All Homework (spelling lists, activity book and maths arithmetic) will be given out on Wednesday to be handed in on Monday.
There will be a spelling test every Monday so make sure you practice those spellings!
We are trying to get as many children reading as possible. To do so we are setting a reading challenge. For every day your child reads, they will receive a raffle ticket. At the end of each half term, we will be having a draw and there are prizes to be won. Please ensure that reading records are signed and handed in each day so they can be checked. The more reading you do, the more raffle tickets you will earn leaving you with more chance on winning - good luck!!
By the end of year 4, children should be confident with their times tables up to 12 x 12. Here are some games so that you can get better with your tables!
Year 4 Times Table checker
As you know we have our times table checker approaching very soon. We have been practicing our times tables ALOT however you can never do too much practice. Maths Factor is a brilliant website for you to practice the times table checker (it is exactly how the test will be laid out next year).
Well done - you superstars!!
Spelling, Punctuation is very important in KS2. Click on the link below to play some games so that you can improve your SPaG
This half term we are learning all about State of Matter. Here is link for some extra learning to do at home.
We have exploring how different substances change state when you heat and cool them. What better way to explore this than melt some chocolate and make some rice crispy chocolate cakes. We realised that when we heat chocolate it turns from a solid to a liquid, then once cooled turns back from a liquid to a solid which holds the rice crispiest together, leaving us with yummy cakes! Take a look at what we’ve been up to in the classroom... we even did the washing up afterwards 🧁
During the Autumn term we have been studying all things ANCIENT GREECE. We have covered lots within this topic, comparing modern and ancient Greece, character descriptions of Medusa, diary writing of a Spartan and clay pot making.
Each half term, in groups we take it in turn to plan and perform an assembly based
on our school value for that half term which is currently COURAGE.
We show great teamwork, co-operation and communication skills when planning our assemblies, ensuring we tell a story through acting, discussion about how the school values are shown throughout the story and a prayer to close the assembly.
