Welcome to Ospreys!
I hope you have all had a lovely summer and are all rested and ready for your first term in year 4.
Our topic this term will be 'Heroes and Villains' where we will begin our literacy work based on the story of Supertato and a certain evil pea!
In geography we will be becoming map experts, using our map work skills to solve clues about some well known superheroes before moving onto comparing European countries to Great Britain. We will even have a go at designing and making capes in DT whilst thinking about materials fit for purpose.
This term you will be going swimming with Mr Wells on Tuesdays (starting 12th Sep) so please make sure you have your swimming kit each week.
P.E will be on Thursdays so please make sure your P.E bag is in school ready.
Maths (Set on Wednesday and due in on the following Monday every other week)
Maths homework will be set every other week (alternating with grammar and punctuation) and will be a follow on activity to consolidate and extend from the week's learning. Times tables are also very important for children to be continuing to practise to help them become more fluent in them.
Grammar and Punctuation (Set on Wednesday and due in on the following Monday every other week)
Grammar and punctuation work will be set every other week (alternating with maths) and will be an activity to help children consolidate their learning from literacy lessons. Sometimes the homework may be a consolidation activity from a previous week's learning to help children to recap.
Spellings (Set on Wednesday and tested on the following Monday)
Spellings will be set on Wednesday based on the spelling rule/pattern we have been learning in class that week and will be tested on the following Monday. Occasionally, spellings set may be a list of previously learnt spellings as a way for children to recap these.
Please make sure your child is reading regularly at home and recording their reading in their reading journals.
Please feel free to pop in and see me if you have any questions or concerns.
