Welcome back! We hope that you have had a lovely and relaxing half term.

Our new topic for this half term is Road Trip USA! During this topic, we will be learning all about the United States of America and some of the physical and human landmarks in the different states. We will also be looking at some of the Native American tribes that lived there throughout history and their ways of life. In our English lessons, we will be continuing our work on Aladdin and the Enchanted lamp and writing our own endings to the story, as well as writing a newspaper report. In maths, we will be moving on from our place value unit to focus on mental and written column methods of addition and subtraction. We will be practising our times tables daily, focusing on the 6, 7 and 8 times tables. In science, we will be learning all about electricity and what it is used for as well as creating our own circuits in class. Please have a look at our knowledge organiser attached below for more information about what specific topics we will be learning about. We are also looking forward to expanding our knowledge and learning new skills in computing lessons, music lessons, PE lessons, RE lessons and so much more! 

Our whole school rules are:

1. Be ready

2. Be respectful

3. Be safe

PE

Our PE days this term are a MONDAY and WEDNESDAY. Please make sure that your child's PE kit is in school for these days, including trainers. We will NOT be going swimming for the foreseeable future due to Covid-19 but we will keep you updated if this becomes possible later in the year. 

Homework

Homework will be set for the children online each week on a Friday. The children have log ins in their reading records and we have gone through how they can access their homework online in class. Any questions please just ask.

In addition to this, the children will have weekly spellings, which we ask pupils to practise alongside doing their homework. Spellings will be tested and new spellings set on Fridays. Children will also be tested on their times tables daily and we ask that they learn these at home as much as possible!

Reading Books

Library books will be changed as often as possible in the classroom. Children can access Accelerated Reader tests at home and in school daily which they will need to pass to choose a new book in the classroom. They can also access these at home using their Year 4 launchpad.
