It’s showtime again!!!

Firstly, huge congratulations go to Saffron Class for delivering a wonderful class assembly this morning in the tomb of Rameshawn XIV. They took us on a journey back in time to show everything they have learnt about the Ancient Egyptians from mummification to the curse of the mummy’s tomb. They did a great job and thank you to all the family members who came to support them.

Other things that have been happening this week include multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100 in maths, learning to move the digits to the left or right and noticing the change and then adding the placeholders. We will now be moving on to explore measures over the coming week.

In English, we have been practising expanded noun phrases with our work inspired by the poem ‘Overheard on the Saltmarsh’ by Harold Monro. We have used strong adjectives and prepositions to describe the nymph, goblin and glass beads, that the goblin so desperately wants. He demands the beads in such a way that he sounds aggressive and obnoxious! Next week, we will be using our ideas to write descriptions for both the goblin and the nymph.

In gymnastics, we have been exploring the large apparatus, learning how to use it safely to travel, balance and dismount.

In Science, we have been working on a comic strip cartoon to tell the story of a water droplet as it goes through the stages of evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection. We will be aiming to finish those next week.

The decorations are going up – it must be approaching Christmas! Year 4 wanted to ‘give back’ and spread a little Christmas joy by making some cards to send to children in a Ukraine hospital, who won’t be allowed home for Christmas.

We hope to see many of you at the Christmas Fair tomorrow.

Enjoy your weekend,

Year 4 team.
