Miss Dyke’s class have made it to Lihou! They’ve been celebrating Ruby’s birthday too. They are all looking forward to a busy day of activities tomorrow.
Year 4 Weekly Update for week beginning 26.06.17
We have had another busy week at school with lots of outdoor numeracy! The children really enjoyed calculating the age of different trees and using sticks to create rectangles, to work out the area and perimeter! Here’s what’s happening next week:-
Lihou: We are off to Lihou!
Mrs Karia’s class – Monday 26th at 1.30 and return 2.30 on Tuesday 27th (Prosperity car park).

Mrs Dowding’s class – Wednesday 28th 3.30pm (Prosperity car park) and return Thursday 29th 4.30pm (Prosperity car park).
Just a gentle reminder, if you still haven’t paid for Lihou please can you pass on that payment to your child’s class teacher as soon as possible.
Numeracy: Looking at co-ordinates on a Lihou grid map.
Literacy: We will be finishing off our persuasive leaflets on the 3 R’s.
Science: We will be carrying on with our habitats topic.
Art: We will be creating our own ‘Goldsworthy’ inspired artwork and doing some printing from these designs.
Homework: There will be no official homework set this week so please encourage children to carry on with practising their Rainbow Targets, Mathletics and reading.
Please bring any remaining Sponsored Swim forms in as soon as possible and don’t forget that sponsored swim takes place on Tuesday (Mrs Dowding’s class) and Friday (Mrs Karia’s class).
The countdown to Lihou begins! Start getting your belongings together and watch the weather forecast!
Year 4 Team
A reminder that children should all have a named sunhat with them at school throughout the summer term. It would be great if they could come every day with a water bottle (they are able to refill) and sun cream that has already been applied.
Please find below the Summer term 2 spellings. Apologies for the delay.
Year 4 Weekly Update for week beginning 22.5.17
Another great week with some super story writing! Well done to Miss Dyke’s class for doing a super class assembly on Friday, they all worked very hard and Miss Dyke was very proud of them all. Here’s what’s coming next week:-
Numeracy: We will be looking at time and 3d nets.
Literacy: Children will be planning and writing their own stories with issues, dilemmas and problems showing what they have learnt about this type of story.
Geography: The children will be continuing their research about the 3 R’s. This will help prepare them for writing a persuasive leaflet later in the term.
A reminder to ensure all children have applied sun cream before school and bring a named sun hat now that the weather is beginning to get warmer.

It’s that time of year again! We have our class assembly on Friday 12th May. Please could you help your children to learn their parts for their assembly and also a rap that they will be doing. The link for this is below.
