Homework: We have split the year group into two different Maths groups so the children will either be in Mrs Nichols’ group or Mrs Jones’ group.
Homework consists of weekly spellings and times tables in addition to Maths and English. Spellings, Maths and times tables are all set on a Friday. English is set on a Wednesday.
Reading: this should be done three times a week and the reading diary should be signed at least three separate times. If it is signed 5 times in one week then the children receive raffle tickets for a chance to win a book at the end of each term.
Homework Diaries and Reading Diaries need to be signed by parents or guardians at the end of each week and this will be countersigned by the adults in the class every Monday morning.

Our current Year 4 Topic is ‘Out of Africa’. We had a fantastic WOW day which consisted of learning to play Djembe drums, creating African sunset art and learning to cook African doughnuts called Mandazi.
Year 4 parents will also be invited to this year’s Harvest Festival and a
letter will follow shortly.
Wow Day - Africa
We have been looking at the Maasai tribe of Kenya, Africa.
We found out that they were beautiful bead necklaces. In art, we designed and made our own Maasai inspired necklaces using card, paints, pasta and different coloured string.
Please take a look at the photos of these. They’re great.
