It's the end of another week! Once again, the children in Ash Class have worked hard throughout the week in all of their learning. In Maths, they've been learning how to use the column method for subtraction, with and without exchanging. In English, they have written some lovely poems about Autumn. In R.E., they have learnt all about Christianity and the Holy Trinity.
We've been back in school for 7 weeks now and how quickly they seem to have flown by. I'm not setting spellings or homework over half term but please keep reading and playing on Times Table Rockstars (practising them offline too of course).
All of the children in Ash Class should be proud of how well they have settled into the new routines and the new school year. Our Year 4 bubble has become one full of smiles and laughter, lots of hard work and plenty of fun. Also lots of hand sanitiser! I hope everyone enjoys a well-earned rest over the half term and I'll see you all back in school on Monday 2nd November ready to start learning again.
Here we are again on another Friday at the end of a busy week. This week in Ash, the children have written and published in neat a biography for a famous person from their imagination. In Maths, they have learnt how to add numbers together using column addition, with and without exchange. We have finished our Science unit of work 'Animals including Humans'. Some of the children were surprised by our egg investigation as it revealed that orange juice appeared to be the worst liquid for teeth!
This week's spellings:
Homophones (which will be tested in the context of a sentence):
peace, piece, main, mane, fair, fare.
Extra words from the Y3/4 list:
although, exercise, surprise, various.
Alternative spellings (for those children who I give these to):
have, out, could, my, house
Worksheet on adverbials.
That's all for now - have a lovely weekend!
We have had a class full of Scientists this week in Ash! We started the week by kicking off our investigation to answer the question 'Which liquid causes the most tooth decay?' We are using white eggs to represent the enamal of teeth and soaking them in water, orange juice and coke. Stay tuned for the results next week! Later this week, we demonstrated how the digestive system works with a very messy practical! Take a look at the photos.
This week's spellings:
caught, naughty, taught, daughter, autumn, clause, author, through, possible, different
Alternative spellings (for those children who I have given them to):
little, they, was, were, about
Have a fab weekend everyone!
Despite the weather, we've all had a good week in Ash Class this week. We finished our History unit of work on the Romans and have started our Science Unit 'Animals including humans'. We are looking at biographies in English and the specific features authors might include. This week's spellings are:
Please keep using Times Tables Rockstars and reading at home too. Our first piece of formal homework is to research how and why we should keep our teeth healthy and produce a poster explaining this. You can send photos of this via ClassDojo.
