What Year 4 will be covering this week: 22nd April 2019. 

 

 

Maths:

This week we will be looking at decimal numbers.  In particular how to make a whole, how to write decimals, comparing decimal numbers, ordering decimal numbers and finding halves and quartres and writing as a decimal.  

 

English:

 

This week we will be looking at the features of historical recounts and how we write them.  We will be linking this to our Topic, Africa.  The children will be learning about extinct and endangered animals and what has caused them to become this.

We will be looking at writing in a chronological order.

Reading for Pleasure:

 

Reading is an important skill and can bring us lots of enjoyment. At Knowl Hill CE Academy we promote reading and want to develop a love of reading for all of our pupils. To encourage this, we award a termly reading certificate to those children who read at least 4 x a week over a 10 week period. Please record any reading in the Partnership book. Any children that have been listened to during this period will be asked for their Parent Partnership book - pleasure ensure these are in school daily.

 

 

 

Here are some websites linked to poetry.  Discuss what they feel the poem means, what they think the author's intended impact on the reader is, how it differs from another poem and whether or not they like the poem.
