Reading books will be changed regularly. Children will read on a regular basis with the teacher or learning support assistant on a 1:1 basis, please ensure your child’s book is in school every day.
We started year 4 using “Voices in the Park” by Anthony Browne. By using just the pictures of the text we have created exciting adjectives to describe what is happening in the pictures. Through the text we have used role play to create speech and develop a further understanding of the text. We wrote in 1st person from the viewpoint of one of the dogs to create a wow write.
Following on from “Voices in the Park”, we studied The Ghost thief. This was a spooky story that gave us lots of opportunities to develop our reading skills.
We have started the year looking at counting in multiples and place value of 4 digit numbers.
The children have used a range of resources to help them to understand how to count in multiples securely.
Each child has log on details and a password for times tables rock stars. Please encourage your child to complete these as often as possible as times tables knowledge is incredibly important. Times tables rock stars is a free APP that can be downloaded unto any mobile device. Throughout the year competitions are held using times tables rock stars.
