Year 4

Weekly Overview

Welcome back to a new half term. I hope you are all well and keeping safe.

In English this week, Year 4 have continued to read and enjoy our class book- Wonder completing Part 4.
We have completed various SPaG work; adding adverbial phrases to sentences and using the prefix auto and anti.

In Maths this week, we have completed two assessments in reasoning. We have also completed work on converting measurements.

The class have worked hard this week and I enjoyed learning about their acts of kindness from over the half term break.

It is recommended that children also read daily, this can be recorded in to your child’s reading record. Reading regularly can not only improve word recognition and fluency, but can also assist children in their writing during class. Therefore, children will be expected to read at least 2 stage books per week (1 if they are on the thicker books from later stages). Reading books (and reading records) should be the only things going home and returning to school along with water bottles.

P.E. will be on Friday, so please ensure children attend school wearing their P.E. kits.  For P.E. children need to bring suitable clothing for the weather as we will attempt to be outside providing it is not raining heavily. Tracksuit bottoms and fleeces can be worn. Please refer to the school email for a full list of clothing options.

Early morning work begins at 08:30 each day and will be spent on tasks that the children have needed further support with. Therefore, I would encourage the children getting in to school on time, to ensure they do not miss any learning.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via telephone or an email to school.
