Year 4

Update for Week beginning :16/07/18

English and Maths information:

In English this week, children will continue writing non-chronological reports on rainforest creatures. We will focus on the layout features and language used to construct factual information texts based on the creatures the children have researched! In maths, children will focus on real life problem solving. They will be using all of their maths’ learning for the year to work together to solve problems with real life contexts!

Other curriculum news:

This week, our attention remains on the FIFA World Cup! Children have been making powerpoint presentations based on their given country and will now learn how to transition slides and add suitable backgrounds. They will then present their presentations to the class!

General Information:

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

Home learning this half term:

  • Maths –  children have been set a series of MyMaths tasks for this half term. The tasks this half term include: Multiplication, reading line graphs, money problems and place value. This week we will focus on multiplication – so feel free to complete these tasks first.
  • Spellings – children should continue to learn the Year 3/4 spellings as laid out in the new home/school book. We recommend dividing the spellings up into chunks of about 5- 10 a week.
