In Topic this week, the children have had great fun learning about Finn the shark and his unfortunate adventures. They enjoyed developing their understanding of the story by creating actions and drawing images to summarise the main parts. Then, the children planned their own versions using story maps. The Year Four teachers are so impressed with the children’s work this week, they have thoroughly enjoyed sharing some of the stories already!
The children worked hard to incorporate many features of their writing this week, to ensure their stories were entertaining. They specifically focused on prepositions, fronted adverbials, speech and expanded noun phrases. Well done Year Four you have worked incredibly hard on your brilliant stories.
In Maths this week, the children have developed their understanding of the distributive law. At first, most children found this quite challenging to completely understand as there are several steps to complete. However, with hard work, the children demonstrated resilience and perseverance, as they were able to successfully understand what this meant and were able to solve a number of calculations using this method.
