Here you can find out all the exciting things we are learning about! We will also have useful information for parents, relating to the things we are doing and the subjects we are learning.
In numeracy we are learning all about multiplication and division. We have began to multiply 3 numbers as well as multiplying 3 digit numbers, mentally!
We use place value and partitioning to help us multiply mentally.
642 x 3 = 1926
642 = 600 - 40 - 2
600 x 3 = 1800
40 x 3 = 120
2 x 3 = 6
1800 + 120 + 6 = 1926
In Year 4 we use the formal method for multiplication
In Literacy we are learning all about newspapers. We have learnt about what makes an excellent newspaper, the different features included in a newspaper and the structure of a newspaper.
We have had a lot of fun using play on words, puns and alliteration to create catchy headlines. We have even had a go at writing our own newspaper report on our Rememberance assembly!
We are currently reading a playscript called 'The Witches' by Roald Dahl.
We are having lots of fun bringing the playscript to life following the stage directions and acting it out.
This term we are focusing on using our inference and retrieval skills.
Why not try practice these skills when reading at home? Ask someone to ask you questions about your book. Then, try and infer the characters feelings!
Our topic this term is 'Animals including Humans'.
We have learnt all about the digestive system, using a range of scientific language to describe the process. Ask us how we digest our food, I bet we will shock you with the fancy scientific terminology we use!
