Year 4

 

Welcome to Year 4’s Class Page

Autumn Term

We’ve been using Maths equipment in our Maths lessons on multiplication. This has helped us understand and explore what our multiplication statements really mean. We have been using the language of ‘groups of’ to make multiplication and division statements about our 6, 7, and 9 times tables!

 

The children have made some excellent Winter crafts to add to our The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe themed classroom including; snow ball garlands, woodland creatures, 3D trees and paper icicles!

 

We have started a new topic of SOUND in Science this half term.

We used our scientific skills to make predictions about the different types of sounds we would hear in various areas of school. Then we took a walk around school to see which areas were the loudest and explore the different sounds we could hear.
