The Year 4 children have been working extremely hard this week across all subjects.
In English, we have been writing letters and creating guides to attract tourists to the Cornish Village, Zennor. The children have been doing a fantastic job of using adverbials and fronted adverbials this week to provide extra detail about the verbs used. They have also been working on and including possessive apostrophes in their writing.
I have been so impressed with their enthusiasm and efforts in Maths this week, for our Addition & Subtraction unit. They have really got the hang of using column addition and column subtraction and are now beginning to apply that in problem solving activities.
Over the last few weeks, the children have been working on creating some optical illusion art, where they have measured, marked and then scored card to bend it before merging two different pictures onto the same piece of card. As you can see from the pictures below, this gives the illusion of two different pictures, depending on whether you are looking from the right or left hand side. This was a really tricky and fiddly project but the children persevered and their results are amazing!
As we near the end of our unit on the Romans in History, we have been exploring the different gods and goddesses they believed in before Constantine's dream.
In Science, we have been investigating which substances are difficult to define as either a Solid, Liquid or Gas and how certain elements of their properties can be manipulated. Hence why many of your children came home on Monday and told you that it may not be possible to walk on water, but it is possible to walk on custard!
