October 2021 in Year 4

We have had a very busy month in Year 4!

In English, we have been looking at the features of a newspaper report. We enjoyed writing our own newspaper reports about the story of Hansel and Gretel. On Poetry day, we joined in with a live online poetry lesson with lots of other schools.

In Maths, we practised a range of strategies to help us solve addition and subtraction problems. We are also working hard to learn our times tables.

In History, we have thoroughly enjoyed learning about ancient Egypt. We particularly enjoyed learning about mummies and writing in hieroglyphics. For our homework, we made pyramids using a range of materials.

In Art, we have continued to learn about famous artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Georgia O’Keeffe, Salvador Dali and Giuseppe Arcimboldo. We created lots of fantastic artwork inspired by these great artists!
