Year 4

Week beginning 17th December

In Maths 

 We will continue looking at time: we will practise telling the time on both digital and analogue clocks. In addition, we will look at intervals of time  (for example Break starts at 11:15 and lasts 20 minutes. When does it end?) It would be really helpful if you could talk to your child about time and practise telling the time with them.

In English 

We are looking at different forms of poetry such as haikus, kennings, shapes poems and calligrams.


We will continue out  'How Humans work' unit which focuses on the human body. We will look at the function of the heart, the eyes and the teeth.

You can help your child by

  • Continuing to practise their Maths passport objectives with them and revise all their times tables knowledge.

  • Listening to them read at least three times a week. Please make sure you also sign their planner when they have read. It's also really beneficial when you to read to your child.

  • Practise their spelling skills. They have spellings in their planners that they should learn.
