A Visit from Button!

Today Year 4 had a visit from Miss Barnes' dog, Button. She came in to say hello and help us with our English.

Our aim was to persuade Mrs McMinn to let us have a Therapy Dog! 

Have a look at the pictures below! 

For this unit of Maths, we are mastering  TIME

It is really very important that your child can read the time using both analogue and digital clocks.

Follow these links for a really good teaching clock and some fun games to play too. 

 

 

 

The national curriculum objectives we are learning about are:

  • read, write and convert time between analogue and digital 12- and 24-hour clocks
  • solve problems involving converting from hours to minutes, minutes to seconds, years to months, weeks to days

 

We have also been learning about fractions, including:

 

  • recognising tenths and hundredths
  • tenths as decimals 
  • placing tenths (including over 1 whole) in a place value grid and on a number line
  • dividing 1 and 2 digit numbers by 10 
  • dividing 1 and 2 digit numbers by 100
  • finding fractions of amounts e.g. 3/4 of 28
  • finding equivalent fractions 2/3 = 4/6 = 10/15
  • counting in fractions on a number line
  • converting improper fractions to mixed numbers e.g. 1 2/3 = 7/3 and in reverse

 

Any help you can give your child in these areas is greatly appreciated!!

Year 4 Topic Homework Task

Our topic next term is Rivers and the Water Cycle- we are going to do lots of exciting investigations and experiments! If you would like a project to focus on for the holidays, why not try one of the below and bring it int o share with us all. 

Write a poem about a river or a creature that lives in one.  Create 5 maths word problems based on a river theme! Find the lengths of the 5 longest rivers in the world. What other facts can you find out?
Use 2 plastic bottles to create a rain gauge and measure how much rain we have over the Easter holidays.  Create a collage out of recycled materials that is linked to rain, rivers or water e.g a waterfall, a cloud  Draw or paint an image of a river- look at, compare or copy the style of Claude Monet. 

 

Have a lovely holiday!

Dates for the Diary!

 

Black History Month- October

We will be celebrating the achievements and recognising the role of black people in history. Watch out for some special workshops too!

 

Today we were lucky enough to taste and watch foccacia being made! Since we have been learning all about bread and healthy balanced diets, a special visitor made us some to taste and it was delicious!

We learnt all about healthy eating and selecting healthy choices for our lunchboxes. For this, year 4 really enjoyed planning, preparing and making delicious and healthy sandwiches to finish off our project.

It might sound a bit disgusting, but in Science we made poo! We have been learning about the human digestive system so learnt how food is digested and which organs help. It got messy but we learnt a lot too!

Today was European Languages Day!

 

Our class selected to represent Russia in the Eurovision Song Contest! We also learnt about different landmarks and languages used in countries around Europe and participated in a Languages Quiz! Venus won! We had the chance to learn about and try to use the Russian alphabet too.. take a look!

Recommended Reading List - Year 3/4

 

Reading:

In Year 4, children need to be reading with an adult/ older sibling regularly!

 

Each child has an orange reading record that needs to be completed at least twice per week, being signed by whoever reads with the child. You are welcome to make comments or encourage your child to note ideas about what they have read. Children can select books from the class reading corner, the school library or a book from their own home. 

 

Children are also encouraged to use the red Reading Journals (that were given to them last year). Once 8 activities have been completed, children will be able to select a 'Prize Book' to take home and enjoy at any time!

 

Spellings:

Spellings will be tested weekly in Year 4.

Each week we will work as a class to investigate a new spelling patter, for example words using the pattern 'ou'.

Children are then encouraged to investigate more words at home to be tested on 10 random works on a Friday. 

 

P.E:

As we work on a fortnightly timetable, P.E will either be on Monday and Tuesday (week 1) or Tuesday and Wednesday (week 2). 

Children need to have the correct P.E. kit for both indoor and outdoor P.E, at school at all times.
