Welcome to Year 4's Blog - November 2020
Hello and welcome to our blog. Our new Dimensions theme is 'A Right Royal Battle' which is all about the Battle of Hastings.
Please find attached our What I Should Know (WhISK) sheet; on here you will find what our learning will be focused on.
Our homework will be based on key skills and the WhISK sheet.
Practise the 6, 8 and 9 times tables. Make sure you know them off by heart and can answer questions even if they aren't in order (eg 6x9, 2x9, 11x9)
Read every day - this can be a book from home, school or online; fiction or non-fiction. Remember to record this in your reading diary.
Use the WhISK sheet to broaden your understanding of our theme - A right Royal Battle. You could:
• Create a top ten interesting facts sheet about the Normans.
• Do some research to find out more about swords and shields. Design your own shield.
• Try making a Norman soup (peas and beans, cabbage, nuts, berries, leeks, turnips, carrots, parsnips, onions, parsley, and garlic).
Use a range of techniques, to help you to learn the spellings for each week.
