Christmas Jumper Day
We used view-finders to focus on a section of a picture of a sculpture of Draco.
We applied our learning of hatching and shading to create tone.
Year 4 have enjoyed learning about cross- hatching in their art lessons. We learnt new vocabulary to describe different types of hatching and played a game of bingo, matching the description given to the new words. We used observation skills to replicate a pattern. We then used the different types of hatching to add tone to an outline of a hand to make it look realistic.
Year Four made the most of the sunny weather and enjoyed completing art outside. We looked at how to create tone using hatching, cross -hatching and other sketching techniques.
Harvest Festival Worship:
We enjoyed participating the Harvest Festival Worship.
We learnt how to sign along with two worship songs and put our best efforts to perform this during the worship video.
In music, we have learnt how to play ‘Easy E’, using the ‘E’ key of the glockenspiel. We read a music sheet and played along to a performance track, becoming more accurate each time.
Animals including humans- we learnt how to classify animals based on their characteristics.
We used venn diagrams to sort animals into shared characteristics.
We learnt MRS GREN which is a helpful way to remember the life processes all living things share.
We used manipulatives to represent numbers. We then adapted numbers to cross through tens and hundreds, showing exchanging.
We spend time every day playing Maths Frame Times Tables Check on the IPADS. We are getting much quicker at recalling our times tables to 12x12.
Place Value Game:
To order to consolidate our understanding of place value, we played the place value game, a game like bingo.
"This number is an even number between 150 and 170".
"This number is a multiple of 6".
We are enjoying reading a range of genres, including Beano comic strips.
We enjoyed being Superheroes for a day!
We are brave, resilient and work hard to develop our superpowers across the curriculum.
