Weekly review week ending 13.12.19
This week in maths we’ve been working on kilometres and metres, and we’ve just started on perimeter – which the children have really taken to. It’s been a lesson in reading questions carefully: if it says it’s a square, we only need to know one dimension!
In English we’ve had 2 spellings test, including our termly assessment, and an assessed comprehension. For our comprehensions, we’re still concentrating on reading the questions carefully which is paying dividends. We've finished Beowulf, and have been looking at the conventions used in mythological tales.
We’ve been rehearsing and performing our nativity. We were rather late for our spot in the afternoon show. Apologies. My fault: I was too caught up in our comprehension lesson and didn’t allow time for loo visits!
On Wednesday afternoon we had Children’s University, which the children evidently enjoyed despite the outside activities being forced indoors by the weather.
In history we’ve had an end-of-topic assessment, which has been responded to well.
We’re all getting rather festive in Year 4, working our way through our Advent calendars and making and distributing cards, but we’re still having worthwhile lessons – much to the children’s credit.
Times tables homework – Term 2 Week 7 - 9.12.19
This week, please revise your 9, 10, 11 and 12 -times tables up to 12 times.
Here is the reading menu for this term. They are for the children to work on at home and in school. If they complete a line or four corners, they get a bookmark/sticker and once they complete a full house they get to choose a book from Mrs Hard's special box. We ask parents to sign to show that they have completed the challenge.
We hope to encourage a wide reading diet and to support the children in reading daily and developing a good stamina for reading in order to complete the whole menu by Christmas.
