- PE Kit
Chinchillas will need to ensure that their PE kits are in school on Mondays and Thursdays. Please ensure that items of clothing are clearly labelled.
Homework activities will be set on Mondays and Thursdays. As well as a written activity we also encourage children to read daily as well as to learn their multiplication tables and associated division facts. Spellings are set every Monday and children will have the week to learn words ready to be tested a week later.
Homework and spellings can be found here.
Children have access to the library and an accelerated reader book which needs to be into school every day to use in allocated reading time. Reading journals have also been issued so children can record the books they are reading as well as offering space for comments to be made when reading occurs at home. These too should be in school each day.
We encourage all children to read as much as possible and encourage them to achieve 100% in the quizzes completed based upon the books read.
The children have settled back into the daily routine of year 4 life and are embarking on a new journey of learning starting with our first topic We Are Sailing.
The topic explores how ships have evolved over time as well as exploring how their purposes have changed. We will be looking in detail at some ships in history and begin to understand why they are famous.
In English our writing is a first person recount in the form of a diary. We will use the short Pixar animation La Luna to support us in our writing - you can view the film here.
In Maths our work focuses on Geometry whereby we will look at different types of angle, shapes, symmetry and coordinates.
In guided reading we will be reading a firm year four favourite...
The book was written by Michael Morpurgo who has written over 50 published books! How many of them do you think you have read?
We look forward to a great half term of learning and please keep checking back for updates on our page.
