This week in year 4:

During our English lessons we will be developing a success criteria for different features that are used in a diary entry in order to be able tow rite our own diary entry from the perspective of Annie - a character from the story we are reading called 'Storm' by Kevin Crossley-Holland.

In Maths, we will continue with our place value work, starting to move onto looking at negative numbers which is a new topic for children. During this week, they will complete a place value review quiz in order to see what they have understood since we have started.

Science, we will continue to look at Living things and their Habitats. Some fantastic homework has been produced alongside this topic.
During DT, we will be experimenting with different materials and whether they are waterproof or not. This will be based around looking at Tsunamis and what materials would be best to use during one.

ICT will be based around internet safety and will be lots of discussion based about how we stay safe on the internet.

Children will take part in PE twice in the week, focussing on athletics with Mr Sanderson in preparation for our indoor athletics competition at AMVC on the 5th December.

Children will have both their spellings test and their Tackling Tables test on Friday.


Please continue to work with their spellings, times tables and reading. Once you have read with your chid, please sign their planner for me to see on Friday, therefore I can award them a Dojo for their effort.


Have a good week :-)
