Year 4 Learning
The Iron Man
Year 4 are really enjoying their class book The Iron Man. Here are some of our children’s fantastic illustrations based on instructions from Chris Mould who is the illustrator of our signed copy of the book!
In our reading and writing lessons, we have been looking at 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. We have been writing our own sentences about the Iron Man and looking at how we can vary our sentences by starting them in different ways.
Year 4 have really enjoyed exploring Black History through reading and RSHE lessons. We spent a lot of time discussing issues around racism, white privilege and prejudice. We explored a timeline of Black History in Britain and then researched influential black women whose contributions have had a large impact on life today. We realised how important it was to study black history and decided there should be more reference across the curriculum.
Grammar- revisiting expanded noun phrases
In our writing sequence, we rehearse using grammar features in sentences before applying them to paragraphs and then we apply them in our planned pieces of writing. Recently, we have been re-visiting work on using expanded noun phrases in sentences.
