Maths

In maths we have been learning about Roman numerals, and making numbers from 1 to above a thousand. We have made them, drawn them, found them and finished off with our Indiana Jones challenge.

This is us challenging our partners to make Roman numerals…

English

We have continued learning the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, we have created actions to help us remember the story, and created our own story maps. We have begun deciding what changes we are going to make, to write our own story, based on ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’.

Topic

We have continued our work on forces and magnets, testing when they attract and repel. We have used iron filings to see where the magnetic field is, around a magnet.

This week we have visited the library bus to choose lots of stories for Year 4 to share.

Our Superstars this week are Ruby, for demonstrating such a positive attitude all week, and Ben for his amazing work on Roman numerals. Well done!

Welcome to Year 4!

We’ve had a lovely time since we’ve been back. We began with lots of team building games, and getting to know each other games. We worked as teams to build the tallest tower using spaghetti and marshmallows…

Maths

In maths we have been recapping addition, subtraction and multiplication, completing lots of chilli challenges. We’ve worked really hard and tried our best, even with lots of tricky sums!

English

We have started to learn the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, we’ve all got our own copy to bring home to learn the story a bit better.

We have been retelling the story, and creating actions to help us remember it better. We are creating our own story maps to help our retelling.

Topic

We have begun our topic ‘Forces and Magnets’, by experimenting with different magnets. We have tested what they stick to, work through, and how much weight they can hold.

We have elected our School Councillor, Joseph and our Vice Councillor, Iona.

Our Superstars this week are Riley and Iona!
