This year, we are having a huge push on science and ensuring that our children are practically developing their scientific skills whilst improving their knowledge of the science curriculum. This first term, we are looking at ‘States of Matter’ and we have already completed two practical investigations to develop our knowledge and understanding of solids, liquids and gases. Thanks to Mrs Cook, we also have a vocabulary wall that shows all of the words that we understand that have been identified from our Year 4 long term science plans. Parents, you can test us on any of the words that are on the right hand side. I am sure that the majority of the children will be able to explain them in detail.
A big well done to all of the children below on bringing in their first piece of homework. They had to research our new topic ‘Ancient Greece’ and the children thought of some absolutely fantastic ways of showing off their new knowledge. Well done to all!
In Year 4, we have been learning how to multiply and divide by 10 and 100. We have been struggling a little bit. However, with the aid of our practical lesson, we are a lot more confident with the method now. We will be putting these types of calculations onto our rapid recall sheets for the next few weeks to ensure that we retain the skill.
