Welcome to Year 4L!
Year 4L have achieved a great deal during our time together so far. I have been extremely impressed with the hard work and look forward to our next term!
Keep it up 4L!
All children seemed to thoroughly enjoy our topic of Ancient Egyptians, and have created some fantastic pieces of work from this theme. Sadly, we must leave them behind and begin our new topic 'Knights and Dragons', where our focus will be fiction.
Our new 'know a novel' book will be 'How To Train Your Dragon' by Cressida Cowell, which is a fantastic book and will allow us to let our imaginations run wild!
Come and have a look in the classroom at our work!
We are now reading each night and every opportunity we have. The children have been enjoying their challenge books and some have already written their book reviews at home for them! We recently took the opportunity to visit Broughton Library and looked at the huge variety of different texts available for us to borrow, including audio books and DVDs! We began to recognise how the library organised the fiction and non-fiction books and tried to order books using the Dewey Decimal system! At the end of the visit, we were allowed to use our very special library account cards to take out some books for us to enjoy.
We really enjoyed our visit and can't wait to visit again with our families, so that we can continue to enjoy reading new books!
Now we are in Year 4, we know how it is important to know all of our number facts instantly! By the end of the year we should all know our times tables facts and be at the top of our Football League Challenge, so please encourage your child to practice each night! A huge congratulations to those few children who are already there!
Our skills that we have already learnt, will be practiced throughout each week, but any additional practice at home would be extremely helpful. This includes telling the time, written methods in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and counting forwards and backwards from any starting point, in different amounts, e.g. 6’s, 7’s, 8’s, 25’s etc.
