Heroes Week

This week we have been celebrating heroes. In literacy we have been learning about the various features of biographies and have written some about King Alfred. Maths has  been focused on collecting, showing and interpreting information. Children are now able to collect information using tally charts and are able to record this  in bar charts and line graphs.

We have also had the opportunity to listen to and ask questions of real life heroes. On Monday Mr Hunt  came to our school and spoke to us about the fantastic charity work that he does for service men and women who have been injured. Thursday afternoon began with a visit from Mr Ozouf. Mr Ozouf        worked as a computer engineer  and spoke of his many exciting and brave experiences on Royal Navy vessels.

We hope that you have a restful half term.

Thank you

Goodbye to Miss Horn

Hello,

This week year 4 said goodbye to Miss. Horn who has been a student teacher helping us to learn in our year group. Miss. Horn has worked hard to build relationships with all of the children in 4A and this showed as there were cards and songs written for her. We wish her all the best in the rest of her training!

Tomorrow is Art Day! On this day we will be looking at different artistic techniques that we will use to build art work in time for the Waterlooville Art Trail! Look out for pictures being uploaded to the website!

This week in our maths we have explored fractions and decimals. At home you could go back and look at finding fractions of a shape or find more unusual equivalent fractions.

In our Literacy we have been finalising our information texts about the Vikings. At home you could try creating an information text about your favourite game, sport, TV programme or book!

We don’t do maths by halves!

Hello,

It has been a very busy week. The children have been working really hard solving problems involving fractions. They have been with halves, quarters, thirds and tenths. Perhaps they could make their own fraction walls as part of their home learning.

In their literacy, children have started their own Viking information texts. They have been practicing their research skills and have made notes about Vikings which they will use in their information texts.

Keep an eye out for a letter next week telling you about our upcoming Viking day.

Thank you

Welcome back Miss Horn!

Hello,
This week in maths we have been continuing to practice our skills to solve addition and subtraction problems. Mr Austin and I are very pleased with the commitment that the children have shown in this area of their learning.

The children have finished their Saxon stories this week and have spent time editing and improving them ready to publish. Next week we will be learning about the Vikings and the impact that they had on Britain.

Please continue with the excellent home learning and have a fantastic weekend in the sun!

 

Thank you,

Year 4 Team
