Year Four have kicked off their Brainwave topic in both English and Maths this morning. First in Maths the students worked together to explore everything they know about a particular number. The were asked to use all four operations, write the number in words and draw pictures. One group even got a star for their critical thinking skills.
In English we looked at the poem 'Try, Try Again,' by T.H. Palmer.
The poem is full of challenging words and the children used dictionaries to help them understand what the words mean.
Question: What does persevere mean? Can you use it in a sentence?
