Year 4 Home Learning

Next week, we will be starting a new English unit. As part of their home learning, the children have been given the task of interviewing a family member or friend. They have been sent home with a selection of questions to choose from.  We are really excited about this unit and can’t wait to get started!

A copy of the questions we have sent home can be found here: Biography_Interview_Questions

BBC 500 Words Competition

On Wednesday, I did an assembly about the short story writing competition that BBC Radio Two is holding. We heard Honey’s exciting story; The Escape of the Chicken Nuggets. 

Lots of you have already read their story to me or told me what you are going to write about, and they sound wonderful! Comment below if you have a great idea for a story too.

Year 4 Homework 08.02.2018

We have had a fantastic week learning all about measure and how we use different units of measurement for different purposes. The children really enjoyed weighing objects around the classroom and guessing how many ml of water would fit into different containers. This week we have sent home some homework relating to this weeks math’s learning.

Year 4 Homework 17.01.2019

This week we began learning a new story that many of our year 4 children had fond memories of – Aliens Love Underpants! We chose this story because it is written in rhyming couplets and our focus in literacy over the next 2 weeks will be poetry. Over the weekend, why not practise reciting the story to your family and friends?

After rave reviews of the homework we sent last week, we have decided to send out another exciting piece of spelling and grammar homework for the children to complete this week. You can find a copy of the homework here: Aliens Love Underpants text Week 2
