Welcome to the
Snow Leopard Class webpage...
For 2017-18, Snow Leopard Class is a Year Four class. We follow a three year rolling programme of learning that enables us to ensure that children do not unnecessarily encounter the same learning twice, whilst ensuring that the knowledge and skills for each subject are taught. The children’s own interests are incorporated within our themes, thus making their learning more personal and relevant.
As our Year Four children are the oldest in the school, they have the opportunity to take on more responsibilities to help our school run smoothly.
Monday 26th February - Friday 2nd March
Our focus in English this week is recount writing. We are writing diary entries. During the writing process, we are learning how to correctly use paragraphs, conjunctions, fronted adverbials and speech punctuation.
Our focus this week is on statistics (data), addition and subtraction. We are learning how to read and analyse bar charts. We are recapping mental and written methods for addition and subtraction, and we are applying these skills to calculations and word problems.
