This week's blog is going to be filled with photos as we've been so busy! In English, we have started our new text based on the legend 'Beowulf'. We are reading a version of this Anglo-Saxon tale by Chris Riddell called 'The Monster Slayer'. The children were captivated when we read the story and then thoroughly enjoyed acting out the main plot points. Have a look at the photos below. In Maths, we've completed a short unit on 'Area' and have learnt how to calculate area, draw rectilinear shapes with given areas and compare shapes with different areas. We had a super afternoon on Tuesday out at Forest School and spent the time foraging for natural materials to make dyes and having a go at the rope course which Miss Prince set up. On the theme of being active, the children all put excellent effort into Gymnastics this week too. On Monday, we took part in a virtual 'Healthcare Careers PSHE Session' during which the children had the opportunity to find out and ask questions about 3 different careers in healthcare: Occupational Therapy, Clinical Pharmacy and Radiography. In History, we learnt all about what the Anglo-Saxons believed.
As always, please continue to spend some time each day at home reading, practising spellings and times tables. I sent home information about the Year 4 Multiplication Check this week so please have a read and get in touch with me if you have any questions. This is a great website for practising: Multiplication Tables Check - Mathsframe
Have a lovely weekend everybody.
