Year 4 Week 13 2015

Researching the ancient City of Chichen Itza
WOW! - Another term completed and it seems to have flown by. It’s been a busy term and the children have really worked hard and they have made progress in their learning!
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your continued support throughout the term and for all of the help, guidance and support that you provide to your children at home.

This week in Literacy, we have completed our unit of work on settings. The children wrote descriptively about the Chocolate Room in Willy Wonka’s factory. They then designed their own confectionery

delights for their very own Invention Room. The children worked hard to plan and complete a ‘HOT WRITE’ piece describing the setting of their Invention Room and all the wonderful inventions hidden inside!

In Maths, we started to look at decimals. The children were recognising and using decimals numbers and understanding the place value in decimal numbers. The children have also spent some time on the Active Learn website, enjoying playing the games and revising and reinforcing their learning.

In Art, the children completed their mosaic masks. These have created quite a striking display outside the Y4 classroom!

In PE, we have completed our Aerobic dance unit of work. The children have thoroughly enjoyed this area of PE, especially the ‘Club Classics’ booming from the stereo! After the Easter break, we will be focussing on Gymnastics and Games. We will endeavour to go outside for our Games sessions, (Weather permitting), so please ensure that your children has the correct PE kit with them - T-shirt, shorts/ jogging bottoms, trainers, socks & a jumper/fleece. Please remind your children that their kits should be brought to school on a Monday ready for the week ahead.

Maths – The children have been allocated some games to play on www.activelearnprimary.co.uk (log-in& password details inside the journal)
Reading – Please continue to listen to your child read at least 5 times a week and either your children or the parents record any reading that they do in their journals.

Thank you for your continued support.
Have a lovely Easter break!
