Welcome back and we hope you have had a wonderful Easter Holiday. We are looking forward to an exciting Summer Term.
This term we will continue to have a strong emphasis towards learning our times tables so the children can be more confident with their recall facts and develop a stronger understanding of the inverse operation, division. Your child will be sent home with Weekly Spellings and it is still important to read as much as possible and we ask that parents listen to their children read and help develop a love of books. When you listen to your children read, this should be recorded in their Home School Diary and each read will count towards a reading prize!
In English, we will be reading "How To Train Your Dragon - How to be a Pirate", an exciting adventure story by Cressida Cowell.
In Numeracy, we will be focusing on Place Value; Developing our Arithmetic Skills; Multiplication and Division; and, developing our written methods of calculation.
During the afternoons, our topic for the first half of the Summer Term will be 'World War II' . The second half of the Summer Term will be 'Rock Stars' this is a Science topic based on sound.
PE will be taught on Monday mornings and Multi-Skills PE will be taking place on Friday mornings. It is important that the children have their Ghyllgrove PE kits at school so that they can join in with the sessions. Our PE kit is a white t-shirt with red shorts and trainers. Children with long hair must have their hair tied back and no jewellery can be worn during P.E.
Finally, we would like to remind all families to label your child’s clothing and equipment. This includes PE Kit, School Uniform, Coats and lunch boxes. All items must have your child’s name and class number. Lastly, may we remind you that we are a healthy school, we do ask the children have only water in the classrooms and at break time, the children can have a healthy snack of fruit or vegetable sticks.
Thank you and we are looking forward to working with you and your children in Year 4 during our Summer Term.
