Our work - Spring term:

This has been a different kind of term for us in Year 4 as most of us have had to learn from home. We have worked very hard and made all our teachers proud with our resilience and positive attitude.

 

 

English:

For our English this term, we began by learning about traditional tales. We thought about the story of the Three little pigs and how this might have been reported if it was a real news story. Here is some of our work:

 

 

 

We then moved onto learning about Ancient Greek myths. We learnt about myths such as Theseus and the Minotaur, Pandora’s Box and Icarus and Daedalus. We thought about the message of each myth and the personality traits of the characters in these stories. We also used the events to design our own creatures, creations and discuss the rights and wrongs of the character’s actions. We’ve also linked our learning with History and DT. Here is some of our work:

 

Maths:

For our Maths this term we have been looking at fractions. We have used fraction walls to help us match and make fractions as well as find equivalent fractions too! We have also looked at how our times tables can help us to find an equivalent fraction.  During our Zoom teachings, we repeated and learnt the phrase: What we do to the numerator, we have to do to the denominator! Here is some of our work:

Topic:

In our topic we have been exploring the water cycle and the importance of rivers. We learned about the names of each part of the river too as well as where famous rivers around the world are.        Here is some of our work:

We have also put lots of effort into learning cooking and baking skills. Here are some of the things we have made:

 

In our learning this half term we have been listening to James and the Giant Peach and using this in our writing and applying reading skills to understanding it. We have learnt about how to make our writing interesting to the reader by using adjectives, adverbs and fronted adverbials.
