Friday 13th October


This week we have been consolidating our place value knowledge and, as you can see, have used posters to explain our understanding to others.
In literacy, we have stepped into Varjak's paws and have planned a diary based on his feelings and experiences. 
We have explored the expansion of the Roman Empire, using a map of Europe and our atlases. Our Roman helmets are taking shape and should be ready to protect our heads over the half term holiday!
Don't forget walk to school week continues next week so please put your best foot forward.
Happy weekend :-) 
In science, we set up our own investigations to find out how the speed of evaporation can be altered.

Our Roman topic is now in full swing!
This week we have danced like Roman gladiators and have started to create our wonderful Roman helmets, using mod roc.
We are really looking forward to Roman day on Monday.

In maths we have continued our work on place value and had great fun creating and solving each others' missing box problems.
Times tables scores have significantly improved in just one week. Thank you for all your help learning these at home.

In English, we have written postcards from our summer holidays, focusing on sentence structure and using a wide range of conjunctions. It looks like you all had great holidays.
Have a lovely weekend everyone - and remember to read, as well as practise your spellings and times tables.

Homework

In Year 4, we set 3 homework tasks each week that focus upon core skills.

Spellings:

Please be aware that the first Year 4 spelling test is on Monday 18th September.

We will be testing pupils on their spellings each Monday and it is incredibly important they bring their spelling homework book in on Monday morning with their homework completed.

It would help us if you could remind your child about their homework, check it is completed to the best of their ability and returned each Monday. We set aside time to look through these books on Monday and we struggle to assess pupils' homework if they return their book on a different day.

Reading:

Please aim to read with your child as regularly as you can. We recommend reading daily but understand this isn't always possible. Please aim for at least three times a week. This should include asking questions to check their understanding. We check children's progress on a weekly basis and adjust their books according to their understanding. 

Don't forget to sign up to receive notifications of your child's comprehension quizzes (information on the letter sent out last week).

Times Tables:

We ask that you support your child in developing their fluency chanting and recalling times tables facts. This will support them in many areas of mathematics and will be invaluable throughout their life. Times Tables test takes place weekly, usually on Thursdays. We score pupils' attainment against 108 times tables facts during each test and monitor their progress weekly. The pupils who make most improvements are those who regularly chant their tables in and out of school.

Thanks as always for your continued support. Please pop in and see your child's teacher if you would like to discuss homework.
