Te Fiti

Here are our Knowledge organisers for the first Spring term, have a little look, see what we are learning about. You can use these to support your children with their learning.

Welcome to Year 4. Our class is called Te Fiti. 

 

Key Information

Our teaching assistants are Miss Stevenson and Miss Johnson.

The doors open for school at 8:35 and close at 8:45. Please ensure you come to school for this time slot. School finishes at 3:05. At the moment all Year 4 children are to be collected by an adult. 

Our PE days change weekly at the moment so please make sure your child has the correct kit in school

(a red t-shirt, black/navy shorts and trainers) at all times.

 

Homework is given on a Friday, this includes spellings and times tables. It is due back the following Thursday.

We encourage children to read five times a week at home mostly with an adult but also independently. 

Today our Phunky Food Ambassadors presented their poster, they showed Year 4 some of the food you might find in an unhealthy packed lunch.

We are selling our Christmas trees as part of our enterprise, 50p a tree!

Year 4 have just completed their Design and Technology project, they have designed and created Christmas stockings ready to hang up. We will do the evaluation tomorrow but look at some of these amazing creations, most children hadn't sewed before! We are so proud of them.

Today 14 children read their manifestos to the class to try and gain votes. We then voted anonymously and selected our class school councillor. Well done... Ruby!

We have been learning about play scripts and we all wrote our own, today we performed them!

We learnt about Democracy today ready to write our manifestos for school council.

We completed an investigation to find out how sound vibrations change when the distance changes

Look at our teeth imprints in our apples!

We learnt how the food we eat passes through the digestive system, it was a lot of fun!

In History today we imagined we were Emperor Honorius and performed what he may have said in his letter when the Romans left Britain.

 

 

During the first half term we will be looking at:

 

Maths- Place value, addition and subtraction

 

English- Our main focus will be grammar, spelling and punctuation. We will do writing based on the Iron Man, this will include writing a newspaper report. We will do a carousel of daily Guided Reading as well as weekly comprehensions.

https://www.weareteachers.com/virtual-author-activities/

 

Top Marks – Loads of online games for maths (I’ve linked to hit the button which is great for learning times tables).

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

 

Read Theory – This needs signing up to and a ‘class’ setting up but I really rate it.  Child can read then answer questions which the adult can see on their portal.  Good way of tracking.

Pobble 365 – A picture a day with writing ideas and questions.  Might be a bit advanced for 5 year old but would be good discussion starters or “Tell me a story about this…” type activities. http://www.pobble365.com/
