Welcome to 4B’s class page; a page that is going to fill up with all the amazing work, activities and experiences we are going to have this year in Year 4. We have so much planned so keep coming back to see our latest learning.
Happy New Year!
This year in 4B we are starting with a bit of a mystery...
Something strange is going on in Year 4...
There have been lots of little notes, so small you can only just about read the writing and they have been hidden in strange places. Whoever they're from, they seem to like our new area...
Hopefully, we will be finding out soon who they're from!
Find our learning leaflet below for ideas for home learning this half term.
DANCE MAT TYPING!
In computing, we are learning how to touch type to help us with our blogs!
If you would like to practise at home, follow this web link and see how fast you can type!
If you go down in the woods today...
We went into the forest on our first day back. We were looking for textures by taking zoomed in pictures using the i-pads.
TIMES TABLE ROCK STARS!
Are you a wannabe? Or do you 'wannabe' a Rock Star!?!
This half term we have taken learning our times tables up a decibel. Three times a week. 4B will be completing times tables to improve our memory and recall. To assist with this, children can log into Times Table Rock Stars online at home and practise using all the fun games and competitions. A username and password has been sent home with all the class. The teachers have set times tables to learn in the Garage area but then there are lots of other ways to practise including challenge someone to a x table battle or playing in a festival!
See if you can get the most coins or the fastest speed in your class as we will have weekly challenges as well as moving up the Rock Star chart. Remember that if you complete TTR that this can be recorded as home learning!
Please ensure that your child has their PE on the following days:
4B will be going swimming in the Summer Term 2019.
In 4B we complete 4 pieces of home learning a week. This could be reading, practising our handwriting, going to a club, saying our times tables or practising mental maths, completing our SPaG homework, cooking, visiting a museum or event.
For each piece of home learning, your child will receive a merit which then contributes to a half termly home learning award. Please make sure you record their home learning in their home learning diary provided and ensure it is signed, dated and in school each day.
15 merits = Bronze award
20 merits = Silver award
25 merits = Gold award
Mental Maths Monday
There will be a Mental Maths test every Monday. Please ensure you help your child to practise their mental methods for times tables, addition and subtraction.
Times Table Thursday
Every Thursday we are completing our times tables using a grid. The children have 10 minutes to complete different times tables. We have started with the 1,2,3,5 and 10 so please start practising.
SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) Friday
There will be a SPaG test every Friday. Please make sure SPaG books are in school on a Friday and ensure your child completes their SPaG homework.
