Weekly note 09.01.17

Year 4 Weekly Update for week beginning 09.01.17

Well that was a quick week! It’s great to be back and see all the children, they all sound like they’ve had a wonderful Christmas.

Here’s what’s coming next week:-

Numeracy: We will be focusing on written multiplication methods. This term we are really going to push the children hard into learning their times tables.There will be lots of fun activities and games but a high expectation for the children to be practising regularly. Please use the blog for some useful advice and weblinks:


Our aim is for ALL the children to know ALL their times tables by heart by the end of the year-please help us with this target!

We will also be giving the children their new Rainbow Targets on doubling and halving-see homework books next week.

Literacy: The children have been set a challenge by Wallace (of Wallace and Gromit fame) to design their own invention. This will then be the basis for some explanation writing. The children might like to think about and discuss their ideas with you at home. Let the creativity flow!

Literacy writing targets will be sent home in their homework books.

Science: we will be starting our new topic on electricity, building and exploring circuits.

Lost Property: we had a lot of lost property left at half term please could all uniform and PE kit be clearly named so we can return lost items.

Reading: thanks for some of the offers for help in hearing readers. If you arrive at school at about 2:30pm to sit in the car park why not join us and hear some readers instead of waiting on the playground in the cold? Let us know if you can help.

Thank you for your cooperation and your continued support.
