Dosbarth 4

Autumn 2018

Welcome back to school.

In D4 this half term we are studying The Romans whilst in literacy we will be writing poetry and in the style of Fairy Tales. In Maths we will be concentrating on mastering place value. We are promoting 'Respect' throughout the half term.

 

Routines:

Homework, reading books and spellings will be given out each Thursday. This gives children a chance to check they understand the homework before the weekend, although this year there will be a Homework Menu from which to choose a task from each week that will be stuck into the front of each homework book. Homework is due to be returned on Monday whilst spellings and tables are tested on Thursdays. Included in homework is a spelling menu based on optional activities which should help your child learn high frequency words.

Each week your child will be given an online MyMaths homework task which can also be accessed in school if your child chooses to come to MyMaths club.

 

Fruit-Tuck is collected each Monday and is 20p per day. A selection of apples, oranges, grapes and bananas is provided.

PE kit should be in school on a Monday and Thursday this half term.

America Day Celebrations

 

The pupils in D4 have been studying America during their Thematic lessons. The boys and girls have learnt about the key events in American history and why Americans celebrate Independence Day on the 4th July. The boys and girls performed a range of songs to a packed audience and they even showed everyone how to line dance!

All our guests were treated to American treats baked and created by all the boys and girls in the school to end the celebration.
