Thank you so much to all of those that donated to Children in Need, whether it was purchasing Pudsey pins, keyrings or donating on the day. We really appreciate the effort parents/carers have put in and it was lovely seeing so many home-made designed tops and T-shirts. Thank you once again.
We continued researching and learning about volcanoes in our English sessions this week. After spending time summarising key facts, the children wrote their own information text about what a volcano is, the different types of volcanoes and where volcanoes occur. They were very excited to share what they have written with the other children and we will be collating their work to turn it into a class information text. So next time you are visiting our classes, you can have a read!
In maths this week, the children learnt about mass. They read a range of kitchen scales and were able to convert kilograms (kg) into grams (g) and vice versa. Following on from the previous weeks learning with rounding to the closet whole number, the children were able to round each mass to the nearest kg.
During our science this week we learnt all about vertebrates and invertebrates. Then the children worked in groups to sort and compare given animals using their features and by answering questions - where does it live?, what does it look like?, Is it an invertebrate or a vertebrate? etc. If you want to have a go at home, have a look at the videos above and pick your own animals to sort and compare.
Just a reminder for all the children in year 4, please remember to wear your coats when you go outside at break and lunch. A few children are going out in just their jumpers, despite numerous reminders. Please could you have a word with your child and explain that it is getting colder outside now and they need to be wearing their coats. Children need to also remember to pick up their own coats after eating their lunch! It would be handy if parents/carers could write their child's name on the inside of their coat so we can sort out any confusions if they occur. Thank you so much.
Have a great weekend.
