Welcome back to the Summer Term.
Year 4 have some fantastic projects coming up during the Summer term and we start off with....
This term the children have started their new topic ' The Romans' and are loving it so far! We have been busy learning Roman battle formations and are moving on to designing their very own Roman pottery. What's more, the children have been busy creating newspaper articles about the battle between the fierce Celtic Queen Boudicca and Emperor Caesars Roman army! Year 4 have enjoyed researching all about the Romans and are excited to continue this.
The Year 4 Team are amazed by the creative and wonderful World Book Day costumes! Below are a few fantastic characters we spotted throughout the day.
All fun and games were had by not only the children but the staff as well during the Merton Junior School Bake Off 2019!
Week beginning 12th November 2018
This week we have been looking at learning our times tables in an easy and quick fashion. We even know how to do our 17 times table!!! That's impressive! Can you use this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXdHGBfoqfw to have a go yourself and learn a really tricky times table?
Can you use it to learn a really easy times table?
What a fantastic start to the half term we have had - Trick or treating fun and, of course, plenty of hard work thrown in.
We have been reminding the children that reading at home is very important and we will always reward those who read frequently. The school policy states that each must read at least 3 times each week. When we look at the home school books, we register from Saturday to that Friday how each child has been reading at home. If they do read 3 times each week they will be given a bronze star which is worth 3 house points. If they read 4 times each week they will be given a silver star which is worth 4 house points and if they can manage to read 5 times between Saturday and Friday they will be awarded a fantastic gold star worth 5 house points.
Remember - house points are all counted up to go towards your teams total at the end of each week!! Make sure you are reading plenty and helping both yourself and your team to be the very best!!
