Friday 7th May |
Good evening parents/carers,
We’ve had another busy week in Year 4 this week. We have finished our poetry topic in English and the children made some lovely poems using some fantastic metaphors and similes (one of my personal favourites was as kind as Miss Chambers…).
In Maths, the children have been working on hundredths, decimals and dividing.
In History, the children have been looking at the ancient city of Baghdad and even attempted to recreate it on their chromebooks!
The children developed their ability to plan a fair test in Science. They will be conducting an experiment to see what affects the rate of ice melting.
Thank you to parents who have sent consent forms back four our trip to Murton Park on the 10th June (4K) and 11th June (4C) . We have received 32 replies so far. We would like to remind you that the cost of £16 is genuinely voluntary and parents are under no obligation to pay. However, in order for the trip to be financially viable, we will require the vast majority of parents to make the voluntary contribution. If we do not receive enough contributions, then the trip may have to be cancelled.
English homework this week is on the English classroom (homophones) and Maths homework is on the Maths google classroom (tenths as decimals). Please can children complete homework by Wednesday at the latest. We’d also like to remind children that they should complete around 10-15 minutes of extra learning at home each night for their Extreme Learning. This can include: Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars, Mathletics, reading and much more. 4K are definitely currently the winners in the battle of Extreme Learning! Can 4C catch up?
We hope you have a lovely weekend,
The Year 4 team
