Well it’s Year 4 here again….
It’s always an indicator of how close to the end of the year we are when we complete the end of year assessment week!
As I’m sure you are all aware we’ve been work really hard, concentrating on our assessments. Well done! to all the children, who have truly done their best to demonstrate their learning throughout the year.
In English we will be starting a new unit – Discussions. During which we will be further developing our writing skills: including fronted adverbials and topic sentences, whilst varying sentence structures. Of course, we will continue to work on perfecting our proof-reading and editing skills.
Mrs Meredith’s maths group will be performing further investigations involving larger numbers, next week.
Miss Eastlake’s group will be revisiting fractions as this is an area in which the children require a more secure understanding.
Year 4 will be starting a new unit in Science, Habitats. This unit involves us understanding how to classify living things, examining invertebrates and vertebrates, then developing an greater appreciation of the impact that humans have on specific habitats. It will link well with our trip to Cuffley and the very end of the year.
In our Harpenden topic we are continuing with our investigation of our local area and have been recording the differing land uses that surround us, in a variety of methods.
How can you support at home?
In Miss Eastlake’s Maths class those who know that they are still working on improving their knowledge of times tables, should keep up regular practice of these. Remember they are your basic maths building blocks!
Take advantage of the sunshine, sit in the garden and enjoy reading your favourite book. That is certain what the Year 4 team will be doing with any spare time.
This week, as everyone has worked so hard, the only homework is for Topic. The children have been asked to research a suitable person who could be commemorated by a blue plaque in Harpenden.
If you are one of the few people who have not yet to signed up for the Cuffley trip on Thursday 20th July, please get your child’s acceptance slip back to the office as soon as possible. Finally, if you know that your child is unable to attend the Cuffley trip, please make the office aware, thank you in advance.
Sorry, no photos today.
Thanks as ever for your support
The Year 4 Team
