Where has this year gone? This last half term has really flown by and I can't believe we are thinking about the final weeks of Year 4.
The children have had their creative juices flowing during the last couple of weeks as we have been writing poems. We have been thinking about how we can influence the reader by our word choice, where we choose to put a word and even by the punctuation we use. We have even transferred our understanding of figurative language to our reading of the Lost Sheep in RE.
In Maths we have learnt how to multiply using a formal written method and understood how we can use the distributive law to make calculations easier. We have seen how we need to know our times tables really well (hint for an activity if bored over the holiday, or on a journey). We have begun to divide using long division and will work more on this, as well as working out time duration, when we return to school so some practise telling the time would be useful!
After the break, we will complete our look at Reconciliation in RE, complete our enquiries into the 'Vikings' and continue our work on classification by sorting the living things we observed during a habitat hunt this week.
I'd just like to wish everyone a well-deserved break. Make sure you relax and I'll see you on the 4th.
