What a fabulous week!! We have continued our sentence stacking for our book 'float' - we even got a retweet from the person who created the sentence stacking technique! We also learnt about apostrophes for omission by being contraction surgeons. In maths, we've finished our times table and mental multiplication topic and will be moving on to written methods next week. In science we've been learning about sound, we made string telephones to see how sound travels through a solid. In topic we made 3D models of the layers of the earth, it was super fun to play with play dough. We started our dance unit this week - looking at routines involving volcanoes and earthquakes.

Whole School Mass Led by Year 4
Welcome back! We've had a great few days back at school; writing a recount of our holidays, working together to solve times table problems in maths, getting a sneak peak of our topic 'What makes the Earth Angry' in computing and having an archery taster session in PE!
We've had a great half term, finishing off our Stone Age to Iron Age topic, making water cycles in Science, learning how to use figurative ;language in English and look at multiplication in Maths. We also learnt about how Mary had to trust in God and compared being a refugee now to how Jesus would have felt going to Egypt.
KS2 put on a wonderful display of talent ranging from dance to rap and music to drawing. Our fabulous presenters Olivia and Anna did a great job organising the show!
Year 4 had an amazing time becoming archaeologists for the day. We took part in an archaeological dig and even reenacted a burial.
We've had a fab few weeks in year 4. This week we wowed everyone with our assembly, IT ROCKED! Thank you to the parents who came to watch. We also learnt about the Beaker people and created our own beakers from clay. We found out about how Stonehenge came about but no one knows why it's really there. In maths we had a focus on perimeter and in English we wrote diaries of our journey to Hogwarts and are starting a match report for a Quidditch game. Our class mass went really, thank you to those who read and to the parent who came and supported us. In RE, we have continued our topic of Trusting in God and created similes for trusting in God. In Science, we've gone experiment mad and have looked at measuring the mass of carbon dioxide in fizzy drinks and the melting temperature of chocolate.
This week we've started learning about column subtraction in maths, written a descriptive account of Diagon Alley, started looking at solids, liquids and gases in Science. We've also talked about Trusting in God in RE and in Art/D&T we've designed and started to create our own Diagon Alley shop.
Spellings WC 13/11
During PE today we learnt a dance to celebrate Diwali next Thursday. Everyone worked really hard and we managed to finish the dance and make our own sections in an hour!!! We had some very warm faces by the end but I'm sure you'll agree, it was worth it!
We've had a fab week in Year 4. In maths we've ended our place value topic by looking at negative numbers and counting in 25's. In English we've finished our book 'Stone Age Boy' and have written our own adventure stories. In Science we learnt how to draw circuit diagrams, in Topic we finished our cave paintings, made a cave of hands (very messy job) and started writing house adverts for Stone Age Dwellings and in RE we learnt the story of Jonah and the Whale.
We will be working through the 100 Year 3/4 words throughout next week. Starting with the first 25 on Monday and so on. For those on the 5/6 words, we will be doing the same, 1-25 on Monday and so on.
We've had a great week being swept away with all the leaves and getting ready for the harvest festival. In maths we have looked at ordering and comparing 4 digit numbers, in English we have used inverted commas for direct speech and looked at how the 5 senses can help us with descriptive writing. In science we investigated conductors and insulators and in RE we learnt the story of Joseph using a story box and singing.
This week we have been exploring circuits further in Science, looking at why circuits will and won't work. We have also been looking at the value of the digits in 4 digit number and been answering some tricky questions. In English we have got stuck in to our new book 'Stone Age Boy' , we've been hot seating characters, exploring adjectives to describe the characters and using fronted adverbials to re-write the start of the book.
We've had a fab week predicting what we think our new book in English is about. We've also been looking at rounding and place value in maths which has been tricky but we've got there. In Science we have started our topic of electricity and investigated different circuits and in Topic we used a toilet roll to see how long ago the Stone Age was and write our own pre-historic messages to each other. In RE we have been looking at our Holy Book the Bible and learning how to look up Bible references.
