P.E. will be on a Monday. Children may leave their PE kits in their locker for the full half term. 

 

Homework will be handed out on a Friday. You will have a paper copy that can be left at home. 

 

Homework will be sent out on Fridays and needs to be completed. Homework should not be returned to school. 

Children should also be reading a minimum of 3 times and have these written in their reading diary and signed by an adult which should be in school every day.

They also have a spelling test on their weekly spellings on a Friday afternoon. Please make sure your child has a copy of the spellings to practise. We are following the Spelling Shed scheme, which you can sign up to at home for extra spelling activities.

 

Augustus and his Smile

"Augustus the tiger was sad. He had lost his smile. So he did a huge tigery stretch, and set off to find it."

We will be learning about descriptive techniques, such as;

  • Metaphors
  • Similes
  • Expanded noun phrases
  • Prepositional phrases
  • Personification

We will work towards writing a descriptive narrative. 

We will also be focused on Art in the afternoons.

 

Maths

We have been working on our times tables. In Year 4, it is important they we can recall our times tables accurately and quickly. This helps us to get ready for our Year 4 Multiplication Test at the end of the year.
