Another amazing week of learning has taken place in Year 4!

In our Writing lessons this week, we have enjoyed analysing the text and planning our own narrative. We have explored the tension created within the text writing our own short tension narrative. We used ideas from the text to support our ideas. We then went on to think about how our characters are feeling in different parts of the text using our 'role on the wall' task. This enabled us to think about what the characters felt and were experiencing. We have then moved on to understand the structure of a tension narrative. We wrote our own plans and have carefully focused on the Writer's knowledge we will be using.

Throughout Maths this week, we have continued to develop our understanding. We have focused on gaining a clear understanding of finding multiples between numbers. We then went on to write numbers to 10,000 on numberlines with different intervals. Then moving on to comparing numbers up to 10,000 using our knowledge of the values of each digit. We have ended our week by learning about Roman numerals.

In our Reading comprehension lessons this week, we have enjoyed reading about the Vikings – learning about the life of men and women and how they enjoyed music and poetry.

We have been practising our handwriting skills using our Y3/4 common misconception words this week.

In our Computing lessons this week, we have enjoyed our first digital literacy lesson. We have thought about the responsibility we have online to be a digital citizen. We learnt about rings of responsibility. We thought about how we are responsible online. This reaches from responsibility for ourselves, our community and the world.

Within our Heartsmart lesson, we considered who we trust and why. We listened to the story of the Wily Wolf. We listened to the story and thought about how we find someone to trust and the importance of making sure you know someone properly before sharing your information with them. As part of our wellbeing sessions, we thought about the things that 'bug' us. We enjoyed sharing some of these things and then practising how we can use shaking and dancing as a way to make us feel better. 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart.' Proverbs 3:5.

We have enjoyed learning some of our YoungVoices songs this week. Our class favourite song at the moment seems to be the Matilda Medley.

When might you hear 'That is divine!' or 'Hasn't he got a kind nature' ? This was our starting point within our RE lesson linked to discover how the actions of Jesus show his divine nature. We learnt all about the Transfiguration story and used our wonderful prior knowledge to work out what the word transfigure means. We also begun to look at different artwork that show the Tranfiguration story. We will continue to delve into this further next week.

Within our Science lessons this week, we have learnt about creating classification keys. We started by completing questions to finish classification keys. As part of our forest schools, we then continued to develop this understanding. Mr Hadfield taught us about the characteristics of insects – 3 parts to their bodies, antennas and 6 legs. We also learnt how most insects have exoskeletons – skeletons outside of their body. Mr Hadfield gave us a range of minibeasts and, as a team, we created a classification key for them. Later on in our session, we spent time to create habitats suitable for the insects we had classified.

We have really enjoyed our DT lesson this week. We created prototypes of our catapults – carefully measuring each part and putting them together. We evaluated the success of our prototypes and thought about the hardest elements. This helps us to think about how it will be to create our catapults properly.

In Geography we did a little recap to identify the lines of latitude that we learnt in Year 3. We used our own body to find the approximate location of the equator and the Tropic of Cancer. We then linked our key fact knowledge to know the Tropic of Cancer passes through North America. 

In our French lessons this week, we have enjoyed learning about the words used to describe our relatives.

We thoroughly enjoyed our PE lesson with James from Kick!

Spagtastic homework has been set for this week.

Have a wonderful weekend.
