Welcome back to the Year 4 Blog.
This week in Maths, we have been concentrating on Statistics (or data handling). We have had lots of fun with this. We have used voting stations to find out what our favourite lessons are, and what are favourite snacks are.
Once we had voted, we constructed a tally chart, and then a bar chart to show the results. Then, we answered some questions –or, interrogated the data. Take a look at some examples of our work below.
In English, we had a go at writing some poetry. We started by looking at a picture of the sun. Our teacher asked us to think up describing words and phrase. Here’s what we came up with.
A yellow trailing staircase to the heavens
A dragon’s eye burning in the sky
The burning heart of the sky
A porthole to another world
It rose as red as blood
An erupting volcano
The ghost of the sun
Orange clouds that look like lava
Like a rising tornado
Brightly coloured pocket watch
Brightly coloured disco ball
Sand being scattered (clouds)
Clouds drifting like a desert landscape
Then we used our ideas to write a short poem about the sun.
Take a look at some examples of our poems.
