Year 4 Weekly Blog 14/2/20

Date: 14th Feb 2020 @ 3:44pm

Welcome to this weeks' Yr 4 Blog. It has been our first full week back after CHET and the children have earnt their half term break. It was internet safety day on Tuesday and after a whole school assembly, the children learnt and discussed ways that they could stay safe whilst being online. They also produced some really eye catching and informative posters which demonstrated how much they had learnt from the day. 

The children will have brought home today their clay owl that they made during their visit  to CHET. As you would surely agree, they  have put in lots of effort and were very proud of their achievements. 

In Maths we have been drawing and interpretting line and bar graphs. Working out what scale to use is a tricky concept to master so extra work at home would be extremely useful. 

We have also been investigating the events during the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb and the children drew a time line of events using pictures to help them. From this, they could easily retell the events of the discovery. They will use this the first week back during their diary writing task. 

We have had some further information regarding the national Y4 times tables test which is taking place in June. 

There will be 25 questions based in the 2-12 x tables. They get 6 seconds to calculate and input their answer before the question diappears from the screen. There are a number of helpful online resources to help you child improve their X tables facts.

Hopefully these resources will help to improve your child's recall of the times tables. 

Enjoy your half term  break and we look forward to seeing you back at school on Monday 24th February. Remember it is outdoor games on Mondays. 

With kindest regards, 

The  Year 4 Team.
