Our P4C question this week is…



Spring Term Homework 2020 Year 4


What are we up to in Cherry Class?

We have returned triumphantly from our residential at Yenworthy, in Devon! A fantastic time was had by all, with the children facing a huge range of challenges – ziplining, rock climbing, and scrambling up a waterfall to name a few, not to mention making their own beds! We were all glad to enjoy a restful half term when we got back.

This is such an exciting term! We are writing a recount of our time at Yenworthy, ahead of our Sharing Assembly with Lime Class on the 6th March. We are continuing to explore the Romans through mosaics, drama, and with a Roman workshop on the 4th March. Between World Book Day on the 12th March (the Year 3 & 4 theme is Roald Dahl if you’d like to join in – can you guess what Miss Dunkley’s costume will be…?) and STEM week all about ‘our diverse world’, we will be jam packing in lots of work on fractions and soundwaves, as well as exploring forgiveness in our R.E lessons.

We are reading Alex Rider, Stormbreaker and learning lots of interesting ways to understand the characters.

We have earnt over SEVEN THOUSAND thumbs up so far this year, so are tantalising close to our target of 10,000 thumbs up. The movie afternoon reward will be on the cards soon, watch this space!

Useful Information

PE will be on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. This term our Tuesday P.E will be swimming, in the morning. Please make sure the children have a full PE kit in school. PE kit must include

  • a plain or school white or red t-shirt.
  • plain dark shorts.
  • trainers and pumps for all weather.

Homework will be given out on a Wednesdays and will need to be handed back in by Monday so that it can be marked in time to be given out again on Wednesdays. If it is handed in early 3 weeks in a row, then the reward is a week off from homework. It is school policy to complete homework weekly (or every 2 weeks for an ‘extra hot’ challenge!). T

Any homework can be sent in via email to be printed or presented.

All of Year Three and Four are using Class Dojo, an online way of recording the ‘thumbs up’ the children are awarded for living the school values, which parents can download and view for their own child. Please get in touch if you haven’t yet downloaded it and would like to – I can give you a unique code to login with.

We also will be doing regular times tables practice through a education website called Purple Mash, which has a wealth of activities to explore. The children can access this at home, so I will be sending home copies of their login details, if they would like to try out some of the games and challenges.
