Welcome back to the Year 4 Blog.
This week in English we have been busy researching and writing reports on Rio de Janeiro. Rio sounds like an amazing place to visit. Our teachers told us if they could afford the bus fare that that's where they would take us on a school trip. Though we're not too sure.
Take a look at some of our work below.
In Maths we have been looking at shapes. We started by looking at quadrilaterals -their properties and identified them. A quadrilateral is a 4 sided, 2D shape. Some of these shapes have specific properties and names. So, things like a square is a quadrilateral. It's properties (what makes it special) all four sides are equal length and all four angles are 90 degrees. It also has two sets of parallel lines. Check out this quadrilateral game here.
Then, we moved onto triangles. There are 3 types of triangles. Equilateral triangle where all sides and angles are the same. A Isosceles triangle that has two sides and two angles the same. Finally, a Scalene triangle where none of the sides or angles are the same.
Why not try your hand at spotting the different triangles here?
See you next time.
