Welcome to Year 4! Miss Humphreys is Class 4’s teacher and Miss Shergold, our wonderful TA, is with us every day to support the learning across the curriculum.
We have had a fantastic start to the year. In English, we have been learning about expanded noun phrases, compound sentences and adverbs. Our pieces of extended writing have been inspired by ‘The Time-Travelling Cat and the Egyptian Goddess’. Our Whole Class Reading text is the fabulous ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ by Roald Dahl. Our Maths work has begun with recapping and developing our number and place value knowledge before moving on to addition and subtraction.
This term, our class has had the exciting opportunity to take part in a Writing Blog Project along with other Equa Multi Academy Trust schools. We will be using the blog to share some of our writing and other aspects of learning throughout the year. In our weekly Blogging sessions, taught live via Zoom by external teachers, we have enjoyed exploring different forms of poetry and experimenting with a various literary devices.
During topic lessons, Class 4 have been learning all about Ancient Egypt. The children have been examining Ancient Egyptian artefacts, producing some fabulous drawings of Egyptian landscapes and learning about skeletons and muscles in Science.
