Welcome to Year 4

In year 4 we have been focusing on non-fiction texts in English. We have looked specifically at both non-chronological reports and newspaper reports. The children have really enjoyed writing their reports about Humpty Dumpty, particularly working on word play and puns. 

In Maths we have been focusing on the place value of numbers and how this changes when we multiply or divide by 10/100. We have also looked at written methods of calculation for addition, subtraction and multiplication.

Our topic for this half term is WW2. The children have really enjoyed learning about the key events of the war and what it must have been like to live in that time. We have spent a lot of time looking at primary and secondary resources to research the given period. The children are now working on writing letters as if they were an evacuee.
