Year 4 Spring Term Learning Web

Spring Term Homework 2020 Year 4

 

 

This week our P4C question is….

This week we watched a video called ‘The Present’ based on this cartoon strip by Fabio Coala:

We had a really interesting conversation and came up with lots of big ideas: giving up, being ashamed, caring, disabilities, perseverance, tolerance and lots more.

This brought us to our question making, the question we voted for this week was:

‘Should you be treated differently if you have a physical disability?’

What do we do in Lime Class?

Useful Information & Links

Our new value for the term is Teamwork  and there will be weekly discussions and lessons based on its meaning and how this value can influence everything we do.

Homework is sent home every Wednesday and is due back on Tuesday of each week at the very latest, so it can all get marked. If you can get your homework back in early 3 weeks in a row, I’ll give you a week off homework. Any homework can be sent in via email to be printed or presented.

PE is every Tuesday (swimming) and Thursday and we’ll be trying to be outside as much as possible. So, please make sure you have your PE kit in school on those days. 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.

Swimming kit (in a plastic bag) includes

  • Swimming costume – one piece for girls and trunk style shorts for boys.
  • Towel.
  • Goggles (if a letter stating medical need is provided in accordance with Oxford County Council guidelines).

This term is jammed packed once again for Year 4. We have lots of exciting learning opportunities.  We are learning about the Roman Britain in our History lessons this term. It is a truly fascinating subject. Our Reading text will be Beetle Boy by MG Leonard. Our class novel will be The Midnight Gang by David Walliams

We have an exciting trip planned for this term…Yenworthy!

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.

This page will be updated as the term progresses. Please do contact me if you have any queries.
