Hello and welcome to Year 4 - Squirrel Class.
Our Class teacher is Mrs Brown (Monday- Wednesday am) and Mrs Franklin (Wednesday Pm- Friday). Mrs Brown and Mrs Franklin teach alternate Wednesday afternoons. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Strawbridge. Mrs Toone is an additional adult who supports us every morning.
Our next topic is ‘Who really built the pyramids?’
This is a humanities topic investigating Ancient Egypt and the discovery of the pyramids. We start our topic with a trip to the Tutankhamen exhibition in Dorchester - Tuesday 25th February.
In English, we will be writing a newspaper report based on the archeological digs when the pyramids were discovered.
Maths will focus on measuring area then moving on to decimals and fractions. Multiplication is still a big focus as move towards the check in June.
Times tables is a big focus in Year 4.
As you may be aware, children will be taking part in the Multiplication Check in the summer term. Children are expected to know all of the times tables up to x12.
As much practise at home will certainly be beneficial, not only for the purposes of the check, but once children are confident with their times tables, it opens up many possibilities when solving maths problems mentally.
Please continue to enjoy TTRockStars as well as other games available online.
