Year 4

What we are learning this week:

 

 

Autumn 1, Week 5

English: Narrative

We have been improving our sentences with adjectives and prepositions and writing expanded noun phrases. We’ve also been looking at settings, and describing them using the five senses. Finally, we’ve begun to look at the rules of speech and the use of commas in particular.

  • At home, you could practise writing a conversation between two or more people, or write your own setting description.

Maths: Addition

We have been learning how to add three and four digit numbers, including exchanging where the column adds up to more than ten. We’ve also used this knowledge to complete missing number calculations and solve reasoning problems about money etc.

  • At home, you can practise more addition, with or without exchanging.

Home Learning ideas for next week

  • Find a reading book to read together at home
  • Further practise at adding numbers up to four digits
  • Practise times tables

  • At home, you could prepare for next week by thinking about how to describe a setting using your senses.

 

Maths: Place Value

We have been learning about negative numbers by looking at thermometers and diagrams of the sea, before moving on to look at Roman numerals (numbers to 100).

  • At home, you can practise writing a simple sentence and checking it has the correct punctuation depending on what type of sentence it is.

We have been reminding ourselves about the value of each digit in a number. We have been using diennes to represent numbers, then practising writing the number in both numerals and words and partitioning them. We’ve also revised how to round numbers to the nearest ten.
