We have also taken part in a taste test as part of our society learning. We sampled three different kinds of water, deciding which was the tastiest. We then decided to make posters to persuade other learners around the school to drink water daily. We shared our knowledge of the effects lack of water has on our bodies. We also considered the environmental impact drinking bottles water has on the world around us.
Year 4 have been analyzing a variety of story settings with the aim of creating their own for an adventure story. They completed work based around identifying appropriate nouns and using adjectives to describe objects found on a desert island.
Year 4 have been doing work based around addition. They have been introduced to column addition and worked through a variety of 4 digit addition questions. They also answered one step word problems which included understanding the words 'total' and 'altogether'.
This week in literacy we have been making links with our IPC unit On Tap. We have explored persuasive writing and how to encourage people to re-use, re-fill and reduce the amount of plastic waste that they buy. We had to really think about how best to get people to make better decisions that would impact on the environment.
This week in maths we have been learning about angles. We have had fun making 'angle eaters'. We used these around the school to find as many different types of angles as possible.
The learners are now confident at spotting acute, right and obtuse angles and most are confident at explaining their properties.
Coming up next week...
All proceeds will go to charities which install water wells and filters, enabling clean and accessible water, in rural parts of Cambodia.
