Term 1 Week 5

Week 5

In maths we are learning x4 table and continuing with our place value unit of work. We have been solving problems with negative numbers and counting in 25s. 

We have continued to write the first draft of our Greek myths and enjoyed learning how to edit our own work and do effective peer editing. After looking at models and examples of myths, the children have been inspired to create their own wonderful quests with exciting monsters and brave heroes. Our grammar topics have included accurate speech punctuation and finding a range of exciting and adventurous descriptive words and phrases to enhance our stories. 

The excitement has been building for the school council elections tomorrow and we have been enjoying some fantastic speeches and presentations from the candidates. 

Parent consultation evenings are fast approaching and we are looking forward to meeting you all again soon. 

Please continue to encourage the children to practise multiplication tables, the orange words for term 1 and daily reading.  

Best wishes, 

The Year 4 team
