Year 4

Update for Week beginning :21/05/18

English and Maths information:

In English this week, children will continue to focus on science fiction writing. They have planned their own stories based on a character crash landing on a strange planet and will be writing them this week. They will be concentrating on including a range of adjectives and adverbials to create images of the planets and characters in the reader’s mind. In maths, we will be completing a range of assessments, designed to test their knowledge and help inform the learning the children will be completing over the next couple of weeks. These assessments are nothing to worry about – the children should see them as an opportunity to show what they have learned so far this year!

Other curriculum news:

This week, we will be designing and creating packaging for new chocolate bars!

General Information:

Please note: Madrid class will continue swimming lessons at Littledown on Wednesday afternoons – they will need their swimming kits, complete with goggles and swimming hats with them every week.

STEPs training starts this week. Please ensure you have returned permission slips to the office in order for your child to complete the training, thank you.

This term our indoor PE will be on a Monday afternoon and our Games session will be on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure all PE kits are in school on these days!
