Year 4

Welcome to Monkey Puzzle and Bonsai Base!

 This week

  • Thanks to your contributions, we will be having a visit from the Explorer Dome on Monday to teach us about volcanoes and earthquakes. We will also be making model volcanoes on Monday.
  • We will be beginning our new unit on addition and subtraction and will be practising counting on and back without exchanges.
  • We will be starting to look at instructions writing and how we can use imperative verbs to make instructions clear.
  • Will be talking about the choices we can make in life and what can help us if we are struggling to make good choices.
  • Will be continuing to practise skills that will help us with badminton and rugby in PE.

To support us at home, you might: 

  • We've started to learn about Hinduism as part of our RE topic. This week we talked about how people have many different 'faces' to them and how a person's religion might be one of these. Talk to us about what 'faces' you have in common and what is different about you (e.g. You might both be daughters, but only one of you is a mother...)
  • Practise our times tables with us. We might use TTRS or Hit The Button to practise or you could test us! This week, we have been practising our 9s!
  • Read with us regularly and sign our diaries for our 3 Reads check on Friday.
  • Practise our spellings with us! We might choose words from our personal spelling list or have a go at this week's spelling words which focus on apostrophes for possession:
  • You can let us know about your home learning on Seesaw - Y4 teachers will look on Seesaw every Wednesday.
