This week we have continued our work in decimals looking at dividing numbers by 10 and 100. In History, we have looked at how the Vikings lived once they settled in Britain and in Science we got the circuits equipment out and began learning how to make a complete electrical circuit. We finished our poetry unit this week, looking at some different styles and even song lyrics. On Wednesday, we created our own tongue twisters. Have a look below, can you say them all?

Tuesday 4th May - Friday 7th May 2021


Reader of the Week - Rowan

Achievers of the Week - Freya and Rowan


Despite it only being a four day week, we have been working hard in Year 4! In English we have started looking at Myths and reading through a Viking myth to prepare us for our writing next week. We continued our work on Electricity and looked at what makes a circuit complete or incomplete. In RE we learned about the pilgrimage of Hajj and in D&T we sewed our pencil cases. In Maths, we are getting towards the end of our decimal work. Take a look at Ayaan and Shanay's pieces on making a whole and comparing decimals.

Achievers of the Week -  Dylan, Eleftherios, Amelia D


It has been a brilliant week in 4S with lots of learning being done. We have finished our unit on Decimals in maths, looking at ordering, rounding decimal numbers to the nearest whole number and looking at half and quarters as decimals. In English, we are beginning to plan our endings to the Viking myth 'The Hammer and The Cross'. We focused on using fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases and direct speech. We enjoyed our History lesson earlier this week. We learned about 'Danegeld' which was the practise of paying the Viking raiders to stay away. We looked at a poem by Rudyard Kipling and then created our own versions about Danegeld. Have a read through work from Lavae, Zaynab, Jasper, Judah, Amelia A, Shanay, Mia and Amelia D who were very proud of their poems!

This half term has flown by! And it has been a fun (and busy!) week to end it on. In English, we have finished our myths deciding whether Ansgar (the Christian monk) would be saved or killed by Odin, God of War. In Maths, we have looked at interpreting data in bar graphs and pictograms as well as learning about line graphs. In History, we used our research and historical interpretation skills to create a fact file about the Viking Gods, Odin and Thor. In Science, we got the electrical circuit equipment out and investigated which materials were conductors of electricity and which were insulators. On Wednesday, the whole school enjoyed an 'Art Day' where we got to showcase our work and perform songs, poetry and dances to the year group. 4S had been learning the song 'Blackbird' by the Beatles in Music this half term and we sung it to 4H with some of us having a solo! Take a look at some of the pictures of the day:
