Year 4

Invaders and Settlers

Welcome to year 4. In the Autumn term, we have started learning about the Saxons. We had an important visitor, ‘Eadric’ (pictured) who was able to tell us all about life during that period. Eadric¬†brought with him some real Saxon artifacts which the children were able to inspect.

Maths

We are looking in detail at Place Value at the moment where the children are learning about the value of each digit in a number.

You can check out some maths games here: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/7-11-years/place-value

Mr McLaren’s favourite is the ‘Place value basketball’ game.
