During Year 4, all children will be required to participate in the multiplication times table check test in June.
The children have been working hard in class to learn their times tables and will continue to do so.
Each week, I will set the children a challenge on TT Rockstar's. It would be appreciated if children could also participate with this challenge as part of their homework.

Ancient Egyptian Day
Today we had so much fun. We came into school dressed up in ancient Egyptian costumes. We had a special visitor, Mr. Warrell, who taught us all about how the ancient Egyptians farmed, got their food, and made tools and we looked at a large range of artefacts. We then got to join in with lots of activities. We played ancient Egyptian games, ground wheat to make flour and we made scarab beetles out of clay.

We enjoyed learning all about the Antarctica on World Earth day. We created a non-chronological report with all the information we had found about the different animals and plants that live there. We planed saplings and made flower bombs.

Today, we had a special visitor in school. We were all really excited to meet the author, Tom Palmer, especially after purchasing some of his books. He told us what inspired him to start writing and what he is passionate about writing about. He showed us some of his plans and told us a little bit about his new book, that will be published soon. We all had lots of questions to ask him and were really pleased that he signed our books.

As part of science week, we made posters about growth. Some of us chose to research human growth and some of us chose to reach plant and animal growth. We enjoyed finding out information about how things grow and we are pleased with how our information posters turned out.

Today in geography, we used atlases to name and locate some of the most well known rivers in the world. We used the index page at the back of the atlas to find the page we needed to identify each river. We were able to identify the continent the river was in and name some of the countries within that continent.
Well done Year 4!
