In literacy year 4 are continuing to explore the text 'The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane'. The children have been planning their own chapter following the discovery that Edward has been thrown away.
Next week they will be writing this up in full with a beginning, middle and end, adding powerful description and speech for the characters.
Arithmetic and Maths
This half term we are focussing on addition and subtraction, using the column method. Each week your child will practice consolidating their skills and has the opportunity to do some extra maths at home if they wish.
This week children have been learning about symmetry, using mirrors to look at reflections and drawing their own reflected shapes on a grid.
Year 4 spellings
Next weeks spellings will be focussed on the prefix 'auto'.
Children will have these in their planner to practice at home ready for their weekly spelling test.
