Dear Parents and Carers,
Year 4 had such a wonderful time at Cuffley Learning Centre last week! We hope you have enjoyed hearing all about it from the children. All the St Catherine’s staff were so proud of how fantastic Year 4 were throughout the trip, they really made the experience lots of fun! This week we are looking forward to drafting our own powerful poems about Ocean pollution and getting started with our multiplication checks. Please find your child’s learning and home learning below.
Spellings: This week’s spellings will focus on the suffix ‘ous’ Please encourage your child to look for the root word (for example in the word courageous, courage is the root word) and discuss how adding the suffix ‘ous’ impacts the words meaning.
Courageous, Mountainous, Spacious, Furious, Poisonous, Various, Famous, Dangerous
Please find below a helpful link to use when discussing suffixes.
Times tables: Starting this week we will begin administering the Statutory Multiplication Times Table checks. Please ensure that as much as possible you are revising the 2- 12 times tables with your child at home on both purple mash and times table rock stars. Your child has been set a try it check on purple mash- this is titled ‘Multiplication- Home test
English: We will be applying emotive writing techniques such as personification and similes to our poems.
Maths: In Maths we will be working on halving decimals and consolidating what we have learnt so far about decimals
RE: In RE next week we will be continuing our earning about Paul and Silas
Library: Please ensure your child brings their library books back to school every Monday. If they wish to keep the same book for an additional week it needs to be checked out once more from the Library.
- There is an additional own clothes day this Friday
- Library books returned to school on Monday
