Strike Action 27th April and 2nd May
Welcome To Otter Class
Welcome back! I can't believe this is our last half term in Year 4, how quickly has that time gone.
Fingers crossed now for some sunny weather and less rain.
This half term, the children will be learning lots of new things. In English, the children will be reading the book The Village that Vanished and subsequently writing a balanced argument about whether one of main characters should stay or leave her village.
In maths, the children will be learning about time, shape and position and direction.
In science the children will be investigating environmental pollution and the impacts on the planet.
Lastly, the children will be studying geography (Europe and its neighbours), Spanish, PSHE, PE and Art.
We have the excitement of sports day this half term and also we will be taking the children on a local walk to the church, this will link to our RE topic.
Lets make it a great half term!
Please don't hesitate to catch up with me at any point before or after school.
- Please come to school wearing your PE kits – PE is every Tuesday
- Library visits will also be on a Tuesday.
- Mymaths homework is set every Friday, please ensure it is completed by the following Friday.
- Please practice your times tables regularly and complete MyMaths activities
- Reading records must be in school every day so we can see your reading journey. Please try to read at least three times a week at home. Parents and carers, please sign the reading record so we can see they have read to you.
Year 4 - Multiplication test
In June, 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/
