Y4 TASC - Model Tudor Houses

posted 4 Nov 2018, 04:25 by Richard Hanks

In the last week of the first Autumn half term, Y4 worked together to plan and build model Tudor houses using the TASC system. We first got to know a family and their staff so we knew they sort of house that was required. We then looked at examples of surviving Tudor houses to see the styles of building they used so we could be historically accurate.

The building phase took the longest and was the stickiest process: at least it wasn't traditional wattle and daub, black tar and lime-wash!

After the construction was complete we imagined selling our houses. For this we combined our Maths measurement skills and our persuasive writing methods we have used in English.

All the end results looked great and we plan to use them in a new Y4 display for everyone to enjoy.

Outdoor Maths

posted 17 Oct 2018, 08:08 by Richard Hanks

On a lovely Autumn day, we got outside to do some Maths using natural resources.

First we gathered items to represent ones, tens, hundreds, thousands and ten-thousands. We then used these to make different numbers. Finally, we set up addition and subtraction calculations for others to solve.

It was great to see the children using their knowledge and skills from the classroom in the outdoor setting and enjoying the environment.

Welcome to Year 4 - Spellings!

Thanks to all the children in year 4 who have started the new school year so well. It has been great to see everyone dedicated to their learning already. 

We have started with some reviews of place value in Maths. In English, we have begun reading and writing stories with historical settings, mainly Tudor because this is our topic. We are excited about the trip to Hardwick Hall on Friday 14th September, where we will find out exactly why our topic is called 'More Glass than Wall'.

Because we will be away from school on Friday, we have a short spelling assessment on Thursday. The rule and words we will look at are below, and a file to download is even further below if you need it. We will practice these in school through the week, but extra learning at home definitely makes all the difference.
