Week 17

Good Morning Year 4 and welcome to a brand new week (week beginning Monday 13th July 2020)! Usually we'd be breaking up for our Summer holidays next week so this will be the last week of the usual lesson routine. 

 

This week is a bit more of a 'normal' week so in English we will be moving on to diary writing and Maths will be recapping our work on Place Value.

 

Our Learning Challenge this week will be focused on Europe so we'll be investigating the countries which are located in Europe as well as finding out about their Capital Cities. We'll take a deep dive into researching one of the countries and researching key facts to create a fact file. Lesson two will be looking at the flags of these countries and identifying some more information about the physical geography of these countries. There are lots of extension tasks available too including a fun anagram activity as well as some work on identifying countries in the EU. RE will be continuing our Identity and Belonging lessons and will be looking at some of your characteristics that make up your identity. There is also a Spanish lesson all about colours on Friday.

 

Remember to continue to work on your daily activities too, these are key skills that will help you when you return to school. Reading (even just for a little while) every day will massively help with your comprehension, language and inference skills. Completing Accelerated Reader quizzes can really help you to see whether you're getting a good grasp of the key parts of the books you are reading or if you might need to re-read them to improve your understanding. Cursive handwriting is a non-negotiable expectation in Year 5 so the more you practice, the more likely you are to achieve your pen license! Spelling practice is also incredibly important - as you know, we have regular tests and this will all help towards achieving your writing objectives! Times tables are a core skill in Maths and we use them all the time. If you can be confident in your times tables and can recall them at speed, you'll be giving yourself a huge advantage. In a similar way, number bonds to 10, 100 and 1000 are also areas we use in Maths all the time so the more you practice these the better! Number bonds are knowing which 2 numbers add together to make 10, 100 or 1000 so for example 67 + _ = 100. I know my number bonds to 10 so 7 + 3 = 10. Next I need to make 90 because I already have the 10 from 7+3 so 60 + 30 = 90 therefore 67 + 33 = 100. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button is a great website to practice your times tables and number bonds.

 

Thursday 16th July marks 'Reading Together Day' so get those books out! More information about this event can be found here: https://literacytrust.org.uk/news/families-across-uk-invited-take-part-reading-together-day-16-july/

 

As always, please contact me if you have any questions and I'll be happy to answer them! My email address is ejoyce@sawley-jun.derbyshire.sch.uk Please also share any work you're proud of on your Class Dojo profile so we can celebrate your efforts! 

 

Have a fantastic week, Year 4!
