 Welcome to Year 4

with

Mrs Meehan and Mrs Henderson

 

Wecome back to Spring Term 2020! 

Well done to Year 4 for winning the overall attendance award. I'm sure we will be able to spend our reward wisely! 

Class Dojo is a great way for me to share with you what's been happening in class as well as our web page so please make sure you are signed up. 

World Knowledge

Our World knowledge theme this term will be 'The Legacy of Adventure - Myths, Marvels and Mayhem' and we will be focusing on the question " How has the past shaped our present?"We will be looking at the legacies  Ancient Egypt left us. 

English

This half term, we are focusing on a book by Joe Todd Stanton called "Arthur and the Golden Rope. "  We will be basing most of our learning through this text.  We will write myths, creating characters and settings which will be based on our learning from Ancient  Egypt. We will also be focusing on grammar and different types of sentences. Try some of the websites listed below to help you.

Maths

Over the next few weeks we are focusing on formal written methods for multiplication, symmetry and units of measurement. We will also continue to develop our mental calculations and learning all of our multiplication tables. 

Mathletics is a great way for you practise key skills we have covered in class and you can also play against other children around the world.  It will also form part of your homework this term. Remember that if you go to homework club, you can use the i pads in school to complete your homework.

 

Please remember to do your 5 reads and homework. 

Homework is given out on a Friday and is due back in on the following Wednesday. If you need any help with your homework or just a quick reminder of what you need to do, then please tell me and we shall sit together and go over it. Mrs Henderson has a year 4 homework club which is a great way to do your homework with a little support in school.

Many thanks to our year 4 representives for continuing to work hard in their elected class roles.
