4CB Blog – 20/10/17 October 22, 2017

Posted by Chris Bennett in : Uncategorized , trackback

We have been busy in Year 4 as ever this week!

In English we finally finished our reports on the Roman Empire and they are sounding great. We then used our reports to create a spoken report. Before we did this, we looked at some great public speakers from history and analysed what they did so well. We then used that to plan our own report. On Friday, we then recorded them and they are all brilliant!

In Maths, we have been applying all the knowledge we have learnt over the last few weeks to answer a variety of questions. It has required all children to use their reasoning skills and make them think about and apply what they have learnt.

In Topic, we were looking at why the Romans were never able to takeover Scotland (or Caledonia as it was called then). The children really had to use their historical skills to deduce these reasons. It was a very interesting lesson, with both children and myself learning lots!

We had a fantastic Science lesson on Wednesday looking at the water cycle. However, it did not stay completely on subject as children had so many different questions about the world to ask. We discussed everything from why there are rainbows to how earthquakes happen to why we have winters and summers. Both myself and the children thoroughly enjoyed it and it showed that 4CB is a class full of children fascinated about the world around them.

Next week will be an assessment week. This means that children will be sitting a range of different tests to see exactly what level they are in Reading, Spelling and Grammar and Maths. The children do not need to worry about the tests. It is just to allow teachers to see where children are at and what needs to be taught this year.

Our star of the week this week was Laaibah. She always shows such dedication to her learning and is a true role model for all students.
