Year 4 Week 48 2014

Julius Ceasar's Romans invading British soil 
It was lovely to see many of parents at our parent teacher meetings this week, it was a great opportunity to be able to share with you what good progress the children are making.

In Literacy, we have completed our unit of work on instructions with the children planning and writing their own set for trapping a mythical creature.

In Maths, the children in Mrs Scannell’s group have been practically exploring number bonds to 10 and 20.   Mrs Pond-Barrett’s group have been adding two 4-digit numbers involving ‘carrying’.

In Art, the children have completed their Roman mosaics and have painted their clay relief sculptures of Roman soldiers.
Celts, ready to defend their settlement 

In Music, the children have been continuing to learn the songs that will form part of our Christmas production.

We have also completed our first read-through of the script and we are really pleased that some of the children have already learnt their lines!  Thank you for your continued support at home! – The children need to remember that they need to bring their scripts into school every day.

Homework – Please see homework folders.

Maths – Please continue working on recalling times table facts with corresponding division facts.
  • Mrs Pond-Barrett’s group – The children have an activity to complete using column addition.  Please see the enclosed examples of how to use the expanded or compact methods for addition if supporting your children with their homework.
