What are Year 4 learning in term 5?

We had a great day on World Book Day reading our favourite books, designing bookmarks and listening to authors telling us about their books!

Our key texts this term:

It's been a busy week in Yr4! We have continued to develop our skills as authors ready for our non-chronological reports, met some chicks who hatched in the library and set up our Advent display.

We have started our new writing topic focusing on producing a Non-Chronological report. We started by watching a video about wolves in the wild and working together to create fact sheets about these amazing animals!

This week we have been focusing on All Saints Day and as part of our class worship wrote prayers linked into this day. We have also started planning our hot write in English.

Year 4 came in excited to see what had happened to the eggs we had left over the weekend. The changes in colour for coffee and cola were quite amazing but nothing compared to what had happened to the orange juice! We came to a conclusion that we really needed to be more aware about what we eat and drink and make sure we clean our teeth properly.

In our Science lesson this week we have placed some boiled eggs into four liquids and are monitoring them to see how they react. The shell of the egg is similar to our teeth which allows us to investigate how out teeth are affected by what we drink! We will take a final look after the weekend to see what has happened.

On the 30th September, Year 4 had a fantastic visit to Weston Museum with a focus on our History topic - the Anglo-Saxons. We avoided the rain walking down and spent the day looking at artefacts, dressing up, touring the museum and exploring the exhibits.

Useful website link for times tables practice...

 

 

 

Please find a link below to an amazing times tables website I will be using with the children in class.

It gives them the opportunity to focus on specific times tables as well as testing themselves against all of them.  There are games they can use to help them and a really good plan for how they can develop their understanding and knowledge across the times tables we study in school.

Finally, there is a test section which is timed which will give them an experience of times tables against the clock!

 

This website works perfectly with Times Tables Rockstars and allows the children to practice individual times tables they may be struggling with.  Their 5 stage plan is great and when they pass it they can get a certificate!

 

Thank you for your support in this.
