Literacy - Mr Stink
Topic - How do planes stay in the air?

RE - Community
TOPIC Spring 2019
Out of this World! We have been asking questions all around our topic phrase 'Out of this World'. We have so far found out how our eyes work, how many moons are in our solar system and how planes manage to stay up in the air. We have also been using Google Docs and HWB to help us to present our work using Google Docs, Google Slides and J2Databases.
Topic - J2 Data - Create your own databases! 3D Roomstyler - create your very own room, screenshot, add to Google Docs and share with me!
Maths - One place decimals.
Reading - Make sure you are reading as much as you can at home. Remember it doesn't always have to be your school book... Any reading is good reading!
Spellings - Spelling tests are on a Monday morning and new spellings are given every Monday.
Times Tables - Do your best to use your pupil planner (page 22) to practise your timetables! Y4 focus on 6s 8s and 11s.
The Web Warriors - A view of life in Y4
When we came to visit they were quietly getting on with their work and they were using the learning pit to help them. We were impressed with their literacy skills, they started to use words like shocked, confused and puzzled . They were looking forward to their peer topic ‘Out of this World’ and on our next visit we are sure they will have lots to tell us.

Reading in Year 4
If you read with your child at home, can you please pop a little comment in their pupil planner so that we know that they have read that day at home.
If the pupil planners are signed by an adult every day, each child will receive a gold star on page 123 of their pupil planner. The more stars they collect, the better the rewards. Happy Reading!
