Spring 2, week 1

The year 4 children in school have focussed well. They’ve been able to practise and master various subtraction methods to gain a full understanding of how subtraction works. Their presentation and organisation has really helped them to ensure no mistakes were made and any misconceptions could be easily addressed.

In literacy, the children have had fun looking at a new book about mystery and adventure and considered character descriptions and why they suit this genre of book.

The year 4 IPC topic is on ancient Egypt. This week we have researched and created our own versions of the book of the dead for an ancient Egyptian to find in the afterlife. The children enjoyed staining paper to make it look weathered, then rolling and tying them to make them look like scrolls.
