Following on from our entry point, we completed a knowledge harvest to find out what we already know about this unit and found out what we will be learning.
We started with geography where we use maps to help us locate the position of a variety of continents and countries. We then discovered which food grows where and thought of reasons why this may be. All this thinking about food sure did make us hungry though! Check out some of our photos from our entry point last Friday.
Maths and Literacy
In Literacy Year 4 have been learning how to write a short story.The learners examined a variety of short stories and identified the correct features, paragraph by paragraph. We will use our knowledge of these features to plan and write our own story, step by step.
In maths, we have been working hard on multiplication. We have focused on learning the times tables and multiplying by 10, 100 or 1000 to help us with more complex multiplication. We will be learning how to use this skill when using the column method.
This week in Maths, we have been learning to use the column method. We learnt the expanded column method to begin with to check our understanding of what we were doing. Year 3 have been great thinkers and have been brilliantly resilient when learning how to use this method for addition. Well done Year 3!
This week in literacy we have been immersing in the story of Burger Boy. By making links with our Learning Journey topic 'What's on the menu?', we started to think about adapting the story using different foods. We are really excited to make our own versions and present these to the other classes.
