Welcome to Year 4 with Mr Fishwick, Mrs Evans, Mrs Russell, Mrs Lusted and Miss Aston.
This term will be full of fun and some fantasic activities. We will become avid newspaper reporters during our English lessons as we study the article about ‘The Creature.’ As we complete our sentence stacking activities we will learn the skills needed to write our own fascinating reports.
Our History topic is sure to interest you, as we learn all about the Anglo-Saxons and Scots. We will learn where they came from and all about the invasions that took place during this period of history. Why not try and think of some questions that you would like answered as we work through our topic or find out some fabulous facts to share with the class.
We will also become bakers as we practise our bread making skills. We will design our bread through researching lots of different recipes and taste testing lots of different food combinations. Why not have a go at home first to practise your kneading skills or taste test different types of bread? You could have a look at the different breads in the bakers or supermarket and you could take a look at bread recipes to find out the names of different breads available.
Weekly Homework Tasks
· You must read at least 3 times each week to an adult at home. Each time you read, you must get your reading record signed by an adult. Please bring this into school every Friday to be checked.
· Remember to complete your My Maths homework. This will help you to practise what we have been learning in class. Your log in information is in the front of your reading record.
· We want to be super spellers! You need to use Spelling Shed at least 5 times each week. This will help you to understand the Year 4 spelling patterns as well as practice spelling rules from previous years.
· Try to complete as much Lexia as you can at home. This will help you to improve both your reading and your spelling.
Year 4 Times Table wizards!
In Year 4, we have the task of learning all of our times tables up to 12 times. This takes lots of practice! We will help in class but you will need to put a lot of effort in at home so that you know each fact instantly! It’s a challenge but we know you can do it if you try really hard and put the work in.
