This Week’s Learning


In Topic this week, Year Four have had so much fun designing their own sushi brand, packaging and product. The children thoroughly enjoyed making their own sushi. They particularly enjoyed developing their chopping techniques; the bridge and claw grip. Whilst making their sushi the children were able to comment on how to remain safe and hygienic at all times. At the end of the week, the children enjoyed evaluating their products. This was a great opportunity for them to demonstrate pride in their achievements.

In Maths this week, Year Four have described movements on a grid. They have developed their understanding on using co-ordinates and they did a fantastic job with reading and plotting co-ordinates. Then they extended their learning even further by plotting points of given quadrilaterals. Well done Year Four – you have worked incredibly hard this week.

Topic:

This week we were introduced to our ‘Journey to Japan’ topic through a Japanese hook afternoon. We visited each classroom to experience various Japanese themed activities involving; origami and Japanese currency, language and writing. At the end of the week we came together in groups to create a poster that displayed their new knowledge about Japan.

During science this week, we learnt about circuits. We discussed the components in a circuit and the symbols that represent them when drawn in a diagram. We experimented with the resources and made our own circuits. We discovered that the bulb would only light when attached to a battery. We then tested different materials to find the best conductor of electricity.

Maths:

During maths this week we learnt about different 2D shapes. We focused on triangles and quadrilaterals.

In Topic this week, the children have worked incredibly hard. They have created their own stories based upon ‘The Robot and the Bluebird’. The emotion within the story has been interpreted beautifully, and we have been amazed with the efforts everyone has put into their writing. The children had fun innovating specific parts of the story and we can not wait to share them with the year group! Well done Year Four.
In Maths this week, the children have developed their understanding of angles, lines and irregular shapes. We have been very impressed with the children’s accuracy of specific vocabulary when explaining their answers. Keep up the hard work Year Four!
