Holy Trinity CofE Primary School (Merton)

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School

YEAR 4

 What Have We Achieved This Week:

I WANT MY MUMMY!

Ancient Egypt provides the focus for our topic this half term.  We will learn about the discovery of Tutankhamen and investigate ancient civilizations, looking at comparisons and contrasts with Ancient Greece and their influences on the rest of the world.  In art we will have fun working with hieroglyphics and making our own ‘papyrus scrolls’ as well as creating Egyptian fans worthy of any god / goddess!

 

English

This week, we have discussed the question: Should children participate in Sports Day? We have structured our thoughts into a 'For' and 'Against' argument and have written a conclusion.

Maths

We have started to look at statistics. We have presented this as pictograms and in bar graphs.

Year 4 English Homework Due in 20th June 2018

Speaking and Listening homework

 

From Wednesday to Friday (20-22 June) Year 4 will be doing short presentations on their passions.

This week's homework is to practise your presentation. You are allowed to make some PowerPoint slides if you want to but this isn’t necessary. Alternatively, you could make a poster; bring in a prop or just talk through your passions with enthusiasm.

 If you need to, you can create prompt cards but these are to remind you not for you to read from.

Please see the sheet in your homework book for the day on which you will be presenting so that you can be prepared.

 

Remember practise makes perfect!

Notices:

PE for 4T continues to be on Monday and Thursday this half term.

 

Playtime Snacks

If you wish to provide your child with a snack, please ensure that it is a fruit or vegetable as we are a healthy school and would like to promote this.

 

PE

We will have P.E. lessons on a Monday and a Thursday, so please make sure you have the correct clothing (labelled) in school on these days.

 Please can you make sure your child has a fully labelled PE kit including: socks, PE jumper and well-fitted plimsolls. Please speak to the teacher if you have any issues with this. PE kits should be in line with the school's policy and therefore no football kits are allowed to be worn during PE lessons. 

 

Reading records

Please keep your Reading Records up to date. You need to make a note of the book and pages that you have read and get this counter-signed by an adult at least three times a week. We will be checking the diaries every Monday and we would like to see 4 or 5 entries per week. Children can of course read their own books from home, as well as school library books.

The Daily Mile

It is now a requirement for children to have an extra 20 minutes of exercise a day in addition to playtimes and PE. Therefore, the whole school will be engaging in the The Daily Mile. Year 4 will be doing this straight after lunch.

The aim of The Daily Mile is to improve the physical, emotional and social health and wellbeing of our children – regardless of age or personal circumstances.
