Year 4 Weekly Updates
12/09/2017: Welcome to Year 4! The children have settled in brilliantly. This week we have been learning about our new topic ‘Road Trip USA’, which the children have been very excited about. We have, so far, looked at 14 American states that are linked closely to Native Americans and their tribes. We will continue to link this knowledge later in the term as we create dream-catchers and Iroquis long houses.
In Maths, children have learnt all about place value and used this knowledge to create numbers using Roman numerals.
In English, children have been busy writing postcards and emails, beginning to consider and compare ways to communicate with others effectively.
We look forward to meeting you at the Parents’ meeting on Wednesday 20th September at 6pm.
