Whitby's Lane, Winsford, CW7 2LZ

Wow! Sycamore class have amazed me once again with their commitment to online learning! Keep up the good work Year 4.

This week the children have engaged with a range of activities.

In Maths the children have been looking at solving problems involving money. Each day the children have focused on a different operation such as multiplication, division, addition or subtraction. Then to challenge the children even further they were given multi-step problems where the operation was not always obvious. They have really impressed me with their determination to solve difficult problems. Next week we will be moving onto Mass.

In English we have been familiarising ourselves with myths and legends. We have been looking at the key features and their purpose in the writing. We have explored lots of new words and phrases that will really help us when we come to write our own myth narrative. Next week we will be exploring the writer hints…

Our class novel– This week we finished our class novel- Billy and the Minpins- The children summarised the story using a comic strip tool online! They picked out the key parts of the story and displayed them through drawings, clipart and captions! We have just started our new class novel ‘The Queen of the falls” we are looking forward to finding out whether our main character will carry out the daring task of braving Niagara falls in a barrel!

Well done for another impressive week Sycamore! Remember to keep uploading pictures of your work onto google classroom! If you need any support with this please do ask.

Best wishes,

Miss Leonard.
