Year 4 - Tigers

Our Week in Tigers

Weekly Update (Week ending 18.01.19)

We have been busy this week in Tigers.

In English, we have been looking at twisting traditional fairy tales into our own, hilarious, alternative versions! We have had fun creating our own story of The Three Little Monkeys and The Big Bad Chicken- we even acted it out!

In maths, we have really got to grips with our Fractions topic and seem to be understanding simplifying a lot better now.  

In topic, we used our research skills to explore some non-fiction Roman books.  We worked in learning partners to create beautiful posters depicting one aspect of Roman life.  They have formed a wonderful display in our classroom. 

Next week……...


In English, we will be looking at playscripts- linking back to our traditional tales from the last two weeks.  



In maths, we are continuing our work on fractions.  


Science and Topic

In Science, we will be thinking about the differences between the foods that humans and animals eat.

In Topic, we will be looking at where the Romans settled, highlighting this on our own maps. We will also be looking at Roman Gods and what the Romans believed in. 




Think about the differences between what you eat and what your pets might eat. 



Homework (to be handed in on Wednesday)

We have changed the way we do homework in Lower Key Stage 2 this term.  Children will have a homework book sent home with them.  Inside is a grid (as below), please select one activity to complete per week (this sheet will last until half term).  Please complete this homework in the homework book, alongside weekly spellings and sentences (as before)- also completed in the book. 

One week, homework is a family week- NO HOMEWORK! So no need to record this in the book.  You may choose this option for one very busy week, or when you have a lovely activity planned. Enjoy!
