Week beginning: 01.11.2021
This week in Year 4 we have been doing lots of learning around the computing programme Scratch. First, we looked at recognising repetition in everyday life. We thought out songs that have repeated loops in, dances and stories.
Then, we explored count-controlled loops on Scratch. We had to make sure that the coding was written correctly and we could identify how often the count-controlled loop repeated for. Later on, we created our own star pattern using count-controlled loops.
In science this week we looked at identifying different electrical devices. We looked around the class and the school to pick out items that run on electricity.
In PSHE this week we started our new topic, Celebrating Differences. We did our introductory mind maps and thought about the following questions: What is bulling? How can we solve bullying? What judgements do people make? What makes me unique?
Over the term we will be exploring each of these topics in more detail.
In our reading this week we looked at a range of texts about Bonfire Night. We looked at both, short stories and poems. We used our editing skills to correct problems in the texts and used dictionaries to look up the definitions of any words we were unsure of.
This week we were very lucky to use Now Press Play again! This time we listened to a story that linked to our feelings and PSHE. Some of our adults came to join in too! We had so much fun!
