Welcome to Dunns class!
Dunns class have had been very busy in term 2! In the classroom we have been working extremely hard in Maths on our timetables, place value, shapes, multiplication and division. We have been using a fantastic app called times tables Rock stars so that we are even better at knowing them! In English we have been writing amazing setting descriptions and we have been using thesaurus’s to help us find even better words in our work!
Our whole class text is the Firework Maker’s daughter which we all really have enjoyed. We have also had a drama teacher in school to work with us and through role play using our imaginations to act out stories. We had to create some missing posters for Lila who runs away in the story!
As part of our Science topic which is Electricity we have been learning how to create circuits, we also had to write up our own experiments. We found this very interesting! In topic we have been learning about Ancient China and we had a fantastic workshop, we enjoyed dressing and we even got to write our own names in Chinese! We have also been on a very exciting school trip to London Zoo.
Here are some of our best bits:
Geoffrey- “I loved going to London Zoo and seeing all the amazing animals, my favourite animal was the Gorilla’s”.
Hannah- “In English, I have really enjoyed our text Winter’s child and I loved re-writing my own version called Summer’s Child”.
Oscar- “In Maths I have especially liked problem solving and being able to challenge myself in working these out!”
Matilda- “My favourite part of Year 4 so far has been Science because we got to learn about all the endangered animals”.
