Hello and welcome to Year 4 Class Blog for 19-20. We hope you have had a great break.
This week really has proved to be an exciting time. The children are in their new classrooms with their new teachers. They have settled in really well -already impressing their teachers. Parents should feel proud.
In English we have been looking at expanded noun phrase. A noun is a naming word. They name things like people, places, objects and creatures. So, words like boy, girl, park, town, pencil, pen, cat and dog are all nouns. A phrase is a group of words. An expanded noun phrase is a group of words that gives more information about the man. Like this:
the tall man from across the road
the wild, battle scarred lion of the savannah
Later, it the week we used what we had learnt to write a verse for a poem similar to one by Kit Wright. The poem is called The Magic Box. Take a look.
In Maths, we have been busy looking at place value. We have been partitioning numbers, recombining numbers and recognising the value of digits based on their place within a number. Say, would you like to try?
So, have a look at this number -7832 The 8 is underlined. What is it worth? Well, it helps sometimes if you read the number. So, seven thousand, eight hundred and thirty-two. So, the 8 is worth 800.
Do you think you can tell what these digits are worth?
Well, that’s all for now folks -see you next week.
