This week we have continued with our place value learning. We looked at ways in which we can represent numbers in different ways and how we can write numbers using words. You can practice this at home too using the following structure…
Finally, we moved onto ordering and comparing numbers using symbols < > and =.
Next week we will be looking at addition and subtraction. We will look at developing our understanding of both formal and written methods.
This week we we will be continued with our ‘Here We Are’ project. We have focused on social justice and explored the importance of diversity and tolerance in the world. The children have explored ways in which we can celebrate our own differences and understand how and why we are special and unique. Finally, we created a postcard to ‘Planet Earth’ about the ways in which we can help sustain for future generations.
Next week we will launching our Iron Man text with a surprise arrival from someone…
Science – we have been learning about what an electrical circuit is. We know that a circuit needs energy in order to work and must be closed in order for electricity to flow through. We had a go at making our own circuit and enjoyed asking lots of questions!
PSHE – We looked at developing understanding of different emotions and how they are demonstrated
Computing – We had a go at logging back into Google Classroom and had a go at our flashback Friday using a Kahoot quiz! We had great fun!

The Year 4 Book Blog is run by our Hazelwood Year 4 pupils. Children who read 4 or more times per week are put into a random draw on a Friday and the chosen child from each class is given the opportunity to add to our Year 4 book blog on the school website. The selected children can review any book they wish but have to have read it all the way through! They are then invited to type directly onto the school website and click ‘update’ to watch their review ‘go live!’. We encourage all children to read at least 4 times per week in year 4 and celebrate all reading whether it be a newspaper, magazine or school reading book.
