Key Information:

  • A wide selection of quality books have been purchased for this class this year and your child is encouraged to take home a book every day. Each time you sign to show your child has read at home, they will receive a marble towards their team jar. The team with the most marbles at the end of the week will be crown team of the week!
  • Homework will be set on Friday and due in the following Friday unless stated otherwise on the homework (A longer time will be set for projects)
  • Spellings will be learnt at school and tested on Mondays. Please click on link: school-links-spellingjournalyear4southwark-1
  • In your child’s homework diary, they will have a green stamp at the end of each day to show they are following our school’s ‘Good to be Green’ behaviour policy. If they do not get a green stamp it is because they have not ended the day on a green card or have received a red card during the day. You will be notified by text if a red card consequence has occurred.

Year 4 Weekly News, Week Commencing 19th July

The last week! We’ve made it! What a journey!

Just one more week of learning before freedom for the summer!

 

Here’s what we will be learning next week:

Maths- We will be thinking about position and movement on a grid

English- We will be continuing our writing about a forest scene and editing our work.

Our class read will also be linked and if you would like to read along, it is Rumaysa by Radiya Hafiza

PE- We will be working on gymnastics skills, balances and body shapes.

RHE- We will be thinking about feelings of grief and loss.

History- We will be continuing our exploration of mummification and the afterlife

Science- We will be continuing our final topic, Electricity

During this hot weather, please ensure your child comes to school with a water bottle. It may also be a good idea to bring a hat for playtimes as there is little shade in our areas. Children may bring sun cream if they are able to apply it themselves.

As always, feel free to contact us with any questions.

Thank you again for all your support. We have enjoyed out time with you and wish you luck in Year 5!
