Well, we have had yet another great week in year 4. We are really growing in confidence and I have been so pleased to see so many children really rising to the challenge with their learning.

In Maths, we have been looking at place value in 4-digit numbers. We know how important place value is as their is a big difference between 3 ones and 3 thousands. In class, we have been adding multiples of 10, 100 or 1000 to 4-digit numbers and also comparing numbers, using the <, > or = sign.

In English, we have been looking at the story ‘Lost or Stolen?’. We have been familiarising ourselves with the characters and themes in the text, as well as looking at some really powerful word/phrases used. I have been so impressed to hear that some children have been using these ‘power’ words in their every day conversation now!! We will be exploring the text in more depth next week in preparation for our own Big Write!

In Science, we have been looking at what objects run on electricity. We also looked at how objects are powered-battery or mains? We watched a great little video clip that showed how electricity gets from the power stations to our homes!

In History, we have been making timelines and placing some key historic event on them, related to the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings. We know the importance of chronology in History, and did a great job at ordering the events!

In RE, we have been making links between a story from the bible and how this shows God’s love for us-there were so many stories to choose from, as the whole bible is centred around God’s love for us and his teachings.

The class have been very excited this week as they had their first music lesson with their new instruments (I was asked about 100 times, on Thursday morning, when their music lesson was!). When they have returned their instrument letters, they can then take them home to practice as well!

As you can see, it has been another week full of great learning, and again I have been pleased with the number of children taking quizzes!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend, and come back on Monday, ready for what I KNOW will be another great week!
