Welcome to Term 6!


We are going to continue with our topic term 5 topic for the next 3 weeks: 'All Things Bright And Beautiful'.  Our key question is 'Can we protect the world around us?' We will focus on science and geography, looking at the various ways that humans impact nature and our environment.  As part of this topic we will be responsible for supporting the Eco Council with developing the KS2 site in response to some of the wildlife area suggestions Y4 made in their formal letters to Mrs Whittaker last term.  More information about the topic can be found in the curriculum newsletter below.  Our first week will include the visit to Mottisfont for the art workshop.  Further information regarding follow-up work will follow shortly.  



Athletics will be on Monday afternoons: please ensure the children come to school in their P.E. kit.  

Gymnastics will be on a Wednesday: the children need to come to school in their P.E. kit.  



This will be set on a Friday afternoon and needs to be completed by Wednesday evening.  The children have brought home their login details for the different websites on a laminated A5 bookmark card.

This week's homework is:


Please find below a sheet with the Year 4 grammar and punctuation terminology set out.  This can be used as a revision sheet for learning this year.  It includes the terminology focussed on in class and on the SPAG.com homework.  We often find that the children forget the simple grammar terms as they start to learn more complex terms so it is worth going over nouns, adjectives, verbs, etc.  


 Times Tables

The children have started to complete the national multiplication check for Year 4.  Please follow the link to practise for this on PurpleMash: PurpleMash.

Those children who have already completed the multiplication check should redo 3 activities on Mathletics that they have scored lower than 85%.  There are also additional problem solving quests available for those who would like an additional challenge.
