Year 4

Weekly Update of w/e 29th June 2018

The warmer weather has really tested our patience this week! Fortunately, in year 4 we have enjoyed the cool glacial breeze drifting down from the air conditioning. No sweat drenched pupils but instead children cool, calm and ready to learn! In English, the children have enjoyed planning an argument and then presenting their viewpoints confidently to the rest of the class.  In maths, they have really impressed us with their perseverance in tackling problems related to time. They have also developed their creative skills by starting their Monet inspired pictures.

Next week ……

English

Next week, we will be writing our own balanced argument about whether fidget spinners should be allowed in the classroom.

Maths

In maths we will be continuing our unit on interpreting and presenting data.

Topic and Science

In Topic, we will be examining Anglo-Saxon artefacts to help us find out about the person found in an Anglo-Saxon grave.

In Science, we will be investigating which materials are effective in preventing vibrations from sound sources reaching the ear.
