We're currently mad about Times-Table Rockstars, on here we can practice our times-tables with fun games and even battle other classes (we get very competitive). Your child should have their login details so they can play at home.
Your child has been given their Mathletics and Bug Club passwords and can complete additional work on there.

Welcome back to Autumn 2,
Topic: Carrying on our topic of the new year we'll be looking at Ancient Egypt. Together we'll produce work around what life in Ancient Egypt was like, pharaohs and pyramids and even the mummification process.
Science: You'll be instantly 'attracted' to our new topic of forces and magnets (see what I did there?). Our first science topic is definitely a fun one with loads of experiments and investigations all around how these forces work every single day.
Art and Design: Finally in Art we're working towards improving our observational drawings of nature and the world around us. Each week we're going to be practicing and improving our artwork by looking at proportion, patterns and pencil techniques.
We have 2 sessions of PE a week, our first session is Monday, where it is an outdoor lesson for a games orientated session. In addition to this on Tuesday we will have our indoor session focusing on dance and gymnastics. Furthermore year 4 pupils will continue to go swimming on a Wednesday afternoon. Pupils are required to bring the appropriate kit on these days which can be found on the school website/ prospectus.
Homework is set each week on Mathletics (for the maths homework) and various SPaG work to aid their learning in English. Their work is to be marked every Monday and new homework recorded Tuesday afternoon in their reading records.
Each pupil will have a personalised spelling list consisting of upto 10 words to learn for the following week, throughout the following week each pupil will get tested then receive a new list to be tested the following week.
