In English, we have been learning about fronted adverbials and how we can use fronted adverbials to vary our sentences; we also learnt about subordinating conjunctions and how we can use them to combine two clauses - and even use them as adverbials, linking to our learning from Monday. We ended the week by reading a little more of our story 'The Tin Forest' and took part in an Art lesson to show a scene from the story.
In Maths, we learnt how to use improper fractions and convert improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa. This weeks Maths was tricky but Year 4 all worked super hard and have done us all proud!
We have learnt about the /l/ sound in phonics this week; In Geography, we used Google Maps to locate Brazil, Canada, Russia and Peru and then practised our researching skills to find out facts about those countries; we used Purple Mash to practice 2Logo; in Ukelele, we are still learning 'Best Day of my Life' and are really enjoying it - next week we learn a new song; In RE, we learnt about the Easter story and focused on the passover and why Judas betrayed Jesus; In Science, we continued learning about Electricity and made simple circuits to test different materials to see whether they were conductors or insulators - we learnt loads in that lesson. We ended our week learning about change and what happens to our bodies in PSHE.
