Magnificent Maths  

This term in maths we will be focussing on fractions specifically; fractions of amounts in whole numbers and measure (1/4 of 1litre, 3/5 of 1.5m etc.), equivalent fractions and creating equivalent fractions by multiplying and dividing the denominator and the numerator, ordering fractions and comparing fractions (which is bigger 3/4 of 5/8?) After fractions, we will be moving on to multiplying and diving using a formal written method.

Below will be the next set of areas that we will be covering over the next 5 weeks:

  • Comparing and ordering angles
  • Co-ordinates
  • Position and direction

Recommended book list- Year 4

 Exciting English!

 We have really enjoyed reading The Butterfly Lion. Please no spoilers as we are just about to read the ending. We are going to be writing our own version of  the story and we are very excited about it! In this unit, we are really going to be focusing on 

  • adjectives 
  • fronted adverbials 
  • expanded noun phrases 
  • speech
  • paragraphing

For our last English unit, we looked at a book about fantastical castles by Colin Thompson. We then wrote a non-chronological report about our own fantastical castle.

Kingswood

We had the best time at Kingswood. We hope you like the pictures!
