What happened to the sunshine?!
A lovely and hard working second week for Year 4!
In Maths we have been pushing through our vast fractions and decimals unit, focusing on understanind decimal equivalence for hundredths and tenths. For example: 0.32 is 32/100 or 3/10 + 2/100. Developing this skills further, we have been applying it to a range of problems and emphasising precise reasoning. We have also been rounding and comparing decimals use the ‘more than’ and ‘less than’ symbols. For example: I think 1.4 is bigger than 1.46. Do you agree? Prove it.
English lessons this week have ben focused around preparing to write our gruesome, terrifying yet delicious monster recipes related to our Beowolf topic. We’ve experiemented with writing the same sentence but in a range of different ways (to promote a deeper understanding of sentence skills) and introductions ready for our appetising recipes. Once we’ve finished our plans, we’ll begin writing them next week.
In RE we’ve been identifying and understanding key phrases about Heaven from a range of scriptures. Using this information, we’ve each produced a pieces of artwork about what we believe Heaven is like, making links to the scripture where possible.
For homework this week, the children should practice converting between different unit of measure.
Groups 1 and 2 should practice:
Group 3 and 4 should practice
The rule is:
If a verb ends in a consonant-vowel-consonant (CVC) pattern it gets a double consonant + ing.
This rule DOESN’T work for words ending in: w,x,y and z.
Have a lovely weekend!
