In year 4 this week….
The children have been focusing on place value and using 4-digit numbers to add and subtract. They have also worked on ordering 4-digit numbers on a number line and using their knowledge of greater than or less than to compare numbers.
In literacy, we have started a unit of work based on ‘Aesop’s fables’. The children have used a variety of fables from the book to complete tasks. We have worked on recording and developing dialogue, as well as punctuating dialogue correctly using the rules that the children learnt in class. They have also really enjoyed using role play to help with completing these tasks and it has been lovely to see their confidence grow.
It has been lovely getting to know year 4 this week. I have been really impressed with the children’s behaviour and mature attitude that they have shown already! The children have had a chance to be really creative by designing and creating their own front covers for Topic, Science and R.E books. I am looking forward to finding out what the class can produce when we get stuck into subject lessons next week.
