This week in year 4 we have been very busy! In English we have continued to look at inventors, most recently Alexander Graham Bell who created the telephone in 1876. We will continue to look at how to write an effective inventors portfolio next week, ensuring to use expanded noun phrases, fronted adverbials and recapping types of sentence structure.
In Maths, we have looked at multiplication and division by 10 and 100 using place value charts. We will continue this theme next week by multiplying by 2-digit and 1-digit numbers in which the children's times tables will be put to the test!
We have also started our new science topic of 'Light', learning about what is light and where does it come from. This included undertaking an experiment to determine whether different materials were: Transparent, Translucent or Opaque. The photo shows that they are testing a whiteboard to see if any light can pass through it! This understanding will be crucial in next week's lesson when we look at reflection and refraction.
The pupils have also explored what it means to be a part of a community in which they spoke about they are proud to be a part of a number of communities including, School, sports clubs and North Tawton.
Next week we will be looking forward to finding out what life was like for the Anglo-Saxons and making 'Optical Illusions' in Art.
