Welcome to Stoat Class!
Welcome back, we hope you are enjoying the half term so far. We're now well into our Christmas plans and activities!
This half term, the children are creating their own plays based on the book the Lost Happy Endings.
In maths, the children are focussing on multiples and learning various facts connecting multiplications and divisions with different numbers.
In computing, we will be learning to make our own algorithms on Scratch.
Within our foundation lessons the children have been learning about the Romans in history and are soon taking part in a Roman day. They will also be learning Spanish, PSHE, PE and art.

Please remember: PE is on Tuesdays, so remember to wear your full PE kit to school. Library visits will also be on a Tuesday. As the weather is getting colder, please remember to bring in a coat every day. Please check the website or with a member of staff if you are unsure of any of the school uniform requirements.
We have sent home some song words for Year 4 to learn for our Christmas Carol performance in a couple of weeks. Please help your child to learn these at home. Below are the links to the songs so you can play them to help your child learn them.

Autumn 2 so far!
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/
We have sent home KIRFs sheets with their homework. These are Key Instant Recall Facts that the children need to know to support other areas of maths. There is a set stuck in their homework books and a second set of the same facts to display somewhere at home to help you with regular practise. They will get a new set each half term.
