This week in maths, Year 4 Wolves have been improving their ability to read, write and compare both 4 and 5-digit numbers, thinking carefully about the value of each of the digits and how best to work with these numbers.
Taking advantage of the sunshine, we took our lesson outside and, using giant chalks and the playground as our pens and paper, we attempted to demonstrate our knowledge of these concepts.
The Wolves came up with their own success criteria and ideas on how they would best show these:
Properties of Geometric Shapes
Year 4 have been working hard looking at geometric shapes and increasing their knowledge. Over the course of the week we have worked with angles, how to recognise them and where they are found, parallel and perpendicular lines as well as lines of symmetry.
In this session, the children were given a range of shapes to sort in their groups. They were given no specific way to sort them, not given properties to look identify. All the ideas and creativity came from them and the results were excellent.
