Our Trip to Teston Park
On Wednesday 18th May, Year 4 had their school trip to Teston Park. We all had a great time and all the children were extremely well behaved. Although a long walk and quite tiring, the children all did really well.
We were able to learn about the flow of the river and even got see how the lock worked.
The children also created some lovely sketches of Teston Park and had a go at making a landscape picture with watercolours.
This term, the children completed their Electricity topic by making torches. They had a look at how torches were made and then designed and created their own working torch. There were some great ideas!
Our Year 4 Learning Journey
In Year 4 (June), all children will have to take a times table test. It is extremely important that the children continue to learn their multiplications and divisions throughout the year in order to develop their speed and accuracy.
Check your Times Tables knowledge...
Please find below the power point presentation for the Multiplication Check. This will take place over the first three weeks in June.
Please continue to learn spellings from the Year 3 and 4 word list. You could play games such as scrabble and boggle where the children have to make up their own words. Continue to identify tricky spellings in reading and discuss the meaning of different words. Sometimes spellings can be learnt in different ways using rhymes and saying words slightly differently, emphasising all the sounds in order to help remember them.
