As we reach the end of another week, I'd like to say a big well done to the children in Ash Class for their hard work in our assessments this week. They completed a reading paper and 2 maths papers, trying their hardest in all of the tests. Super work!
Next week is the final week of term and we've got a busy week ahead. In English, we will be writing our own versions of 'Leon and the Place Between', thinking about all the magical items that the character might see when they enter the box in the circus. There will be a big focus on description and using expanded noun phrases to create images in the reader's mind. In Maths, we continue learning about decimals, thinking about how to represent 1/2, 1/4 and 3/4 in decimals. We'll be finishing off our Science unit on 'Light' with a look at how periscopes work, and in Geography we will be rounding off our learning by writing our final piece all about migration. Not only this but plenty of PE, Art, Music and other learning too!
As I look ahead to the summer term, please can I urge you to spend time practising times tables at home. All of the children will be sitting the Year 4 multiplication check in a couple of months' time and I really want them to feel confident, prepared and ready for this. The tables need to be learnt with instant recall so that the children can answer within the 6 second per question time limit. Your support at home with this is invaluable, so thank you.
