Week commencing 2nd December 2019
This week we have had a fantastic week of learning. In maths children have been learning about length and perimeter.
In literacy we have been examining a new text called 'The Dot' which looks at a girl who thinks she can't draw and goes on to produce some fantastic art work, because she thought she could do better. We discussed fixed and growth mind sets and that handwork, practice and thinking maybe we can goes a long way.
It was fantastic to see so many adults come to our year 4 assembly. Children showed some of the activities that they have been doing.
There have been some fantastic letters to Abeline from Edward, updating her on his travels. Children added details about who Edward has been with, how he has changed and how he now has feelings. They also told Abeline of all the things that have happened on his journey so far.
Arithmetic and Maths
This half term we are focussing on multiplication and division. Each week your child will practice consolidating their skills and has the opportunity to do some extra maths at home if they wish.
Telling the time is actually quite trick for children to grasp. We have been working on telling the time in 5 minute intervals, using quarter past and to and also half past and o'clock. Those children who proved that they can already tell the time did some special Halloween challenge maths.
Year 4 spellings
Spellings this week are centering are from the year 3 and 4 spelling lists, children need to be able to spell a range of statutory words.
Children will have these in their planner to practice at home ready for their weekly spelling test.
