Our Topic in terms 5 and 6 is 'Groovy Greeks'. This topic will be a cross-curricular topic focussing on the Ancient Greeks and their legacy. Some of the activities will include debating, making Greek busts, Olympic games etc.
A list of the spellings we will be covering this term can be found by clicking here (To be updated). Each week your child will be expected to learn their spellings for a test. Archimedes and Berners-Lee will be tested on a Friday and Hubble will be tested on a Monday due to timetabling. All children will have a week to learn their spellings. You can also find a copy of the spelling for the term in your child's reading record.
Some activities you may wish to use with child to help them learn their spellings are:
Each week your child should be practising their times tables. They will be completing a speed grid in school each week, where they have 6 minutes to answer as many times table questions as they can. This will then be marked and the class teacher will identify a times table for your child to learn each week.
Activities to help you and your child:
Use the times table grid below to practice at home. Remember you have 6 minutes in which to complete the grid.
A 'Hot' speed grid can also be found below.
After completing the speed grid, your child will move onto a differentiated Mental Maths paper each week .
We have an open door policy and are always happy to meet with you. A face to face discussion is usually preferable after school - except on a Wednesday when we have a staff meeting. However, we appreciate this may not be convenient for everyone, so feel free to contact us using the following options, should the need arise:
Since we have a 48 hour email response time, this is not always the most efficient means of communication. However, if necessary our email addresses are as follows:
Mrs Ingles, Berners-Lee - email@example.com
Mr Razaq, Archimedes - firstname.lastname@example.org
Miss Meiners, Hubble - email@example.com
Please bear in mind that Year 4 pupils are not usually allowed to walk home unattended without an older sibling or adult. If this is completely necessary please give written permission to the class teacher.
This illustrates the Quality First Teaching strategies that all children access on a daily basis, plus any extra interventions for Reading, Writing and Maths that the children are provided with if necessary.
