Year 4 have been using their multiplication knowledge to help answer related division questions. It has been tricky at times but the learners have been super resilient towards their learning.They have also answered division based questions using the bus stop method. Great growth mindset this week. We learn from our mistakes!
It has been a frightening week in Year 4 literacy, developing our creepy stories about the abandoned house. We have worked hard to practise using fronted adverbials and are now working on using speech accurately in our writing. We built up a bank of words we could use instead of 'said' and have practised using inverted commas in the right place. We will continue this learning into next week.
This week in maths we have been exploring capacity using a range of different containers. We made predictions about their capacity and marked off different measures in ml and l. Then we had to use measuring jugs and cylinders to accurately mark off the actual amounts of water in ml. Some of us were very surprised by the results and found that the capacity of our container was much less than we had imagined.
This week in literacy we have been editing our stories and improving the speech. We looked at a range of examples of speech within existing stories and observed how they use punctuation accurately. Working in pairs, to act out the sentences, we helped each other to figure out where the inverted commas should go then decided if it needed a comma, a full, stop, exclamation mark or question mark.
