Our learning this week (w/c 4/2/19):

Have a look at what we have been up to…
English: The drafting of our information report continued as the children worked hard to present the facts we researched during the previous week. We look forward to writing and formatting our final drafts next week.
Maths: This week we spent some time making numbers 10 times bigger and working out the affect this had on our number sentences. This helped us to see the relationships between the numbers. We also began using short multiplication as a written method for solving 2-digit by 1-digit calculations. We’ll continue to embed this new method next week.
Science: We had another hands-on week in Science as we applied our learning on circuits and component symbols to make and draw our own simple circuits. Take a look at us making the bulb light up!
Topic: Our investigation into the different world biomes continued this week as we explored the grasslands of Africa. In true detective style, the children had to crack the code first to find out the destination of this week’s lesson. Some brilliant teamwork!

Reading is so important for your child’s development. We encourage all parents to read with their child each night, if possible. Why not check out the ‘100 Books to Read in Year 3/4’? You’ll find many of these titles in our class reading corner or your local library.
100-books for Year 3/4
The National Curriculum sets out 109 words that children should know by the end of Year 4. These words will form the basis for our weekly spelling test.
