Year 4 would like to take this opportunity to wish all families a very Happy Loy Krathong. We had such a lovely day on Thursday seeing all of the children in their spectacular outfits and making Loy Krathongs for the children to take home and float.

In Literacy, we continue with persuasion, learning skills of applying emotive language, modifying statements and the power of 3. Next week we will be pulling all of our hard work together and writing our leaflets to present to Miss Brown.

In Numeracy, we have begun our unit on time which we will work on until Christmas. Time is a notoriously difficult unit for children so any extra conversations you can have at home asking your child to tell the time, or how many minutes it is until the next hour or half hour will assist. At the moment we are focusing on units of time (seconds, minutes, hours, days etc) and the relationships between them so that we can confidently convert between seconds, minutes and hours.

In Humanities, our map work continues by creating climate maps of India. In Art, we have created our final designs for our batiks ready to colour match and then begin our work on the final product.  Again, as the children are working with hot wax and fabric dyes please can you ensure that they have an art shirt or apron in school.  Computing continues our work using scratch. As Scientists we are now building on our skills using keys to classify and we are going to begin to create our own key to classify animals which are indigenous to India using google slides.

Many Thanks,

     The Year 4 Team
