Year 4 News!

Home » News » Year 4 News!

Our first full week in Year 4 is complete! This week we became singers, computer experts and fantastic mathematicians.

In English this week, we completed our letters to Mr and Mrs Dursley — they are now aware why a strange baby boy has been placed on their doorstep! We then moved on to developing our use of vocabulary and in particular, our use of adjectives. We explored different words we could use to describe some strange objects which were placed on our table. This then led us on nicely to think about adjectives we could use to describe our wands. We will use all of this knowledge to help us write a description of our wands at the beginning of next week.

In Maths we continued our place value unit of work. This week we recapped how to round to the nearest 10 and 100. We focused on recognising the Thousands, Hundreds, Tens and Units within a number and using these to help us understand which numbers change. This then led us on to counting in 1000s. We used our knowledge of thousand digits to add more on. After this, we moved on to partitioning numbers based on their digits. We used Diene Blocks to represent how many thousands, hundreds, tens and units we had in each number and also learnt how to use our 'partitioning bubbles'.

Our spellings this week have focused on words ending in 'sure'. On Monday we spent a large amount of time in the afternoon learning ways to practice the spelling and played some games to help us learn. Throughout the week we also completed word searches and handwriting tasks to help us learn our spellings. Friday, we had our spelling test.

On Monday we also had the opportunity to use the iPads. The children used the app known as code studio to practice coding some complex algorithms.

On Tuesday afternoon we had our first RE lesson which focused on the topic of Good News. The children listened to and watched the story of 'The Centurions Servant'. We discussed how this story represents Good News and re-enacted the story in our own role play. Everyone was so confident and had a great understanding of the story. We then finished off the afternoon learning more of our songs in preparation for young voices. Our Moana medley is coming along beautifully and Mrs Chesters even came in for a sneak preview!

On Wednesday we dedicated the afternoon to Art and DT. Small groups of us worked together to add detail and colour to our magical wands. The rest of the class continued with their Harry Potter front covers which are being completed in the style of George Seurat. They are still a work in progress as we have come to realise this technique is rather time consuming (but remember some of Seurat's work took 2 years -so we aren't doing too badly!)

On Thursday we had our usual PE lesson and were focusing on learning the techniques of hockey.

Finally, on Friday we had a special visitor! We had another afternoon of computing this week led by Mr Griffith from High-Impact! We learnt about how to use a programme called Textease to create a branching database. We started by downloading pictures from the internet of Harry Potter characters. We were then shown how to add these into our database alongside questions. We were all then able to produce a branching database which can be played to find the answer. It was fantastic and linked well to our Harry Potter theme!

Another busy week complete. Enjoy your weekend!
