Welcome to Year 4 Hermit Crabs, Pufferfish and Seahorses!
Spring Term - Water!
Last half term, the children had a very exciting start to 2020 learning all about pirates. They produced some incredible writing based on the book Treasure Island and they created some beautiful watercolour art work based on the famous picture, 'The Great Wave', by Hokusai. The children have really enjoyed linking their learning in Geography and Science to our overall topic of water, and WOW - what incredible water cycle models they made over half term! Thank you to all grown-ups for your help with this!
We will be arranging a parent-teacher meeting, at a date yet to be confirmed, to discuss times-tables in Year 4 as there is an upcoming national assessment of this in the Summer term. Keep your eyes peeled for the meeting date, where we will explain in more detail what the assessment entails.
In the mean time, please, please practise times-tables as much as possible with your child at home. This can be done for just a couple of minutes a day, perhaps on way to school or while eating breakfast!
