In English, Year 4 have been busy working on explanation texts. They have watched Wallace and Gromit’s inventions for inspiration and designed various labour saving devices for busy parents.
In Maths we have been learning how to make a whole, writing, comparing and ordering decimal numbers. We have been impressed with the work we have seen and the pupils have a secure understanding of this.
In Science, pupils have been preparing an interview or writing biographies about the scientist Carl Linnaeus. We are now beginning to explore sound and pupils will be carrying out investigations around their homes.
In History we have started the Tudors, starting with placing this era on a timeline. There is lots to learn, notably about the larger than life character Henry V111 and his wives. Children will also be learning what it would have been like to live during this period.
In RE we have been reading various sacred stories. Children will think about what messages the stories give us. In art children are practising their sketching skills and sketching what they can see from their windows.
