Walnut Class Term 1 Week 4

We have had another great week of learning in Walnut Class!

This week, in Literacy, we have been learning about how to use and create complex and compound sentences in our writing, using subordinating conjunctions.

Year 4 mathematicians have been showing their greater understanding of place value with numbers up to 10,000. Children have identified missing intervals on a number line and working out how to establish the value of a missing number. Children have also calculated numbers up to 1,000 more or less than a number up to 10,000. Year 3 have been learning about place value up to 1,000 and have been looking at ‘flexible partitioning,’ understanding that there may be more than one way to partition a number.

For our Topic learning, we have learnt how to identify changes in Britain from the early to late Stone Age.

In Science, children have been learning about how to identify the different types of teeth in humans and their simple functions. 

In P.E. children worked in groups to listen to an adult’s instructions to successfully complete a task outdoors. One task involved keeping a ball up in the air between four children; the key was to communicate with each other and use anticipation skills. We have also used the compass directions in our instructions this week.

Reminder – Walnut Class are swimming on Tuesday at Mote Park Leisure Centre. The children are very excited to be going swimming! PE is every Wednesday this term.

Have a good weekend!
