Week beginning: 13.09.2021
This week in Year 4 we have continued our learning on the Stone Age!
In history we learnt all about Stone Age homes and weapons. We learnt about Stone Henge, how it was made and researched what is could have been used for. We even got to create mini versions of Stone Henge out of bourbon biscuits!
In our reading lessons this week we have started reading the book 'Ug: Boy Genius of the Stone Age' by Raymond Briggs. We have thought about how the characters might be feeling and reasons why they made certain decisions. We have made predictions about what we think will happen next in the story.
In our writing lessons we have started writing a story to entertain all about the Stone Age. We have made sure we have included expanded noun phrases and fronted adverbials in our stories to make them engaging and entertaining.
In our science lesson this week, we have continued our learning on sound. This week we were investigating how sound travels through different mediums (solids, liquids and gases). We tapped pens together in the air and thought about how clear the sound was. We then tapped pens on the desks whilst our ear was on the table to see if we could hear the sound travel through a solid.
In PSHE this week we learnt about becoming a class team. We thought about the differences between including and excluding. We discussed how we can make everyone in our classes feel valued and created a mindmap of our ideas. We then wrote down 9 key qualities we felt like were important for being a good team. We organised these into a diamond 9 based on their level of importance.
