Welcome to Year 4!
Happy New Year and welcome back to school! I hope that everyone enjoyed the holidays and are refreshed and ready for a jam packed term?
We have started off this term by learning how to write our own list poems using similes, in Maths we have interpreted data on line graphs and pictograms, and in Science we have learned about human teeth and sculpted a model of our very own teeth out of clay!
Our history topic this term is Ancient Egypt, and we will be learning all about the Egyptians and what their daily lives were like. We are also going to have a go at creating our own mummies in Art. And be creating our own hieroglyphics alphabet.
We will be very busy in Maths this term, as we have a number of topics to cover. We are going to be learning about perimeter and shapes, followed by problem solving and calculations with decimal numbers. It is really important that the children continue to revise their times tables, as these facts are applied in most of our Maths lessons.
We will also be taking part in a Mini Olympics Competition in January which I am very excited about! More details to follow…
Please remember to read every day at home, and that our spelling and times table tests are every Wednesday.
Also ensure that your child has both an indoor and outdoor PE kit every day at school. They should be bought in on a Monday and taken home every Friday.
