Hello, and welcome back to Y4F's Blog of the Week! Firstly, we'd like to welcome a new member to our class -Jack. Already he has been impressing his teachers -well done Jack. It's been a very special day today in school, in fact, all over the country. Yes, today is Children in Need Day. More about that in a little while. First, what have we been upto this week we hear you ask. You didn't ask? Well, we're going to be so bold as to tell you anyway.
In English, we have been looking at more stories from Dragonory. On Monday we read The Clever Wish. This was the story of an unlucky man who cleverly squeezed 4 wishes into the one wish he had been granted by a magical unicorn. Later in the week, we tried to summarise each of the stories we have read so far. Summarising is when you tell the story through just the main points -just like Mr P did with The Clever Wish. He told us what the whole story was about in one sentence. Wow! He has had a little practice though.
Try us out at home on these stories. Ask us to summarise Dragonory, Lazy Jack, The Papaya that Spoke, The Liar, or Callum's favourite -Jack Foretells the Future. You'll be really impressed -and if we summarise well, it should only take a few sentences to tell you what the whole story was about.
We have to say, Maths has been really exciting this week. Mr Price introduced us to the `short method for multiplication'. Wow....we took to it like a duck to orange sauce. We have been calculating 2 digit numbers multiplied by a 1 digit. See if you can complete these correctly. If you are struggling ask us for help -we'll show the way.
