Welcome to Year 4 Rosen’s class page. This is the place to find out everything we’ve been up to during the week, as well as find out what the homework tasks are.
The class teacher is Mrs Jeffrey supported by Miss Kaisa and Miss Michelle.
This week, as you can imagine, we’ve very busy practising our class assembly. I’ve learned that St Stephen’s children are born ready for rehearse and it’s been a joy to watch them practise their lines and songs. I’ve also been reminded that boys this age are very reluctant to demonstrate any feelings to girls even if they know it’s only acting – so we have had a wife shy Henry VIII and a heroic George who definitely does not want to marry the Princess! Oh well – I’m sure it’ll be all right on the night – as they say. Final version of the scripts are on the website, along with the lyrics and the music score.
In other news – the Lifebus was here on Wednesday and the children spent time learning how ‘It’s Great to be Me’. They discussed physical, social and emotional ways to keep themselves healthy.
In Maths – we have been learning about correspondence and scaling and tackling word problems. The children quickly identified that they needed their all multiplication knowledge (multiples/factors) and corresponding division facts to solve the problems. I can not stress how important times table are because it supports so many areas of Maths (fractions, time, shape, decimals, position/direction) so please practise, practise, practise.
We’ve been practising our expanded noun phrases by adding ‘with’ i.e. wild green dragon with the evil looking eyes. The children are really getting a good idea of how to improve their work using different vocabulary.
Please encourage the children to practise for the assembly – I hope you will be able to join us on Thursday!
Enjoy the weekend!
