You have had a super start to the Spring term - keep up the hard work!
We are really enjoying our class novel for this term which is The Dancing Bear by Michael Murpurgo! We have discussed events, used drama to establish the character's thoughts and feelings and written in character. Following our story writing, we will be moving on to report writing for our non-fiction topic.
Please ensure your child is reading three times every week. It is really important that children do this, not only for their fluency in reading and comprehension, but also to support their writing in terms of grammar skills and imagination.
You are all working super hard in Year Four towards your Maths. If you would like to practice at home, your timetables would be a great idea as they support you in all areas of Maths. In addition to this, quick fire addition and subtraction games would help too. We are currently looking at the six, seven and nine times table so see if you can master those! I would recommend using the internet games 'Top Marks - Hit the Button' or 'Maths Magician.
We will be starting off this half term by looking at multiplication (both mentally and written) and a new division method. We will then move on to learning lots of exciting practical things about shape. Following that, we will do some work on Statistics.
This term we are going swimming on a Thursday afternoon. We will also be doing an additional PE lesson to this every week so please can you make sure your child keeps their PE kit in school.
