Year 4 have had a very busy half term! We have been learning about the Smashing Saxons and in particular what village life was like. The next topic we will be moving onto is the Vicious Vikings!
In Maths, we covered multiplication, looking at patterns in the times tables and using the grid method to solve more difficult multiplication questions.
In English, each child created their own machine and wrote explanations on how their machine would work. Following on from this we moved onto legends, and they wrote a new chapter for a Robin Hood legend.
Science has been great fun too! Year 4 created their own water cycles in a bag and have learnt all about the digestive system, even creating their own practical version of a digestive system.
