Week Ending: Friday 19th January 2018

In English:
This week,
we have been writing paragraphs about the Romans for our information booklet we will be making.

Next week, we will be editing, revising and redrafting our paragraphs so that they are ready to put into our booklets.

In Maths:
This week,
we have focused on using the columnar method for multiplication some children struggled with this and need to be using rockstar times tables at home to support their knowledge please

Next week, we will be looking at using the bus stop method for division and learning new vocabulary for this.

Also this week: we really enjoyed researching more about the Romans and getting to use the Ipads to aid us.

***************************   REMINDERS &  NOTICES  *******************************


 

Celebrate good times… come on! 

In the final week of this half term, we will be celebrating our Roman topic by watching a Roman film about Gladiators and also dressing up as a Roman for the day where we will be making our own Mosaics. 

The children would love to get dressed up as a Roman so we have selected this day to do that! They dressed very similarly to the Greeks and so if they still have their costume from last year they may want to use that. They can dress and Gladiators and bring in accessories, however, they will be stored during the day in the classroom to ensure they can focus fully on their learning for the days activities. 

Thank you very much!


CALLING ALL PARENTS/CARERS – Share your talents!!!

We would love to have some parents/carers in school to share skills and talents with us. You may do something that would be helpful to share with us so please speak to one of the year 4 teachers if you are interested.

Our topics are:

Spring 1: The Romans

Spring 2: The Celts and the Scots

Summer 1: Crash! Bang! Wallop!

Summer 2: Spain

If you could be any help, we would really appreciate it!

 

P.E. Kits
Please ensure that children have clean and complete PE kits in school, ready to be used. Thank you.
PE days: 4R– Monday & Thursday  4O– Tuesday & Thursday   4M– Wednesday & Thursday

 

Spelling:

As you know, spelling is now a massive part of the curriculum and we want your children to be fantastic spellers! Throughout the year, we aim to teach the children some new spelling conventions. Please have a look in side bar to the right of this page and you will see a spelling document – this will provide you with the spelling conventions we will look at throughout the year and all of the spellings your children need to know how to spell by the end of the year. If they can practise these at home as well as in school – that would be a massive help! Thank you for your ongoing support!!
