Year 4

Weekly Update of w/e 8th June 2018

This week the children have settled back into their work brilliantly and have enjoyed reading and identifying the features of recounts in English. In maths, they have done a fantastic job at mastering multiplication, such as using partitioning or the formal method to multiply a two or three-digit number by a one digit.  The children had a great time at Chiltern Open Air Museum and were great ambassadors for the school. They learnt how to thatch, decorate brooches and even identified poo from different time periods!!

Next week ……


Next week, we will be writing our recounts to describe our experiences based on the trip at the Chiltern Open Air Museum. We will be using lots of descriptive words and phrases to make it seem like the reader is there with us.


Next week, will be finishing our unit of multiplication and moving onto our new unit of using the formal layout to solve division problems.

Topic and Science

In Topic, we will be continuing to learn about Anglo-Saxon life, in particular the jobs they undertook during that period.

In Science, we will be learning about how sound travels into the ear.

Pre learning

In preparation for our science lessons next week we would like the children to watch the video from the link below:
