Welcome to 4B with Mrs Blair & Mrs Tunstall!
In 4B we are friendly, kind, helpful and are always ready to learn. We make a great team.
We love reading and we look forward to regularly achieving 100% in Strive for 5!
In Maths, as well as learning new skills, we revisit and revise some skills we already know. We put these into practice with fun games or by understanding how to use them to solve problems. We love practising our tables and have lots of fun using our knowledge for tables challenge games such as ‘shoot out’.
Our lessons are often interactive. The picture above was taken while we were learning about fronted adverbials (a key topic in year 4).
