In English this week, we have written and edited letters to Jemmy Button. The children have been using different techniques to give reason why Jemmy should stay in London and why he should return to his island. They wrote letters with a balanced argument, leaving the final decision up to Jemmy.
In Maths we have begun our multiplication and division topic. We have used the grid method and formal written method to solve multiplication questions. We will be continuing this next week. Please continue to encourage your child to take part in Sumdog challenges. This is a fun way for the children to practice their skills.
We had our Geography day today. Year 4 were developing their map skills. We used geographical language to help us find countries on a map. We then focused on Australia, where the children created a ‘jigsaw’ map which show the different landscapes within the country.
