Big Read - We are currently enjoying 'Varjak Paw' by S.F. Said.

What have we been up to?

Investigating the water cycle

Take a look at our mini water worlds we have created to try and mimic the water cycle.

When situated somewhere warm, we can see the droplets of condensation gathering on the lids of our cups and when the droplets get heavy enough, they rain down onto our cress plants.

Need some support with additional resources?

Please note: passwords for the following tools are available if you have lost or can't remember your login details. Please ask Mrs Twells or Miss Bamford for help with this.

Purple Mash

All homework is now set through our online learning platform called Purple Mash. Each child has been sent home with a password to access this home learning. New tasks will be set and checked by the class teacher each week.

Reading

MYON  is a fantastic way to encourage reading at home. The children enjoy the competitive element of getting awards and it is a great way to encourage reading for pleasure.

Spelling Shed

Spellings will be sent home weekly on Fridays.

We will carry out a spelling test on a Friday each week, so make sure you keep practising at home!

Times tables 

 Please continue to practice times tables. Games like Hit the Button can be a fun way to do this at speed.  There is a new national government test for every child in Year 4 which will be in the summer term. 

 Each Friday, children will take part in Club 99 - testing how accurate and quick their times table recall is.
