Year 4 News: 1st May 2020

1st May 2020

Home learner of the week: George Hind

Golly, we’ve nearly reached the end of another week of home learning and what a lot you have done. Mrs Ball and I are very proud of you all. We have seen lots of neatly presented and carefully considered work and many of you have challenged yourselves. You are really showing us how ‘more Year Four’ you can be!

I know that some of you found bar models a difficult concept but all of you showed us how you could use multiplication and division to scale up and down. Fantastic. Some of you even enjoyed yummy pancakes as part of your maths! I have also seen some very accurate column multiplication.

You have all been busy this week planning a balanced argument. By Friday we should see detailed discussions with fronted adverbials and persuasive vocabulary. Lots of you seem to be enjoying working at home but we know that you miss your friends and the staff at Hanbury too. We miss you too.

We saw some careful note making in Science, which gave us lots of information about the digestive system. It is really important to try your best to keep up with the science, topic and the other curriculum areas we set for you. The lessons will build on your learning each week and you may miss out on important learning if you don’t keep up.

In topic, you have been able to use your coordinate skills to locate countries of the world using longitude and latitude. Knowing where countries are in the world is an important skill.

We saw lots of certificates awarded for your coding work in ICT. Well done.

We heard some really good French this week, all about the weather. Formidable!

On Friday we asked to think about our Hanbury Value of kindness. As we know you are all really kind and thoughtful, this should be something you will all excel at.

Above are some photographs showing what you have all been up to.

Have a lovely weekend and have a rest ready for lots more learning next week.

Take care, stay safe.

Mrs Hope and Mrs Ball
