Year 4 Weekly Update for week beginning 18.9.17

 We’ve had another fantastic week, the children are settling into year 4 so well and we are proud of their hard work. Mrs Dowding’s class had a brilliant time sailing and are looking forward to next week.

For your information here’s what’s happening this week:-

History: The children have chosen a Tudor Monarch that they would like to find out more about. Thank you to those children who have started researching at home already – feel free to use the websites on the Year 4 blog and borrow any books from school. There will be no literacy homework for the next two weeks to allow time to do any extra research they would like to do to bring to their group.

Numeracy: Lessons will be focusing on sequences and mental strategies.

We would like to emphasise the importance of learning times tables. By Christmas we would expect most children to know their tables up to the ten times table and with fast recall. 10 minutes a day will make all the difference!

All children will be bringing home a Times Tables Rockstar login in the next few days. Don’t forget to use Mathletics to help as well!

Rainbow Maths Day: Rainbow Maths Day is on Friday 22nd and children are invited to dress in rainbow colours for the day. We will be doing Rainbow Maths related activities and handing out this term’s targets.

Literacy: Will be continuing to look at stories from other cultures. The children will be planning and writing their own.
