Mysteries, Perimeter and Electrical Safety

Our FEELiT emotion this week is ‘ashamed’. We watched the video and discussed what this feels like. We did have a few confessions too!

We have continued our planning work on detective stories,  creating our detective and culprit characters and considering the things they may say. “Mmm! Interesting… I think we are getting close!” We have also made a start on our story openings – describing the location and introducing the mystery.

In maths, we have been working on perimeter of rectangles. We have worked out several strategies for calculating the perimeter of rectangles and been practising these.

In RE this week, we have learnt about how the Guru Granth Sahib (The Sikh Holy Book) is treated within the Gurdwara. We learnt that it is treated just as a human would be. It is kept comfortable, cool and treated with the utmost respect. It is even taken to a resting room over night, where it is placed into a bed until it is needed again.

In Science, we have created posters warning people of the dangers of electricity. We have thought about how we could make our messages clear, for example by using images, ‘Do’s and Don’ts’, and ticks or crosses.

In art we studied how light affects and object, showing on a sphere where the light is coming from and the shadow it makes.

We hope you have a lovely weekend,

Year 4 Team
