Year 4 Weekly Update – 09/09/22

Dear Parents and Carers,

We have loved welcoming the children into year 4 this week and have been so impressed with how well they have settled into class! We have enjoyed talking about our family heritage and creating flags that celebrate where we are from in the world. Later in the week we look forward to beginning our work on the Romans. We are still looking for parent volunteers for our trip to St Albans next Friday, please ensure that you have returned your child’s permission slip and do let us know if you are available to help! We are very grateful for any support you can offer.

Spellings: This week we will be a revision of year 3/4 common exception words:

Accidentally, Actual, Address, Answer, Appear, Arrive, Believe, Bicycle

Spelling Assessments take place every Tuesday starting from next week.

Times tables: Next week we will be focusing on teaching the 9 times table. To support this, please practice with your child at home. As well as this, your child has been set a purple mash times table quiz to access at home. Please find some links to useful websites below.

English: Next week in English we will be beginning to look at the story of Boudicca. We will be sequencing the events of the great battle against the Romans, which we will use to help when we go on to write our Boudicca inspired Historical narratives.

Maths: In Maths, we will be beginning our work on place value for the term. We will be working on representing and partitioning numbers to 1000. Below is a useful link to help support this work.

PSHE: Next week in PSHE we will be talking about mental wellbeing and ‘checking in’ with how we are feeling.

D+T: Later in the term Year 4 will be creating their own Roman Mosaics! To do this we will be using empty CD cases as the base for our work. If you have any unwanted CDs at home, we would be very grateful for donations to support this project.
