Year 4 children at Holy Trinity have been getting to grips with using concrete resources to help their understanding of place value, particularly negative number. It was great to see the lightbulb moments when children finally grasped the concept and flew with their diagnostic review sheets. We were so proud of them! Additionally, the children were then able to link this prior knowledge to their work on sequences, explaining that no sequence ever ends at zero.
We have also been wowed by the beautiful homework that has been flying in recently, some quite literally! Year 4 children were asked to be as creative as possible and make a fantastic beast using whatever resources they could find at home. As you can see, some truly fantastic beasts have been created and children are really keen to now start writing their non-chronological reports about them.
