St. Therese’s Class (Year 4)
Welcome back to our final term of Year 4!
We will be busy this term preparing for our upcoming Sports Day. We are starting to learn about living things in Science and classifying animals and plants. In Maths we are developing and understanding statistics and interpreting data charts.
During our English lessons we are learning about persuasion and formal letter writing.
Homework will be given out every Thursday to be returned the following Tuesday. Homework will consist of spellings, sentence work, times tables and a Maths activity.
Weekly Mathletics to be set. We would like children to score around 100 points per week.
Reading books can be changed once the whole book is read and an account written in the reading record. Please listen to your child read every night and thank you for your continued support with their spellings and times tables.
Please keep up to date with our website to find out more information about Year 4.
