Learning Week Beginning 9th September 2019
Hello, and welcome to this year's Year 4 page.
After a week of "Getting to know you" activities, including our Art Project looking at Leonardo Da Vinci, the children have begun the year's learning in earnest. All have settled in well and we have begun by introducing this half-term's topic of The Romans. Linked to this, in English we have begun reading and doing work on the historical fiction story "Gladiator Boy", looking initially at how characters in fiction are presented.
Maths has focused on place value in 4-digit numbers, how to compare and re-order 4-digit numbers, and what happens when adding or subtracting with numbers including crossing the barrier between hundreds and thousands.
We have also begun work on the changing states of materials in Science as well as other areas of the curriculum such as computing, French, PE and RE.
Please be aware that PE lessons are now on Tuesdays and Thursdays. PE kits should be kept in school throughout the half-term so that children always have their PE kit ready.
Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school every Monday, so it is ready for whenever it is needed as our timetable changes weekly.
Please also ensure that your child brings their yellow spelling book into school each Friday, ready for the new spellings to be given.
Reminder about PE kit:
Plain white T-shirt
Please make sure you have everything in your child's PE kit.
