# Year 4 Wilson

### June 2016

Today we solved multiplication puzzles using the inverse operation and our known number facts. Afterwards we enjoyed sharing our learning experience with each other.

The children worked well in their house teams, designing a new sports game. They had to decide the aim, and explain how to play.

Today we were investigating a fraction problem. We had some excellent discussions about how to be strategic; it’s amazing how many different clever strategies the children came up with.

We are making 3-D shapes to help us describe their properties. Ask us about vertices, edges and faces.

This morning we read a text about children in Roman times. Then we made timelines to show the key events of a child’s life.

Today we solved some challenging 2-d shape puzzles. We had some great conversations about strategies and the children did some brilliant mathematical reasoning.

Today we reorganised a piece of broken up text by using clues like organisational features and paragraph content. It was really hard!

This week we are exploring vertical, horizontal, parallel and perpendicular lines. We have been drawing and labelling our own shapes.

We are warming up our brains by playing some Pie Corbett word games. One of the games is where the children select sentences from reading books and experiment with swapping words. This is a great way for children to also ‘accidentally’ learn about word classes! 😉
