Year 4 Weekly Review
Children fulfilling their potential in the heart of the community.
Week ending Friday 18th October 2019
This week in Maths we have been adding two 4-digit numbers using the column method. We started by adding 1s, 10s, 100s and 100s, to see what happened to each column. We then moved on to exchanging (carrying). After half term we will be subtracting two 4-digit numbers using the column method, again when exchanging (borrowing) is involved. It is so important that we have an understand of place value and put each number in the correct column.
This week we carried on looking at poems in Cloud Busting. We then wrote a descriptive poem using the best adjectives we knew and then moved on to writing a limerick. We also planned and wrote a letter to The British Museum thanking them for our wonderful trip. After Half term we will be starting a new book called ‘The Spiderwick Chronicles’. We will be using the text to make inferences about the characters, and using descriptive language to write a setting description, drawing on other writers work to inspire us and improve our work.
This week in PSHE we discussed the similarities and differences between people and how we are all unique. We have also been looking at Growth Mindset.
