What we have been learning this week...

In Maths this week, we have moved onto developing our knowledge of place value and representing this in different ways. We have learnt how to round to the nearest 10 and the nearest 100. In English, we have read more of our class text Cloudbusting and written our own limericks. We worked really hard on these. In History, we learnt about Ancient Greek democracy and then moved on to reflecting how this impacted our voting today. We voted for the Year 6 house captains at our very own polling station using a ballot box.

What we have been learning this week...

Welcome back and welcome to Year 4. So far this half term we have completed 'The Week of Inspirational Maths' where the pupils solved a range of different puzzles and spotted different patterns. During this the children consolidated their knowledge of the words consecutive and multiple. In English we have begun to read our class text 'Cloudbusting' by Malorie Blackman which is fantastic selection of 26 poems which tell a story. The children have begun to identify different features of the poetry and also written their own haikus. We have also listened to some Greek Myths and the children are all showing real interest in these which is fantastic.
