Year 4

Update for Week beginning : 15/7/19

The last week of the school year!  Wow, what a year we have had.  The children have been absolutely brilliant and are an absolute credit to the St. James’ family.  Mr Slattery and Miss Brennan are so proud of all they have achieved and wish you all a wonderful summer break.

Our last homework museum of the year will take place on Monday, so please ensure all final bits are bought in by then.

English and Maths information:

In English we will be completing a very important piece of writing that will be stuck into their Year 5 books ready as the first piece of work for next year.  What a great opportunity to show off all of the brilliant learning they have done this year!

In Maths, we will be finishing the year by doing an array of team building problem solving tasks.  Please take this as an opportunity to finish of any My Maths work that is yet to be complete.

Other curriculum news:

Our new project is based on “Harry Potter” which we hope will provide us with many magical moments of learning.

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! Rome class will be swimming on a Thursday afternoon so please bring swimming kits.

Every Friday the children will be completing a spelling and times tables test on Times Tables Rockstars.  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.
