It has been good to enjoy a dry and crisp week as we move into late autumn.
PE this term has moved indoors and the children are practising their best gymnastic balances and movement across the apparatus. There are some very flexible and gifted gymnasts among your children. Sadly, the same cannot be said for us and our ageing knees!
In English, we have continued to look closely at the conventions and language of biographies. The children have started to write their introductions so if they haven't already brought in information about their chosen well-known person, they must do by Monday.
Science has been 'electrifying' as the children have explored buzzers used in games, the inside of a plug and also which resources are needed to make a circuit. Light-bulb moment stuff!
Having come to the end of our work on multiplication and division in Maths, we shall now be looking at length and perimeter. We are hoping for opportunities to get outside and use some practical skills to consolidate our learning so pray for some more sunny, clear days next week.
We wish you all a wonderful weekend,
The Year 4 team
Year 4 Home Learning Term 2 Week 3
Reading: Please read for 10-15 minutes every day and record what you have read in your Reading Journal.
Spellings: Spellings will be given out on Friday, please learn them ready for the following Friday
Activity: A final reminder to your child that they need to complete their research for the biography they began writing on Thursday and will complete before the end of next week.
They need to choose someone still living or not, who is well known and is remembered or will be remembered for their achievements. They should include photographs and bring in hand written notes or a word document to refer to as they will be writing it up in their books. Please encourage them to not just bring in a book to copy from. Retrieving information and writing it in their own words is an important comprehension skill.
In history, we have begun looking at the Industrial Revolution. We would like the children to research someone who made an impact on this pivatol point in history and produce either a poster or fact sheet.
