Welcome to our year four class page.

We have had a busy week being fantastic Larchfield Learners in year four. In Maths we have been learning about roman numerals, place value and comparing numbers beyond 1000 using < > or =.

In English we read a book called I’ll take you to Mrs Cole. We truly enjoyed this story and found it really funny! We then wrote our own story based on I’ll take you to Mrs Cole. Ask us about our favourite part of the story!

In Topic we have started learning about the Romans. We found out who they were and where they were from. We looked at Mosaics they had in their homes, on the walls and floors. We started to plan and create our own mosaic of our self-portrait.

In science we have been identifying different solids and liquids and have been learning about their properties. 

We chose our school council representatives, it was a tough decision as all the applicants were really enthusiastic and wanted to represent our class. Ask us who we voted for!

Next week in Maths we will be learning how to round numbers to the nearest 10/100/1000. We will also be learning how to times and divide by 10 and 100.

In English we will be reading The Lion and the Unicorn and Little Ships. Both are based on the historical setting of WWII and we will be writing a postcard comparing Dunkirk beach in the 1940’s and Dunkirk beach in the 1960’s.

Thank you for our Harvest Festival donations. We are building up quite a collection in the back of our classroom. Please remember that donations have to be in by Thursday if they are to be counted in our school competition.

Thanks for a brilliant week.
