What a lovely week we have had in Seals class! It has involved Tudor roses, electrical circuits and lots of rounding!
This week, we introduced our new unit of work which is biographies. We discussed what a biography is and spent time learning and analysing the model text. Next week, we will research and plan our own biography.
We have now concluded our place value unit of work. We ‘rounded’ off this unit of work by learning how to round to the nearest 10,100 and 1000. Next week, we are moving on to addition and subtraction.
This week, we learned about the significance of the Tudor Rose. We discussed why it was created and how it represents unity and peace. Children had the chance to create their own Tudor Rose and they look fantastic! Towards the end of the week we analysed portraits of various people from the Tudor times. We thought about the way in which each portrait was painted and what this may suggest about the person in the portrait.
This term we are learning about electricity. So far, we have sorted items based on whether they use electricity or not and discussed where electricity comes from. This week, the children had to try and make a bulb light by making a simple series electrical circuit. They had so much fun investigating with the equipment!
Children have been given some Maths homework this week which relates to the learning we have been doing in school. The task has been explained in class, but if you have any questions about this, please do get in touch. This piece of homework is due on Monday 3rd October. Children should practice their spellings and times tables and read at home alongside this.
Year 4, List 3 – ‘in’ becomes ‘il’, ‘in’ becomes ‘ir’

Have a lovely weekend,
