Year 4 week ending 15.11.19

Year 4 week ending 15th November 2019

This week we have been learning to:

Numeracy – reading information from graphs and drawing bar graphs.

Literacy – we have completed our Roman menus and have been studying the features of newspaper reports.

Science and Technology – we have carefully planned our aquaducts, ensuring we included measurements and identifying the materials needed.

Humanities - this week we have had a lively debate, taking on the roles of different Celtic tribes, deciding whether they should fight the Romans or surrender.  The arguments used by all the children were incredible!

Expressive arts –we have researched how and why Roman mosaics were made.

Welsh - we have been learning new vocabulary, with the focus on what they can see and hear outside.

Health and Well Being - As part of anti bullying week we looked at a short animation called "For the birds" where we talked about what bullying is and different types of bullying. We will continue with this next week.

How you can help at home:

Numeracy –  homework has been given out today on reading information from bar graphs.  

Literacy - choose a newspaper report and read it, then write at least 5 things about it such as what happened, where, when, what the picture is, caption etc.
