Week ending 18.10.19
This week in maths we’ve been subtracting numbers up to 4 figures with exchanging, using manipulatives and expressing the calculations in different forms.
In English we’ve finished our description of an episode in Arthur’s journey. We have started an entry in his journal of one of his final challenges needed to gain the Golden Rope necessary to save his village.
For our comprehension I insisted we give all our answers as full sentences which caught a fair few out, but the children must not be discouraged. This was a valuable lesson in preparation for SATs in a few years.
In SPaG we’ve worked at prepositions and have just started phrases and clauses.
In RE we been looking more deeply at the Ten Commandments, comparing it to the instructions we needed as we’ve moved around the class blindfolded.
In science we’ve looked at evaporation and condensation, just touching on the water cycle.
Some of the children have been looking a little peaky with colds, but that hasn’t stopped them giving their all in this last week of term. They richly deserve a good break – without any homework apart from the Home Learning Menu.
Thank you Year 4 for a splendid first term.

Here is the reading menu for this term. They are for the children to work on at home and in school. If they complete a line or four corners, they get a bookmark/sticker and once they complete a full house they get to choose a book from Mrs Hard's special box. We ask parents to sign to show that they have completed the challenge.
We hope to encourage a wide reading diet and to support the children in reading daily and developing a good stamina for reading in order to complete the whole menu by Christmas.
