What we are doing in class this week:


We are continuing with our narrative writing this week. We will be writing setting descriptions and begin to re-write the introduction and build up to our class book, 'Escape from Pompeii'.


In maths this week, Year 4 will continue to revisit and explore place value. We will be finding 1,000 more or less of a given number and comparing 4 digit numbers. We will be using a range of resources in class to support our learning as well as using the outdoor space to help us. 


We will be learning about the water cycle this week and then we will be moving onto our next science topic, Rocks and Soils. 


P.E will take place on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. We will be doing football. 

Spellings and homework:

Spellings will be given out on a Monday, there is a copy stuck into their homework books and you can find a copy linked below. Spellings will be tested on a Friday so please ensure your child has their homework book in on these days to complete the test in the back of their books. 

This week, Spellings, times table practise and maths homework will be given out on Monday the 28th of September, it will be due in on Monday the 5th of October. Please can I give a gentle reminder that it is your child's responsibility to hand their book in the homework drawer on the date their homework is due in, this is to ensure it is marked and new homework is stuck in.


Glossary of English terms

Times Tables:

At the end of the year, Year 4 will have to take a times table test. It is therefore incredibly important that times tables are practised regularly, in school and at home. Each week we will have a 'times table of the week' and will be practising in class daily through different activities. We will also be doing times table tests on a Friday.

Christian Value

Our Christian value this term is Generosity. In class, we have explored passages in the Bible and discussed ways we can be generous in our everyday lives and why it is important.
