We hope you are keeping well and safe.
We would like to thank all the parents who joined us on Monday and Wednesday for attending St Peter’s first Virtual Parent’s evening. It was lovely to meet and chat with all of you about the fantastic work the year 4 children have been doing. We are extremely proud of how far the children have come and we look forward to continuing their learning journeys into Spring term.
In English this week, the children have been working hard drafting and editing their final writes on ‘How to take care of your snowman’. Here the children have used a great range of skills such as causal conjunctions, time adverbials and snowman nouns. We will now continue to publish our snowman leaflets, so keep your eyes peeled as we will be putting some on the blog next week!
In Maths, we have been using our multiplication and division skills to answer multistep word problems. In order to reach a correct answer, the children needed to read the question very carefully, highlight any key information, decide what operation they needed to use and then use a suitable strategy such as grid method or short division. Next week, we will be starting our fraction unit and exploring equivalent fractions and their decimals, adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator, and looking at the different fraction representations.
Some quick reminders:
- The final Virtual Parent’s evening is on Monday. Please check your times. If you have any issues please contact the school office.
- Please send your child in their PE kits on Thursday for CM sports.
- Please remind your children to bring in their home spellings, reading passports and vocabulary homework.
- We have noticed a remarkable difference in the children’s timetables since using TTrockstars, so please encourage children to log on at home and complete the sound check. This is very similar to the times table test they will be sitting in May-June 2021.
We hope you all have a great weekend and looking forward to another brilliant week ahead!
