We've had a fantastic start to the term immersing ourselves into Viking times. The children have settled in well as we start on our Year 4 adventure.
Core Subject Infomation
The children have had a brilliant start within Maths. This week we will be continuing place value looking at negative numbers, rounding up and down and finding 1000 more and less than a number.
We've had a fantastic start to our literacy topic researching all different facts about the Vikings, including everything from how their boats are made to what they eat for dinner. Within Literacy this week we will continue to research Vikings in order to create our own fact-files.
To support our literacy the children will be dissecting fact-files and developing key skills such as skimming, scanning and inference.
