Year 4 have settled well this half term. In Maths, we have been looking at place value and how to use the column method to add and subtract two four digit numbers with exchanging. In English, we have been reading ‘Operation Gadgetman’ by Malorie Blackman. The children have written their own narrative which included their own invention getting stolen as the dilemma of the story. In Topic, we have studied the digestion system which involved the children creating their own digestive system to explore how food travels through our body and why it is important. We have also studied the artist Frida Kahlo where we wrote a non-chronological report about her as well as creating our own artwork inspired by her surrealist style.
