In Literacy this week, we have been writing stories using our imaginations. The children have been working on skills such as; writing speech using the correct punctuation and fronted adverbials. All of the children's stories incorporated them finding a magical ring and then describing what the ring would do, where it would take them and the adventure that they would go on. The children have all made lots of progress in their writing over the past few weeks. As you can tell, we are very proud year 4 staff.
This week in Maths, we have been learning about fractions. The children have used their times table knowledge to aid them in this. Practicing TT Rockstars really helps the children throughout all of our Maths lessons.
Some brilliant home learning about fractions from Lottie!
Personal, Social, Health and Emotional Development
Today during our afternoon session, we spoke to the children about puberty. The children learned about the changes that occur during puberty by watching an educational video, which depicted how both the male and female bodies will change.
This was followed by a discussion, where the children were encouraged to ask any questions that they had. The children learned about the different parts of the body using the correct terminology and the importance of good hygiene routines during the puberty period.
The children demonstrated excellent knowledge throughout the session and we were incredibly proud of how mature and sensible the class were while taking part in these sensitive discussions.
Following this lesson, your child may wish to speak to you about what they have learned. We have reminded the children to always be respectful when discussing these matters.
