Another grand week in school!! This week we have begun looking at and learning all about persuasive writing. I know lots of the children could tell me the kind of things they say when they want to persuade parents to get them things; all I can say is there must be lots of tidy bedrooms out there and well washed dishes! . In maths we have covered coordinates and symmetry - a bit tricky in places but on the whole a good unit of maths work. In Computing we are continuing to produce power point presentations to provide information about "Teeth and the Digestive System". We are hoping to include videos of ourselves in them and links to other places on t'internet! The spelling results were good this week with 10 of the children scoring top marks! Please remember to keep up the home reading and the spelling practise .
Well I think that's all for the moment so tata. Forwards we go... into week 5! The penultimate week!
Home reading, as always, continues to be a high priority within school. Please help to improve your child's reading by listening to them read each night and questioning them about the books they are reading.
Spellings for this half term are on our class spelling page and a weekly test is usually done on Friday. Again please help your child by helping them to learn their spellings. Also check out the "Topmarks" website on our website links page. There are lots of super spelling games to help your child with their spellings.
Should you need to speak with either myself or Mrs Worden, please do not hesitate to come in and see us after school or make an appointment.
Don't forget the direct link to the Times Tables Rockstars student login page. ALL pupils have a user name and password for this web site which school has subscribed to to help the children learn their tables. If your child has lost theirs just bob in and see Miss Hamilton or Mrs Worden - we kept a copy of all the user names and passwords in case any got lost in the perilous journey from school to home!! I have now given out the user names and passwords to those children who said theirs had gone walkabout... so, no excuse - get times tables rockin' on the rockstars website!
Don't forget to check out the games on the website links. I have also added some grammar songs so the children can learn the different terms for grammar in sing-song fashion! Check them out!
I have also added the Year 4 spelling list to the spellings page. Children in Year 4 are expected to be able to read AND spell the words on these lists! Although some words do appear in the weekly spellings to learn at home, many are spellings which the children should know "in addition" to those they are learning at home. Again, please help your child to practise these spellings also... No rest for the wicked eh!
