Friday 10th January 2020

 

This week we have a lot of exhausted children but everyone has done tremendously getting back into the swing of work! We have begun our new writing topic based on 'The Invention of Hugo Cabret' - exploring the book and talking about the setting in a 1931 Paris train station... We have been exploring geometry - shape - in maths, using vocabulary such as parallel, perpendicular and angle to describe precisely. Next week we will be exploring line symmetry and hopefully co-ordinates. This terms theme is 'Travels in Time' and we have received a letter from Doctor Who asking us 'Why do people travel?' as our research challenge.

The spelling and times tables homework is below, for a test on Friday 17th January

 

Thank you!

Year 4 have been learning about Vikings this week - we've been getting a close up look at the design of longships and discussing what made them such ideal transport. We've started designing our own Viking jewellery with traditional motifs too. In English we've looked at newspaper headlines and the features we will need to include when we write our own articles next week and in maths we've done lots on co-ordinates and how to plot them. Our new spellings are apostrophes (again) but for irregular plural nouns and will be tested on Friday 31st January. We will need to revise the 7x tables too - a few children can work the answer out but cannot recall them in 6 seconds which is the speed we need to aim for...so let me know if you've mislaid your Times Tables Rockstars logon! Have a lovely weekend everyone!
