HISTORY - THE ANGLO-SAXONS and THE VIKINGS

Year 4 had a fantastic day at the Old Hall at Tatton Park. They experienced life during this time period. They learned how to grind wheat to make flour in order to produce flat bread. They learned the importance of creating a shield wall and learned about hunting deer.

MATHS 

This term we will be looking at fractions. So make sure you are using your fraction walls and finding the equivalent fractions.  Learn your times tables and your division facts too. Do visit Times Table Rock stars !  We will be doing statistics and of course addition and subtraction. 

Can you solve this puzzle?

1, 2, 3, 4

 

Using the digits 1, 2, 3 and 4 and +, - , x and ÷ symbols make the numbers from 1 to 30.

Each of the numbers has to be used every time, for example 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 = 10.

Fractions ! Fractions! Fractions!

Some pictures of us creating an equivalent fraction wall in class.

This week in Maths we did some chocolate fraction problem solving. There were three tables; one table had 3 bars of chocolate, another table had 2 bars of chocolate and another table had one bar of chocolate. We tried to work out which was the best table to visit in order for the chocolate to be shared out equally. We had to work logically to share out the chocolate. It definitely needed us to know our times table and division facts.

SHAKESPEARE WEEK and NATIONAL POETRY DAY

 

Year 4 children learned lots this week about the great writer- Shakespeare. Our Shakespeare text was The Tempest. During this week we looked at a style of poetry called Kenning. This style of poetry is extremely old and dates back to the Anglo Saxon and Viking times, our topic. 

We used the Kenning style to write about the Tempest characters.
