Hello and welcome to Year 4 Red Kites!
We have made a fantastic start to the new school year in the Red Kites Foxes classroom and we have already completed some great learning.
The weeks are going to whizz by and we have some great things coming up!
If you have any questions or something is worrying you, please come to see our teacher, Miss Thomas.
Literacy: In Literacy we have been focusing on the poem, The Spider and Fly. It is a fantastic poem all about a creepy spider and a tiny fly. We have been using this to learn more about the structure of sentences and will be continuing to focus on it again next week. Ask the children to tell you all about it! There is even a youtube video of the poem you can watch! In the last week of term we will be focusing on different grammar activities to make sure our writing is the best it can be!
Maths: In Maths we have been doing lots of work on place value as well as written and mental strategies. Next week we will be moving on to focusing on counting in multiples of 6, 7, 9 and 25.
Science: Our current Science topic is 'living things and their habitats.' We have looked at the different habitats around school, including the wildlife area. We have created branching databases to help us identify different minibeasts and we will be looking at how we can help our local habitat and endangered animals towards the end of this half term.
Swimming and PE
Just a reminder about Swimming and PE this term.
Our PE slot is on Tuesday afternoon. Please send children into school with a full, named PE kit.
Year 4 swim during the Autumn term only this year. We swim on a Thursday morning, leaving school just before 10am. Please send children into school with a named swimming costume and towel in a suitable bag.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask Miss Thomas or Mr Durkin.
Important dates coming up...
Half Term: 28th October -1st November
Inspired through Sport visited Holwell with two althletes from Team GB. Each year group participated in a workshop focused on sprinting. We did some relay races with Swans. All children participated beautifully and had great fun!
In Year 4 we have been making some incredible habitats for our homework! Have a look at some of our models!
