Year 4 St John Bosco Class Page

Welcome to St John Bosco class page.  Our teacher is Mrs Riddell.

Information for this half term:

MTP Spring 2 KS2 Urban Warriors

We have been looking at ‘The Tyger’ by William Blake in English.  The children really enjoyed exploring the language within the poem.  Next week, they will be writing their own poem in this style about Tigger.

We have also been working extremely hard in Maths and looking at fractions and will continue this next week.

Keep going with the Times Table Challenge – there’s two weeks left!

Our curriculum information for this half-term is:

MTP Spring 1 KS2 Attack of the Robots Final

What a super week we have had! The children have been busy using their strategies for division to find the quotient – you can ask them to show you! Some of us even worked with remainders.  In English we’ve been innovating our own stories and thinking of some very interesting characters.  I’m sure we will have some fantastic stories next week.

Next week, Miss Moriani’s Times Table Challenge begins again so look out for the packs coming home on Monday.  We are also looking forward to seeing your homework projects on Friday. A letter has gone home today but you can also check our Curriculum Newsletter on the website.

 

We have made a great start to the Spring Term.  Our PE days are now  Thursday and Friday.  We are currently changing to a new way of practicing our spellings and will soon be sending home some information about this.

 

Times tables Challenge

Thank you to the whole of St John Bosco class for taking part in our times tables challenge this half term. Everyone completed the challenge and is now so much better at their times tables now than they were at the start, it was fantastic to see you all on the stage in assembly receiving your certificates! Also, thank you to parents for supporting your children with this homework – they couldn’t have done it without you.

The times tables fun does not stop here, however. All the children are now signed up to Times Tables Rock stars and have user names and passwords. Please ensure that they are continuing to practice on here 3-4 times per week for 15 mins at a time to keep them going until the next times tables challenge which will take place in the second spring term.

CAFOD Fair – Friday 12th October

Year 4 are very excited to be hosting this year’s CAFOD Fair for the school next Friday. They have been making games for the children from across school to take part in and are looking forward to making lots of money for CAFOD next week. The theme is ‘Brighten Up’ so we will be wearing brightly coloured clothing and designing brightly coloured stalls. We ask all children from across school to join us by wearing loud and colourful clothing. Please send your child in with money in a named and labelled envelope on Friday as all children from across school will be visiting the fair. This will be a children only event and will take place during school time. We are also very grateful for any donations of cakes for our cake stall.
