Year 4

Youth Friday Collective Worship

Youth Friday Collective Worship

On Friday, the children from Reception and Year 4 gathered outdoors in the Gospel Garden to celebrate Youth Friday together. The theme of this year’s Youth Friday was ‘Together’. The children thought about lockdown, when we weren’t able to be together and the joy of being reunited. We have thought about how we keep in touch with our friends and family who we do not get to see. One way of being ‘together’ is when we pray. On Friday afternoons we gather as a school, in our bubbles, during Collective Worship time. We listened to a reading from the Book of Sirach that reminded us that our friends are special treasures. The children in year 4 prepared prayers for our Collective Worship. All of the children created their own rainbow to add to the focal point, This week we will all take a rainbow home to remind us that we can always be together in prayer and when listening to the word of God.

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.

Maths – Factor pairs

Maths – Factor pairs

This week in our multiplication and division topic we have been learning all about factor pairs using multi blocks. We learned that a factor is a number that divides into another number exactly and without leaving a remainder, then used factor rainbows to write down our answers.

Writing interesting sentences using conjunctions

This week in English we had a great lesson using our newly learned writing skills to write interesting sentences. We used conjunctions (in the middle and at the beginning of sentences) and came up with some wonderful adverbial phrases and adjectives. Mrs Myers was amazed!
