What a busy half term we have. It’s hard to believe we only have half a term of year 4 left! The children have all worked incredibly hard and we have been very proud of them. We hope you all have a restful half term!
Here’s what’s coming up after half term:-
Numeracy: Children will be revisiting written methods of multiplication and doing some assessments to show their learning and understanding in numeracy.
Literacy: Children will be exploring a range of adverts and leaflets about places in Guernsey. They will be learning a persuasive text. Also, they will be doing some reading assessments during Guided Reading sessions.
Science: We will be starting a new topic about habitats.
Lihou: There will be an important information evening on Monday 5th of June 5pm for both parents and children. Please see separate flyer. If you are unable to attend then please let the class teacher know.
We will not be setting any formal homework over the holiday, however children should be continuing with their reading challenge, working on rainbow targets and using Mathletics.
