Year 4

Weekly Update of w/e 17th November 2017

We have had a brilliant week in year 4. The children have worked extremely hard in maths to solve correspondence problems using bar modelling. We are very proud of how much they have developed their understanding over the course of the week. In English, the children have written some imaginative and well written stories based on an underwater scene. The ideas and the vocabulary the children have incorporated into their stories has been great to see. In addition, the children also created a healthy meal (using all the necessary food groups) in the form of a rainforest picture. They loved this lesson and the results were excellent.

Next week ……


We will be focusing on the children’s use of grammar in their writing. Thhy will be looking at the different techniques that will make their writing effective and how to apply them accurately.


We will be moving onto our new unit on problem solving relating to different measures.

Science and topic

For our topic work this week, we will be creating a rainforest scene painting based on a picture. In science, will be moving on to look at the human digestive system.

Homework (to be handed in on Wednesday)

English – Workbook – Page 31 and 32 – P8a/b/c

Maths – Times Table Rock Stars – Please make sure you encourage your children to log and practise their times tables as much as possible. Some of the children haven’t been logging on and this is a key skill they all need to practise.

Reading – Children should read to an adult three times each week in order to move up the reading ladder.

Spellings – The word walls will go home on Monday night and children must complete their four sentences ready to be bought back in on the Tuesday. These must be completed in order for the children to complete related activities throughout the week.


We would like the children to bring in some pictures of a rainforest scene or animal that they would like to base their painting on.

PE and Swimming

Acer – Swimming on Tuesday and P.E on Thursday

Pine – Swimming on Tuesday and P.E on Thursday
