Year 4 Class Update
We are having a busy but fun term as we embark on our second learning theme of I am Warrior.
In English, we have been reading Escape from Pompeii by Christina Balit. When writing, the children have been really considering the vocabulary that they use in their setting and character descriptions, and the impact that this vocabulary has on their reader. We have been so impressed with the language that they have been using and we know they’re looking forward to sharing their work with you.
In maths, we have been developing our understanding of measure by converting between different units, for example metres and kilometres, and we have been calculating the area and perimeter in different 2D shapes. We have also been classifying triangles by learning about their different properties. This video explains the terminology that we have been using: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvmxsbk/articles/zggsfrd
In our art lessons, we have been combing charcoal and chalk to create tone in our drawings of Roman-style columns. It has been messy work as we have been blending with our fingers but it has been a lot of fun! We are now looking forward to baking biscuits in our DT lessons.
In class PE, we have been developing our orienteering skills. We have been creating and reading maps as well as developing our teamwork skills. We are looking forward to putting this into practice in a different setting at Juniper Halls in July!
We thank you for your continued support and as always, if you have any questions then please don't hesitate to contact us,
