It's been an exciting week! As well as all our usual learning, we had a brilliant Friday celebrating Vocabulary in the school. As well as guessing our words (and coming up with amazing synonyms for each), we made our own class dictionary, created a vocabulary board game and had a go at designing a vocabulary mascot for the school. Thank you so much to all who dressed up - the thought and effort that was put in was fantastic! Take a look through the pictures below, can you guess all the words we were?

We've had a great week in 4S. In our learning, we wrote an amazing diary entry as the Lighthouse Keeper using exciting vocabulary and learning how to show emotions through writing. In Guided Reading, we focused on scanning as a skill to help us with retrieval questions. We learnt about the Jewish festival, Purim, in RE and we showed great maturity when discussing prejudices such as anti-Semitism. In History, we learnt about 'push' and 'pull' factors that caused the Anglo-Saxon tribes to migrate. And, in Science, we got out the electrical components and learned how to make a complete circuit.


Miss van de Stouwe would also like to mention how well we are all doing on our times tables too - keep up the hard work! 

Don't forget to check Spelling Shed for the new spelling rules we are covering in Year 4. If you click on 'More Lists' once you are logged in, you will be able to find them all in there.

It has been a fantastic week of learning in 4S! We're trying out new groups in Maths to help us with our multiplication and division work. Both Miss van de Stouwe and Mrs Holmes are so pleased with the work we have completed in factor pairs and multiplying 3 numbers. In English, we have been using the animation 'The Lighthouse' to help us write a scene setting description. Our challenge was to try using the weather as a way of building suspense. In R.E., we looked at the festival of Passover to understand why it is important to those who follow Judaism. We started our topic of Anglo-Saxons this week too, looking at where the different tribes came from and where they settled in Britain. Finally, in Science, we began looking at electricity. We learned that different electrical appliances need A/C and D/C circuits to work. Take a look at our work to learn more:
