At the end of the term we learnt the story of the Little Red Hen. The children spent time learning the story from a story map, drew their own and then recounted the story.
Year 4 have been busy in their art lessons this week, creating their own Aztec-inspired artwork using oil pastel and watercolour.
Today we designed our own sky scrapers for Queen’s Hills. Mrs James told us that every day for a week, we could add two windows. In pairs we designed our sky scrapers and wrote addition and multiplication sentences to find out how many windows we would have built by the end of the week. We found out that:
2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 14 windows
7 x 2 + 14 windows
In the last week, we have delved deeper into the characters and settings in Shadow of the Minotaur and have created some excellent descriptive pieces from this stimulus in our English lessons.We enjoyed our Maths Cafe on Monday too, where we all tackled mathematical problems themed around looking after some unusual pets!

This week our children enjoyed problem solving using the part part whole model.
