Welcome to Year 4!
Welcome to a new half term! We hope that you enjoyed a restful break at home with your family. What did you all get up to? Let us know in school :)
Spring is finally here and hopefully we'll see some better weather soon. In the meantime, please remember to wear a coat to school, we go out to play no matter how cold it is and even if it's a little bit wear. Wrap up warm!
Maths: This week we have been working on adding and subtracting amounts of money. When you go to the shops, ask your child how much the items cost. See if they can work out the change from £1, £5 or even £10.
Are you wondering how you can help your child with their weekly Big Maths test? Ask them which level they are on and have a look at the test papers below. See which question(s) they tend to make mistakes with each week and write them a few more, just change the numbers slightly. Once they've managed to get those right, have a look at the next paper up, how many questions can they do on that one?
Literacy: We are writing some instructions this week. We started the week making a vegetarian cawl (which was delicious). We'll be writing some instructions on how to make it by the end of the week. We're also working on our reading comprehension skills and we'll be doing some World Book Day activities too.
Cornerstones: We're doing Global Gourmet this half term! We've already started by sampling some traditional Welsh food and we'll be looking at food from all over the world, as well as coming up with recipes of our own. See the homework sheet link near the bottom of the page.
Welsh: Our current topic is Chwaraeon. The children will be revising sports and subjects in schools and will be learning to say and write what they like and dislike.
ICT: This term, we will be finding out what a Wiki is and learning how to write and create one.
P.E.: Don't forget, P.E. is every Tuesday and will be either inside or outside depending on the weather. We would like the children to bring in their P.E. kits and leave them in school to make sure they don't forget to bring them on the day. Trainers are essential!
Every week: Learning those times tables is absolutely crucial to the children improving their maths skills. Each week they have a game in their active learn account and we also ask that they spend just a few minutes on the Hit the Button games to really get to grips with multiplying. The link for the game is at the bottom of this page. It works on computers and tablets and is even available as an app! If they know their tables can they do the dividing questions? Can they use their skills to do their decimal tables? For example, 1x 0.8= 0.8, 2x 0.8 =1.6 etc.
Reading is the other homework we ask the children to do every week. It could be their reading book, it could be books in their active learn account, it could be a favourite magazine or comic, it could reading stories to their little brother or sister. Any reading is good reading!! It's really important that the children develop a love of books so please remember to focus on the positives when the children are reading and give lots of praise and encouragement.
Keep up the good work Year 4!
