It's been a very busy November in St. Pauls' class!
During the month we have been delving into our ‘Kings of the North' butterfly and learning all about the Anglo – Saxon's invasions. Using maps and atlases, we looked at different place names that date back to the time of the Anglo-Saxons.
Year 4 took part in a special Remembrance worship on Wednesday 11th November. We shared what the poppy represents and why it is recognised as a symbol of remembrance. We recited the poem ‘In Flander’s Fields’ written by John McCrae.
Anti-Bullying Week 2020 - United Against Bullying
During this week we discussed the different types of bullying that exists and what we can do to unite against bullying. We learnt that we all have an important part to play in deterring bullying from happening and what we would do if we ever experienced or witnessed it ourselves.
We began this month looking at a story with a historical setting, 1944. We used this text to identify its key features and magpie ideas for our own stories.
We have now begun looking at non-chronological reports and are currently learning all the key skills we need to put into our writer's toolkits.
We have been working on our multiplication skills through practising our times tables and solving multiplication problems using written methods.
