This half term Year 4 have been reading Shackleton’s Journey. The children have enjoyed learning about Shackleton and his crew’s heroic mission, and it has been a great opportunity for lots of cross curricular learning. We have linked our topic work to this text and have been finding out about Antarctica and the animals that inhabit there. We are looking forward to our trip to The Deep in January to meet the penguins!

In Maths we have been learning how to use the column method to add and subtract. We have also looked at rounding, inverse and solving word problems.

Please continue to read with your child on an evening and encourage them to complete their reading journals.

Thank you

Mrs McCann and Mrs Barrett

This half term we are focusing on diary writing. We are enjoying reading the beautifully illustrated book “Journey”. We will be focusing on using conjunctions and expanded noun phrases in our sentences.
