Summer Term 5 Oak Class newsletter

In English we will be reading Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We will write adventure stories, letters and playscripts. Our Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation work will concentrate on prepositions and determiners; using a comma to separate the main clause from the subordinate clause and using effective conjunctions in our work. We will continue to revise punctuation for speech, using fronted adverbials and subordinate clauses in our writing.

In maths please keep making sure the children know their times tables. Any extra help from home with this would be great as all Year 4s are expected to know all tables to 12x12 by the end of year 4. We will continue work on writing, ordering, comparing and rounding decimals and then look at money. We will use all four operations with money and compare and order amounts of money.

Our topic will be the Mayan Civilisation for the first two weeks then we will be concentrating on the Geography of our local area and map skills. The children will investigate different types of maps, be secure in explaining their geographical position in the world and have the opportunity to do their own map making.

Other important information:   PE will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so please remember to bring full PE kit, we will be doing PE even if it is light rain so it would be advisable for your child to have a waterproof in school with them.

Homework – Please ensure your children keep reading regularly, keep learning the times tables and their related division facts. These are really important and once learnt, really help the children’s understanding in many areas of Maths. The grid homework will become an Around the World homework. The children will be given facts about a country and from these facts they will need to find out what the country is and present information about it. This needs to be handed in on a Tuesday and they will get Maths homework on Monday to be handed in on Friday.

Thank you for all your support.
