Year 4, Our Journey So Far....
Year 4 have had a great term back at school. In maths, we have been working hard on our place value and reminding ourselves how to do column methods for addition and subtraction. In literacy we have been looking at Escape from Pompeii by Christina Balit and working on building up our writing again. We have been describing the city and the eruption of Vesuvius. We had lots of amazing expanded noun phrases to describe the ash cloud and the lava exploding out of the volcano. Linked to this we have been looking at what it is like living in Chile, where there are around 2000 volcanoes. We even made some volcanoes and Mr Kirke showed the children how to make them erupt using baking powder and vinegar!
Every morning the children in Year 4 take their name pencil and put it on the emotion they are feeling that day.
Our author in focus this term is Christina Balit who wrote Escape from Pompeii, our class book.
Children in Y4 completed a ‘Me as a Reader’ activity.
