Weekly News and Looking Ahead

Week 4 in Year 4


This week we have continued to explore the place value of decimals, including dividing 1 and 2 digit numbers by 100. We then applied our knowledge in our end of unit assessment. Next week we will begin our next decimals module, where will we will focus on partitioning decimals, ordering and comparing.  

Year four are continuing to practice their times-tables before the assessment in June.  


This week we have been focusing on the use of emotive language to show how a character is feeling, we applied this learning through a diary entry written in the role of Elliot (the hero of this terms text.) Next week we will begin to apply a range of skills, such as using expanded noun phrases and cohesion as we write a ‘quest’ inspired by the events of ‘Who let the Gods out?’
