Year 4

Highlight of the week

Look how creative the children in year 4 have been! Over the last two weeks, the children were asked to research and answer their own enquiry questions relating to the Egyptian Pyramids. Once they had finished researching, they chose how they would like to present their information. 

We had home-made pyramids, mummified monkeys and cats, a sugar cube pyramid, powerpoints, videos and even a stop motion video which will be uploaded to the history page soon. Amazing work, year 4!

Supporting your child at home

Please continue to learn and practice times tables on TTRockstars weekly.

Spelling tests will take place on a Monday.

Homework Expectations – Year 4 Homework will be set every Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Pupils are expected to complete every set task. Generally, homework will be one piece of written work or a worksheet and a set of spellings to learn. Additionally, children must read and record their reading in their diaries at least three times each week. Updates on what we have been doing can be found on the Year 4 class page or on Class Dojo. 

Work in books is expected to be of the same standard as work in school, with neat handwriting, diagrams in pencil and care take to include appropriate punctuation and good spelling. Dojo points will be awarded for good work and effort each week.
