We have had another fantastic week in Eastgate this week!

In maths, at the beginning of the week, the children consolidated their understanding of two-step addition and subtraction word problems. The children then moved on to continue working on their multiplication skills. They have used the column multiplication technique to multiply two-digit and three-digit numbers by a one-digit number! Eastgate have also been solving problems that use the distributive law, the children tried super hard within this lesson! The children have also looked at integer-scaling within maths this week!

In English this week, the children have been editing their reports and completing their published non-chronological reports. Eastgate have also been looking at different facts about kangaroos - they then produced some fantastic fact files. Finally, the children have been working on information texts all about the aboriginal Australian flag.

During R.E, we have continued with our focus on Buddhism and engaged in some Buddhist meditation in class this week.

We also had another fantastic lesson this week from a visitor from enterprise who continued to talk to us all about businesses. The children were thinking about new business ideas this week. They came up with some fantastic ideas, watch out Dragons' Den!

We hope you have a great weekend.

The Year 4 Team.
