We have had a fantastic year so far in Y4. Lots of exciting things have been happening and we have really enjoyed our learning.

In maths we have been learning about 3D shapes and their properties as well as difficult decimals!

In literacy we have been improving our story writing skills. We are adding features into our writing that make our sentences sound fabulous! We are using conjunctions, speech, relative clauses, super sentence starters and figurative language.

Out topic is Where Are We? We have been learning about Stocksbridge 100 years ago, development of settlements and how to locate countries, counties and continents in an atlas. We even had a special visitor who works at Stocksbridge Tata Steel, Thank you Mr Cherry!

PE has been fantastic this year! We have been learning some tricky new gymnastic skills and we have been going swimming once a week in Chapeltown. This has been brilliant as we have been building our confidence in the pool.

We have been Super Scientists this term and learning all about measuring temperatures, insulators and conductors.
