Maple Class 20-21


Summer 2

Hello Maple Class! I hope you all had a lovely half term and enjoyed time in the sun while keeping yourself safe.


We are now into our final half term of Year 4 and the next few weeks will be very busy as we engage in lots of exciting learning opportunities to meet our objectives.


In English, we are continuing to develop our use of conjunctions and vocabulary to vary our sentences. We will be writing a diary entry using descriptive language and organising our writing into paragraphs.


In Maths we are looking at reading, writing and converting time between analogue and digital 12 and 24 hour clocks. We will also be learning to compare and classify shapes based on their properties and sizes, as well as estimating, comparing and calculating different measures including money in pounds and pence.


Our PE days will remain Monday and Wednesday, so please make sure full kit is worn to school instead of school uniform. I hope this lovely weather continues but please remember to bring a jumper if it looks likely to rain.


For homework, please remember to complete a page of your times tables book each week, including the division questions! We have been progressing with our times tables at a great pace and we all have targets to achieve this half term. If you have time, please also try to spend some time on TTRockstars and Spelling Shed throughout the term - the login details are in your homework folders. We will be doing a TTRockstars soundcheck at the end of June so the more we practise, the better our results! You also need to read at home at least 4 times please.  This includes reading independently at home, so you are allowed to fill in the reading record yourself.  We check all reading records and times tables books every Friday so please remember to bring them into school to prove your hard work! 


I am looking forward to achieving lots with you!


Miss Scott
