Year 4

Update for Week beginning : 27/3/17

English and Maths information:

During our English lessons this week, we have completed a GPS and reading test to establish how much progress we have made this half term. Throughout the rest of the week, we will be completing an unaided story writing task to show off our skills and then some grammar, punctuation and spelling activities to support any gaps in our understanding.

In Maths, we have also completed a maths test. The remainder of the week will be spent consolidating our understanding of multiplication through word problems. We will then complete some problem solving activities which will enable us to practise our teamwork, resilience and perseverance skills.

Other curriculum news:

In Project this week we will be finishing our Tudor portraits in pencil and then painting them using the skills we learnt at the beginning of this half term. We will focus on mixing colours and using different brush strokes to create an effect.

Tudor museum: Tuesday 4th April 2:30 – 2:50. We welcome all Year 4 parents to attend our Project Outcome where we will showcase our Hooke Court creations and all of the learning we have done over this project. We cannot wait to share this with you.

Swimming: This week your child will have brought home a letter with swimming details. Please return the form to us as soon as possible so we can begin to group the children accordingly.

Road Safety Training: After Easter, the children will begin their road safety training with the STEPS team. Please ensure you have returned the permission slip for your child to be taken out by the roadside on a Wednesday afternoon for three weeks. Any parents who are able to offer their support during these sessions to take children out would be greatly appreciated.
