Practising column subtraction

This week in Maths we have worked incredibly hard to master subtracting two four digit numbers with more than one exchange. We practised first using our place value charts and counters and then moved on to setting calculations out in columns in our books. It was lots of fun!

Exploring rhyming words

This week in English we have been exploring rhyming words ahead of writing our own rainforest animal poems next week. We used rhyming trees, starting each tree with a root word and then filling the branches with words that rhymed.

Creating timelines in Guided Reading

This term, Year 4 has been reading Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White. This week we created a timeline mapping all of the events Charlotte has been involved in using our retrieval and summary skills. We then used our prediction skills to guess how we think the book will end.
