summer 2 Week 3

In Science, we have been looking at different ways we can classify different animals. After exploring the different features of different living things in our local area we created our own classification systems.

In PRE, we have been exploring ‘ What makes a good life’. We have been looking at how Buddhists ma answer this questions and linking it to the ‘Eight fold noble path’. It has been fantastic to hear the rich discussion coming from our classrooms. In PSHE, we have been exploring healthy choices.

 

Next week:

In Maths, we are are continuing looking at fractions. After consolidating our previous fraction knowledge, we are going to look at equalivilant fractions.

In English, we are going to start writing our own stories based on our class book. In Guided Reading, we will be reading Chapter 13-15 of Cogheart.
