P4B Reflective Friday 21.9.18

Here is what we have learned this week

Maths

We have worked hard with our understanding of bigger numbers, looking at thousands and tens of thousands. We have been writing these using digits and words. We have also focused on adding on 10 and 100 to numbers.

Our first bar charts look great, we concentrated on presentation making sure we always use a ruler and that we have a title and sub headings for each axis. Well done P4.

Literacy

In writing we started learning about how to use WOW words to make a boring sentence better. We all had to edit and improve two sentences about our summer.

In spelling this week we carried on using words that end in ‘ing’. We learned about words that finish with an ‘e’. When you add ‘ing’ you have to get drop the ‘e’.          For example hope – hoping.

Other areas

In our new topic we learned about what makes something living. What are the characteristics it needs. We found out more about a good way to remember these. It is MRS NERG, this week we found out the MRS stands for – M – Movement – R- Respiration – S – Sensitivity.

Here is what we have learned this week

Maths

We have played a fun game called addition bingo on the smart board, during this game we came up with lots of strategies for working out sums with a partner and also learned about bridging 10.

We have continued with Data Handling. This week we have begun to collect information and create our own bar charts. We found out that we need a title, also names for the each of the bars and we had to think about a scale.

Literacy

We carried on with our class novel Spud Murphy. We talked about how the author created humour and tried to find out our top 3 funny bits.

In spelling this week we carried on using words that end in ‘ing’. It was tricky because we had to add an extra consonant to the word to keep the vowel short. For example swim – swimming.

We learned how to write the letters u, w and d in cursive this week. We even started to self assess our own work.

Other areas

We learned how to create a line drawing of a moving person, a line drawing has no shading or colouring at all. We added these drawings to our water colour background from last week. They look fab!!

We created a table flag in our new tables, this meant we had to all work together as a team and make sure everyones ideas were included. We had to join our four pictures in the middle perfectly. It was tricky!!

We have continued on with our work on place value, this included sequencing and ordering numbers in hundreds.

We have worked hard on Data Handling, starting with pictograms and moving on to bar charts. Learning how read the information from the chart.

Literacy

We worked on reading comprehension and are learning to find and use the important information. We used this to create a wonderful poster on how to look after a pet.

We started spelling this week using words that end in ‘ing’ and completed an activity called hidden words.

We are really enjoying cursive handwriting and this week learned how to write the letters, e, i, m, n.

Other areas

We learned two different painting skills this week using water colours, one that created a wash on the page and the other using a dabbing technique.

In PE we started basketball, we were learning the skills of passing the ball in two different ways.
