Year 4 - Heron Class
Week Beginning 16th October
We are continuing our focus on formal methods in mathematics, and are now working on column subtraction. The column methods provide quick, easy and reliable ways to carry out calculations – we have all been excited at being able to apply concepts learned with tens and units to much larger numbers – and never having to carry out a more difficult a calculation than 18 – 9 or 9+9.
This week, we used the apple tree outside our classroom window to inspire our artistic endeavours. We watched a couple of videos where artists demonstrated the techniques involved in using pastels and water colours. We also cut the apples in half and used them to print designs.
Half Term Homework
During the first week back after half term, each child will have a two-minute slot to tell us all something of interest. This could be something they did over half term or merely a subject in which they are interested. They can use props to help them if they wish. Holiday homework is to prepare this.
