Week beginning: 08.11.2021
This week in Year 4 we have been writing to persuade! We had our own Trade Tables in class this week, we heard a sales pitch and had to decide whether we would buy the invention. Then we all wrote our own sales pitches to try to persuade readers to buy our Dyson Project inventions! We made sure we included all the persuasive features of writing to ensure we could really convince other people to buy our creations. We included rhetorical questions, expanded noun phrases, promises to the reader and statistics to influence people to buy the inventions!
In maths this week we have been learning all about perimeter. We learnt how to find the perimeter of a range of shapes. We had to make sure we counted the lines all around the shape, being careful not to miss any out! Later on this week, we did a maths investigation to find the perimeter of our names! We had to draw each letter and find the perimeter, then we added each letters perimeter together to find the total of our names. We wanted to find out which child's name had the greatest perimeter!
In PSHE this week we continued our learning of the 'Celebrating Difference' topic. This week we learnt about making assumptions about people and what influences our judgements. We made quick assumptions about people based on their appearances, then we thought about what influenced our assumptions. Lots of us picked up on the news, social media and 'Influencers' as factors that influenced our assumptions!
In RE this week we continued our learning of Judaism. This week we looked at Passover and the Seder Plate. We learnt what Passover celebrates and when it occurs. Then we researched what each item on the Seder Plate represents.
