Week 7

Wow, its the last week of half term and what a brilliant half term we have had.  Well done to all of Class 4, they have worked hard to learn about biomes, the rainforest, the Amazon river, the wildlife of South America, the states of North America as well as finishing the novel Holes by Louis Sachar.  The children have also worked on developing their understanding of column multiplication and division using bus stop.  We have learnt the Macarena in Spanish as part of understanding songs and parts of the body.  We have also learnt about plants and how they grow and how water is transported.  Well done Class 4, I am proud of you all!

Replicating how the Capillary action in plants works using water, cups and paper towels.

This week the children have recapped their understanding of how mountains are made and identified different examples of these on a map of the USA.  We have also continued our journey of division, using partitioning to find the answers to division problems with and without remainders.

In PE the children continued developing balance, symmetry and reflection routines whilst on Monday the children took part in an E-Safety workshop.

In Literacy we finished our novel Holes by Louis Sachar which the children loved and began writing dialogue through reported and direct speech as well as creating a book review.

Well done Class 4!
