Year 4 Curriculum Notes – 19/10/20

Last week was an assessment week – the children should be really proud of their efforts. We are nearly towards the end of our first half-term in Year 4- Wow! We have nearly made it!

In literacy this week we will have a SPAG focus. In maths we will be looking at formal and informal methods for addition and subtraction.

As I am sure you are aware, Year 4 sit a timetable test towards the end of the year. There are two main areas we need you help with: recalling all the timetable facts from the 0-12 timetables, and giving children the opportunity to practise entering them on a keyboard or I-PAD as often as you can.

We have been using this website in school to practise on, but there are many similar websites out there:

On Friday children are welcome to dress in Halloween clothes. They will also be having party lunch in the hall. Children are asked to bring in a contribution of £3. They should have received a letter about this which should be their bag.

Parents’ Evening times have also been given out, these will also be in your child’s bag.

We will continue with the topic of the Victorians and we aim to complete our William Morris inspired pencil cases by the end of the week. This will more than likely happen on Thursday. Pencil cases will remain in school over the half-term for assessment purposes but will be coming home eventually! We have had some magnificent sewers, hopefully we have done ‘our bit’ in inspiring the next generation of textile designers!

Children came home with their prototype of their pencil case this on Friday, some are unfinished but the children were desperate to take them home and were extremly proud of themselves.

BOOK FAIR IS EXTENDED UNTIL MONDAY! THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE SUPPORTED SO FAR!

Reading Target:  Understand what they read, in books they can read independently, by: identifying how presentation contribute to meaning

Homework this week will be maths based. It will be handed out on Wednesday and will be due in after half-term.

A reminder that items entering school from home should kept to an absolute minimum. Small toys, trading cards and other such items are not allowed in school at the moment. We thank you for your support with this.

We are still keen to do celebration assemblies on Fridays, so if there are any achievements from outside school that you wish to share please photograph them and send them to   enquiry@fouroaksprimary.bham.sch.uk    FAO Mrs Glover/ Mr Cope.

Have the most amazing half-term and thank you for all your support trying to get back to some sort of normality.

Team Year Four.
