Welcome to Class 4
During our last half term at school we will be learning all about fairy tales. We will be reading traditional tales and fairy tales and comparing these to alternative ones. We will be using lots of story language and developing our own story writing skills.
This term we are focussing on the following in Maths.
Counting - Counting in multiples, counting forwards and backwards to help support addition and subtraction
Shape- Learning about 2D and 3D shapes and naming them. Creating patterns using shapes.
Money - Paying for items and learning about change.
Weighing- Using the balances to accurately weigh items, looking at which is heavier/lighter.
Measuring - Measuring length and problem solving involving length linked to toys.
Part-Part-Whole model- to help us with addition and subtraction and finding the difference.
and continuing with number work, addition, subtraction etc weekly in Quick Maths
The children have their homework folders, please make sure you are reading with your child five times a week and record this in their reading record. Also please complete the 5 a day activity on doodle maths. This is a quick activity to help understand what areas your child needs support in and will adapt according to their answers so please try to let your child complete this themselves so the results and future learning can be accurate.
Well done to all the children reading their reading books regularly this is noticeable in your child's progress with their reading. Their books will be changed weekly and some children have received word envelopes to help them to learn high frequency words. Please read with your child as regularly as possible and re-read the books to develop understanding, confidence and fluency.
Also don't forget our reading stars we have in the classroom and encourage your child to collect a blank book review to complete. The children are responsible to getting these independently and showing them to me in the morning.
Please sign their reading diary weekly so we know your child is continuing their reading at home. Thank you.
