Learning and Achieving Together


Welcome to Team Citron!

Your Classteacher is Miss O'Toole.

Your Teaching Assistants are Miss Blackwell and Mrs N Pearson Childs.


In English this week, we made our final edits to our Mini Rabbit stories before looking at a new text called 'The King who Banned the Dark.' We have started to use persuasive devices as we plan a speech about banning the dark which we will write next week.


In Maths this week we have been revising how we multiply 2 and 3 digit numbers by a 1 digit number. We have used this knowledge to secure our understanding of the formal method of multiplication. In Maths next week, we will be revising a formal method for division. 


In Religious Education (RE), we have explored Hindu Holy Books and their meanings. We have learnt about the four Vedas and how they are split into four subdivisions, which separate out the information within each section. We discussed how the religious texts help Hindu's within their daily lives. 


In Science this week, our focus was gases and how they are put into drinks to make them carbonated. We used a Soda Stream bottle so that we could experience seeing this first hand before undertaking our own investigations to find out if gases weigh anything. We made predictions, carried out a fair test, and then collated our data to form our conclusion. 


In our Music lesson this week, we started listening to 'Blackbird' by The Beatles. We have learnt some of the lyrics and sung them as a whole class.


Next week, we are looking forward to taking part in Sports Week. On Tuesday morning, we will be taking part in our Year 4 Sports Day. Remember to bring a water bottle and a hat if it is sunny. We have lots of fun and exciting sports activities planned for the rest of the week, so make sure you are dressed in your PE kit all week


Congratulations to this Week's Stars and Top Ten Rockers!
