- About Us
This term Year 4 have been learning all about the ones, tens, hundreds and thousands in a place value chart. We have been using counters to represent what four digit numbers look like.
In pairs, we created two four digit numbers and compared their size. We realised that in order to decide which was the biggest, we need to look at the thousands first.
We have made a lot of progress with explaining our answers and proving that we are right. We can now apply this knowledge to problem solving and reasoning questions.
Today Year 4 have had a visitor! We'll be investigating what kind of creature has been sneaking around during English this week.
As part of our science topic 'Tremendous Teeth' we will be focusing on being able to:
-classify teeth into four groups and identify them.
-describe the functions of human teeth.
-compare our teeth to those of other animals.
-explain simply why we must take care of our teeth.
-describe how we should look after our teeth.
We were also given the opportunity to create a model of the human jaw using play-dough and labelling correctly.
