Unit 26 - Normandy
Friday 17th September 2021 - Week 2:
This week has been full of lots of hard work and determination! In maths, we have been carrying on our place value learning but have now moved onto 4 digit numbers, learning to recognise the Thousands, Hundreds, Tens and Ones. In English, we practised including prepositions in our sentences and then used our skills to write a setting description about a picture in our class book. We worked really hard and used some lovely, creative vocabulary!
This morning, we had a 'topic morning' and used atlases to help us name and locate the countries of Europe. We worked brilliantly in teams and made sure that everyone knew what they were doing. The finished results look brilliant and we can now name a variety of countries that make up Europe! We also practised our drawing skills to try and create different textures with our pencil.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Friday 10th September - week 1:
We have had a good first week back at school! It has been great to see our friends again, play football on the field, visit the school library and start Year 4 as 'The Fabulous Foxes!'.
In maths, we have been recapping our Year 3 place value to get us ready for our Year 4 maths next week! We have been recognising and writing hundreds numbers and comparing 3 digit numbers.
In English, we read our new English book 'The Man Who Walked Between the Towers'. This is the book that we are going to be basing lots of our writing on this term. Fox Class have started to learn about expanded noun phrases, which we will be using to write a setting description next week!
In topic, we recapped the countries that make up the UK and have learned the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world! Next week, we will begin exploring France and Normandy! In PSHE, Jigsaw Jack (David) joined us for our lesson and we had the challenge of passing him around the class without using our hands!!
We hope that you all have a lovely weekend!
