12.1.23 Citizenship Project in Year 4
As part of our school Citizenship project, we have had a Journalism and Non-chronological report focus in our English lessons. Throughout the week, we have been becoming experts in a major world religion. On Friday, we practised and delivered a documentary-style role play to report and share the facts with our peers.
End of autumn term 15.12.23
Year 4 have had a busy autumn term! We have developed our understanding of number, place value and multiplication facts in maths. We have continued to read a range of pleasing texts and respond in creative ways as well as learning about topics like animals including humans, electricity, countries of the world and British history heroes.
To finish our term off nicely and in keeping with the festive mood, Year 4 developed their textiles skills to design, make and evaluate money containers. Take a look at the children in Year 4 Lourdes developing their stitching and sewing:
We have been reading an exciting new class storybook, The Boy Who Met a Whale. We have been developing our understanding of the text and the choices the author made to compose an entertaining story. We have been making sure we develop our answers and provide evidence. This week we have been looking into the grammar of adverbial phrases and developing our setting descriptions. Amazingly, we used an AI tool to generate an image from our super sentences. Take a look at the images that were created based on our setting description to get an idea of where our book takes place! We are going to be composing our own inventive recounts based on Chapter 9 in the next week.
