Year 4 Weekly Review
Children fulfilling their potential in the heart of the community.
Week ending Thursday 4th March 2019
Maths: This week we learnt how to solve fraction problems which involved calculating quantities. We then completed an end of unit fraction test as well as a Maths MOT to assess the children’s rapid recall. After the holidays, we will be starting to look at decimals: in particular tenths and hundredths.
English: We started off this week by researching an endangered animal, we then used all the factual information we had found out to write a non-chronological report on our chosen animal. During the first week back, we will be starting a new book entitled The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo. We will start by using the first few chapters to summarise, predict and explore the story so far.
PSHE: This week we discussed how we can cope with feelings of loss and grief. Our first PSHE lesson of the Summer term will focus on the importance of looking after our health and well-being.
Take Home Books: We are so pleased that so many children are changing their take home books so regularly and are enjoying the opportunity to read quality texts. If you have a surplus of these books at home, please bring them back into school so other children can enjoy them too. Lots of the colour bands are running rather low!
Violin/Cello Concert: We hope you all enjoyed the concert on Monday and were as impressed as we were with the progress that all the children had made. We cannot wait to see them perform at The Royal Festival Hall on Wednesday 5th June!
We wish you all a restful and happy holiday and would like to thank all the children for their effort and determination to reach their potential this term. Well done!
Mrs Ponsonby and Miss Grunsell
