Weekly update – 16th October 2015

It’s been another busy week in Year 4!  We have been learning about conversation poems in Literacy, how to make travel brochures using persuasive language in our topic lessons and we have been been making digital travel brochures on the iPads using Book Creator.  In our maths lessons we have learnt how to estimate, measure and convert lengths with accuracy.  Our Welsh lessons involved us learning how to write about holidays and we found out about a country called Lesotho.  Mr O’Hara is busy organising a Skype video chat with a school in Lesotho!  We also had a chance to take part in a Samba lesson which was VERY loud but lots of fun.  Take a look at some of our pictures below.

Holiday brochures

We have been busy this afternoon making our own holiday brochures.  We used lots of features of persuasive writing including:

  • Superlatives
  • bossy verbs
  • alliteration
  • slogans
  • questions

Monday 12th October 2015 – Pen Licences!

A number of children in Year 4 have been granted their pen licence today.  This means that they have been working hard to improve their presentation using joined up handwriting.  All of the other children are working hard to get their own pen licence and we are aiming for all children to receive their pen licence by the end of the Autumn Term.

Friday 9th October 2015 – Weekly update

It’s been another busy week in Year 4!  Mr O’Hara returned to class following a dislocated knee and we have been working very hard!  In our maths lessons we have been learning to tell the time.  In Literacy we have been looking at persuasive language and completing a piece of writing persuading people to visit a holiday destination.  Our topic work has been all about tourism and how it impacts a location in good and bad ways.  We have also presented our homework projects.  Take a look at us presenting our projects.  The other children will be presenting their projects next week.

Here we are working hard to up-level sentences in our Literacy lesson.

Class visitors of the fluffy kind!

Year 4 had some visitors in school on Thursday.  We had two rabbits, Buster and Cookie, in our classroom.  All of the children had a chance to stroke the rabbits.  A big thank you to Mrs Walker for this treat!

Trip to The Travel House, Llandeilo.

Last Wednesday, Year 4 made the short journey to The Travel House in Llandeilo.  We found out how to book a holiday and Denise and Emma answered our questions about holidays and travelling.  The children have written a recount of their trip in today’s Big Write.

Take a look at some pictures of our recent trip to The Travel House.

Big Write

We have been working very hard to improve our writing in Year 4.  Our writing can be improved by working on the four areas of VCOP:

V – Vocabulary

C – Connectives

O – Openers

P – Punctuation

Here we are being ‘VCOP detectives’

Our theme – Autumn Term 2015
