I'm really pleased with how the children's cinquain poems turned out. We made our class poetry book and it's lovely to have this as it's a permanent feature which can be read any time. We're now moving on from poetry to a fiction unit of writing based on the book 'Leon and the Place Between.' I'm looking forward to some creative imagination for a future story.
In maths, we've begun a unit on Fractions. After recapping what a fraction is and how we can represent fractions, we've been learning about fractions greater than one whole and how these can be written as mixed numbers and improper fractions. We're continuing to learn about migration in geography and, this week, we looked at the reasons why people migrate. We categorised these into 'push' factors (things that make someone want to leave a place) and 'pull' factors (things that draw people to a new place). Our science lesson explored some of the things we can find in our solar system including comets, meteors and asteroids. Next week, we will be discovering facts about the planets in our solar system.
It was great to see some of you for the information evening about the Year 4 Multiplication Check. I'm noticing great improvements from some of the children's scores, so please do keep practising daily at home - it makes all the difference! Also keep practising spellings and reading as well.
To finish off today's blog, have a look at how fab our dragon eye display looks.
