Collective Worship – first week of Advent

Collective Worship – first week of Advent

This week in our Collective Worship Year 4 reflected on Advent and how we can prepare ourselves for the birth of Jesus. We thought about how we can show kindness to those around us and agreed that as our mission we would make Christmas cards for people less fortunate than ourselves to show them they are loved at Christmas.

Tag Rugby

Tag Rugby

In Year 4 we continue to enjoy learning to play Tag Rugby in PE. We practised how to move on the pitch as well as how to pass the ball whilst running. Next week we’ll be playing our first competitive game and we are really looking forward to it!

Shang Dynasty Cooking

Today in Design and Technology, we had a great lesson making porridge from ingredients that were used in Shang Dynasty times. We weighed and measured all of the ingredients ourselves and then cut fruit to have on top. Most of us thought it was quite yummy!

Dividing by 10, 100 and 1000

Dividing by 10, 100 and 1000

Today in Maths, Year 4 have been learning how to divide by 10, 100 and 1000. Using our place value charts we learned that when you divide by 10 your number moves one space to the right – getting 10 x smaller. We’ll be practising this more this week.
