⭐️⭐️Well done to our special mentions this week! ⭐️⭐️
Daniel - An excellent descriptive piece of writing about the Minotaur
Charlie - A fantastic positive attitude to his learning
This week year 4 have been writing some engagaing physical descriptions of the Minotaur using similes, adjectives and prepositions. They have also been looking at mental strategies for addition and subtraction.
Next week, we will continue our focus on addition and subtraction. In English we will be imagining our own Greek g-ds and writing about their physical appearence and personality. Thursday afternoon is going to be messy and exciting as we will be creating a 3D functioning model of the digestive system by turning biscuits into faeces, using tights, plastic bags and trays!
Becoming Ancient Greek Archaeologists
Today in topic year 4 became archaeologists and dug up lots of Ancient Greek artefacts. They sketched the artefacts they found to make sure they were inspecting them closely before making a guess as to what they were. To help them check the real significance of the artefacts, they completed a Google image search using the iPads.
⭐️⭐️Well done to our special mention winners this week!⭐️⭐️

What a fun and creative start to year 4 we have had! The children have loved learning all about Keith Haring and using his work to inspire their own. Not only have we been real graffiti artists by producing chalk works of art on the school building and pavement, we also sculpted our own models using felt tips to dye the clay.
Next week we will be looking at estimation and rounding in Maths while delving deeper into our English text ‘Percy Jackson and the Lightning Theif’.
- PE is on Tuesdays. Please ensure children are in Pe kits.
- Spellings and reading books with reading records will come home on the 1st October.
