The week ends with a fabulous Christmas Jumper Day. A big thank you for all your contributions to go towards Save the Children.
In English this week, we have nearly completed writing the text for our explanatory leaflets. We will complete next week and then publish our explanation leaflets for how to care for a magical snowman. Look out for them in the school office!
Just another reminder of links for suggested book reads for Year 4. Please find attached a suggested link for some challenging suggestions of new reading.
In Maths, we have started our Geometry unit. This week we investigated different problems associated with angles, properties of shape and different types of lines (parallel, perpendicular, diagonal). Next week we will continue with shape and look at symmetry with a Christmas theme. We will be continuing to focus on developing the children’s times table skills and related division facts as these will help the children in our upcoming fractions unit.
We have had many queries about greater depth questions on Sumdog. With every 100 questions completed there is a new and greater challenge.
In RE, we continue with our Advent unit looking at the ancestry of Christ through scripture relating to the Jessie Tree.
