YEAR 4

 What Have We Achieved This Week:

 

 Struck by Lightning!

In Maths we have been investigating place value further. We have looked at comparing and ordering numbers as well as negative numbers. 

In English we have been writing our myths. We have focused on using our suspense techniques to build up tension in our battle scenes and challenging ourselves to use 'show not tell' in our endings. We are very proud of our myths.

  • The age group of the audience and why? (8-9 year olds because…)
  • Rating (Score out of 10, 5 stars etc.)
