Happy Holidays.

Please find below a copy of the Spring Curriculum letter.

Please note:

This will be another exciting term which ends with the Year 3 and 4 children putting on a performance of ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ and our celebrations for Easter. Dates to keep free for the production are: 19/3 Rehearsal to school, 20/3 afternoon production 2pm, 21/3 evening production 6pm.

We are planning to take the children on a residential trip to Sayers Croft activity centre near Guildford on 9th to 11th July.  There will be a parent’s meeting about this in the New Year and we will be looking to book places by the end of January.

Christmas Homework Task: As our new theme is Electricity, we would like you to research Electricity and how it was discovered. You could produce a poster, model, information booklet or use ICT to create a power point presentation. Be creative! We look forward to seeing your finished work to put on display.

We also would like you to make some snowflakes to create our immersive environment.

Due: Tuesday 9th January (our first day back).

Year 4 spelling lists

Friday 24th November 2017

Homework, due on Wednesday 29th November:

Maths: multiplying by 1 and O and dividing by 1. Children will need to answer a quick test to see if they have remembered the pattern and can apply their understanding to complete ‘missing number’ questions eg. 6 x 4 x 1 = 24, 15 x 0 =0 and 12 ÷ 1 = 12. There are helpful statements at the top of each page to help.

English: Find out about robot penguins and how they help scientists whilst practising your comprehension skills. Read the text carefully before answering the questions.

Spellings: The big Autumn Spellings test is next week so please make sure that All spellings are learned.

All homeworks are attached.

Year 4 team

 

 

Welcome to Daffodil Class! Our teachers are Mrs Higgins, Mrs Haddow and Mrs Jordon.

Our first topic of the term was the Romans.  We visited Fishbourne Roman Palace, where we tasted Roman food, tried on Roman costumes and had a go at weaving and Roman writing. We had lots of fun!  In class we loved making our own mosaics, as well as creating information leaflets about how the Romans lived.

We are now learning about India! Did you know that there are more than 150 languages spoken in India?  We are looking forward to learning more about Indian religions, games and festivals!
