Year 4

Update for Week beginning : 25/3/19

English and Maths information:

This week we will be writing instructions on how to mummify a human! We will be using our knowledge of imperative verbs and conjunctions for time.

In Maths, we are going to get our teeth stuck into a whole host of investigative, open-ended word problems. This will use all four operations which have been consolidated earlier in the year. Any MyMaths task involving the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) will support your child’s learning.

Other curriculum news:

Our new project will be “The Tomb Travelers!”. We have been thrilled to see and hear the excitement from the children for this fascinating historical period. We will continue our learning with the Gods and Pharaohs.

General Information:

This half term our indoor PE will be on a Tuesday afternoon and our Games session will be on a Wednesday afternoon at Kings Park. Please ensure all PE kits are in school on these days! Madrid class will be swimming on a Thursday afternoon so please bring swimming kits.

Please remember to ensure that your children are dressed appropriately for the cold, hats and gloves are encouraged as well as warm coats.

Every Friday the children will be completing a spelling and times tables test.  They have the opportunity to earn certificates for their times tables results.  Following on from parent feedback, the children will be expected to write their results in their diary and share the progress with you at home!  They will also write down any words they found tricky in the test.  Thank you for the support in practising these at home.

The spellings that we are now focusing on can be found in your child’s home school diary on page 57. These are the statutory spellings for Year 3 & 4.
