Year 4 have been problem solving
True or false - 6 x 20 is the same
as 6 x 2 x 10?
We used concrete resources to try out our thinking and help us test our ideas.
Our Rainforest Topic
Golden Eagles have been busy learning about the rainforest this term after reading the book The Great Kapok Tree.
We wrote discussions about whether deforestation should be banned.
We wrote setting descriptions.
We used pastels to create pictures of endangered species.
Our Weather Station
Part of our geography this year is to monitor the environment so year 4 have set up a weather station. The children decided they would like to show the rest of the school what the weather is like every day so have created a weather station display.
Every day one of the children (usually the child of the day) uses a special tablet, which links to the weather station in the quad.
They take the information from it and record it on our special weather voice recorder so other children can hear a daily weather forecast.
This is also shown on our display in the corridor.
