Saxon Saga!

SANY0204

Hello,

Thank you to so many of you for being able to make it to our assembly last Friday where we got to show off all of the work we had done about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. I’m sure you’ll agree that the children really did put on a great performance which entertained everyone. Every child contributed to the success of the assembly; from larger acting roles to the making of props.

We hope that you enjoyed the wide range of learning that the children have done in relation to this topic as well as seeing the amazing home learning that children have shown. Below are some pictures of the event to give you a flavour of the show:

Just a reminder that we have updated abacus and mymaths ready for the half term. This is also the ideal opportunity for children to become involved more in depth projects from our home learning pyramids.

We hope you all enjoy the half term holidays and make sure that you enjoy yourselves!

Thank you,

We are always learning!

Hello,

We hope you are looking forward to our year group assembly this Friday!

This week we have continued our look at the Saxons, turning our attention to the life of Alfred the great. At the end of our unit the children will be writing a biography of the life of Alfred the Great, they are already very enthusiastic. Hopefully the children will already have come home filled with facts about this Saxon king, however this does present a great opportunity for doing some research as part of their home learning.

In maths we have returned to our exploration of fractions. It is vital that children gain a strong grasp of what fractions are in a meaningful context; perhaps you could support your child’s learning in this by asking them to divide the laundry into quarters, or ask the children what fraction of the ingredients they will need for everyone’s dinner.

We can’t wait to see what imaginative things the children will do for their home learning!

Thank you,

Assembly Preparation

Hello,

This week in year 4 we have started our assembly rehearsals and everyone has been given a script to help them learn their parts.

To make this assembly exciting for those watching, it would be really nice if the children come in costume as their role. An example of a Saxon below:

A reminder that My maths and Abacus home learning is set each week. Thank you to all the children that do go on each  week as is our expectation. If you have trouble finding time to go onto these home learning websites, or have difficulty accessing the internet, our computing suite is opening each morning from 8am.

Thank you,

Year 4 Team
