We hope that you all had a good half term break and we really enjoyed meeting your parents at the consultation evening. So far, our class have already had many successes this term with an excellent educational visit to a woodland habitat and a brilliant performance of a harvest rap during recent celebrations. We are already proud of how hard you are all working.
Well done to all children who have been awarded a Shining Star certificate!
In Literacy our first writing focus will be poetry and we are looking forward to helping you to write and create performance poems.
Our spelling focuses are varied because we are continuing to practise words from the Year 3 and 4 list while also learning a variety of spelling rules and how words are made up.
Last half term we spent a few weeks revisiting homophones (same sound, different spelling and meaning) and now we are looking at prefixes.
Our first focus this half term has been using 'in and im' to make words have their opposite meaning.
As an example using the prefix 'im' to the root word 'possible' makes 'impossible' and so on.
Our maths work this week will start with calculating using money and move on to weight and measure.
Please don't forget to keep practising your times tables, you will need to use these a lot this year so being fluent will really help you. Keep revisiting each one from time to time. Remember last year you should have been learning your 3 and 4 times tables and in this term you should be trying to use the 6 and 9s. If you are secure on these then why not make a good start on learning the rest.

This year the school will be helping this worthy cause by having a fund raising day where we all wear something spotty and enjoy a special school lunch menu.
