Spring Term learning - Europe and France.

 

This term, our learning focus is Geography. We have been using the atlases to look at the Countries within Europe, and learning about their culture, food, history and physical features. If the children have visited anywhere in Europe, it would be lovely to have some photos to put up on our display. We would like to see how far we have travelled around Europe. Please email the office if your photographs are digital, and we can print them here. Many thanks for your continued support.

Maths homework

Children will be given one piece of maths homework every Monday which will need to be returned by Friday (the homework will be linked to their learning in the classroom from that week). In addition to the weekly homework, children are expected to know all times tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of year 4. With this in mind, children should practise their times tables at home, and can use TT Rockstars to help with this.

 

Reading

Children are responsible for changing their individual reading books. We don't expect children to read whole books to an adult, but should have read and discussed some with an adult before they can change their books. Please can the reading record to show the children have done this. We encourage parents to continue asking questions about the book while you read with your child, deepening their understanding and broadening their vocabulary, as well as adding comments about their progress.

 

Spellings

Spelling lists will be sent home every two weeks, and will be tested in school. Please help your child to learn these spellings at home. We have recently introduced 'Spelling Shed', which is an online site that allows the children to play games to learn their spellings and score points. Some lists will be tailor-made for the children's individual ability level, and some will teach the children spelling rules they need to be able to recognise and use. As well as the spelling lists of rules we teach in school, children are also expected to be able to read, spell and use the words below by the end of Year 4.

Topic: The Tudors (History focus)

 

We are learning about life in Tudor Times: looking at timelines, significant people and events. We are going to Portland Castle and Sandsfoot Castle on the 19th September to learn more about how our local area changed under King Henry VIII's rule during this period. We are also planning for some volunteers from the Tudor House to bring in some artefacts for us to learn about daily life in Tudor Times. We encourage children to bring in learning from home to share with the class.
