What a half term it has been so far!
In Maths, we've been brushing-up on our place value skills including using base 10 to help create 4 digit numbers and understand their value. As well as this, we have tackled negative numbers and even Roman Numerals from 1-100. Make sure to quiz your child about them!
In English, we have been creating our own versions of 'The Fox and the Star' and also poetry linked to the story. The children have been learning some beautiful vocabulary.
We've just finished both our RE lessons and our Geography topic. The children learned about Christianity and the story of the Good Samaritan. In topic, the children had fun food tasting and investigating European countries.
Beavers class have almost finished 'The Boy who biked the world' and have really enjoyed reading it as our Guided reading book. We found out about lots of different countries on Tom's journey to Africa and lots of interesting customs that are held in each place.
We still have DT and Science to come! We will focus on electrical circuits and build our own lighthouses!
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.

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/
