Year 4 News!

Home » News » Year 4 News!

Within English this week we have continued on our path to become fantastic journalists. We re-enacted the event we were going to write about to give us a better understanding of the story. Following this, we thought about how we could use questions to develop an understanding of the events that took place and used these to interview Miss Holland (an eyewitness of the ordeal). We have now written our own news articles!

In Maths this week we have completed our place value unit of work. We started to week by learning about negative numbers using number lines. We have recapped our understanding of rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000 to make sure we have a great understanding. Finally, we finished by learning about how to plot very large numbers on number lines with different scales and using our knowledge of scales to help estimate the missing amount. In our new year 4 class, we are also working really hard to improve our knowledge of times tables. Today we have started to learn a song to help us remember our 6 times tables — it's extremely fast but we gave it a great go.

In RE this week we explored how the story of the 'Feeding of the 5000' represents Good News. We discussed what a miracle was and what miracle we thought the story had it in.

In Geography we started by learning the eight cardinal points of a compass. We played a game in which the children had to stand at different compass points in the room. To gain an understanding of where the children thought Wybunbury was on a map of the UK we played a game of pin the sticker on Wybunbury. We then started to use our knowledge of compass points and directions to create a treasure map and give our friends instructions of how to find the treasure.

In History, we continued to learn about the earliest locomotives. It was a huge coincidence that on the news this week they have been discussing the return of Stephson's rockets (a winner of the rainhill trials) to a Manchester museum. We took the opportunity to have a read of the news article.

We have also spent some time this week practising for our upcoming Harvest service. The singing is beautiful and everyone has worked really hard to learn their lines. We look forward to seeing it next week.

The children will come home today with some news of a sponsored reading for this term. Please take a look at our news update and I am sure the children will be able to tell you lots about what they need to do.

It has been another lovely week in Year 4 and we look forward to seeing what we have in store next week!
