Welcome back to the Spring Term!
We hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. The children have made an enthusiastic start back to the term and are eager to learn all about our new topic:
'Children of the World'
Welcome to Year 4
Please visit these pages from time to time to see what the children have been up to in class.
Our class reads.
The children have all enjoyed hearing
'Beowulf' and 'the Iron Man.'
We are currently reading 'The boy at the back of the class.'
All of these stories are about a visitor to a new land. This theme will continue to be discussed throughout the term. Just like the Saxons started to migrate to Britain over 1500 years ago, we will be considering why people might move countries today and how it must feel to be a stranger in a new land.
Using counters and Base 10 in maths to help with place value
Playing percussion for music
Painting the Baptism for RE
Looking for Saxon evidence in a place name.
The school are now using the Jigsaw package.
Jigsaw PSHE is a comprehensive and completely original Scheme of Work for the whole Primary School from Foundation through to Year 6. It brings together PSHE Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning. Every week, the class will take part in activities towards completing a puzzle piece. This term, our piece is called 'Being me in my world.'
The class have been playing some great games and thinking about how important it is to be in a team.
Maths - Place Value
We will be learning all about Place Value for the next four weeks.
A digit is a single number like 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9
Where that digit is in a number, gives it a value.
By knowing its place, we know the value of the digit and what the number is.
6345 The value of the 3 = 300 or 3 hundreds
2589 The value of the 8 = 80 or 8 tens
Without Place Value, we would not be able to use numbers!!!
Time to improve our fitness!
What a storm!
What shall we read?
Time to learn.
