Welcome back Year 4!

What a fantastic first week back we have had. It has been wonderful welcoming you all back into class this week.

We started our week off by getting to know our classroom and our learning for this term. We learnt where to find our resources and what to expect from Y4 learning.

We dived straight in with our Maths learning this week. Across the week, we have learnt about representing and partitioning numbers to 1000, drawing number lines in intervals of 100s and 1000s, counting in 1000s and understanding the values of 4-digit numbers!

We have started our first Writing unit this week. We arrived in our classroom to find a camera, binoculars, a hammer, some nails, glasses, some blueprints and a pencil and paper. This started us thinking about why they were here, who they could belong to and why the items were linked. We enjoyed exploring our ideas and writing some predictions. We have also recapped our Y3 learning of fronted adverbials.

In our Reading lessons this week, we have enjoyed choosing our Big Cat books and our challenge books and beginning to read both.

To interest us into our History topic this week, we enjoyed an art activity. We listened to the story – Hiccup: The Viking who was Seasick. From this, we thought about the most vicious Vikings. We looked at pictures and drawing of Vikings from books and online, and considered the characteristics of a fierce Viking. The children then began sketching their ideas. Thinking carefully about drawing the facial features in the most frightening way. Once we had designed our Vikings through our sketching, it was time for the fun part... clay! We created our Viking faces using clay and even if we do say so ourselves, they look amazing. Don't believe us? Take a look!

On our Friday afternoon this week, we enjoyed our first Heartsmart lesson. We focused on learning ways we can show love to ourselves and others. 'Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it'. Proverbs 4:23

We also enjoyed our first History lesson. We thought about what we already knew of the Vikings and recorded this in our books. Then, we completed a timeline of History – focusing on all of the periods of time that we have learnt about so far. Once we had an understanding of when the Vikings were around, we started to explore where they came from!

This week's homework is Maths.co.uk. All homework log ins have been stuck in our reading diaries.

I have been amazed by how wonderfully you have all settled into class and impressed me with your interest, listening and team work! Keep up the fantastic work Y4.

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the sunshine!
