Mrs Jeffreys and Mr Ollerton: Year 4
Welcome to Year 4 !
Pancake Day 2020
Mrs Jeffreys found a recipe for making pancakes, but it makes 12 pancakes and we want to make 6 per group. We need to use what we have learnt in fractions this week to half the recipe.
100g plain flour
2 large eggs
We worked together to create our new quantities and weighed out all of our ingredients before mixing them together and making our pancakes.
After we made them we could put on toppings. We described to our friends what fraction of our pancakes are covered with each topping.
Using Drama to create our characters
After watching a clip by Nadia Shireen, author of Billy and the Beast, we learnt that to create characters she puts in exaggerated forms of her personality traits.
We listed our own traits and considered how they could be exaggerated and used to create characters.
Here we are moving as our beasts would move.
We have been working with Tens Blocks to help us with our Addition, Subtraction and Place Value
