Term 1 Week 4
This week we have been busy still looking at place value but this time with number lines all the way to 10,000 and how we can compare and order numbers. Mr Lawrence was really impressed with how hard we worked and the effort that we put in.
We enjoyed our PE learning this week looking at how we can control and pass the ball in different ways. We played lots of team games, which required us to work as a team and figure out problems or disagreements for ourselves.
English we have been looking at the final stage of our writing process this week with editing. We have looked at how we can edit. Mr Lawrence even gave us a piece of work and asked us to edit and improve it. We found this really useful and are now ready to do the same with our work next week.
Term 1 Week 3
This week we have been working hard to write our main paragraphs of our non-chronological report. We have carried out research about how to make a carnival cart and the history behind the carnival.
We have also continued our Maths work on rounding and started to look at the place value of four digit numbers (thousands, hundreds, tens and ones). We have also been busy practicing our times tables and number facts which are a very big focus on Year 4.
Term 1 Week 2
In Diamond Class we had our WOW day this week. We found out that we are going to be learning about Bridgwater Carnival and the Gunpowder Plot. We had a go at drawing firework pictures. After we had our first attempt, we looked at the shapes of the fireworks and the colours that we could see. We then created our final piece from everything that we had learnt.
We also started to look at non-chronological reports, which we will be writing for our English to inform others about all the Carnival.
We started our Year 4 Maths learning this week and we have begun to look at rounding to the nearest 10 and 100. We found this rather tricky to begin with but soon got the hang of it.
This week in Diamond Class we have been settling in to our new classroom. We have been finding out about each other as well as Mr Lawrence and Mrs Rowland. We have been starting to look at the things that we will be learning in Year 4. We have met our new PE coach and had fun learning different ball skills.
