Week beginning: 4th March 2019

We have had a fabulous book week in Year 4, focused on our Spring term book, 'The Explorer'. From raft building in an impromptu forest school session to choosing a story-time session with one of the teachers, there have been fun and exciting activities all week. On top of our literary-related activities, we have also been completing a STEM project for the Palladian Trust Science week. 

Next week:
In Maths, we are working on Division. Key vocabulary includes: divide, remainder, share.  
Please ensure that your child continues to practise the times table that they are working on, ready for our weekly test on Wednesday. This forms part of the weekly Year 4 homework. 

In English, now that Book Week has finished, are returning to our unit on rainforest poetry. Key vocabulary includes: senses, simile, metaphor, soundscape, rhythm, rhyme, verse, stanza. 

In Science, we are looking at teeth and the digestive system in animals including humans this term. 

Have a lovely week, 

The Year 4 team
