Year 4 week ending 22.11.19

Year 4 week ending 22nd November 2019

This week we have been learning to:

Numeracy – we have been converting different periods of time, such as minutes, hours, days, weeks and months.

Literacy – we have been writing a newspaper report based upon our novel "The Secrets of Vesuvius".

Expressive Arts – we have begun rehearsing our Christmas production and making our product to sell at the Christmas fayre.

How you can help at home:

Numeracy –  we are focusing on increasing the speed of the Learn It's (part of our Big Maths) that are tested on a Friday.  The learn it's may look simple however we are aiming to increase the fluency which the children can complete these so that they become second nature to them.  When tested in class, they have 60 seconds to complete the learn it. Please can you practise these at home, aiming to beat the time which you can complete them.  The questions may be reversed, such as 8 x 2 or 2 x 8.  The children know which learn it's they are on and the questions will be written at the bottom of the blog.

Literacy / Expressive Arts – please find underneath the lyrics for one of the songs in our Christmas play.  We would like the children to learn these in readiness for our next rehearsal.

Spellings – please remember to practise your spellings. Try writing them and combing them in sentences or even a story to show you understand them.

Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips
