In English we have been writing portal stories, about a character discovering a magical portal and a new world. In these stories Year 4 were expected to use fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases and direct speech.
Here are some of our amazing stories:
In Maths we have been looking at number and place value. In this unit we learnt to count in thousands, count in 25s, compare and arrange numbers within 10 0000, describe number patterns and round numbers. We have also been learning about addition and subtraction, using the column method with renaming to add and subtract up to 4-digit numbers and learning methods to add and subtract mentally.
Look at some of our wonderful journal work:
Learning Challenge - Irritating Invaders
Year 4 had a great introduction to our new topic, Irritating Invaders. We gathered around the fire, listened to Viking legends and shared flat breads.
