Year 4 have been working really hard on their understanding of fractions over the last couple of weeks. They've worked hard to learn how to find fractions of an amount using counters and also how to apply their understanding of times tables to help them. Today, we looked at finding fractions of shapes and writing our own word problems.
It has been great to see so many children persevering, even when they found the work tricky. Keep up the good work Year 4!
We have had a great day today! RE day! We joined together with year 3 to make the shape of a cross. Did you know that some churches were built in the shape of a cross?
Year 4 visited The North Enfield Foodbank as part of their RE curriculum. They had a great day learning about the food items, being amazed by the warehouse and helping to make up food parcels for those in need. They learned from Kerry the Food bank manager that Christians often feel that they want to help those around them - regardless of their beliefs and background- to show God's love for the world.

Ancient Egyptian Day
Year 4 had a wonderful day learning about the Ancient Egyptians. We had the opportunity to find out about their daily life, religion, culture and language. Without a doubt, the most exciting part of the day was carrying out the mummification process on a Pharaoh. Gruesome!
Welcome To Year 4
We hope you enjoy seeing our fantastic learning in year 4!
