Things to help with learning

We expect the children to be reading as much as possible. Reading is crucial for huge aspects of learning and really helps develop children's creativity and vocabulary in writing. We are encouraging the children to record when and what they have read in their reading journals. 

 

Times Table Rockstars is a great website to develop the children's times table recall. In year 4, children are expected to know times table facts 1-12. 

 

Practise spellings each week. We focus on a range of spelling patterns as well as they YR3/4 spellings. We have been monitoring these each half term. Document attached. 

Welcome back to Spring Term 2. What an exciting term it is going to be! It is sure to be filled with lots of fantastic activities linked to our topic 'Ministry of Magic'. I can’t believe we are now over half way through the year! The children are continuing to make excellent progress so I look forward to seeing that continue!
