Welcome to Beaver class!
We hope you have enjoyed the first half of the Summer term!
In English, we have written some fantastic balanced arguments about whether animals should be kept in zoos and described some fascinating secret gardens using expanded noun phrases. Next, we will be creating tin forests and writing our own prequels to the story 'The Tin Forest' by Helen Ward.
Please bring in shoe boxes, toilet rolls, tin foil, or anything else that you think would work well to create a Tin forest. See email for details.
In Maths, we will be learning how to tell the time, including analogue and digital time and 12 and 24 hour clocks. In History, we have been learning all about the Tudors including the wives of Henry VIII, life in Tudor times and how religion changed during that period.
We had great fun in Science finding out which liquids affect our teeth in different ways and how clean our teeth really are by using tablets that turn plaque blue! We're looking forward to sketching some self-portraits in a Tudor style in Art by being inspired by Hans Holbien.
PE is on Tuesdays, come into school wearing PE kit.
MyMaths homework is set on Wednesdays and due the next Wednesday.
Reading should be recorded at least three times a week in diaries.
Autumn Year 4 Arithmetic and Reasoning Papers with answers
Year 4 - Multiplication test
In June, the new Year 4 Multiplication test will become statutory. Your child will need to take a short online test to make sure their times tables knowledge is at the expected level, answering questions up to 12x12. As well as practicing times tables and Rockstars at school, please ensure your child is recalling multiplication facts at home too. You can find further information about the test at: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/multiplication-tables-check-development-process
Below I have attached a link to what the Year 4 times tables test will look like, this will be very useful for children to use at home: https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/
