Update on Tuesday 21st January 2020:  

We are working hard and having fun in Year 4!

We are looking at Area in Maths this week. In English, we are writing our new Traditional Tales based on Hamelin. We are looking at Living Things in Science and in Topic, we are finding out about Rainforest Plants. Yesterday, and somewhat to our surprise, we had our final Forest School session with Mrs Smith before she leaves for her new job. The smores were much enjoyed, needless to say! Swimming continues as usual until half term, with B2 leaving at 12.30pm and B1 at 1.00pm. Support with these last few Swimming sessions of the year would be very much appreciated. Huge thanks for all the help we have received so far!

Next week, we return to Multiplication and Division in Maths. In English, we will be looking at non-fiction Animal Fact Files and how to write them.  In our Topic work, we will be researching  Rainforest Animals and in Science, we will be looking further into Living Things and their Habitats.

Spelling Tests continue as normal. Times Tables are VERY important at the moment so do get practising please! Your child should be able to tell you what his/her target table is currently but do feel free to practise others as well. Our Topic-based homework will also be out very shortly - watch this space! Many thanks again for all support with homework.

We hope you have a good week,

The Year 4 Team
