What Year 4 will be covering this week: 22nd April 2019.
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.
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.
We will be reading Journey to the River Sea this half term. Children will be asked a variety of questions whilst we are reading. We will also use this book to add to our vocabulary wall to extend children's vocabulary knowledge.
