Thankfully we were able to get out into the playground and perform a thorough invertebrate hunt. The class found all sorts of creepy crawly creatures including: an earwig, several worms, a baby caterpillar, a tiny slug, spiders, beetles and snails. Everyone worked well in their pairs and used a classification key to identify anything that they were unsure of. 4FM are becoming quite the investigative bunch!
In maths we are looking at Roman numerals. We have been learning 'the rules' to help us crack the code and figure out what the different letters represent in modern number form. Everyone did a great job of pairing up the numbers and Roman numeral equivalents in this task today:

This week we started our Year 4 music lessons. Our topic for this term is Mamma Mia and today we learnt lots of ABBA facts as well as learning the song Mamma Mia. Can you remember what a bridge in a song does? Where does it appear in a song?

As part of our topic we have been looking at the layers of the rainforest. Here we are researching which layer of the rainforest different animals live in. Which rainforest animals do you know?

This week we have been looking at similes, metaphors and personification for description. We worked together to sort the different devices into groups and then created description about a variety of animals ready for poetry writing.

Today we spent some time choosing new books and enjoying a spot of reading in our comfy library. We're looking forward to improving our reading skills whilst in Year 4 and discovering new and exciting stories, facts, poetry and more.
