Welcome back to the Summer Term!
We have a fun packed term ahead of us!
We will be learning about Herefordshire farming and visiting a hop and apple farm (Stocks Farm - http://stocksfarm.net). In science, in conjunction with The Countryside Trust and Helen Jones, we will be learning all about food chains, classification and habitats. Our filming project this summer will be part of SFX's focus on 'When I grow up...' and we will be using the apps Green Screen and IMovie.
We will also finish designing, making and racing our battery powered car. In RE we will be learning about New Life, spreading the Good News and the wider Catholic community. Finally, to add to the excitement, we have a county cricket player (Miss Felstaed) supporting the development of Year 4's bowling, catching and running skills.
Please visit our class blog where we upload photos and work from the children.
Password and address can be obtained from school.
We are running a 10 minute a day reading challenge. Reading records will be checked every Thursday afternoon - please make sure an adult has signed them daily.
Please read every night to an adult and talk about what has happened in your book.
There is an excellent choice of books on this website: https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk/new-book-releases/school-reading-list-books-of-the-month/
Don't forget to keep practising the speed of your times tables - you will need to answer each question in 6 seconds for the Times Table Check in June. It really supports your calculation and problem solving.
This year we are using Learning Logs and each fortnight you will undertake some research to support your topic learning. There will also be times tables to learn.
Spellings are based on the Year 3 and 4 word list (see below). They will be given out on a Thursday and ten words plus one word from the week before, will be tested on the following Tuesday.
Please have your summer and winter PE kit in school at all times. We will try to get outside as much as possible even if it is a bit chilly.
Maths homework will be set using Mymaths
