    Maths - Area problems

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Alongside the CanDo daily maths, which has been covering all 4 operations this week, year 4 have been solving extra problems relating to measurement. They were shown a series of shapes and asked to work out the area of each. Sometimes this was as simple as counting the squares, whilst sometimes they had to use the measurements of the height and width to help them. Everyone scored 100%. Well done all.

    English - Direct Speech

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    The focus today was on inverted commas. How and where to use them in direct speech. The children had to put the inverted commas and missing punctuation into the correct places.It helped to work out exactly what the speaker was saying to begin with. This was a good revision exercise for synonyms for the word said.

    D.T - Strengthening Structures

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We watched a video explaining how to make structures stronger and looked at various suspension bridges around the world. We looked at some rules to follow - keep the base wider than the top - how to offset blocks, and why triangles are the strongest shape in construction. Congratulations to Noah and Poppy who got to work with their Lego to create some sturdy bridges.

    Maths - Handling Data

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Today we got to learn about some different ways data can be shown or 'visualised' and how to find information from the data. We got to understand why collecting data is really important for helping people make important decisions. How it helps to compare different things as well as showing patterns. We also got to know the term discrete data and how to use it effectively.

    Weekly spelling test

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Over 80% of the class took part in the spelling test this week. I know the countdown timer disappearing at the side of the screen is very off-putting, but there were lots of 100% scores. Words with the "ch" spelling/k phoneme were the focus this week.

Today's task was to order different amounts of money and use comparison symbols to compare values. It's great to see you completing these extra tasks as well as the weekly maths packs being sent. A big thank you to all of you for keeping your numeracy skills topped up.

    National Sports Week

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    With the glorious weather, there has never been a better time to be outside. Lots of you are still diving and swimming in your own pools, which looks great fun. Ashton has been very busy. He has set up a cricket match, whilst trying not to get whacked by his little brother, and met up for a socially distant bike ride with Jack. Don't forget to check what events you can choose to do next and keep those scores coming in.
