Year 4 News

This week in Year 4 we have completed out diaries in our English sessions and have looked at how we use determiners. We had our independent write this week too with a focus on The Lion King and have been focusing on using and punctuating speech correctly. We also learnt a lot about Nelson Mandela in our reading sessions and have learnt about why he was arrested and what he stood up for. As part of our multiplication and division unit within maths, we have been looking at multiples, writing division and multiplication facts for the 3, 6 and 9 times table and have explored the connections between them. Continuing on our unit on teeth and digestion, this week we have looked at the different types of teeth and the different functions they have. In art, we have explored movement with figures and have done this through observing African dancers, using lines to show movement. On Thursday we tried our hands at karate and had a great session practising balance and control of our bodies.
