Our learning this week (w/c 21/1/19):
English: Drafting and editing a research report about deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest.
Maths: Multiplying 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers.
Science: Understanding the components of an electrical circuit.
Have a look at what we have been up to…
English: This week in English we introduced The Vanishing Rainforest by Richard Platt, and considered the causes and effects of deforestation in the Amazon. The children researched contrasting opinions and presented their views in a debate, representing the Loggers, Villagers and Environmentalists.
Maths: We continued with our pre-Christmas topic of multiplication and division, this time focusing on the 8 times table. Times Table Rockstars is really helping us recall our facts quickly and solve some tricky word problems!
Science: What a super lesson! Our focus this term is on Electricity and we used the Van Der Graff generator to explore static electricity. Look how Mrs Plummer’s hair is attracted to the metal dome while Arthur turns the wheel!
We generated our own static by rubbing a plastic comb with a wool cloth. The electrons moved about between the two materials and caused the paper confetti to be attracted to the comb. What super scientists we are!

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.
