Year 4

Week beginning 13th January

In Maths 

We will be continuing to apply our times tables to mathematical problems.

In English 

We will be starting a new Talk for Writing unit this week on Fairy Tales, We will start with our hook and then we will use our model text to find grammar features that we could use in our writing.


This week we will be finding out the main parts of the eye and using our enquiry skills to find out what is needed to be able to see. We will then be applying this to explain why there are differences between the sight of humans and animals.

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.
