Welcome to Year 4!

 

 

 

Hello Year 4!

It is so lovely to finally have you all back in the classroom and I hope you enjoyed last week. We have got some fun things planned for this week!

A reminder that homework is uploaded weekly on the class page, it will be a mixture of spellings practise, times table practise or a Maths/SPaG activity.  

 

Reminders:

  • It is really important that you bring back the home learning packs that were given out in January, especially your whiteboard packs and PowerMaths books. You will be using these in class every day so they must be brought back in. 
  • Make sure you bring in a water bottle to keep hydrated throughout the day and a piece of fresh fruit or veg for snack time.
  • Bring in a coat or jacket whilst it is still cool outside. We will be going outside at some points of the day for different activities. 
  • The homework for this week is below.

  • Pick a writing style to practise writing out your words (pyramid writing, rainbow writing, bubble writing etc) or make up your own style. 
  • Draw some pictures to help you learn and remember your words
  • Create a collage of each words using lettering from magazines/newspapers
  • Make up sentences or silly stories with your words. Remember to use a dictionary to check the meaning of words you are unsure of.

 

Times Tables Practise

Each week, there will be a times table of the week. You should spend around 5-10 minutes a day practising your times tables, just like we would be doing in class. We have now covered all of the times tables in Year 4 so will now begin recapping each set.
