St. Therese’s Class (Year 4)
Welcome back to Term 4! We hope you had a restful and enjoyable half term. Our topic this term will be ‘Vikings and Anglo Saxons’. The children will get the chance to finish their long houses and also make a Viking hat or boat.
The children will be reading a book called ‘Arthur and the Golden Rope’ as part of English, which explores the theme of determination and perseverance which links in with our school values. In Maths, the class will be learning about fractions and decimals. The RE unit for this term is called ‘Jesus the Saviour’.
Our class assembly will take place on Friday 6th March. We hope you are able to come and watch us!
As usual, we expect children to read at least three times a week in order to develop a real love of reading and books. Please do take the time to hear them read at home, and record this in their journal.
Homework and spellings are set on a Friday and are due in on Thursdays. Spellings and times-tables test will continue to take place on a Thursday, so do please support your child with preparing for these.
To enhance your child's learning in school, Mathletics homework will continue to be set every Monday (due in the following Monday by 8.50am) - the units set link with the work that your child has been doing that week in school, and should consolidate their understanding further.
Due to some parent feedback during last term, we are aware that some of the homework set is not in the same layout that we have shown the children in class. If you are able to look at the homework before Friday then if there are any problems, we are more than happy to go over it with your child before they complete it at the weekend.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs McNeil and Mrs McAlpine
