Star of the Week Review

This week at school in Year 4H we have been learning about Romans and the Roman Empire. We have looked at the way they lived and we have learnt that Romans gave us lots of inventions that we still use today such as: roads and numbers (roman numerals). We also learnt that Romans came to England for riches, slaves and raw materials like leather and wool. The Romans successfully invaded England in 43AD when Claudius was the emperor.

    This week in Year 4 H, in spelling, we have been learning about the ”ch” and ”k” sounds, which are both spelt the same using ”ch”. The words we have been learning include: beach, bench and technology.
    In English, we have been learning about the Wind in the Willow, which is our new book for this term. We have been reading chapter 1 and then wrote up a summary of the chapter. We also looked at some tricky words and found out the definitions by using the dictionaries.
    In Maths, we have been learning about decimals and what fractions are equivalent to them. Such as: 1/2 is the same as 0.50, 1/4 is 0.25 and 8/10 is 0.8. We have also done a skills quiz and we marked this as a class so we could all see how to answer the questions correctly.
    In Science, we completed a science experiment and then wrote it up. We had to blow onto testing tubes, with different measurements of water in, to see what different sounds were created. The one with the most amount of water created the highest pitched sound and the one with the least amount of water made the lowest pitched sound. We learnt that this happened because, when there is more water there is less room for the molecules to move around so they cant spread out as much.
    We have also worked hard in handwriting, reading comprehension and P.E and music.
