Home learning for Maths this week has been set on Mathletics. Please spend at least 30 minutes working your way through the activities throughout the week. This week in class we have been focusing on perimeter and area.
Please continue to practise your time tables for the Times Table Challenge every Friday. It is vitally important that children have a sound knowledge of their times tables, in order to increase their processing speed in Maths. By the end of Year 4 the expectation is that children know all of their times tables up to 12 x 12. It would be greatly appreciated if you could support our efforts in class by helping and encouraging your children to learn these at home. If you would like a times tables sheet for the Times Tables Challenges, please talk to your child’s class teacher who will be happy to help you.
Buster’s Book Club
Please continue to read for Buster’s Book Club every night. Which class can read for the most amount of minutes, Chestnut or Birch? Ensure that you are recording and signing your child’s reading record on a Wednesday evening and they have their reading record in school daily.
Weekly spellings have been updated in your reading records (Birch) and Chestnuts will be sent home on a sheet. Please ensure that these are learnt and will be tested next Thursday.
Next Tuesday 28th February is Shrove Tuesday. As part of the Year 4 RE curriculum we will be looking at the Christian Festival of Lent and exploring the reasons why Christians eat pancakes on this day. We will be decorating and eating pancakes of our own. If your child has any allergies to pancakes, Cadbury’s chocolate spread, golden syrup, lemon juice, sugar and bananas please let your class teacher and the office know. If there are no issues there is no need to inform us.
Thanks for your continued Support.
Year 4 team.
