By the end of Year 4 the children should be able to read and spell all the common exception words. Find them as a list below and in a Power point to practise reading and spelling at home.
Look at what we have been doing in Year 4.
Spring Term 2
Welcome back to school after the holidays. We have an exciting term of activities planned for the children. We will be continuing with our clarinet lessons, thank you to all the parents/carers who came to support their children at our recent concert. The children all played well and should be proud of themselves. It would be really helpful if you could encourage your children to practice between our weekly lessons, as in the summer term they will be playing in a concert in Derby.
This term we will be basing our writing around Gangsta Granny, a story by David Walliams. In Maths the children will continue to work on fractions, before moving onto decimals. Our Science topic is Habitats, the children will be exploring local habitats and also creating a small water habitat. In Geography the children will be learning about compass points and directions, so far they have made their compass by magnetising a needle.
National Poetry Day
We are very busy this week in Year 4 enjoying the season of Autumn. We have been reading and exploring a poem about Autumn which we will use to help us write our own poems later. It is National Poetry Day(Oct 4th) so we are experiencing being poets this week. To stimulate our ideas for our poems we went for an Autumn walk in the local park and are creating lots of art work from the natural objects we found. Here are some photos of us enjoying our Autumn walk.
Masters of Multiplication
In Year 4, we have been focusing on improving our multiplication skills through exploring and using our skills to play games. This year we are aiming to be masters of multiplication by knowing our times tables!
