Year 4

Weekly Overview

Year 4 have had an excellent week; working hard with enthusiasm and positivity.

In English this week, Year 4 have continued to read the additional short story following on from our class book Wonder.
We have completed various activities to demonstrate our understanding of other secondary characters in the book. We have also started to plan and write our own opening chapter to our own version of a Wonder story.

In Maths this week, we have continued to complete daily arithmetic questions and multiplication and division challenge. We have also completed a unit on data handling, including pictographs, bar charts and line graphs.

The class have enjoyed our Gymnastics lessons this half term demonstrating excellent teamwork, persistence and courage.

Well done Year 4!

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 full new P.E. kits. Red outdoor coats.

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.
