It has been a very frosty week, but Athena class have worked super hard!

This week in English, we wrote a letter persuading people to recycle! We used a lot of the AFOREST features to convince people that they need to recycle to protect our planet.

“You should recycle your used plastic so you don’t add to the 8 million tons of plastic being dumped in the Ocean”
“The amount of paper we throw away each year is enough to heat 50 million homes for 20 years!”
“Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”

In Mathematics, we have continued to learn strategies to multiply numbers together. This week we built our confidence with short multiplication and learnt long multiplication.

“I liked short and long multiplication as you do it in steps”
“I have been using all the times tables I have been learning at home all week!”

We have started our DT projects! We are creating electrical gadgets to take to the jungle. Firstly, we had to research existing gadgets and items used by explorers. After, we designed a gadget in groups. One group is making a hat with a torch attached; another is making a heated sleeping bag; while others are making shoes which light up the way! We are hoping to finish these on Monday.

Tuesday is pantomime day! Please bring a packed lunch.
Wednesday is Toy day.

Please ensure that your child reads every evening and signs the Link Diary. It is still really important to hear them read regularly. We are hoping that all of the children will know their all of their times tables by July. 5 minutes practice a day is the best approach. Spelling is a real target for improvement in our class so any extra practise will really help


Home Learning

Year 4 are given weekly homework that is set on a Tuesday and handed back in for marking on the following Monday. This consists of an English activity and a Maths activity. The children are also given weekly spellings to learn, which are tested on a Friday. The mental maths test will be on a Thursday morning; this will consist of either times tables or number bonds.
