We have settled quickly in to Great Owls and are enjoying the challenge of year 4. Our classroom is looking bright and colourful thanks to the children's wonderful art.
We have had a busy week exploring ELECTRICITY! Great owls worked out how to light up a bulb and talked about the importance of having a complete circuit. If you would like to follow up our learning at home, it would be worthwhile investigating the appliances in your house that use electricity.
In English we have been learning how to write an effective description using interesting adjectives, verbs and adverbs. The children have come up with some brilliant similes including; 'as cold as an ice pop', 'as soft as a kitten' and 'as argumentative as my brother'.
In maths this week we have been looking at place value. We have been able to identify the value of each digit in a 4 digit number and compare and order numbers.
Remember- when using < and >, the crocodile's mouth always faces the biggest number.
