Year 4 have been learning about programming – creating instructions to be followed. In pairs, we created a Crossy-Road game, choosing our own characters and selecting coding in order to have up/left/right controls, objects which collide with our character and a prize at the end if we win the game.
The class have been using Hopscotch in order to create our games. This is a free app that can be downloaded from the Apple App Store if they want to continue learning new techniques at home. Scratch is another good programming app, available as a download on PC.
In maths, Year 4 have been learning their Roman Numerals. The class spent time learning a catchy Roman Numerals song, along with the hand moves for each number. All of the hard work was then presented to the rest of the school in sharing assembly.
