Weekly News – 26th April 2019
Welcome back everyone! We hope you have enjoyed a restful break and are looking forward to Term 5!
In our Maths lessons this week, we have been looking at different representations of number. We looked at Roman Numerals and discussed their differences between the number systems we use today. We also looked at place value and number as well as spending time researching Mayan, Chinese and Thai numerals.
In English, we have continued working through ‘The Pebble in my Pocket’. We competed an exciting experiment showing the effects of erosion and then wrote this up before completing some detailed research on the causes of erosion. We then wrote an information text, focusing on cause & effect, and subject specific language
We have started our ‘Good to be Me’ values unit. Year 4 spent time discussing what makes them unique and individual. We then creating some wonderful pieces of artwork We used half portraits of ourselves to complete and added some extremely inspirational quotes. We also created artwork that showcased of all the things that we thought made us special.
