Welcome back to the Spring Term!
We have a fun packed term ahead of us! You will be writing a persuasive letter to invite your favourite author into school. Following that, you will immerse yourselves in the dream world of The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore by W.E Joyce.
We will be learning about multiplication and division, fractions and decimals in maths and developing your knowledge of times tables - who can can answer the questions in 6 seconds!
In science we will be learning about sound and investigating how different instruments work and what sound proofing material is the most efficient. You will then have the opportunity to become a SFX, Year 4, qualified electrician.
Our local and God's community is our RE focus, followed by Giving and Receiving and Self-discipline approaching Lent.
Our Geography focus this term is Europe and you will be making a powerpoint about your favourite country to present to the class. We will then be learning about Volcanoes and Earthquakes and painting them in Art.
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 20 minutes a day reading challenge. An adult will read to your child for at least 10 minutes a day in school - can you match it at home?
Reading records will be checked every Thursday afternoon - please make sure an adult has signed them daily. To be a monthly book worm, you must have it signed.
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 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.
We are using Learning Logs for homework and roughly 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 Thursday and the test will be 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

Daily Task – Friday 8th May
Write a Prayer. The government (the people who run our country and make decisions) announced their plans for the UK yesterday. How do you feel? Are you pleased or disappointed? Are you worried about anything? Write a prayer thinking about the gifts that the Holy Spirit can give you to help with the next step. Will you ask for wisdom, patience, love?
