Year 4 Week 07 2015

Karneval
It’s Karneval!  The children looked absolutely brilliant in their costumes and a great deal of imagination was put into their costume. Our Karneval day was extra special as we turned ours into a ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ theme day and a great time was had by all. We spent the morning preparing lots of tasty treats that might be found in Wonka’s factory and then in the afternoon, the children took part in Wonka’s Wacky races!

In Literacy this week, the children have completed their unit of work on newspaper reports. The children planned their own report, trying hard to make sure they included all the features of newspaper reports that we have been learning about. They then completed their ‘HOT Write’, using their plan to write an entire newspaper report.

Mrs Pond-Barrett’s Maths group have been learning how to find unit fractions of 2-digit numbers, (e.g. 1/5 of 40, 1/8 of 24). We have then been finding non-unit fractions of 2-digit numbers, (e.g. 3/5 of 40, 6/8 of 24). Mrs Scannell’s Maths group have been looking through and consolidating the work they have completed this term.
