In maths this week, Year 4 have been using their knowledge of coordinates to create some festive pictures!
Our Class Trip to St. Albans Abbey
Year 4 had a great time learning about St Alban and Christian worship. We wrote our own poems entitled 'A Time For...' and in the afternoon we created our own clay tiles based on patterns and symbols we had seen around the Abbey.
We bought lots of Pudsey wrist bands and donated £1 to wear spotty clothes on Friday.
We even got to dance the conga with Pudsey himself!
In English this week, Year 4 have been writing their own riddles about fruit and vegetables!
Can you solve some of our riddles?
During Science Week, Year 4 were creating their own lava lamps!
Something very strange happened at Gade Valley School!
The children became detectives and investigated a crime that had taken place in our school hall!
They interviewed witnesses and created wanted posters to help find the suspect. They then wrote newspaper articles about the events that took place.
Spellings : Following our spelling scheme, new spellings will be given out on Monday at the beginning of each new unit. The children will have two weeks to learn their spellings and they will be tested at the end of the second week (these will be based on patterns covered in our phonics/spelling lessons).
Homework activities : Given out on Fridays, for handing in by the following Wednesday.
Reading : It is important that a range of texts are read at home and try to do this every day. Whilst reading with your child, I would encourage you to draw attention to: punctuation, grammar, sentence structures, vocabulary choices and the organisation of writing (i.e. paragraphing and layout).
