Good Morning Year 4!

Happy Thursday! How did you all get on with yesterday’s challenge of creating your own comic strips? Hope you had fun.

Thanks to Jade, Alfie and Jessica for sending me your comic strips. Well done!

Today, let’s get our times tables mastered! I would like you to go on TTRockstars and play 10 Garage and 5 Soundcheck games! If you want to then keep going, that’s fine too.

The challenge for today is for you to play a board game with your siblings or grown-ups. Before you play, read the instructions of the game carefully. Talk about the layout and features of the instructions. Then, design your own board game. Write instructions to explain others how to play it.

Hope you enjoy creating your own game and remember to send me pictures.

Remember to keep working on those packs and let me know if you are stuck or if you need more resources.

 

I miss you all and hope to see you soon.

Mrs Mathur.

Year 4 took part in a fantastic Viking workshop day on Monday 10th February, where they all pretended to be Vikings and had their very own Viking name for the day. It was a fun filled day in which the children learnt about the Viking traditions of days gone by. They learnt Viking dance, had their faces painted, learnt to write their names in Viking Runes and acted out some Viking myths. Overall, they all thoroughly enjoyed the day!

As a special finish to their French topic 'Au café', Year 4 had a surprise French breakfast.

 

Four children became waiters and the took orders in French for food and drinks from the menus the children had made. Afterwards they asked for the bill and paid in Euros.

 

The children loved the surprise and had lots to eat!

HOW YOU CAN HELP AT HOME

 

English

 

Listen to your child read every day for at least 20 minutes. 

 

Log any interesting words the children find in their reading books and encourage them to find out what the words mean, so they are able to use these words in their writing. 

 

Ask your children to write neatly when they do their homework. This should encourage the children to use what they have learnt at school. 

 

Ask your child to keep a diary of any interesting events that happen.

 

Maths

 

Practise their times tables with them up to 12 x 12 and their related division facts - e.g 12 x 12 = 144,  144 divided by 12 = 12.  Please encourage your child to log onto TTRockstars to practise their times tables. Children have been given their login's, however please do not hesistate to contact us should these be misplaced. 

 

Ask your child mental maths questions at home - for example asking the children to work out how much something costs or the change that is needed when shopping.
