Maths: This week we have been discovering more about decimals. We have discovered how to apply our knowledge of rounding to rounding decimals and had lots of fun practising using our hopscotch grids from last week. We have also impressed with our understanding of ordering decimals choosing to order three, four or even five decimals with up to 2 decimal places.

English: This week we have used the poem that we performed last week (Danny the Cat) to inspire our own rainforest poems. We have written some super poems using the structure of Benjamin Zephaniah’s poem to help us structure our own and then we have performed them to the rest of the class. Some of these have been recorded for the website. Have a listen – we hope you enjoy them too!

The most interesting part of our work this week was joining together with the other two year 4 classes for a maths trail and SPaG quiz as 4RP were homeless on Thursday due to the election. We had great fun identifying the different values of decimal numbers and then answering SPaG style questions. What a fantastic way to show off our skills and have fun learning.

Our Star of the Week is Alfie for the hard work and effort that he always puts into his work but also for the clear understanding that he has shown during our decimals work. He really impressed me with his determination to understand rounding them. This is in addition to his work on performing poetry as well as writing his own. Well done and keep up the hard work – you will reap the rewards.
