Spring 2nd half newsletter

05 Mar 2013

Year 4 Spring Newsletter Second Half Term 2013
5th March 2013

                              Year 4 Spring Newsletter Second Half term 2013

Well, who would have believed that we are already half-way through Year 4?
We have had a great half term and crammed so much into it.
Here is a summary of what is coming up this half term:

Lessons will continue to the end of the Spring term
Please ensure your child brings their swimming kit each Monday.
(A costume, towel and hat are essential)
For Monday 11th March, as 4JL will be going on their trip, there will be a double swimming lesson for 4AG/HS  that week. There will be no swimming for 4 AG/HS on Monday 18th March, as 4JL will have a double session.  Nobody will miss out!

We are continuing with our theme Location! Location! Location!
In English we will be looking at stories that raise issues and dilemmas. We will be reading the novel 'Varjak Paw'. The Big Write focus will be linking paragraphs, using descriptive phrases and using different ways to start sentences. We will also continue to work on our comprehension skills.

In Maths, areas of study will include Measuring perimeter and knowing the difference between area/perimeter, constructing and interpreting bar graphs, adding numbers by partitioning, estimating and checking by approximating. Subtracting 2- and 3-digit numbers, using appropriate ways of calculating to solve problems. Adding/subtracting near multiples of 10 from 2- or 3- digit numbers. Adding HTU using formal/informal written methods, estimating and checking by approximating.  Using doubling, ×6 multiplication/division and related facts. Comparing and ordering fractions; locating fractions on number line. Recognising equivalence of decimal and fraction forms of 1/2s and 1/10s. We will also, as ever, incorporate solving word problems in lessons.

In Science we will be learning about habitats. This will be incorporated in our school trip to the East Reservoir (for more information about this please visit  http://www.wildlondon.org.uk

In Geography we will continue to look at the Indian Village of Chembakolli. On the 8th March, we will be having a representative from ActionAid coming to school to talk to both classes about the work they do to help the people of the village. We will be combining this with activities such as Indian sweet making, cooking and making Mendhi patterns for our hands.

In RE we will be looking at the importance of Easter for Christians.
Dates for your diary:
Chess Breakfoas 4AG/HS 9 - 10 am Friday 8th March
Scholastic Book Fair Friday 8th March
Chembakolli Day Friday 8th March
Trip to the East Reservoir:
Monday 11th March for 4JL
Tuesday 12th March for 4AG/HS

As last term:
Maths homework will be sent home on Fridays to be returned by the following Thursday.
Spellings will be set weekly and tested a week later (Year 4 AG/HS Mondays and Year 4 JL Fridays). We will continue to set the English homework on the reverse of the spelling sheet.
Reading Books:
4JL will be changed through the week and each group will have a specific day when books are changed.
4AG/HS will be changed on Mondays and Tuesdays
. (Books can only be changed when parents have signed the Home-School Diary to say that the book has been read, shared and discussed.)

We hope that you have signed up for parents evening on 25th and 26th March and look forward to meeting up with you then.
Best wishes for another fantastic half term.

Ms Soar, Mrs Green and Mrs Leftwich
