As another week has flown by, here’s what we’ve been up….

In Maths, we have been finding the area of shapes. We found a pattern when we were looking at the area of a rectangle or square-we just need to multiply the length by the height!

In English, we have been writing Haiku poems. Haiku poems have very strict rules…they only have three lines and 17 syllables! The first and last line have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7…try and write your own at home!

In Science, we have been classifying animals. We made information leaflets all about different animals groups…what makes a bird a bird, or a mammal a mammal? We found it really interesting to look at the variation of animals within their groups (reptiles, amphibians, birds, mammals, insects and fish). We also looked at vertebrates/invertebrates and cold/warm blooded animals.

In RE, we have been looking at the Sacrament of Baptism. We looked at the different religious symbols in Baptism and also why we are baptised, what does it mean?


This week’s Golden Award went to Reuben for the amazing progress he has made in year 4-and this is all down to his hard work and determination!

This week’s Writing Award went to Audrey for her amazing Haiku poems. She managed to create such vivid images in so little words.
