Have a super weekend,
Friday 23rd September 2022
Although it has been a short week, we have packed a lot of learning in!
This week we have continued rounding to the nearest ten, hundred and thousand. If you are finding this tricky, I suggest having a go at some further questions at home.
In English, we published our newspaper reports. Our newspapers include facts and figures, powerful adjectives and verbs, and we challenged ourselves to include fronted adverbials. Please have a look at them on Google Classroom! I have been so impressed with everyone’s attitude to learning.

Friday 9th September 2022
Welcome to Year 4! hope you have all had a lovely summer.
We have had a lovely first week of Year 4 and have already been very busy! I am looking forward to meeting you all at the ‘Meet the Teacher’ on Tuesday 13th- Mrs Palmer has sent out details.

Science: Living things and their environment

PE: Invasion games and swimming
In Maths this week we were looking at Place Value, including regrouping, ordering 4 digit numbers and adding/ subtracting by thousands, hundreds, tens and ones. If you would like to practice at home you could order 4- digit numbers from largest to smallest (and vice versa) and be able to explain which value is greater and why (e.g. 7891 is greater than 7234 as it has a greater number of hundreds).
In English this week we started a book called ‘Escape From Pompeii’. This is a story about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. We looked at planning and writing setting descriptions using powerful adjectives and verbs. We used a thesaurus to level up our work. Thesaurus skills would be great to practice at home!
History- Research and sketch a Roman soldier. Make sure you draw and label what they wore and any weapons/ shields they might carry. Please make sure you include the material used.
Additionally- if you would like to create a fun fact file on the Romans, I am in the process of making a school display board and would love to put your work up!
Councils- if you would like to apply for one of the councils (Eco, Ethos, Learning/ School or Sports) please create a letter/ poster (or an alternative application) which includes why you would like to be part of that council and any ideas you have to help develop that council.
Reading- 5 x signed reads into reading record
